EU Ebola coordinator reports on fact finding mission to West Africa

On Monday, 17 November (17:00-18:30 CET) the Committee on Development convenes for an extraordinary meeting to get a first-hand report by Christos Stylianides on the situation in the Ebola affected countries of West Africa. Stylianides is the EU Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management and also the EU coordinator for the Ebola crisis. He will exchange with Members after visiting Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea between 12 and 16 November in order to assess progress and further needs to respond to the Ebola outbreak. The EU has collectively mobilised more than 900 million EUR in response to this crisis but DEVE Members have been critical in particular of EU Member States' reluctance to fully coordinate and scale up their efforts during the summer.

   
Conflict minerals, child under-nutrition, post-2015 development goals, EYD 2015

On 10-11 November, the Development Committee will vote on several hundreds of amendments to prepare Parliament's position for the negotiation on the post 2015 global development goals, expected to be adopted by all UN Members States in September 2015 and to be negotiated until then. MEPs will also vote on a draft resolution on child under-nutrition, a problem affecting at least 225 million children under the age of five. The European Year for Development 2015, private sector and development and legislation on conflict minerals will also be discussed.
 

   
Welcome to the new Commissioners

Following the vote of approval by the European Parliament on 22 October, the new European Commission has taken office on 1 November. The Chair of the Committee on Development, Linda McAvan, congratulated in particular the Commissioners for Development and International Cooperation, Mr Neven Mimica, and the Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management, Christos Stylianides, for their appointment.
 
In her congratulation letters the Chair underlined common priorities and invited the Commissioners to a meeting with the Committee in the near future. McAvan also congratulated Federica Mogherini for her appointment as High Representative and Commission Vice President. She will be responsible, among other things, for overseeing programming of development aid and coordination of the external relations Commissioners.
 
The election of the new Commission for the period 2014-2019 was prepared by hearings of each of the Commissioners-designate and by written questionnaires. The DEVE hearings and questions are available through the links below.

DEVE 17-11-2014 - 19:49  

The EU should come up with a detailed action plan to combat the spread of the Ebola virus, Development Committee MEPs told Humanitarian Aid Commissioner Christos Stylianides on Monday, after he briefed them on his four-day trip to the affected countries. MEPs highlighted the need to invest in these countries' health systems and not to reduce the EU humanitarian aid budget.

DEVE 12-11-2014 - 10:17  

The designation of 2015 as European Year for Development (EYD), with the motto “Our world, our future, our dignity”, coined by MEPs, is an opportunity that must be taken to raise citizens’ awareness of the EU's contribution to fighting hunger and eradicating poverty worldwide, said MEPs on Tuesday afternoon, in their first debate on possible EYD activities. The EYD must also anchor “development thinking” in institutions around the world, they added.

Tervitussõnad
 
 

Tere tulemast arengukomisjoni (DEVE) veebilehele! Minul on au olla alates 2014. aasta juulist arengukomisjoni esimees.
 
Maailmas elab äärmises vaesuses ligikaudu üks miljard inimest. Veel rohkem on neid, kes võitlevad nälja ja haigustega või kellele tervishoiuteenused ja haridus ei ole kättesaadavad. Aastatuhande arengueesmärkide raames tehtud ülemaailmsed pingutused on küll olukorda märgatavalt parandanud ning viimastel aastatel on miljoneid inimesi vaesusest välja aidatud, ent samas kasvab ebavõrdsus ning tuleb leida viise, kuidas majanduskasvust saaks osa suurem hulk inimesi.
 
ELi panus arengu toetamisse on ülioluline ning parlamendi toetus ja järelevalve on selle väga oluline aspekt. Arengukomisjon osaleb ELi arenguabi eelarvet puudutavate otsuste tegemisel ning teostab hoolikat järelevalvet Euroopa Komisjoni, Euroopa välisteenistuse ja kõikide ELi arenguabi vahendite kasutajate tegevuse üle, samuti seisab komisjon hea doonorriikide ja asutuste tegevuse parema kooskõlastamise eest. Arengukomisjon osaleb ELi arenguabi andmist reguleerivate õigusaktide koostamisel. Samuti kohtub arengukomisjon ametnike, sidusrühmade ja ekspertidega kogu maailmast, et arutada lahendusi ning kuulata, mida tegelikult kohapeal vajatakse. Soovitaksin teil korrapäraselt tutvuda arengukomisjoni uudiste ja teadete ning koosolekudokumentidega või jälgida komisjoni koosolekuid otseülekandes.
