L'UE ha ripetutamente condannato i brutali attacchi e le diffuse violazioni dei diritti umani commessi dal regime siriano nei confronti della sua popolazione, anche contro minori. In generale, la tutela e la promozione dei diritti dei minori rappresentano un principio fondamentale della politica estera ed interna dell'UE. Gli Orientamenti sui bambini e i conflitti armati impegnano l'Unione ad affrontare la questione in maniera globale e i capi missione dell'UE controllano e riferiscono al riguardo.
According to information recently released by Unicef, more than children have been killed in Syria during the intense bombing by government forces of civilian neighbourhoods in the city of Homs. Is the Commission following developments in this very serious crisis in Syria with the utmost attention, so as to take action in the appropriate fora?
VINTAGE SELECTION No. 33
The EU has consistently condemned the brutal attacks and widespread human rights violations inflicted by the Syrian regime on its population, including children. The EU has called on the Syrian authorities to immediately release all those illegally arrested or detained and to refrain from all acts of barbarism, including torture and sexual abuse. It called for a full investigation of the findings of the Independent International Commission of Inquiry, which pointed to crimes against humanity, and affirmed that the perpetrators of such alleged crimes must be brought to justice.
In general, the protection and promotion of the rights of the child is an overarching objective in the EU's external and internal policies. The EU Heads of Missions monitor and report on children affected by armed conflicts. In order to have the dump released from seizure, the Municipality of Pescantina has submitted a decontamination project for the site to the Regional Authority of Veneto, which also encompasses an increase in the total net capacity of the site, the modification of its status as a dump for solid urban waste to a site for special waste and a move from public to private management.
This important project was entrusted directly by the Municipality of Pescantina to Daneco S. A, the private company that is currently responsible for managing the dump, without any call for tenders. It requested that the Veneto Regional Authority seek the necessary funding to enable it to carry out the decontamination project and make the site safe; this was in agreement with the Province of Verona and the Municipality of Pescantina. In general terms, the obligations of EU Public Procurement Directives apply whenever contracting authorities conclude with a different legal entity a contract for pecuniary interest for works, services or supplies whose value meet the specific thresholds of the directives.
In this specific case, the Commission does not possess information that would highlight a violation of EU public procurement rules. If the Honourable Member has specific information showing that there is currently a violation of public procurement law, the Commission will be glad to assess this information. According to information entailed in the question of the Honourable Member it appears that competent authorities have identified the problem and started corrective actions. We share the view of the Honourable Member that any corrective actions should be conducted without unnecessary delays and the measures taken should prevent further damage to the environment.
The decontamination and further protection of a waste dumping site is a very site-specific process and the choice of the best solution usually requires a site-specific expert opinion.

In Germania, diversi comuni hanno modificato le ordinanze relative ai mercati locali per introdurre gare d'appalto pubbliche e limiti di tempo per l'assegnazione delle postazioni per i banchi di vendita ai mercati locali. In particular, what steps have been taken to date to implement the Services Directive in the Member States as regards authorisations for bathing establishments and street traders on public land?
It covers authorisations, as well as the sector of ambulant sales and services in the tourism sector. In Germany, various municipalities have changed their local market ordinances to introduce open tendering procedures and time limitations for places for market stalls at local markets.
Amnesty International meldt in zijn jaarrapport dat in Myanmar de mensenrechten nog altijd aan de lopende band worden geschonden. Uit de conclusies van de Raad bleek dat de lidstaten positief stonden tegenover de politieke hervormingen door de regering en het parlement van Myanmar. Deze positieve veranderingen zijn met name: Om deze maatregelen te versoepelen of op te heffen is eenparige overeenstemming van de lidstaten vereist.
De EU steunt de bevolking van Myanmar sinds De EU-programma's bevorderen de rechten van de mens, helpen een groot aantal mensen die zijn ontheemd door conflicten, en versterken het maatschappelijk middenveld. Meer dan de helft van dit bedrag bestaat uit extra financiering. Er wordt nu een voorstel voorbereid om de onlangs opgerichte nationale mensenrechtencommissie te ondersteunen. Does the Commission agree with the PVV that no development aid should be given to a country where human rights are violated, such as Myanmar?
If not, why not? Unanimous agreement of Member States is required to ease or lift them. The EU has been supporting the people of Myanmar since Funds do not pass through the government and EU assistance focuses on improving health and education outcomes, as well as support to livelihoods. EU programmes promote the respect for human rights; help numerous people displaced as a result of conflict; and work to strengthen civil society.
A proposal is being prepared to support the newly created national Human Rights Commission. Naar aanleiding daarvan de volgende vragen:. Zijn er momenteel restricties voor lidstaten op het verstrekken van werkvergunningen aan personen uit derde landen? Kan de Commissie aangeven op welke feiten resp. De lidstaten bepalen zelf hoeveel economische migranten zij toelaten.
De bijdrage van migranten kan door verschillende bronnen gestaafd worden. Please answer the following questions in this connection. Are there currently any restrictions for Member States on the issuing of work permits to persons from third countries? After all, in that case, Member States can also decide themselves how to supplement their partially unemployed workforce with selected migrants.
Is the Commission prepared, on the basis of the above and the principle of subsidiarity, to terminate its role in this area? Can the Commission specify the facts or statistics on which it bases its statement that migrants often take jobs that nationals do not want to do? How does this relate to the increasing unemployment and incidence of dropping out of school among non-Western immigrant populations of the first, second and third generation?
In this context, Member States are responsible for the number of economic migrants they admit. Evidence of the contribution of migrants comes from various sources. The rate of early school leaving among third-country nationals aged was The EU's recent and current high unemployment rates are not only due to the absence of jobs, but also due to a serious mismatch between the jobs on offer and the skills people have.
Afghanistan is ranked lowest in all world economic rankings. Child mortality is higher than in Africa. There is a lack of basic medical care and schools. The drought caused suffering for around three million people in the country. Is the Commission intending to increase its humanitarian aid package for Afghanistan this year? Humanitarian needs increased in in Afghanistan mainly due to the consequences of the ongoing conflict. Also, poverty and vulnerability across Afghanistan are compounded by natural disasters droughts, floods and earthquakes.
Many communities have exhausted their traditional coping mechanisms and are thus more vulnerable to any additional shock. The Commission was active after the announcement of a potential drought in the Food Security and Agriculture Cluster and through needs assessments in three specific missions in the central highlands and northern Afghanistan. The Commission is also involved in humanitarian assistance delivery to the growing number of Internally Displaced People including people living in informal settlements around Kabul and who are awaiting assistance from local authorities in finding a sustainable solution.
The consequences of the drought are monitored by humanitarian partners. Discussions are held with development donors to ensure a link between relief and a sustainable development approach to the problems of recurrent droughts. Fighting illiteracy is a serious challenge as Afghanistan has one of the highest rates of illiteracy in the world, particularly in rural areas and among women.
Several Member States are addressing the education sector as a priority in their bilateral programmes. No entanto, o artigo 8. Does it consider it appropriate to keep the carbon tax in place when those hit hardest will be European companies? Does it not believe that the carbon tax will create negative discrimination against European companies compared to their international counterparts, causing Europe to be less competitive?
The legislation is not a new Commission Directive but a directive of the European Parliament and the Council adopted through co-decision by an overwhelming majority in the Parliament and with support of all Member States in It is a mechanism that sets an emissions ceiling and provides flexibility in terms of meeting that ceiling.
The EU ETS applies without distinction as to nationality and thus respects the principle of non-discrimination. This was an important point also for the European airlines when the law was made. The remainder will be auctioned by Member States. In principle an operator need not pay anything if he can manage to reduce his emissions to below the level of free allocations received. The Commission remains fully committed to working collaboratively with other states in ICAO towards the objective of global action.
Her bliver der ofte brugt udenlandsk arbejdskraft, fordi det er billigere. A Danish regional media outlet P4 Fyn has recently been focusing on conditions on horticultural farms on Funen. Foreign labour is often used on those farms because it is cheaper. Many foreign workers are lured to such farms under false pretences on the understanding that they will earn much more and live much better than is actually the case. They are grossly exploited by employers and at the same time push the local labour force out.
There have also been a number of reports in the Danish media about young Danes taken to southern European holiday areas to work under false pretences. European workers must be able to have faith in what they are promised with regard to working conditions. I am aware that, in March, the Commission will submit a directive to improve application of the rules under the Posted Workers Directive. Will the Commission act to penalise employers who fail to deliver on the promises they have made to migrant workers with regard to pay and living conditions?
The proposal is currently being negotiated by the Parliament and the Council and, once adopted, it should be instrumental in preventing exploitation of third-country migrants. However, it needs to be added, that Denmark is not taking part in the adoption of this directive, and it will not be bound by it or subject to its application. The article interviews UK residents who have not been able to secure discounted tickets to the park as they were only available to those with a billing address in France.
The European Commission is aware of this issue with Disneyland Paris. The operators of Disneyland Paris have responded to a previous similar complaint raised by the Luxembourg European Consumer Centre ECC that they do pursue different pricing policies in different EU countries, but that if a customer wishes to avail of a price on offer to customers on another country version of their website, they will be facilitated if they phone the customer service department at the number on the reservations page.
The Commission was not aware of further problems arising from the billing address. It is therefore up to the relevant French authorities to enforce this provision upon service providers established in France. United Kingdom citizens can obtain assistance with this issue through the European Consumer Centre for Services www. The Commission will be issuing guidance to Member States to help them with the enforcement of this provision.
He has promised to do so, but the ban remains on the statute books, and arrests continue to take place. The Commission has expressed its readiness to the Turkish Cypriot community to assist it, through the TAIEX instrument, in drafting an amendment aiming at decriminalising homosexual relations in the northern part of Cyprus. The Turkish Cypriot community responded positively to the Commission's proposal and work on the amendment is ongoing.
In the current economic climate, financial institutions, as part of their recruitment process, are seeking credit checks on potential employees. This is now becoming an issue for many jobseekers who find themselves failing such credit checks as a result of a poor credit rating. However, in some cases the reason for this failure is simply that these potential recruits have never used credit and therefore have not built up any credit history to be examined. There is no specific EU legislation regulating the conditions under which employers may check the credit rating of potential employees as part of the recruitment process.
Member States remain competent to establish conditions that would govern this checking. The directive requires that personal data must be processed fairly and lawfully, they must be adequate, relevant and not excessive and for specified and legitimate purposes. This can be the case where a decision is taken on the basis of the absence or existence of a credit record history. Without prejudice to the powers of the Commission as guardian of the Treaties, the supervision and enforcement of data protection legislation, including the processing of personal data in the context of employment by employers, falls under the competence of national authorities, in particular data protection supervisory authorities.
The Commission has no competence to monitor the compliance by data controllers, investigate possible cases of non-compliance, or to impose penalties. In relation to controlling the spread of bovine TB, what measures does each Member State have in place to deal with the spread of TB between wildlife and farm animals?
The Commission follows the TB situation in the Member States and provides them with financial support. The Commission is aware of the ongoing consideration of how best to tackle wildlife involvement in the disease. However, this is a very specific problem for which no EU harmonised legislation is in place and it is therefore in the first instance for the Member States authorities concerned to identify which the most suitable approach to address the problem may be. The approved EU co-financed TB eradication programme implemented in Ireland, for example, provides for an interim wildlife strategy which involves the capture and removal of badgers associated with bovine tuberculosis breakdowns and a Government funded Wildlife research Programme to establish the efficacy and to quantify the effects of vaccinating badgers, in support of the eradication of tuberculosis from the bovine population.
Both sets of rules are aligned to and based on the same principles. Budgetzuweisung Horizon im Bereich Gesundheitsforschung. Dies geschieht trotz der deutlichen Herausforderungen, vor denen die EU und ihre Mitgliedstaaten im Gesundheitsbereich stehen. Does the Commission believe in and support a European initiative that would centralise and coordinate biomedical and clinical research, and which would provide significant added value by addressing the current fragmented research landscape in Europe?
Similarly, health research may also be supported through the European Research Council and Marie Curie schemes in Horizon , each of which has also seen an increase in their absolute terms budgets. A greater focus is placed on supporting innovation in Horizon and this is reflected in the content of the abovementioned proposal. The Commission supports any initiative that improves our collective ability to respond to the societal challenges described in the health, demographic change and ageing theme of the Horizon proposal and notes that these do not necessarily need to imply centralisation.
There is concern that ACTA, besides affecting international trade, may have a negative impact on respect for human rights in their broadest sense. Internet users in Poland are concerned that their right to freedom of thought and expression, as well as their freedom to express their views over the Internet, will be violated after the introduction of the treaty. If so, when would this occur? Over the years, the European Union has built up a comprehensive system to protect intellectual property. EU legislation has outlined the rights that can be protected and the means to enforce them.
It also contains safeguards for the rights of citizens to free speech and free access to information and data protection.
Events & news
This is why the negotiations were led by Directorate-General Trade, in coordination with all other relevant Commission services as well as with the relevant Ministries of EU Member States. ACTA will not mandate monitoring of individuals' e-mails or blogs. It will not subcontract the functions of the police to private Internet service providers. It will not mandate the inspection of laptops or MP3 players by customs officials. However, in order to respond to concerns voiced by different stakeholders, the Commission has decided to ask the European Court of Justice to assess whether ACTA is in any way incompatible with the EU's fundamental rights.
This consultation, as well as the engagement of the Commission in open debates at the European Parliament and in national Parliaments, are intended to facilitate a concrete and fact based discussion and allow for a fully informed decision about the real effect of ACTA, both in the European and national Parliaments. Wie kann die Kommission davon ausgehen, dass die Eltern geografische Kriterien bei der Wahl der bevorzugten Schule. Wahl zugewiesen worden sind? The Commission is responsible for expenditure on the European Schools and for the school bus costs, which are reimbursed through the education allowance.
At the same time it has set itself strict environmental protection standards cf. The Commission is collecting the information it needs to answer the question. It will communicate its findings as soon as possible. Furthermore, the Commission points to the fundamental problem of the existing overcrowding several hundreds of children in the case of Brussels II and III which regrettably puts a physical limit on the intake in these schools. An Annex regarding the percentage of enrolments without priority criteria obtaining school of first choice.
In both cases BoG did not approve the Commission's request. The greatest increases are expected in countries such as Greece, Spain and Italy. The Commission is aware of the difficulties some European businesses are facing regarding access to credit. Actions supporting access to credit include the promotion of qualitative ratings and credit mediation. The Commission has put forward several initiatives to promote entrepreneurship.
The CIP already funds activities to promote entrepreneurship such as mobility for entrepreneurs, a mentoring scheme for female entrepreneurs and activities in entrepreneurship education, which will be continued as of by COSME. In the rioting, the headquarters of a political party, the Kurdish Islamic Union, was also attacked. The EU follows the situation in Iraq very closely and is concerned by the continuing acts of violence across the country as well as in the area of the Iraqi Kurdistan region referred to in the question.
Ensuring that the Government in Iraq is both effective and inclusive is the best way to defy the continuing violence. Il parco Yasuni in Equador si compone di mila ettari di foresta amazzonica. Gli scienziati affermano che i Waorani hanno caratteri unici nel Dna, dovuti allo storico isolamento. Sarebbe un paradiso se nel sottosuolo, non ci fosse un inferno di greggio milioni di barili calcolato per un valore di 7 miliardi di dollari, che le compagnie petrolifere vorrebbero sfruttare.
iTunes is the world's easiest way to organize and add to your digital media collection.
La Germania ha garantito 50 milioni di dollari per dieci anni; l'Italia avrebbe cancellato i 51 milioni di debito che le sono dovuti dall'Equador; artisti di Hollywood, Al Gore, governi nazionali e locali, organizzazioni non governative, privati, imprese hanno cominciato a versare donazioni, che sono arrivate alla cifra di milioni di dollari; quanto basta per non aprire i pozzi. Ora Correa chiede milioni di dollari nei prossimi due anni, in caso contrario il giacimento sarebbe dato in concessione.
Ma il petrolio non ha fruttato la ricchezza che era stata promessa fin dal quando fu estratto il primo barile. Nel bilancio dell'UE non figurano disposizioni in materia di assistenza finanziaria intesa ad evitare l'estrazione petrolifera. One hectare contains more native plant species than the United States and Canada combined. In , it was made a world biosphere reserve by Unesco.
In addition, it borders the Waorani Ethnic Reserve, a population which has shut itself off in a corner of the forest and asks only to be able to continue to live as it has done for thousands of years. Scientists maintain that the Waorani people have unique DNA characteristics, due to their historical isolation. Given the high level of corruption in the country, the fund is managed by the United Nations. But oil has not yielded the wealth that was promised in when the first barrel was extracted.
Ecuador has remained poor and the wealth has gone to those who refined the oil outside the country. Whether as part of its geopolitical outlook it considers conserving this quintessential biosphere reserve to be vital? Whether it has ever considered making a donation to Ecuador, in order to encourage the preservation of the Amazon rainforest?
Whether it has ever considered other proposals to safeguard the Waorani population and prevent exploitation of the oil reserves? The Yasuni National Park is certainly a uniquely biologically diverse ecosystem and the Commission considers the protection of such vital areas as crucial.

The Commission welcomes initiatives to address the challenge of biodiversity conservation and climate change, as well as to protect the interests of indigenous peoples. L'articolo 35 della Carta dei diritti fondamentali dell'Unione europea recita: Inoltre il governo siriano continua a rendere inaccessibile il paese alle organizzazioni umanitarie internazionali, impedendo di fatto il diritto all'accesso alle cure agli oppositori politici.
L'Unione ha esortato il regime a concedere immediatamente alle organizzazioni umanitarie libero accesso a tutte le aree del paese, permettendo loro di fornire assistenza umanitaria e cure mediche. Il governo siriano deve garantire e facilitare l'accesso sicuro alle cure mediche a tutti coloro che ne hanno bisogno senza alcuna discriminazione. Allo stesso tempo, l'UE sostiene gli impegni a livello internazionale volti ad assicurare una risposta umanitaria alla crisi coordinata, rapida ed efficace.
Alla luce dei crescenti bisogni, l'UE e gli Stati membri hanno incrementato il loro sostegno finanziario a favore delle organizzazioni umanitarie e continueranno a mobilitare la necessaria assistenza. A high level of human health protection shall be ensured in the definition and implementation of all Union policies and activities. The European Neighbourhood Policy is based on mutual responsibility and a common commitment to human rights. In addition, the Syrian government continues to make the country inaccessible to international humanitarian aid organisations, preventing the right of access to healthcare for political opponents.
A distinction needs to be made between health policy and political activities, and medical confidentiality needs to be safeguarded by means of a strict ban on reporting to the authorities by health workers; this is the only way that equal access to healthcare can be ensured for political opponents too. It has urged the regime to grant immediate, unimpeded and full access of humanitarian organisations to all areas of Syria in order to allow them to deliver humanitarian assistance and medical care.
The EU has continuously through statements and Council conclusions called on the Syrian government to fully respect the impartiality and independence of humanitarian workers and organisations. The Syrian government needs to guarantee and facilitate safe access to medical treatment for all those in need without any discrimination.
This website represents incitement to discrimination against workers from the new EU Member States and an attempt to confer an inferior status on Eastern Europeans. As for the membership of Romania and Bulgaria in the Schengen area, as the Honourable Member is aware, any decision on the extension of the Schengen area through which internal border control is lifted is taken by the Council, after consultation of the European Parliament. The necessary unanimity in Council for a decision on the lifting of internal border control has not yet been reached.
For its part, the Commission has repeatedly made clear that it fully supports Romanian and Bulgarian accession to Schengen as well as the Presidencies' efforts in this direction. Its position is unchanged. Respuesta de la Alta Representante y Vicepresidenta Sra. En esta fase, la UE ha de responder activamente a los cambios positivos. Of those released under this amnesty announcement, were political prisoners. In addition, the civilian government is making efforts to reach ceasefire agreements with ethnic groups in order to end the ongoing conflicts taking place mainly in border areas.
As a consequence of these events, the Foreign Affairs Council of the European Union has decided to relax sanctions. More specifically, the Council has adopted conclusions on the current situation in Burma, which include a suspension of the visa ban for the President, Vice-Presidents and cabinet members and the chairmen of the both chambers of the Parliament. Unfortunately, this relaxation of EU sanctions is rather premature, as ongoing problems and human rights abuses continue in Burma.
The benchmarks should address areas such as the unconditional release of all political prisoners, a national ceasefire with all ethnic minorities and the revision or repeal of all oppressive laws. The changes occurring in Myanmar Burma would have been unimaginable only a year ago, but this transition to a more accountable system of Government is not yet complete. An inclusive dialogue between Government and opposition represented more strongly in Parliament. The release of remaining political detainees; their majority has apparently been released already. The question of identifying remaining political detainees — the NLD is in intensive dialogue with the Government on this — needs further clarification, and the Government has made a commitment to contribute to resolving these cases.
Government showed sustained efforts in agreeing ceasefire and other arrangements with former armed ethnic insurgencies, in order to find a peaceful and durable solution. Against this background the adoption of formal benchmarks seems a less productive approach than engaging the Government in a constructive, result-oriented dialogue. Met de introductie van haar nieuwe website oefent de PVV het recht uit om het publiek naar zijn bezorgdheid over bepaalde sociale aspecten te vragen en nuttige informatie over de behoeften en problemen van burgers te verzamelen.
Viviane Reding, het commissielid voor Justitie, Grondrechten en Burgerschap, heeft alle burgers van Nederland opgeroepen om de website van de PVV te negeren en daarop de boodschap achter te laten dat Europa een plek van vrijheid is. Wat is de mening van de Commissie over de plicht van politieke partijen om de standpunten van burgers inzake sociale aspecten op de voet te volgen, en niet alleen tijdens verkiezingscampagnes?
Op welk artikel van de Verdragen baseert de Commissie haar recht om individuele burgers op te roepen om zich op een bepaalde manier te gedragen? Hoe verhoudt de oproep van de Commissie aan Nederlandse burgers zich naar haar eigen mening tot het door het Handvest van de grondrechten van de Europese Unie gewaarborgde recht op vrije meningsuiting? By introducing its new website, the PVV is exercising the right to ask the public about its worries relating to certain social issues and to collect useful information on the needs and problems of citizens.
Is the Commission planning to draw up guidelines on the preferred way of expressing political opinions in the EU? On which article of the Treaties does the Commission base its right to call on individual citizens to behave in a certain way? In the opinion of the Commission, how does its call to Dutch citizens relate to the freedom of speech and expression guaranteed by the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union? The results reveal, in particular, significant price differences between Belgium and neighbouring countries.
Why it does not use part of its budget to disseminate practical and useful information on price disparities both within individual Member States and between neighbouring Member States, drawing, where appropriate, on assistance from consumer organisations with the relevant expertise? How does it intend to improve its information policy on the prices of consumer goods, particularly for the most vulnerable consumers and those most affected by the crisis? The Commission shares the view of the Honourable Member that price levels, price disparities and the reasons for those disparities need to be carefully monitored.
The Commission's annual Consumer Market Scoreboards track price divergences between EU countries for over goods and services and juxtapose them with the levels of purchasing power in each country. The publication includes prices provided by Eurostat as part of a research project carried out with national statistical offices and other sources.
In addition, the market studies carried out as a follow-up to the Scoreboards collect price data for specific sectors. The Commission encourages a broader collection of price data that would cover all major consumer markets and all Member States.

All the Commission's price data are already publicly available on its website. The Commission actively communicates the relevant findings and data to consumer organisations and other key stakeholders in the Member States for further use and dissemination. The Commission believes that the transparency and comparability of prices is of key importance for consumers to be able to make informed decisions.
In its recent Communication on e-commerce. Gli enti territoriali, quali Comuni e Province, sono tra i primi possibili beneficiari dei Fondi diretti programmati ed erogati da parte delle direzioni generali della Commissione Europea. Tra i fondi disponibili ci sono ad esempio: Among the funds available are, for example: With regard to these and other available programmes, could the Commission clarify:.
Secondo lo studio l'efficienza energetica costa circa quindici volte in meno rispetto alle fonti di energia rinnovabili. Tuttavia l'Italia, come del resto l'Unione europea, ha privilegiato nell'elargizione degli incentivi le fonti di energia rinnovabili, snobbando invece gli interventi volti all'efficienza energetica.
EUR-Lex Access to European Union law
According to the study, energy efficiency costs approximately 15 times less than renewable energy sources. However, Italy, like the rest of the European Union, has favoured generous incentives for renewable energy sources, ignoring energy efficiency measures. Can it provide European figures on energy efficiency and on the differences, not least in terms of costs, compared with renewable energy sources? What policies will it implement on energy efficiency and will it offer incentives to encourage it?
The Commission is not aware of the report mentioned by the Honourable Member. However, we shall be pleased to receive the report for analysis. Under that directive a specific marine biogeographic region has been established for Macaronesia, covering the waters of the Azores, Madeira and Macaronesia, taking into account their specific characteristics. The dividing criterion for biogeographic regions is of crucial importance and should be adopted under the common fisheries policy.
Is the Commission prepared to establish a regional advisory council with decision-making powers, covering all the outermost regions and comprising three consultative subdivisions: In the present circumstances, the Commission believes that it would not be justified to create a specific RAC for outermost regions. The cost of maintaining a RAC with its permanent administrative structure should also be considered in this context.
I consider the French initiative for the creation of a humanitarian emergency fund for Syria to be auspicious. The Commission welcomes the French initiative and maintains constant contact with Member States, regularly sharing information about the humanitarian situation on the ground. Access to those in immediate need remains fundamental. In Syria, EU assistance consists of the provision of medical expertise, services, and stocks including the purchase of ambulances to medical facilities, as well as protection of detainees, subject to Syrian authorities' consent.
In the neighbouring countries, the funding ensures that people fleeing Syria receive emergency assistance such as shelter, hygiene kits, clothes. The outcome was positive and concrete. Valerie Amos, the Emergency Relief Coordinator, announced access negotiations and is leading a Day Response Plan that will be shortly presented by OCHA in order to provide immediate relief to people impacted by fighting. OCHA also announced that a humanitarian emergency fund for Syria would be created based on the organisation's previous experiences.
ACTA nu va cenzura internetul. El nu va mandata monitorizarea e-mailurilor sau blogurilor personale. The provisions of ACTA are a serious breach of human rights. Behind the mask of copyright protection, the freedom of information that has brought so many benefits to society in recent years is being restricted. The free circulation of information via the Internet represents both a means of emancipation for the wider public and an effective weapon against censorship. Does the Commission consider that the freedom of the Internet, one of the greatest successes of technological progress, can be sacrificed in the name of such regulations?
This consultation, as well as the engagement of the Commission in open debates at Parliament and in national parliaments, are intended to bring the discussion onto more concrete and fact-based levels and allow for a fully informed decision about the real effects of ACTA. The Commission shares the concern for freedom of the Internet and welcomes debate that questions any potential threat to it.
However, it is the Commission's position that ACTA has very little to do with a number of these supposed threats. ACTA will not censor the Internet. It will not mandate monitoring of individuals' e-mails or blogs. This agreement does not undermine fundamental rights and freedoms as guaranteed by the European treaties.
The greatest year-on-year increase was recorded by the European Regional Development Fund. By the end of , The situation of the European Social Fund is similar. However, the individual Member States do not draw on the funds equally, with significant differences existing between them. The countries most successful in drawing on EU funds are Ireland The Commission is working closely with all Member States with a view to facilitate the smooth implementation of cohesion policy programmes.
In relation to absorption rates, these depend on the financial profile of each Member State. Those with a front-loaded financial profile might appear to have higher absorption rates than those with a back-loaded financial profile. In those cases where absorption rates are low due to implementation problems, the Commission is offering advice and guidance to the Member States concerned with a view to removing bottlenecks and speeding up absorption.
The organisers of a campaign must obtain one million signatures in at least seven EU countries within one year. The use of social networks could make the initiative more democratic, significantly simplify the whole process and help European citizens to assert themselves better. In this instance, however, it is necessary to focus on European citizens who are not sufficiently proficient in the use of Internet and who are not therefore able to participate in a discussion in that way.
It is therefore the responsibility of the organisers of a proposed citizens' initiative to promote their initiative outside Internet and campaign to collect statements of support in paper form, if they wish so. The panel recently presented a new plan for sustainable development and low-carbon prosperity. The report contains 56 recommendations on how to put sustainable development into practice and integrate it into mainstream economic policy as rapidly as possible.
The report highlights, for example, the need to integrate the social and environmental costs into world prices for measuring economic activity, such as the price of carbon emissions released or of natural resources used. This will be achieved through taxation, regulation or emissions trading schemes. The report also calls for the elimination of public subsidies for fossil fuels. The main economic indicator should not be traditional gross domestic product alone. Commissioner Hedegaard has participated in the Panel in her personal capacity. The Panel's recommendations are being addressed in the European Union through several policies.
Furthermore, some of the key recommendations relate to the use of market based instruments, the internalisation of environmental costs, to green the economy and to steer consumers' choices and investment decisions in business towards sustainable development. The European Emissions Trading Scheme is implementing this approach while enabling cost-efficient emission reductions. The Annual Growth Survey encourages tax shifts away from labour to e.
In addition, there are a number of other relevant pieces of EU environmental legislation, such as product labelling to empower consumers to make more sustainable choices or the definition of common standards such as on air and water quality which enhance the quality of life. Many of these are along the lines of the recommendations of the Panel now subject to the international negotiations preparing the Rio summit.
Given that the Commission participates in the Troika, through which it conducts negotiations with the Government, will the Commission answer the following:. On the basis of what figures has the Memorandum in question been compiled, who introduced them into the negotiation process the Troika or the Greek Government and how has the reliability of the figures in question been verified? During the meetings of the Troika with ministers responsible for elaborating the Memorandum, were minutes taken and, if so, what was their content? However, the reports that the Commission and the IMF issue at the end of each review are published at the Commission and IMF websites, respectively, and elaborate on the economic developments in Greece and the discussions that took place with the Greek authorities.
These documents have been prepared by the Greek authorities in cooperation with the troika and are revised each quarter. Can the Commission say whether the above national legislation is compatible with Community law? What measures does it intend to take to ensure compliance by the Member States with the above Directive? Finanzanlagen im kohlenstoffintensiven Sektor. Markets are often dominated by companies holding high-carbon reserves such as coal and oil. A recent letter to the Governor of the Bank of England, Mervyn King, signed by a number of eminent politicians, scientists and investors, highlights that these high-carbon reserves held by companies are sub-prime assets that can pose a systemic risk to economic stability as, given the need to reduce carbon emissions, they could quickly fall in value, resulting in significant losses for pension funds and other institutional investors.
To what extent does the Commission or the ESRB monitor the concentration of high-carbon investments in the financial system? Does the Commission see a systemic risk in a high concentration of high-carbon assets in major European stock exchanges? What concrete policy measures could be taken to address this type of systemic risk? The Commission is aware of the inherent risk of any commodity price movements, including carbon-based commodities, for the financial sector. Although there is a clear need to reduce carbon emissions, the risk in the short term seems more tilted towards a rise in commodity prices, including for those commodities involving high carbon emissions like oil.
Indeed, most commodities' proven reserves are limited and about to decline, while demand, particularly by some large emerging countries is rising rapidly. Barring a major global recession, a sharp and sudden collapse of these commodities, and therewith a drop in the value of carbon-intensive companies seems therefore rather unlikely. Moreover, the claimed kind of mispricing should hardly be able to cause adjustments on stock prices that could trigger a systemic financial crisis. Such a risk could be material if valuation losses eroded the capital of systemically-important financial institutions.
Financial supervisors are currently closely monitoring the capital position of large financial institutions. Banks with an identified capital shortfall submitted plans to supervisors and EBA indicating how they will improve their capital position. Part of her vision included ensuring that more effective mitigation measures are incorporated under the new technical measures framework. Can the Commission provide details of its timetable for the technical measures framework? Can the Commission specify what key mechanisms are envisaged within the new technical measures framework in order to ensure that the impact from fisheries on cetaceans and other protected species is eliminated or at least minimised?
As technical measures are inextricably linked with regionalisation and the landing obligation, which are key elements of the new Common Fisheries Policy CFP , the timeframe for a new framework is very much dependent on when agreement is reached on the reform package. The objective of the reform of the CFP is to avoid micromanagement through detailed rules on technical measures set centrally.
For cetaceans and other biological sensitive species this would equate to setting bycatch limits that indicate a threat to specific cetacean populations and trigger management intervention. Regionally, Member States in consultation with fishermen, stakeholders and the Advisory Councils would have the possibility to develop regionally adapted mitigation measures e.
The onus would then be on Member States to demonstrate low impact on the species involved with a high degree of certainty through appropriate levels of monitoring. Sono state elaborate da un gruppo di esperti delle linee guida sull'autismo, volte a riconoscere solo l'Applied Behaviour Intervention quale metodo idoneo a curare la malattia. Quanto alle forme specifiche di intervento, riabilitazione e sostegno per i pazienti e i loro familiari, non compete alla Commissione esprimersi in favore di determinati tipi di interventi terapeutici.
Given the complexity and severity of the range of autism-related disorders, which affect the psychical components that guide the development of the social and relational aspects that are so typical of the human species, management of the disease must take into account the various factors that contribute to the complexity of the clinical profile. Specific intervention, clinical skills and rehabilitation and support for patients and their families should therefore be based on good practice, in line with the principles of scientific evidence. A group of experts has developed a set of autism guidelines which recognise only Applied Behaviour Intervention as a suitable method for treating the disease.
While it is true that this enables scientific assessments to be made, there are also other therapies, ranging from the use of communication tools to music therapy, that are able to produce effective results. It undertakes to support research on healthcare provision to women and men with disabilities through health work programmes in FP7 and its successor programme.
As to the details of specific forms of intervention, rehabilitation and support for patients and their families, the Commission does not have the competence to express a preference for particular forms of therapy. Le multinazionali presenti in alcuni paesi europei hanno pensato a un modo alternativo per riuscire ad ottenere energia dalla biomassa.
Un istituto di ricerca britannico ha studiato le implicazioni di questo progetto che prevede l'acquisto di alcuni terreni nei paesi del sud del mondo e dell'Africa nei quali vengono piantati gli alberi. Essi sono trasportati in un secondo momento nel paese di origine e utilizzati nelle industrie di biomassa per produrre energia. I vantaggi derivanti da questo processo nel medio termine sono la riduzione dell'emissione di anidride carbonica e, nel lungo termine, la riduzione delle tariffe dopo aver ammortizzato i costi del meccanismo.
I dubbi sollevati a proposito di questo sistema riguardano gli squilibri che potrebbero essere provocati alle diverse popolazioni. Esse, infatti, occupano il suolo nazionale, anche se non ne sono i proprietari e, quindi, potrebbero essere costrette a spostarsi nel caso in cui i governi decidessero di vendere i terreni.
Multinational companies operating in certain European countries have come up with an alternative way to obtain energy from biomass. This aim can be pursued by building power stations fuelled by agricultural and forest biomass. A British research institute has studied the implications of this project, which entails the purchase of areas of land in countries in the global south and in Africa, where trees will be planted. They will subsequently be transported to the country of origin and used in the biomass industries to generate energy.
All this is in order to meet the growing international demand for timber, which countries in the global north can no longer satisfy. The advantages of this process are, in the medium term, fewer carbon dioxide emissions, and, in the long term, lower tariffs once the costs of the mechanism have been amortised. The doubts raised over this system concern the disruption that various populations could suffer. They occupy national soil, even if they do not own it, and could therefore be forced to move in the event that the governments decide to sell the land.
Considering that this process, strongly called for by certain countries, could devastate the lives of entire populations that do not have the necessary resources to deal with such a situation, can the Commission state whether it intends to issue specific regulations in order to protect indigenous populations from exploitation of the land?
The Commission takes note of the concerns expressed by the Honourable Member but it would like to highlight that the so-called land grabbing issue is much broader than bioenergy and it is more generally related to the various land uses in developing countries.
The Commission supports the efforts of the international community to address this issue adequately. Furthermore, the Commission is currently assessing the effectiveness of its recommendations to Member States concerning the sustainability requirements for the use of solid and gaseous biomass sources in electricity, heating and cooling laid down in Report COM It will report shortly on whether additional EU measures would be necessary and appropriate, including EU binding criteria.
Nell'ambito delle politiche comunitarie ed internazionali, la ricerca sulla fusione nucleare in Italia sta svolgendo un ruolo d'eccellenza. In the context of EU and international policies, research into nuclear fusion in Italy constitutes an area of excellence. The construction of ITER, the first fusion power station of a size comparable to that of a conventional power station, which began in at the Cadarache site in France, marks a decisive step towards demonstrating the scientific and technological feasibility of generating energy using controlled thermonuclear fusion.
FAST can be regarded as a type of wind tunnel for aerodynamic testing. It will enable the testing of advanced materials, innovative techniques and operating procedures before they are used in ITER, which will be able to meet its objectives more quickly and more safely. FAST will have a significant economic impact on industry and on the development of new technologies, as indicated by a review of the European programme carried out by an international panel in and by the Agreement on the Establishment of the ITER International Fusion Energy Organisation ;.
Can it also say whether it intends to establish guidelines to support nuclear fusion as one of the options for ensuring a large-scale, sustainable, safe and practically inexhaustible source of energy that does not produce harmful or greenhouse gas emissions? Italy has played over the years a crucial role in fusion in Europe and in the wider international context. Notable is the contribution, both of the Italian research sector and industry, in the construction of ITER, which is currently the major global endeavour in the development of fusion energy.
The principal objectives of these programmes are the successful construction of ITER and laying the foundations for the next steps needed to achieve the goal of fusion energy as a viable, safe and sustainable source of energy. In this context, it is crucial to make the most efficient and effective use of the available resources and the Commission, in collaboration with the fusion stakeholders, is developing a more detailed roadmap of research activities in line with the proposed budget.

The research facilities needed to carry out these activities, including in the global context, can then be more readily identified, and FAST should be evaluated as part of this process. Gas radioattivi, nuovi metodi per la bonifica. Radioactive waste comes from past nuclear plant operations, reclamation operations and the use of radionuclides in the medical, industrial and scientific sectors. Radioactive waste is managed and made safe by treatment and conditioning. One of the greatest problems in the decommissioning and clean-up of nuclear plants and the management of radioactive waste and of spent nuclear fuel is the removal of gases produced by nuclear decay.
A recent study has helped develop a new technology based on metal-organic frameworks that can aid such clean-ups. One of these frameworks, called Zif-8, is composed of a powder that can be thickened and contains radioactive ions. This powder can be added to vitrified waste for. The Euratom Framework Programme FP for nuclear research and training activities aims at promoting research in the field of reactor systems and related safety, long-term safe management of radioactive waste and the risks from exposure to low doses of radiation.
Further research is carried out at the Commission's Joint Research Centre JRC on the management of spent fuel and nuclear high-level waste, including their processing, conditioning, transport, interim storage and geological disposal.
