BARAZA LA TAIFA LA UWEZESHAJI WANANCHI KIUCHUMI LACHOCHEA UBORA WA UTENGENEZAJI SAMANI NCHINI

KAMPUNI ya Furniture Centre (FCDL), na Shirikisho la Watengenezaji Samani Nchini (TAWOFE), wamesaini makubaliano (MoU) kuongeza ubora wa bidhaa za samani zinazotengenezwa nchini na kuzifanya zipate soko ndani na nje ya nchi.

Makubaliano haya yamekamilika ikiwa ni sehemu ya utekelezaji wa Sera ya Taifa ya Uwezeshaji Wananchi Kiuchumi ikiwa ni mwendelezo wa Tathimini iliyofanywa na Baraza la Taifa la Uwezeshaji Wananchi Kiuchumi kwa mkoa wa Dar es Salaam na mikoa ya jirani, katika kuiwezesha sekta ya Samani nchini kupitia vikundi na makampuni ya ndani.

Tathimini hiyo ya Baraza ya mwaka 2008, ilijikita katika kubaini mahitaji na changamoto zinazoikabili sekta ya samani hapa nchini. Baraza liliweza kuandaa warsha iliyohudhuriwa na wadau mbalimbali na ambapo matokeo ya tathmini hiyo yaliwasilishwa na kupelekea kuundwa kwa shirikisho la watengenezaji samani nchini (TAWOFE).

Washirika hao walisaini makubaliano hayo katika  hafla iliyoshuhudiwa na Waziri wa Nchi Ofisi ya Waziri Mkuu (Uwezeshaji na Uwekezaji), Dk Mary Nagu.

Akizungumza katika hafla hiyo, Katibu Mtendaji wa Baraza la Taifa la Uwezeshaji Wananchi Kiuchumi, Dk Anacleti Kashuliza, alisema pamoja na kuwepo kwa fursa kubwa ya soko la samani hapa nchini bado ushiriki wa vikundi na makampuni ya ndani katika soko hilo ni mdogo sana kulinganisha na samani zinazoagizwa kutoka  nje ya nchi.

Alisema tunatoa wito kwa taasisi za Umma na Binafsi  ziunge mkono jitihada hizi kwa kununua samani toka kwa watengenezaji samani  wa ndani na ili kuwapa ushirikiano zaidi utakaowezesha kuimarisha sekta ya samani zitengenezwazo ndani ya nchi.

Kwa upande wake, Mwenyekiti wa TAWOFE, Bw Fredrick Waibi, alielezea makubaliano kati ya FCDL na TAWOFE ni mkakati mzuri utaomjengea uwezo fundi seremala kuweza kutengeneza bidhaa zitakazoweza kukubalika kimataifa, kuongeza tija kazini na kupunguza umaskini kati ya mafundi seremala.


Naye Mkurugenzi Mkuu wa FCDL, Bw Shafik Bhatia, alisema kama wadau muhimu wa samani nchini wameona umuhimu na wanajivunia  kushirikiana na TAWOFE katika kuboresha huduma za samani nchini .

Ten young film crews. Ten inspiring climate films

Bernardo Bertolucci heads up the distinguished jury that chose the winners of the Action4Climate documentary competition

WASHINGTON, October 31, 2014/ -- Ten young film crews from ten different countries were chosen as winners in the Action4Climate documentary competition (http://www.connect4climate.org). Their outstanding and unique films inspire the world to take action on climate change.

“These talented young film makers connect to their audience in emotional and powerful ways about the dangers of climate change. They have done serious, important work, which shows that climate change could result in a world that is unrecognizable today, and that we need act now to protect the planet for future generations.”  Jim Yong Kim, President, World Bank Group

The Action4Climate competition was launched in early 2014 by Connect4Climate (www.connect4climate.org), the global climate change communications program. It attracted hundreds of entries from all around the world. Italian film director and screenwriter, Bernardo Bertolucci, chaired a renowned jury of film makers tasked with choosing winning films in two age categories.

“We were amazed by the originality of the stories and the genuine concern shown by these young film makers about the effects of climate change. They described the effects of climate change from hundreds of different points of view. Selecting winners was an almost impossible task.”  Bernardo Bertolucci

In the 18 -35 age category, the $15,000 top prize went to the Portuguese film maker Gonçalo Tocha with his provocative film “The Trail of a Tale”. This inspiring story revolves around a letter written in the future to society today. Dobrin Kashavelov from Bulgaria won second place cash prizes of $10,000 with “Global Warning,” a harrowing film about the catastrophic effects on survivors of last year’s typhoon Haiyan in the

Philippines. Third place $5,000 prize was awarded to American filmmaker Nathan Dappen for “Snows of the Nile”, a documentary following Nathan’s adventures uncovering indisputable evidence of the fast disappearing glaciers of Uganda’s ‘mountains of the moon’.   

“I am immensely proud to be chosen as the winner and really hope my film helps people realize that we need to act now to protect our future.” Gonçalo Tocha

In the younger 14 -17 age group, “The Violin Player” took top spot. This beautifully animated film was the brainchild of Francina Ramos, a young Argentinian film maker and her co-producer/composer Benjamin Braceras. Second place went to “Facing the Flood” by Constantin Huet from Switzerland, an investigative account of the changing conditions in Greenland and the Maldives. Georgia’s Tura Tegerashivili was awarded third place for the whimsical “It’s Easy if You Try”. All prize winners receive production equipment and software to help them hone their skills and talents and inspire them to create more climate change stories.

“What an amazing honor! I am so excited. I hope The Violin Player makes people want to stand up and tackle climate change.” Francina Ramos

The jury is made up of filmmakers Atom Egoyan, Marc Forster, Mika Kaurismaki, Fernando Meirelles, Mira Nair, Bob Rafelson, Walter Salles, Pablo Trapero and Wim Wenders, along with film executives Rose Kuo and Cynthia Lopez, and World Bank Vice President and Special Envoy for Climate Change, Rachel Kyte.  They felt the standard in the competition was so high that a special prize was awarded to “Balud” by Panx Solajes from the Philippines, for his creative personal reflection devastating floods caused by climate change.

Connect4Climate also decided that two submissions should be recognized for their ability to present local stories that also have a profound global impact. Special Connect4Climate prizes are awarded to “Tinau” from UK/Kiribati producer Victoria Burns, exploring the grave concerns of small island nations such as Kiribati, and “The Change,” a touching portrayal of the effects on young people in a Vietnamese coastal community made by filmmakers Ha Uyen, Huong Tra, Quang Dung and Quang Phuc. A People’s Choice Prize voted for by the public was won by a team from Brazil for their film “Pachamama” depicting the effects of global warming in Sao Paulo.

Prizes for the competition were graciously provided by Edison, the Italian power company, and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. In addition, Vimeo, the video sharing website, is enthusiastically donating Vimeo Plus accounts for one year to all the finalists from developing countries.

The winners will be announced on October 30th at the Sustainia “100 Solutions” Award Ceremony in the Royal Theater, Copenhagen, celebrating the creation of new solutions for sustainable living. The general public can then see a selection of videos from winners and finalists online and on television, as well as at festivals and events.

“Connect4Climate was tremendously excited by the amount of interest shown in the competition from around the world. It demonstrates the level of concern shown by creative young people and their desire to be involved directly in exposing climate problems and finding lasting solutions. We were also gratified to experience the seamless coming together of international organizations, the private sector and civil society to support and promote the competition ”  Lucia Grenna, Program Manager, Connect4Climate

It is envisaged that the high standard of the Action4Climate documentaries will help promote greater climate change awareness and inspire viewers to action.

Na Mwandishi wetu, Zanzibar
Zaidi ya watoto 3000 waliokuwa wakikabiliwa na utapiamlo nchini Zanzibar sasa wapo katika hali nzuri baada ya Umoja wa Mataifa (UN)kwa kushirikiana na wadau wengine kufanikisha programu ya kusaidia kukabili utapiamlo mkali kwa watoto hao.

kauli hiyo imetolewa katika mkutano wa Mashirika ya Umoja wa Mataifa na waandishi wa habari uliofanyika hivi karibuni ambapo UN ilielezea mafanikio ya mradi wa kusaidia maendeleo nchini Tanzania (UNDAP) ulioanza mwaka 2011 na sasa ukiwa ukingoni.
Mratibu Mkazi wa mashirika ya Umoja wa Mataifa na mwakilishi wa Shirika la Maendeleo la Umoja wa Mataifa (UNDP) nchini, Alvaro Rodriguez alisema kwamba Umoja huo ukiadhimisha miaka 69 ya uwepo wake imefurahishwa na maendeleo yaliyopatikana katika maeneo ambayo ilikuwa imejikita kusaidia kukabili umaskini,kuhakikisha utawala bora na kusaidia jamii.

Alisema pamoja na kuendeleza na juhudi za kukabiliana na utapiamlo katika visiwa vya Pemba pia Umoja huo umefurahishwa na hatua zilizofikia katika kukabiliana na vifo vya mama na mtoto na kusema ni wajibu kuhakikisha watoto hawana matatizo ya utapiamlo kwani wao ndio msingi wa taifa la sasa na lijalo.

Alisema hata hivyo upo umuhimu wa kuendelea na washirika wengine wa maendeleo kuona kwamba tatizo la utapiamlo la visiwa vya Pemba kwa watoto linamalizwa.
