Daniel Kozak, Communications Officer in the World Bank's Romania office, offers this story.
The facade of Bucharest's Sector One City Hall is pure neo-Romanian baroque, festooned with pillars and arches and flanked by an imposing tower. The inside is a feat of earthquake proof design and engineering.

- In the past 100 years, the global average temperature has risen by about 0.74 degrees Celsius.
- The rate of change accelerated over the course of the 20th Century.
- Projections in temperature rise for the 21st century range from 2 to 4 degrees Celsius.
- It is very likely that this temperature rise is mainly caused by the emission of what are known as greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide (C02) and methane.

PARIS, Dec 19, 2007 (AFP) - Some of the biggest disasters of 2007:
- In November, a cyclone kills around 3,300 people and leaves hundreds of thousands homeless and in desperate need of supplies in Bangladesh. A military-led relief effort, aided by a fleet of US helicopters, is hampered by huge logistical hurdles after many roads are washed away by a tidal wave or blocked by fallen trees.
- More than 3,200 people are killed and 25 million of others marooned and displaced in the worst floods in decades across South Asia between June and September.
A message from the ACT Coordinating Office
AFRICA: In eastern Africa, despite improved outlook for current season crops in several countries, more than 18 million people are in need of food assistance. In western Africa, notwithstanding improved harvest prospects generally in the Sahel, the food security situation is still of concern notably in Niger, Mali and Burkina Faso. In Southern Africa, food insecurity is worsening for an estimated 12 million people due to reduced harvests in 2005, escalating food prices and rising energy costs.
