World: More than 52 million people across Africa going hungry as weather extremes hit the continent [EN/AR]

Millions displaced; women, girls hit hardest; crises compounded by conflicts, poverty and inequality; $700m average climate-related losses; urgent action needed now

More than 52 million people in 18 countries across southern, eastern and central Africa are facing up to crisis levels of hunger as a result of weather extremes, compounded by poverty and conflict.

Some areas are facing a second extreme drought in four years and worse than that sparked by El Nino in 1981.

In the South, parts of Zimbabwe have had their lowest rainfall since 1981 which has helped push more than 5.5m people into extreme food insecurity. Zambia’s rich maize-growing area has been decimated and exports are now banned; 2.3m people there are food insecure. The situation is worsening including in Angola, Malawi, Mozambique, Madagascar, Namibia and Zimbabwe. There are reports of farmer suicides in South Africa.

Drought has also hit the East and Horn of Africa particularly Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia. At the same time, record-breaking temperatures in the Indian Ocean have dumped ultra-heavy rainfalls into Kenya and South Sudan, causing flash-flooding especially along major river arteries. South Sudan has declared a state of emergency with more than 900,000 people hit by floods.

In Africa extreme weather events have hit many countries already suffering from ongoing conflict. Across the continent, 7.6 million people were displaced by conflict in the first six months of 2019, and another 2.6 million by extreme weather. In the Horn, Ethiopia, Somalia, South Sudan and Sudan have simultaneously faced over 750 000 people displaced by conflict and 350 000 displaced by extreme weather.

Scientists have demonstrated how climate change is increasing the frequency or severity of many extreme weather events. Over the last decade, these 18 African countries have collectively suffered average annual losses of $700m from climate-related disasters– and this is without counting the cost of these latest crises, says Oxfam. However, there has been minimal progress globally in raising funds specifically to address loss and damage from climate change. Africa contributes less than 5% of total global emissions but is suffering some of the most severe impacts of the climate crisis.

Officials will meet at the African Ministerial Conference on the Environment (AMCEN) in Durban Nov 11-15 to discuss the future of Africa’s “environmental sustainability and prosperity”. Oxfam urges ministers to demand that industrial nations honor their promises to avoid escalating human and financial costs and to pay for damages.

“We are witnessing millions of already poor people facing extreme food insecurity and exhausting their reserves because of compounding climate shocks that hit already vulnerable communities hardest. They need help urgently. The scale of the drought devastation across southern Africa is staggering,” said Oxfam’s Southern Africa Regional Director Nellie Nyang'wa.

“In western Kenya, the crop harvest is 25% down and in parts of Somalia up to 60%. Livestock in many rural areas are emaciated and milk production is down. Cereal prices in some areas have rocketed up to five-year highs, pricing out poorer people. Nearly 7m people in the region are living just below the catastrophic hunger line,” said Oxfam’s Horn, East and Central Africa regional director Lydia Zigomo. “It is a vicious cycle where poor and marginalized communities, mostly women and girls, are more exposed to the climate crisis and less able to cope and recover from its harm.”.

Mithika Mwenda, chief executive of Oxfam’s partner PACJA, said “communities at the frontline of this climate crisis are overstretched and may be facing potential annihilation. But local people are doing everything that can to overcome the challenge. There are unprecedented levels of organization happening where governments have let local people down.”

“We’re seeing people trying to cope with shifting seasons and erratic rainfall by finding new ways to make a living off-farm. Women are coming together to pool their resources through small internal lending communities, buying food together, growing sweet potatoes instead of maize – all without outside support. Local people have the solutions but what they lack is resources, especially funding.

“Our leaders should look to support these community solutions to build up people’s resilience to climate change. For 35 years AMCEN has been a very important platform with impactful policies that have helped to create awareness of environmental sustainability. It needs to move away now from policy making to policy implementation.”

Oxfam is currently reaching more than 7 million people in ten of the hardest hit countries with food and water support, and long-term development projects to help people cope better with climate-related shocks. Oxfam plans to reach 10% of those most in need in these ten countries and is trying to raise $65m to do so.

Oxfam is calling on African ministers at the AMCEN meeting to:
• Insist rich industrialised countries decrease their CO2 emissions in line with the Paris Agreement's goal of limiting global heating to below 1.5C, and honour their commitment to mobilise $100bn a year by 2020 to fund climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts in developing countries;
• Demand governments agree to develop a new funding mechanism for “loss and damage” from climate change at the upcoming UN climate conference (COP25);
• Invest more into universal, high-quality and gender-responsive public services and strengthen tax systems in African countries to close the gap between rich and poor;
• Improve their disaster warning and management systems, and commit to re-greening and agricultural policies that target women and men small-scale farmers;
• Invest in “social accountability” projects that ensures climate finance can reach the communities that need it most, and empowering them in their own decision-making
• Engage women and girls in the planning, design and implementation of early warning systems and climate mitigation and adaptation programs
• Protect people who are forced to move so that they are able to do so in safety, dignity and on their own terms.

Oxfam’s estimate of economic damages from climate-related disasters is based on figures from EM-DAT: The Emergency Events Database: www.emdat.be. Oxfam's estimate of displacement from extreme weather events and from conflict if based on figure from IDMC : Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre: http://www.internal-displacement.org/

In 2013, CoP agreed to establish the Warsaw International Mechanism for Loss and Damage which outlines the responsibility of rich developed nations to help communities overcome the loss and damage from climate disasters. Since then, zero progress has been made in ensuring financial support for loss and damage to these communities.

Ele construiu um moinho a partir do lixo para levar energia e água para sua vila na África

Autodidata, William Kamkwamba aprendeu por conta própria como construir moinhos para gerar energia e água para a sua vila no Malawi, na África Oriental. Há quase 20 anos, o seu país sofria uma das piores secas da história, o que levou o menino William de 14 anos a colocar em prática o que lia nos livros de ciência que encontrava na biblioteca. A história contada em seu livro inspirou o filme da Netflix O menino que descobriu o vento.

“Como muitos do Malawi, meus pais são agricultores e não conseguiam produzir o suficiente para alimentar os sete filhos”, disse em palestra no último dia da conferência HSM Expo 2019, que aconteceu em São Paulo (SP). Sem dinheiro e passando fome, Kamkwamba teve que largar a escola. Mesmo assim continuou estudando por conta própria. “Eu queria encontrar uma forma de levar água para a minha vila.”

Sem compreender muito bem o inglês, o jovem associava as palavras com as ilustrações de motores e geradores representados nos livros que lia. O método se mostrou efetivo quando foi a um ferro-velho próximo à sua vila encontrar os materiais necessários para construir seu próprio moinho.

Com pedaços de metais e plástico, Kamkwamba não conseguiu colocar em prática um moinho de água como queria, mas criou um de energia. “As pessoas achavam que estava louco”, afirma. “Mas depois vinham carregar os seus celulares quando perceberam que funcionava”. A invenção foi a primeira de muitas. Em seguida, ele mudou o sistema elétrico da sua casa para evitar curtos-circuitos que pudessem causar um incêndio.

O reconhecimento ultrapassou fronteiras algum tempo depois quando o inventor foi convidado a participar da conferência TED na Tanzânia, país vizinho. Durante o evento, conheceu investidores que o ajudaram a voltar a estudar e realizar o seu sonho inicial de construir moinhos de água. “Eu construí um que produzia energia e bombeava água para os moradores da vila”, diz.

Terminada a escola e formado pela Faculdade de Dartmouth, nos Estados Unidos, Kamkwamba voltou ao seu país natal para continuar a levar energia para as vilas. Ele começou a instalar painéis solares em escolas da região, tornando possível que os estudantes tivessem acesso a computadores e projetores.

Hoje, Kamkwamba conta que quer criar um centro de inovação na sua vila para jovens desenvolverem novos projetos. “Talento é universal, mas oportunidade ainda não é”, diz. Para ele, não existe inovação "pequena". “Você é inovador quando, mesmo com desafios, consegue criar soluções que resolvam os problemas da sua comunidade.”

*****************************

Serikali ya Tanzania na Malawi zimesaini makubaliano ya ushirikiano wa kuimarisha na kuongeza biashara, mahusiano ya kijamii na miundombinu hususani ya bandari, barabara na ndege.

Makubaliano hayo yamelenga pia kuingiza sheria mpya ili kufanya mazingira wezeshi ya ufanyaji biashara baina ya mataifa hayo na kuyaingizia pato la Taifa.

Amesema hayo jijini Dar es Salaam, Waziri wa Ujenzi, Uchukuzi na Mawasiliano, Mhe. Mhandisi Isack Kamwelwe, mara baada ya kupitia makabalinao ya awali baina ya nchi hizo mbili yaliofanyika toka mwaka 1987 na kufafanua namna ambavyo Serikali ya Awamu ya Tano imejipanga kufungua nchi yetu na nchi jirani kwa miundombinu bora.

“Nchi ya Tanzania na Malawi imekuwa ikishirikiana kwa muda mrefu katika masuala ya kijamii, na kiuchukuzi na hivyo makubaliano mapya yaliyosainiwa ni kuona namna bora zaidi ambavyo tutashirikiana hasa katika masuala ya kibiashara kwa kuzingatia miundombinu yetu” amefafanua Waziri Kamwelwe.

Akielezea uboreshaji wa miundombinu yetu nchini, Waziri Mhandisi Kamwelweameeleza kuwa Serikali inaendelea na ujenzi wa barabara ya Mpemba – Isongole yenye urefu wa (km 50.3) inayounganisha nchi yetu na mpaka wa Malawi kupitia Wilaya ya Chitipa hivyo ikikamilika itasaidia sana katika masuala ya usafirishaji wa bidhaa na mizigo.

Aidha, ameongeza kuwa katika mpaka wa Kasumulu ambao pia unaunganisha nchi hizo mbili, Serikali imeshaanza ujenzi wa Kituo cha Pamoja cha Forodha (One Stop Border Post – OSBP) ambayo itasaidia katika kurahisisha biashara za Malawi na Tanzania.

Mhandisi Kamwelwe ameeleza uboreshaji wa bandari ya Dar es Salaam ikiwemokuongeza kina cha maji na gati zake kuanzia Namba 1 hadi 7 ambazo zitaiwezesha bandari hiyo kuhudumia meli kubwa zenye uwezo wa kubeba makasha 5,000 kwa wakati mmoja.

Waziri Kamwelwe asema kuwa katika kujenga mahusiano mazuri kati ya nchi hizo, Mamlaka ya Bandari ya Tanzania (TPA), ilichukua hatua ya kutembelea nchi ya Malawi na kukutana na kuzungumza na wafanyabishara kwa lengo la kuainisha maeneo ya ushirikiano na kuboresha maisha ya Tanzania na Malawi.

Amefafanua kuwa sasa TPA ipo katika hatua za usimikaji wa(Flow Meter) za kisasa katika Bandari ya Dar es Salaam, Tanga na Mtwara ili kurahisisha upakuaji wa mafuta kutoka kwenye meli.

Kwa upande wake Waziri wa Ujenzi na Uchukuzi wa Malawi Mhe. Ralph Jooma,amesema kuwa mkataba wa makubaliano waliosaini utatekelezwa kwa ufanisi na tija.

Pia Malawi itashirikiana vyema na Bandari ya Dar es Salaam kuwa bandari yawafanyabishara na hivyo kusaidia kuongeza uchumi wa mataifa yote mawili.Makubaliano ya kibishara kati ya nchi hizo yamefanywa kati ya Waziri wa Ujenzi,Uchukuzi na Mawasiliano, Mhe. Mhandisi Isack Kamwelwe na Waziri wa Ujenzi na Uchukuzi wa Malawi Mhe. Ralph Jooma.

World: Education Above All Foundation, World Bank Partner to Ensure Education for Two Million Out of School Children Around the World

WASHINGTON DC, September 20, 2019 - This week, Education Above All Foundation (EAA) and the World Bank announced a ground-breaking partnership to enrol two million out of school children from more than 40 countries by 2025. During a meeting with World Bank President David Malpass, Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Founder and Chairperson of Education Above All Foundation, stressed the importance of this framework agreement.

The agreement commits up to $250 million in funding for developing countries striving to enable access to quality primary education for all of their still out-of-school children. Unlike traditional philanthropic efforts of organizations like EAA who usually fund local non-profits directly, this innovative funding model aims to take lessons learned in the field to scale, through direct support to participating countries with implementation, evaluation, and reporting - enabling accountability and systemic change at the national level.

Out of school children (OOSC) are among the hardest to reach in each country due to the many and often compounding barriers to education including extreme poverty, distance to school, and conflict. This new agreement calls on governments to utilise funds to prioritise out of school children by ensuring their access to quality primary education through results-based financing. The agreement highlights the importance of multi-stakeholder partnerships in supporting developing nations, in providing education for all, and meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals, particularly SDG 4 (ensuring inclusive and quality education for all and promoting lifelong learning).

"The World Bank is committed to addressing the global learning crisis. The partnership with Education Above All is critically important in this effort. There are still too many out of school children around the globe. Together we will bring these children into school and help them learn and fulfil their potential. Learning for all is a foundation for building strong human capital for every country," said Jaime Saavedra, Global Director for Education at the World Bank.

"Our partnership with Qatar and Education Above All will play an especially important role in the Middle East and North Africa," said Ferid Belhaj, World Bank Vice President for the Middle East and North Africa. "As access to quality education is critical for the region to unlock the huge potential of its large youth population, whose energy and creativity could become a new source of dynamic and inclusive growth."

Through this new funding structure, EAA and The World Bank will support financing opportunities for resource mobilization, education advocacy, and poverty reduction in developing countries across three continents. Proposed targeted countries include Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Cameroon, Chad, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Haiti, India, Iran, Iraq, Kenya, Laos, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Malawi, Malaysia, Mali, Mexico, Morocco, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Paraguay, Philippines, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Sri Lanka, Syria, Tanzania, Thailand, Uganda, and Zambia.

About Education Above All (EAA) Foundation

The Education Above All (EAA) Foundation is a global education foundation established in 2012 by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser. The Foundation envisions bringing hope and real opportunity to the lives of impoverished and marginalized children, youth and women, especially in the developing world and in difficult circumstances such as conflict situations and natural disasters. It believes that education is the single most effective means of reducing poverty, generating economic growth and creating peaceful and just societies, as well as a fundamental right for all children and an essential condition to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). For more information, visit educationaboveall.orghttp://educationaboveall.org/.

About World Bank Group Work on Education

The World Bank Group is the largest financier of education in the developing world. We work on education programs in more than 80 countries and are committed to helping countries reach Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4, which calls for access to quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for all by 2030.

KEY MESSAGES

↗ International prices of wheat and maize rose in March for the third consecutive month and averaged more than 10 percent above their levels in December 2017. Prices were mainly supported by concerns over the impact of prolonged dryness in key-growing areas of the United States of America and Argentina, coupled with strong demand. International rice prices remained relatively stable.

↗ In South America, severe dry weather and strong demand underpinned the domestic prices of grains in key exporting country, Argentina, while the price of yellow maize spiked also in Brazil in March.

↗ In East Africa, in the Sudan, the strong upward surge in prices of coarse grains faltered in March but they remained at record or near-record highs, reflecting the removal of the wheat subsidies and the strong depreciation of the local currency.

↗ In Southern Africa, in Madagascar, prices of locally-produced and imported rice declined in February from the record highs reached in January with the harvesting of the minor season paddy crop and following an appreciation of the Malagasy Ariary.

KEY MESSAGES

↗ International prices of wheat and maize increased further in February, mainly supported by weather-related concerns and currency movements. Export price quotations of rice also continued to strengthen, although the increases were capped by subsiding global demand for Indica supplies.

↗ In East Africa, in the Sudan, prices of the main staples: sorghum, millet and wheat, continued to increase in February and reached record highs, underpinned by the removal of the wheat subsidies and the strong depreciation of the Sudanese Pound.

↗ In Southern Africa, in Madagascar, prices of rice hit record highs at the start of the year, as a result of tight supplies following a sharp drop in the 2017 output to a substantially below-average level and a weaker currency.

↗ In West Africa, prices of coarse grains continued to generally increase in February and reached levels above those a year earlier despite the good harvests gathered in late 2017, due to a strong demand for stock replenishment, coupled with localized production shortfalls and insecurity in some areas.

Key messages

  • International prices of wheat and maize were generally firmer in January, supported by weather-related concerns and a weaker US dollar. Export price quotations of rice also strengthened mainly buoyed by renewed Asian demand.

  • In East Africa, in the Sudan, prices of the main staples: sorghum, millet and wheat, rose sharply for the third consecutive month in January and reached record highs, underpinned by the removal of wheat subsidies and the strong depreciation of the Sudanese Pound.

  • In West Africa, prices of coarse grains were at relatively high levels in January, despite the good harvests gathered in late 2017, due to strong demand for stock replenishment and insecurity in some areas.

Key messages

↗ International prices of wheat and maize remained relatively stable in November, reflecting good supply conditions, while export quotations of rice strengthened amid increased buying interest and currency movements.

↗ In East Africa, prices of cereals in November continued to decline in most countries with the ongoing 2017 harvests and were at levels around or below those a year earlier with a few exceptions. By contrast, in the Sudan, prices surged and reached record highs in some markets, mainly underpinned by the sharp depreciation of the Sudanese Pound in the parallel market.

↗ In Central America, after the sharp increases recorded in the previous month, prices of white maize eased in November as market flows returned to normal, after disruption caused by severe rains in the previous month. Good domestic availabilities kept prices at levels below those a year earlier.

Key messages

  • The benchmark US wheat price declined in October mostly because of higher supply prospects while maize quotations firmed due to rain-induced harvest delays. International rice prices strengthened in October, mainly reflecting seasonally tight Japonica and fragrant supplies.

  • In East and West Africa, cereal prices declined in October with the 2017 ongoing or recently-started harvests. However, concerns over crop outputs and civil insecurity kept prices at high levels in some countries, particularly in Ethiopia, Nigeria and South Sudan.

  • In Central America, heavy rains in October led to unseasonal increases in maize and bean prices. They remained, however, at levels well below those a year earlier as a result of adequate domestic supplies, following the overall good outputs in 2016 and the 2017 first season harvests.

Key messages

  • International prices of wheat increased in September mostly because of weather-related concerns, while maize quotations fell further on crop harvest pressure. International rice prices remained generally firm, supported by seasonally tight availabilities of fragrant rice and strong demand for higher quality Indica supplies.

  • In East Africa, prices of cereals remained at levels above those of a year earlier in most countries, particularly in Ethiopia reflecting seasonal tightness amid concerns over the impact of the Fall Armyworm infestation on the main harvest and in South Sudan mainly due to the ongoing conflict.

  • In Asia, prices of rice in Bangladesh increased again in September and reached record highs, with seasonal patterns exacerbated by the reduced 2017 main season output and concerns over the impact of the July-August floods on the second season crop, to be harvested from November.

Malawi: UN expert demands that Christian schools overturn their Hijab ban,

 Cache   
(Mangochi) The other day I mentioned how Muslims living in Malawi (which is 87% Christian) decided to demolish  the local church after 2 girls (Children of noted radical Muslims) who attended the local Christian school decided to flaunt the school rules on dress and turned  up wearing the hijab. The school sent them home and in return the Muslims rioted demolished the church, the home of a priest,  kicked a teacher out of his home and forced the schools to be closed.


Well it appears that Ms. Maria Jose Torres, United Nations Resident Coordinator in Malawi isn't happy how a christian school which has a dress code acted when the daughters of 2 Islamic agitators were sent home for taking no notice of the school dress code and has demanded that the country sets aside Christian school dress codes for Muslims.



Funny how I've never heard the UN demand that Islamic schools do likewise regards not covering up for allah when it comes to Non-Muslims.

Drought parches southern Africa, millions faced with hunger

 Cache   

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — An estimated 45 million people are threatened with hunger by a severe drought strangling wide stretches of southern Africa.

Emergency food deliveries are planned for parts of South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe and other countries hard hit by a combination of low rainfall and high temperatures.

"We are witnessing millions of already poor people facing extreme food insecurity and exhausting their reserves because of compounding climate shocks that hit already vulnerable communities hardest. They need help urgently," said Nellie Nyang'wa, southern Africa director for the international aid agency, Oxfam.

"The scale of the drought devastation across southern Africa is staggering."

Parts of Zimbabwe have had the lowest rainfall since 1981, contributing to making more than 5.5 million at risk of extreme food insecurity, Oxfam said in a report released Thursday.

Zambia's rich maize-growing area has been hit hard and exports are now banned; 2.3 million people there are food-insecure, according to Oxfam and the Zambia Red Cross. The drought is also worsening food availability in Angola, Malawi, Mozambique, Madagascar and Namibia, Oxfam said.

Southern Africa has received normal rainfall in just one of the past five growing seasons, which particularly hits the small-scale farmers who depend on rain for their crops, the U.N. World Food Program said last week. The U.N. food agencies plan to distribute emergency food aid to 11 million people in the coming months.

Two cataclysmic cyclones hit Mozambique, Zimbabwe and other southern African countries early this year, wiping out crops of maize and other staple crops. Without normal rainfall, subsistence farmers are hard-pressed to recover from the destruction caused by the tropical storms.

Cordi IPs continue quest for autonomy

 Cache   

CITY OF TABUK, Kalinga, Nov.4 (PIA) - - Bodong holders and Indigenous People Mandatory Representatives (IPMR) gathered  in a forum  here to be  updated on the continuing struggle for self-determination  during the celebration of Indigenous Peoples (IP) Month.

 

Cordillera Bodong Administration  Officer Leonardo Bun-asa  talked about the struggle for self-determination where the ‘bodong’  played a vital role in uniting IPs fight a common cause while former  NPA commander Andres Malawis  provided historical notes on the quest for autonomy.

It can be recalled that the national government recognized the Cordillera’s aspiration  for self determination when President Corazon C. Aquino on September 13, 1986 met with representatives of the Cordillera People’s Liberation Army under then Fr. Conrado Balweg Cordillera Bodong Administration at the Mount Data Hotel  in Bauko, Mountain Province for the exchange of peace tokens to signify the cessation of hostilities. The CPLA –CBA was  break-away group of the NPA.

Representative Allen Jesse Mangaoang

In his keynote message, Congressman Allen Jesse Mangaoang told participants that his fellow Cordillera lawmakers will re-file the bill on regional autonomy with amendment on certain provisions before November 8.

 “As chairperson of the Committee on Indigenous Communities and Indigenous People in Congress, I take it as a personal responsibility and a social duty to give voice for my fellow IPs and to advance our interests towards the fulfillment of our aspirations. For these reasons, I will strive harder to fight for policies and programs that would give us the respect, recognition and acceptance as an equal partner in Philippine society,” he said.

Forum participants expressed to join push for the realization of regional autonomy by signing a commitment of support.   

Governor Ferdinand Tubban also aired his support for the realization of the dream for peaceful ‘Ilis” (communities).   He challenged officials, Bodong holders and IPMRs to do their roles in unifying IPs.
 

“We must remove the practice of helping our tribemates wage tribal war against our neighbor sub-tribes but instead help one another in rendering service. Tribal wars deprived us of our choice to progress.”
 
“We gather, we talk, we listen. But sad to say we seldom do something after”, the Governor stressed adding that we are the so-called minority but we are also the foundation of society’s growth.
 
 During the culminating program, the “Tongyab” (Sissiwa/Posik) was performed offering a carabao as sacrificial animal and wreath laying ceremonies held in honor of departed Kalinga leaders and heroes.
 
The IP Month celebration was organized by the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples, IPMRs and the provincial government. (JDP/PAB-PIA CAR, Kalinga)

COM and SPH students have traveled to Kenya, Cuba, Mali, Zanzibar, Malawi, Myanmar, Haiti, Turkey, Ethiopia, Venezuela, El Salvador, Nepal, Bangladesh, India, Guyana, Uganda, Puerto Rico and the UK, reporting a wide range of public health and development issues including child brides, human trafficking, cholera, female genital cutting, migration, refugees, cash transfers, climate change, and the aftermath of earthquakes in Haiti.
