Child abuse is pervasive in Jamaica. Forty-five thousand reports of child abuse were made over the five-year period 2010-2015, almost one third of this number were reports of sexual abuse. Every part of the society must play a role in ending child abuse.

The announced execution of six death row inmates in Indonesia, including a Dutch citizen, for drug offences is deeply regrettable. This would be the second round of executions since November 2013.

The EU is opposed to capital punishment in all cases and without exception, and has consistently called for its universal abolition.


L'annonce de l'exécution de six prisonniers, dont un ressortissant néerlandais, détenus dans le couloir de la mort en Indonésie pour des délits liés aux stupéfiants, est profondément regrettable. Il s'agirait de la deuxième série d'exécutions depuis novembre 2013.

L'UE est opposée à la peine de mort quelles que soient les circonstances et sans exception, et elle n'a cessé de réclamer son abolition universelle.


Today's violence in Egypt during protests on the occasion of the fourth anniversary of the Egyptian revolution has resulted in the loss of lives.

I call on all parties to show restraint. Freedom of peaceful demonstration must be safeguarded and dialogue is the only way forward.

I extend my condolences to the families of those killed.


The overall objective of this compendium is to give an overview of all the development programmes managed by the European Union Delegation in Zambia between 2000 and 2014. Most of the programmes were financed by the 10th and the 9th EDF, but specific budget lines also supported thematic programmes. Additionally, the 8th EDF projects that had not been completed by 2000 or received complementary funding are also presented.

Based on these objectives, a common cycle was established with training and exercises aimed at the decision-making structures, management and deployment of the African Standby Force (ASF) at the continental level. Named AMANI AFRICA or "Peace in Africa" in Kiswahili, the first cycle was conducted from 2008 to 2011, using the EURORECAMP project as a tool.
