Ban Kimoon hails new UNbacked urban training centre in Republic of Korea

“With this new Centre, Gangwon Province and UN-HABITAT (UN Human Settlements Programme) are joining forces in the cause of sustainable urban development,” Mr. Ban said in a video message for the International Urban Training Centre in Gangwon Province. Pointing to the “increasingly visible” impacts of climate change, he said, “Your mission has never been more important.” Mr. Ban pointed out that while cities are engines of economic growth and cultural innovation, “they also contribute significantly to environmental degradation, through their enormous needs for energy, water and land.” He stressed that in this light, cities must foster better transport systems, better building technologies, better energy use and better urban planning. “The United Nations family is fully committed to this cause — especially through the work of UN-HABITAT and the United Nations Environment Programme,” he said. “This Centre has a key role to play, by training policymakers, municipal workers, the private sector and civil society.” 4 May 2007As the damage from climate change grows increasingly apparent, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has praised a new centre in the Republic of Korea working to address the environmental impact of large cities. read more

UN project helps West African farmers cut pesticide use boost incomes

Around 100,000 farmers in Benin, Burkina Faso, Mali and Senegal are participating in the community-driven training programme, which promotes good agricultural practices through small groups called Farmer Field Schools.The project includes issues such as soil improvement and alternatives to chemical pesticides, as well as marketing and food safety, according to a news release by the Rome-based FAO.“Trends in agriculture over the past decades in West Africa have seen an increasing use of highly toxic pesticides in higher-value, frequently irrigated crops. There is a general lack of knowledge in the region on the negative impacts of pesticides on the production, economy and health of communities and the environment,” said FAO Senior Technical Officer William Settle.Mr. Settle noted that simple experiments in the field, as practiced by the Farmer Field Schools, have given smallholder farmers the means to produce in a more environmentally-friendly way, to substantially increase yields and earn a better income.Typically, a group of about 25 farmers coordinated by a trainer prepares two training plots in their village, one using local conventional farming methods and another plot using best practices appropriate to the crop and location. They then observe and compare results from the two plots.FAO noted that if resources become available, up to 500,000 farmers could be trained in the next five years at an estimated cost of around $30-40 million. 20 December 2010A project executed by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in West Africa has succeeded in slashing the use of toxic pesticides, increasing yields and incomes, and diversifying farming systems. read more

Côte dIvoire UN disarmament operation continues near Abidjan

1 February 2012A United Nations voluntary disarmament operation began today in a suburb north of the Ivorian city of Abidjan, aiming to collect illegal weapons still in circulation among the civilian population. The operation, conducted by the UN Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI) and national authorities, is part of a wider national campaign which began in June and that targets various regions of the country, with last month’s having been held in the town of Attécoubé.“This operation will gradually increase in scale and allow us to recover weapons in various municipalities, both in Abidjan and elsewhere,” said UNOCI’s Deputy Director of the Division of Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration, Ndiaga Diagne.“Every gun that is recovered is a plus, a success,” he said, adding that since its beginning some 1,000 weapons have been collected.The operation in Abobo is conducted in collaboration with the Government, Ivorian police and the National Commission to Fight Against the Proliferation of Small Arms and Light Weapons. For the Commission’s Executive Secretary, Anziani Kouadja, collaborating with UNOCI allows the population to benefit from accompanying measures such as training and support for income-generating activities.Mr. Kouadja stressed that for the operation to be successful, rapid implementation of the accompanying training measures must follow. “I appeal to UNOCI so that those who have already laid down their arms can quickly benefit from these measures so that it may encourage others to do the same,” he said, adding that the campaign will also continue throughout Côte d’Ivoire.Cote read more

Militia members handed over to Côte dIvoire authorities by UN mission

The authorities in Guiglo would take the appropriate judicial measures, Gen. Abdoulaye Fall, Force Commander of the UN Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI), told a news conference in the largest city of the West African country, Abidjan, on his return from an assessment trip to the area where the clashes took place, Logouale.UNOCI arrested 87 assailants, of whom two were minors and were turned over to the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) at the UN camp at Man.With tensions in the country’s west remaining high, the UN refugee agency limited staff movements in northern and western Côte d’Ivoire and suspended the registration of Liberian refugees in four border districts where 10,000 refugees are living.Census-taking was continuing at Nicla refugee camp in the west, but would be delayed in Ben-Houyen, Zouan-Hounien, Blolequin and Toulepleu districts, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said in Abidjan.The census registration started last month and aims to update refugee information and give the refugees identification documents which could prevent them from being mistaken for parties to the conflict, the agency said.If the situation in the west deteriorated, 17,000 Liberian refugees would be at risk, UNHCR said, harking back to 2003 when the Liberians had to be evacuated to Abidjan to escape fierce fighting in the west.The Liberian refugees in Côte d’Ivoire currently number 70,000.Meanwhile, in an exchange of letters the Security Council agreed with Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s appointment of Swedish diplomat Pierre Schori as his new Special Representative (SRSG) for the country. He replaces Albert Tévoédjrè, who stepped down at the end of January.In other news, Deputy Secretary-General Louise Fréchette was expected to arrive in Abidjan tomorrow for a four-day visit during which she would stress to the civilian and military leadership of UNOCI the world body’s zero-tolerance policy on sexual exploitation and abuse by peacekeepers. read more

Découverte dune nouvelle espèce de calmar dans locéan Indien

first_imgDécouverte d’une nouvelle espèce de calmar dans l’océan IndienDécouverts par les scientifiques au cours d’une croisière de recherche dans le sud de l’océan Indien, les calmars de ce genre ont des organes producteurs de lumière qui servent à attirer leurs proies. Le calmar de 70 centimètres de long appartient à la famille des chiroteuthis. Il a été découvert au cours de l’analyse de 7.000 échantillons recueillis l’an dernier pendant la croisière “Seamounts” dirigée par l’Union internationale pour la conservation de la nature (UICN).Le projet a débuté il y a un an quand des experts maritimes ont embarqué pour une expédition de six semaines sur l’océan Indien. Le but de la croisière était de lever le mystère sur les montagnes sous-marines (“seamount”) et d’aider à améliorer la conservation et la gestion des ressources marines dans cette zone.“Voilà maintenant 10 jours que 21 scientifiques armés de microscopes travaillent sur une succession de jarres contenant des poissons, des calmars, des zooplanctons et beaucoup d’autres créatures intéressantes”, a assuré Alex Rogers du département de zoologie de l’Université d’Oxford. “De nombreux spécimens se ressemblent et nous devons utiliser des caractéristiques morphologiques élaborées comme l’orientation des muscles et la longueur des intestins pour les différencier”, a-t-il ajouté.Plus de 70 espèces de calmars ont été identifiées durant la croisière, ce qui représente plus de 20% de la biodiversité mondiale de ces animaux marins.

Go back to the enewsletter Regent Sevens Seas Crui

first_imgGo back to the enewsletterRegent Sevens Seas Cruises last weekend welcomed select trade partners, VIPs and media aboard Seven Seas Mariner during her turnaround at Sydney’s White Bay Cruise Terminal on Sunday 20 January 2019.Seven Seas Mariner was in port for the day following her inaugural circumnavigation of Australia and ahead of her deployment to Asia for the next 3–4 months, where she will operate intensive itineraries through Southeast Asia and Japan.The ultra-luxury Mariner is in resplendent condition, having undergone an extensive bow-to-stern refurbishment in April 2018 as part of a US$125 million fleet-wide enhancement program to bring the company’s entire fleet in line with Seven Seas Explorer, which launched in 2016.“Mariner was really a game changer when it launched because it was the first all-suite, all-verandah ship. Previously there had been verandah ships, but they had a mix of windows and verandahs. This is the first one that was only verandah and only suite,” said Steve Odell, SVP and MD, Asia Pacific, for Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, parent company of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.“Our aim of the refit was to bring the ship into the next generation of Regent, which was sent in stone with the launch of Explorer. So much of what you see on Mariner is the design of Explorer.”Seven Seas Mariner | Penthouse SuiteOdell continued: “Explorer was, I think, a game changer in luxury. Very lavish, very opulent, beautiful chandeliers, tonnes of marble. But a game changer in other ways too, in terms of dining and dining choices. We really have brought a new generation of ship.”Seven Seas Explorer is bound to arrive in Australia in 2020, where she will operate for three to four months.“We’ll be able to show this market exactly what luxury means,” Odell boasted.Luxury Regent style is a little bit different from everyone else. We are a totally all-inclusive product: we don’t charge for going to specialty restaurants, we don’t charge for shore excursions. There are free unlimited shore excursions in every port of call you go to.Steve Odell, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings SVP and MD, Asia Pacific“Our definition of luxury is a totally inclusive experience. One where the only things you pay for are a spa, perhaps if you like fine wines, and the casino of course. But we don’t have hidden extras here,” he said.Seven Seas Mariner | Compass Rose restaurantNot content with having already delivered what is billed as “The World’s Most Luxurious Cruise Ship”, Regent is already forward planning beyond Explorer. Seven Seas Splendor is scheduled for delivery in February 2020 and will be an exact model of Seven Seas Explorer. Further, a third ship in the Explorer series was announced earlier this month, for delivery in 2023.“We’ll be adding another 1,500 beds to the Regent fleet, bringing the fleet to six ships by 2023. If you are going to lead, you have to lead with expansion as well, so we are really excited about what that means. “This market has moved into third place in ranking order of Regent’s sales, and I am very confident that we can reach number two, because Aussies have a real taste for this kind of luxury experience,” Odell concluded.Seven Seas Mariner | Pool DeckView exclusive images from aboard Seven Seas Mariner on LATTE‘s Facebook page: click here.Lead image: Onboard Seven Seas Mariner: Steve Odell, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings SVP and MD Asia-Pacific with Lisa Pile, Regent Sevens Seas Cruises VP Sales Australia and New ZealandGo back to the enewsletterlast_img read more

begin to emergein Taiwan and Hong Konghealth officials around the world are preparing for a potentially perfect storm for a massive flu outbreak On Thursday billions of Chinese will be on the move to celebrate the Lunar New Year creating ripe conditions for the spread of the influenza virus from those already infected And many of those celebrations will include chickens the primary carriers of H7N9 In addition with the Winter Olympics one of the worlds largest sporting events just two weeks away the virus could find the ideal conditions for breaking out And that means the next plane could bring a pandemic to the US or anywhere else around the world "The bottom line is the health security of the US is only as strong as the health security of every country around the world" says Dr Thomas Frieden director of the US Centers for Disease Control "We are all connected by the food we eat the water the drink and the air we breathe" MORE: Many Americans Are Skipping the Flu Shot So far the World Health Organization reports that 246 people mostly in China have been infected with H7N9 since the virus was first identified last year and nearly a quarter of them have died As the first cases outside of the China emerged Hong Kong officials ordered the culling of 20000 chickens from its primary poultry market after one bird tested positive for H7N9 and banned live poultry imports for three weeks from the mainland In the meantime the Chinese government is shutting down live poultry sales in its eastern provinces after a spike in cases in recent weeks Because H7N9 does not make birds sick its nearly impossible to distinguish infected poultry from healthy animals so officials arent taking any chances Shanghai is closing its live poultry markets for three months beginning in February What concerns health experts is that H7N9 meets two of the three conditions for becoming a pandemicit is widespread among birds and it can pass from birds to people So far it does not appear to transmit easily from person to person but if it did says Frieden "that would be a big problem The likelihood of having a pandemic would be much much higher" MORE: Should You Be Chicken About the New Chicken Flu What could push the virus to move from person to person One worrying possibilityas H7N9 circulates among birds it could recombine with other influenza strains and find a way to infect humans more efficiently by jumping from host to host Its also possible that the H7N9 infecting people could recombine with other strains currently circulating such as H1N1 or even H5N1 another bird flu and become more virulent as well Vietnam confirmed that a 52-year old man died this week of H5N1 If H7N9 were to become a pandemic there is a vaccine that researchers have developed but Frieden says its not very effective and may require more than one dose which could complicate distribution if there were an urgent need to immunize the population But other measures for containing outbreaks that have proven effective in the past including reducing the contact between people and infected animals implementing social distancing strategies to prevent rapid spread of the virus and dispensing medications to treat the severely ill could help to contain an outbreak "Flu reminds us that we are all connected by the air we breathe" says Frieden "There is no way for us to know if a pandemic will happen tomorrow or 10 years from now or never But what we can do is be even better prepared than we have in the past if it happens" Contact us at editors@timecom the longer-term weaknesses that make
