33 views

On 16 May 2012, Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Development, welcomed the European Report on Development 2011/2012 in a speech given at the European Commission, in Brussels. Funded by the European Commission and seven Member States, this annual independent report sheds light on the most important development concerns from a European perspective. This third edition examines the pressing issue of water, energy and land constraints and how they interrelate. It looks at how these resources can be managed effectively with the ultimate aim of promoting growth that is both socially inclusive and sustainable. The pressure on resources is increasing as the demand for water and energy is expected to rise by 40% and for food by 50% by 2030. Under the title Confronting scarcity: managing water, energy and land for inclusive and sustainable growth the European Report on Development looks at the roles of the public and private sectors in managing natural resources for inclusive and sustainable growth.
