  13. By Joe McCarthy FEB. 26, 2020 FOOD & HUNGER This Seed Bank in the Arctic Holds More Than 1 Million Seeds “It’s really just the tip of the iceberg of a global conservation effort.” Why Global Citizens Should Care The Svalbard Global Seed Vault safeguards the world’s food supply. The United Nations’ Global Goal 2 calls on countries to end hunger by, among other things, improving agricultural production. You can join us in taking action on related issues here. Far up in the Arctic, a seed bank chiseled into a mountain received 60,000 seeds of different crop varieties on Tuesday as part of its mission to safeguard the world’s food supply. The Svalbard Global Seed Vault, located on Norway’s Svalbard archipelago, received the seeds from 35 institutions during the landmark deposit. The seed bank now holds more than 1 million seeds, representing more than 5,000 crop species from 85 different depositors. The seeds represent widely grown vegetables and herbs, as well as obscure plants and wild varieties, according to the Global Crop Diversity Trust. The Cherokee Nation in the United States deposited squash and beans, the United Kingdom delivered wild oats and barley, and 68 types of rice came from Thailand. The World Vegetable Center handed over seeds for quirky-sounding crops like snake gourd and butterfly pea. Brought to you by: IFAD Take the Quiz: What Does Climate Change Have to Do With Fighting Hunger? PASA A LA ACCIÓN Más información The deposit event was hosted by Erna Solberg, prime minister of Norway and Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, president of Ghana, both of whom are co-chairs of the United Nations group of sustainable development goals (SDG) advocates. “This deposit event is especially timely, given that 2020 is the deadline for meeting target 2.5 of SDG 2 on zero hunger, which calls on the international community to safeguard the genetic diversity of crops and livestock,” Solberg said in a statement. The deposit was the largest to date in terms of the number of institutions involved and is the first since a major update to the facility in 2019, following structural damage when permafrost in the region unexpectedly melted and flooded its entrance. “The seed vault is a backup,” Cierra Martin, communications officer at the Global Crop Diversity Trust, an organization that supports seed banks, told Global Citizen. “It acts as a safety deposit box, only depositors can take seeds out.” Organizations that collect seeds around the world can store them in Svalbard for safekeeping. “It’s a really iconic piece of our work,” Martin said. “But it’s just the tip of the iceberg of a global conservation effort that happens 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for the 1,700 seed banks that tend to biodiversity.” Related StoriesMarch 26, 2019Temperatures Near So-Called 'Doomsday Vault' Are Rising 3 Times Faster Than Rest of World The Svalbard Seed Bank is a library of global agricultural achievement. Modern agriculture is the result of 10,000 years of trial and error, cross breeding and trade, research and luck. For all of the staple crops that are shared across borders and valued in the global marketplace, agriculture is still marked by regional peculiarity. The soil quality, weather conditions, and climate of any given location, combined with the cultural preferences of local communities, means that agriculture takes many different forms. Seed banks are meant to keep a record of this diversity, safeguard the global food supply, and promote further innovation and collaboration. And the Svalbard Global Seed Vault is at the forefront of this global effort. Launched in 2008, the seed bank is located deep in a remote region of the Arctic to prevent outside forces, whether natural or man-made, from harming the seeds. Related StoriesFeb. 9, 2020This Organization Is Empowering Millions of Small Farmers to Fight Hunger and Lift Themselves Out of Poverty “Worldwide, there are a lot of different threats to agriculture, from defending against natural disasters to climate change to civil war,” Martin said. “If something happens to your core collection, then you can lose valuable material for good.” Martin said that a seed bank in Aleppo containing more than 155,000 seed varieties was nearly lost during the Syrian civil war, but its contents were successfully transferred to Svalbard in 2008, allowing the facility to rebound. She said that the seed bank can help organizations have peace of mind that crop varieties will remain safe even during catastrophic events. Climate change, in particular, threatens to diminish global agriculture, making it harder to grow certain crops and harder for certain regions to foster food production. There’s also the more gradual threat of food standardization — of multinational farmers choosing to invest in highly profitable, easy-to-grow crops rather than opting for variety. In the US, for example, farms have lost 93% of their crop diversity over the course of 80 years. These trends are spurring greater awareness of the importance of seed banks, Martin said. “The conversation around food is definitely increasing, people are starting to question how their food is produced, whether its sustainable,” she said. “People are talking about farm to fork; we want them to think about seed bank to fork.” Related StoriesJuly 26, 2019Here's What It Will Take to Feed 10 Billion People by 2050 TOPICSEnvironmentCurrent eventsClimate changeAgricultureFood & hungerSeedsSvalbard Global Seed VaultSvalbardSeed bank

  16. From: Thomson Reuters Foundation FEB. 26, 2020 CITIZENSHIP 232 Sex Trafficking Survivors Rescued by Niger Police The victims were forced into sex work in hostels and slums or sent to beg at markets. By Nellie Peyton DAKAR, Feb 26 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) — Police in Niger have rescued 232 victims of sex trafficking and forced labor, including girls as young as 10, in a major operation in the capital Niamey, Interpol said on Wednesday. "Operation Sarraounia" involved more than 100 police officers who conducted a series of raids over 10 days in late January, said the global police organization, which provided assistance. The victims included 46 children, mostly locals forced into sex work in hostels and slums, and 180 Ghanaian men who were promised jobs online and then enslaved for forced labor. Firma: Apoya a la generación de la igualdad 33.544 / 50.000 acciones realizadas PASA A LA ACCIÓN Más información Police also arrested 18 suspected traffickers. Niger is a source, destination, and transit country for human trafficking, with thousands of migrants passing through each year en route to North Africa and Western Europe. The country cracked down on migration in 2016 under pressure from the European Union, but experts say this increased the risk of exploitation for migrants by forcing them to move in secret. "It's bad enough when you have transportation of illicit goods, but these are real people with real ambitions," said Stephen Kavanagh, Interpol's executive director of police services. "We have to remember the families that they thought they were going to support by finding employment — and then suddenly they were enslaved," he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. Related StoriesSept. 20, 2018Human Traffickers Are Advertising Openly on Facebook and, Tragically, Children Get a Discount The men from Ghana had been recruited online with the promise of "decent work," said Interpol, but when they arrived in Niger, they were locked up and their documents confiscated. The children were mostly from Niger. In addition to those used for sex work, others were taken from their families and forced to beg at markets and bus stations. In 2019, Niger increased trafficking convictions and trained more law enforcement officers than in previous years, earning it an upgrade on the Unites States' closely watched Trafficking in Persons (TIP) annual report. But it still does not meet the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking, said the US government, calling on the state to increase victim services and access to justice. "Operation Sarraounia has shed much light on several criminal groups and trafficking routes," said Niger's police chief Barka Dankassoua in a statement from Interpol.

  19. In 2016, internationally recognized and award winning photographer, Philip Grossman, opened his solo exhibition, "Chernobyl: Tragedy, Lessons, Hope" at the United Nations as part of their 30th Anniversary events for the Chernobyl catastrophe. Former New Zealand Prime Minister, Helen Clark, and Minster of Foreign Affairs for Belarus, Vladimir Makei, graciously opened the exhibition and spoke about the importance of Philip's work documenting the aftermath of the catastrophe. Philip is now making a set of limited edition prints from this exhibition available for purchase through his website and will be donating 50% of the proceeds to Chernobyl Children International. Each photograph is custom printed, signed, dated, and numbered.
