The European Union and its Member States have progressively put in place a comprehensive external migration policy and strengthened the work along the Central Mediterranean route. Saving and protecting the lives of migrants and refugees, breaking the business model of smugglers and traffickers and providing legal pathways, while addressing the root causes of irregular migration and forced displacement: these are the aims at the very heart of the EU's policy.
Today, the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission, Federica Mogherini, the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Sweden, Ann Linde, and European Commissioner Karmenu Vella released the following statement on the EU Arctic Forum held in Umeå (Sweden):
Two important summits took place in the margins of UNGA this week - The UN Climate Action Summit and the UN Summit on Sustainable Development Goals - where the EU expressed its strong commitment on accomplishing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development towards a peaceful and prosperous world, with human well-being on a healthy planet at its core.
The project aims to strengthen community resilience to climate change through increased management of sun and water use. One of the main objectives is the development of ecotourism and the economic improvement of communities.
With a contribution of USD 637,500 (EUR 562,500), the European Union aims to strengthen the capacity of the target communities of Dare in the Municipality of Dili to adopt climate-smart practices in mountain farming and improve food security for families by increasing and diversifying agricultural production.
