UN: Prompts Concern for Defending Press Freedom and the Violent Suppression of the Media in Iraq

 

 

#AceWorldNews says the head of the United Nations agency tasked with defending press freedom expressed alarm today over violent suppression of the media in Iraq, following the killing of news cameraman Alaa Edwar in the northern province of Nineveh.

 

 

 

“I condemn the murder of Alaa Edwar,” Irina Bokova, Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), <“http://www.unesco.org/new/en/media-services/single-view/news/director_general_voices_grave_concern_for_safety_of_media_workers_in_iraq_after_murder_of_cameraman_alaa_edwar/#.UpjC9yd0nAE“>said, calling for measures to improve the safety of media workers in the country.

 

 

 

Mr. Edwar, 41, had resigned from his job as cameraman for Nineveh Al-Ghad Television after receiving threats that he would be killed if he continued in his line of work. He was shot dead on 24 November by unidentified gunmen near his home in the north of Mosul.

Intimidation and violence are being used to prevent the Iraqi public from receiving news. It is therefore urgent that the authorities do all they can to bring the perpetrators of Alaa Edwar’s murder to justice,” said Ms. Bokova.

 

 

 

According to UNESCO, 23 journalists, including Mr. Edwar, have been killed in Iraq over the past five years.  All are remembered on the dedicated webpage, UNESCO Condemns Killing of Journalists.

OPCW Executive Council adopts plan for the destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons programme in the first half of 2014

Friday, 15 November 2013
• Most critical chemicals to leave Syria by end of 2013 • Over 60 percent of unfilled warheads and bombs destroyed

Sigrid Kaag, Special Coordinator of the OPCW-UN Joint Mission (Left) and OPCW Director-General Ahmet Uzumcu arrive at the Executive Council meeting on 15 November 2013 to discuss the destruction plan of the Syrian Chemical Weapons Programme.

The OPCW Executive Council (EC) approved today a detailed plan of destruction to eliminate Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile. In the plan, Syrian chemical weapons will be transported for destruction outside its territory to ensure their destruction in the “safest and soonest manner”, and no later than June 30th 2014.

“I welcome the decision reached today by the Executive Council,” said OPCW Director General Ahmet Ümzücü. “The plan provides a clear roadmap. It sets ambitious milestones to be met by the Government of Syria. This next phase will be the most challenging and its prompt execution will require the existence of a secure environment for the verification and transport of chemical weapons. Continuing international support and assistance for this attempt will remain crucial.”

“I wish to express my sincere appreciation for all the States who have supported this mission – through both financial and in-kind contributions,” said OPCW-UN Joint Mission Special Coordinator Sigrid Kaag addressing the Council.  “I am currently reaching out to others to consider joining this international effort, which is key to the successful implementation of the Executive Council’s decision”

The EC’s decision distinguishes between destruction actions “in the Syrian Arab Republic” and destruction activities “outside the territory” of Syria and stipulates intermediate destruction milestones leading to the complete elimination of its chemical weapons programme.

The plan envisions the removal of all declared chemical substances and precursors, except for isopropanol, from Syria no later than 5 February 2014 with the “most critical” chemicals to be transported out of Syria by 31 December 2013.  Syrian declared chemical weapons facilities, will undergo sequenced destruction from 15 December 2013 to 15 March 2014 according to a risk-based criterion.

With respect to activities outside Syria, the Executive Council decided that the destruction of the priority chemical weapons will be completed by 31 March 2014 and all other declared chemical materials by 30 June 2014.

The OPCW Director-General will present a specific plan for the destruction of Syrian chemicals outside the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic which includes provisions for ensuring clear responsibility at each stage for all chemicals and takes into account all relevant consideration, including target dates, requirements for safety and security, and overall costs. The Director-General is also requested to establish a special Trust Fund for this purpose and to keep the Executive Council informed on progress and if target dates will be modified.

Reporting on the progress on the ground, the Director-General informed the Executive Council that the OPCW-UN Joint Mission was able to verify the destruction of over 60 percent of Syria’s declared unfilled munitions to date.  As per the Executive Council decision, the Syrian Arab Republic has committed to destroy all unfilled munitions, composed of warheads and bombs, by 31 January 2014.

BENIN: UN AGENCY PROGRAMME TO HELP FLOOD-HIT FARM COMMUNITIES REBOUND

United Nations The United Nations today launched an emergency response programme to support farmers in northern Benin who lost crops, livestock and fishing grounds when the region was hit by floods in August.

“This is emergency assistance with a longer-term view, in that it includes awareness raising and training on resilience for community members and local authorities, <“http://www.fao.org/news/story/en/item/203975/icode/“>said the Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), José Graziano da Silva, who was in the country to launch the programme.

“This can help shape a new approach that looks to the future beyond the short timeframe of immediate emergencies.”

Agriculture accounts for 70 per cent of employment in Benin. In the rural and impoverished northern region, families are even more dependent on agriculture and less able to cope with repeated setbacks.

Many of the villagers who were hit by the floods this year were only getting back on their get from the last floods in 2012. The Government estimates that crop losses alone are estimated at some $20 million. Due to the scale of the destruction, the Government has nearly exhausted its resources assisting victims with food, shelter and cash transfers, with little possibility to help re-launch the agricultural sector.

The emergency programme will launch immediately, assisting some 7,500 households that have been worst-affected by the floods by supplying quality seed for rice, off-season vegetables and maize, farming equipment, fertilizers, training in seed production and conservation, and storage infrastructure to reduce production losses.

Farmers will also be trained in modern technologies and best practices, such as micro-dosing of fertilizers, to increase production, reduce costs and protect the environment.

On Sunday, Mr. da Silva took part in a ceremony to immediately activate the emergency assistance in the northern villages of Malanville and Karimama, the worst affected by the flooding, where nearly all agricultural production was wiped out, and farmers were left with no crops and no seed for planting anew.

FAO said a portion of the emergency funding will go to rehabilitate the commercial activities of some 1,300 young people who had started farming under a Beninese Government programme for creating rural jobs and economic opportunity.

The programme’s resilience workshops will also benefit local community services by raising awareness of good agricultural practices, disaster risk reduction, climate change adaptation and natural resources management.
