SHIRIKA lisilokuwa la kiselikari la Empower Society Transform Lives ( ESTL) limetoa namba itakayotumika kutoa taarifa ya vitendo vya ukatili wa kijinsia na ukeketaji mkoani Singida.

Akizungumza katika kikao cha kamati ya ulinzi wa wanawake na watoto Mkoa wa Singida kilichoketi jana Hospitali ya Rufaa ya mkoa huo ya Mandewa Mkurugenzi Mtendaji wa shirika hilo Joshua Lissu alisema namba hizo zitasaidia wananchi kutoa taarifa za vitendo vya ukatili wa kijinsia na ukeketaji kwa usiri.

Alizitaja namba hizo kuwa ni 0710567003 na kuwa baada ya kupata taarifa hizo watazifuatilia na kuzitoa kwenye vyombo husika kama polisi na maeneo mengine kwa hatua za kisheria.

" Kutoa taarifa kwa kutumia namba hizo zitasaidia kutoa taarifa kwa usiri kwani kuna baadhi ya watu wanaogopa kwenda polisi kwa hofu ya kujulikana na wanaofanya vitendo hivyo na kuhatarisha usalama wao" alisema Lissu.

Mkurugenzi Mtendaji wa Shirika la Stars of Power Rescue Foundation (SPRF) Dk. Suleiman Mutani akizungumza wakati akitoa taarifa za utekelezaji wa mradi wa kutokomeza ukatili 

huo Wilayani Ikungi unaofanywa na  shirika hilo alisema ili kutokomeza vitendo hivyo ni lazima kuwepo na ushirikiano wa dhati baina ya mashirika hayo wananchi na vyombo vya 

usalama kama polisi na mahakama. 

Alisema bila ya ushirikiano huo bado kutakuwepo na changamoto ya kutokomeza vitendo hivyo licha ya kuwepo jitihada kubwa ya kupambana navyo zinazofanywa na mashirika hayo kwa kushirikiana na serikali.

Ngariba mstaafu ambaye ni mwezeshaji wa shirika la ESTL, Hawa Njolo alisema mafunzo na elimu yakitolewa kwa mangariba itakuwa ni njia pekee ya kutokomeza vitendo hivyo.

" Ikitolewa elimu kwa mangariba kuhusu madhara ya ukeketaji itasaidia kumaliza kabisa changamoto hii katika mkoa wetu na maeneo mengine hapa nchini" alisema Njolo.

Njolo alitumia nafasi hiyo kuwaomba mangariba wote kuacha kuendelea na ukeketaji na badala yake watubu na kuanza kufanya kazi zingine ili kuwanusuru watoto ambao ndio wahanga wakubwa wa vitendo hivyo.

Mtathimini wa mradi wa kupinga vitendo vya ukatili wa kijinsia  kutoka Shirika la ESTL, Philbert Swai alisema mradi huo wa  kutokomeza vitendo hivyo hasa ukeketaji umefadhiliwa  na Shirika la The Foundation for Civil Society ambalo limetoa sh.milioni 60 kwa mwaka mmoja lengo likiwa ni kutoa mafunzo kwa makundi mbalimbali ya kijamii kwa ajili ya kutokomeza ukatili wa kijinsia na ukeketaji.

Developing countries need to dramatically increase agricultural innovation and the use of technology by farmers, to eliminate poverty, meet the rising demand for food, and cope with the adverse effects of climate change, says a new World Bank report released today.

The relative stagnation in agricultural productivity in recent decades, particularly in South Asia and Africa where the vast majority of the poor live, underscores the need for new ideas to improve rural livelihoods. Renewed investment to increase new knowledge and ensure its adoption can help harness the large potential gains to be made in agricultural productivity and, hence, income, says the Harvesting Prosperity: Technology and Productivity Growth in Agriculture report.

It notes that nearly 80 percent of the world’s extreme poor live in rural areas, with most relying on farming for their livelihood. Poverty reduction efforts, thus, need an intensive focus on raising agricultural productivity, which has the largest impact of any sector on poverty reduction, roughly twice that of manufacturing.

“Boosting productivity in the agriculture sector can lead to more and better jobs while enabling more people to move off-farm to cities to pursue other opportunities. This requires comprehensive reform of domestic agricultural innovation systems, more effective public spending and the cultivation of inclusive agricultural value chains with an increased role for the private sector,” said World Bank Group Vice President for Equitable Growth, Finance and Institutions, Ceyla Pazarbasioglu. “New technologies are improving access to and costs of information, finance and insurance in all sectors, including agriculture. This can help raise the productivity of low skilled farmers, but only with the right incentives and capabilities to develop and scale these technologies,” she added.

The report examines the drivers and constraints to agricultural productivity and provides pragmatic policy advice. It notes that while in East Asia, crop yields have increased six-fold in the past four decades, contributing to the dramatic reduction in poverty in China and other East Asian countries, it has only doubled in Sub-Saharan Africa and parts of South Asia, with corresponding disappointing reductions in poverty.

In addition, climate change, together with a deteriorating natural resource base, will hit agriculture hard, impacting the poor and vulnerable, precisely in Africa and South Asia.

The key driver for increasing agricultural productivity and rising incomes is the adoption of innovative technologies and practices by farmers. This will enable farmers to raise yields, manage inputs more efficiently, adopt new crops and production systems, improve the quality of their products, conserve natural resources, and adapt to climate challenges.

However, the world is facing a widening research and development (R&D) spending gap, even as government funding for agriculture is reaching new heights. In developed countries, investment in agricultural R&D was equivalent to 3.25 percent of agricultural GDP in 2011, compared with 0.52 percent in developing counties. Among the latter group, Brazil and China invested relatively high amounts into agricultural R&D, while Africa and South Asia had the lowest spending relative to agricultural GDP. In fact, in half of African countries, R&D spending is actually declining.

Governments need to consider both public and private research and technology transfer in strengthening their overall innovation system. Repurposing the current public support for agriculture offers a significant opportunity to revitalize public agricultural research systems, invest in agricultural higher education, and create the enabling conditions to leverage private sector R&D. The private sector, in turn, can stimulate more rapid access to new technologies for farmers. In developed countries, private companies contribute about half the total R&D spending targeting the needs of farmers, and as much as one-quarter in large emerging economies, such as China, India, and Brazil. Policy tools to encourage more private R&D in agriculture include reducing restrictions on market participation, encouraging competition, removing onerous regulations, and strengthening intellectual property rights.

“Agriculture in Africa and South Asia faces an innovation paradox. While the economic returns to and growth effects of R&D and knowledge diffusion are documented to be very high, research spending is decreasing in critical areas of the world and local universities and think tanks are not keeping up. Policy makers in developing countries need to give careful attention to reversing these trends and improving the broader enabling environment to encourage private sector contribution as well,” said World Bank Chief Economist for Equitable Growth, Finance and Institutions, William Maloney, who is the lead author of the report.

While new communication technologies make improving access to information, finance and insurance more feasible than before, small farmers face major barriers to adopting the new technologies that such research efforts yield.

“Poor information about new technologies, absence of insurance and capital markets, high market transaction costs, land tenure insecurities and lack of transportation infrastructure are inhibiting adoption and diffusion of new technologies among farmers. Together with increased R&D spending, sustained efforts are needed to remove these barriers,” said World Bank Global Director for Agriculture and Food, Martien Van Nieuwkoop.

Harvesting Prosperity: Technology and Productivity in Agriculture is the fourth volume in the World Bank’s Productivity Project series, which examines the ‘productivity paradox’ of a persistent slowdown in productivity growth despite technological advancements.
