SWITZERLAND AND APOPO LAUNCHES A US$1 MILLION MINE CLEARANCE PROJECT IN SOUTHERN ZIMBABWE FOR THE SAFE RETURN OF LAND TO THE LOCAL COMMUNITIES

Switzerland, through the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), has provided US$ 1 million to APOPO Mine Action for clearing a dense minefield in the Sengwe Wildlife Corridor in southern Zimbabwe for the next two years. The project is set to save lives, and to improve safe access to agricultural land and conservation in the area.

Through the new initiative, at least 1,630,419 square metres of land will be made safe for local communities and wildlife in the area. The new intervention builds on an earlier phase implemented in 2020 that cleared 1,093,152 square metres of the same minefield.

Southern Zimbabwe faces numerous challenges due to the existence of landmines laid four decades ago which have imperilled the lives of both people and animals. The project Enabling Development through Landmine Clearance in the Sengwe Wildlife Corridor will create a safe passage for local communities as well as tourists while reducing human-wildlife conflict.

This World AIDS Day, Switzerland 🇨🇭 highlights the urgent need to end the inequalities that drive AIDS and other pandemics around the world.

Without bold action against inequalities, the world risks missing the targets to end AIDS by 2030, as well as a prolonged COVID-19 pandemic and a spiralling social and economic crisis.

Forty years since the first AIDS cases were reported, HIV still threatens the world. Today, the world is off track from delivering on the shared commitment to end AIDS by 2030 not because of a lack of knowledge or tools to beat AIDS, but because of structural inequalities that obstruct proven solutions to HIV prevention and treatment.

This World AIDS Day let’s remind our governments that global inequalities affect us all, no matter who we are or where we are from. This World AIDS Day let’s demand action to end inequalities and end AIDS and all other pandemics that thrive on inequalities.

URBAN HYDROPONICS FARMERS BEAT WATER CHALLENGES

IN the backyard of a house in one of the oldest suburbs in Gweru, Ascot, a 44-year-old mother of two is using hydroponics to grow vegetables. Ms Shelter Saidi, a vendor in the suburb always had a passion for farming but water shortages were a limiting factor. For two weeks, her water tap has been dry and she has been fetching water from a community borehole about a kilometre away.

Three months ago, a hydroponics system was set up in her backyard by a non-governmental organisation Welt Hunger Hilfe (WHH) with financial support from Switzerland.

It's World Toilet Day!

When some people in a community do not have safe toilets, everyone’s health is threatened. Poor sanitation contaminates drinking-water sources, rivers and food crops, spreading deadly diseases among the wider population.

This year’s theme is about valuing toilets. The campaign draws attention to the fact that toilets – and the sanitation systems that support them – are underfunded, poorly managed or neglected in many parts of the world, with devastating consequences for health, economics and the environment, particularly in the poorest and most marginalized communities.

It is fundamental for the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation to celebrate this day & to support the SDG6 for the Agenda2030!

The Embassy of Switzerland 🇨🇭 is delighted to have attended the first drone conference in Zimbabwe 🇿🇼, organised by the Drones for Good Network, Drones.R.Africa, Precision Aerial and Zimbabwe Flying Labs – a member of the global Flying Labs Network founded by WeRobotics of Switzerland.

Like mobile phones a couple of years ago, the potential of drones to transform the way we work/live in this digital age is limitless. Incredible changes have been seen in mining, health, humanitarian field of disaster management and agriculture etc. Drones also have the potential to create employment opportunities.

Speakers at the conference including Tommy Sithole from the Zimbabwe Drone Operators Association, Sonja Betschart and Patrick Meier co-founders of WeRobotics in Switzerland are showing how disruptive innovation is altering our world. #SwissTech #dronesforgood

FARMERS IN MALAWI RECEIVE CASH IN ONE OF THE LARGEST INSURANCE PAY OUTS IN AFRICA

With the surging effects of climate change in Southern Africa, Switzerland 🇨🇭 through the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and other donors is working with the World Food Programme to empower farmers to manage their climate risks and reduce the impact of climate-related hazards.

For example, in the 2020-2021 farming season, farmers in Malawi insured crops such as maize, sorghum, rice and groundnuts among others to protect their incomes from harvest losses.

The farmers accessed the insurance through either paying a portion of their premium in cash or participating in building community assets such as wells, vegetable gardens and tree nurseries that help them with stand future weather shocks.

After drought and pests destroyed their crops, nearly 65,000 farming households received cash payouts from the insurance programme. This is one of the largest crop index insurance pay outs ever on the African continent, amounting to US$2.4 million.

A similar programme is also running in Zimbabwe in Masvingo Province.

The Ubuntu Organisation On a chair at the veranda Tunda sat, rather impatient, five litres of palm wine in front of him while his wife busied in the kitchen. His impatience relaxed when Kasunda finally appeared. “Here are the kola nuts, grandpa,” Kasunda said, handing him some kola nuts wrapped in a cocoyam leaf. Tunda had sent him to take them from his brother, Kasunda’s granduncle. On holidays in the outskirts of Kasane, Botswana, Kasunda had come from Livingstone, Zambia where he lived with his parents. “Thank you, my boy,” Tunda said, unwrapping the leaf. “Pour me some of the palm wine.” Kasunda did and Tunda asked him to get his own cup from the house. “Bring the radio when you are coming,” he added. “Ok, grandpa.” Tunda immediately turned on the fifteen years old radio when Kasunda brought it. It had been bought the day Kasunda was born. “… My name is Mathew Mthabane and with me in the studio are Jarara Wabane from ‘Peace Forum’ and Bartholomew Kisuru from ‘Give World Peace a Chance’. Today we will be looking at the ways forward for several crises around the world. Particularly, we’ll focus on Cameroon, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Libya, Myanmar, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen. Of course, we will also talk about…” The radio batteries suddenly ran too low. “Oh no!” Tunda cried. “Do not worry, grandpa,” young Kasunda said. “I will buy many batteries for your radio when I will start working. I will even get you a new radio.” “Thank you, thoughtful boy.” Kasunda smiled at grandpa’s kindly remark and sipped some wine. “Grandpa,” “Yes, my boy.” “What is to be done about these crises?” Tunda gulped the wine in his cup. “Good question, child,” he said and then refilled the cup. “We need to start living as a family. We need a new organisation. Let’s call it ‘Ubuntu Organisation’, to bring us more together, to be truly there for each another, which is a great need. “Heunghh, grandpa?” “That you and I are not from Cameroon, for example, should not make us unconcerned about their crisis to propose how to resolve it. For starts, we need an organisation that will pool in intelligence and proposals from individuals around the world. I have a feeling that so many people around the globe would really want to help resolve these many world crises, just that they do not know how. Where there is a crisis, in whatever country, let us focus on it and stretch out ourselves to help out. We shouldn’t wait for so many people to die or for so many things to go wrong before we do something. Let us then act in advance to stem the tide of these crises.” Something struck Kasunda that taking up the solutions to world crises were as easy as that for starts. “Yes, grandpa, this generation can still do something.” He meant every word he uttered. “Yes, my boy.” “Kasunda!” grandma called for him to come and collect their own food. Only then did Tunda feel that he needed to eat. Kasunda dashed out after emptying his cup. “Global Ubuntu,” Tunda murmured to himself. His mind was electrified with possibilities in the fight for normalcy for a crisis-ridden world. He had no solutions, just a plan to call a meeting… Aye Brandon Kiven [email protected]
