Creating employment is a priority for many governments’, as a result there has been calls to develop comprehensive strategies for young people who are not in employment, education or training. With poverty regularly cited as one of the most robust correlates of instability, it seems somewhat obvious that such programs could potentially increase stability even if that is not their primary aim. Despite the possibility of such spillovers, however, these impacts are seldom measured, with success based on a program’s economic impact. With a few notable exceptions, these potential spillovers and interactions are insufficiently modeled or understood, especially in conflict-affected and fragile settings. The research project entitled Employment for Stability was carried out to fill this knowledge gap by using employment intervention and stability data to identify these effects and interrelations.

By providing new information on the relationship between economic opportunity and stability in the context of employment interventions through a meta-analysis of pro-employment aid programs matched with stability data and the identification of lessons learnt, the study is intended to contribute to more effective policy interventions for longer-term stability, particularly in fragile countries.

It is against this context Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, The United Nations University - Maastricht Economic and Social Research Institute on Innovation and Technology, the Hague Institute for Global Justice, INES-Ruhengeri and Pan African Chamber of Commerce and Industry are organizing the International Workshop on Employment for Stability from July 5-6, 2017 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. 

Goals and Objectives  of the Workshop

The Conference seeks to

  • Facilitate inter-sectoral dialogue and sharing of experiences to understand the extent employment programs help bring stability.
  • Stock-taking of the main results of the study including the lessons learnt and eventual strategies, policies, and actions.
  • Explore potential roles for strategic engagement (nationally, regionally and internationally) with the aim of realizing appropriate and effective strategies to improve both development and stability.

 

Counterfeit medicines represent an enormous public health challenge. Anyone, anywhere in the world, can come across medicines seemingly packaged in the right way but which do not contain the correct ingredients and, in the worst-case scenario, may be filled with highly toxic substances. In some countries, this is a rare occurrence, in others, it is an everyday reality.

One of the most complex and challenging problems faced as a result of the globalization of health-care delivery is securing the integrity and safety of the global medicines supply chain. Dangerous forms of pharmaceuticals are illicitly sold by criminal elements and illegal transnational organizations creating patient safety and public health dangers that undermine public and private investments in health care.

Yet, despite recognized dangers to global public health, reports compiled by public and private stakeholders (including law enforcement, regulatory agencies, manufacturers, and customs officials) show that the scope, production, distribution and sales of substandard, spurious, falsely labeled, falsified, counterfeit medicines continues to increase.

In order to mobilize awareness and action in the fight against fake drugs, the Pan African Chamber of Commerce is organizing International workshop on “Fighting the Illicit Trafficking of Fraudulent Medicines in Africa” to discuss strategies and international collaboration aimed at combating counterfeit pharmaceutical products.

The International workshop is organized as part of the International Association for Dental Research (IADR) meetings consisting of: (i) the 5th General Session of the Africa Middle East Region (AMER), (ii) the 31st East and Southern Africa Division Annual Meeting, (iii) the 14th Annual Scientific Conference of International Association for Dental Research of Nigerian Division and (iv) the 12th Annual Meeting of the Ethiopian Association for Dental Research.

The objective of the International workshop is to:

  • Bring together key business partners to discuss and recommend ways of preventing the distribution  of Counterfeit drugs in Africa;
  • Identify and discus strategies used by leading pharmaceutical companies to combat counterfeit drugs and
  • Understand the impact of the proliferation of internet pharmacies on business and societies in Africa.

The meeting which is expected to attract some 200 participants from Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Europe and the US, will also provide participants with an invaluable opportunity to exchange ideas and facilitate the protection of citizens and improve the quality of an apparently deteriorating drug supply.

Pan African Chamber of Commerce and Industry with the support of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, African Trade Policy Center is organizing a consultation meeting on May 22-23, 2017 entitled ‘Enabling Cross Border Trade - Ways Chambers of Commerce can lobby in Support of the Single Window Meeting’ to update business on the progress made in implementing the Trade Single Window system across the continent and to contribute ideas to help shape the future of import/export processes and formalities in Africa.

The Consultation Meeting on Enabling Cross Border Trade will discuss issues and challenges around the implementation and operation of the Single Window in Africa and the ways the chambers of commerce and other business support associations can influence the trade facilitation implementation process.
