INTERNATIONAL, 23 March 2019, Peace and Security - The United Nations Security Council has strongly condemned an armed attack on a village in restive central Mali which reportedly left more than 100 people dead early on Saturday. “We condemn in the strongest terms this unspeakable attack,” said François Delattre, France’s UN Ambassador speaking as President of the Security Council at a press conference Saturday evening in the Malian capital, Bamako.

UN chief welcomes establishment of inclusive government in Central African Republic

INTERNATIONAL, 23 March 2019, Peace and Security - United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres has welcomed the establishment in the Central African Republic (CAR) of a government in line with an early February peace deal struck with more than a dozen armed groups active in the country.

Cyclone Idai: UNICEF warns of ‘race against time’ to protect children, prevent spread of disease in flood-ravaged Mozambique

INTERNATIONAL, 23 March 2019 - Humanitarian Aid - A week after the flooded Mozambican port of Beira was hit by Cyclone Idai, “aid agencies are barely beginning to see the scale of the damage”, the head of UNICEF said on Saturday, as she called for more international support to help quickly get relief to more than a million people across the country and prevent the possible spread of waterborne diseases like cholera. “We are in a race against time to help and protect children in the disaster-ravaged areas of Mozambique,” UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore said at the end of a visit to Beira, one of the areas worst affected by Cyclone Idai.  According to initial Government estimates, 1.8 million people across the country, including 900,000 children, have been affected...

The sun’s impact on Earth and weather celebrated, as planet marks World Meteorological Day

INTERNATIONAL, 23 March 2019, Climate Change - Against a background of serious warnings against the effects of climate change, World Meteorological Day this year celebrates the crucial role played by the sun in powering all life on Earth, and in driving the weather, ocean currents and the hydrological cycle. The day  which, every 23 March, marks the anniversary of the 1950 Convention that established the UN World Meteorological Organization (WMO), is the occasion to take stock of the importance of the sun and weather monitoring for the common safety, health and well-being of all living things on the planet. Through its national meteorological and hydrological services, WMO has been providing expertise, monitoring and forecast services to both harness and protect us from the power of the sun. “Too little sun impacts...
