The European Commission and the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) have strengthened their partnership to boost the resilience of millions of people struggling with severe and often prolonged or recurrent food crises around the world. The agreement for €70 million contribution, signed by Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development, Neven Mimica, and the Director-General of the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation, José Graziano da Silva, on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York today, contributes to the Global Network against Food Crises to promote sustainable solutions to food crises.

In response to the latest Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), the EU is assisting the Red Cross to reinforce preparedness in Uganda and Rwanda. DRC is currently experiencing its 10th outbreak of the virus. The EU will provide humanitarian funding amounting to €100 000 (€40 000 for Rwanda and €60 000 for Uganda) to prevent the transmission of the virus from DRC, and to support the detection of Ebola cases.

The Sahel countries are confronted with numerous challenges which hold back their development potential. The countries in the region have to deal with climate change risks, increasing demographic pressure, an increasingly urban trend and the security crisis shaking the region. Agricultural yields are declining significantly, creating food security issues. In order to get through these issues and allow the region to develop, innovative solutions and research exist.

The Ivoirian branches of Veolia and PFO Africa have just agreed on a strategic partnership. As a concrete sign of this alliance, the two partners have agreed to build a water treatment plant on the Mé River, which will provide water to the Abidjan urban area. Veolia and PFO Africa have recently signed this partnership in Côte d'Ivoire.

Europe and Africa need each other in order to work in partnership on the numerous common challenges they face, said Alexander De Croo, the Belgian Minister for Cooperation and Development, during a conference preceding the reopening of the Museum of Africa in Tervuren. Last week, Jean-Claude Junker, the President of the European Commission, pleaded for a new partnership with Africa during his annual State of the Union address.
