There was a time in America, 150 years ago -- on September 22, 1862 to be exact -- when it was chic to have a slave serving your dessert, or at hand to service your every need. While slavery is no longer acceptable in the developed world, legally or socially, the sad truth is that it is still rampant -- hidden in the underbelly of society (all around the world) and woven into the supply chain of some of our goods. Human trafficking is a $32 billion industry with 20.9 million people trafficked annually, according to the International Labor Organization. One-quarter of the world's slave labor are children.

I am rarely stuck for words. But today (29 May 2013) at the inauguration of 58 houses at Kokuthoduvai in the Mullativu District in Northern Sri Lanka, I was first stunned then overwhelmed by the resilience of the people who had built their own houses funded by Red Cross and now the enterprising manner they are going about doing organic farming by using animal and poultry dung, and adding leaves and vegetation, plus a bacteria that speeds the decaying process. Our world. Your move.

BRAC is a development success story, spreading solutions born in Bangladesh to 10 other countries around the world – a global leader in creating opportunity for the world’s poor. What started out as a limited relief operation in 1972 in a remote village of Bangladesh has turned into the largest development organisation in the world. Organising the poor using communities’ own human and material resources, BRAC (formerly Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee) catalyses lasting change, creating an ecosystem in which the poor have the chance to seize control of their own lives.

Global Policy Forum On April 3-4, 2014 the Intergovernmental Committee of Experts on Sustainable Development Financing holds a consultation on "Co-Creating New Partnerships for Financing Sustainable Development" in Helsinki, Finland. This committee was established by the outcome document of the Rio+20 conference, which called for committee of experts tasked with preparing a report "proposing options on an effective sustainable development financing strategy to facilitate the mobilization of resources and their effective use in achieving sustainable development objectives". In a statement for the occasion, Righting Finance says that "in view of the systemic market failures of the past decade, we are convinced now more than ever of the need for an effective and capable government as a protector and guarantor of human rights in development rather than a mere enabler of private sector development".

But what’s next?
Liste des pays qui ne possèdent pas d'armée — Wikipédia Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Cet article contient une liste des pays qui ne possèdent pas d'armée. En 2010, vingt-huit pays indépendants du monde ne possèdent pas d'armée. La plupart de ces pays sont de petite taille et ont des populations n'excédant pas les 500 000 habitants. De fait, ils préfèrent soit conclure un accord de défense avec un pays tiers (l'Islande est membre de l'Otan et comme Palau ou la Micronésie, elle a des accords de défense avec les États-Unis) qui précise que c'est l'armée d'un autre pays qui doit assurer leur défense en cas de nécessité, soit ils possèdent de petites forces paramilitaires (Maurice possède une force spéciale de 1 500 hommes) ou des gardes, comme Monaco qui possède une garde princière d'une centaine d'hommes.
