European institutes and companies have begun work on a multi-million Euro effort to develop manufacturing methods for liquid biofuel from agricultural and forestry waste. The NEMO (Novel high performance enzymes and micro-organisms for conversion of lignocellulosic biomass to bioethanol) project has received €5.9m funding from the European Union. Agricultural and forestry waste, such as straw and wood chips, are mainly lignocellulose. This consists of sugars but in a form that makes them difficult to be used by microbes in the production of ethanol. Over the next four years, researchers in the NEMO project will develop enzymes that can be used to cut lignocellulose into sugar compounds suitable for fermentation. The goal will be to tailor the metabolism of microbes so that they can produce large volumes of ethanol out of the biomass sugars economically and efficiently.

This report produced by Concord forms part of the work being undertaken by European development NGOs to monitor and advocate on European aid. It reports that some of the countries deliver aid based on their own priorities and not those of the poor while addressing the symptoms and not the causes - and yet they deliver the majority of the global aid flows. It adds that evidence shows that when aid is delivered well, it has been crucial in improving living conditions of the poor in developing countries.
The European Commission welcomes the provisional figures for 2008 released today indicating that the EU's greenhouse gas emissions fell again for the fourth year running.

The European Commission has today formally approved the Annual Action Programme 2009 for the United Republic of Tanzania providing the country with € 385 million in assistance for budget support and infrastructure programmes that will enable pro-poor economic growth.

This programme is a follow-up to previous sustainable tuna fishery management projects already financed since the 5th EDF.  With a total budget of 14 million Euro, it the most ambitious tuna tagging scheme in the world. It aims to improve scientific knowledge of the state of tuna stocks and tuna exploitation rates in the Indian Ocean region.

The Briefing on “Fighting against Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated fishing (IUU):Impacts and challenges for ACP countries” held in Brussels on 29th April 2009 looked at the main challenges of IUU at global and regional levels and the private sector concerns.
