It will allow the development community at large to meet andexchange best practices on the European Commission's reform of how it provides know-how through training, research, consultancy or technical support. The goal of the reform is to ensure our aid for developing countries happens faster and better. The launch coincides with the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty on Saturday 17 th October.

By enshrining two fundamental principles to govern relations between the member states of the European Union and the African, Caribbean and Pacific states, the 2000 Cotonou Agreement raised the expectations of EU and ACP citizens alike. It made equal partnership, appropriation of development strategies and civil society involvement into the cornerstones of EU-ACP relations. Consequently the European Development Fund (EDF), the EU’s principal tool for development cooperation with the ACP countries which is managed by the European Commission, ought to be programmed and implemented in accordance with these principles.

In the context of the European Development Days to be held in Stockholm under the Swedish presidency on 22-24th October 2009, CTA in partnership with the EC, FAO, IFAD, IIED, AGRA, Regional African Farmers Organisations will organise on 22 October (17h00-19h00) a round table on trends and challenges of the Global Land Acquisition. Recent global trends are prompting a massive increase in global commercial interest in land and natural resources. In many countries this is creating unprecedented pressures on land resources and placing new tensions on land tenure systems. We will discuss the facts, scope and main affected countries as well as the drivers behind. We will also look at the minimum set of principles and measures to coordinate the large-scale transnational land acquisitions and leases at international level in order to ensure that such investments work for the benefit of the population including the most vulnerable groups.

It will launch a call for proposals at the beginning of 2010. Between 2004 and 2006, the Water Facility financed 175 proposals, contributing €414.5 million out of the total project costs of €788 million. European institutions have doubled their support to the water and sanitation sector since 2002 . They are also spending more on basic water supply and sanitation for the poor - up from 22% of the aid in 2007 to 37% in 2009, and relatively less on large water supply and sanitation systems. EU donors give on average €1 billion every year to the water and sanitation sector, according to EUWI, the EU Water Initiative.

African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Secretary-General, Sir John Kaputin has re-iterated that the Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) have continued to pose a great challenge to the ACP Group of States at the national, regional and all-ACP levels. He told ACP chief negotiators attending the Meeting of the Technical Follow-up Group on negotiation and implementation of EPAs that the challenge is due to the fact that the EPA process has created a differentiation within the ACP as a Group and in some of the regions. Sir John agreed that ACP regions and some ACP countries within their designated regions are progressing at variable speeds. Overall, only 25 ACP countries have signed a full or interim EPA, 11 have initialled but not signed while 42 have neither initialled nor signed any agreement.
