Creeping desertification, compromised forests, diminishing water resources, damaged ecosystems, and natural disasters threaten not only Morocco’s rich biodiversity but also the livelihoods, well-being, and health of its people. Morocco is the energy pioneer on the African continent, one of the first to champion renewable energy (RE) and to align economic development with environmental protection and sustainability. 4. Accelerate implementation of RE projects.Integration of development agendas into energy planning and policy has been limited, and the financial support and incentives for smaller projects are less developed. Governments, policymakers, and regulators need to speed up strategies for bringing RE projects to fruition. Frameworks promoting and attracting RE investment and R&D Discussions and multi-participant workshops with local and international experts have been essential to the foundation’s current work in this area. The HAF has assessed the current state of energy sector development and decentralisation and offer here a way forward. AFD and Eskom commit to a competitive electricity sector Low carbon, solar future could increase jobs in the future – SAPVIA The mission of the High Atlas Foundation (HAF) as a facilitator is to gather experts from academia, civil society, public and private sectors, and legislators willing to move forward and bring meaningful policy reform through proactive and decisive participation. Humankind faces the unprecedented challenge of existing on the warmest earth we have known. A lack of political will and societal awareness has inhibited the necessary, vigorous change to meet this challenge. About the authorsKerstin Opfer is a Policy Advisor with Germanwatch.

RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The way forward for Morocco to mobilise decentralised energy 1. Enhance cooperation across sectors. Economic, private, civil, scientific, and other sectors must coordinate expectations and share information for the level of transformation that no one could accomplish alone. HAF and Germanwatch e.V. launched an initiative in 2019 to create such a cross-sectoral partnership for the decentralised energy transition in Morocco. Enhanced integration of administrative tiers and ministries following this model could enable the exchange of best practices. BRICS Becoming a world climate leader with a different model for energy and electricity issues requires policy and regulatory frameworks as well as new forms of cooperation and investments opportunities. Setting clear political goals is essential to secure investments, stakeholders’ mobilisation, and resources allocation. A strong political will is indispensable for driving the decentralisation of renewable energy. Photo by Victoriano Izquierdo on Unsplash The High Atlas Foundation’s assessment has shown that decentralisation of Morocco’s energy transition requires the following measures: Decentralisation is an integral part of Morocco’s policy agendas, with frameworks for doing so productively, inclusively, and equitably. Some frameworks include:– the National Initiative for Human Development (INDH), which provides sub-nationally managed funding for local development projects;– the Municipal Charter, which requires locally-elected representatives to create participatory development plans for local projects; – the Decentralisation Roadmap, which integrates the three pillars of devolution, deconcentration, and delegation; – the Decentralisation Charter, submitted by the government at the request of King Mohammed VI, ideally intended to bind national and regional government agencies to specific functions in administering human services; and – the newly-ratified Constitution in 2011, which further enshrined the right of citizens’ participation in decision-making processes with decentralisation, transparency, and good governance. Finance and Policy It has set in place a considerable number of green energy initiatives, including two ambitious programs for solar and wind power. Knowledge and expertise within Morocco are thus among the most profound within the continent, and the attractive investment climate has lowered costs for alternative energy. In conclusion, Morocco has an enormous opportunity to address the climate crisis. Large-scale implementation of renewables is indispensable to meet Morocco’s energy needs, but they should be accompanied by small-scale RE solutions to help reduce poverty. 5. Raise awareness about readily available financial support.A credit line specific to RE or an appropriate framework for successful financing is lacking. Information about decentralised, small-scale, and people-centred approaches and their associated benefits is necessary to help mobilise support and make funding easily accessible for local communities. Investment promotion measures are also needed to encourage public-private partnerships to share investment costs, risks, and benefits and to attract both domestic and foreign investors in climate finance. North Africa is one of the world’s most vulnerable regions to climate change, experiencing severe environmental degradation. Morocco is no exception. Several large-scale projects have been initiated, but small-scale projects remain insufficient to enable a successful transition to 100% RE. Morocco’s promotion of decentralisation acknowledges the peoples’ will to participate in decision-making and manage their own affairs, but these have not been significantly applied throughout the country. Sign up for the ESI Africa newsletter 3. Improve management of people-centred initiatives.The decentralisation charter establishes clear parameters for how the national and regional levels work together but are less clear about the role of provinces and municipalities. Since regional public administrative centres remain distant from dispersed communities, clarity about their functions and responsibilities within the decentralization context will help action-planning and decision-making for all sectors and tiers. Electricity demand has increased dramatically from population growth, economic development, and near-universal access – necessitating foreign imports to meet demand. Morocco has set ambitious targets, with institutional and legal frameworks for RE attracting national and international investment, research and innovation. 2. Strengthen regional agreements to cooperatively address challenges.Morocco promotes South-South cooperation and has already established economic partnerships and significantly strengthened political ties with other African countries. Many national agencies are already operating in several African countries. Morocco’s exports to these countries have quintupled over a decade, making it a hub for RE-based electricity, trade, capacity-building, and innovation. Strengthening this regional cooperation will increase investment interest and opportunities for companies seeking entry into the African market, lowering interest rates and inflation while maximising production. Morocco’s energy sector is highly carbon-intensive and heavily dependent on energy imports, affected by fluctuations in price and supply.

Despite Consistent experience of high growth, India still goes with the lowest indicators of human development, which makes balanced and inclusive development look elusive.India ranked 131 on 2020 Human Development Index out of 189 countries released by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). India’s national development schemes like Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, Swachh Bharat, Make in India, and initiatives aimed at universalizing school education and health care might have accelerated marginal movements in the HDI driven by changes in health, education and income but that doesn’t posit any balanced and inclusive development which looks elusive for the following reasons:1) Issues of structural transformation for economic diversification.2) Pace and pattern of growth are not broad-based across sectors.3) Focus on income redistribution rather than productive employment.4) Firm is the subject of analysis, but not the individual.5) Lack of inclusiveness which refers to equality of opportunity apropos of access to markets, resources and fair regulatory environment for companies, trades and individuals.These issues have implications for what Shinzo Abe once said, “Human security recognizes the importance of individuals and that the key to ensuring growth in developing countries is to foster individual talent and abilities, build self-reliance, and put people in a position to make a broader contribution to society. Growth must be inclusive, and no one must be left behind.”There is a growing divergence in the relationship between poverty and hunger in India. The shrinking of social expenditure by the government is forcing the poor to spend more on non-food essential items squeezing their food-budget.Hunger and malnourishment are the most serious of all the problems associated with the poverty condition. Spending on social services in India doesn’t target deprivation since that requires huge social expenditure. Because of this people are being left behind across three key dimensions: health, education and standard of living (compulsory rental). They have to spend more on them to survive, which reduces their food spending, consequently, makes them enter into a vicious cycle of the poverty trap in which hunger is inherent.The unprofessional conduct of public expenditure management and fragmented budgets are obstacles to the achievement of poverty reduction objectives since they do not let the country strengthen its social infrastructure by investing in health and education even when it is emerging as a knowledge-based economy.National Food Security Act (NFSA) 2013 alone can’t lead to Sustainable Development Goal 2 – Zero Hunger, if that could be a possibility then India would not have been ranked at 94 among 107 countries on the Global Hunger Index 2020.

Following a hard-fought battle with the United States, the Canadian Dressage Team claimed the silver medal on Sunday, July 12, at the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games. Dressage competition is taking place July 11, 12, and 14 at the OLG Caledon Pan Am Equestrian Park in Caledon, ON.Brittany Fraser of New Glasgow, NS, Megan Lane of Collingwood, ON, Belinda Trussell of Stouffville, ON, and Chris von Martels of Ridgetown, ON, earned the team silver medal for Canada in front of a home crowd. With a final score of 460.506 points, the United States claimed the gold medal – and the only qualifying spot available for the 2016 Rio Olympics – over Canada with 454.938. Brazil (414.895), already pre-qualified for the Olympics as the home nation, narrowly edged out Mexico (412.467) for the team bronze.Two days of competition held July 11 and 12 determined the team standings. Fraser and von Martels contested the small tour level for Canada while Lane and Trussell competed at grand prix, a new requirement for Olympic eligibility that was introduced at the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games. A total of 10 countries contested the team medals, with Argentina, Canada, Mexico and the United States eligible for Olympic qualification.Fraser and von Martels both produced strong performances for Team Canada in the Intermediaire I test. Riding Zilverstar, an 11-year-old bay Dutch Warmblood gelding sired by Rosseau, von Martels earned an impressive score of 76.210% from the judges, which ranked him third overall in Sunday’s competition.“It was a very good test; it was personal best again,” said von Martels, 32, who is making his major games debut. “He’s going so well at the moment. We’ve focused a lot over the last month and a half to prepare for these Games. He’s peaking at the right point. We are thrilled.”For the second day in a row, Fraser produced a world-class performance for Canada riding All In to place just behind von Martels with a score of 76.079%. Strong trot and canter work were highlights for Fraser and the 10-year-old liver chestnut Dutch Warmblood gelding (Tango x Damiro) that she owns in partnership with Marc-Andre Beaulieu.“It was awesome, just like yesterday,” said Fraser, 26. “My horse did it again, and I’m really happy. We are so close with the U.S., and we all wanted to give really great performances.”Of her successful Pan Am Games debut, Fraser said, “It was amazing! It was like a dream come true. There is so much work that is involved in getting here, and it really pays off in the end. It’s crazy! The amount of support I’ve been getting is really incredible. I’m so thankful for that.”Lane and Trussell both contested the Grand Prix Special. The youngest member of the Canadian Dressage Team, Lane, 24, earned a score of 71.392% riding Caravella, a 14-year-old bay Dutch Warmblood mare (Contango x Riverman) owned by the athlete and her mother, Cathy Lane.“I think I have the best team that I could ask for,” said Lane, who is based 10 minutes from the OLG Caledon Equestrian Park at Deer Ridge Equestrian in Loretto, ON. “The dynamic, the energy, and the positivity are like nothing I’ve experienced. With that to lead up to a medal, I’m over the moon with this experience.”Lane has been partnered with Caravella, a mare that was competing as a hunter before Lane purchased her, for the past six years. The pair has grown up together, moving through the levels from junior up to grand prix.“Capping off our career with a medal – that was on the ‘to do’ list!” smiled Lane. “I’m so happy with her. We’re partners for life, and I couldn’t ask for a better partner. It’s moments like this when you can sit back and reminisce about all the effort that goes into it, and the support you have received, whether it be from sponsors, grooms – everybody who is behind the horse and yourself. It’s an amazing experience!”Riding in the anchor position for Canada was Belinda Trussell, who is an Olympian and three-time World Equestrian Games competitor. She was aboard her veteran partner Anton, a 15-year-old dark bay Sachsen-Anhaltiner gelding (Antaeus x Melit) owned by her mother, Robyn Eames, and her husband, Marc Trussell. The pair earned a score of 75.078% from the five-member judging panel.“I think, for Canada, that this Games has pushed us to a new level,” said Trussell, who is competing in her first Pan American Games. “To be coming away with nothing below 70%, and highlights of 76%, has never been done. It’s really exciting for Canada. We are so pumped as a nation, and pumped to go forward to the next games. We are international contenders. There is huge excitement!”Of her first Pan Am team experience, Trussell said, “We are extremely supportive of one another. There’s a lot of fun and camaraderie in the barn. We have a great group. I have to say thanks also to our International Support Team. They have done an absolutely phenomenal job for us and they have made our job so easy. It’s just been an absolute pleasure.”The Canadian Dressage Team is supported by chef d’equipe Alison Martin, Team Manager Christine Peters, Special Advisor Desi Dillingham, Mental Coach Dirk Stroda, Veterinarian Dr. Geoff Vernon, and Therapist Usha Knabe.With the team competition now complete, a total of 23 horse-rider combinations will move forward to the Individual Final on Tuesday, July 14. Athletes will perform their freestyles, a series of required movements choreographed to the music of their choice, making for spectator-friendly competition. Riders do not carry forward their scores from the first two days of competition, allowing everyone to start on equal footing in the individual freestyle competition. Individual medals will be awarded at the conclusion of Tuesday’s competition.All four Canadian Dressage Team members finished in the top eight individually on both Saturday and Sunday, and all four earned scores of over 70% on both days. Due to a change to the qualifying criteria, all four Canadian athletes – Fraser, Lane, Trussell and von Martels – will move forward to the Individual Final.

Brian Sevald/iStock(ST. LOUIS) — For the second time since classes resumed at public schools in St. Louis this month, grief counselors will be on hand at an elementary school on Monday to comfort friends of 8-year-old Jurnee Thompson, a third-grader gunned down while standing in front of a restaurant with relatives following a football game.Since April, nine children under the age of 17 have been killed by gun violence in the city of St. Louis, and authorities say no one has been charged in any of the slayings.“We are all at risk,” a frustrated St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson said at a news conference on Saturday. “If you are as outraged as I am … please help.”Saying the child killings have reached a point of “urgency,” Krewson announced a $25,000 CrimeStoppers reward for information leading to an arrest in any of the unsolved cases.“The message now for these shooters is when you engage in this type of violent behavior, there will be a significant incentive for people to give us information to lead to your arrest,” Krewson said.But Lisa Pisciotta, executive director of St. Louis Regional CrimeStoppers, said the reward money will only be available until Sept. 1, and encouraged people with information on any of the case to contact police immediately, adding that all tips will be kept anonymous.“It expresses the urgency of the situation,” Krewson said of the time limit put on the reward.Less than 24 hours after Krewson announced the reward, St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department homicide investigators responded to the fatal shooting of a 15-year-old boy. The victim, whose name was not immediately released, was discovered on the southeast side of the city at 6 a.m. on Sunday with a bullet wound to the head.Police said no arrests have been made.The fatal shooting came about 35 hours after Jurnee Thompson was shot in the head and killed on the northeast side of the city after she attended the football jamboree, the city’s annual kickoff to the high school football season, police said.St. Louis Police Chief John Hayden said Jurnee had attended the jamboree at Soldan High School and was waiting for a food order with her two teenage cousins outside a restaurant when gunfire rang out.St. Louis Schools Superintendent Kelvin Adams said counselors will be at Herzog Elementary school on Monday to provide support for classmates and teacher who knew the girl.“I don’t know that there are words to explain how difficult it is for the families that are hurting, and the impact this has on the community,” Adams told reporters on Saturday.The girl’s death came just 12 days after 7-year-old Xavier Usanga was killed by a stray bullet while playing near his St. Louis home. Xavier was slain a day before he was to start the second grade at Clay Elementary School in St. Louis.A funeral for Xavier was held on Saturday.“I miss your smile, your laugh, your hair. I couldn’t believe that you were gone. Why would someone take your life away?” Xavier’s 10-year-old sister, Trinity Usanga, told mourners who packed her brother’s funeral at a St. Louis Catholic church, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch newspaper.Federal authorities said in court earlier this month that a 23-year-old man, who was arrested and charged with stealing $50,000 from an armored car company he worked for, had confessed to firing the shots that killed Xavier. St. Louis police continue to investigate the killing, but state prosecutors have yet to charge him in the homicide.On Saturday, Chief Hayden read off a list of other fatal shootings of children that have yet to be solved and pleaded with the public to come forward with information.He said it was time for people in the community to be less concerned about retaliation for coming forward with information to police and more concerned about “what would happen to little children if you don’t.”Hayden said other unsolved homicides of children include the April 30 killing of 2-year-old Kayden Johnson and his 18-year-old mother, Trina’ty Riley, who were shot to death while hiding in a closet of their home after an intruder broke in.He said Kennedi Powell, 3, was shot to death on June 9 when she was standing on a sidewalk near her father’s car with other children and a gunman drove up in a vehicle and opened fire.Four other children and three adults were injured in the incident. No arrests have been made.Eddie Hill IV, 10, was killed in another drive-by shooting on July 19 as he stood on the front porch of his home with his father, Hayden said. No arrests have been made.Other youngsters killed by gun violence were Kristina Curry, 16, who was found shot to death in the parking lot of a high school on May 23; Derrel Williams, 15, who died on June 25 after being discovered shot on a street; and Jashon Johnson, 16, was found shot multiple times on a street on June 8.“In each of these cases, police investigators know that people were at or near the scene of these homicides. Please help us find the shooters,” Jimmie Edwards, the St. Louis public safety director and a former juvenile court judge, said at Saturday’s news conference. “If you or someone else you know may be hiding a shooter, please turn them in. Your failure to turn in people that have committed these types of offenses may also cause you to be charged with a crime.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Editor’s note: NASCAR.com continues its countdown of team previews for the Monster Energy Series season, ranked in order of best finish in last year’s owner standings. Today’s feature: Richard Petty Motorsports and driver Bubba Wallace.Richard Petty MotorsportsManufacturer: ChevroletEngine: ECR EnginesDriver: Bubba Wallace, No. 43 Crew chief: TBD2018 standings: Wallace competed in his first full-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season and finished 28th in the standings. The No. 43 car was 30th in the owner standings.What’s new: After a full season paired with crew chief Drew Blickensderfer, Bubba Wallace will have a new partner atop the pit box in 2019.Outlook: With a full season of experience under his belt, Wallace will undoubtedly have learned much to help him in his sophomore season. Problem is, he’ll have to adjust to a new crew chief, now. If he can meld quickly with the new partner, he might be able to work his way into contention in races.DRIVERBubba Wallace, No. 43 Chevrolet: Despite immense focus and anticipation for the only full-time African-American driver in the Cup Series, Wallace started 2018 with a bang — finishing second in the Daytona 500. He wept tears of joy and celebration after the race. “I’m competitive. I love to win. I hate to finish second, and obviously that shows for everybody, but I’m human,” he said. “No matter if I race cars for a living and enjoy doing it, at the end of the day, we all get emotional about something.”It would end up being the 25-year-old’s best finish of the season, but his up-and-down season showed definite signs of growth. Wallace forged a jovial mentorship relationship with boss Richard Petty — despite a 56-year age difference. He took a some big hits throughout the season, including one at Pocono, and struggled at the Charlotte road course, but also showed signs of promise at restrictor-plate tracks and at Bristol. In all, he led a total of 19 laps and had an average finish of 24.5, with standout performances at Phoenix’s ISM Raceway (finishing 10th) in November, Texas in April (eighth) and two top-20 finishes at Talladega (16th and 19th).TEAM PREVIEWS• Jan. 22: Assorted teams• Jan. 23: Richard Petty Motorsports• Jan. 24: Germain Racing• Jan. 25: Leavine Family Racing• Jan 28: Front Row Motorsports• Jan. 29: JTG Daugherty Racing• Jan. 30: Wood Brothers Racing• Jan. 31: Roush Fenway Racing• Feb. 1: Richard Childress Racing• Feb. 4: Chip Ganasssi Racing• Feb. 5: Hendrick Motorsports• Feb. 6: Joe Gibbs Racing• Feb. 7: Stewart-Haas Racing• Feb. 8: Team Penske

These four productions beat out 84 other nominees for the prestigious design awards in set, costume, lighting and notable effects. The awards, which honor outstanding design in New York City theater, were founded back in 1965 and were originally called the Maharam Awards. Later they were renamed the American Theatre Wing Design Awards, and in 1999 they became the Henry Hewes, named for the noted critic who created the awards and served as a board member for the Wing until his death in 2006.
