Our video guest this week is Mr. Mona Herbert, he works for the German foundation for World Population (DSW) in Uganda. On the occasion of his intervention at the Brussels Development Briefing on population growth and its implications for rural areas in ACP countries, Mr. Mona Herbert explained the challenges coming with population growth, especially with regard to the youth. He stressed the need of youth council centres and pointed out that one can not reach the millenium development goal concerning universal primary education without recruiting more teachers to educate the growing number of pupils.

Agriculture can help to slow climate change, but should be ready to adapt to the impact of global warming, said Agriculture Committee MEPs and scientists at a public hearing on Wednesday."Agriculture can provide solutions for the future", given its direct relationship with the earth and living things, said Parliament's rapporteur report on agriculture and climate change Stephan Le Foll (S&D, FR). A new Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is therefore needed to take account of the impact of global warming and to mitigate climate change. "A new CAP", as "manager of the bio-sphere", would guarantee the transition to a new model of production and "ecologically, economically and socially efficient agriculture", he added.
The Rural Development Committee has voted on the last proposals from Member States/regions for using EU Recovery Plan and CAP Health Check funding and other transfers within the CAP to address issues including the economic and dairy crisis, and climate change. In the period October 2009 – January 2010, all rural development programmes were modified and the additional funding of about billion is now ready to be invested in agriculture, the environment and broadband in rural areas. The January 2010 RDC voted on the last 7 of these modifications. The majority of the funds will be concentrated in the areas of bio-diversity (31.2% of all funds, or 1.5 billion) and water management (26.9% or €1.3 billion).
