UNICEF in Emergencies & Humanitarian Action - Searching for creative solutions in humanitarian action

UNICEF in Emergencies & Humanitarian Action - Searching for creative solutions in humanitarian action | UNICEF Mali yearly (juin-septembre 2013) | Scoop.it

NEW YORK, United States of America, 21 October 2013 – What if vaccines could tell us their exact location and temperature in real time as they are transported along the cold chain? What if aid agencies could use a virtual marketplace to let beneficiaries determine which emergency supplies and services they need most? How can we use SMS and Twitter to map threats to children and track the delivery of aid to communities in crisis? Can indelible ink be used to help deter gender-based violence and identify perpetrators?

 

These were some of the concepts discussed when UNICEF brought together humanitarian field staff, partner agencies and technology and design experts to brainstorm on innovation for children in humanitarian action.

 

The ‘lab’ was not a laboratory in the traditional sense, but rather a space for colleagues to collaborate face-to-face and with open minds in working towards new solutions in humanitarian action.

UNICEF - Press centre - UNICEF on Global Handwashing Day: A simple solution with far-reaching benefits – the power is in our hands

UNICEF - Press centre - UNICEF on Global Handwashing Day: A simple solution with far-reaching benefits – the power is in our hands | UNICEF Mali yearly (juin-septembre 2013) | Scoop.it

NEW YORK, 15 October 2013 – As the world observes the 6th annual Global Handwashing Day, new figures from UNICEF say 1,400 children under five still die every day from diarrhoeal diseases caused by a lack of safe water, sanitation and basic hygiene.

“The simple act of handwashing with soap is one of the most effective ways to save children’s lives,” said Sanjay Wijesekera, global head of UNICEF’s Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) programmes. “Washing hands before eating and after defecation drastically reduces the spread of diarrhoeal disease and has far reaching effects on the health and welfare of children and communities.”

Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013 is World Teachers Day, a day to appreciate teachers, but also to reflect on the direction education is headed around the world.

The United Nations explains the need for a global teachers day: “Teachers are producing global citizens, so they are global teachers, who need to situate their advances on a global level. WTD [World Teachers Day] is an opportunity to rethink national issues facing teachers from an international perspective, to benchmark progress made by national teachers in a global context.”
