The Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA) is an initiative of the European Union (EU), aimed at strengthening dialogue and cooperation on climate change with developing countries. The Borschette center, located in Brussels, recently hosted the 2012 GCCA Global learning  meeting, which gathered a wide range of partners. The Indian Ocean Commission (IOC) -which is an intergovernmental organization that brings together Seychelles, Madagascar, Maurice, Comoros and Reunion Island (France) to encourage cooperation- was invited to the event. We had the opportunity to speak with Fatoumia Ali Bazi,  Project Manager  at the IOC, and former speaker at one of the ACP regional briefings. She explained to us the main priorities  of the IOC and future projects on climate change at a regional level.

The next Brussels Development Briefing will take place on 27th September, 2012, and  focus on ‘Climate change, agriculture and food security: proven approaches and new investments’.
It will address issues related to agriculture and food security in a changing climate, and how agriculture can increase resilience to climate change effects. In particular, it will: (i) raise awareness in ACP countries on the key challenges posed to agriculture by climate changes; (ii) increase exchange of information and expertise on strategies to develop climate-smart agriculture and proven successes; and (iii) facilitate networking among development partners.
The briefing, wich will be held on 27 September, 2012, will be organized in collaboration with the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS).
Around 120 ACP-EU policy-makers and representatives of EU Member States, civil society groups, research networks and development practitioners, and international organizations based in Brussels.

According to recent updates, the European Commission has adopted a proposal to amend rules on honey to clarify the true nature of pollen following a European Court of Justice preliminary ruling.
