Politics, Economics, and Formal Education

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On November 1st and article appeared in the New York Times illustrating the impact of national politics and political relations, economics, defining a country’s formal education system.  The article by Jo Becker and Steven Lee Myers “Putin’s Friend Profits in Purge of Schoolbooks” raises serious questions about priorities and raises awareness that schooling is very much integrated into the political and economic priorities of a nation.

We need to hear more from education- finance – political experts in  the UN discussions on education, SDGs, MDGs and find ways to integrate rights, equity, CBDR, security, and public engagement.  To learn more

The UN CC:Learn Secretariat has launched two new Resouce Guides providing a tour of the best and most relevant resources, mostly drawn from within the UN System, on climate change & health and on climate change education.
The Resource Guide for Advanced Learning on Understanding the Climate Change and Health Interface, which was developed with technical advice of the World Health organization (WHO), has been developed for those interested in gaining a more advanced understanding of the linkages between climate change and health. 
The Resource Guide for Advanced Learning on Integrating Climate Change in Education at Primary and Secondary Level, which was developed with technical advice of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), provides resources relevant for learning about both formal and informal education on climate change at primary and secondary level.  
The guides are part of a series facilitating access to state-of-the-art materials relevant for climate change learning. Other two Resource Guides have been issued on the Fundamentals of Climate Change Scienceand on Predicting and Projecting Climate Change.

Open Up! Workshop on inclusive education in development and emergencies Don’t get lost in all the barriers, but look for opportunities in inclusive education. That’s one of the conclusions of last week’s workshop ‘Open Up!’ on inclusive education in development and emergency situations. About 40 representatives of NGOs gathered for the workshop to discuss dilemmas in inclusive education and to learn more about EU funding opportunities. Read more: the report of the meeting, the speech of Lars Bosselmann (CBM), and a short guide to links and resources on inclusive education

The United Nations Foundation and other groups are calling for for the full financing of education for the largest population of Syrian refugees in Lebanon through a UN plan endorsed by the government of Lebanon and the secretary-general of the UN by funding the global humanitarian appeal RRP 6. By funding this plan, we will show it is possible to get children into school during an emergency and continue with the full-scale regional and global responses for education in emergencies because Education Cannot Wait.

Climate change and disaster risk reduction: call for abstracts of input papers for the UNISDR Global Assessment Report 2015 Dear colleagues​,

Dear All,

Every two years the Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR) provides a global assessment of disaster risk reduction and a comprehensive review and analysis of the natural hazards affecting humanity. In previous years the GAR contributed to achieving the Hyogo Framework of Action (HFA) by monitoring risk patterns and trends as well as progress in disaster risk reduction, and by providing strategic policy guidance to countries and the international community.
The GAR scheduled for 2015 will serve a different purpose: to inform the development of the successor to the HFA (HFA+), to be adopted at the next World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Japan in March 2015. The 2015 GAR will be based on, among other things, a series of thematic reviews roughly organised along the HFA core indicators. Sixteen thematic research areas were thus defined and work on these areas is in progress; ‘climate change adaptation and mitigation’ was recently added as a 17th thematic research area.
The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) has invited the Stockholm Environment Institute to coordinate the preparation of a background paper on climate change adaptation and mitigation in the context of the HFA or the HFA+. The background paper will explore the following issues:
- Climate change as a driver of disaster risk and the contribution of mitigation to disaster risk reduction
- Shared factors promoting or hindering adaptation, mitigation and disaster risk reduction
- Avoiding and addressing loss and damage associated with climate change impacts
Collectively these three issues should capture the diversity of knowledge and experience on how climate change affects disaster risk, and how adaptation and mitigation could contribute, and have contributed, to disaster risk reduction and vice versa.
An important source of information for the background paper will be a series of input papers addressing in detail specific aspects of the aforementioned three issues. All interested experts are invited to submit abstracts of proposed input papers. More information can be found in a recent concept paper, which also presents a number of sample topics to inspire the preparation of input papers. The concept paper is available athttp://www.preventionweb.net/english/professional/networks/private/hfa-thematic-review/ (scroll all the way down to Research Area 17).
Abstracts of no more than 300 words need to be submitted by Wednesday 22 January at the latest, using the submission form available on the same website. Authors of selected abstracts will be notified by Friday 24 January 2014 and invited to prepare their input papers by Friday 21 February 2014.
We regret that no financial support is available for the preparation of input papers, but UNISDR is considering opportunities to publish the input papers, possibly collated as a special journal issue, along with the background paper and the GAR.
With best wishes,
Richard Klein

Dear All,
This past week was the Global Campaign for Education’s (GCE) Global Action Week, which saw millions of people and about 100 countries taking part in activities worldwide to support this year’s campaign, Every Child Needs a Teacher.
 
From 21-27 April 2013, activities ranging from online events, to public engagement events, to policy meetings took place to address the fact that 1.7 million new teachers are needed globally to achieve universal primary education and 5.1 million new teachers are needed by 2015 to educate all primary school-aged children and account for teachers who retire or leave the profession. http://globaleducationfirst.org/2217.htm
UNESCO signed an agreement with the Educate A Child (EAC) programme that was launched in November 2012 to support bringing quality primary education to millions of oul-of-school children.
The partnership, which is cofounded by the two organisations, is focused on supporting the Secretariat of the Global Education First Initiative, (GEFI), launched by the UN Secretary-General last September.  It will support the Initiative in a range of ways to facilitate coordination and coherent action among the GEFI partners.

    Risk management – Principles and guidelines

 

http://www.theirm.org/publications/documents/rm_standard_nl_15.11.04.pdf

 

http://www.theirm.org/publications/PUstandard.html

 

Risk management – Principles and guidelines   ISO 31000:2009 provides principles

and generic guidelines on risk management.

ISO 31000:2009 can be used by any public, private or community enterprise,

association, group or individual. Therefore, ISO 31000:2009 is not specific to any

industry or sector. ISO 31000:2009 can be applied throughout the life of an

organization, and to a wide range of activities, including strategies and decisions,

operations, processes, functions, projects, products, services and assets.

ISO 31000:2009 can be applied to any type of risk, whatever its nature, whether

having positive or negative consequences.

Although ISO 31000:2009 provides generic guidelines, it is not intended to promote

uniformity of risk management across organizations. The design and plementation

of risk management plans and frameworks will need to take into account the varying

needs of a specific organization, its particular objectives, context, structure,

operations, processes, functions, projects, products, services, or assets and specific

practices employed.  It is intended that ISO 31000:2009 be utilized to harmonize

risk management processes in  existing and future standards. It provides a common

approach in support of standards dealing with specific risks and/or sectors, and

does not replace those standards.  ISO 31000:2009 is not intended for the purpose

of certification.
