Our video guest this week is Mr. Pedersen; he is the director of the FAO Liaison Office with European Union and Belgium. In this interview Mr. Pedersen explains how the FAO is working with the EU. Furthermore, Mr. Pedersen elaborates on the work of the FAO towards the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals. In particular, Mr.  Pedersen stresses on the issue of food security. He presents the various actions and campaigns, such as the 1 billion hungry campaign, to illustrate the work done by the FAO in this area.

What is Public Technical Assistance and how should it incorporate the requirements of the Aid Effectiveness Agenda? The European Network of Implementing Development Agencies, EUNIDA, offers some answers to these questions.

African nations make up 36 of the 50 nations whose food supplies are most at risk, according to the Food Security Risk Index of 163 countries, compiled by risk analysis firm Maplecroft. Extreme droughts and high poverty rates, as well as poor infrastructure for transporting agricultural products, render Sub-Saharan Africa particularly vulnerable, it said.

The Ministry of Trade and industry has started a sensitization campaign on Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) in all sectors of economy. The EPAs are wide ranging trade agreements covering goods, services as well as areas of broad economic cooperation between East African Community (EAC) partner states and the European Union (EU).
