1. Executive Summary
The European Union (EU) decided to establish the African Peace Facility (APF) in December 2003 in order to respond to an African request to support its peace and security agenda based on the recognition that peace is a necessary precondition for sustainable development.
EU Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management, Christos Stylianides, who is visiting South Sudan, announces that the Commission is requesting new vital support in the amount of €50 million from the European Union for the victims of this humanitarian crisis.
"I have witnessed first-hand the immense suffering of the people of South Sudan. People who have been forced to leave their homes and desperately look for a safe place to live. People who lack the opportunity to earn a living. They have suffered enough!" said Commissioner Stylianides.
Today's World Food Day is an opportunity to reflect on how European Union aid is alleviating the world's greatest solvable problem: hunger. As we are about to pass on the work on humanitarian aid and development to the next European Commission, it is time to take stock of what we have achieved and what remains to be done.
Eradicating extreme poverty and hunger is the first Millennium Development Goal (MDG). With the MDG deadline now less than 500 days away, we have to up our game.
