  • Mid-term evaluation of Naturvernforbundet’s Oilwatch Africa programme - norad.no
    newsletters supplied by Naturvernforbundet and member organizations of the Oilwatch Africa Programme interviews with staff members of partner organizations local community people representatives of government bodies oil companies and other important stakeholders such as journalists As well it involved field visits to programme areas in Nigeria Uganda Tanzania and Ghana Key findings Influencing international processes in order to check harmful practices and policies of corporations and governments is a crucial part of OWA s mandate So far it has made considerable progress During the period under review OWA established contact with the Economic Community of West African States ECOWAS Such link was lacking prior Meanwhile there exist opportunities for constructive and environmentally useful engagements for example with the African Union SADC ECOWAS and multilateral institutions like the World Bank Partners are yet to take full advantage of these opportunities Oilwatch Africa main member countries recorded varied levels of successes in terms of changes within the period under review This was noticed in the intensity of alliances challenging energy extractive companies and governments over oil and mining related environmental social economic livelihoods and political problems OWA made impressive progress in ensuring local participation in environmental impact assessment processes and joint investigative visits which serve the interest of the environment and livelihoods Now community leaders in Calaba and Ikarama in Nigeria can alone demand inclusion or participation in these processes whenever they feel denied This means that they have been strengthened to challenge oil companies over oil related environmental issues and deprivations Although this is happening to a limited extent and with little good results the improvement is worthy of note Access to information from oil companies and governments has improved Among member organisations the huge cost of generating information did not hinder access Instead information sharing especially on oil spill matters improved with increased capacity of local communities under the Host Community Network strategy HoCon However this has not happened across the board as the situation in Tanzania and Uganda shows that the rate of access to information from the government and oil companies is much slower Recommendations Strengthen OWA with more resources and capacity building for better engagement with policy and political decision makers at the regional and global multilateral fronts At least two workshops should be organised to address these issues Existing contacts with regional bodies such as ECOWAS SADC African Union and so on should be utilised for a more elaborate policy influence work Avenues for engagement with multilateral intuitions like the World Bank in pursuit of environmental protection and protection of livelihoods should be creatively sought Innovation or creativity is required to make OWA more responsive to problems associated with the petroleum industry livelihoods and environment OWA network members without resources for effective mobilisation of communities affected by fossil fuel energy extraction activities and use should be assisted to reach out better This could be achieved through regular joint activities at national regional and global levels Strengthen collective advocacy at regional and international fronts by encouraging joint

  • Creating Change in Children’s Lives – with focus on local governments: An Evaluation of Save the Children’s Child Rights Governance Programme, Nicaragua Case Study - norad.no
    Methodology The report has resulted from a desk review interviews and focus groups with children and youth in Nicaragua The field visit to Nicaragua was conducted between the 27th of August and the 5th of September 2013 by a team of two consultants Children and youth were engaged in four focus groups where participatory exercises including timeline and Venn Diagrams were conducted A half day introductory meeting with Save the Children Nicaragua staff was held to share the aims of the evaluation as well as discuss the methodology and gain some contextual understanding on the projects conducted on CRG and how these fit within SC s broader engagement in the country The field visit ended with a debrief session where preliminary findings and our understanding of these were presented to Save the Children Staff Key findings from this study have been included in the synthesis report Key findings SC involvement in Nicaragua has primarily focused on work with municipal governments to increase their engagement on Child Rights issues SC partners in Nicaragua extend far beyond municipal governments but can generally be seen as part of an effort that supports local government engagement Broader efforts have included for example the strategic level engagement with the central government institutions aimed at improving the child rights situation overall i e MIFAMILIA The Nicaraguan experience in creating and supporting partnerships is a rich one In Nicaragua SC has worked with a variety of partners ranging from government actors at the central and the local level civil society organizations children institutions and initiatives as well as academic institutions SC s partnerships with these organizations have enabled projects and programmes around the country to carry out activities ranging from radio programmes to MA programs and most prominently working directly with municipal governments to support capacity building on child rights issues and strengthen their ability to support the implementation of child friendly policies Overall the partnerships have benefited from strong ties to SC and there are clear synergies between the works carried out by individual partners SC has started to promote lateral relationships between SC partners This is an area that could be consolidated and would serve to strengthen the outcomes of the SC work overall SC s role as an innovator in the Nicaraguan context extends to some of the projects supported by SC mainly to the work conducted with the network of municipalities and more recently with supporting municipal child friendly budgeting In furthering results to scale the work carried out with municipalities is one that appears to have the potential to be sustainable long after SC involvement may cease While there are numerous steps that remain to be taken in ensuring that municipalities have developed child friendly policies the potential for sustainability is there because there is a structural foundation from where municipal governments can develop Child rights is one of many clear and important demands made of municipal governments therefore SC s support is important in focusing attention on CRG specifically Recommendations 1

  • Creating Change in Children’s Lives: An Evaluation of Save the Children’s Child Rights Governance Programme, Nepal Case Study - norad.no
    and to fulfil the reporting obligation of Convention on the Rights of the Child UNCRC The sub theme Building Awareness and Capacity focuses on building the awareness of the general public to seek popular support and enabling civil society organizations networks and child clubs to organize and collectively act to promote lobby and advocate for compliance with child rights Key findings 1 The government of Nepal has recognized and formally adopted various initiatives that SC Nepal has contributed towards such as integration of Child Rights Officers CROs and Village Child Protection Committee VCPC in the national mechanisms and institutionalization of child rights and child participation formally within national provisions 2 District Child Welfare Boards DCWBs the mechanism supported by SC Nepal together with other partners are increasingly accessing local resources which gives indication of progress towards continued functioning and access of the state s child rights mechanisms 3 Increased political interest at the national and international level and an increasing sphere of engagement of national actors in the monitoring and reporting process including building up capacity among the agencies engaged in lobby and monitoring further indicate sustainability of the child rights monitoring processes 4 Considerable progress towards institutionalizing the process of CRC reporting within civil society for supplementary reporting can also be noted as major milestones the CRC reporting now is more collaborative with wider participation consolidated where earlier it was fragmented and with increased involvement of children with progress towards child led reporting 5 There is also indication that the government is increasingly committed to regularizing the CRC and UPR reporting hence indicating potential for institutionalizing the CRC reporting within government mechanisms as well in future 6 The increased political attention placed on the UPR process and acceptance of the recommendation 31 out of the 34 also need to be noted as key results The process was instrumental in opening up dialogue among government and civil society actors other member states and the NHRC regarding the child rights situation in Nepal and it also speeded up the follow up action such as passage of the Child Rights Bill and review of the National Plan of Action for Children Increased awareness and capacity of the civil society organizations and the Child Clubs to lobby and advocate for child rights were also instrumental in achieving the results discussed above Constraints 1 Progress beyond the outcomes noted at the systemic level may be difficult to achieve Achieving results beyond system level which impacts the lives of children sustainably is a challenge in a country context like Nepali given socio cultural and economic constraints Any long term impact would require major social and political reforms in terms of addressing power dynamics and structural inequalities which stretch beyond any specific policy and system reform See recommendations below Recommendations 1 Strengthen national monitoring mechanisms with consolidated reporting so that continued surveillance monitoring can be undertaken given the fact that cases might not always be reported in the Nepalese context and hence the government mechanism needs

  • Food Security In A Climate Perspective Annual Report 2013 - norad.no
    people by 2050 food production needs to increase by approximately 70 percent At the same time climate change may seriously impede important parts of global food production Economic growth also translates into a higher demand for animal proteins With more mouths to feed demanding more resource intensive diets the ecological footprint of agriculture also needs to be reduced in order to meet climate policy goals This will require large and sustained efforts by the global community How the world can feed a growing population in a manner that advances economic development reduces pressure on the environment and adapts to climate change is a challenge described as a great balancing act by a recent World Resources Report This balancing act will be more acutely felt in some areas particularly rural Africa where rates of food insecurity and poverty are already high To address poverty agriculture needs to grow in ways that provide economic opportunities to the poor Roughly two billion people are employed in agriculture and many of them are poor and food insecure The majority of agricultural workers fish processors and vendors in many developing countries are women Raising women s income has disproportionate benefits for alleviating hunger and improving the livelihoods of children and families Assisting women in their food production and marketing is therefore a particularly effective way to reduce poverty and enhance food security Tweet Food Security In A Climate Perspective Annual Report 2013 Bestill Gratis Dine bestillinger Relaterte artikler Ny rapport om matsikkerhet Norad Direktoratet for utviklingssamarbeid 2011 Besøksadresse Ruseløkkveien 26 0251 Oslo Postadresse Pb 8034 Dep 0030 Oslo Sentralbord 23 98 00 00 E post postmottak norad no Kontakt oss Om bistand Slik er norsk bistand organisert Norsk utviklingspolitikk Samarbeidspartnere Norsk bistand i tall Landsider Tusenårsmålene Bistandseffektivitet Bistandswiki Tallenes tale Nøkkeltall Bærekraftsmålene Om Norad Strategi
