On Thursday, the High Council of the Judiciary (CSM) took delivery of 4,500 copies of the Guide to Citizens’ Rights and Obligations, as well as 500 copies of the Code of Ethics and Conduct for Judges, from the European Union (EU). Both documents, drafted by the CSM, have been produced to give citizens guidance about their rights and obligations and the services available to them.

Digital innovations and the opportunities they offer to women in agriculture have the ability to transform every link in the agriculture value chain. However, despite the advancements in technology and digitalisation, the gender gaps continue to widen. Women are 14% less likely than men to own a mobile phone and 25 % fewer women and girls use the internet. This means female farmers, particularly in rural areas, often experience difficulties accessing relevant information, financial products and services and markets.

Youth associations, public and private organizations announced back in March their support of a roadmap to empower youth in The Gambia. The Youth and Trade Roadmap, which has been developed as part of the International Trade Centre’s Youth Empowerment Project (YEP) with the support of the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa, places skills development and entrepreneurship at the heart of a new effort to create jobs and opportunities in the West African country. Around 100 representatives from more than 40 organizations gathered in the Gambian capital, Banjul, for a workshop to assess and validate the Youth and Trade Roadmap.

The European Union remains committed to its partnership with South Africa, while South Africa looks forward to an increase in trade thanks to the SADC-EU Economic Partnership Agreement. This was the message from the celebration of the 68th anniversary of Europe Day at an event in Pretoria hosted jointly by the EU Ambassador to South Africa, Marcus Cornaro and his wife Astrid, and the EIB Regional Representative, Tom Anderson, in the city yesterday.

Enrolment in primary education in developing countries has reached 91 per cent but 57 million children remain out of school. More than half of children that have not enrolled in school live in 48 countries from Sub-Saharan Africa, which are members of the 79 African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP). An estimated 50 per cent of out-of-school children of primary school age live in conflict-affected areas. Sub Saharan Africa is home to 17 of the 33 countries and territories the International Finance Corporation (IFC) of the World Bank Group classifies as 'fragile or conflict affected'.
