European Commission - Press release
Brussels, 12 December 2017
The European Commission has announced today 13 new actions worth €174.4 million under the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa to support refugees and host communities in the Horn of Africa region.
The European Commission is delivering on its promise to help the Horn of Africa recover from the destructive drought of 2011, overcome its chronic problems and set out on the path of development. Today the Commission is adding €22 million to its humanitarian aid in the region. The new money will help build the resilience to future disasters of at least one million Kenyans and Somalis.
Brussels, 05 August 2011 - Today Andris Piebalgs, EU Commissioner for Development announced the decision to step up Europe's long-term commitment to Somalia with an extra €175 million in development assistance. The funds will flow into Somaliland, Puntland and other regions where viable security conditions and minimum levels of governance have already been established, as well as in Central Somalia, where stability is improving and the conditions allow for development assistance to make a difference.
La Commission a proposé aujourd'hui la création d'un «programme européen commun de réinstallation». Ce programme vise à faire de la réinstallation dans l'UE un instrument plus efficace de protection des réfugiés, en renforçant la coopération politique et pratique entre les États membres.

A few words from the Ambassador
Dear Reader, Cher lecteur,
I'm proud to present to you LINK!, the first newsletter from the European Union Delegation to the African Union, in joint cooperation with all EU Member States representations to the AU.
The establishment of the EU Delegation to the AU last year was an important political statement by the EU: the recognition that the AU and its Commission had become a strategic partner in our relations with Africa, and that, if we wanted to be taken seriously in this partnership, we had to strengthen our presence in Addis.
OVERALL GOOD MAIZE AND SORGHUM YIELD PROSPECTS
In general the climatic conditions were favorable for maize and sorghum development for most of the countries in Eastern Africa during the main crop season of 2006. The main climatic concern during this crop season was the negative impact of flash floods on food security, mainly in Ethiopia, South Sudan and more recently in Somalia.
