Climate Change threatens to exacerbate current challenges to the achievement of the MDGs. At the same time, there is a link between access to energy and fighting poverty. 

The EU's external aid providers try to combine access to energy, necessary for the achievement of the MDGs, with an increased political awareness among decision makers on the role energy can play in sustainable development. 

To know more about the expected outcomes of that strategic goal, EU journalists are invited to attend this EJC-EuropeAid seminar on 13-15 April in Brussels. 

Participants will have the opportunity to meet with Commissioner Andris Piebalgs, responsible for Development, along with other key players from the EU’s institutions for full background briefings on policies and projects in the field.

Among the speakers featured are key officials, independent analysts, MEPs and NGO representatives.

Please note that the working language of the seminar is English. 

Travel, accommodation and some meals are covered by the organisers.

If you are interested in this seminar, please register and apply online at or contact Cara Smith (

Development and State-building in South Sudan.

By Apollo Kut AlierDevelopment and State-building in South Sudan.28 March 2014 at 21:58There are a few things the government of South Sudan cannot risk to grapple with. One is the stance it adopts towards the so-called rebels; the armed men and women who have receded to the woods in defiance of Juba. Their misgivings may be ill-placed, and at times even wild,but that is no reason to ignore them.The government is better off opening doors of dialogue with this malcontents than seeking to bomb…See More
