  • [01] Commission clears joint control of Ormecon Chemie

    The European Commission has granted clearance under the Merger Regulation to plans by Future Capital AG (Germany), Canada's CDPQ, SAM Holding AG (Switzerland) and Zipperling-Kessler GmbH & Co. KG to acquire joint control of Ormecon Chemie GmbH & Co. KG. Ormecon is currently solely controlled by Zipperling.

    [03] Commission provides € 1.7 million for biodiversity conservation in Central Africa

    The European Commission and the Gabon Ministry for Development Planning and Programming have agreed a project on biodiversity conservation which will focus on animal species specially associated with Central Africa. The total cost of the project is €2.3 million, of which the Commission will contribute €1.7 million. The project will add to scientists' knowledge of the region's most characteristic animals -- forest elephants, gorillas, turtles and whales. Specific studies will be made of the demographic structure and population dynamics of these species, their current conservation status and the reasons behind their geographical distribution. The conservation of Central Africa's biodiversity is not only of international ecological importance, but also offers a potential source of income through the development of ecotourism.

    [04] La Commission octroie €4,41 millions pour la formation dans la protection des forêts tropicales en Afrique centrale

    La Commission européenne et le ministre de la Planification et de la Programmation du Développement du Gabon ont signé le 20 décembre 2002 un accord sur l'appui à la formation dans le secteur de la gestion des forêts du Bassin du Congo d'une valeur de €4,41 millions sur quatre années. Ce projet vise à renforcer les capacités de deux institutions de formation de cadres en charge de la gestion des ressources naturelles en Afrique Centrale : l'ENEF au Gabon et l'ERAIFT en République Démocratique du Congo. Il apportera une assistance technique et des moyens pour réaliser certains investissements nécessaires, un appui au personnel et au fonctionnement des deux écoles, dans le domaine de la gestion de la scolarité, de la programmation et du contenu des formations et de la gestion du corps enseignant.
