In line with the priority theme of this year’s Commission on the Status of Women, “Women’s empowerment and its link to sustainable development,” indigenous women have called for their empowerment to become a driving force in achieving sustainable development and in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. All over the world, indigenous women face multiple levels of discrimination in the private and public spheres. They experience violence, extreme poverty, trafficking, illiteracy, lack of access to ancestral lands, and non-existent or poor health care. At the press conference, three indigenous women will share their experiences related to leadership and the achievements that can be made when indigenous women become empowered to take on key roles in combating violence, eradicating poverty and leading political processes to make changes at the local, national and global levels.

In line with the priority theme of this year’s Commission on the Status of Women, “Women’s empowerment and its link to sustainable development,” indigenous women have called for their empowerment to become a driving force in achieving sustainable development and in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. All over the world, indigenous women face multiple levels of discrimination in the private and public spheres. They experience violence, extreme poverty, trafficking, illiteracy, lack of access to ancestral lands, and non-existent or poor health care. At the press conference, three indigenous women will share their experiences related to leadership and the achievements that can be made when indigenous women become empowered to take on key roles in combating violence, eradicating poverty and leading political processes to make changes at the local, national and global levels.

political tools – of how to respond to this situation.

Agenda 2030 provides an opportunity to correct the oversight of older women in the previous goals. The SDG (#5) on gender equality addresses violence against women and girls but it cannot stop measurement at age 49! Elder abuse, including violence, neglect, or nancial exploitation from a partner, a caregiver or any person must be recognized as a human rights issue and one that covers women of all ages in addition to girls. This session will present available data on the issue of abuse and violence against older women. Recognizing there are higher rates of elder abuse in countries where gender disparities between women and men are more severe, elder abuse remains a global problem. Recommendations for program improvements, data collection and further research will be off ered.

09:00 AM – 12:00 PM        (GA) 2016 UNIS-UN conference – 2016 Media’s Influence: Opinions, Activism, & Outcomes.
The 2016 UNIS-UN conference will focus on Media’s Influence: Opinions, Activism, and Outcomes. Media has a tremendous impact on global politics and societal issues, especially in today’s technologically driven and rapidly evolving world. Students from thirty different countries will explore media related topics such as propaganda, social reform, activism, political unrest, and the ways in which media shapes statistics and trends. We will investigate social media as a source of change and as a platform for propaganda. Social media enables businesses to advertise their products in an inexpensive and effective manner, allowing companies to enhance brand image. Social media has inspired mass movements in many countries, as well. Traditional forms of media such as television, newspapers, and magazines also have a major influence on our international relations. Traditional media offers an alternative and fascinating perspective on many issues. Nevertheless, it is important to question how this form of media has been forced to adapt to our technologically advanced generation. How has traditional media changed in the last twenty years and will it survive in the future?

This film tells the story of a 45-year-old single mother who, when diagnosed with late stage cervical cancer, decided to do something extraordinary before her death:
Break a world record by paddle boarding on the Ganges River.
A brief panel discussion following the film will explore how we can work together through the Every Woman Every Child movement to eliminate cervical cancer and how doing so will contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals related to the health of girls and women and the reduction of non-communicable diseases worldwide. Moreover, as cervical cancer is a significant risk factor for acquiring HIV and vice versa, the prevention and control of cervical cancer is closely linked to the fight against HIV/AIDS.
Event organized by the Permanent Missions of the United States of America and the Republic of Zambia to the United Nations, Every Woman Every Child and Cervical Cancer Action.

To date, CGI members have answered his call by making more than 3,200 Commitments to Action which have improved the lives of over 430 million people in more than 180 countries.This year’s theme, The Future of Impact, builds on the achievements of CGI members over the past decade and prompts us to expand and replicate proven solutions in the areas that need them the most.And I hope you can join us. We will be livestreaming this Sunday’s Opening Plenary, moderated by President Clinton and Chelsea Clinton, and many other interesting conversations and talks over the course of the meeting.Click below to receive a reminder to watch our live webcasts, starting with the Opening Plenary on Sunday, September 27.  You can also view the full webcast schedule here.We’ve accomplished so much in our first 10 years, and CGI looks forward to continuing to make a difference for many years to come.Robert Harrison Chief Executive Officer Clinton Global Initiative

WORLD OCEAN RADIO: AUGUST SUMMARY “The traditional water supply system in California has been overwhelmed by climate, industrial agriculture, and water-rich consumption that has been the envy of the world but can survive no longer without revolutionary change. If there is not enough water on the mountaintops to feed the watersheds, rivers, and reservoirs, then where will the requisite water come from?” ~ From World Ocean Radio: Desalination The following World Ocean Radio broadcasts from August can be found online at: OCEAN RADIATION www.worldoceanobservatory.org/radio-item/ocean-radiation About this episode: The West Coast of the United States seems under siege, both on land and offshore. Many inter-related consequences can be used to explain the terrestrial problems plaguing the Pacific states, but what of the issues facing the ocean? The effect of leaking radiation has long raised concerns as a cause for many inexplicable natural events. Since 2004 Ken Buesseler and his crew of volunteers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and others have been gathering water samples from Alaska to Hawaii to measure radioactivity in ocean water. In this episode of World Ocean Radio we discuss the preliminary conclusions of this research and that of other oceanographers and marine chemists along the western shores. THE OUTLAW OCEAN www.worldoceanobservatory.org/radio-item/outlaw-ocean About this episode: A recent series of investigative stories entitled “The Outlaw Ocean” by Ian Urbina of the New York Times exposes the dark side of the deep sea, describing real abuses, crime and violence in international waters. In this episode of World Ocean Radio we summarize the four-part “Outlaw Ocean” series, praising Urbina’s work to educate the public by exposing the labor, human rights, and environmental abuses occurring out of sight, on the high seas. DESALINATION www.worldoceanobservatory.org/radio-item/desalination About this episode: A San Diego County Water Authority project to construct a 6-acre desalination plant, the largest of its kind in the United States, comes at a time when the traditional water supply system in California is overwhelmed by changing climate, high agricultural demand, and high consumption by an increased population. In this episode of World Ocean Radio we describe the process of desalination, break down the numbers, and discuss the objections to and development of this increasingly necessary technology which has the potential to produce billions of gallons of potable water per day. SAND WARS www.worldoceanobservatory.org/radio-item/sand-wars About this episode: After water, the largest volume of natural material used to support global growth is sand. Demand has grown exponentially in the last two decades as Arab and Asian nations grapple with ways to expand land mass, economic zone, and geo-political standing. In this episode of World Ocean Radio we describe the impacts of sand extraction on the environment and outline the true measure of its cost and the prospects for international protection and oversight. WORLD OCEAN RADIO provides coverage of a broad spectrum of ocean issues from science and education to advocacy and exemplary projects. World Ocean Radio, a project of the World Ocean Observatory, is a weekly series of brief audio essays available for syndicated use at no cost by college and community radio stations worldwide. FMI: WorldOceanObservatory/world-ocean-radio WORLD OCEAN RADIO GLOBAL offers a selection of episodes in Portuguese, Spanish, French, Swahili, and Mandarin. FMI: WorldOceanObservatory.org/world-ocean-radio-global.
