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.

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.

Nilqgħuk fis-sit tal-Kumitat għall-Iżvilupp (DEVE). F'Lulju 2014 kelli l-unur li ninħatar President tal-Kumitat.
 
Kważi biljun ruħ madwar id-dinja jgħixu f'faqar estrem. Ħafna aktar nies qed iħabbtu wiċċhom mal-ġuħ u l-mard, jew m'għandhomx aċċess għall-kura tas-saħħa jew għall-edukazzjoni. Madankollu, l-isforzi għall-iżvilupp globali, skont il-qafas tal-Għanijiet ta' Żvilupp tal-Millenju, wasslu għal progress evidenti, u dan l-aħħar rajna lil miljuni ta' persuni jitneħħew mill-faqar. Madankollu, fl-istess ħin qed naraw ukoll żieda fl-inugwaljanzi u jeħtieġ li nsibu modi biex it-tkabbir ekonomiku jkunu jistgħu jgawdu minnu aktar persuni.
 
Il-kontribut tal-UE għall-appoġġ tal-iżvilupp huwa essenzjali, u l-appoġġ parlamentari u l-iskrutinju huma elementi importanti. Il-Kumitat tagħna jipparteċipa fit-teħid ta' deċiżjonijiet rigward il-baġit għall-infiq tal-UE fl-għajnuna, isegwi mill-qrib il-Kummissjoni Ewropea, is-Servizz Ewropew għall-Azzjoni Esterna u dawk kollha li jużaw il-fondi għall-għajnuna tal-UE, u jinsisti biex ikun hemm koordinazzjoni aħjar bejn il-pajjiżi u l-aġenziji donaturi. Aħna nipparteċipaw fit-tfassil tal-liġijiet li jikkostitwixxu l-għajnuna għall-iżvilupp tal-UE. Niltaqgħu wkoll ma' uffiċjali, partijiet interessati u esperti mid-dinja kollha sabiex niddiskutu soluzzjonijiet u nisimgħu dak li verament hemm bżonn fl-oqsma ta' interess tagħna. Nistiednek tiċċekkja regolarment l-aħbarijiet u l-avviżi, tikkonsulta d-dokumenti tal-laqgħat jew issegwi wkoll il-laqgħat tal-Kumitat b'xandira diretta.
