The issue of how to control migration from Africa may have exorcised European leaders in recent years, but it could also derail the EU’s main political agreement with the continent. Eighteen months of talks on a new agreement to replace the 2000 Cotonou accord with African, Caribbean and Pacific countries will begin in the coming weeks, with EU and African leaders far apart on how to tackle migration policy.

The Department for International Development (DFID) has announced to provide a further US$71.11mn to support AgDevCo's mission to create jobs, improve food security and boost prosperity in Africa The announcement is a part of Prime Minister Theresa May's visit to Africa.

African scientists are about to get unprecedented access to enormous amounts of satellite data. This is thanks to a deal signed by the African Union with the European Commission’s Copernicus programme, which describes itself as the world’s third largest data provider. Data, and access to good reliable data, is becoming an increasingly important tool for science.

A decline in migrants from Eritrea is expected after the country and Ethiopia have made peace, Germany's development minister said on Friday after visiting the long-reclusive country. Gerd Mueller spoke to reporters in Ethiopia after meeting Eritrea's longtime President Isaias Afwerki.

The African Union wants to have a continent-to-continent dialogue with Europe, a change that could make the framework of the Cotonou Agreement implode and leave the Pacific and Caribbean states out in the cold. The 79 countries of the Africa, Caribbean and Pacific Group are due to begin formal negotiations with the European Union on 1 September to redraw the outlines of the Cotonou Agreement.

The Prime Minister has recommitted to supporting countries on the front line of instability, in order to tackle poverty and to build a safer, healthier, and more prosperous future for all. She announced that the UK will expand its diplomatic presence in the Sahel, opening two new embassies in Chad and Niger and increasing the UK footprint across the region.

As both Europe and China are turning their eyes to Africa, they can join hands to help the most less-developed continent to develop economy and address migration issues at the same time. In recent days Africa is receiving worldwide attention with several events. Accompanied by a business delegation, German Chancellor Angela Merkel was travelling this week to Senegal, Ghana and Nigeria, focusing on development aid and illegal migration.

The Cotonou agreement has regulated cooperation between the European Union and the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries since 2000. With negotiations on its successor about to start, the results so far seem mixed. EURACTIV France reports.

Chancellor Merkel has arrived in Senegal ahead of visits to Ghana and Nigeria. With nearly a dozen CEOs in tow, the German chancellor hopes that economic development will curb migration from the region. German Chancellor Angela Merkel landed in Senegal late on Wednesday as she starts off a three-country west African tour.
