Yemen: Capital City Faces 2017 Water Crunch (March 23, 2010)
Over the past year the cost of water in Sanaa has tripled , and thousands of families are left without water over the summer months. Annual per capita water availability is 1,500 cubic meters less than the international scarcity line. Sanaa's population is growing rapidly, and the capital may - by 2017 - simply run out of water. (Irin)

My Enemy's Enemy...is Water (March 22, 2010)
The impending water crisis in the Middle East could accelerate the region's peace process because nothing reconciles old foes like a new common enemy. The Jordanian, Israeli and Palestinian government are jointly examining the possibility of bringing water 110-miles from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea to provide desalinated drinking water for Palestinians and Jordanians. However, this ambitious project is seen by many as a political move in which many of the environmental consequences - rising sea temperatures and loss of aquatic life - are being overlooked. (Global Post)

UN Cuts Kandahar Staff Over Security Concerns (March 21, 2010)
Following a security review, the UN has announced that it will be cutting its foreign staff in Kandahar (Afghanistan). Afghanistan Rights Group has expressed alarm at this decision. Kandahar - already an unstable city - will need to be prepared for the impending unrest and influx of refugees NATO's newest offensive in the region will cause. (Globe and Mail)

Years of Conflict Etched on a Congo Village Chief's Face (March 21, 2010)
The UN is currently examining how - and precisely when - the UN peacekeeping force should withdraw from Congo. The Congolese government wants MONUC out by mid 2011. MONUC have been accused of sexual abuse and of supporting war criminals in the Congolese Army force. But Amnesty International argues that the UN peacekeepers have prevented the situation from deteriorating even further. Internally displaced persons, such as Nangwahafil Makuza, fear for the violence that might follow MONUC's departure. (Guardian)

Gabon's Green Ambition for Africa (March 21, 2010)
The President of Gabon, Ali Bongo Ondimba, argues that climate change will result in twenty-three African countries entering into war in the next twenty years, and political instability in thirteen others. The President coherently draws links between environmental degradation and conflict, even arguing that UN peacekeepers may one day shed their current roles and instead "protect biodiversity and stop deforestation." (Guardian)

Liberia: What it Takes to Push Peace-building to the Next Level (March 19, 2010)
In Liberia, the transition from peacekeeping to peace-building has been a success. The economy is improving and the country is politically stable. However, to truly build peace more is needed than potable water, roads, ports, and electricity. Liberia's government and UN peace-builders must cultivate "the soft infrastructure" of training, skills, and national cooperation in getting Liberians working again. (Christian Science Monitor)

Two Accused of Taking Bribes in UN Contract Deal with US Company (March 18, 2010)
The UN anti-corruption unit has accused Alexander Yakolev, an ex-UN official, of taking bribes from Armor Holding, a US private security company. Yakolev and his partner-in-crime, Ezio Testa, entered into a corrupt agreement that steered the lucrative UN contract to Armor Holding in return for personal payouts. Testa's position within UN peacekeeping contracts is well known; he acts as a key broker between multinational corporations and UN peacekeeping forces in need of clothing, food and other supplies. (Washington Post)

UN Drops Muslim Brotherhood Figure from 'Terrorist Finance' List (March 17, 2010)
Youssef Nada, a prominent financial and diplomatic representative of an Egypt-based fundamentalist movement, has been quietly dropped from the UN sanctions list. Nada was added to the list after alleged financial ties with Al Qaeda through his companies in Switzerland, Lichtenstein and the Bahamas. Nada and his companies, however, remain on the US terrorist-finance sanctions list. This article suggests that the UN's decision to drop Nada from its sanctions list may have been prompted by a proposed mechanism under Swiss law. This mechanism would enable the Swiss government to refuse enforcement of UN sanctions against individuals in circumstances where little is proven against them. (Newsweek)

Gabon: UN Concept Paper on Tackling Illicit Arms Trading in Central Africa (March 17, 2010)
In a March 19th open-meeting of the Security Council, members of the United Nations debated the destabilizing effects illicit arms have on the Central African region. Gabon argues that illicit arms undermine the region in five areas: the flow of arms encourages mercenaries, upsets peace processes, promotes child soldier recruitment, increases the number of refugees and impedes socio-economic development. This Security Council meeting sought to strengthen regional and international frameworks to control/stem the flow of arms, but an international treaty to regulate the small arms trade is yet to exist. (United Nations Security Council)

Evidence-Based Peacekeeping: Exploring the Epidemiology of Lethal Violence in Darfur (March 2010)
This working paper analyzes the nature and scale of violence in Darfur. Through rigorous and lengthy data collection, the paper demonstrates that UNAMID - the Sudanese UN peacekeeping force - have under-reported or missed up to 15% of violent incidents. Furthermore, this paper outlines how the nature of the violence in Darfur has changed recently. Data-collection oversights impact UNAMID's potential to keep peace in the region. The authors argue that a more stringent and standardized system of collecting peacekeeping date is necessary. (Harvard Humanitarian Institute)

DRCongo: Ex-Rebels Take Over Mineral Trade Extortion Racket (March 11 , 2010)
Former CNDP rebels - who integrated with the Congolese army in 2009 - are running extortion rackets in the tin and tantalum mining areas in eastern Congo. These rackets provide the ex-rebels with the necessary resources to re-arm and resume fighting whenever they wish. Global Witness emphasizes how crucial it is that the demilitarization of mines be set as a condition for the withdrawal of UN Peacekeeping force MONUC. (Global Witness)




Social and Economic Policy

The True Cost of Cheap Food (March, 2010)
Cheap food causes poverty and hunger. This article explains the contradictory nature of food and agriculture under globalization. The demand for low food prices means many farmers are getting less money for their crops and struggle to support themselves. As farmers go out of business, long term food security is also at risk. The author blames the demand for "cheapness "for the food crisis, concluding that there are "some essential things, such as our land and the life-sustaining foods it can produce, that should not be cheapened." (Resurgence)

Impatient EU Pushes for Progress on EPA Trade Deal (March 22, 2010)
The European Union wants to conclude discussions with the East African Community (EAC) about a new Economic Partnership Agreement. The agreement would mean less stringent trade rules and lesser tariffs on EU imports than the current trade instruments, and would replace the decolonization era trade system between the EU and the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States that expired in 2007. While the EAC is worried about a loss in tariff revenues other advocates for the African region warn of unequal terms of trade and a pace of liberalization that could harm local industry. (IPS)

Agribusiness and the Food Crisis: A new thrust at anti-trust (March 22, 2010)
The world's largest agribusiness companies squeeze the agriculture system from both the supply and demand side, threatening food security. Seed prices overall have risen 146 percent in the last decade as many farmers in the US and worldwide have no choice but to buy seeds from Monsanto, the world's largest GM seed company. As well, agribusiness mergers in the last two decades have concentrated the industry's buying power in the hands of a small number of corporations, threatening farmers to "get big, or get out."(Triple Crisis)

Colonialism Lives In Biotech Seed Proposal for Africa (March 20, 2010)
Biotechnology is playing an increasing role in African agriculture. As a result, farmers are becoming more dependent on imported technology -a fact that hinders local sustainability. US companies, Monsanto and Pioneer, plan to export more biotech corn seed to Africa - claiming yields will increase to provide more food and profit for all. However, companies sell seed at a great cost to farmers and enforce strict rules to prohibit sowed seeds being used for future seasons. Moreover, the agricultural methods promoted are designed for monoculture production on large scale acreages (like in the US) and are unsuited to the small scale production methods of African farming(Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy)

Honduras: Repression Intensifies, Washington Promotes Recognition of the Post-Coup Regime (March 19, 2010)
The US embassy in Honduras recognizes that activists and journalists opposed to the June 2009 coup have been murdered, detained, tortured and raped. The US, however, continues to urge the international community to recognize the new government of President Lobo. Loans have been reestablished by the international lending institutions, and US-backed development projects are now back on track.(Centre for Research on Globalization)

Bad Water More Deadly Than War (March 18, 2010)
The executive director of the Stockholm International Water Institute says that bad water kills more people than wars or earthquakes. Some 3.6 million people are estimated to die each year from water-related diseases. A joint report by WHO and UNICEF says that while the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) for drinking water might succeed, much needs to be done to come close to the sanitation MDG target. (IPS)

The Hidden Water We Use (March, 2010)
Vast amounts of water are used to produce food, clothes and other consumer goods. As a global water crisis looms, matters of water accountability are growing more important. Individuals should be aware of their personal water usage (and wastage). The "water footprint" of an individual is defined as the total volume of freshwater that is used to produce the goods and services consumed by that individual. This interactive tool shows how much water is used, directly and indirectly, to produce different commodities- revealing unexpected "hidden water" usage.(National Geographic)

Food Rights and Wrongs (March, 2010)
One third of the world's population suffers from malnutrition. Of the hungry population, women are affected most severely - accounting for 60% of the suffering. This vulnerability is particularly ironic since women produce and manage most of the available food in developing countries. The author identifies food sovereignty as key to protecting women's right to food and addressing the inequality which weakens the current food production system. (Third World Network)





International Justice

Congo under Increased Pressure from the US to Deliver on Justice (March 2010)
The United States is not a state party to the International Criminal Court (ICC) and is known for its indifference towards the Court. The US, however, keeps raising its concerns over African nations' commitment to cooperate with the Court. A recent US outcry followed after the refusal by the Democratic Republic of Congo to arrest General Bosco Ntaganga after an ICC arrest warrant against him. While most Congolese human rights NGO's welcome the US call for justice, some believe the US needs to set the example by joining the ICC first. (Coalition for the ICC)

Why the ICC Should Prosecute Legal Persons (March 2010)
Foreign trading companies have taken substantial advantage of the armed conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo by providing weapons and munitions to armed groups in exchange of access to mineral resources. The International Criminal Court (ICC) does not have the jurisdiction to prosecute private or public legal persons for their involvement in international crimes. The Rome Statute of the ICC provides that the Court can only prosecute individuals. International crimes, however, are usually committed by individuals linked to organizations. Therefore, this paper argues that the ICC should have jurisdiction over legal persons. (Coalition for the ICC)

Patrick Robinson: 'Mladic Could Be Tried After Tribunal Closes' (March 10, 2010)
The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) is expected to complete its work no later than 2014. The Tribunal's president, Patrick Robinson, hopes that the two remaining most-wanted fugitives, Ratko Mladic and Goran Hadžic, will be arrested and brought to justice before the end of the Tribunal's mandate. If this does not happen, they will be tried under the Tribunal's "legacy mechanism". This means that responsibility for the cases will be transferred to domestic courts in the Balkans. Robinson particularly praises the Court of Bosnia-Herzegovina for its fair trials and excellent cooperation with the ICTY. (Balkan Insight)






NGOs

Egypt's Government to Restrict NGO Vote Monitoring (March 22, 2010)
The Egyptian government has recently introduced new draft legislation which requires NGOs and advocacy groups to become members of a government-controlled federation. The federation manages NGO permits, work and funding. Thirty-sex local NGOs have since launched a protest, alleging that the new legislation's underlying purpose is to prevent civil society from monitoring upcoming parliamentary and presidential elections. (Guardian)

Political Activists Call for Inquiry after Revelations about Undercover Police (March 21, 2010)
An ex-British undercover police officer recently revealed detailed accounts of his experience as a member of the Special Demonstration Squad - a secret unit which deployed full-time undercover officers in the mid 1990s to infiltrate supposedly "subversive" or "potentially violent" activist organizations seen by the police as liable to cause public disorder in London. The revelations have since sparked intense outrage among political activists, who now demand a public inquiry into police tactics at gathering intelligence and at managing public protests. (Guardian)

Civil Society is Leading the way on Societal Reform. Let It. (March 2010)
The global economic crisis has spurred discussions about the role of civil society in constructing and sustaining a resilient economy. The Carnegie Inquiry into the Future of Civil Society examined humanitarian work by the voluntary sector, and how it could be modified or improved. The inquiry discovered broad consensus on the need to significantly increase the roles of civil society organizations. It even suggested that public services such as libraries and parks should be opened up to civil society organizations, and that civil society as a whole should move beyond its current sphere of activities to a larger and broader economic role. (Guardian)

Maliki Seeks Recount in Iraq Elections (March 22, 2010)
Prime Minister Nouri Maliki, alleging fraud, invoked his military powers as Iraq's Commander-in-Chief to demand that a ballot-by-ballot recount in Iraq's parliamentary elections. Maliki, who received support from the President and Interior Minister, insisted that the credibility of the election was in danger despite statements from the US Embassy and the UN that balloting was carried out in a "credible fashion." With 95% of the votes tallied, former Prime Minister Iyad Allawi appears to be ahead by 11,000 votes nationwide, but curiously there were no international monitors to test the credibility of the elections. (Los Angeles Times)


Election Monitors' Report Increases Doubts over Fairness of Iraq Election (March 15, 2010)
Local election monitors have raised serious concerns about the fairness of the parliamentary elections held in Iraq on March 7. The Independent Report published by three Iraqi institutions, details widespread irregularities with reports of inadequate and fraudulent electoral rolls and claims that "security forces were urging people to vote for a specific list." The absence of international monitors casts an additional shadow over the election. (TimesOnline)

New Fraud Cases Point to Lapses in Iraq Projects (March 13, 2010)
The Office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, an independent US government oversight agency, has opened more than 50 new fraud cases in six months. Since 2003 there have been numerous convictions for corruption, but the new cases confirm that the "chaos, weak oversight and wide use of cash payments" in the $150 billion reconstruction program have contributed to ongoing fraud perpetrated by private contractors, military officers and civilian officials. (New York Times)

US May Expand Use of its Prison in Afghanistan (March 21, 2010)
The White House, after soliciting suggestions from the Department of Justice and the CIA, is considering a Guantanamo style expansion of the Bagram airbase prison in Afghanistan. The proposed expansion signals a retreat by the Obama Administration from its previous policy and a readiness to continue the era of abusive detainment begun by George W Bush in the name of the "War on Terror." (Los Angeles Times)


Policing Afghanistan: How Afghan Police Training Became a Train Wreck (March 21, 2010)
US private security contractors training Afghanistan's police force is "a disaster in the making", states Eckart Schiewek, a senior UN official. In some police "training" centers, Afghani civilians will be granted a badge, gun and uniform after only three-weeks training! However, three weeks appears opulent compared to the ten-day training program offered by DynCorp, a Virginia-based private security firm. International Crisis Group asserts that these ridiculously short programs actually lower literacy rates and decrease police efficacy. (TomDispatch)

World Bank Oks $1.25 Bln For Mexico Health Insurance. "The World Bank approved a $1.25 billion loan on Thursday to help expand health insurance coverage to Mexico's poor. 'The loan will support Mexico's Social Health Protection System Project promise to achieve universal medical insurance by 2012,' the World Bank said in a statement. …" [Reuters/Factiva]
 
AFP notes that "…The loan denominated in USD with a maturity of 18 years, contributes around 5% to the effort of the Mexican government to expand coverage and improve the effectiveness of 'Seguro Popular' ('People's Insurance'), the multilateral institution indicated in a statement. The Mexican government is committed to providing health coverage to its entire population by 2012, said the World Bank. …" [Agence France Presse/Factiva]
 
Meanwhile in a separate piece, AFP reports that "The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has approved a USD 48 billion successor credit line for Mexico, though it stressed it did not expect the line to be drawn on. The one-year arrangement falls under the IMF's Flexible Credit Line, a scheme established last year to throw a cash lifeline to countries hit by the global economic crisis. …
 
John Lipsky, acting chairman of the IMF's executive board, praised Mexico's 'sustained record of sound economic policies' and 'very strong economic fundamentals and frameworks.' 'On the back of these strong policy measures and improving global economic conditions, growth has resumed since mid-2009,' he said in a statement. …" Agence France Presse/Factiva]
 
EU, US Aid Groups To Pledge About $2.7 Billion For Haiti. "More than USD 2.7 billion in pledges of aid to help earthquake-wracked Haiti recover and rebuild will be made next week by the EU and a coalition of US-based humanitarian groups at a UN conference.
 
The EU is likely to commit EUR 1.3 billion (USD 1.73 billion) over three years at a planned March 31 donor meeting, said Kristalina Georgieva, EU Commissioner for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response. But she told reporters at a meeting of aid groups on Thursday that the EU wanted results for its money. …" [Reuters/Factiva]
 
AP reports that "Former President Bill Clinton is urging the aid groups serving Haiti's devastated communities to help rebuild the country's government and ultimately put themselves out of business by fostering a self-sufficient nation.
 
'Every time we spend a dollar in Haiti from now on we have to ask ourselves, Does this have a long-term return? Are we helping them become more self-sufficient? ... Are we serious about working ourselves out of a job?' Clinton said. …
 
Clinton asked the groups Thursday to allocate 10 percent of their spending in Haiti for government salaries and employee training, to help the nation's agencies rebuild their decimated staffs. He urged the aid groups to hire local staffers, consult with local authorities and structure their efforts around the Haitian government's plan, which is currently being finalized. …" [The Associated Press/Factiva]
 
Bloomberg notes that "Haiti President Rene Preval will join US and UN leaders next week in seeking USD 3.9 billion to rebuild the nation's infrastructure following the January earthquake that caused more than 200,000 deaths.
 
The UN, World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank will present a 250-page reconstruction plan at a donors' conference in New York on March 31, according to Jordan Ryan, director of the UN Development Program's crisis prevention and recovery unit. Ryan said as many as 60 nations may pledge new funds.
 
Ryan said Preval also will submit a 50-page Haitian government "Vision and Plan" for his nation's long-term economic development. …The USD 3.9 billion will cover reconstruction for about two years, Ryan said. The longer term price tag has been estimated at USD 11.5 billion. …" [Bloomberg]
 
UN: forests still disappearing "Ambitious planting programs in Asia and the United States have helped slow the global rate of deforestation but farmers are still cutting trees to clear land at an alarmingly high rate, a U.N. survey released Thursday shows. [Associated Press]
 
Globally, around 13 million hectares of forests were converted to other uses or lost through natural causes each year between 2000 and 2010, as compared to around 16 million hectares per year during the 1990s. [Sify News]
 
The net loss of forest area slowed to 5.2 million a year between 2000 and 2010. That was still an area the size of Costa Rica, but down from 8.3 million a year in the 1990s thanks largely to ambitious tree planting programmes in Asia.
 
Efforts by major offenders such as Indonesia and Brazil to reduce deforestation also helped reverse the trend. [News Center(India)]
 
"For the first time, we are able to show that the rate of deforestation has decreased globally as a result of concerted efforts taken both at local and international level," said Eduardo Rojas, assistant director general of FAO's forestry department, in a statement.
 
"New forests are being created. Either through the expansion of forests or more rapidly through the planting of trees" said Mette Loyche Wilkie, the Coordinator of the Assessment, at a press conference,
 
Planted forests now account for about 7.0 percent of global forests, said Wilkie. [Agence France Presse]
 
The Global Forest Resources Assessment is principally based on data submitted by governments. Details also include how forests are regulated and how they are used; and here, there are also some encouraging trends, according to Eduardo Rojas, assistant director-general of FAO's forestry department.
 
"Not only have countries improved their forest policies and legislation, they have also allocated forests for use by local communities and indigenous peoples and for the conservation of biological diversity and other environmental functions.," he said.
 
"However, the rate of deforestation is still very high in many countries and the area of primary forest - forests undisturbed by human activity - continues to decrease, so countries must further strengthen their efforts to better conserve and manage them." [BBC]
 
EU foreign policy chief unveils new diplomatic service. "The European Union (EU) has started to answer Henry Kissinger's famous question, "who do I call if I want to speak to Europe?" The European Union (EU) foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton Thursday presented proposal of establishing the bloc's new diplomatic service for the European Council decision. [Xinhua]
 
Ashton has been charged with developing a plan for how the newly created External Action Service (EAS) would work. The service would oversee the EU's development projects inside and outside of Europe and could grow to include up to 7,000 diplomats and civil servants once fully staffed. [Deutsche Welle]
 
Created by the EU's reforming Lisbon Treaty, Ashton's nascent diplomatic corps will have "responsibility" for preparing strategic decisions on cooperation, development and the EU's neighbourhood policy. But under the deal, while the proposals for aiding poorer nations will be prepared by the EAS and the commission, Ashton will then submit the plans "for decision by the commission."… A spokesman for EU Development Commissioner Andris Piebalgs said he was "very satisfied" with the compromise found. [Agence France Presse]
 
Her blueprint would give herself and the EAS the power to make strategic decisions about how much money developing countries should get from the EU. But the European Commission would still have significant influence, especially when it came to implementing policy… Member states had wanted EAS to bear responsibility for the development aid budget, which is currently under the control of the European Commission. The commission had wanted to retain their control. [Deutsche Welle]
 
But her proposal leaves many outstanding questions, in particular over how top officials in the EAS would be appointed, a source of concern for new member states who fear the old EU diplomatic networks will dominate the service.
 
The plan will still require approval from member states, as well as the European Parliament, which on Thursday gave it a frosty reception. [The Financial Times]
 
Op-Ed: No Safe Havens For Stolen Funds. An Op-Ed by World Bank Poverty Reduction and Economic Management Network Vice President Otaviano Canuto and by World Bank Financial and Private Sector Development Network Vice President Janamitra Devanis published in the IHT writes: "…Every year an estimated $20-$40 billion are stolen from developing countries and stashed away in the developed world. In the past 15 years, only $5 billion have been successfully returned to their countries of origin.
 
The magnitude of the problem suggests that a better approach to combat looted funds starts with preventing assets from being stolen and laundered in the first place. That would place a significant requirement on financial centers and their financial institutions. Absent prevention and early detection, there will always be safe havens for the corrupt. …
 
Laws and regulations do matter, but they are not enough if implementation and enforcement don't follow. This requires active participation from private financial institutions as well as gatekeepers, since experience demonstrates that reputational and business risks are not enough to deter the private sector from associating with the corrupt. …
 
The Financial Action Task Force, the international body that combats money laundering and the financing of terrorism, has recently agreed to strengthen its efforts against corruption. The task force recognized the proceeds of corruption as a significant risk to the international financial system. It agreed to further cooperation between financial intelligence units and law enforcement. It also decided to strengthen its tools to prevent and detect the abuse of the financial system by cronies and their associates. We strongly welcome these developments, and the World Bank Group will continue to closely work with the FATF for more effective results.
 
But much more is needed. At the World Bank Group we are working together with UN Office on Drugs and Crime on the Stolen Asset Recovery Initiative to underscore that stronger standards are not enough without adequate implementation. To be effective, the financial system needs to be vigilant, to periodically review politically exposed persons' accounts, to require the declaration of individual owners behind a company and other financial disclosures.
 
Success will depend on active cooperation between the public and the private sector, along with international organizations and civil society. Financial institutions must become a central part in efforts against theft to ensure there are no financial safe havens for stolen funds. They could begin by taking voluntary initiatives to show they are serious in ensuring that 'corrupt money stays out of my bank!'" [The International Herald Tribune/Factiva]
 
Also in this edition…Briefly Noted….US Treasury Secretary] Geithner cited efforts by the World Bank and regional development banks that have gone toward infrastructure spending in Afghanistan as a good example. …"It is now our turn to ensure the World Bank and regional development banks have adequate capital and funding to fulfill their missions of lifting the lives of the poor, promoting security, addressing climate change and other global challenges," Geithner said. [Dow Jones]
 
Developing countries could achieve sustainable growth by reviewing the economic growth models of China and India, Managing Director of the World Bank Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala said Thursday. During the South-South Cooperation Meeting held in Bogota, Colombia, Okonjo-Iweala told Xinhua that the biggest challenge faced by the Latin American countries is to create programs of social assistance and make creative efforts to reduce unemployment. [Xinhua]
 
International Monetary Fund member countries have rejected an idea supported by IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn to create a green fund to help developing nations pay for the impact of climate change. The IMF made no public acknowledgment of the rejection by the board and instead published the proposal on Thursday as a staff paper, emphasizing it did not represent the views of IMF member countries. [Reuters]
 
The UN World Food Programme has denied a claim that up to half the food aid to Somalia was being diverted to Islamist militants and corrupt contractors. WFP officials said there was no evidence to back up the claim made in a report by a UN monitoring group. [BBC News]
 
Africa is the only continent not on track to meet the U.N. millennium development goal of halving poverty by 2015 because of the impact of the global economic downturn, a U.N. agency said on Thursday. Abdoulie Janneh, executive secretary of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) said the fall in economic growth has resulted in rising poverty and unemployment in many African countries. [Reuters]
 
China Railway Group has won a $4.8bn contract to build and operate an Indonesian coal railway, the latest in a string of offshore contracts for China's state-controlled rail companies.They have been winning rail projects across the world, including in the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Latin America, Africa and Australia. [Financial Times]
 
France and Germany hammered out an agreement yesterday on the principles of a eurozone rescue mechanism for Greece, giving a big role to the International Monetary Fund while leaving the Europeans to lend most of the money. Under the terms of the accord reached between Nicolas Sarkozy, French president, and Angela Merkel, German chancellor, Athens would, in the event of "very serious difficulties", receive co-ordinated bilateral loans from its eurozone partners as well as IMF assistance. [Financial Times]
 
The World Bank approved a $1.25 billion loan on Thursday to help expand health insurance coverage to Mexico's poor. "The loan will support Mexico's Social Health Protection System Project promise to achieve universal medical insurance by 2012," the World Bank said in a statement. [Reuters]
 
A big push to develop agriculture in the poorest countries is needed if the world is to feed itself in future decades, a report warns. …"In Asia, the Green Revolution created a sense of complacency, that we had solved the problem - and that lasted until the [food price] crisis of 2007," said Uma Lele, the former senior World Bank official who co-ordinated the report. [BBC News]
 
…The 2009 Revision of World Urbanization Prospects report, launched on Thursday by the UN Population Division of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) at the UN Headquarters in New York, said that with 50.5 percent, or 3.5 billion people worldwide living in cities in 2010, the global population as a whole is becoming more urban and less rural.

Copenhagen, Denmark, 25 March 2010 - Deputy Secretary-General's
remarks to the MDG-3 Conference on Women's Empowerment and Employment
http://www.un.org/apps/dsg/dsgstats.asp?nid=210
25 March 2010

Minister Pind,

Excellencies,

Distinguished delegates,

It is a pleasure to be here with you today. Thank you for coming
together to consider recommendations for the MDG High-level Plenary
Meeting, to be held in New York in September.

I am heartened that Ambassador Staur, who is with us today and who
most ably serves as one of the two co-facilitators of the inter-
governmental preparatory process of the September meeting, has agreed
to take these recommendations to the attention of Member States back
at the United Nations in New York.

I would like to thank the Danish government for convening this
meeting, and for their creative initiative to back MDG 3 with their
Torch Campaign. I am honoured to be a torch bearer for the cause of
gender equality and women's empowerment.

September's High-Level Plenary Meeting of the General Assembly will
review progress in the achievement of all the MDGs. It aims to
galvanize stakeholders – Governments, civil society, foundations,
businesses, social and religious faith-based movements, and the UN
itself.

With only five years left until 2015, the High-Level Meeting is a
prime opportunity to recalibrate efforts, identify gaps, commit to a
concrete action agenda, and chart the course for accelerating
progress.

In the coming days, Secretary-General BAN Ki-moon will establish an
MDG Advocacy Group of eminent personalities, whose role will be to
mobilize global support in scaling up efforts to achieve the goals.

It is a practical necessity, and a moral imperative, to keep our
promise to billions of the world's poor and vulnerable people.

And it is also an important opportunity to renew commitments to gender
equality and women's empowerment.

Issues of gender equality and the empowerment of women should not be
confined to MDG 3 only, but considered across all the MDGs.

It is crucial that this is reflected in the discussions at September's
high-level meeting. Delivering on women's rights and women's
opportunities is not only just and fair, but is also vital if we are
to meet all the Millennium Development Goals.

True development hinges on significant progress towards enforcing
women's rights and eliminating the scourge of violence against women
and girls.

Increasing gender equality and women's empowerment, as a means of
accelerating growth and development, is an end in itself. It allows
individual women and girls to enjoy their full human rights, and it
leads to more stable economies and stronger societies.

That might be common knowledge in this room, but unfortunately, it is
not widely put into practice.

The UN is working to empower women in all kinds of ways. Let me tell
you about one of these, which impressed the Secretary-General on a
recent trip.

Burkina Faso in West Africa is one of those countries facing huge
economic and social challenges. In rural areas, you will witness a
common scene which is mirrored throughout much of Africa -- girls and
women grinding grain in a hollow log.

This back-breaking and time-consuming work is necessary because most
of Burkina Faso's 8,000 rural villages lack electricity.

But over the past five years, the UN has introduced a revolutionary
piece of technology to 200 of these villages.

It is called the Multi-Functional Platform, and essentially, it's a
simple engine that runs on diesel or biofuel. It can pump water, and
it grinds grain and crushes nuts and seeds in minutes, saving hours of
labour.

This machine can generate electricity, run welding equipment and
charge batteries for cell phones and computers.

It creates time ? time for girls to go to school, and for their
mothers to visit a health clinic, or to think about ways to sell their
agricultural products. Or even to take a well-deserved rest.

And it creates revenue. The women who run it – the women who own it –
get business training, earn an income and gain a new standing in the
community.

This is empowerment in action. With initiatives such as these, we can
improve the lives of hundreds of millions of people.

As this example shows, gender equality and women's empowerment are
strongly linked with development, and must be considered across all
the MDGs, not only confined to MDG 3.

When countries review the MDGs at the national level, they should seek
opportunities to include sex-disaggregated data and analysis, to allow
the full picture to emerge. They should also seek opportunities to
mainstream gender equality perspectives in their national MDG reports.

This will give them a statistical basis to introduce specific national
targets and indicators – a proven and effective way of giving greater
visibility and prominence to the gender dimensions of all the MDGs.

Excellencies,

Distinguished delegates,

Progress in achieving the MDGs has been uneven.

There have been major successes in combating extreme poverty and
hunger, improving school enrolment and child health, expanding access
to safe water, strengthening control of malaria and tuberculosis, and
providing increased access to HIV treatment.

Between 1999 and 2004, sub-Saharan Africa achieved one of the largest-
ever reductions in deaths from measles. It has also shown the fastest
growth in primary school enrolment: from 58 to 74 per cent in a
decade.

These successes have taken place in some of the least developed
countries, demonstrating that the MDGs are indeed achievable with the
right policies, adequate levels of investment, and international
support.

But without additional efforts, several of the MDGs will not be
attained in many countries.

On MDG 1: the encouraging trend in eradicating hunger since the early
1990s was reversed in 2008, largely due to higher food prices.
Children bear the brunt of this. More than one quarter of children in
developing regions are underweight for their age, stunting their
prospects for survival, growth and long-term development.

On MDG 5: Progress in improving maternal health has been very slow,
especially in sub-Saharan Africa and Southern Asia. Over half a
million women still die every year in child birth, or as a result of
complications from pregnancy or delivery.

These shortfalls are not because the MDGs are unattainable.

We are off course because of unmet commitments, inadequate resources,
and a lack of focus and accountability. These have resulted in failure
to deliver on the finance, services, technical support and
partnerships needed. These failures have been aggravated by the global
food and economic crises.

Excellencies,

Dear Friends,

Today, we know what works.

Adequate, consistent and predictable financial support is crucial. We
need to broaden and strengthen partnerships and support international
frameworks for debt relief, trade, taxation, technology and climate
change mitigation and adaptation.

Aid to developing countries in 2010 is expected to reach record
levels, after increasing by 35 per cent since 2004. But it will still
be less than the world's major aid donors promised five years ago at
the Gleneagles and Millennium + 5 summits.

Just as important as this financial support is a coherent and
predictable policy environment, both at national and international
levels.

Excellencies,

Distinguished delegates,

I have listened with great interest to today's discussions. We have
been given much food for thought, as well as some excellent policy
advice.

The Secretary-General and I are strongly committed to ensuring that
the United Nations provides every possible support to governments and
civil society in order to achieve gender equality and women's
empowerment.

The UN is establishing a new composite Gender Entity, which will
integrate our Organization's work on gender and will improve coherence
in two areas:

It will provide increased support to the General Assembly, the
Economic and Social Council, and the Commission on the Status of
Women.

And it will strengthen our capacity to provide assistance for Member
States to take action at the national level.

We want to see greater life opportunities for women and girls in
developing countries.

They must be equipped to make choices for themselves.

They should be able to look forward to fulfilling working lives.

And, they should have equal opportunities to take on leadership roles
and shape a better world for all.

I thank you each sincerely for your participation.

The conclusions of today's meeting are clearly an important
contribution to September's high-level talks in New York.

I look forward to working with all partners to accelerate action on
gender issues and to meet all of the MDGs by 2015.

Thank you.

Corporate governance rules must for PSUs
http://igovernment.in/site/corporate-governance-rules-must-psus-37224

It covers issues like composition of board of CPSEs, audit committee,
subsidiary companies, disclosures, code of conduct and ethics
Published on 03/26/2010

New Delhi: State-run firms will now have to compulsorily follow
corporate governance norms as per a government decision.

"The guidelines have now been made mandatory and are applicable to all
central public sector enterprises (CPSEs). The guidelines cover issues
like composition of board of CPSEs, audit committee, subsidiary
companies, disclosures, code of conduct and ethics," an official
statement said.

The guidelines were first introduced in June 2007 and were modified as
per the feedback received during the experimental phase.

It includes additional provisions relating to monitoring the
compliance of guidelines by the CPSEs and formation of remuneration
committee, reports IANS.

"There was a continued need to adopt and apply the good corporate
governance practices in respect of CPSEs where huge public funds are
invested in the light of recent events in the corporate world," the
statement said.

In the initial phase, a core backbone consisting of 15 PoPs have been
established with 2.5 Gbps capacity. Around 40 institutions of higher
learning and advanced research have been connected to the network and
six virtual classrooms set up.

"NKN is expected to encourage a larger section of research and
educational institutions to create intellectual property. Health,
education, grid computing, agriculture and e-Governance are the main
applications identified for implementation and delivery on NKN," the
statement said.

New Delhi: India's aviation sector would have a fully functioning
satellite based navigation system (GPS) in place next year, reports
quoting Aviation Minister Praful Patel said.

He said that once the satellite based navigation system is set up, "we
will be joining the select few countries in the world which has
satellite based navigation.

It will shorten our air routes, he added.

"We need to have shorter air routes for less emissions, more efficient
aircraft," Patel said.
He said the GPS system would be place next year and not sooner
"because our own satellite has to be launched, which will be done next
year. In the meantime, we will be running some trial runs on borrowed
satellite time, on other transponders we will be getting."

Patel said that "the GPS systems when in place would include the
Indian network — the entire footprint over India and the entire
territory, which we man because we have a lot of air space over the
Indian Ocean. So, our entire air mapping will be done on GPS by
satellite."
