While many alternatives have been proposed, few have received widespread acceptance. A number of studies and official statements have been published recently that reject development aid in its current form.


Jerzy Buzek, the Polish president of the European Parliament, has suggested that future EU commissioners should compete in Europe-wide elections to get a "democratic mandate". Buzek, who is on a two-day visit in Berlin, made his proposal during a speech delivered at Humboldt University on Monday (22 March), according to the Polish Press Agency (PAP).

The European Commission's reform of technical cooperation, has become an integral part of the EC's work, according to Gary Quince, EuropeAid's Director for African, Caribbean and Pacific Countries. It was only a couple of years ago that Mr Quince, like many Commission staff, first began hearing about ‘The Backbone’ – the shorthand for the Commission’s policy document to reform the way it delivers technical cooperation.
Haiti is still reeling from a devastating earthquake, but its leaders don’t want the humanitarian relief operation to detract from the country’s long-term development objectives and the Commission has offered its support, according to top officials. The earthquake, measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale, killed an estimated 200,000 people and left the capital in ruins.
2009 figures proved that genetically modified crops are witnessing a new "wave of growth" throughout the world, but they are decreasing in Europe, a recent report revealed. Globally 14 million farmers (700,000 more than 2008) planted 134 million ha of GMOs, thus increasing by 7.2 percent over 2008, according to the annual report of the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA).
