The Green Growth Best Practice (GGBP) initiative has issued a new report to help governments transition their economies successfully to climate compatible development.
A new report launched today by the Green Growth Best Practice (GGBP) initiative, pulls together the many tangible benefits that governments and communities are realising through the adoption of green growth policies.
Eighteen months ago, as 2012 drew to a close, optimism was running high for the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. Polio transmission in India had been interrupted. The three remaining endemic countries (Pakistan, Nigeria, Afghanistan) had made significant programmatic improvements. Some believed that success was imminent; that polio would soon be history.
Within a matter of months, this optimism quickly unwound:
• Targeted killing of polio vaccinators in Pakistan shocked the world and created major operational constraints.
In December 2010, the UK government published two Frameworks for Results setting out its commitment to accelerate progress on addressing the international challenges of malaria and Reproductive Maternal and Newborn Health (RMNH). This report presents the findings of the Mid- Term Review (MTR) of the Frameworks.
Overview of the Frameworks
CBM and partners launch key publication on Disability Inclusive Disaster Risk Management
As disasters have such a huge impact on human lives, it is important to make Disaster Risk Management inclusive to all. CBM and its partners have launched a key publication on good practices in this important field. It gives great examples of disability inclusive Disaster Risk Management, showing persons with disabilities as active participants in Disaster Risk Response interventions.
What Inclusive Disaster Risk Reduction means?
The question of 'what changes do we need to empower women smallholders and achieve food security?' has been asked repeatedly. But transformational changes in both public policy and practice have been few and far between, although increasing access to resources and opportunities for women farmers could substantially reduce the number of hungry people in the world.
This report is a synthesis from lessons of government experiences of scale up of community-based management of acute malnutrition (CMAM). It is based on nine country case studies (Ethiopia, Pakistan, Niger, Somalia, Kenya, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Malawi, Mozambique), considerations around scale-up from India, and the proceedings of an international conference in Addis Ababa, 14-17 November, 2011 at which the case studies and India experiences were presented and discussed. The contributions of an additional 12 countries at the conference are also reflected in this report.
The past two decades have delivered unprecedented progress and improvements in quality of life across the developing world. Poverty has fallen in most developing countries, and the number of low-income countries fell from 60 in 2003 to just 39 in 2009. Countries such as India and (particularly) China have managed to lift very large numbers of people out of extreme poverty. Progress has not been restricted to increases in income; many developing countries have also dramatically improved their access to vital services, such as education and health.
This review has focused the UK's bilateral aid programme in fewer countries so we can target our support where it will make the biggest difference and where the need is greatest.
i. INTRODUCTION TO THE EVALUATION
1.This evaluation of the DG ECHO Food Aid Budget Line (FABL) was undertaken in accordance with the requirement for DG ECHO to comply with Article 18 of the European Council's Regulation on Humanitarian Aid (1257/96) which reaffirms the importance of independent assessment and the requirements of the European Community's Financial Regulations, which state that evaluation is a part of sound financial management.
2.A number of changes made the evaluation process particularly challenging.
