Quo vadis?

 Cache   

This is a good question to ask anyone in SA at the moment, with so many of our economic engine diagnostics showing error codes. Clearly we have never been in such pending trouble in a profession that should by all measures have expanding opportunities rather than declining activities. In the role of recruitment consulting which is highly email and internet dependent, one gets the inevitable onslaught of negative news, analysts’ forecasts, global economy trends, and the very direct experiences of employers. Over the years it seemed to be recommended to have goals, practice focus in one’s chosen field and have blind faith in the future. The problem with blind faith is that eventually reality becomes too evident and too compelling to rely on it.

The media is taken up with constant streams of the blame game, regular excuses particularly lame and inept ones from none other than Zuma and the ANC “spokespersons” that can only leave one with the belief that they simply do not have any idea of how bad things actually are in the business of growth and wealth generation. It’s votes at all costs, irrespective of the damage being done in the process that will eventually unhinge the ANC anyway. The claim, for example, that the power crisis is apartheid’s fault is serious in that one expects not only that statements from that level would have a semblance at least of some sense, but that it must by inference reflect the opinion of the Presidency, cabinet and executive who write the speeches for him.

In 2005 my partner and I visited Megawatt Park for a meeting with the then emerging Capital Expansion Division (CED) with a view to getting involved with recruiting engineering talent for the CED. It was early days in this process but well overdue in terms of the need to get going with new capacity, but we all know by now the ANC’s lack of action on this. What stunned us at the meeting was the following. “Yes, we will need new engineering resources, but you are required to provide BLACK FEMALE ENGINEERS ONLY!!” 

You may now realise why Eskom has been judged deficient of appropriate skills and that the number of employees from 1992 to 2012 per installed GW increased by 43% but the effective installed GWs did not increase. This analysis disregards comparing any talent index that will also have changed for the worse as most of the experienced white engineering skills were retrenched or left.

I would now ask, in the so called 5 point plan being undertaken in the recovery “war room”, what is being done about this factor, or in more specific terms, is it not evident that a complex engineering asset requires the appropriate engineering skills and experience to plan, design, construct, operate and maintain to be sustainable? Eskom (and SA) will never recover without this realization.

So leaving behind the history, how can the engineering fraternity get some action going on applying this necessary attribute to the crisis we are ALL in whether we like it or not? Is it possible, and can a start initiative make an impact on this – it is a survival thing, not a nice to have? Clearly as with any recovery action, it will require radical funding and a change of attitude to fix this crisis over a long period, made more difficult with the recent news that our earlier fear has also materialized – government does now not have the funding for the well verbalised 18 project National Development Plan let alone the engineering resources to manage them. It cannot even fund Eskom. Will FDI come to the party with our present investment rating? We are potentially on the road to bankruptcy – Zimbabwe style.

If we as the profession in our voluntary capacity do not take some form of cohesive action, it would seem we are unworthy of our cause as Professional Engineers let alone our need for SA’s economic survival.

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

 Cache   
Source: Oxfam
Country: World, Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eswatini, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Somalia, South Africa, South Sudan, Sudan, United Republic of Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe

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.

UN policewoman recognized for ‘speaking up and speaking out’ on behalf of the vulnerable

 Cache   
INTERNATIONAL, 5 November 2019, Peace and Security - At the core of peacekeeping lies the notion of shared responsibility, the UN peacekeeping chief said on Tuesday, presenting this year’s award for Female Police Officer of the Year, to a woman who “has made a career of speaking up and speaking out on behalf of all vulnerable populations”.

Police Major Seynabou Diouf has worked “tirelessly with her colleagues inside and outside the Mission to empower women, improve conduct, enhance protection, strengthen performance, and thereby build sustainable peace”, Jean-Pierre Lacroix, Peace Operations chief, told the heads of UN police and police experts from 14 peacekeeping operations, gathered at the award ceremony at UN Headquarters in New York.

Major Diouf is one of over 1,400 female police officers serving under the UN flag, carrying out a complex range of tasks – from capacity-building and reform, to community-oriented policing, investigations, protection of civilians, and prevention of sexual and gender-based violence.

“That is impressive enough”, asserted Mr. Lacroix, “but they also provide the added value of gender perspectives and mainstreaming at all levels and at all phases of engagement with host-State institutions and communities”.

He cited examples in South Sudan where female officers are helping women and youth attain better living conditions within and outside camps for the internally displaced; the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) where they are helping to build capacity and accountability in internal security forces; and Mali by promoting confidence-building between citizens and the reconstituted internal defence and security forces.

“Our female officers are also operating in areas affected by the Ebola virus disease, ensuring the required level of security for relief and humanitarian operations”, he maintained.

And female officers are a key element in the sensitization and delivery of training on sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) throughout all UN Missions.

“As part of female police officers’ networks, such as the one Major Diouf leads in MONUSCO [UN Stabilization Mission in the DRC], they help prevent, counter and investigate SEA-related offences, advancing the Organization’s zero-tolerance policy”, elaborated the peacekeeping chief. He congratulated Major Diouf “for her outstanding service” to the UN Nations and Congolese people and stated that “all UN police officers in the field and at the UN Headquarters are inspired” by her example to uphold the core values of the Organization.

  • 2012: Constable Rezi Danismend, Turkey, UNMIL
  • 2011: Deputy Supt. Shahzadi Gulfam, Pakistan, UNMIT

Mr. Lacroix also thanked her family for supporting her and making sacrifices during her long deployments. “The more women we have in peacekeeping, the more effective we all will be”, he concluded.

Going the extra mile

Top UN Police Adviser, Luis Carrilho, spoke about Major Diouf’s experience, noting that in her native Senegal she became the first female police officer to be honoured as a Gardien de la Paix, which was previously reserved for male officers.

“Since early in her career, she has shown her determination to make the extra effort, go the extra mile, to achieve her goals”, he spelled out, flagging that as the team leader of an SEA task force in Goma and president of the UNPOL Women’s Network, “she has demonstrated her commitment to giving women a voice and putting an end to SEA”.

“Her efforts have helped the mission to achieve zero SEA cases in 2018, compared to 140 cases between 2016 and 2017”, he attested, calling her “an incredible force for good in our ongoing efforts to root out SEA and ensure UN personnel at all levels perform to the highest standards”.

Motivated to do more

When Major Diouf learned that she had been selected to receive the award, she said she was proud, but also “humble to be recognized for something that has become almost second nature” to her and her life’s work.

“When I was young, I wanted to be a medical doctor but there was an urgent need to help support my family”, she told those assembled. “Being a police officer in the early years of female recruitment provided recognition and a decent salary, but it also allowed me to contribute to society in ways I had never thought possible”.

With this new accolade, Major Diouf says she now feels “motivated to do more” and will continue “to promote women's rights, speak out against sexual and gender-based violence, and fight marginalization and discriminatory customary and religious practices targeted at women and girls”.

Labor Needs To Embrace Social Justice Unionism

 Cache   

Proponents of the “rank-and-file strategy” (RFS) emphasize the need to lay the foundations of a revitalized labor movement through rank-and-file workers—as opposed to union staff or leadership. As Laura Gabby notes, this idea has a long history: In the 1970s, for instance, thousands of leftists (myself included) of both working-class origin and otherwise entered the workforce to build a real working-class Left and rebuild organized labor.

Though this rank-and-file emphasis is more of an orientation than a full strategy, it is good in that it encourages people on the Left to engage as rank and filers—to enter into the working class as coworkers rather than staff. The idea is not, as Andrew Dobbyn argues, elitist; instead, it suggests fellow workers have something to teach, rather than simply being vessels for knowledge from leftists.

But the current discussion has certain important blind spots. First, the mostly white socialists discussing the RFS often fail to recognize that leftist formations composed mostly or entirely of people of color have historically been instrumental in developing and leading efforts to retool the labor movement. The direction and character of these formations has frequently differed from that of white-led formations.

Peter Shapiro presents one example in his Jacobin article, “On the Clock and Off,” drawing on his work with the League of Revolutionary Struggle. He writes about the Mexican immigrant women who emerged as rank-and-file leaders in the 1985–87 frozen food strike in Watsonville, Calif. They were not part of their union’s progressive reform caucus, the Teamsters for a Democratic Union, nor would they have been considered part of any conventional “militant minority”—which is why, Shapiro writes, “some strike supporters on the Left viewed them skeptically.” But these women established their own informal infrastructure, bound together through the solidarity of not just working together but the shared experience of racial and gender oppression, and propelled the strike to victory.

More broadly, proponents of the rank-and-file strategy must look beyond the clear, identifiable base of organic leaders and leftists and assess the forces within any workplace, including conservatives and pragmatists. As Fernando Gapasin and I write in our book, Solidarity Divided, to defeat the conservative elements, the Left must pull the center along. Advocates of a “militant minority” can be skeptical of such alliances, but this is a mistake.

William Z. Foster, a brilliant trade unionist who led the Communist Party USA, advocated a militant minority strategy but later adjusted his approach to pursue a “Left-Center Alliance,” recognizing that, even in the militant 1930s, the Left was not sufficiently powerful to act alone. Workers will not necessarily agree with the total program of a leftist, so it is unlikely that leftists will be organizing workers around an exclusively left-wing program. To the extent to which we ignore the center we cede territory to conservative forces that will build their own alliances to crush the Left.

Leftists in the labor movement must also look beyond the narrow objectives of trade unionism as we know it, centered on making gains within the workplace. In fact, the Left needs an alternative framework, a “social justice unionism,” with objectives focused on the larger working class—which includes, for instance, what Stephen Lerner and others refer to as “bargaining for the common good.” Here, the union takes issues of the larger community to the bargaining table. Unions, too, might provide active support to or establish shared agendas with other worker or progressive community organizations.

Lastly, rebuilding the labor movement requires recognition that labor, as Andrew points out, is not only trade unions. The rise of so-called alt-labor, such as worker centers and domestic worker organizations, is part of this rebuilding. Leftists play a major role in this sector, which is disproportionately workers of color. Unions can and should provide direct material assistance to this organizing; the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions, for instance, has worked to ally with informal economy workers.

A Left without a working class base is not a Left, but a collection of advocates for change. Our mission is to rebuild that base, transforming the Left and the labor movement together.

For alternate perspectives on the rank-and-file strategy, see "Want To Build the Labor Movement? Get a Job at a Union Workplace."and "90% of Workers Aren't in a Union. Labor's Future Depends on Them."

“Noul totalitarism e progresist și eco”

 Cache   

FUMIGENE DE WEEKEND (111) O treime din generaţia millennials, născuţi între 1981 - 1996, “ar vota în 2020 cu candidaţii de extremă stângă”, relevă un sondaj comandat de Fundația americană pentru memoria victimelor comunismului. Potrivit acestuia, “capitalismul a pierdut din popularitate”, fiind sprijinit de doar jumătate dintre  aceștia. 36% aprobă comunismul, iar 70% ar vota cu socialiștii STOP Probabil că respectivii habar n-au care e diferența dintre ele. "Dacă nu educăm generaţia tânără despre adevărul istoric al celor 100 de milioane de victime ucise de regimurile comuniste în ultimul secol, să nu ne surprindă disponibilitatea ei pentru ideile marxiste", declară realizatorul studiului. De altfel, peste 20% dintre milennials cred că "societatea ar fi mai bună dacă s-ar elimina ideea proprietăţii private" STOP Interesante comentariile la un interviu al Hotnews pe această temă, cu un istoric din aceeași generație: “o bună parte din mileniali sunt confuzi din cauza unui amestec de ignoranța și conformism. Ignoranța e întreținută de un sistem educațional deficitar... Avem în Romania, în USA sau în Franța, generații de analfabeți funcționali care pot silabisi, dar nu înteleg sensul și logica unei fraze (nu mai vorbim de lexic)” STOP Iar mai departe: “Obama a criticat dur...agresivitatea celor care tind să arate imediat cu degetul orice nu e "corect politic". Fostul președinte democrat s-a arătat îngrijorat de tendința de a bloca dezbaterea în campusurile universitare și de a interzice opiniile diferite (de cele progresiste)” STOP Un alt cititor concluzionează: “noul totalitarism e progresist și eco".  De genul Greta, 2035fărătutun, USR, Arafat și alții/altele. La “și alții” intră și Cioloș, care a îndrăznit să-și critice fostul subaltern pentru prestația de la Colectiv și “ascunderea” filmului în care șeful DSU, aidoma “bărbatului în alb din 10 august”, vorbește la telefon netulburat în mijlocul nebuniei STOP Atât de tare l-a supărat pe Arafat critica asta, încât a început să vorbească moldovenește, nemaiscoțându-l pe Cioloș din “dânsul”  STOP „Am văzut pe dânsul (Dacian Cioloş – n.r.) spune că un departament nu trebuie să ţină de un om şi sunt total de acord cu dânsul (...) Mai mult decât atât, dânsul comentează că un astfel de departament atunci când funcţionează doar sub comanda omului suprem are o problemă. Departamentul nu funcţionează doar sub comanda omului suprem” STOP În paranteză fie spus, Arafat a încercat o mică diversiune cu o teorie a conspirației, potrivit căreia cineva a încercat să îi ia jucăriile (elicoptere și avioane SMURD, înmatriculate militar). Dar declarația nu prea a avut ecou, fiind preluată sporadic. Asta în comparație cu marea  lovitură de presă despre “aparatele morții”, pe vremea când Arafat dădea verdicte despre vapat. “O tempora...” STOP Noul ministru de Interne a fost întâmpinat de protestatari cu cererea: “Capul lui Arafat vrem” STOP “Bătrânii sunt otrăviţi de medicamente, pentru că testările clinice se fac pe tineri. Mulţi pensionari iau câte 10-20 de  pastile pentru bolile pe care le au, ceea ce îi expune multiplelor reacţii adverse şi mai ales interacţiunilor dintre ele”, consideră Serviciului Naţional pentru Sănătate din Anglia. “Studii anterioare au scos în evidenţă că o persoană din 15 se află în spital din cauza reacţiilor adverse ale medicamentelor prescrise” STOP Dacă ar fi să jucăm Monopoly...Pe hârtie stăm bine, pe teren e jale. “La nivel de proiectare, suntem campioni, dar în ceea ce priveşte km de autostradă, 828, suntem pe locul 128 în lume, după Zimbabwe şi Gabon” STOP “Prima regulă a pieței unice din Uniunea Europeană este să ai o autostrada către Germania”, a transmis autorităților române un economist-șef al Băncii Mondiale, coordonator al politicii economice pentru statele UE. O autostradă catre Germania nu avem, dar avem un Președinte. Se pune? STOP Și totuși, “România alături de Germania”. Potrivit Eurostat, aproape două treimi dintre orașele europene cu cei mai puțini tineri se află în  cele două țări STOP “Industria sănătății”, ca și “industria morții”, tot industrie se cheamă că este, vulnerabilă la procese în masă declanșate de avocați orientați financiar. Nu doar “big tobacco”, dar și “big farma” plătește înțelegeri (settlements) ca să fie lăsată în pace. “Cinci producători şi distribuitori de medicamente oferă 50 de miliarde de dolari în numerar, servicii și medicamente, pentru închiderea investigaţiilor în care industria farmaceutică este acuzată că a provocat criza opioidelor din SUA”. În instanțe sunt 2.600 de procese, arată Cursdeguvernare STOP Procesomania, faza pe budă. După ce fosta șefă a ASSMB, o anume Coțofană, a afirmat că „în mandatul doamnei Firea, s-au plătit WC-uri de 230 de lei cu 3.500 de lei plus TVA”, Primărița a declarat că nu se lasă și merge cu ea “de gât, la cremenal”, adică îi face plângere la DNA STOP Guardian scrie că Guvernul chinez a lansat un Cod de conduită menit să „amplifice atitudinea pozitivă a cetăţenilor faţă de partid şi ţară şi să creeze un simţ al identităţii colective”. Documentul, emis de CC al PCC, este “un instrument nou de propagandă și de consolidare a cultului personalității, centrat pe liderul Xi Jinping și are rolul de a-i crește legitimitatea într-o perioadă în care Beijingul se confruntă cu provocări serioase - protestele din Hong Kong, încetinirea economiei și războiul comercial cu SUA. Cetățenii sunt îndemnați să trateze gândirea Xi Jinping ca fiind nucleul busolei lor morale civice, fiind omise multe referințe la alți lideri din istoria țării, precum Mao”. Aviz simpatizanților americani ai comunismului! STOP “Facebook a acceptat să plătească o amendă de 500.000 de lire sterline pentru încălcarea legislaţiei privind protecţia datelor, în cazul Cambridge Analytica”, a anunţat autoritatea britanică de reglementare. Aceasta pentru că “date despre cel puţin un milion de utilizatori britanici s-au aflat printre informaţiile strânse de Cambridge Analytica şi folosite în scopuri politice” STOP CA a fost angajată de Trump pentru campania din 2016 și ar fi fost “implicată în peste 200 de campanii electorale, inclusiv în Nigeria, Kenya, Cehia, India şi Argentina”, lucrând împreună cu “companii specializate în strângerea de informaţii”. La momentul scandalului, Cambridge Analytica România era condusă de ginerele Ministrului de externe (în prezent Președinte al Senatului), având sediul chiar la domiciliul acestuia. Peter Imre a lucrat cândva pentru o mare companie americană de tutun STOP “Camera Reprezentanţilor SUA a recunoscut în mod oficial genocidul armean, într-un vot simbolic fără precedent...o majoritate zdrobitoare de 405 din 435 de voturi, într-o rară unitate între democraţi şi republicani”. Ministerul turc de Externe a ”condamnat ferm” acest act politic și l-a convocat pe ambasadorul american. La rândul lor, bulgarii au convocat-o la Externe pe ambasadoarea Franței, după declarațiile ofensatoare ale lui Macron, care îi preferă bulgarilor pe cei din Coasta de Fildeș. Numai oficialii noștri au stat în poziția ghiocel cănd ambasadorii SUA ne-a dat lecții și indicații STOP “Orban de la Budapesta l-a felicitat pe Orban de la București. Presa maghiară face glume cu Ardealul”. Iar unii au postat pe FB: “să vezi de acum încolo ce de Hello Budapest!” STOP Înainte de predarea mandatului, fostul ministru al Agriculturii a avut parte de o aniversare unică. “PSD-iștii din Arad i-au făcut cadou lui Petre Daea, de ziua lui, un tort în formă de oaie”. Oaia aia e a lui STOP Contrabanda cu țigări a ajuns la un minim istoric apropiat de nivelul european: 10,5%. Evident, lobiștii antitutun, pregătiți să împingă tare proiectul de vânzare a țigărilor pe sub tejghea, au sărit de fund în sus că ar fi manipulare, de genul celei pe care o practică ei când clamează așa-zisele “pierderi cauzate de tutun: 4,2% din PIB”. Râd și curcile STOP Țigări de contrabandă în magazine, la Ploiești. Șase magazine au fost descoperite practicând acest “sport” bănos, alegându-se cu marfa confiscată și amenzi. Poliția nu i-a crezut pe împricinații care s-au declarat simpli vizionari, care anticipează legea Emanuel Ungureanu/Ramona Brad STOP BAT a ajuns pe locul 27 în topul exportatorilor. În același timp, a extins campania cu scrumiere stradale din Sectorul 3 București, dăruind 200 de bucăți Primăriei Iași. Pe pariu că, iar, fac activiștii scandal? Deocamdată, fac doar bube roșii și nu pot dormi pentru că, la Parament, se lanseză “Coaliția pentru libertatea comerțului și a comunicării” STOP A căzut ultima redută: “fumătorii din Austria nu-şi mai pot aprinde o ţigară în cafenele şi restaurante”, relatează AFP. Să vedem cât va afecta interdicția locul Vienei în topul celor mai bune orașe în care merită să trăiești STOP Deși cocktailurile de medicamente fac ravagii, “specialiștii în sănătate publică” au alt azimut: țigările electronice. Pentru că SUA nu se grăbește cu interdicțiile, dat fiind că majoritatea cazurilor semnalate sunt de la extract ilegal de canabis, “experții lu’ Bloomberg” s-au orientat către alte meleaguri, mai înfometate. După Brazilia, Thailanda şi India, “China a decretat închiderea temporară a magazinelor specializate în vânzarea de ţigări electronice, până când efectele acestora asupra stării de sănătate vor fi lămurite” STOP “Aprozăreasa candidează la Primaria Cluj”. Aurelia Cristea, mama legii antifumat de acum trei ani, vrea să îi ia fața lui Boc. Dar, Clujul e un oraș orientat, cu nas politic fin și buzunare larg deschise către investitori. Ca dovadă, “eșecul electoral” al lui Barna. Evenimentul Zilei relatează că, la adunarea simpatizanţilor acestuia, s-ar fi ocupat doar jumătate dintr-o sală de Cinema. A se compara cu prezența la filmele de dans de la TIFF, sponsorizate de JTI STOP Viorica Dăncilă între sabie și macetă. După ce candidata PSD a primit în dar o sabie de Samurai, ca să “taie ce trebuie”, simpatizanții ei, care împărțeau pliante la Brăila, au fost fugăriți de un bărbat înarmat cu o macetă STOP Istoria romanțată e, uneori, pasională. “John F. Kennedy a fost refuzat de actriţa Sophia Loren, dar vedete precum Audrey Hepburn şi Angie Dickinson au avut relaţii intime cu preşedintele american”, relatează Daily Mail. La noi, istoria rescrisă în funcție de “politicile corecte cacofonice” e năucitoare, scrie Marius Oprea despre Hodor și așa-zișii istorici de la CNSAS, influențați în impietarea lor de ideologii “Fenomenului Pitești”, adică de torționari și securiști STOP Dna Ludwig, noul Comisarul german pe droguri (echivalentul ANA, de la noi), a declarat mai întâi că dorește interzicerea reclamelor la țigari clasice și electronice pe panourile publicitare (că astfel s-ar putea vedea sau nu s-ar mai putea vedea ce face sau ar trebui să facă ea), după care a revenit “la castravete”: 19% dintre adolescenți au recunoscut că folosesc canabis, procent care urcă vertiginos la grupa de vârsta 18-25 de ani: 42,5% STOP Heroina și opioidele (produse farma) reprezintă, însă, principala cauză de deces asociat consumului de droguri, cu 1275 cazuri anual. Ludwig a concluzionat că oamenii trebuie ajutați sa scape de dependențe, iar “dezbaterile bazate pe ideologie” trebuie înlocuite cu dialogul STOP Socialiștii din PE dau pe dinafară de “corectitudine politică”. Nu l-au vrut pe albul hetero Sigfrid Mureșan Comisar european, pentru că nu era nici măcar femeie. Noroc că Adina Vălean e ok și nu ne va face de râs,  deși e straight STOP Cancerul corectitudinii politice ucide conștiințe și talente. Regizorul Andrei Șerban a declarat la TVR că a demisionat de la Universitatea Columbia când i s-a cerut să angajeze un nou profesor, "de preferință o femeie de culoare, care dacă este gay e foarte bine", și nu a fost de acord ca rolul Julietei să fie jucat de un transsexual STOP "În epoca Trump, dreapta e foarte radicală, stânga e foarte radicală...Universitățile în America sunt de obicei de stânga...” iar “Columbia e un fel de socialism care merge spre comunism, e o nouă formă de comunism", a spus  regizorul (HEXAVALENT)

FUNDING RECEIVED $17.98B

UN-COORDINATED APPEALS $11.97B

OTHER FUNDING $6.01B

Global Appeal Status

  • At the end of October 2018, 21 Humanitarian Response Plans (HRP) and the Syria Regional Response Plan (3RP) require US$25.20 billion to assist 97.9 million people in urgent need of humanitarian support. The plans are funded at $11.97 billion; this amounts to 47.5 per cent of financial requirements for 2018. Requirements are lower than in September 2018 due to revision of the Ethiopia Humanitarian and Disaster Resilience Plan (HDRP). For the remainder of 2018, humanitarian organizations require another $13.23 billion to meet the needs outlined in these plans.

  • Global requirements are $1.10 billion higher than at this time last year. Overall coverage and the dollar amount were only marginally higher in late October than at the same time in 2017.

  • On 8 October the Government of Ethiopia and humanitarian partners issued a Mid-Year Review of the HDRP. The revised plan reflects changes in the humanitarian context, and requires $1.49 billion for 2018, as opposed to the March 2018 requirement of $1.6 billion to reach some 7.88 million people in need of food or cash relief assistance and 8.49 million people with non-food assistance in the course of the year. Despite the general good performance of this year’s belg (spring) rains, the number of people targeted for relief food and cash support remains largely unchanged due to the significant spike in internal displacement since April 2018.

Security Council Briefings and High Level Missions

  • At a briefing to the Security Council on 23 October, Under-Secretary-General/Emergency Relief Coordinator (USG/ERC) Mark Lowcock called on all stakeholders to do everything possible to avert catastrophe in Yemen. In a follow up note on the humanitarian situation in Yemen of 30 October, the USG/ERC thanked the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, United States, Kuwait, the United Kingdom and all donors for the record amount raised for the humanitarian appeal in 2018 which had meant nearly 8 million people had received assistance across the country; more than 7 million people had received food and more than 420,000 children been treated for malnutrition; clean water, sanitation and basic hygiene support is now available to 7.4 million people and about 8 million men, women, girls and boys had benefited from health services.

  • At a Security Council briefing on the humanitarian situation in Syria on 29 October, the USG/ERC urged the Security Council and key Member States to ensure that the ceasefire holds in Syria's northwestern province of Idlib to prevent a military onslaught and overwhelming humanitarian suffering. He thanked donors for the $1.7 billion contributed so far towards the HRP for Syria, but pointed out that this HRP is currently funded at less than 50 per cent.

  • In her statement to the Security Council on 30 October, Assistant Under-Secretary-General/Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator (ASG/DERC)
    Ursulla Mueller spoke of the steady decline in humanitarian funding for the Ukraine over the years and mentioned that the HRP for 2018 is funded at only 32 per cent. This is simply not enough to cover food, health care, water, sanitation and other life-saving assistance. ASG/DERC Mueller appealed to donors to increase their support for consolidating gains in anticipation of the fast-approaching winter.

  • During a joint mission to Chad and Nigeria (5-7 October) with UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner, as part of a series of country visits the two will make to advance humanitarian-development collaboration, the USG/ERC called on donors to fulfil pledges and announcements of over $2 million made in Berlin last month at the High Level Conference on the Lake Chad Region (3-4 September). He noted the importance of maintaining humanitarian response in the region as needs were still very high.

  • Following her visit to the Republic of the Philippines from 9 to 11 October, ASG/DERC Mueller announced that OCHA would continue advocating for sustained funding to address humanitarian needs of people displaced by the Marawi conflict while ensuring that support for the transition to longerterm and sustainable recovery is forthcoming.

Upcoming Event

  • The Global Humanitarian Overview 2019 and World Humanitarian Data and Trends will be launched in the course of joint event to take place in the Palais des Nations, Geneva, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on 4 December 2018.

Pooled Funds

  • Between January and the end of October 2018, country-based pooled funds (CBPFs) have received a total of $708 million in contributions from 32 donors (including contributions through the UN Foundation). During the same period, a total of $616 million from the 18 operational funds was allocated towards 1,071 projects with 575 implementing partners. Nearly 40 per cent ($246 million) of the funds were allocated to international NGOs and some 26 per cent (approximately $160 million) to national NGOs. UN agencies received 32 per cent ($202 million) of the allocated funds and Red Cross/Red Crescent organizations received over 1 per cent (some $8 million) of all allocated funds. The largest allocations per sector went to health; food security; water, sanitation and hygiene; nutrition; emergency shelter and NFIs.

  • Between 1 January and 31 October 2018, the Emergency Relief Coordinator approved $477 million in grants from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) to support life-saving activities in 45 countries. This includes $297.7 million from the Rapid Response Window and $179.7 million from the Underfunded Emergencies (UFE) Window. A total of $31.6 million in Rapid Response grants was approved in October in response to cholera outbreaks in Zimbabwe, Niger and Nigeria; flooding in Laos; and the population influx from Venezuela to Brazil, Ecuador and Peru; as well as to support Government relief efforts following the earthquake and tsunami in Central Sulawesi, Indonesia. The UFE 2018 second round was completed this month, with $30.6 million approved in September and the remaining $49.4 million of the round’s $80 million released in October to assist people caught up in nine chronic emergencies in Angola, Bangladesh, Burundi, Central African Republic, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Libya,
    Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Sudan.

Country Updates

  • Funding for humanitarian activities in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) is at an all-time low. Nearly all agencies requesting financial support through the HRP have received less funding in 2018 than in previous years. This leaves humanitarian partners ill-placed to meet emerging needs or respond to the deterioration of the humanitarian situation in Gaza, where the rise in casualties during the recent demonstrations has stretched Gaza’s overburdened health system.
    Humanitarian agencies appealed in August for $43.8 million to respond to the Gaza crisis, particularly trauma management and emergency health care, in 2018. On 22 September, the Humanitarian Coordinator for the oPt launched an $8.3 million allocation from the oPt Humanitarian Fund to implement critical HRP projects, mainly in Gaza. Stocks of medical supplies are in extremely short supply and depleted to almost half of requirements. Since late October, the Gaza power plant has been providing up to eleven hours of electricity a day. However, around 250 health,
    WASH and essential solid waste facilities continue to rely on UN-procured emergency fuel for running back-up generators. This year’s intensive operations have depleted funds and stocks and the $1 million allocated by the oPt Humanitarian Fund for fuel supplies will only last until the end of November. Further and urgent financial support is therefore required.

  • Conditions in Yemen continued to deteriorate in October, pushing the country to the brink of famine. On 23 October, the USG/ERC warned the Security Council that without urgent action, up to 14 million people – half the population – could face pre-famine conditions in the coming months.
    Assessments are currently under way, with initial results expected in mid-November. The economic crisis is raising the risk of famine. The Yemeni rial has depreciated by nearly 50 per cent over the last year. Commodity prices have soared, as Yemen imports 90 per cent of staple food and nearly all fuel and medicine.

Urgent steps are required to avert immediate catastrophe. First, a cessation of hostilities is needed; this is especially critical in populated areas.
Second, imports of food, fuel and other essentials must be able to enter Yemen without impediment. Roads must remain open so these goods can reach communities across the country. Third, the Yemeni economy must be supported, including by injecting foreign exchange, expediting credit for imports and paying salaries and pensions. Fourth, international funding must increase now to allow humanitarians to meet growing needs for assistance. Finally, all parties must engage with the UN Special Envoy to end the conflict. Yemen remains the largest humanitarian operation in the world, with more than 200 partners working through the Yemen HRP.

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.


          

Landmines continue to kill people in Zimbabwe

 Cache   

A cattle-herder since the age of 12, Simango’s duty is to make sure that his employer’s large herd of cattle does not succumb to malnourishment; a very difficult job in this arid area, in which the harsh realities of climate change have unfolded before his eyes with the coming of each new dry season.

For him, this means travelling long distances and wandering around vast tracts of land in search of both pasture and water for the animals. As he does this, he is dancing with death. The areas are heavily infested with deadly anti-personnel land mines, a legacy of a brutal decolonisation war that ended 40 years ago.

“Many people have lost life and limb after stepping on landmines in this area”, says Simango. “I have lost many cattle since I started working as a cattle herder in ...

6 Senjata Buatan Indonesia yang Mendunia | Banyak Dibeli Luar Negeri!

 Cache   
Sejarah PT. Pindad menjadi perusahaan manufaktur alat utama sistem pertahanan negara (alutsista) berawal di Surabaya pada tahun 1808.

Serangkaian peristiwa perang membuat pabrik ini harus berpindah dari satu tempat ke tempat lain, dengan kepemilikan yang berbeda-beda seiring proses peperangan.

Pada 1923 berpindah ke Bandung dengan nama Artilerie Inrichtingen. Singkat cerita, pada 1958 akhirnya Pabrik Alat Peralatan Angkatan Darat terbentuk di bawah naungan negara Indonesia.

PT. Pindad di era modern ini ternyata sudah memproduksi banyak peranti perang yang mendunia dan banyak dibeli mancanegara. Berikut di antaranya.

1. G2 Elite 9mm


G2 Elite 9mm adalah pistol buatan PT. Pindad yang sudah digunakan cukup luas di daerah Timur Tengah dan India.

Pada 1 Juni 2018, PT. Pindad mengumumkan kerjasama dengan Bhukhanvala Industries untuk mengimpor G2 Elite 9mm ke jajaran aparatur negara India.

Pistol G2 Elite 9mm beroperasi secara semi-otomatis, menggunakan mekanisme barrel John Moses Browning. Kapasitas magazine-nya mencapai 15, dengan jenis peluru 9x19mm parabellum.

2. SPR-2 Kal. 12.7mm


Senapan penembak runduk ini memiliki laras panjang dengan bipod, dioperasikan dengan cara merunduk untuk ketabilan menembak terbaik.

Pada esensinya, SPR-2 bukanlah senapan penembak yang menargetkan manusia, melainkan objek militer seperti tank atau mobil baja.

Karena itu, SPR-2 tergolong ke anti-material rifle yang bisa menembus bermacam objek fisik, bahkan besi baja sekalipun.

Alasannya tidak lain karena kaliber peluru 12.7mm yang besar. Magazine SPR-2 hanya memuat 5 buah peluru kaliber 12.7mm.

Senjata buatan Indonesia satu ini sudah mendapat pengakuan dunia internasional, bahkan disandingkan dengan senjata buatan luar negeri lainnya.

3. SS2-V4 Kal. 5.56mm


Berikutnya ada senapan serbu SS2-V4 yang pernah memenangkan kompetisi menembak Australian Army Skill at Arms Meeting (AASAM) dan ASEAN Armies Rifle Meet (AARM) sebanyak 11 kali.

Memiliki flash suppressor yang mirip dengan senapan M16A2, SS2-V4 mampu memberi presisi tembakan yang baik dengan bantuan attachment ACOG scope di atasnya.

Magazine-nya dapat memuat 30 peluru 5.56 x 46mm. Jarak efektifnya mencapai 500m dengan firing rate hingga 700 peluru per menit!

Senjata satu ini sangat laku dibeli negara-negara Afrika seperti Zimbabwe, Mozambik, dan Nigeria. Thailand dan Singapura juga dikabarkan sering memesan SS2-V4.

4. SSX 7.62mm


Senapan serbu ini secara desain terinspirasi dari FN SCAR asal Belgia dan Heckler Koch HK417 asal Jerman.

Dengan tampilan yang modern, kamu akan familiar banget sama desain SSX seperti senjata-senjata di game Call of Duty Modern Warfare series, geng.

SSX memiliki jarak tembak efektif hingga 800m, mengalahkan AK-47, senjata legenda buatan rusia, yang cuma di kisaran 300m

SSX fleksibel buat jadi senapan serbu maupun penembak jitu, dengan barrel yang bisa diperpanjang untuk coverage yang lebih jauh.

5. SSBA 5.56mm Senapan Serbu Bawah Air


Dari namanya, senjata ini sepertinya dikhususkan buat pasukan amfibi untuk penggunaan bawah air.

Pindad SSBA dikembangkan dengan kolaborasi Dislitbang TNI Angkatan Laut, yang menghasilkan sebuah senapan amfibi yang terinspirasi dari APS Rifle asal Rusia.

SSBA memiliki peluru 5.56mm dengan ujung runcing sepanjang 12cm yang didesain untuk bisa berakselerasi dengan baik di bawah air.

6. Panser Anoa


Produk PT. Pindad yang nggak kalah populernya adalah Panser Anoa, dengan 7 jenis yang berbeda berdasarkan penggunaan.

Kendaraan 6 x 6 ini bisa digunakan untuk peperangan, pengiriman logistik, amfibi, bahkan transportasi ambulans.

Panser Anoa sudah diekspor ke beberapa negara seperti Oman dan Malaysia. Ketangguhannya dioperasikan pada berbagai medan tidak diragukan lagi berkat mesin Renault 600HP.

Event Update For 2019-11-05

 Cache   






The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

2019-11-05 - Unknown rotten egg odor hits school and sends 13 students to hospitals in Shreveport (Louisiana):
http://www.ksla.com/2019/11/05/possible-gas-leak-reported-shreveport-school/
http://www.ksla.com/video/2019/11/05/medical-emergency-sends-or-more-students-hospital-authorities-evacuate-school/
http://www.ksla.com/video/2019/11/06/no-classes-nov-broadmoor-middle-authorities-seek-source-medical-emergency/

Quote: "Broadmoor Middle Laboratory School will be closed as a precaution Wednesday as authorities search for the cause of a mystery medical emergency that sent at least 13 students to hospitals. Medical emergency sends 13 or more students to hospital; authorities evacuate school What initially was reported as a possible natural gas leak spurred a large emergency response Tuesday afternoon and caused officials to evacuate the campus on Atlantic Avenue. At least 13 students have since been taken to area hospitals. Two students came out of a class feeling dizzy and complained of headaches, Caddo School District spokeswoman Mary Nash-Wood told KSLA News 12. Eleven more other students and three school staffers had similar symptoms, she added."

Quote: "Shreveport firefighters and CenterPoint Energy crews checked the campus for a gas leak and found none."

Note: So it smelled LIKE the odorant added to natural gas but it wasn't natural gas. That's what hydrogen sulfide smells like, all of those symptoms match those of low-level hydrogen sulfide poisoning, and they didn't find any natural gas. People will often mistake the smell of low concentrations of hydrogen sulfide for a gas leak, since the smell is the same, but hydrogen sulfide will not register on natural gas detectors...

Quote: "The Grand Forks Fire Department says they were not able to find a leak at the school and didn't find a presence of natural gas in the air."

Quote: "Strandell said he and other staff members believe the smell may have been sewer gas."

Note: Sewer gas is the common name for hydrogen sulfide. They thought it was a natural gas leak, but it wasn't. Like I was just saying...

http://www.yahoo.com/news/scientists-foresee-untold-suffering-another-climate-record-falls-192240500.html

Quote: "The climate crisis has arrived and is accelerating faster than most scientists expected (figure 2, IPCC 2018). It is more severe than anticipated, threatening natural ecosystems and the fate of humanity (IPCC 2019). Especially worrisome are potential irreversible climate tipping points and nature's reinforcing feedbacks (atmospheric, marine, and terrestrial) that could lead to a catastrophic “hothouse Earth,” well beyond the control of humans (Steffen et al. 2018). These climate chain reactions could cause significant disruptions to ecosystems, society, and economies, potentially making large areas of Earth uninhabitable."

"Cash strapped" Palestinian Authority has given $1 million to Harvard U

 Cache   
In September, the Clarion Project released an incredible report showing a minimum of how much various dictatorships and repressive regimes have been donating to American universities.

Dominating the field is Qatar, which has given an astonishing $1.5 billion to some 28 universities.


Other huge amounts were given by China, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

These gifts aren't because these foreign countries love American universities. These are attempts to influence what the university teaches, and with that to influence the next generation of American leaders.

Even the Palestinian Authority, supposedly with no money to pay its own bills, manages to give a million dollars to Harvard University, in 2017.

In case you are wondering, many other countries do this as well. Israel gave some $53 million since 2012. The largest amount was to Johns Hopkins University, and the next two are USC and UCLA.

Every country from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe gives money to US universities. The largest single gift I saw was $750 million from Bermuda to Carnegie Mellon University, which might be a typo. A handful of countries gave gifts to individual universities of over $100 million, besides Qatar - India to University of Phoenix, Hong Kong and England to Harvard, France to Duke.

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.
