InfoPoint conference: The potential of organic and biofertilizers for soil health management in Africa
Bruxelles
Reflections from a scoping study in 12 African countriesMaintaining soil fertility is fundamental for ensuring the productivity and resilience of agricultural systems. African farmers face challenges to manage soil health due to the fragility of the majority of African soils, inadequate agricultural practices, and low fertilizer use. High fertilizer import prices and limited access to inorganic fertilizers aggravate the situation. Several studies have indicated that soil organic matter content and nutrients balance can be improved at farm level through proper agronomic practices in mixed farming systems. However, fertilizers are still needed to improve productivity. Off-farm production of safe and affordable organic fertilizers and biofertilizers could provide another pathway for soil health and productivity improvement in Africa. However, a lack of information and knowledge exists regarding the production, marketing, and utilization of commercial organic and biofertilizers. In fact, many relevant initiatives exist involving various actors such as Farmers' Organizations, NGOs, and SMEs. With a view to inform policy dialogue addressing the fertilizer crisis and food security challenges, DG INTPA, through DeSIRA-LIFT, commissioned a scoping study on the off-farm production and marketing of organic and biofertilizers in 12 case-study countries in Africa. The study address the use and acceptance of organic and biofertilizers, the potential development of these inputs, the marketing systems, the support services research and advisory services, the national policies and regulatory framework . In this conference the results of the scoping study will be shared and two SMEs will share their experiences regarding the potential of commercial organic and biofertilizer production and marketing.

The EU blueprint for fusion energy
Grand Est
With recent technological breakthroughs and increased private investments the fusion industry is gaining momentum. Europe has always been at the forefront in fusion research and technology. To develop an EU path towards fusion commercialisation and build industrial capability, it is vital for the EU to capitalise on the experience gained from the Joint European Torus JET and other fusion activities to date, including the EUROfusion - Realising Fusion Energy, ITER - the way to new energy and BROADER APPROACH programmes. It is important to reflect on funding and regulatory needs and to discuss cooperation mechanisms between the governments, laboratories and industry. As a part of an ongoing process together with the Directorate-General for Research and Development towards creating an agile policy framework for fusion research and innovation, the Directorate-General for Energy invites the key fusion stakeholders to Strasbourg to discuss the current state of fusion in the EU and how to foster acceleration in fusion development. This discussion will inform concrete actions and recommendations for the Commission and EU countries to develop joint winning strategies and build a thriving European ecosystem.

Maintaining soil fertility is fundamental for ensuring the productivity and resilience of agricultural systems. African farmers face challenges to manage soil health due to the fragility of the majority of African soils, inadequate agricultural practices, and low fertilizer use. High fertilizer import prices and limited access to inorganic fertilizers aggravate the situation. Several studies have indicated that soil organic matter content and nutrients balance can be improved at farm level through proper agronomic practices in mixed farming systems. However, fertilizers are still needed to improve productivity. Off-farm production of safe and affordable organic fertilizers and biofertilizers could provide another pathway for soil health and productivity improvement in Africa. However, a lack of information and knowledge exists regarding the production, marketing, and utilization of commercial organic and biofertilizers. In fact, many relevant initiatives exist involving various actors such as Farmers' Organizations, NGOs, and SMEs. With a view to inform policy dialogue addressing the fertilizer crisis and food security challenges, DG INTPA, through DeSIRA-LIFT, commissioned a scoping study on the off-farm production and marketing of organic and biofertilizers in 12 case-study countries in Africa. The study address the use and acceptance of organic and biofertilizers, the potential development of these inputs, the marketing systems, the support services research and advisory services, the national policies and regulatory framework . In this conference the results of the scoping study will be shared and two SMEs will share their experiences regarding the potential of commercial organic and biofertilizer production and marketing.

On 29 January 2024, the Platform published its "report on a compendium of market practices", which was presented in a webinar on 6 February 2024. The compendium provides use cases on how different key market participants are adopting the EU sustainable finance toolkit for designing transition strategies, structuring financial transactions, and reporting on sustainability efforts. The compendium illustrates the initial implementation of the key pillars of the EU sustainable finance agenda as set out in the 2018 Commission action plan on financing sustainable growth and confirmed in the 2021 strategy for financing the transition to a sustainable economy. Against this background, the event is intended to foster dialogue and collaboration among financial institutions, industry leaders, the EU Platform on Sustainable Finance and representatives from the European Commission. The workshop will show how the EU sustainable finance framework can mobilise green private finance and support the real economy's transition efforts, offering business and investment opportunities to companies. Representatives of the Platform will present the compendium and its concrete use cases and discuss transition finance policies, such as transition plans and the connection with the EU taxonomy. Finally, the Platform will present its intermediate reporton monitoring capital flows, which includes a methodology to measure the effective contribution of finance towards the objectives of the European green deal, drawing on regulatory disclosures as well as market trends.

With recent technological breakthroughs and increased private investments the fusion industry is gaining momentum. Europe has always been at the forefront in fusion research and technology. To develop an EU path towards fusion commercialisation and build industrial capability, it is vital for the EU to capitalise on the experience gained from the Joint European Torus JET and other fusion activities to date, including the EUROfusion - Realising Fusion Energy, ITER - the way to new energy and BROADER APPROACH programmes. It is important to reflect on funding and regulatory needs and to discuss cooperation mechanisms between the governments, laboratories and industry. As a part of an ongoing process together with the Directorate-General for Research and Development towards creating an agile policy framework for fusion research and innovation, the Directorate-General for Energy invites the key fusion stakeholders to Strasbourg to discuss the current state of fusion in the EU and how to foster acceleration in fusion development.
