Massire Project to Promote Innovative Water Solutions for Farming in Morocco

Rabat – The MAD 19.5 million ($2 million) project coordinated by French research institute CIRAD will run for four years and is funded by the UN International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).It’s purpose is to identify and reinforce small-scale innovative projects in the water management sector in rural Morocco, focusing in particular on successful small-scale farming irrigation practices. These may include drip irrigation, new solar water pump technology, and recycling waste water, as well as innovative water governance measures.The project also aims to identify any other agricultural practices with the potential to reinforce Morocco’s resilience towards water shortages, stated CIRAD in a press release. Once these innovative projects have been identified, CIRAD aims to develop and reinforce them.The Massire project will pair small scale farmers with key players in sustainable development such as irrigation companies, agricultural cooperatives, NGOs, researchers and local Moroccan start-ups, to give them access to the technologies and services needed to develop sustainable farming.Read also: Moroccan Agriculture Minister Predicts Average Cereal ProductionWater management is a key issue for Morocco as the country regularly faces droughts. In 2016, a particularly severe drought seriously impacted agricultural production and the country’s GDP dropped by 3.3%. According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), 83% of agricultural land in Morocco is not irrigated. Crop yields therefore suffer significantly from variations in rainfall and droughts.This vulnerability will only increase, as the FAO predicts a 30% drop in rainfall by 2050, making water management an urgent issue for Morocco. read more

UN mission reports calm as Sudanese President visits strifetorn Darfur region

During the visit to the capital of North Darfur, El Fasher, where the hybrid African Union-UN peacekeeping operation in the region (UNAMID) is based, the President addressed the local population at a rally. The Special Representative of the Secretary-General for the Sudan Ashraf Qazi arrived in El Fasher with Mr. Bashir, who the ICC has issued an arrest warrant against for war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in the western region of Sudan.Since the ICC made its decision, several humanitarian agencies, aiding some 4.7 million people in Darfur, have been barred from working in the region by Khartoum.“The Government of Sudan”s order suspending 16 non-governmental organizations (NGOs) will have devastating implications for the citizens of Darfur,” said a joint statement issued by six UN agencies, including UN Children”s Fund (UNICEF) and UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).“Aid operations in North Sudan, the largest humanitarian emergency in the world costing over $2 billion annually, will be irrevocably damaged,” read the statement.Meanwhile UNAMID reported that the security situation in Darfur remains relatively calm with the exception of an increase in banditry in El Geneina, West Darfur.The UNAMID force and police continue to conduct their normal activities throughout the region and over the past 24 hours the blue helmets conducted 25 confidence-building patrols, seven escort convoys, 11 night patrols covering 40 villages/IDP camps, and 87 police patrols in and around camps for internally displaced persons (IDPs). On 6 March, UNAMID Police Commissioner Micheal Fryer led a night patrol to Zam Zam IDP camp, where he met the Umda, a traditional leader. An estimated 300,000 people have died in Darfur, either through direct combat or because of disease, malnutrition or reduced life expectancy, over the past five years in Darfur, where rebels have been fighting Government forces and allied Arab militiamen, known as the Janjaweed, since 2003. 8 March 2009Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir, who was indicted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) earlier this week, visited the war-ravaged Darfur region today, accompanied by the top United Nations official for Sudan among other members of the diplomatic corps. read more

On day for midwives UN hails unsung heroes of maternal and newborn

“Midwives deliver – and not only babies,” said Babatunde Osotimehin, the Executive Director of the UN Population Fund (UNFPA). “They save lives and promote good health in societies as a whole. They are an essential workforce in an effective health-care system.”In a statement to mark the International Day of the Midwife, Dr. Osotimehin noted that more than one in three women in developing countries give birth alone, and in some of the poorest countries, as few as 13 per cent of all deliveries are assisted by a midwife or a health worker with midwifery skills.UNFPA estimates that 1,000 women die every day and 5,500 newborns die in the first week of life for lack of adequate medical care.The Executive Director urged investing in human resources to tackle the current global shortage of some 350,000 of these “unsung heroes” of maternal and newborn health. Flavia Bustreo, Assistant Director-General of Family and Community Health at the UN World Health Organization (WHO), noted in her statement that midwives are essential to the delivery of quality health services before, during and after childbirth for women and newborns. “Despite this vital role in improving maternal and newborn health, recent analyses indicate that midwives and midwifery services are unequally distributed both between and within countries,” she said. “Direct investment in midwifery education, regulation and association will create the necessary conditions for the midwifery profession to achieve its full potential.”Both UNFPA and WHO, along with its partners, will release in June the first ever State of the World’s Midwifery report, which will address some of the critical issues surrounding the profession. Also in June, they will also join thousands of midwives at the Triennial Midwives Congress in Durban, South Africa, to discuss human resources for health and the way forward. 5 May 2011United Nations officials today hailed the significant impact of midwives on the health of women and newborns, and called for greater investment to ensure their life-saving services are available to all who need them around the world. read more

Addressing the troops, the President summed up the few projects that have been implemented for the greater benefit of the security forces at all levels. He also briefed them on the national security plan which is to be implemented to cover all areas. President Maithripala Sirisena today highlighted the sensitive nature of the notion of national security and also the importance of it for the country’s forward-march. The President made the observations when he undertook his first formal visit to meet Security Force personnel serving in the East today. “It has already been taken up in the National Security Council and will be finalized shortly with the support of tri-service consultations,’ the army media unit quoted the President as saying.The President also assured the troops that the welfare facilities of the tri-service personnel will be looked after. While appreciating the troop contribution to the development of the country, the President told the gathering that the valuable support of the security forces needs to be mustered for the development of the country in the future as well.

Palestinian towns suffered 300400 million worth of damage UNDP says

Tim Rothermel, the Special Representative of the UNDP Administrator for the Programme for Assistance to the Palestinian People, said the total damage in the West Bank could range between $300 million and $400 million. The total damage to Nablus is estimated at $110 million, while the agency said Qalqilya suffered some $3.5 million worth of damage.UNDP said the Palestinian Authority’s central institutions in Ramallah suffered approximately $16 million in damages. This figure “does not include invaluable public records from various ministries, including the Ministries of Health, Education and Public Works,” Mr. Rothermel observed. The agency has earmarked $1.5 million for a recovery programme which aims not only to repair damaged buildings and equipment, but also to strengthen staff through training and policy advice. “Without an efficient and transparent Palestinian public administration, there will be no foundation for peace in the occupied Palestinian territories,” said Mr. Rothermel. “I think it is in the interest of all parties in the conflict to have an administration that is able to provide its people with basic social services, education, free trade and all the factors that an open, democratic and prosperous society depends on.”A detailed damage assessment for the entire West Bank and Gaza is being carried out by UNDP and other UN bodies, the World Bank, the European Union and the Governments of Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway and the United States. The results are expected to be made public on 15 May. Meanwhile, the UN World Food Programme (WFP) today released the preliminary results of its own assessment mission in the Middle East. Reporting on the food situation in Jenin, the agency said that 35,000 people there were in urgent need of food assistance. Around 90 per cent of all commerce with Israel has been lost due to recent closures, and a total of 4,320 people in the Jenin area are now homeless, WFP said. read more

Properties in Greece going cheap

first_imgAs Greece enters its sixth year in recession, property hunters are taking advantage of the low prices and buying up luxurious villas and family homes. And for property investors, Greece is providing them with an opportunity to enter the high-end market in Europe.“Prices have fallen by around half since 2008. You can find excellent quality vacation homes in Greece at similar prices to Spain and Turkey, where previously they could be as much as 40 per cent higher because so few were available,” Katerina Samaropoulou of Samaropoulou Associates, a Greek estate agent, tells the Financial Times. Since the outbreak of the Greek debt crisis four years ago, property values nationwide have dropped by around 32 per cent, according to the Bank of Greece. Greeks who bought vacation homes – which was a popular investment choice in the ’00s, are now being forced into selling for a number of reasons: maintenance costs have become too high, a new property tax was added to the bills; and also the increased regulation on people who rent on properties on declaring their income to the taxation department. Investors are looking at areas – specifically the islands – that have always been an attractive tourist option for foreigners. The most popular market places include: Corfu; Mykonos, Santorini and the Peloponnese. Crete and Halkidiki also featured highly. But there is some light to be shed in all this and that is if more foreigners and international investors are buying up properties, it would boost tourism activity towards Greece. Danos Athens Property Market Report from the second half of 2013 states: “The reforms in the real estate legislative context that incentivise investors, as well as the decline in residential prices, have boosted investors’ interest for the Greek market; interest coming mainly from abroad.“Chinese and Russian investors, who are looking to benefit from visa grants, have expressed their strong interest to invest in the residential real estate market of Greece, especially in Athens, Rhodes, Corfu and Crete. Moreover, there is an increase of interest coming from the UK. It seems that the demand is focusing on Cyclades and Corfu.”Four out of 10 Greeks recently told a Kapa Research poll they would willingly hand over properties to the state to fulfil future payments; one in three, unable to keep up mortgage repayments, feared their homes would be confiscated in 2014. This is because over a third of Greek households are unable to meet their tax obligations.In an article in The Guardian, property analyst Christos Bletas said that the Greeks have inherited a dark sense of humour about their plight. “The joke now doing the rounds is: if you want to punish your child, you threaten to pass on property to them,” he said. “Greeks traditionally have always regarded property as a secure investment. But now it has become a huge millstone, given that the tax burden has increased sevenfold in the past two years alone.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Un appareil à faire taire les bavards

first_imgUn appareil à faire taire les bavardsRécemment décrit dans la revue du Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), un dispositif technique simple, inventé par des ingénieurs japonais, permet de modérer la loquacité des personnes trop bavardes. L’astuce : leur rediffuser en direct les paroles qu’ils sont en train de prononcer. Deux situations horripilantes : tomber sur un bavard qui ne vous laisse pas placer un mot et entendre en résonance ses propres paroles (lors d’une communication téléphonique faisant écho, par exemple). Mettant à profit ce double constat, Kazutaka Kurihara, chercheur à l’Institut national de science industrielle et de technologie avancée, et Koji Tsukada, de l’Université Ochanomizu de Tokyo, ont mis au point le SpeechJammer (‘brouilleur de parole’), un dispositif destiné à couper le sifflet aux parleurs impénitents.À lire aussiAccidents vasculaires cérébraux : connaître et repérer leurs symptômesTrès simple, le prototype consiste en un enregistreur directionnel, tenu à la main et orientable comme un pistolet, qui capte le discours du locuteur et le rediffuse dans sa direction avec un délai – réglable – minime. Un dispositif qui a prouvé son efficacité. Néanmoins, les tests ont montré qu’il s’avérait encore plus efficace lorsqu’on fait varier, en cours de manœuvre, le délai de restitution (temps écoulé entre la parole prononcée et sa rediffusion). Il fonctionne également mieux face à une personne qui lit (à haute voix) que face à une personne qui parle spontanément.Bibliothèques publiques, réunions houleuses… : autant de lieux qui profiteraient grandement de cette surprenante invention, selon ses créateurs. “Nous devons établir et obéir à des règles de prise de parole à tour de rôle lorsque l’on parle. Il y a encore de nombreux cas où les aspects négatifs de la parole deviennent un obstacle à la résolution pacifique des conflits”, ont-ils souligné cité par le Telegraph.

We’ve got 25 out of the top 50 songs.’ All of a sudden I’m thinking, ‘That stuff we did in the studio, people are listening to that all over the world?
