Friday, 12 October 2012

To improve information sharing and promote networking, the ACP-EU Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) in collaboration with FAO, AgriCord and other partners will organise a high-level panel in Brussels on 16 October 2012, in the context of the European Development Days. Various panelists will give their perspectives on how they see the future of farmers in the context of new drivers affecting food production, trade and the environment.

Fish caught illegally off the coast of West Africa end up for sale in the European Union, according to a study by the UK-based charity Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF). The 18-month study documented 252 reports of illegal pirate fishing by industrial vessels in inshore areas off the coast of Sierra Leone. Nine out of the 10 vessels, which account for the majority of the reported illegal activities, are accredited to export to the European market.

The European Food Safety Authority has concluded that a recent paper raising concerns about the potential toxicity of genetically modified (GM) maize NK603 and of a herbicide containing glyphosate is of insufficient scientific quality to be considered a valid for risk assessment. EFSA’s initial review found that the design, reporting and analysis of the study, as outlined in the paper, are inadequate.
