– plans to intensify sensitisation campaigns, communication activities in progressIn order to become eligible for millions of dollars in cash to mitigate the effects of climate change, Guyana is forging ahead with various consultations and sensitisation workshops both locally and internationally but much more work needs to be done to sensitise the populace.Although such efforts are to be lauded, like many initiatives there are difficulties to be encountered and at this point, one of the major challenges is the fact that stakeholders have limited knowledge about the Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) fund worth US$650 million.This is according to Thomas Scheutzlich, a consultant for Global CAD, who was giving an overview of the work his firm has done so far at a Natural Resources Ministry press conference on Thursday.He explained that, sadly, stakeholders, as well as communities that are surrounding forested areas along with those that are intended to reap benefits from REDD+ incentives, are also lacking in knowledge of the initiative.From surveys conducted by Global CAD in conjunction with the Natural Resources Ministry in 2018, data revealed that only about 51 per cent of organisations from Region Four knew about REDD+.Meanwhile, in the outlying communities, in the hinterland areas, where villages depend on the forest for a living, the percentage in unfamiliarity of the topic was higher.Global CAD Consultant Thomas ScheutzlichScheutzlich said that 64 per cent had no idea of the initiative. However, plans are moving apace to correct this situation and in the upcoming months, more focus is going to be placed on communicating much more with stakeholders and indigenous communities.The German consultant stated that in the next few months, communication activities and sensitisation events will be ramped up throughout most, if not all, regions across the country.Come December 2019, a three-year programme to build Guyana’s capacity will end. This US$3.8 million project involves help from the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank.Meanwhile, there have been ongoing consultations in seven regions with more meetings scheduled.REDD in Guyana is intrinsically linked with the development and implementation of the Low Carbon Development Strategy and the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Norway is currently the only source of finance through which the LCDS will be implemented although other financing sources may be harnessed as they become available.The MoU establishes a framework for REDD payments into the Guyana REDD+ Investment Fund (GRIF) which funds projects under the LCDS.The LCDS initiative was aggressively pursued under the former Administration despite the criticisms that came from the then Opposition, the APNU/AFC coalition.

Deputy Thomas Pringle has today expressed his anger at the Government’s negative campaigning on the upcoming referendum, describing their approach as “Machiavellian”.Speaking at Leaders’ Questions to the Tánaiste on the matter, the Independent TD for Donegal South-West outlined his concerns.“Doubt about future funding is the stick that this Government is using to beat the Irish people into submission on May 31st.” Deputy Pringle put forward that “If the EFSF funding will not be available, why then did European heads of state in a statement on March 30th state that any member state in a programme will be funded up to the point that they can return to the markets?“Applications for this funding can be made until the end of June 2013 – this is where Ireland is currently getting its funding from and therefore will not be considered a new applicant when the ESM is due to take effect, so we will not be subject to its conditionality for future funding.”He said Michael Noonan has said himself that there is a commitment that European authorities will continue to supply countries that are in programmes with money even when the programme is concluded, providing they fulfil the conditions of that programme.“This situation has not changed; the Government would just like us to think that it has in order for this Treaty to be passed. “The fact is that regardless of the Treaty vote, Ireland is guaranteed funding under the current programme – as long as it meets its targets. A Yes or No vote will not change this” said Pringle.He added “The Government is scaremongering the people of Ireland into voting Yes by making threats which are simply untrue. It certainly says a lot when these bully-boy tactics are what is being resorted to in an attempt to get this referendum passed.“Regardless of the outcome of this referendum, the people deserve to know the truth about our funding situation, something which the Government has so far denied us.“Ireland will not fall into a black hole of funding uncertainty if people decide to vote No. In fact, the uncertainty lies if we become subject to the dire fiscal regulations of the Treaty” stated Pringle.PRINGLE SLAMS GOVERNMENT’S ‘NEGATIVE’ CAMPAIGNING ON REFERENDUM was last modified: May 3rd, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Deputy Thomas PringleFISCAL TREATY
Nouvelles nationales de l’APTNMichèle Audette aura eu l’occasion de se présenter deux fois sous la bannière libérale au cours des présentes élections. Elle le fera dans la circonscription de Terrebonne, en banlieue de Montréal. Ses rivaux sont le bloquiste Michel Boudrias, le conservateur Michel Surprenant et la députée NPD sortante Charmaine Borg, qui n’avait que 20 ans lorsque la vague orange néo-démocrate a déferlé sur le Québec en 2011.Mme Audette est née dans la communauté innue de Mani-Utenam, près de Sept-Îles, au Québec. Elle n’était cependant pas considérée comme une Indienne de plein droit, sa mère s’étant mariée avec un non autochtone. Ce n’est qu’en 2010 qu’elle a obtenu le statut d’Indienne. Selon une biographie (en anglais), c’est cette injustice qui l’a poussée vers l’activisme. Âgée d’à peine 16 ans, Mme Audette s’est impliquée comme bénévole au Centre d’amitié autochtone de Montréal pour défendre la cause des femmes des Premières Nations du Canada. Michèle Audette n’est certainement pas une étrangère pour le public du réseau APTN. Les auditoires d’APTN National News et de Nation to Nation ont pu se familiariser avec elle alors qu’elle était présidente à la fois de l’Association des femmes autochtones du Québec et de l’Association des femmes autochtones du Canada (AFAC). Mme Audette est bien connue pour sa défense de longue date de la cause des femmes autochtones assassinées et disparues. Dans le cadre du programme Sœurs par l’esprit–et son successeur, De la preuve à l’action, l’AFAC a commencé à dénombrer le nombre de cas de femmes disparues et assassinées au Canada. Mme Audette s’est démenée auprès de la GRC pour amener cette dernière à reconnaître les chiffres compilés et auprès du gouvernement conservateur pour faire financer leurs efforts. Cette lutte est racontée en détail dans ce long article de Ken Jackson, d’APTN National News. C’est le refus de Stephen Harper de tenir une enquête nationale sur les femmes assassinées et disparues qui a convaincu Mme Audette de se lancer sur la scène politique fédérale. « Je me plaignais », a‑t-elle confié au Globe and Mail il y a plus d’un an. « Alors, je me suis dit, pourquoi ne pas me faire entendre à l’intérieur du système? »Sa première tentative fut dans la circonscription de Manicouagan, où se trouve sa communauté natale. Toutefois, à l’assemblée de mise en candidature en mars, elle a perdu lors d’un vote très serré remporté par Mario Tremblay. Cela aurait pu donner lieu à une course captivante puisque le candidat néo-démocrate sortant là-bas est Jonathan‑Genest‑Jourdain, également innu. Après avoir perdu de justesse, elle avait à l’époque dit à APTN que la météo défavorable et les bulletins de vote postaux perdus ou retardés avaient joué en sa défaveur.En mai, elle a laissé entendre au Soleil qu’elle envisageait un retour en politique et qu’elle avait reçu l’offre de briguer les suffrages ailleurs au Québec. Par conséquent, ce ne fut pas une grande surprise quand le Parti libéral a annoncé le mois dernier la candidature de Michèle Audette à Terrebonne. Bien qu’il s’agisse d’une nouvelle circonscription, Terrebonne est constitué d’autres territoires qui, jusqu’à la vague orange néo-démocrate de 2011, élisaient régulièrement des députés bloquistes. Michèle Audette correspond à la définition d’une candidate parachutée, et bien qu’elle souhaite représenter les citoyens de la banlieue de Montréal, elle a avoué à Ici Radio-Canada que Manicouagan reste dans son cœur. Elle devra surmonter le fait qu’elle vient de l’extérieur et tirer parti de la grande jeunesse de Mme Borg si elle veut avoir une chance de livrer personnellement son message sur les femmes assassinées et disparues à Ottawa.
