Dar es Salaam, Tanzania Agosti 28 WAKATI maadhimisho ya miaka 70 tangu kuanzishwa kwa Umoja wa Mataifa (UN) yanakaribia, Mashirika ya Umoja wa Mataifa nchini Tanzania yamekuwa yakiendelea na shughuli mbalimbali za utunzaji mazingira ambazo ni sehemu ya maadhimisho hayo.

Baada ya kufanya shughuli za upandaji miti katika miteremko ya mlima Kilimanjaro wiki iliyopita, leo wafanyakazi wa Mashirika hayo ya Umoja wa Mataifa wakisaidiana na wadau wengine na viongozi wa serikali wamefanya shughuli za usafi katika soko la Temeke.

“ Nachukua nafasi hii kupongeza watu wa Umoja wa Mataifa nchini Tanzania kwa kufanya shughuli mbalimbali kuelekea maadhimisho ya miaka 70 kwa kupanda miti 2,070 kwenye miteremko ya Mlima Kilimanjaro na hili tendo la leo la usafi kama mwendelezo wa kaulimbiu inayohimiza utunzaji wa mazingira ya“ Sayari moja, watu bilioni 7: Ulinzi wa mazingira ni wajibu wetu,” alisema.

Akisisitiza umuhimu wa kutunza mazingira na usafi, mheshimiwa Sophia alisema kwamba wajibu wa kutunza mazingira ni wa kila mtu.

“Kutunza mazingira si wajibu wa mtu mmoja. Ni wajibu wako kama ilivyo kwa jirani yako. Kunapokuwepo na watu wengi mara nyingi hutokea watu ambao hawajali wala kuona umuhimu wa kutunza mazingira, umuhimu wa kufanya haya.

“ Leo nawaomba wote mlioshiriki katika shughuli hii kuwa watu wa kuchunga mazingira katika maeneo yenu mnayofanyia kazi na majumbani kwenu.Hakikisheni mnafundishana na majirani zako katika suala hili na kuhakikisha kwamba kila mmoja anayekuzunguka anawajibika katika kutunza mazingira.”

Akisisitiza menejimenti ya mazingira Bw. Rodriguez, alizungumza kwamba mabadiliko ya tabia nchi na mazingira endelevu ndio ajenda kuu katika malengo endelevu ya maendeleo (SDGs).

“Mwaka huu jumuiya ya kimataifa itakubaliana kuhusu SDGs na kukamilishwa kwa malengo ya milenia (MDGs). Malengo ya milenia yamewezesha kupatikana kwa mabadiliko makubwa katika kukabiliana na umaskini, afya bora na kiwango kikubwa cha watu wanaojiunga na shule. Mataifa ya Umoja wa Mataifa kwa kupendezwa na mafanikio ya MDGs sasa wanataka kukubaliana kuhusu SDGs.

“ SDG itakuwa na vipengele 17 kikiwamo cha mabadiliko ya tabia nchi. Umoja wa Mataifa umechagua suala la mabadiliko ya tabia nchi kuwa ndio kipaumbele cha mwanzo kwani imebaini kwamba ni tishio kwa maendeleo endelevu. Hii inatokana na ukweli kuwa mabadiliko ya tabia nchi ni ya kweli na ni vyema kila mtu kuwajibika ili kuhakikisha mazingira yatu yanaendelea kuwa mazuri-tukianzia na mazingira yetu yanayotuzunguka” alisisitiza.

Bw. Rodriguez alizitaka jamii mbalimbali kutoa kiipaumbele katika kusafisha mazingira na usafi binafsi hasa kipindi hiki ambapo kumezuka ugonjwa wa kipindupindu kwa mikoa ya Dare s salaam na Morogoro.

“Usafi wa soko hili ni muhimu kwa ajili ya afya yako na uhai mrefu. Afya njema inatuwezesha kuendelea kufanya shughuli zetu mbalimbali za kuchangia ukuaji wa uchumi.Hebu angalia pembeni mwako imetuchukua saa chache kusafisha soko la Temeke na je hamuoni tofauti? Nawaomba wakazi wa Temeke na wafanyakazi wa soko hili kufanya shughuli hizi kila siku kwnai maisha yao, afya yao na uchumi unategemea soko hili.”

Pia aliwaalika wananchi wote katika sherehe za miaka 70 za Umoja wa Mataifa zitakazofanyika viwanja vya Mnazi Mmoja Oktoba 13 ili kushiriki kikamilifu katika kuadhimisha siku hiyo ya Umoja wa Mataifa.

Pia aliihimiza serikali kuendelea kuelimisha wananchi juu ya utunzaji wa mazingira na athari za mabadiliko ya tabia nchi.

Katika hafla hiyo ya kusafisha soko la Temeke, Umoja wa Mataifa na serikali ya Tanzania kwa pamoja walitoa vifaa vya kufanyia usafi vyenye thamani ya shilingi milioni 10.

Vifaa hivyo vilikabidhiwa kwa menejimenti ya soko la Temeke.
Angalizo kwa wahariri:

Syrian women risk their lives to protect children from polio

BY YASMINE SAKER ON 27 AUG 2015

More than 200 Syrian women risk their lives every day to save the lives of children by teaching fellow mothers about the importance of polio vaccinations in the most hard-to-reach areas, including in Dar’a in the far south of Syria, and Aleppo in the northern part of the war-torn country. UNICEF works with local partners to train these women on holding educational sessions and delivering key messages to parents of the young children.

The fight against polio in Syria is one that goes beyond administering vaccinations – it also requires changing misconceptions, especially in the most inaccessible areas.

“Being a parent myself, makes me want to protect all the children of the world,” said Suzan, a mother of three and a volunteer in Dar’a. “I learned about the importance of vaccinations from a health worker, so I vaccinated my children. But what if other mothers did not? Why should the children suffer?” she asked, explaining her drive to help out.

Suzan took advantage of any opportunity to reach out to mothers and give them critical information on protection from polio. While most of her work entailed holding informative sessions in shelters for the internally displaced people, she took innovative steps to spread her knowledge.

“During major water cuts, I’d approach women gathering to fill their cans with water and talk to them about vaccination and hygiene,” she said. “I can tell how responsive they were because they asked questions and interacted with me, especially young mothers.”

Working in hard to reach areas, the mission of these unsung heroes is dotted with challenges. According to the women, a deteriorating security situation, increased restrictions on the movement of women without a male companion and resistance against vaccinations in some parts of the country are among the obstacles they face on a daily basis.

“The violence in the area is making people hesitant to take their children to medical centres to get vaccinated,” said Jinan, a volunteer in Aleppo. Jinan noted another obstacle faced by the volunteers; the misperceptions of parents over the safety of the vaccinations.

“Parents were too scared to get their children vaccinated due to rumours,” she explained. “We clarified over and over again the credibility of the source and the importance of the polio vaccine until we convinced them.”

Despite challenges, these courageous and dedicated women are reaching out to as many mothers as possible – and getting them to vaccinate their children as a result.

“The most exciting thing is sharing your knowledge, then watching the mothers take actions based on it,” said Mariam, another community influencer in Aleppo. “One woman went and vaccinated her three children immediately after the information session”.

“Since the outbreak of polio in Syria in late 2013 that resulted in 36 recorded cases in the country, 15 massive vaccination campaigns supported by UNICEF have been rolled out combined with raising public awareness at the community level,” explained Hanaa Singer, UNICEF representative in Syria.

The campaigns reached more than 2.9 million children under the age of five across the country. Many were vaccinated several times. “We were able to reach some children living under siege or in areas hard-to-reach. However, we estimate that some 80,000 children continue to miss out on the life-saving vaccination,” warned Singer.

“Mothers listen and relate better to other mothers,” said Dr. Nidal Abou Rshaid, UNICEF immunization officer. “The volunteers’ role is extremely important because they are more capable of delivering the information.”

Journalists further targeted in South Sudan – UN rights experts warn violence against the media is on the rise

GENEVA (27 August 2015) –  “The frequency of attacks and violence committed against journalists and media workers in South Sudan is increasing, and has reached a critical level,” two United Nations human rights experts warned today.

The UN Special Rapporteurs on freedom of expression, David Kaye, and on extrajudicial executions, Christof Heyns, condemned the latest killing of a South Sudanese journalist, the seventh so far this year.

On 19 August 2015, Peter Moi, who worked for various newspapers and media outlets in South Sudan, was shot dead in Juba by two unidentified assailants as he made his way home from work. Earlier in May, James Raeth, a radio journalist based in Aboko, was also killed in an attack by unknown perpetrators.

Three days prior to Mr. Moi’s killing, President Kiir had reportedly threatened journalists and media workers at a news conference and declared that freedom of press does not mean that they may work against their country.

“Like others, I was outraged by the remarks attributed to President Kiir”, the Special Rapporteur on freedom of expression said. “However, I take note of the recent statement by the South Sudanese Information Minister denying any intention on the part of the authorities to target journalists.”

“I unequivocally condemn the recent killings of journalists in South Sudan. Any threats or attacks are completely unacceptable and only embolden perpetrators to commit further violence against journalists, with impunity,” Mr. Kaye added. “I urge the country’s authorities to promote a safe and enabling environment for them to perform their work independently and without interference.”

The Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial executions further added: “I am deeply disturbed by the allegations of attacks against journalists in South Sudan. The brutal killing of Mr. Moi and Mr. Raeth need to be urgently and thoroughly investigated and the perpetrators must be held accountable.”

“Political leaders have a duty to refrain from making provocative statements against journalists,” Mr. Heyns noted. “The Government must take measures to prevent such killings and to conduct thorough, prompt and impartial investigations of all cases of summary executions of journalists in the country since the beginning of the year.”

The human rights experts warned that targeting media independence produces a ‘chilling effect’ that could deter the legitimate exercise of the right to freedom of expression and opinion and the right to seek, impart and receive information. They urged the Government of South Sudan to take immediate steps to allow space for open debate and freedom of expression.

The experts are in contact with the South Sudanese authorities to clarify the issues in question.

David Kaye (USA) was appointed as Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression in August 2014 by the United Nations Human Rights Council. Learn more, log on to: http://www.ohchr.org/EN/Issues/FreedomOpinion/Pages/OpinionIndex.aspx

The Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, Christof Heyns (South Africa), is a director of the Institute for International and Comparative Law in Africa and Professor of Human Rights Law at the University of Pretoria, where he has also directed the Centre for Human Rights, and has engaged in wide-reaching initiatives on human rights in Africa. He has advised a number of international, regional and national entities on human rights issues. Learn more, log on to: http://www.ohchr.org/EN/Issues/Executions/Pages/SRExecutionsIndex.aspx

The UN Special Rapporteurs are part of what 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. Special Procedures’ experts work on a voluntary basis; they are not UN staff and do not receive a salary for their work.

UNDP launches storytelling contest to amplify climate coverage on the run up to Paris summit

Geneva, 27 August 2015 – UNDP has launched today a global storytelling contest, Voices2Paris, to contribute to raising public awareness on the negative impacts of climate change as well as on the opportunities and solutions seen in actions by individuals and governments alike across vulnerable developing countries worldwide.

“We want to provide young journalists in developing countries a unique opportunity to contribute to the global debate on climate change in the run-up to COP21, while building their capacity and providing recognition for excellence” noted Neil Buhne, UNDP Geneva Director.
UNDP targets journalists 35 years of age and under from developing countries who are already engaged in public writing and want to contribute ¬– locally and internationally – towards greater public awareness on climate change.

The best stories will be published every day in the immediate run-up to COP21, carrying messages of struggle, opportunity and hope from the climate change frontlines worldwide. The authors of the top two prize-winning stories will be invited to attend and cover the COP21 UN climate summit in Paris this December.

Stories can be submitted by young journalists from developing countries in English, and in Arabic, Chinese, French and Spanish with an English translation, on a rolling basis until October 11th, 2015. Guidelines to participate are available on UNDP Geneva website.

A team of senior journalists reporting on climate change from top-tier international media outlets, regional media associations, and representatives from major international organizations, will review the entries and mentor the participants.

“The contest is an excellent initiative to promote investigative and innovative coverage from the young generation of journalists. It is also an opportunity for African journalists to reconfigure state-society relations and contribute to the development of the continent” added Sidi El Moctar Cheiguer, President of the African Network of Environmental Journalists.

Stories, once screened and scored will be published on UNDP’s website and disseminated through partners’ channels to ensure maximum outreach and support the call for an ambitious agenda to be endorsed during the COP21. APO (The African Press Organization) and Oxfam Hong Kong are special partners of the contest.

Participating organizations: African Network of Environmental Journalists, Care International, China Dialogue, Global Call for Climate Action, International Center for Journalists, Global Village of Beijing, Innovative Green Development Program, InterNews, Pacific Islands News Association, RNTC, RTCC/Climate Home, Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme and University of the South Pacific.

We also thank the global network of climate vulnerable countries active in the Climate Vulnerable Forum currently chaired by Philippines for its support.

Speaking on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro, The Minister stated that, “It has been a traditional practice to celebrate annually the UN Day on 24th October. This year, it is different and even more special, because we are celebrating the 70th year of the United Nations. While celebrating, let us all reflect on where we came from, and forge ahead with much more determination.”Emphasizing the government’s partnership with the United Nations, he noted that Tanzania will continue to support reforms of the United Nations, including the Delivering as One (DaO) initiatives, which have been implemented with considerable success since 2007.

Highlighting this important day, the United Nations Resident Coordinator noted the relevance of the theme for the tree planting ceremony, which is “One Planet, 7 Billion People: Environment Protection is our responsibility”. He noted that the tree planting theme focuses on our key responsibilities for the planet and to protect the environment for future generations. “We are trying to focus our attention on what should be done after the end of the Millennium Development Goals, and we are currently identifying priorities under the Sustainable Development Goals and the post -2015 development agenda for Tanzania. They include overarching themes related to People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnership.”

He reiterated that, “Climate Change is real! So far, the UN in Tanzania has contributed to reducing risks of, and improving society’s resilience to, climate change, through its support to the development, launching and implementation of the National Climate Change Strategy, including support towards mitigation strategies”.

On his side, The European Union Ambassador representing Development Partners stated that, “Planting trees on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro on the 70th anniversary of the UN is highly symbolic on many accounts. It translates our common engagement to protect the environment, to promote the sustainable management of natural resources by the local communities, and to minimize the effects of climate change in Africa, starting from its marvellous top mountain. The European Union, the UN and other Development Partners support the efforts of the government of Tanzania to overcome the challenges of climate change and to lift people out of poverty. The EU advocates for ambitious decisions at this year’s UN conferences on MDGs, SDGs and Climate Change. These are global issues and only a strong UN will lead to the courageous decisions that are needed. We want a stronger UN for a better world!”
