André Dellevoet, Executive Manager of the Africa Enterprise Challenge Fund (AECF), is our special guest this week. He explains the main objectives, funding and eligibility of the Fund which aim is to catalyse private sector entrepreneurs in Africa to innovate and find profitable ways of improving market access and functioning for the poor – especially in rural areas. The donors who have already agreed to contribute to the AECF are the African Development Bank (AfDB), the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP), the UK Department for International Development (DfID), International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), and the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, (NMFA). Until now, the Fund disposes of a start-up capital of 36 million USD. It is hoped that this will grow to 100 million USD in 3 years.

"The EU is speaking with one voice in the international climate negotiations and it is important for the EU to clearly show that we are jointly prepared to take the step needed for the climate negotiations." This is what Minister for the Environment Andreas Carlgren says, who is in place in New York to take part in the climate summit being held at the UN General Assembly.

At an informal meeting in Brussels on 17 September, 27 Heads of State and Government established the EU's position for the G–20 summit in Pittsburgh on 24 and 25 September. There is an urgent need to reach a successful outcome at the UN climate conference in December, but negotiations are progressing too slowly. "We need to stop the acting and start the action", Prime Minister Reinfeldt stated. Financial resources must be scaled up to reduce the effects of global warming, and all countries, except the least developed, are called upon to contribute.
On Monday 14 September President Nicolas Sarkozy took possession of the report of the panel chaired by economist and Nobel Prize laureate Joseph Stiglitz. France created the group in 2008 to examine the perception gap between GDP and economic reality. GDP is criticised for - amongst other things - failing to reveal the approaching economic crisis. The report submitted to the President of the Republic advocates twelve measures to “enrich” the GDP indicator.
