The Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre, with funding from the Swedish government, trained stakeholders in monitoring and reporting on Women’s Peace and Security (WPS) using the Continental Results Framework (CRF).

This initiative aims to build their capacity and improve their skills and knowledge on CRF’s WPS monitoring and reporting program.

The training targeted actors from the Ministry of Gender, Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies, the military, state security agencies, civil society actors and other relevant state agencies in southern Ghana.

The Continental Results Framework, a ten-year strategic framework, was adopted in 2018 to monitor and report on the implementation of the Women’s Agenda for Peace in Africa.

The Accountability Tool was developed by the Office of the Special Envoy for Women’s Peace and Security at the African Union Commission.

It is part of the United States Security Council Resolution 1325 document developed to address the plight of women in conflict situations and increase women’s participation.

Ghana therefore developed the National Action Plan (GHANAP 1325) for the implementation of UNSCR 1325 in 2012 and later revised it into GHANAP 2 for the period 2020-2025, adding a pillar on relief, recovery and rehabilitation.

However, some gaps had been identified in achieving the objectives of the CRF, requiring Member States to request a capacity building program to make better use of the framework.

The deputy commander of the Kofi Annan International Peace Training Center, Air Force Commander George Arko-Dadzie, clarified that, given the demand, the Women’s Peace and Security Institute of his team s is partnering with the Office of the Special Envoy to design a comprehensive training program to build the capacity of national actors.

He revealed that capacity building training has already been organized in Liberia, Niger, Sierra Leone, South Sudan and Kumasi in Ghana.

Cdr Arko-Dadzie pleaded with the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Care – the ministry responsible for implementing the CRF – to foster a stronger relationship with stakeholders with a view to developing a comprehensive report on the implementation of the Women’s Peace and Security Agenda.

He detailed that the 2019 to 2021 WPS reports presented by the Ministry of Gender highlighted the achievements of the Government of Ghana in promoting the WPS agenda.

“We hope that beyond the knowledge that will be acquired during the course, it will also provide the ministry with the opportunity to build closer relationships with representatives of the different institutions to facilitate the collection of information to develop the national report. “, did he declare.

He further stated that “as local actors contributing to the acceleration of the WPS agenda, I urge you to take advantage of this opportunity to improve your knowledge of the WPS agenda as well as to improve your skills in the ‘use the CRF in your quest to report and monitor the implementation of the women, peace and security agenda’.

Catherine Gaku Njeru, Gender Monitoring Specialist in the Office of the Special Envoy for Women’s Peace and Security at the African Union Commission, commended Ghana for its progress in women’s participation in peace and to conflict resolution.

She implored the KAIPTC to ensure that all West African Member States adhere to the agenda and prioritize the security of women during conflict.

“African countries have continuously embraced the agenda and we now have 34, or 66% of African countries. 15 of them are in the ECOWAS sub-region and so I ask Kofi Annan to ensure that the only remaining country joins.

This is because people have believed for so long that national action plans only belong to the countries that have been affected. Each country now faces a different crisis; we have climate change, terrorism and all that, every country needs a national action plan to make sure that women’s issues and gender issues are mainstreamed into it and all the security issues that affect our country,” she said.

The Volta Regional Director of the Gender Department, Thywill Eyra Kpe, highlighted her team’s commitment to ensuring the welfare of women in Ghana through the adoption and implementation of many of her policies and programs. .

She highlighted the important role women play in peacebuilding, indicating that peace agreements are more likely to be implemented when women are included in the negotiations and have become signatories to the agreements.

“Concerted efforts are needed from all stakeholders to achieve gender balance in peace and security for a more equal and equitable Ghana. As a country committed to the Sustainable Development Goals, we must make a difference by achieving gender balance for sustainable development.

The principles of equality, non-discrimination and equitable distribution of the benefits of development should be our priority in order to strengthen peace and security,” she said.

The 5-day workshop saw participants enlightened on topics such as understanding WPS agenda concepts, demonstrating an understanding and application of basic monitoring and reporting concepts, and applying CRF indicators in their reports.

The Lagos government on Thursday called on artisans, developers and built environment professionals to support initiatives to reduce building collapse.

The Chief Executive of the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA), Gbolahan Oki, made the call during a two-day workshop hosted by the agency in Oregun, Lagos.

Mr Oki said experts were looking for solutions, but collaboration between government and stakeholders was important “to ensure that building collapse is kept to an absolute minimum”.

According to him, the central problem of building collapse is the craftsmen’s violation of building construction laws. He said the government could not do it alone, hence the call for joint efforts to reduce the threat to save lives and prevent the loss of investments.

“We realize that in construction, the welder, the masons, the engineers and all the other stakeholders are important. That’s why we’re sitting here discussing how to move the construction world forward,” Mr Oki said. “The collapse of a building goes beyond the framework of the architect or the welder, but we must face it collectively. The central problem is the attitude problem.

The chief executive of LASBCA said most builders or developers are not obeying government guidelines on building construction, leading to an increase in cases of building collapses.

“Errors in buildings are not something you can easily say you want to fix or go back to change. That’s why developers need to make sure we’re building the right way. One of the ways to stop collapsing buildings is to make sure the agency and the craftsmen put us on our toes to make sure we’re always doing the right thing,” said a developer, Valentina Olalade.

In addition, a member of the Association of Property Developers, Kabiru Olaniyinka, urged stakeholders in the building and construction industry to strictly adhere to LASBCA guidelines.

Stakeholders called on architects to design buildings that will reduce the effects of climate change on Nigerians.
Stakeholders including the Director General of the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMET), Professor Mansur Matazu, who spoke at the 2022 Association of Consulting Architects of Nigeria (ACAN) Symposium and Business Forum held recently in Lagos.
In his speech delivered virtually, Matazu explained that climate change was an existential threat to humanity globally and its effects were already evident in Nigeria, ranging from increased temperature to increased weather variability. precipitation, sea level rise, floods, drought and desertification.

The theme of the event was: “Redesigning buildings for climate change.

He said: “The slogan of modern architecture should be ‘Design for climate change’ because climate change would make most beautiful buildings waste and uninhabitable in the future. Nighttime temperatures previously known to be minimal are becoming high, making sleep difficult and uncomfortable in most homes.”

According to him, construction operations are responsible for 27% of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and the potential of the construction sector as an effective agent in reducing GHG emissions is significant.

Matazu said the 2021 UNEP and Global Situation Report found that 27% of construction operations, 10% of building materials and construction and 10% of other construction industry activities contributed to emissions. annual global carbon dioxide emissions.

He noted that buildings have relatively longer lifespans and that measures taken to reduce the carbon footprint from design to construction would have the desired effect.

The professor said that for climate-resilient buildings, the number of hours of use of air conditioners and light bulbs should be reduced through the use of natural daylight during the day.

Also speaking, Managing Director, Watersmith Petroman Oil Ltd., Engr. Chikezie Nwosu, said architects should work towards designing buildings with less or zero carbon emissions by considering the manufacturing process and certification of materials for buildings.

He called for a partnership between the energy and construction industries to ensure that sustainable and renewable energy is delivered to buildings.

“While the energy sector ensures that sustainable and renewable energy is supplied to buildings, architects must ensure that building designs comply with energy efficiency and conservative guidelines,” he said. -he declares.

Elon Musk completed his takeover of Twitter and wasted no time in firing a number of the company’s top executives, including the chief executive.

The billionaire appeared to confirm media reports of his takeover, tweeting shortly before 5 a.m. UK time on Friday: “The bird is free.”

A US court had set a deadline of Friday for the boss of Tesla and SpaceX to complete its acquisition of the platform for $44bn (£38bn).

Several Twitter personalities and board members, including Bret Taylor, who had served as the company’s president, changed their social media profiles to say they no longer work for the company.

According to reports, Mr Musk’s first act upon taking office was to sack Chief Executive Parag Agrawal, Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal and General Counsel and Chief Security Officer Vijaya Gadde.

Mr. Musk had publicly criticized both Mr. Agrawal and Ms. Gadde over Twitter policy in the months leading up to the takeover, particularly what he believes to be its “free speech” policing. “.

Who owned Twitter before Elon Musk?

Twitter was founded by Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone and Evan Williams in 2006.

It started as a private company, with Mr Dorsey as managing director, before going public in 2013.

On April 25, Twitter’s board agreed to a $44 billion takeover by Mr. Musk, making it one of the biggest deals in history to take a company private.

Prior to Mr Musk’s takeover, the company was largely owned by institutional investors, with Vanguard Group being the largest shareholder at 10.3%. Mr. Musk himself held a 9.2% stake.

Morgan Stanley Investment Management held 8.4%, while fellow investment firms BlackRock and StateStreet each held 4.75%.

Mr Dorsey owned 2.5% of the company, while other board members held stakes worth millions.

Mr. Agrawal owned about 128,000 shares, worth around $7 million under Mr. Musk’s deal. Mr. Segal’s 394,000 shares are worth $21 million and Ms. Gadde had 600,000 shares worth $32 million.

The company’s 7,000 employees have also been able to buy shares at a discount since Twitter went public.

Mr Dorsey stepped down as CEO in November 2021, replaced by Mr Agrawal, and left his place on the board in May this year.

More Company

What does Elon Musk’s takeover mean for Twitter?

On Thursday, Mr. Musk issued a statement to Twitter advertisers, in which he said he was acquiring the platform because he felt it was important to have a space where “a wide range of beliefs can be debated in a healthy way”.

It came after he posted a bizarre video of himself entering Twitter HQ on Wednesday with a sink, alongside the message “Entering Twitter HQ – let it sink in”.

He also updated his bio on the social media platform to “Chief Twit” in another nod to the deal being done.

Mr Musk reportedly told staff during his visit to headquarters on Wednesday that it was not true that he planned to cut up to 75% of staff.

It was previously reported that Mr Musk had told investors he planned to lay off around three-quarters of the company’s 7,500 employees.

More Company

Staff, Twitter users and industry experts are waiting to see what his plans are for the platform.

He has previously spoken of his belief in ‘absolute freedom of speech’ and suggested he would allow the return of previously suspended and often controversial figures, including former US President Donald Trump, which has alarmed campaigners. online security.

It has been reported that many employees plan to leave the company once the takeover is completed, and some security activists have warned that Twitter could become an easy target for hackers following the deal.

Despite this internal confusion and low morale linked to fears of layoffs or a dismantling of the company’s culture and operations, Twitter executives this week at least welcomed Mr. Musk’s arrival and messages.

The billionaire was pictured meeting with staff for several days at his headquarters in San Francisco.

As part of his plans for the site, Mr. Musk also talked about deleting all spam and bot accounts and using Twitter as part of a so-called “everything app” called X, where users can access a wide range of services in one place.

It’s similar to WeChat in China, where users can access social media, online shopping and money transfer, taxi hire, restaurant reservations and more from a single app. .

What do you think of the Fayetteville-Manlius School District? We want to hear from you!

Parents, caregivers, students, staff, and members of the FM community can anonymously share feedback with district leaders on topics including academic rigor, leadership, student support, and FM priority areas by responding to the district’s community survey, which is open until November 1. 14, 2022.

“One of the District’s priorities is to provide a welcoming school where everyone feels respected, included, valued and connected,” said Superintendent of Schools Craig J. Tice. “To ensure we are making progress on this priority and to better align our resources with the needs identified by our school community, it is important that we hear from stakeholders about what we are doing well and what we need to improve.

The survey asks 17 questions, most of which are in the form of multiple choice or tick boxes, and takes about seven minutes to complete. The final survey question asks participants to indicate if they are interested in serving on FM’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Education Committee. If the respondent selects “yes” to this question, the survey after being submitted anonymously redirects the user to a new form where they can provide their details. This is to ensure that the district can follow up on people who express an interest in serving on the committee; it is in no way linked to their survey responses. If the respondent does not select “yes” to the final question, the form will prompt the user to submit the survey and no further action is required.

A summary of the survey results will be shared with the community at a future FM Board of Education meeting.

Individuals who cannot access the survey electronically should contact 315-692-1200 to request a hard copy.

“We look forward to your feedback, which will help shape the journey of our students and staff as we move forward,” Tice said.
