The European Commission's Directorate-General for Development and Cooperation—EuropeAid was established on 3 January 2011. It is the result of the merger of parts of the former Directorate-General for Development and Relations with African, Caribbean and Pacific States with the former EuropeAid Co-operation Office. EuropeAid is now responsible not only for defining EU development policy, but also for ensuring the effective programming and implementation of aid. Within its food and natural resources program, EuropeAid works on fighting hunger, the environment, and agriculture and rural development. Promoting research and enhancing education and training are two components of its work.
