The next Brussels Development Briefing on “Women entrepreneurs – key players in ACP agribusiness development” will take place on Thursday, 17 September 2015 at the ACP Secretariat (451 Avenue Georges Henri, Brussels, Belgium).

The Caribbean Farmers Network (CaFAN) has received financial assistance from its international partner the COLEACP (Europe-ACP Liaison Committee) in the sum of 20,000 Euros to assist with rehabilitation of small-farm-families’ livelihoods in Dominica amidst the devastation resulting from the impact of tropical storm Erica. CaFAN’s Chief Coordinator, Jethro Greene, has noted that “the relief contribution by COLEACP is a demonstration of their commitment to helping small farm families in the Caribbean.” As a member of COLEACP, CaFAN members have already benefited from support for training, technical assistance and market development in Europe.
