CTA contributed to the 4th edition of the European Development Days (Stockholm, 22-24 October) by organizing a Roundtable on “Global Land Acquisition: trends and challenges”, held on 22nd October 2009. Speakers examined the new challenges posed by global agricultural land acquisitions and discussed the need to promote responsible international investments in agriculture by agreeing a minimum set of principles and measures to coordinate the large-scale transnational land deals. Around 300 people attended the Round table bringing different views, which ranged from multilateral organizations, to farmers organizations, NGOs and food net importer countries like Japan. CTA  also sponsored the participation of 30 ACP experts to the event. Furthermore CTA and ACP partner organisations had the opportunity to showcase their  products and services on 12 stands in the DevelopmentVillage.
The 2971st External Relations Council meeting held in Luxembourg on 27 October 2009 expressed its concern over the security situation in parts of the Sahel region, in particular in Mauritania, Mali and Niger. The Council recognized the serious challenges that the governments of the region face and the need for: strengthening the presence of the State, fostering development and good governance, combating trafficking of arms, drugs and persons and addressing the impact of climate change. Recent events indicate that the region runs the risk of becoming a safe haven for terrorist networks and activities.
