Aid for Africa: is Europe getting stingy?

This week, we look at Europe's aid programmes for Africa. With more than 50% of the world's development assistance, the EU and its member states remain by far the biggest aid donors.

Christophe Robeet speaks to

  • H.E Ambassador Ajay Kumar Bramdeo, African Union Ambassador to the EU;
  • Graham Watson, British MEP, Alliance of Liberals and Democrats

Watch part 2 with Vaclav Klaus, Czech President

Programme prepared by Domitille Blanc, Juliette Lacharnay and Salima Belhadj
