Conflict and disaster reporting: Does the public still care?

ODI Environment and Climate Change - Thu, 2014-10-23 00:00

On 23 October 1984, the BBC aired a landmark report on the famine in Ethiopia. Describing the crisis as a ‘biblical famine’, the report galvanised the public, spurred the UK government into action and prompted the creation of the infamous Live Aid concert. Join us at The Frontline Club as we examine the current state of conflict and disaster reporting and how humanitarian agencies can work with the media to raise awareness and much-needed funds.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: World Bank Conference on Land and Poverty

 

The World Bank is pleased to announce the 16th Annual World Bank Conference on Land and Poverty being held from March 23 – 27, 2015 at the World Bank Headquarters in Washington D.C. Participants include leaders and professionals from across governments, civil society, academia, the private sector and partners to interact and discuss innovative approaches to improving land governance. Last year’s conference attracted more than 1,000 participants from 101 countries; 60 percent of participants were from developing countries, about a fourth representing government officials and another fourth from international organizations.

The theme for 2015 is Linking Land Tenure and Use for Shared Prosperity. The topic highlights that while land tenure affects the distribution of assets between men and women, generations, and social groups, patterns of land use will have far-reaching implications for welfare and other socio-economic outcomes at household, community, or landscape level. Although they are by no means a silver bullet, recent innovations in geospatial technologies provide exciting opportunities to document and analyze determinants as well as impacts of land use change that are of great relevance for policy, projects, and research in this area.


Authors interested in presenting at the conference are requested to submit an initial 800 to 1,500 word abstract before October 31th 2014 using the online form. A technical committee will decide on paper acceptance and outcomes will be communicated by December 1st, 2014.
