European Parliamentarians for Africa August 2008: The Parliamentary Forum on Sustainable
Development and Aid Effectiveness will take place in Nairobi, Kenya, from 26-28
August 2008, and will focus on climate change, food security and aid
effectiveness. The event will bring together African parliamentarians and
experts, as well as members of parliament from Europe and Japan.

The Forum is
organized by the Association of European Parliamentarians for Africa (AWEPA) in
cooperation with the Pan-African Parliament, the East African Legislative Assembly
and the Kenya Parliament, and is supported by the UN Environment Programme and
other UN agencies. During the Forum, in response to the challenge presented by
global warming and the threat it poses to achieving the UN Millennium
Development Goals, the AWEPA will launch the African-European Parliamentary
Dialogue on Sustainable Development and Climate Change, involving African
parliamentarians and global and regional parliamentary networks. The Dialogue
will be continued through sub-regional seminars and national workshops
throughout Africa and Europe, leading to the Copenhagen climate meeting at the
end of 2009. [Forum
