Sixteen directors and high-level officers from the national civil protection bodies and the disaster risk management agencies of southern Mediterranean partner countries will gather in Rome from 5 to 7 November 2019. Together with experts from the French, Italian, and Spanish civil protection systems, they will identify a common roadmap to increase national and regional capacities to work with the European Union Civil Protection Mechanism (UCPM).
In October 2019, Israeli authorities approved the advancement of well over 2.000 housing units in illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank. The European Union's position on Israeli settlement policy in the occupied Palestinian territory is clear and remains unchanged: all settlement activity is illegal under international law and it erodes the viability of the two-state solution and the prospects for a lasting peace, as reaffirmed by UN Security Council Resolution 2334.
