Conferences and summits: InfoPoint conference: Child labour free cotton
CLEAR Cotton is an EU funded flagship project to eliminate child labour in cotton value chain implemented in Burkina Faso, Mali and Pakistan between 2018 - 2023. ILO and FAO, working with local actors, applied an area -based integrated approach tailored to specific and difficult contexts. This innovative project addressed the main root causes of child labour: weak legal framework, limited capacities of public authorities and social partners, poverty, low literacy levels, lack of skills, cultural traditions, and misconceptions on child labour. Through differentiated synergetic activities, the implementing partners helped improve policy and legal frameworks, raise awareness about the consequences of child labour to gain beneficiaries' ownership. The strengthened capacities of key stakeholders, including public authorities, social partners, and cotton cooperatives, helped increase knowledge and data about child labour. Working directly with affected communities, ILO and FAO contributed to address poverty through income generating activities and Village Saving and Loans Associations. Thousands of children were withdrawn from work and placed in accelerated schooling centres, older children received vocational trainings to help them get a better employment. The approach piloted in CLEAR Cotton is currently replicated in the new EU flagship project CLEAR Supply chains in the coffee production. CLEAR Cotton results and reports are collected on this website.During the conference DG INTPA, ILO and FAO will present the key results of the project CLEAR Cotton. We will also briefly announce the start of the new project CLEAR Supply Chains.The project CLEAR Cotton aimed at eliminating child labour and forced labour in the cotton, textile and garment value chains in target producing countries (Burkina Faso, Mali and Pakistan) through enhanced national legislation and policies and addressing the basic needs and rights of children engaged or at risk of child labour, and of victims of forced labour. The project applied an integrated area based approach that is embedded in the cotton value chain in cooperation with local producers and international buyers.SpeakersRigo Belpaire - Acting Head of Unit INTPA E3- Private Sector Engagement & Employment Sophie De Coninck, Head of Operations at Fundamentals Branch, ILOLucie Pelfort, former Project Officer on CLEAR Cotton, ILOBadra Alawa, former Chief Technical Advisor of CLEAR Cotton, ILOAriane Genthon, Programme Officer in the Rural Transformation and Gender Equality Division, FAOBeata Plonka, Policy Officer in INTPA E3 in charge of child labourMaria Rosa De Paolis, Active Senior, former INTPA policy officer in charge of child labourLanguage: EnglishQ&A session languages: English RegistrationRegister for onsite participation at the InfoPoint premisesRegister for online participation to the Webex meeting (Webex link will be communicated upon registration)Read the privacy statement.

Training and workshops: International Spectroradiometer and Broadband Radiometer Intercomparison
Lombardy
Key dates: 31 May 2024: Application deadline 17 - 21 June 2024: Execution of measurements Registration period ended on Friday 31 May 2024, 23:59 (CEST) Organised annually by the European Solar Test Installation (ESTI) laboratories of the Joint Research Centre (JRC), the event consists of a week of uninterrupted measurements of solar radiation performed by participating instruments to be assessed against reference instruments.More specifically, the exercise assesses the amount of broadband solar irradiance (direct and global normal) and spectrally resolved spectral irradiance (direct and global normal) measured by broadband sensors and spectroradiometers. For the former, the conversion factors will be provided, using as a reference the set of ESTI's absolute cavity radiometers directly traceable to the World Radiometric Reference (WRR) via IPC-XIII held in Davos (CH); for the latter, several performance statistics indicators will be calculated, with focus on the relative spectral content in different spectral bands. The results will be published by the JRC in an official report. Several other prototypes and custom sensors are also eligible for participation and the report foresees a dedicated section for these instruments if they are not directly comparable with reference instruments.Launched in 2011, the first ISRC edition focused primarily on photovoltaic (PV) research and application. Over the years, the range of interested participants has gradually differentiated encompassing not only laboratories in the PV field, but also space agencies, national metrological institutes (NMI), universities, research groups and manufacturers of measurement equipment operating in the fields of climatology and meteorology.31 JANUARY 2024ISRC 2024 - Invitation and instructionsEnglish(229.33 KB - PDF)Download

Conferences and summits: InfoPoint conference: United for land: Our Legacy, our future – observing desertification and drought day 2024
Desertification and Drought Day 2024, "United for Land: Our Legacy. Our Future.", will spotlight the future of sustainable land stewardship. The theme is a global call to mark the 30th anniversary of the UNCCD - the sole legally binding treaty to manage and restore the world's land for the sustainability of humanity and the planet. As the European Union is a key actor in the combat against Desertification, Land Degradation and Drought (DLDD), the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union is co-hosting an event, together with the European Commission (DG INTPA), to observe this day. Up to 40 per cent of the world's land is already degraded, affecting close to half of humanity. Further land degradation will lead to escalating energy and food costs, with long-term socio-economic impacts. Desertification and Drought Day is a pivotal moment for raising global awareness and mobilising all parts of society in support of sustainable land stewardship. Please join us, the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union and the European Commission (DG INTPA) in observing this important day together. A pre-recorded video message by UNCCD Executive Secretary Ibrahim THIAW will kick us off, together with welcoming remarks by Luc JACOBS (Special Envoy for Climate & Environment, Belgium) and Aurelie GODEFROY (Deputy Head of Unit, INTPA F2-Environment, European Commission). The event will then feature a bespoke screening of the documentary, 'Le Perimetre de Kamse' (12:10 - 13:00), on community-led efforts against desertification in Burkina Faso:"In the north of Burkina Faso, desertification is eating away at the land and immigration is emptying the villages. In Kamse, the remaining inhabitants have embarked on a pharaonic project with tools from another era: digging a network of dikes and ponds in the oven, using shovels and pickaxes, and then planting thousands of trees to cross the desert to make conquered areas green and fertile. A battle fought by women, while a new threat, this time from jihadists, looms on the horizon. Long shots, flush with the dry ground, bodies emerging in the blinding heat, a dike rising, a place transformed. In Kamse it is hoped that those who have emigrated will return."A subsequent panel discussion (13:00-14:00) will highlight the work of two NGO's (Humundi and CARI) and programmes that Belgium and the European Commission support on the topic. The challenges and opportunities of COP16 of the UNCCD (Dec. 2024 in Riyadh) will also be addressed. Please also join us for a lunch reception at Kamilou Arts-Loi following the InfoPoint (14:00-15:00).SpeakersAurelie Godefroy, Deputy Head of Unit, INTPA F2- Environment, Sustainable Natural Resources, European CommissionLuc Jacobs, Special Envoy for Climate and Environment (Ministry of Foreign Affairs Belgium)Ibrahim Thiaw (pre-recorded video message), Under-Secretary-General and Executive Secretary of the UNCCDFrancois Grenade, Advocacy officer, Humundi / ex-SOS Faim (Belgium)Manon Albagnac, Chargee de mission Sahel et Desertification, Cari, Member of the UNCCD CSO Panel (France)Claude Croizer, Environment expert, Enabel (Belgium)Niclas Gottmann, Policy Officer Land and Environment, INTPA F2, Environment, Sustainable Natural Resources, European CommissionLanguage: EnglishQ&A session languages: English and FrenchRegistrationOnsite (InfoPoint)Online (Webex Meetings)Read the privacy statement.

Training and workshops: Copernicus Thematic Workshop on Compliance Assurance
This Workshop on the use of EO to support Compliance Assurance is organized by the Knowledge Center on Earth Observation (KCEO) in collaboration with DG DEFIS and structured around three distinct objectives, each corresponding to a specific segment of the workshop: User needs: Analyze and underscore the role of Earth Observation in compliance assurance within both the EU and the broader international policy landscape. This includes a comprehensive examination of the policy context, key regulations and policy areas, and the relevance of EO to both the public and private sectors. Current products and services: Review the existing challenges and opportunities related to compliance assurance within the Copernicus framework. This involves evaluating current products and services, ongoing research activities, and identifying any knowledge gaps. Future developments: Identify emerging needs and requirements that will contribute to shaping the future and potential development of Copernicus and EU research activities. We invite you to register before May 31st. Register here Compliance Assurance (CA) refers to the process and mechanisms designed to ensure adherence to EU laws, regulations, and policies by individuals, organizations, and Member States (MS).It comprises three components:Compliance Promotion: Focuses on raising awareness, educating stakeholders, offering technical assistance, and engaging in consultations to promote understanding and voluntary compliance.Compliance Monitoring: Involves data collection, inspections, audits, risk assessment, and reporting to ensure adherence to EU rules and to identify areas of concern.Compliance Enforcement: Comprises various measures such as infringement procedures, financial penalties, safeguards, sanctions, cooperative dialogue, and action plans to rectify non-compliance.These three components of CA work in concert to ensure the effective implementation t of EU laws, safeguarding the integrity of the EU's single market and citizens' rights.Earth Observation (EO) can play a crucial role in all components of CA by offering a comprehensive and objective view of our planet and how it changes.Compliance assurance spans various EU policy domains that rely on regulatory frameworks and directives. While few legislative acts are solely dedicated to CA, CA is an indispensable component of most regulations and directives on resource use, where EO may significantly contribute.Examples of policy areas where EO data is used for compliance include:Agriculture: The Common Agricultural Policy historically relies on EO to verify area-based aid, constituting nearly 80 % of EU funding dedicated to agriculture and rural development.Environmental Monitoring: The Commission uses geospatial intelligence to investigate complaints regarding the deterioration of habitats protected under the Nature Directives.Marine Surveillance: The European Fisheries Control Agency and the European Maritime Safety Agency use the Copernicus Maritime Surveillance Service to regularly provide data to national authorities, notably identifying illegal fishery activities.Security: The Copernicus Border Surveillance Service is used to monitor and secure EU borders, ensuring compliance with security and immigration regulations.Pollution: The Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service supports reporting and analysis, offering products and services that describe past, current, and future air pollution fields.

Conferences and summits: InfoPoint conference: Local Private Sector and Nutrition for Women and Children
Dietary changes are affecting the entire world population. With the increase in consumption of processed products, the private sector is playing a growing role in the field of nutrition. In developing countries, the nutritional challenge is all the greater when combined with massive problems of under and chronic malnutrition. In these contexts, more than elsewhere, quality health care and adequate food in the first 1000 days is critical. In this Infopoint, after reviewing the basic principles of the fight against malnutrition, the European Commission and GRET propose to explore the market opportunities represented by nutritional products, and to understand the obstacles to investment in the countries most affected by malnutrition, where the private sector in general faces many challenges.Representatives of local companies such as Nutri'zaza and Le Lionceau will be sharing their business models, which are based on creating decent jobs, developing economically viable distribution networks and market safe nutritious and affordable products that appeal to as many people as possible. Lastly, EU representatives will present how best to support this type of initiative and upcoming opportunities to develop value chains related to the nutritional products and share ideas for building pilot Global Gateway projects in the field of nutrition. Of the various forms of malnutrition that exist, chronic malnutrition is the most widespread, affecting over 148 million children. In most cases, malnutrition is due to inadequate nutrition and disease. The promotion of quality fortified foods is a solution with great potential for preventing malnutrition. There is as well an increase of demand of locally transformed baby food. In countries most affected by malnutrition, the local private sector has a key role to play, as there is a real market opportunity for healthy, quality fortified products at affordable prices. By working with the local private sector, GRET, a partner of EU, has a twofold objective: to help develop and make available quality local foods adapted to the nutritional needs and expectations of the 1000 days window, and to support a market-led approach to disseminate targeted quality fortified foods in a sustainable way, to as many people as possible, at lower cost. In this infopoint, three complementary business approaches will be presented.Nutri'zaza is a Malagasy social enterprise, created in 2013, whose main objective is to combat child malnutrition by improving the nutrition of Malagasy children and families. To achieve this, it distributes quality fortified products, adapted to those most affected by chronic malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies, and available everywhere at an affordable price, even to the most vulnerable. Working in urban areas, the company distributes its products, made in Madagascar from essentially local ingredients, through 3 distribution networks. Le Lionceau is a Senegalese company that offers a range of products for feeding babies mainly small jars and biscuits made on the basis of recipes and local products. The company has found its market at the national level, mainly in urban areas and now wants to take a new dimension by opening up to a wider market in West Africa. Her director will share her experience as a pioneer in the region in the early childhood food market and the challenges she faces to give a new dimension to her business.In a country like Niger, the infant flour market presents a significant opportunity, with growing demand for these products. They are currently produced by companies of different sizes: on the one hand, agri-businesses often based in urban areas, where reaching rural populations remains a major economic challenge for these urban companies; and on the other, small units managed by rural women's groups, which are closer to rural consumers and are structured in networks to enable them to pool their resources. Networking between these different types of businesses and between small A representative of the DUE of Niger will then share his experience on supporting local flour production initiatives and partnership with the private sector in the field of nutrition. In particular, it will address regulatory aspects, support through political dialogue and challenges and opportunities to promote the business environment of companies with both a social and economic vocation.Finally, preliminary findings of the International Trade Centre (ITC) study mandated by DG INTPA on a Regional Value Chain related to Formulated Complementary Food (including RUTF, Fortified Blended food (including flours), High energy biscuits, infant formulas.) will be shared. Previously identified as a high potential area, the second phase of the study now identify concrete ideas in the shape of operational roadmaps for building pilot Global Gateway projects.SpeakersHelena Guarin, Head of section Nutrition, INTPA F3- Sustainable Agri-Food systems and Fisheries unit (F3)Auxane Gennetais, Health and Nutrition Project Manager, GRETQuentin Moreau-Hamel, Policy officer, INTPA E2- Trade, Investment Climate, Entrepreneurship & Value ChainsMandresy Randriamiharisoa, Director General, Nutrizaza, MadagascarSiny Samba, Director General, Le Lionceau, SenegalTharcisse Nkunzimana, Programme Manager - EU Delegation, NigerLanguage: EnglishQ&A session languages: English and FrenchRegistrationRegister for onsite participation at the InfoPoint premisesRegister for online participation to the Webex meeting (Webex link will be communicated upon registration)Read the privacy statement.

Accepted applicants are expected to organise and pay on their own the travel to and from Ispra and other subsistence expenses. (Travel costs may be subject to partial reimbursement through the EU ENEN2plus project).Note: If you are MSc or PhD student who will have completed your first cycle of studies by the starting date of the Summer School, you are encouraged to register below. Registration period ended on Friday 19 April 2024, 23:59 (CEST) The 2024 Edition of the Summer School on Nuclear Decommissioning and Waste Management is organised within the frame of the European Learning Initiatives for Nuclear Decommissioning and Environmental Remediation (ELINDER). ELINDER aims to raise the interest of students and professionals in the important and emerging field of decommissioning and environmental remediation and to stimulate relevant career perspectives, by offering a set of learning opportunities that combine theory and practice.Through classroom training, visits of nuclear facilities and case studies, the 14th edition of the Decommissioning Summer School (DSS) offers insights to the promising field of nuclear decommissioning and related activities, like waste management and radiation protection.When a nuclear facility ceases its normal operation, a multifaceted process starts, including dismantling, decontamination and other activities. "Decommissioning" means all these steps leading to the release of a nuclear facility from regulatory control. In the European Union several nuclear facilities are closed or may stop their operation in the coming decade. The need to proceed with decommissioning creates a potential for new industrial activities.In this context, the annual Decommissioning Summer School (DSS) contributes to the acquisition of multidisciplinary competences required to support the emerging decommissioning market.This is a 5-day learning path that introduces the students to the following subjects:International status of the play in nuclear decommissioningRadioactivity and radiation protection fundamentalsDecommissioning planning processTechnological aspects of characterisation, decontamination, dismantling and site releaseManagement of the radioactive wasteSocietal aspects of decommissioningStudents who wish to obtain a course certificate are welcome to sit an optional final test.You can consult the indicative course programme here.

The New Pact on Migration and Asylum constitutes a set of regulations and policies to establish a new migration and asylum process for the European Union (EU). After its presentation by the European Commission in September 2020, the European Parliament and the Council of the EU reached an agreement on the Pact in December 2023. Following the adoption of the Pact in April 2024, marking the conclusion of the legislative process, attention has turned to implementing and operationalising the new legislationIn this context, the European Commission - following the Transitional Provisions included in several instruments of the Pact - is tasked with proposing a common implementation plan to the Council of the EU to ensure that Member States are adequately prepared to implement the Pact Instruments. Based on this common implementation plan, each Member State shall, with the support of the European Commission and relevant EU agencies, establish a national implementation plan setting the actions and the timeline for their implementation.This EMN Conference intends to launch and present the work done by the EU Commission and the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the EU to operationalise and implement the New Pact on Migration and Asylum, while, at the same time, launching the debate on the upcoming steps to take to make the operationalisation and implementation of the New Pact a reality. This Conference is hosted by EMN Belgium together with its partners the Federal Public Service Interior, the Office of the Commissioner General for Refugees and Stateless Persons (CGRS), the Federal Agency for the Reception of Asylum Seekers (Fedasil) and the Federal Migration Centre (Myria), and is funded by the European Union.

Training and workshops: 6th JRC Summer School on Sustainable Finance
On 27-28 June 2024, the Sustainable Finance Research Forum, set up by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission, will hold the 6th edition of its Summer School on Sustainable Finance. The event will be hybrid (online and in person) and free to attend.Register to the eventProgrammeDownload the programme in PDF below. General publications5 June 2024 Programme - 6th JRC SUmmer School on Sustainable Finance As policy actions to combat climate change gain momentum, and the analysis of climate-related financial risks matures, experts are beginning to shift their focus towards risks associated with nature more broadly, such as those stemming from environmental degradation and biodiversity loss, and the links between sustainability and digital technologies. While continued global disruptions and geopolitical crises may become bumps in the road to a sustainable economy, digital technologies have huge potential in the context of the green transition. There are also increasing opportunities to amplify sustainable finance in emerging and developing economies, despite their limited financial resources and infrastructure. Yet, there is a pressing need for tools and analyses to evaluate relevant risks and their consequences. This includes, for example, the practical execution of stress tests that should investigate environmental risks more broadly, by taking into account value chains, macro-financial feedback loops, and secondary effects. Finally, the integration of the social and governance dimensions into mainstream financial decision-making remains notably inadequate. For these reasons, the JRC Summer School on Sustainable Finance aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to discuss recent developments and innovations in the field of sustainable finance. By doing so, it exposes researchers to the most demanding issues faced by the industry and helps them produce policy-relevant research. At the same time, it provides independent scientific advice to policy, reaffirming the crucial role of research in informing policymaking.Organisation of the School The Summer School welcomes a broad audience, including scientists, policy officers from public and international institutions, and private-sector experts specializing in sustainable finance. To encourage interdisciplinary collaboration and the development of science-based policy, the program will include both academic sessions and policy-oriented lectures.We invite submissions on a wide range of topics related to sustainable finance, especially those focusing on the integration of digital technologies, expanding sustainable investment in emerging and developing economies, and developing tools for assessing pertinent risks.Participation details As a social event visits to the Nuclear Safeguards, Security and Standardization Laboratory (INS3L), the European Crisis Management Laboratory (ECML) and the European Microwave Signature Laboratory (EMSL) will be offered, free of charge. However, attendees are responsible for their travel and accommodation expenses. The JRC will provide practical assistance in booking reasonably-priced accommodation in the local area and arrange local transportation.Note that the event and the social dinner are free of charge upon registrationVenue This year's Summer School will again be a hybrid event, accessible both online and in person at the JRC's premises in Ispra, Italy. Nestled in a picturesque location near Lake Maggiore, the JRC Ispra campus is a leading research hub, boasting state-of-the-art laboratories and research facilities.Submission procedure Interested individuals are encouraged to submit a full paper or an extended abstract to JRC-FINANCEec [dot] europa [dot] eu (JRC-FINANCE[at]ec[dot]europa[dot]eu), including "Submission for Summer School on Sustainable Finance 2024" in the subject line, by March 15, 2024.
