They provide a wealth of environmental, economic, social and cultural services that contribute to the wellbeing of every human being. These services are being disrupted and destroyed as a result of the approximately 13 million hectares of forests lost each year. In particular, deforestation and forest degradation is estimated to contribute to around 12 percent of annual global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. REDD+ is a key vehicle for engendering the restructuring of the global political economy that is necessary for a successful global transition to a green economy. In Indonesia, REDD+ is a key entry point for a broader process of constructing a resilient, low-carbon national economy guided by the principle of sustainable growth with equity. Since 2010, when Indonesia’s REDD+ Preparedness phase (Phase I) was launched, the country has made significant progress in preparing the institutional, policy and social framework to support large-scale REDD+ implementation. Along with only a handful of other countries, Indonesia has completed the Preparedness phase and is now entering the second phase of its partnership with Norway, ‘Transformation’, whereby the wide-ranging changes necessitated by REDD+ implementation will begin to be realised.At the end of the Indonesia-Norway Partnership Phase II, Indonesia aims to be ready for payments for verified emission reductions by demonstrating achievements of REDD+ objectives in selected priority areas, thus entering Phase III – Contributions for Verified Emission Reduction. On the sidelines of the 2014 United Nations Annual General Assembly Session, the Government of Indonesia will present its vision for REDD+, and outline the progress made so far. The objective of the event is to share and deepen understanding of the issues that Indonesia has experienced, and may experience in the future, on its path to achieving sustainable development and growth with equity. The key foci will be on showcasing the achievement of Indonesia on the reduction of emissions since the G20 in 2009 and  to encourage further collaborative partnerships with other countries to promote the reduction of emission through REDD+.” 11:00 AM – 01:00 PM        (CR.7) Curbing illicit financial flows for domestic resourse mobilisation and sustainable development in the post-2015 era. With the proposed target by the UN OWG to significantly reduce by 2030 illicit financial flows as background, this Side Event aims to identify concrete international actions needed in key areas for achieving this target, such as international tax evasion and avoidance, money laundering, bribery, and asset recovery; consider ways to overcome implementation challenges and how to more effectively mobilise domestic resources for sustainable development.

Programme: http://www.un.org/webcast/pdfs/140924am-oecd.pdf 11:30 AM – 01:00 PM        (CR.2) Towards inclusive societies: empowerment and education as a strategy to prevent genocide (Ministerial Side-Event). The aim of the side event is to explore how to tackle the root causes of hate speech, in particular via targeted awareness raising and educational initiatives and programmes for online communication.

Recognizing the 2005 commitment made by ASEAN Member states, and mindful of the on-going multi-track efforts in the region aimed at promoting the goals of the Responsibility to Protect, in April 2013 Dr. Surin convened a small group of eminent persons to establish a High Level Advisory Panel on the Responsibility to Protect in Southeast Asia.

In 2013, Mr. Adama Dieng, Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations and Special Advisor to the Secretary-General on the Prevention of Genocide wrote to Dr. Surin Pitsuwan, former Secretary-General of ASEAN, requesting advice on the steps that might be taken to promote the Responsibility to Protect in Southeast Asia. Recognizing the 2005 commitment made by ASEAN Member states, and mindful of the on-going multi-track efforts in the region aimed at promoting the goals of the Responsibility to Protect, in April 2013 Dr. Surin convened a small group of eminent persons to establish a High Level Advisory Panel on the Responsibility to Protect in Southeast Asia. The main objective of the High Level Advisory Panel is to support efforts to promote the Responsibility to Protect and to contribute further to its implementation in the ASEAN region. By presenting analysis and recommendations, the Panel aims to contribute ideas for the strengthening of regional capacity to prevent genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity and protect the peoples of Southeast Asia from these crimes, thereby mainstreaming the Responsibility to Protect in Southeast Asia. It is against this background that the Report now being presented was prepared. It reflects the deliberations of the panel’s members on the kinds of challenges faced by states and non-state actors in mainstreaming the Responsibility to Protect in Southeast Asia. In addressing these challenges, the Report pays particular attention to the role of ASEAN in supporting the prevention of genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. 10:00 AM – 01:00 PM        (TCC) General Assembly: UN High Level Forum on the Culture of Peace. – Opening segment – High Level Segment General Debate Website: http://www.un.org/en/ga/president/68/events/culture_of_peace.shtml 10:00 AM – 06:00 PM        (CR.3) Second regular session of the UNICEF Executive Board (9-12 September 2014) The Executive Board reviews UNICEF activities and approves its policies, country programmes and budgets.

An inclusive and universal agenda is not enough to guarantee full participation in decision-making. It is also critical to ensure full participation in governance and accountability frameworks. In this session we will examine the prerequisites for building an enabling environment that guarantees civil society participation. We will also discuss the role of multi-stakeholder partnerships in strengthening the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development. Most importantly, we will discuss participation modalities that ensure the participation of all relevant stakeholders in governance and accountability frameworks, especially those who are traditionally excluded from decision-making. http://outreach.un.org/ngorelations/conference-2014/ 04:30 PM – 06:00 PM        (CR.1) 65th UN DPI/NGO Conference: “2015 and Beyond: Our Action Agenda” (27-29 August 2014) – Poverty Eradication, Roundtable 2: Fighting Inequalities – Economic, Social, Political and Environmental. Currently, we see rising inequalities related to socio-economic status, gender, access to resources and services, erosion of social protection, environmental justice and the increasing marginalization of those living in poverty, even in places where economic growth is robust. At this Roundtable session, we will discuss how these inequalities can be arrested and reversed through effective advocacy and just public policies. In addition, we will examine the need for participatory and robust accountability frameworks, including disaggregated targets, in all global partnerships. http://outreach.un.org/ngorelations/conference-2014/                                                Thursday, August 28, 2014 09:45 AM – 10:45 AM        Security Council Media Stakeout (Syria). 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM        Security Council: Middle East (Syria) 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM        (CR.1) 65th UN DPI/NGO Conference: “2015 and Beyond: Our Action Agenda” (27-29 August 2014) – Sustainable Development, Roundtable 2: Urgent! Sustainable Management of Natural Resources and Ecosystems. The post-2015 agenda must address global resource constraints and achieve a more equitable distribution of resources for current and future generations. In this Roundtable we will discuss ways to support economic development while protecting and restoring natural resources. We will explore the balance between sustainable production and consumption with economic development, and the role of the public and private sectors in managing natural resources. http://outreach.un.org/ngorelations/conference-2014/ 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM        (TCC) 65th UN DPI/NGO Conference: “2015 and Beyond: Our Action Agenda” (27-29 August 2014) – Sustainable Development, Roundtable 1: The Resource Nexus: Food, Water, Sanitation, Energy. Food, water and sanitation, and energy are the “resource nexus” at the core of sustainable development and the overarching goal of poverty eradication. The resource nexus is intimately linked with sustainable consumption and production patterns. This relationship, when mismanaged, aggravates resource scarcity and can lead to conflict. This session will explore how to achieve equitable access to food, water and sanitation, and sustainable energy, and address the growing rural-urban divide. http://outreach.un.org/ngorelations/conference-2014/ 12:00 PM – 01:00 PM        Noon Briefing and guest: Nicholas Rosellini, Deputy Director of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Bureau for Asian and the Pacific, on findings from a new report on social exclusion in the Pacific. 03:00 PM – 04:30 PM        (TCC) 65th UN DPI/NGO Conference: “2015 and Beyond: Our Action Agenda” (27-29 August 2014) – Human Rights, Roundtable 1: (Really) Leaving No One Behind. The post-2015 development agenda must be inclusive and universal. How can women, children, youth, older people, indigenous peoples, people with disabilities, LGBT and other marginalized communities exercise their right to participate in the design and implementation of the SDGs? We will discuss how human rights standards and mechanisms can help underpin the meaningful participation of all people in the national implementation of the SDGs, and in efforts to hold development actors accountable to these Goals. We will also discuss strategies to ensure full transparency and public accountability over the design of national indicators to monitor progress. http://outreach.un.org/ngorelations/conference-2014/ 03:00 PM – 04:30 PM        (CR.1) 65th UN DPI/NGO Conference: “2015 and Beyond: Our Action Agenda” (27-29 August 2014) – Human Rights, Roundtable 2: Eradicating Poverty: A Human Rights Imperative. Since the Millennium Summit in 2000, the United Nations, governments, civil society and other stakeholders have been engaged in an historic enterprise to achieve the Millennium Development Goals and are now defining a new sustainable development agenda for 2015-2030. The post-2015 sustainable development agenda should have a more ambitious and universal commitment to end all forms of poverty, everywhere, by 2030. This Roundtable discussion will explore how to aim for the complete eradication of poverty, including the key elements necessary to irreversibly end poverty, particularly for the most marginalized and vulnerable. Key in achieving this goal will be the involvement of those living in extreme poverty. Poverty is a multi-dimensional human rights issue that encompasses access to and management of resources, capabilities, choices, security and power. The conversation will focus on how the end of poverty can be achieved by promoting human rights and respecting planetary boundaries. http://outreach.un.org/ngorelations/conference-2014/ 10:00 PM – 06:00 AM (+1)        Alliance of Civilizations Sixth Global Forum (Bali, Indonesia, 29-30 August 2014) http://www.unaoc.org/global-forums/bali/                                                Friday, August 29, 2014 10:00 PM – 06:00 AM        Alliance of Civilizations Sixth Global Forum (Bali, Indonesia, 29-30 August 2014) http://www.unaoc.org/global-forums/bali/ 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM        (CR.1) 65th UN DPI/NGO Conference: “2015 and Beyond: Our Action Agenda” (27-29 August 2014) – Climate Change, Roundtable 2: Climate Justice in Practice. Climate justice acknowledges that the poor and marginalized are disproportionately burdened by the impacts of climate change. It is also about changing policies that cause climate change and contribute to continued inequalities. Viewed through this lens, climate change threatens the entire post-2015 agenda. At this Roundtable we will discuss how to ensure that climate change does not reverse development gains of households and communities, or hinder their efforts to escape poverty. The session will focus on building resilience and disaster risk reduction with these communities through human and institutional capacity building, access and rights to information, decision-making processes and productive resources, and technology as linked to the post-2015 agenda. http://outreach.un.org/ngorelations/conference-2014/ 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM        (TCC) 65th UN DPI/NGO Conference: “2015 and Beyond: Our Action Agenda” (27-29 August 2014) – Climate Change, Roundtable 1: Post-2015 and the UNFCCC Processes: Can They Be Friends? In 2015, the UNFCCC COP 21 in Paris and the launch of the Post-2015 Agenda will culminate within months of each other. This Roundtable will discuss the interlinkages between both processes and the benefits and drawbacks of having two separate tracks in the medium and long terms. Low-carbon development, adaptation, disaster risk reduction and finance will all be considered. http://outreach.un.org/ngorelations/conference-2014/ 12:00 PM – 01:00 PM        Noon Briefing 03:00 PM – 04:30 PM        (TCC) 65th UN DPI/NGO Conference: “2015 and Beyond: Our Action Agenda” (27-29 August 2014) – Closing Session.

UN Foundation – 5 Facts that Give You Hope

Dear , Big news came out yesterday: The annual report on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) -eight goals established in 2000 by world leaders at the United Nations- shows that the world is making significant progress in reducing poverty, improving health, and saving lives. You can read the report here, and read on for some of the important findings:

  • FACT: The number of children who die before the age of 5 has been reduced by nearly half. In 1990, an estimated 12.6 million children died before the age of 5. By 2012, that number had been cut to an estimated 6.6 million children.
  • FACT: Global actions to prevent and treat malaria averted an estimated 3.3 million deaths, mostly of children under 5, from 2000 to 2012.
  • FACT: The proportion of people living in extreme poverty was cut in half between 1990 and 2010.
  • FACT: All developing regions in the world have achieved, or are close to achieving, gender parity in primary education.
  • FACT: From 1990 to 2012, more than 2.3 billion people gained access to an improved source of drinking water.

The MDGs have spurred the world to act and when we act, progress is possible. We’ve made important gains, but we have more work to do. Join us in helping keep the momentum going by raising awareness of the progress we have made. Thanks for your help!

Each person who watches the play will have a different opinion. The play depicts the personal, sociological and cultural dynamics of development through the microcosm of one consultation meeting—has the power to mirror back how the attitudes, backgrounds, experiences and personalities of all ‘stakeholders’ concretely effect development dialogues and outcomes. 03:00 PM – 06:00 PM        (CR.5, NLB > To be confirmed by UNTV) UNDP event 04:00 PM – 06:00 PM        (CR.4, NLB) Massive open online courses (MOOCs) in the Developing World: Democratization of knowledge or academic hype?

Happy Internatio​nal Day of Biological Diversity!

With a particular focus on Island Biodiversity this year, PCI Media Impact proudly celebrates this meaningful day. With five active community action campaigns in five Caribbean countries, our My Island – My Community program is addressing critical climate change and biodiversity issues while raising awareness among the community (particularly children) across the islands. Building on this momentous day, our My Island – My Community program staff in St. Lucia is conducting several community outreach activities, including mascot school visits, to promote key environmental messages and to discuss the importance of biodiversity conservation. Moreover, primary school students are tree planting along the Canaries River and are participating in a poster competition through which prizes will be awarded in a ceremony held at the Soufriere Waterfront. Our very own Jessica Robbins, PCI Media Impact’s Islands Communications Officer, in partnership with the Global Island Partnership (GLISPA) has published a new report which focuses on islands solutions in conservation and sustainability globally. Check out this new publication here, fresh off the press! To learn more about these exciting programs, click here. To view photos of the event click here. Thank you for your ongoing support!

Webinar Reminder: 6 May 2014

http://ledsgp.org/home Subject: Tomorrow: LEDS GP Mainstreaming Low Carbon Pathways in the Transport Sector at the National and Local Levels: Case of the Philippines

Rescheduled: Mainstreaming Low Carbon Pathways in the Transport Sector at the National and Local Levels: Case of the Philippines

6 May 2014 8:00 AM EST

Check your local time. Reserve your seat now. The President of the Republic of the Philippines has emphasized mainstreaming transport sector low carbon paths at the national and local levels. Being a cross-sectoral issue, the need for convergence among relevant government agencies is important. The formulation of the National Environmentally Sustainable Transportation Strategy (NESTS) has been made possible through the leadership of the Department of Transportation and Communications with the cooperation and support of an inter-agency, multi-sectorial network of local experts of government agencies, NGOs, academia, and research institutions. The order is to transform the transport sector, to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels through non-motorized transport, mainstreaming of the EST at the local government level, and undertaking an extensive mass media, social marketing, and mobilization campaign. Likewise, it is critical that the network of multilateral international organizations and development partners provide assistance and increase awareness among local government units (LGUs), building the government and LGUs’ technical capacities. Similarly, the exchange of information and best practices across the country and regional grouping can help forward the agenda on low carbon transportation systems. It is essential that the mainstreaming of low carbon paths in the transportation sector be aligned vertically and horizontally across relevant sectors, within the country and across regions for greater impact. This webinar session will feature the following distinguished panelist:

  • Anneli Lontoc, Undersecretary, Department of Transportation and Communications, Senior Research/ Teaching Fellow, University of the Philippines – School of Urban and Regional Planning.

Film Festival – Project COBRA

Between the 16-19th September 2014, in Georgetown, Guyana
Dear Colleagues,
The COBRA Project (www.projectcobra.org) is a multidisciplinary project focused on promoting community owned solutions to emerging challenges related to sustainable development, climate change, biodiversity conservation and forest management. We are working with indigenous groups in South America, using a range of visual methods including participatory video and participatory photography.
Between the 16-19th September 2014, in Georgetown, Guyana, Project COBRA will be holding a participatory film festival under the theme of “Community-owned Solutions for Social-Ecological Challenges”.
This film festival will bring together indigenous and community groups, academic researchers, activists, policy makers, development workers and government officials from the Guiana Shield and other countries, to  collectively deliberate and debate practical actions for promoting indigenous community owned solutions for facing current and emerging social, economic and environmental challenges.
The film festival will create opportunities for cultural and knowledge exchange, and contribute to the promotion of indigenous audiovisual communication through diffusion, reflection and creative engagement.
The festival will be an opportunity to discuss issues using filmed information that indigenous communities have produced themselves, rather than relying on information produced about them by non-indigenous people.
We invite submission of participatory videos and photos, produced by indigenous communities and organizations working with indigenous communities, that will be screened during the festival in order to support discussions.
More information, including how to submit an expression of interest, please visit our website at: http://projectcobra.org/indigenous-participatory-film-festival/
 We look forward to your participation!

For World Press Freedom Day – Saturday 3 May 2014 Absence of free media greatly compromises development – UN experts

GENEVA (3 May 2014) – On the occasion of World Press Freedom Day, a group of 31 specialists* from the largest body of independent experts in the United Nations Human Rights system called on all Governments to promote and protect the rights to freedom of expression and information, freedom of peaceful assembly, and freedom of association and public participation, essential for the full realization of all human rights for all and for the achievement of related development goals: “States must develop more inclusive political processes and allow the media to play a key role in guaranteeing the right of everyone, including those vulnerable to exclusion and discrimination, to freely access information and engage in meaningful development related discourse.   Individuals and communities, including marginalized ones, must be empowered to claim their rights. Democratic, transparent and participatory decision-making related to sustainable development improves effective delivery of public services, reduces corruption and increases good governance at all levels.   We are deeply concerned at the ongoing attacks on journalists and human rights defenders involved in demanding good governance and governmental accountability, fighting corruption and protecting the human rights of those living in poverty.  Without free media to advocate for and monitor the implementation of the new set of post-2015 targets, there can be no real development for all marginalized, vulnerable or discriminated against. Not now, not ever.” (*) Read the open letter by the independent human rights experts: http://www.ohchr.org/EN/NewsEvents/Pages/DisplayNews.aspx?NewsID=14558&LangID=E ENDS The United Nations human rights experts are part of what it is known as the Special Procedures of the Human Rights Council. Special Procedures, the largest body of independent experts in the UN Human Rights, is the general name of the independent fact-finding and monitoring mechanisms of the Human Rights Council that address either specific country situations or thematic issues in all parts of the world. They are charged by the Human Rights Council to monitor, report and advise on human rights issues. Currently, there are 37 thematic mandates and 14 mandates related to countries and territories, with 72 mandate holders. In March 2014, three new mandates were added. Special Procedures experts work on a voluntary basis; they are not UN staff and do not receive a salary for their work. They are independent from any government or organization and serve in their individual capacity. Learn more: http://www.ohchr.org/EN/HRBodies/SP/Pages/Welcomepage.aspx ——

2014 World Press Freedom Day: Free media reinforces the post-2015 goals

On the occasion of the 2014 World Press Freedom Day, UN experts* underscored the freedom of the press. They also addressed the lack in the promotion and protection of the rights to freedom of expression and information, freedom of peaceful assembly, freedom of association and public participation in some countries.

Reiterating the Vienna Declaration and that all human rights are universal, indivisible, and interdependent, the experts underlined the fact that the rights to freedom of expression and information, freedom of peaceful assembly, freedom of association, and public participation are essential for achieving the realization of all human rights for all, and related development goals. Decision-making, including that related to sustainable development, must be democratic, transparent and participatory.

The UN experts expressed concern at the many attacks on journalists and human rights defenders, including members of civil society organisations, and those demanding good governance and governmental accountability.

They also pointed to the fact that the full recognition ofthe rights to freedom of expression and information, freedom of peaceful assembly, freedom of association, and public participation contributes to the full achievement of the millennium development goals.

The experts recalled the need to work towards more inclusive political processes, genuine participation by all in all countries, ensuring freedom of the media to play its role, and guaranteeing the right of the public to have access to information. They also emphasized the importance of the environmental impact assessments .

The experts highlighted the Report of the High-Level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, which recommended adoption of a governance goal, including the protection of access to information, free media and protection of civic space. They also noted the discussions in the GA Open Working Group and the recognition in Focus Area 19 of the need for rule of law and capable institutions. They also recalled earlier contributions of special procedures to the Post-2015 Development Agenda .

On the occasion of the 2014 World Press Freedom Day, the UN independent experts called upon all States to:

Rights to freedom of expression and information

  • Ensure that all undue restrictions to the free flow of information and discourse relating to the realisation of development issues are eliminated, in particular, measures such as censorship, banning, blocking, and other obstruction to the dissemination of related information by the media, including through new information technologies;
  • Refrain from influencing the content and means of dissemination of development-related information by the media through financial and other means;
  • Publish comprehensive, reliable, accurate and accessible information related to the development agenda, including information necessary for individuals to exercise their rights; and information about available services and supplies, budgets, expenditures, revenues or aid policies;
  • Ensure that all obstacles preventing people from accessing information on development matters are removed and access to information is facilitated by simple and effective processes;
  • Ensure that information and data related to development issues are collected on a regular basis, that they are maintained in an organised and systematic manner and are disaggregated to address particular needs of groups who are marginalised, vulnerable or discriminated against;
  • Ensure that legal, regulatory and public policy frameworks for the media, including digital technologies, guarantee their independence, diversity and pluralism, and thus, allow for independent investigation and reporting on issues relating to development and poverty alleviation;
  • Adopt comprehensive national laws, regulations and policies on the rights to freedom of expression and information in accordance with international and regional norms and standards.  States should also ensure that public authorities at all levels, and private bodies carrying public functions, proactively inform the population about development-related issues, particularly those related to education, environment, health, water and sanitation, and poverty reduction;

Rights to freedom of association and peaceful assembly

  • Refrain from preventing individuals and groups from expressing dissenting views regarding development issues and facilitate access of civil society organisations – registered and unregistered – to financial and other resources, including from foreign or international sources, without prior authorisation or other undue impediments;
  • Remove other undue restrictions on civil society organisations, so that they can effectively take part in democratic process, and support their efforts to full realisation of sustainable development;
  • Ensure that a safe and enabling environment is created for individuals and groups so they can exercise their right to assemble peacefully and associate freely to voice their opinions, concerns and demands relating to development issues, individually and collectively, in conformity with international human rights obligations and standards;

Right to public participation

  • Guarantee the active, free and meaningful participation of individuals, communities and groups representing them in development decision-making processes – at international, national, regional and local levels;
  • Establish development indicators and benchmarks and ensure that they are used in monitoring  States’ progress towards the full realisation of the development agenda;
  • Ensure that consultation processes are not merely superficial or limited to overall information sharing, but are conducted in good faith and provide real and meaningful opportunities to freely and actively influence decisions;
  • Ensure that human rights, social, cultural and environmental strategic and impact assessments relating to all development industries and sectors are conducted by independent and technically competent entities and are produced in a manner that is understandable to affected individuals and communities.  Adequate safeguards and mechanisms of control over such assessments should be put in place.
  • Make sure that human rights, social, cultural and environmental strategic and impact assessments give due consideration to the concerns of all those affected and to holders of traditional knowledge and practices
  • Ensure that all related information, including any impact assessments, is communicated in an efficient manner, at the start of the decision-making and throughout the process at an appropriate time, through multiple channels and using culturally appropriate procedures;
  • Ensure that meetings are organized in the locality of those affected and in locations that can be easily accessed, two-way translations for local languages are provided and jargon or highly technical terms are avoided and appeal mechanisms are available for affected communities if they believe that their opinions were not fairly considered;
  • Undertake special efforts for genuine participation of individuals and groups who are vulnerable, marginalized, disadvantaged and discriminated against, in particular women, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex persons, indigenous people, members of minority groups, youth, persons with disabilities refugees and internally displaced people, non-nationals, including asylum seekers and migrant workers, in the decision-making processes.

Conducive environment

  • Take all necessary measures to ensure that all sectors of society – including women and other groups most at risk – are able to exercise their rights to freedom of expression and information, freedom of peaceful assembly, freedom of association, and public participation without discrimination.
  • Ensure a safe and enabling environment, in law and practice, for human rights defenders, including civil society organizations, which guarantees their independence and their right to carry out their work without fear of harassment, intimidation, stigmatization, reprisals, criminalisation or violence of any sort.

The experts concluded by emphasizing the fact that media organisations should recognise the role they can play in framing issues of public importance and helping to satisfy the public’s need for information in development issues, draw attention to and expose any violations of human rights in this area and provide platforms for inclusive public debate about related issues, reflecting a diversity of views and perspectives.

New post on ReliefWeb blog – 06/05/2014

ReliefWeb New article on the ReliefWeb blog:

Visualizing humanitarian information through interactive maps

Read the article on ReliefWeb: http://reliefweb.int/blogpost/visualizing-humanitarian-information-through-interactive-maps Producing rapidly changing and complex information is challenging at the best of times. Combine this with a sudden onset emergency, time constraints, a myriad of stakeholders with different information needs, and ensuring that information is in an easy-to-understand format, the task becomes even more difficult. So, in order to address some of these challenges, OCHA’s Visual Information Unit (VIU), with technical support of ReliefWeb, has further developed the interactive map Beta released in December 2012, to now also include humanitarian information, situation timelines and improved maps. This pilot version of the interactive timeline map has used data collected during Typhoon Haiyan to simulate how multiple humanitarian data and information could be visually displayed in one place. Typhoon Haiyan, which hit the Philippines on 8 November 2013, affected over 500 municipalities across nine regions and more than 15 million people. During the humanitarian response local authorities collected daily toll data at the municipality level. This helped humanitarian responders track the extent of the devastation. However publishing this information and comparing the changes over time proved to be a challenging task.
This interactive timeline map is designed to visualize this large amount of data by incorporating maps, timelines and information in one webpage.
The tool offers:
  1. Visualization of multiple pieces of information in a single location. This example includes information on affected people, displaced people and damaged houses.
  2. You can select dates and to see how the data changes over time.
  3. A timeline that provides an overview of key events.
  4. Real-time funding data visualization, fed via OCHA’s Financial Tracking System (FTS) API.
  5. An additional visualization of key data by region in bar charts.

The map is designed to display information you collect and input, making it ideal for rapidly developing humanitarian situations. It is connected to an online spreadsheet or database and simple to update, edit or add new categories of information. As more information becomes available, you can easily populate data which is then reflected on the map. The code for this project is open source and available via github so that any advanced developer can use/edit/revamp it for their purpose. With further development and your feedback, we hope to make this a downloadable tool can be easily embedded into any website. As mentioned, this is the pilot version of this interactive timeline map. The data and information used is for development and testing purposes. To make this pilot become a tool for humanitarians, we are seeking your feedback on how you would apply this tool and how to improve its functionality. If you have any suggestions or ideas for improvement, please let us know by either leaving a comment below or email us at feedback@reliefweb.int Check out the new interactive timeline map For questions about this list, please contact: feedback@reliefweb.int —————————————————————————————————-   http://www.onlinevolunteering.org/en/org/resources/newsletter_august_2012.html

Jack Brewer Foundation at Millennium Development Goals Awards Millennium Development Goals Awards event was held at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. http://iclips.net/widgets/mdg/mdg_awards.html http://mdgawards.org/jack-brewer.html HHSYC, MDG Awards Committee & Professional Athletes Announce Launch of MDG Awards at the Waldorf=Astoria, NYC on September 19th by Palmer Special Events, Inc. on Saturday, July 3, 2010 at 8:42am · …FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE… Contact: Vanessa Edwards-El, Palmer Special Events, Inc. at 718-909-2686 or Randy Fisher, HHSYC at 212-316-7639 Hip-Hop Summit Youth Council, the Millennium Development Goals Awards Committee, NY Jets’ David Clowney, New England Patriot Leigh Bodden, Chicago Bear Israel Idonije, Former NY Giant Barrett Green, NY Red Bull Seth Stammler, the Jack Brewer Foundation, Ambassador Francis Lorenzo, Michael Jacobson and Chris Wangro announce the launch of the Millennium Development Goals Awards on September 19, 2010 at the Waldorf=Astoria Hotel. Event will recognize citizens for their outstanding work to help the United Nations achieve the MDGs by 2015. HHSYC will use the Awards to garner the support of celebrities, youth, young adults and elected officials to promote their Decade of Service, Membership Drive, Fundraising Campaign and bring Global Attention to the importance of the MDGs. NEW YORK, NY – June 30, 2010 – The Hip-Hop Summit Youth Council (HHSYC) joined the United Nations Millennium Development Goals Awards Committee, the Jack Brewer Foundation, NY Jets’ David Clowney, New England Patriot Leigh Bodden, Chicago Bear Israel Idonije, Former NY Giant Barrett Green, NY Red Bull Seth Stammler, Ambassador Francis Lorenzo and a host of other prominent organizations, attended a press conference and banquet to announce the 2nd annual MDG Awards taking place on September 19, 2010 at the world famous Waldorf=Astoria Hotel. The high profile event, which is touted as the “Grammy’s” of the social service, humanitarian and philanthropic community, recognizes the great work of citizens and governments who have made outstanding contributions that will help the United Nations achieve the MDGs by 2015. The awards will also provide a platform to galvanize a groundswell of support for the MDGs by youths, young adults, the private sector, elected officials, celebrities, professional athletes, U.N. agencies, NGOs, foundations, clergy and community groups. The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), adopted by 189 countries in the year 2000, are eight specific goals which commit rich and poor countries to: eradicate extreme poverty and hunger; ensure all boys and girls complete primary school; promote gender equality; improve the health of mothers and children; reverse the spread of HIV/AIDS; protect the environment; and create a global partnership for development, by ensuring rich countries give more and better aid, debt relief and trade opportunities to poorer countries. The theme for this year’s ceremony is ‘The MDGs: The Global Heartbeat’. The event will encourage distinguished guests, “unsung heroes” and celebrity speakers alike to voice their own personal commitment towards supporting the MDGs, while calling on the U.N. and world leaders to deliver on their promise. Following the ‘Keeping the Promise’ theme advocated in the U.N. Secretary-General’s MDG progress report, the awards will be held on the eve of the MDG Summit at U.N. Headquarters to produce an agreed upon action agenda for the next five years. We are now two thirds into the final countdown and much needs to be done by the people to hold their governments accountable to their commitments to make this a better world. The MDG Awards and the Summit will both provide an opportunity to mobilize all sectors of society in a call to action for the final five year countdown. Nominations will be made in consultation with a range of experts from within and outside the U.N. system’s final selection by an independent, international panel. Ambassador Francis Lorenzo stated “The Dominican Republic has worked very hard to create a model for any country to follow because we are serious about our commitment to meet the 2015 deadline. I see the MDG Awards as a unique vehicle to reward those that are making a difference and help citizens all over the world find creative ways to work with their government to make the MDGs a reality.” Michael Jacobson, Executive Director of the MDG Awards Committee said “These awards are an important tool to raise awareness about the MDGs, recognize citizens for their outstanding work, and garner support from celebrities, the private sector and world leaders to achieve the MDGs.” Chris Wangro, executive producer of the Millennium Development Goals Awards stated that “This year’s event will be better than the last because it is on the heels of the MDG Summit and will provide a solid platform for citizens and governments to achieve the MDGs. “I am excited about working with the HHSYC, the MDG Awards Committee and the United Nations to use artists, athletes and other notables to help achieve the MDGs. Through the power of celebrities and the media we have a real opportunity to meet the 2015 deadline.” ended Jack Brewer, Chairman and Founder, Jack Brewer Foundation. The U.N. Secretary-General and the General Assembly will conduct an MDG Summit from September 20-22 to accelerate progress towards all the MDGs by 2015, taking into account the progress made towards the internationally agreed development goals. The summit is expected to undertake a comprehensive review of successes, best practices, lessons learned, obstacles, gaps, challenges and opportunities “leading to concrete strategies for action”. The President of the General Assembly has appointed two ‘Co-facilitators’ to lead the inter-governmental negotiating process. They will likely wait until after the U.N. Secretary-General releases his report on the MDGs in March to begin. The Co-facilitators are the U.N. Ambassadors of Senegal and Denmark in New York. “Now the real work begins to bring global awareness to the MDGs. On July 1, 2010, we will began to countdown a Decade of Service to youths and young adults in the U.S. and abroad. In an effort to help the U.N. achieve the MDGs over the next 12 months, we will launch several initiatives which include a pictorial book, documentary and feature film on the History of Hip-Hop; a compilation CD featuring Hip-Hop artists from all over the world; and a Membership and Building Fund Drive to raise 5 million dollars for a new youth center and Headquarters in Harlem. It is my hope that we can use the MDG Awards and other activities to help the less fortunate and make this a better world ?because as adults, parents and political leaders, we have failed our children. I want to thank Mike Jacobson, Heidi Walters and Ambassador Lorenzo for appointing me to the committee and bringing me on board to be a part of this great worthwhile project.” stated Charles Fisher, Founder & Chairman of the HHSYC. DJ Louis, founder of STARFEST, states “We are ready to produce events, work with the United Nations and our celebrity supporters to bring global awareness to the mission, timeline and significance of the MDGs.” “I’m excited about my foundation working with the HHSYC to promote literacy, education and the MDGs. I am fully committed to take on the challenge of ending poverty and using creative projects to improve the quality of education in the U.S. and developing countries.” ended David Clowney, Chairman of the David Clowney Foundation and wide receiver for the NY Jets. “Through the game of football I have been blessed, so I have an obligation to use my time and resources to help the U.N. achieve the MDGs so that the disadvantaged can have a better life. For me, it’s not just about fame and fortune, but also doing what I can to ensure that we meet the MDG goals by 2015.” ended Israel Idonije, Chairman of the Israel Idonije Foundation and defensive tackle for the Chicago Bears. “Working with the Jack Brewer Foundation, the HHSYC and the U.N. to provide food, clothing, shelter and education to the poor, while spreading the word about the MDGs is just as sweet as scoring a touchdown or going to the Super Bowl.” ended Leigh Bodden, Chairman of the Leigh Bodden Foundation and defensive back for the New England Patriots. Former NY Giant Barrett Green stated “by working with the Jack Brewer Foundation I have found out about the United Nations Millennium Develop Goals and we will do all I can to help this world become a better place. I will also work to bring more professional athletes to the table for this monumental task.” “I am prepared to lead the charge to help the U.N. achieve the MDGs so that poor people and developing countries have the basic resources to live a healthy productive life” ended Seth Stammler of the NY Red Bulls. “As we approach a Decade of Service, I’m excited about the many projects that we will launch to help the U.N. achieve the MDGs, including a global membership drive for 5 million new members over the next 12 months. Soliciting the services of young citizens to work with the United Nations, Celebrities, Government Leaders, the Private Sector and Community Groups to hold governments accountable to their MDG commitment is a task that I can’t wait to perform.” ended Randy Fisher, Executive Director, HHSYC.

                            QPTV QUEENS NEW YORK PUPBLIC ACCES TV  Hélène H. Oord,  Rosline Nievens & Cliff Jacobs joins hosts QPTV re-cable Casts QUEENS, New York Update: Hélène H. Oord Special guest invited by: A Town Hall Meeting Part 1: First Amendment Under Fire Date: 12/21/2010 An assortment of opinionated community members had the opportunity to discuss various issues of importance concerning our First Amendment rights. The lively panel featured Ibrahim Martin Lyons, Imam; Guy B. Palumbo, Lt. Colonel (Ret.) U.S Army; William “Bill” Scott, attorney; and Rubin Roberson, retired corrections officer. In this program, discussion is focused on whether an Islamic cultural center should be built two blocks from Ground Zero. During this heated yet friendly debate, the main question on everyone’s mind is: Should the Islamic community be allowed to build a cultural center near Ground Zero or should it be more sensitive to the families of the victims of 9/11? Produced and made possible by Daniel Leone, Clifford Jacobs, Roslyn Nieves, Robert Strahle, and the entire QPTV staff.

Be sure to tune in for this lively and insightful debate. Images  More info please visit: http://www.qptv.org/taxonomy/term/34 http://www.qptv.org/category/tags/media-release?page=1
