Event Invitation | Shaping the Contribution of the Trade System to the 2030 Agenda | 3 June 2016

Dear colleagues,

The International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development (ICTSD) and International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) invite you to a policy dialogue in Geneva on Friday 3 June. For those not in Geneva, the event will also be live-streamed on ICTSD’s website here.

About the event

 

Achieving the objectives of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development will require coherent support from international policy frameworks, and the trade system will be central to this effort. With the substance of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda (AAAA) finalised, policy-making attention has now turned to implementation and to how progress against these important commitments made will be measured and reviewed. This event will be the first in a series of policy dialogues exploring the role of the trade system in supporting the 2030 Agenda.
The first part of the event will provide an update from New York on the state of play on the 2030 Agenda, and in particular the negotiations around the Agenda’s follow-up and review mechanisms. It will also include the presentation of a policy brief published jointly by ICTSD and IISD that discusses options for follow-up and review of the trade elements of the Agenda.
The second part of the event will consist of an interactive panel discussion that will explore the potential role of the trade system in supporting the 2030 Agenda, in particular in light of developing countries’ interests, and how any potential areas of policy incoherence could be resolved.


Practical information

 

Time: The event will begin at 14:00. A light lunch will be served from 13:00, please notify Natalia Cubilla (ncubilla@ictsd.ch) of any dietary restrictions.
Venue: Room C1, Graduate Institute, Chemin Eugène-Rigot 2, 1202 Geneva
Registration: Please register online here before 17:00 CEST on Wednesday 1 June.
Webcast: This event will also be streamed live online on the event’s webpage here.

INVITATION: UNEA-2 Green Room Event on Thu 26 May: “Detoxify: Mitigating Black Carbon and other Pollutants from Brick Production – Multiple Benefits for Healthy People and Climate”

Dear Sir, Dear Madam, 

The Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS);

in partnership with
the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) and Lead Partners of the CCAC Bricks Initiative

cordially invites you to attend our official United Nations
Environment Assembly (UNEA-2) Green Room Event

Detoxify: Mitigating Black Carbon and other Pollutants from Brick Production – Multiple Benefits for Healthy People and Climate

Thursday, May 26, 2016

16:00 – 17:00

United Nations Environment Assembly, Gigiri compound

Conference Room 14

Nairobi, Kenya

The reduction of Short-Lived Climate Pollutants (SLCPs) – black carbon, methane, HFCs and ground-level ozone – offers a crucial opportunity to combat near-term climate change while at the same time contributing to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, i.e. a cleaner environment, which is essential for human health and well-being. The brick production sector is an important area where significant emission reductions can be achieved by reducing the emissions from black carbon and other SLCPs from brick kilns, which are responsible for severe air pollution in many cities around the world. Recent studies estimate that implementing more efficient brick production technologies can result in emissions reductions from 10 to 50%.

The IASS is a Lead Partner in the “Mitigating Black Carbon and other Pollutants from Brick Production” Initiative of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC), a global partnership of over 100 state and non-state partners, taking voluntary action to reduce SLCPs globally and across multiple sectors. The 16 key measures the CCAC supports can reduce global warming by 0.6°C by 2050 if they are implemented by 2030.

By working to reduce black carbon and other pollutant emissions from brick kilns, the Initiative makes an important contribution to the achievement of the environmental dimension of the 2030 Agenda. In particular, such reductions contribute to Goal 2 by improving ecosystem health and agricultural yields; Goals 3 and 11 by reducing indoor and outdoor air pollution – the leading cause of premature deaths worldwide; Goal 13 by reducing near-term climate warming; and Goals 9 and 12 by promoting greater adoption of clean and environmentally sound technologies in production processes (e.g. brick kilns).

The Green Room event will showcase the work of the CCAC Brick Production Initiative, highlighting how multiple SDGs and targets can be achieved simultaneously through targeted SLCP reduction measures whose benefits can be realized within the timeframe of the SDGs, i.e. by 2030. Representatives from the CCAC Secretariat, state and non-state Lead Partners of the Initiative as well as private sector Implementers will share their insights, lessons learned, and thoughts on the way forward to a detoxified brick sector by 2030.

Confirmed Speakers:

-          Helena Molin Valdés, Head of the Secretariat, Climate and Clean Air Coalition

-          Immaculate Simiyu, National Environment Management Authority, Kenya

-          N.N., Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN), Switzerland

-          Luca De Giovanetti, Advisor Environment and Climate Change, Swisscontact

-          Prof. Dr. Mark Lawrence, Managing Scientific Director, IASS

Moderated by Dr. Birgit Lode, IASS and Steering Committee CCAC

  • Access to energy for women and girls is critical to achieving gender equality through reduction of unpaid care work, increased socio-economic status, and improved health. Vulnerable women and girls (refugees, internally displaced etc.) suffer the most and need to be reached with urgency.
  • Scaling up affordable and reliable energy services through women’s entrepreneurship can provide a dynamic engine for economic development, poverty elimination and women’s economic empowerment.
A number of recent initiatives including good practices and lessons, tools and techniques, analyses frameworks, and resources will be shared at this Deep Dive workshop.

4:00 – 5:00 p.m.                  Developing and Investing in Gender-Informed Business Models

dear hermanas y hermanos .. we have had and have a lot going here… we need to advance.. UNITE, UNITE , unite all efforts.and this a must now, now .. no later. while here in El Salvador, violence is such that the army and police are fighting with the gangs.. shootings are so, that we need to find ways to go home and on time by 6 PM the latest.. as major and regular streets and roads are closed.. it is a social war.. and as ebola and such illnesses, these are wars and sicknesses of poverty… i must see the deaths in the Mediterranean, the bombing of Yemen, and all the various wars being waged right now, in the same way.. and it does not let me sleep .. and i am happy I can not sleep.. for how can we sleep while all this is happening in our watch.. what is the way? MDGs, SDGs, Financing for Development? all of these , even as OFFICIAL NEGOTIATIONS for the POST 2015 NEW DEVELOPMENT AGENDA IS GOING ON.. they at this point are no way and no hope..
 
“NO ONE LEFT BEHIND IS THE SLOGAN”.. SLOGAN?  I CAN ATTEST THAT THE GREAT MAJORITIES ARE NOW AND INTO THE FUTURE BEING LEFT BEHIND.. While we are told that in the last year the number of BILLIONAIRES HAS DOUBLED!!! is this the way to measure DEVELOPMENT..?  there is  talk about energy for all, sustainable development, plan urgent meetings about how to increase the budget to control migrations in the Mediterranean, and in Central America, officially, the Alliance for Prosperity has been created, so the unacompanied children of Central American do not come to the Southern border of the USA.. threats are being issued– calling one country or the other, a major threat to the security of a region, or the world, this are ways of preparing for more wars.. 
 
I, We, need to make sense of this.. it is our right and  moral duty.. we must read the signs of the times.. for me it is clear that the financial architecture must be about making sure that the slave markets are no more, in any expression or ways, that development is about sustainability, or is not development, that development is about the enjoyment of life, we have been born to live, the abundancy of life, that is to feel secure, and live to our old age in decency and dignity at all times of our age, regardless of any difference at all.. the indicators of peace, is the fulfillment of all Human Rights, the economic, social and cultural rights of peoples, and these scenarios can not be, if we are not at peace with the planet, the care of Mother Earth is a guarantee for life as we needed to be… THESE NEEDS, PRINCIPLES FOR BEING CAN NOT, AND MUST NOT  BE NEGOTIATED.. 
 
SO, WHAT IS OUR CALL? TO FIND AND BE ABOUT THE WAYS TO BE ABOUT THIS.. We can not be having superficial costly campaigns, and ask for charities or favors…
 
Charity is not, and can not ever be  the answer..this is again the Missionary Enterprise.. that is what Privatization and Private Public Parnerships as they are fremed are about.  The STATE THROUGH THE ADMINISTRATION OF GOVENRMENT is the guarantor of all that must be about the fulfillment of all rights, and this CAN BE DONE , with the ACCOMPANIMENT OF THE UN. The UN was created for this purpose, and this is still its call and mandate. WE are the guarantors that this is.. it is ours, OUR PRACTICE OF GOVERNANCE..
 
What is the way, what are the ways? LET US PRIORITIZE THIS DISCERNMENT NOW.. OR WE WILL BE AT THE TAIL END OF ALL PROCESSES, WHICH MIGHT  NOT REALLY BE  ABOUT LIFE, JUSTICE AND PEACE..
 
OUR CONSULTATIONS ON MDGs, SDGs, and the Dialogos on Localization/Territorialization — we have documented that the communities have plenty of local solutions on CC and social-economic conditions, must of which have been alerady part of the daily life of people for centuries.. this is what we know as COSMO VISION, IN LATIN AMERICA WHAT IS NOW REFERRED TO AS BIEN/BUEN VIVIR.. this is not an alternative, the paradigm we are living is the alternative, that is a DETOUR OF WHAT WE SHOULD HAVE BEEN LIVING ALL ALONG.. THIS IS WHAT COLONIALISM IS ALL ABOUT..

Aldo is one of some 25 speakers invited to speak 2-3 minutes each.

Aldo is following the FfD negotiations this week at the UN, so we would like to call a meeting of NGOs to offer preliminary inputs for the NGO statement that Aldo will then draft for further review and discussion before the interactive dialogue next Thursday.

INFORMATION ON IGN INTERACTIVE DIALOGUE:

The Co-Facilitators will convene an interactive dialogue with Major Groups and other stakeholders engaged in the FfD and post-2015 processes on T hursday, 23 April 2015 from 10:00am-1:00 pm, during the joint April session of the intergovernmental negotiations on the post-2015 development agenda (21-24 April 2015).

 [APRN Members] #NoLandNoLife Groups to declare 29 March as “Day of the Landless”, launch anti-land grabbing campaign

Reference: Ms. Sarojeni Rengam, PANAP Executive Director, sarojeni.rengam@panap.net #NoLandNoLife Groups to declare 29 March as “Day of the Landless†, launch anti-land grabbing campaign PENANG, Malaysia – The PAN Asia Pacific (PANAP) will join organizations of farmers, farmworkers, fisherfolk, indigenous peoples, rural women and youth across the Asia Pacific to declare 29 March as the “Day of the Landless†through coordinated actions. 29 March is a historic event in the people’s struggle for land and resources in the region. The Asian Peasant Coalition (APC) was founded on the said date 12 years ago to challenge imperialist and feudal oppression and exploitation. The declaration is being led by APC to commemorate its anniversary this year. The declaration of the “Day of the Landless†will also mark the launching of the “No Land, No Life!†campaign, a regional initiative that aims to highlight land and resource grabbing as a human rights issue. “Through this campaign, we will collectively work to engage concerned officials and agencies at the local, regional and global levels to address the human rights violations arising from and related to land and resource grabbing,†said Sarojeni Rengam, PAN Asia Pacific (PANAP) Executive Director. About a quarter of the world’s 1.1 billion poor people are landless, according to the latest data from the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD). Almost 200 million do not have enough land to provide a decent standard of living. Meanwhile, data compiled by Global Witness show that between 2002 and 2013, some 908 land and environmental activists were killed in 35 countries. Just over 1% of known cases have been resolved. Other organizations participating in the coordinated actions declaring the “Day of the Landless†are:
  • The Peasant Movement of the Philippines (KMP), which together with the youth arm of the National Network of Agrarian Reform Advocates (NNARA Youth), will hold an education festival and seed distribution activities in a province near Manila, Philippines on 28 to 29 March.
  • The Alliance of Agrarian Reform Movement (AGRA), which will organize a public educational activity and a protest rally in Jakarta, Indonesia on 28 March.
  • The Sarawak Dayak Iban Association (SADIA), which will hold an indigenous ritual on “land cleansing†and a workshop on native customary rights and land struggle on 28 March in Kampung Sungai lingkau Simunjan, State of Sarawak in Malaysia.
  • The National Fisheries Solidarity Movement (NAFSO), which will organize a public forum, art exhibit and cultural activities in Negombo, Sri Lanka on 28 March that would also highlight the role of women.

Other groups that are expected to also organize activities as part of the “Day of the Landless†declaration are the Society for Rural Education and Development (SRED) and Tamil Nadu Women’s Forum (TNWF) in India; the Human Development Organization (HDO) in Sri Lanka; and the Pakistan Kissan Mazdoor Tehreek (PKMT) and Roots for Equity (ROE) in Pakistan. For updates and additional information about the various activities on the “Day of the Landless†and the “No Land, No Life!†campaign, please visit http://www.panap.net/campaigns/land-food-rights/noland-nolife

WATCH NOW! The Road to Development Justice

Inequality is now so high that a woman garment worker earns less in a year than the Walton family earns every second. Climate change will force 50 million people to migrate from Bangladesh alone. The global crises of inequality and climate are both caused by our global economy. Together they threaten the future of humanity. It’s time for a new model – a model of Development Justice. This video explains Development Justice and the shifts civil society in the Global South demand. It makes the case for why we need a new development model to address the double crises of inequality and environmental collapse.

Interactive Panel Discussion “The Poisoned Poor: Why Safe Management of Chemicals and Wastes Matters

Dear Madam/Sir,

On behalf of the Governments of Sweden and Uruguay, and in collaboration with United Nations Environment Programme, the Secretariat of the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions and the Global Alliance on Health and Pollution, we are pleased to invite you to attend an Interactive Panel Discussion “The Poisoned Poor: Why Safe Management of Chemicals and Wastes Matters for Sustainable Development that will take place on 24 March, 1:15 – 2:30 pm, in the UN Headquarters, New York. The global community attaches great importance to the sound management of chemicals and waste for the protection of human health and the environment. At the World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002, governments agreed that, by 2020, chemicals should be used and produced in ways that lead to the minimization of significant adverse effects on human health and the environment. The 2020 target was further recognized in the Rio+20 outcome “The Future We Want”, where it was extended to cover hazardous wastes. The objective of the panel discussion is to demonstrate the benefits of integrating the sound management of chemicals and waste into the Post- 2015 Development Agenda and sustainable development goals at different levels, and to discuss how progress against goals and targets related to chemicals and waste can be measured. The programme for the event is attached. Looking forward to your participation at the panel discussion.

Uitnodiging Think Global Day – Is er leven na 2015?

.online versie

,

WM Logo Think Global                               logo 11.11.11 11.11.11 nodigt je uit voor de 3de Think Global Day Kan je deze mail niet optimaal lezen? Bekijk dan hier de online versie Seminarie Is er leven na 2015? Area 42 Paleizenstraat 46 A – 1030 Brussel Click here for the English invitation In 2015 wordt de eindafrekening gemaakt van de Millenniumdoelen (MDGs). Tegelijk lopen onderhandelingen over een nieuwe reeks ontwikkelingsdoelstellingen, de SDG’s of Sustainable Development Goals. Nog in 2015 komen er nieuwe internationale afspraken over de financiering van ontwikkelingssamenwerking en de strijd tegen de klimaatverandering. Het onderwerp van deze Think Global Day is dan ook: Wat zijn de kansen en valkuilen voor een nieuw kader voor ontwikkeling en internationale samenwerking? Met o.a. Amina Mohammed, (speciaal adviseur van Ban Ki-moon voor Post-2015), Lidy Nacpil (Jubilee South), Paul Lucas (Nederlands Planbureau voor de Leefomgeving) en Alexander De Croo (minister van Ontwikkelingssamenwerking). Een initiatief van 11.11.11 in samenwerking met MO*. Programma 13u00  Ontvangst en koffie 13u30 Welkom door Jos Geysels (voorzitter 11.11.11, minister van staat)

De do’s-and-don’ts voor 11.11.11

Wat moet het nieuwe kader volgens 11.11.11 absoluut wel en absoluut niet bevatten?

  • Bart Tierens, beleidsmedewerker 11.11.11

Keynote: Het nieuwe kader, ambitieus én haalbaar?

Het nieuwe kader begint vaste vorm aan te nemen. De secretaris-generaal van de VN schreef een samenvattend rapport met een aantal sterke uitgangspunten en aanbevelingen. Ook werden er 17 voorlopige doelen gedefinieerd. Gaat wat nu voorligt voor de onderhandelingen ver genoeg? Zullen de sterke punten de onderhandelingsmolen overleven? En zal het plan uiteindelijk haalbaar en uitvoerbaar zijn?

  • Amina Mohammed, VN, speciaal adviseur van de secretaris-generaal voor Post-2015 development planning

14u30

  Deeldebatten

De uitvoering (means of implementation) De sterke uitgangspunten en aanbevelingen blijven dode letter als de instrumenten om het kader echt te laten functioneren niet tegelijk worden uitgewerkt. Het recht op ontwikkeling heeft weinig om het lijf zonder middelen, een goede opvolgingsstructuur en concrete instrumenten om wie grote beslissingen neemt ook ter verantwoording te kunnen roepen.

  • Dries Lesage, Professor UGent
  • Lidy Nacpil, Jubilee South
  • Jean Saldanha, CIDSE
  • Moderator : John Vandaele, MO*

Meer Milieu? De ecologische doelen in het nieuwe kader In de 17 doelen die nu op tafel liggen zijn de ecologische aspecten veel sterker en uitdrukkelijker opgenomen dan in de Millenniumdoelen. Of niet? We gaan naar een beleid waarin de sociale, economische en ecologische dimensie van duurzaamheid goed geïntegreerd wordt aangepakt. Of niet?

  • Paul Lucas, Nederlands Planbureau voor de Leefomgeving
  • Sabien Leemans, WWF-Belgium
  • Moderator : Alma De Walsche, MO*

Interne hervormingen in de EU en België Het nieuwe kader wordt universeel. Dat betekent dat de rechten en plichten overal, in alle landen en voor iedereen moeten gelden. Het gaat dus niet langer louter over de aanpak van sociale problemen in de ontwikkelingslanden en de belofte dat de wereldgemeenschap daarbij een handje zal helpen. België en Europa zullen ook sterk moeten sleutelen aan hun interne sociaal-economische en milieubeleid. Denk maar aan de strijd tegen ongelijkheid, voor een goede sociale bescherming en waardig werk. Welke hervormingen zijn nodig?

  • Frank Vandenbroucke, Professor KULeuven
  • Rudy Delarue, Europese Commissie DG Tewerkstelling en Sociale Zaken

15u30 Koffiepauze 16u00 Politiek slotdebat De politieke inzet van de onderhandelingen in de komende maanden. Wat kunnen/moeten België en de EU op tafel leggen?

  • Amina Mohammed, VN, speciaal adviseur Post-2015
  • Alexander De Croo, minister van Ontwikkelingssamenwerking
  • Lidy Nacpil, Jubilee South
  • Bogdan Vanden Berghe, directeur 11.11.11

Cameroon American Council
Helene –
Founded in 2010, with a mission to Build Capacity, Relevance and Visibility of Africans in USA, the Cameroon American Council turns 5 in 2015! email_photo.jpg
 So, on this 25th Day of the New Year 2015, the Cameroon American Council is thrilled to announce that, we have placed 15 fellows in internships at the United States Congress!

To celebrate our 5th anniversary, we expanded our CAC-African Congressional Fellows Program from 2- 3 Fellows in prior years, to 15 Fellows this 2015 Spring Semester!

Have you been to an ‘Africa Policy Forum’ and noticed the lack of US-based Africans as panelists/presenters, while a majority of Africans seat as audience members listening to ‘experts’ who hardly engage with us, talk about projects/policies in our African villages and hometowns paid for by our African immigrant tax dollars? If yes, please consider making a $25 donation to support our program, as we groom and grow the next generation of policy experts from within our African immigrant community Why donate today? Our CAC-African Congressional Fellows tend to be non-traditional students, who have a full life of work, family, community, faith and education commitments. Yet they recognize that engaging with elected officials and understanding legislation is one of the critical ways of uplifting and advocating for our African community here in the US and back home. We welcome questions and suggestions about inviting, partnering, mentoring or sponsoring our Spring 2015 African Congressional Fellows.

Together we can, Sylvie Bello http://africansincongress.nationbuilder.com/ PS. Your generous donation of $25 (or any amount) will support the speaker series, field trips/tours, career coaching and future recruitment efforts to have Africans intern/work/engage with the US Congress. To read more about some of our 15 Spring 2015 Fellows please check out our website:  http://africansincongress.nationbuilder.com/2015_spring_fellows (Pictured: CAC African Congressional Fellows- Dani from Cameroon (in glasses) and Yoli from South Africa, on their first day of work in the Office of Congressman Charlie Rangel of Harlem-New York.)

Join us for a Music Concert at Carnegie Hall on 26 January

WM NY Banner Sheherazadehal

View it in your browser.

Hello Ms. H. H. Oord,

Just before the holidays, I wrote to you about the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women, the only grant-making mechanism at the United Nations dedicated to support efforts to end violence against women and girls.
Next week, on 26 January, musicians from world-renowned orchestras, ensembles and academies are performing at Carnegie Hall, New York, and donating their artistry to support the UN Trust Fund!
If you and your friends are in the New York area, we want you there!   Join us for a star-studded ensemble on 26 January, 2015, at 8 pm, led by Concertmaster Elmira Darvarova, who was the first female Concertmaster in the history of the MET’s Opera Orchestra.
Also performing will be the distinguished Mezzo-Soprano and MET Opera star Susanne Mentzer, a powerful figure of resilience who is a survivor of domestic violence herself.   Tickets range from USD $35 – $149 and can be purchased at carnegiehall.org, at CarnegieCharge 212-247-7800, or at the Box Office at 57th and Seventh. There are discounts available for students and senior citizens with ID at the Box Office, and a special 20% discount for YOU (use discount code TSI20814).
Or better still, WEAR ORANGE AND WIN A FREE TICKET TO THE CONCERT! Here’s how it works:
  • By Friday, 23 January, tweet or Instagram your photo with the orange outfit you would wear, and let us know why you are taking a stand to end violence against women using the hashtag #Iwearorangebecause
  • Promote the concert among your networks and friends as best as possible. Sample tweets:
We will tweet the name of the winner(s) on Saturday, 24 January from @SayNO_UNiTE, based on the originality of the outfit and the extent of social media promotion. If you are among the winners, please send the full legal name of you and your guest in a Direct Message (private tweet) to @SayNO_UNiTE, and pick up your pair of tickets at Will Call on the evening of the concert.
The benefit concert at Carnegie Hall is the culmination of a series of events in Washington D.C., New Delhi and New York, and will mark the grand finale of the Scheherazade Initiative, a musical concert project by the UN Trust Fund and Music For Life International, which brings together global leaders in the artistic, musical and diplomatic communities to raise funds and public awareness of violence against women and girls.
The event is a tribute to the resilience of women, their families, and their communities in the face of violence and an urgent call to the global community to take action. The net proceeds will benefit the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women that supports programmes on the ground.
Performers and the audience are encouraged to wear the colour orange, which has been designated by the UN Secretary-General’s UNiTE Campaign to symbolize a future without violence against women and girls.
For more information, click here.
Thank you, and hope to see some of you at Carnegie Hall next week!   Sincerely, Urjasi Rudra Say NO – UNiTE Team, UN Women
