FDA, Partners Call for Sustainable Forest Management

first_imgPart of the equipment provided by the EU to the FDA– Dedicates Region 3 refurbished officesAuthorities of the Forestry Development Authority (FDA), European Union (EU) and the Government of the United Kingdom (UK) have called on Liberians to consider the sustainable management of the Liberian forest to fight climate change and make economic progress.It may be recalled that in 2012, the Liberian government and the EU entered negotiations through the Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) to monitor, keep surveillance and evaluate the Liberian timber products that are exported to the EU countries and elsewhere in the world.These assertions were contained in statements made at the turnover ceremony of a refurbished office and forest equipment to FDA, held recently at the port city of Buchanan, Grand Bassa County.Dr. David Belgrove, UK Ambassador to Liberia, said since the inception of the Liberia Forest Reform initiative, the UK and EU have provided about 9,000,000 euros intended for governance, capacity building and some provisions for vital equipment to the FDA and other stakeholders in the forest sector of the country.Belgrove then expressed the hope that the Liberian government would consider supporting the FDA and other agencies that are associated with the forest sector.He assured the FDA and other partners that the UK will work to ensure that forest governance, capacity building and the Liberian forest products are sustained and managed to benefit all.(From right) Mr. Tuagben of the FDA, Mrs. Sundblad (EU), Amb. Belgrove (UK) and other officials at the turnover ceremonyAmb. Belgrove pointed out that as Liberia increases the impact of her economy, the government must exert efforts to ensure that good governance of the forest, human rights, women empowerment and the fair share of the forest resources in forest affected communities are properly managed.Amb. Belgrove added that the sustainable management of the Liberian forest would address the issue of poverty reduction.He underscored the need for support to the “vulnerable population” of the country in a bid to ensure that jobs are created and that citizens have access to basic social services.EU Charges d’affaires Mrs. Emma Sundblad reminded the gathering that the VPA signed between Liberia, the EU and other countries is a trade agreement and not a development initiative.Mrs. Sundblad noted that the VPA agreement addresses three components of the FDA, which include commercial, community and conservation.She, however, pointed out that sustainability of the Liberian forest remains key to the overall development of the country’s forest sector.Mrs. Sundblad called on the Liberian government and stakeholders in the forest sector to commit themselves to the management of the VPA.The EU official also underscored the need for the government to support the FDA to ensure that the forest is managed so that resources generated would be used to benefit the country.She said the EU has provided US$80 million in support of building the systems.Mrs. Sundblad further disclosed that in 2011, the EU provided US$120 million to the FDA to strengthen forest governance, build human resource capacity and purchase equipment, which she said should be properly maintained.FDA managing director Darlington Tuagben extended thanks to the entity’s partners for the level of support to protect the country’s forest.Tuagben said the provision of the equipment at the cost of US$42,750 to the Region 3 FDA office in Buchanan would go a long way to strengthen work of law enforcement in the governance process of the Liberian forest.“We are very grateful to all partners especially the EU and UK, who have called on the government to increase the FDA budget that could translate into the practical enforcement of the forest laws,” Tuagben noted.He urged members of the civil society organizations to go to all forest operations and monitor the logging activities. He assured them that there would be no interference in the monitoring work.Mr. Tuagben meanwhile assured the EU and UK ambassadors that the equipment provided to the FDA for the Buchanan operation would be used for its intended purpose.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Dawson Creek RCMP advise hunters to be more aware of BC hunting regulations

first_imgPeople driving through crop land can also be charged with mischief under the criminal code for causing damage to crops.Anyone with information on this case is encouraged to contact the BC Conservation office, Dawson Creek RCMP or can call Crimestoppers to remain anonymous. Police are issuing a reminder that hunting cultivated land without permission can result in a $230.00 fine under Section 39 of the BC Wildlife Act, and encouraging hunters to respect the rights of property owners by seeking permission prior to hunting on private land.Dawson Creek RCMP responded to a complaint of individuals hunting without permission on cultivated land on Friday.A farmer observed people in a vehicle shooting at elk on his property. The farmer attempted to speak with the individuals, who took off at a high rate of speed.- Advertisement -A search on the property later revealed a dead bull elk in the field.Both RCMP and the BC Conservation office were involved in trying to locate the suspects nearby; conservation is continuing with the investigation.Sgt. Ed Reinink with Dawson Creek RCMP adds that the use of firearms on roads can result in additional wildlife and criminal code charges.Advertisementlast_img read more

TEXTING PARENTS ABOUT TESTS AND HOMEWORK CAN IMPROVE MATHS RESULTS AND ABSENTEEISM

first_imgHelping parents to engage in their child’s learning by texting them about upcoming tests or homework deadlines can boost secondary school pupils’ maths results by the equivalent of an extra month in the classroom, according to the results of a new trial published by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) .Almost 16,000 students in 36 English secondary schools took part in the randomised controlled trial of the Parent Engagement Project, delivered by researchers from the University of Bristol and Harvard University.Parents were sent an average of 30 texts over one school year (roughly one per week) with content ranging from dates of upcoming tests and warnings about missed homework, to conversation prompts on what their child had learnt that day. The independent evaluators from Queen’s University Belfast found that pupils receiving the intervention made an additional month’s progress in maths compared with a similar group whose parents didn’t get the texts. Absenteeism was reduced too.They reported that schools embraced the programme and a vast majority of parents were supportive of the programme including the content, frequency and timing of texts.Pupils receiving the intervention made an additional month’s progress in mathsPrevious research has shown that while parental engagement is an effective way of improving attainment, little is known about how to do this successfully – and, in particular, how to reach parents whose own experiences of schools were not positive.At a maximum cost to schools of just £6 per pupil across the school year, today’s results suggest that texting parents could be a straightforward and cost-effective way of improving attainment through parental engagement. The approach is likely to be even cheaper than this as most schools will already have the required texting software and messages can be free if parents have downloaded the relevant software (which is also free) onto their smartphones. Evaluations of two more trials designed to find out what does and doesn’t work when it comes to engaging parents, are also published by the EEF today. In contrast to the light-touch approach of the Parent Engagement Project, both aimed to engage parents through face-to-face programmes:Parent Academy, delivered by researchers from the University of Chicago and evaluated by NatCen, offered parents the opportunity to participate in 12 classes over the course of an academic year. The sessions were designed to equip them with the skills to support their child’s learning in numeracy and literacy.SPOKES (Supporting Parents on Kids’ Education in Schools),delivered by Plymouth Parent Partnership and the University of Oxford, and evaluated by the Institute for Effective Education, gaveparents of five and six year old struggling readers ten group sessions to help them support their children’s learning at home.Both independent evaluations reported that, for a number of different reasons, the interventions struggled to persuade parents to attend regularly. While they did not find evidence of impact for all children, both delivered valuable findings.One of the aims of the Parenting Academy trialwas to find out whether financial incentives could be successful in changing parents’ behaviours and improving their attendance. Some of the parents were paid Stg£30 to attend each session. For these parents, attendance was much higher, suggesting that financial incentives may be an effective way to engage and retain parents in interventions of this type.Although the evaluation of SPOKES didn’t find an overall improvement in reading scores for all children of parents who attended, there were some promising results for boys, and for all children on some broader, longer-term measures. This could mean that the programme is effective for boys in particular, or for all children in terms of Key Stage 1 literacy scores. The EEF will investigate this further and report again next year.Sir Kevan Collins, Chief Executive of the Education Endowment Foundation, said: “We know that it can be very difficult to get parents more involved, particularly when their children get older. It would seem that the simple and cheap approach of regular texts could be a better bet for schools than expecting parents to turn up at school for classes of their own.”Also published were the results of another large-scale randomised controlled trial, the first designed to find out if taking part in groups like the Scout Association, Sea Cadets or St John Ambulance can have an impact on exam results as well as on wider life skills.” Delivered by the Youth United Foundation, 7,781 children in 71 schools took part in this trial of Youth Social Action. The evaluators from Durham University found that the students benefited from a small positive impact in reported skills such as self-confidence and teamwork. They found no evidence that there was any benefit for academic skills, but problems with the quality of data means that this result is not conclusive.Sir Peter Lampl. Chairman of the Education Endowment Foundation and of the Sutton Trust, said: “We know that your chances of doing well in life are only partially shaped by your academic attainment, essential life skills such as confidence, articulacy, working with others and social skills play a crucial role. Yet we know very little about how to develop these attributes in children. “There is a belief that taking part in activities like Scouts helps to build the essential skills young people increasingly need to be successful in life, so it is encouraging to see that the young people taking part in the trial of Youth Social Action which include Sea Cadets, Fire Cadets and Scouts reported an increase in their confidence and team-working skills.”TEXTING PARENTS ABOUT TESTS AND HOMEWORK CAN IMPROVE MATHS RESULTS AND ABSENTEEISM was last modified: July 15th, 2016 by John2Share 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)last_img read more
