Panel: Power Africa: Partnerships as a Source of Power
White House Summit on Global Development - July 20, 2016 Two out of three people in sub-Saharan Africa do not have access to electricity, severely limiting access to quality health care, education, and economic opportunities for more than 600 million people. To help overcome this challenge, President Obama launched Power Africa in 2013 to double access to energy in sub-Saharan Africa. The United States' initial $7 billion commitment has leveraged nearly $43 billion in commitments from the public and private sectors, including more than $31 billion in commitments from private sector partners. With Power Africa support, transactions are expected to generate more than 4,600 MW have reached financial closure, putting us on course to increasing access to energy by 30,000 megawatts and add 60 million new electrical connections by 2030.

Joaquim Chissano Discusses the Development of Agriculture and Agroindustry in Mozambique
Joaquim Alberto Chissano, former President of the Republic of Mozambique, shares his vision for the development of agriculture and agroindustry in the country. "My vision is that we need to provide more training to people, in order to be able to make use of more sustainable ways of doing agriculture. Also, the Government, and all those who can work with it, whether technically or financially, should create the infrastructure and bring in the necessary equipment, so that there's less of a need to develop new areas for agriculture, but improve existing areas instead. In other words, being able to produce more crops in a small space - either cash crops or food crops. This can be achieved through training, or with the necessary equipment and technology", says Joaquim Chissano. "Training comes first, not just in terms of how you till the land (i.e. zero tilling, organic fertilisers, etc.), but also in terms of management, which allows people to become richer from what they do and then enables them to go from subsistence farming to commercial farming, while also introducing the processing element, as the only way one can increase one's revenue in agriculture. It's vital to add value to your products, through processing, together with creating a good market. The goal, therefore, is to improve the capacity of both small and medium-scale farmers to achieve it, thus becoming a cornerstone for development, as per the wishes of the Government’s programme: reclaiming agriculture and turning it into a foundation for development. All of these things must come together", he adds. "It's not easy to train engineers in agronomy and then have them come out and wait to be employed by the State. This is not enough. The State should certainly employ a few of them, in order to train those who are on the field, i.e. both small and medium-scale farmers, or even some large-scale farmers who may not be doing things correctly. I'm not mentioning bigger farmers, because I'm assuming that when they become big, they know what to do, in order to attain higher revenue or profit", he concludes.

How Big Oil Conquered the World
TRANSCRIPT AND SOURCES: https://www.corbettreport.com/?p=16888 From farm to pharmaceutical, diesel truck to dinner plate, pipeline to plastic product, it is impossible to think of an area of our modern-day lives that is not affected by the oil industry. The story of oil is the story of the modern world. And this is the story of those who helped shape that world, and how the oil-igarchy they created is on the verge of monopolizing life itself.

On the Trail of Fairtrade Cotton, 2013
Come with us on a journey to the heart of Senegal’s cotton country. Cotton is the main cash crop for the locals here and a vital source of income. As we drive by, women are hand-picking cotton on small, non-irrigated family plots. Follow along from the capital, Dakar, as we head 650 kilometres to Senegal’s cotton basin, a poor region cut off from the rest of the world. From humble beginnings, many farmers are now Fairtrade certified… and reaping the benefits. Listen to cotton farmers talk about the concrete benefits Fairtrade has brought to their communities. But also about the challenges they are facing. Film produced in part thanks to the support of the European Union.

US soldiers off-loading huge water tanks from truck 21. Villager lowers the metal water tank 22. Drilling machinery in action STORYLINE: Afghanistan's worst drought in three decades is now in it's fourth year. In some southern Afghan provinces the water table is at an all-time low. Aid groups estimate more than half of the country's 25 (m) million people are short of water. The relentless drought has devastated vast portions of the country and decimated crops and cattle. Many people now rely on food handouts from the international community. The United Nations says the drought had also changed the migratory habits of Afghanistan's nomadic population, which travels from mountains to plains and back again each year. Many have been forced to settle in one place, putting pressure on dwindling local water supplies. In the village of Kohe Safi 45 kilometres (28 miles) north-east of Kabul in Parwan province, young girls aged between five and ten years old walk two kilometres (1.25 miles) to collect sixty litres (16 US gallons/13 British gallons) of water for drinking and washing. The puddle they collect the water from is also a watering hole for their animals. Now the US CMIC (civil military) is offering hope for the villagers of Kohe Safi. Soldiers are helping drill wells and are providing the community with plastic containers for water storage. The six wells being drilled are expected to be finished by the end of April or May and will help the village through the summer when water shortages are at their peak.

Contemporary applications of anthropological concepts
In this lecture on contemporary applications of anthropological concepts, Dr. Monique Borgerhoff Mulder presents several examples of topics and research areas that are currently explored in environmental anthropology. She starts with biodiversity, and lays out the different lenses that different actors bring to the definition of biodiversity and its social benefits. She connects biodiversity to the idea of environmentally noble savages, that indigenous people are synonymous with conservation, and highlights the complex relationship between cultural and biological diversity. She then focuses on traditional ecological knowledge as a topic within which many assumptions are made, and argues that it is not static over time or necessarily aligned with the scale of environmental change. Finally, she uses examples of the tragedy of the commons and the converse idea, protected areas for conservation, and notes that anthropologists have critiques the assumptions in each of those approaches to understanding environmental challenges.

Présentation du PPAAO/WAAPP Ghana
Le PPAAO/WAAPP a été conçu avec pour objectif majeur, l'amélioration de la productivité agricole tout en favorisant l'intégration régionale comme instruments de promotion d'une croissance partagée et de réduction de la pauvreté en Afrique de l'Ouest. Aussi, l'approche adoptée pour le projet repose d'une part, sur l'intégration et l'harmonisation des politiques agricoles nationales et d'autre part, sur l'établissement de liens étroits entre la recherche, la vulgarisation, les producteurs et les opérateurs privés. Ce faisant, le WAAPP travaillera à établir la collaboration, qui manque souvent, entre les chercheurs, les services d'appui conseils et les universités afin de leur permettre de travailler en partenariat avec les producteurs agricoles, le secteur privé et la société civile pour mieux répondre de façon globale aux besoins et aux opportunités pour l'innovation dans le secteur. Cette démarche qui implique tous les acteurs sans exclusive de la recherche et développement constitue l'une des originalités du WAAPP. Une autre originalité du projet est que chacun des trois pays devra se focaliser sur une spéculation qui apporte une plus value à la sous région selon une étude régionale sur la productivité agricole réalisée par IFPRI dans la sous région de l'Afrique de l'Ouest en 2006. Dans ce cadre, le Ghana a choisi de travailler sur les racines et tubercules, le Mali sur le riz et le Sénégal sur les cultures sèches à savoir le maïs, le sorgho, le mil et le fonio. Aussi, le plan de travail de cette année de l'unité de coordination du Sénégal a mis un accent particulier sur ces spéculations. Une troisième originalité de ce projet est qu'il favorise la mobilité des chercheurs tant au niveau national que régional. Dans ce cadre, le CERAAS qui est le centre national de spécialisation du Sénégal, accueillera des chercheurs nationaux, régionaux et internationaux sur les spéculations choisies par le Sénégal. Réciproquement, les chercheurs du Sénégal devront visiter les centres nationaux de spécialisation des autres pays pour y faire valoir leur compétence. Tout ceci traduit bien les aspects de collaboration nationale et d'intégration régionale que s'est assigné le PPAAO/WAAPP. The WAAPP was designed with the main objective of improving agricultural productivity while promoting regional integration as instruments for promoting shared growth and poverty reduction in West Africa. Also, the approach adopted for the project is based partly on the integration and harmonization of national agricultural policies and secondly, the establishment of close links between research, extension, producers and private operators. In doing so, the WAAPP work to establish collaboration, often lacking among researchers, support services boards and universities to enable them to work in partnership with farmers, private sector and civil society to better respond comprehensively to the needs and opportunities for innovation in the sector. This approach involves all stakeholders inclusive of research and development is one of the original WAAPP. Another originality of the project is that each country should focus on speculation that brings added value to the sub-region as a regional study on agricultural productivity conducted by IFPRI in the sub region of West Africa in 2006. In this framework, Ghana has chosen to work on roots and tubers, Mali on rice and Senegal on dry crops namely maize, sorghum, millet and fonio. Also, the work plan for this year of the coordination unit of Senegal placed special emphasis on these speculations. A third novelty of this project is that it encourages the mobility of researchers both nationally and regionally. In this framework, CERA is the national center of specialization of Senegal, will host researchers at national, regional and international speculation chosen by Senegal. Conversely, researchers will visit Senegal national centers of specialization of other countries to enforce their jurisdiction. All this reflects the collaborative aspects of national and regional integration that has been assigned WAAPP.

Government scandal investigation finds wrongdoing
http://www.ctvvancouverisland.ca http://www.facebook.com/ctvvi VICTORIA - The head of the B.C. Public Service was ordered to investigate a scandal, and what he came up with is a political bombshell that continues to stack up casualties in the Liberal government ranks. It started with a leaked memo; a plan to use government resources to lure ethnic votes to the Liberal Party. John Dyble and his team of senior deputy ministers determined: - Officials breached the Public Service Standards of Conduct - Government resources were misused - Confidential information was sent to personal email accounts - Contracts were mishandled, forcing payment of nearly $17,000 for unapproved work And the investigation found former communications director Brian Bonney spent about half of his time working for the Liberal Party while earning $124,000 on the government payroll. Premier Christy Clark is promising to make swift changes, discipline those involved, and pay back any taxpayer money used to pay for the Liberal vote plan. "The BC Liberal Party has already written a cheque for $70,000, is what we estimate what that cost might be," Clark told reporters "If it is more, we will write another cheque." Brian Bonney also sent 1,100 confidential government emails to his personal email accounts. He left government for another job, four days before the scandal broke. Former Multiculturalism Minister John Yap was forced to leave cabinet over the scandal. He told investigators, personal email was used to avoid Freedom of Information requests. The Opposition believes Dyble's review doesn't go far enough and want an independent investigation. "The Premier's office, a Minister of The Crown and a Senior Communication Director using their offices, day after day after day to collect information from citizens and transmit it to the BC Liberal Party," John Horgan, Opposition House Leader angrily told the Legislative Press Gallery on Thursday. "Nobody seems to be concerned about that in this government, and that speaks to me about their need to spend time in opposition." Christy Clark is hoping she's done enough to put the scandal behind her so that doesn't happen. But it is certain the NDP will be reminding voters of the scandal, right up until Election Day.

UCT's Law, Race and Gender Unit takes on the controversial Traditional Courts Bill
The Law, Race and Gender unit and its partners are calling for new legislation to be drafted based on the views and needs expressed by ordinary rural people in the process of their consultation to replace the Traditional Courts Bill. The Traditional Courts Bill was withdrawn from the National Assembly in June 2011 then on the 13th of December, the Department of Justice publicised its intention to reintroduce the Bill in the National Council of Provinces in January 2012. It gave two months over Christmas for people to make submissions, setting a 15 February deadline for all submissions. The Bill was formally reintroduced in the NCOP on 26 January 2012. From here, members of the select committee will take it to their provinces for rural consultations. Once the NCOP has made amendments and a decision about the Bill, the Bill will return to the National Assembly. Most rural people remain unaware of the Bill's existence. To compensate for the lack of publicity, LRG's rural partners are mobilising -- with the support of LRG and its civil society partners -- to ensure that the people in their provinces are made aware of the Bill's content and implications.
