Description
European Union: Humanitarian Aid Issues

“Every cow in Europe receives two and a half dollars in subsidy every day. That’s not sustainable.” Agricultural subsidies, humanitarian aid in Iraq and elsewhere and the relationship between development and trade are just some of the issues discussed by Poul Nielson, the European Commissioner for Development and Humanitarian Affairs on UNTV’s current affairs show, World Chronicle. The European Union provides more than half of the developed world aid to developing countries. Reflecting the European Commission’s growing role in external relations and participation in global governance, Poul Nielson outlines the EU’s collaboration with international organizations, in particular the United Nations, to further the development agenda.
