"In nineteen ninety eight they attached to us embassies in kenya and tanzania killing twelve americans in more than two hundred kenyans tanzanians president. Bill clinton reacted swiftly. Today i ordered our armed forces to strike at terrorist related facilities in afghanistan and sudan because of the imminent threat they presented to our national security sudan had once harboured al-qaeda members including its leader osama bin laden marie multi guy with the international crisis group in nairobi does hud along presence within the region it may not have always been called tied up but a form of jihadist call has existed within the region for kids in the eighties. Matija explains a group of youth in somalia and the region traveled to the mountains of afghanistan to join the fight against the soviets win been led them formed a tighter and moved to sudan in the early nineties in one thousand nine hundred eighty one. There was existing call of the africans to could tap into decades later. Al qaeda has inspired local terrorist groups across africa that continued to wage deadly attacks. He says the global war on terror has not made the region nec for unfortunately while in much of the world nine one one is viewed as in the past in africa. The legacy of those attacks leaves on at did their mo- jihadis operating on the continent than there. What twenty years. Ago two years ago the al qaeda linked group al-shabaab attacked a hotel complex here nairobi. It killed dozens of people including an american. The fear of terror attacks still lingers in the city security guards and metal detectors are regular features in most big buildings other parts of the continent like the suhel are also confronting waves of violence that have been attributed to enduring terrorist. Threats neog Boggy yoko is with the africa security sector network. I don't think that the international approach in terms of fighting a global terrorism can be relevant in this context or in any other i we can see everywhere else. In the context of the suhel security threats come in a variety of forms from community conflicts local rebel groups and yes jihadi groups as well but even though she says are highly localized born out of local issues. That governments need to address. That doesn't mean that they don't draw inspiration from international terror groups recently the al qaeda and the islamic mahgreb a collision various jihadi groups in the suhel congratulated the taliban on their return to power even before they entered kaboom she'd be seen as an example residents and fashions which should inspire. Its own the combatants. Twenty years after the nine eleven terror attacks experts in africa. Say one thing is clear. The approach to countering terrorism needs to change the world. i'm halima condie in nairobi. Let's head to the courts. Now center court at arthur ashe stadium. That is tomorrow is the. Us open's women's final though you'd be excused for thinking. It's a junior's match. Two teenagers murad o'connor from the uk and layla fernandez from canada. Are squaring off in flushing meadow in queens new york sports writer. A springer joins us now. She writes about the intersection of sports in society. So this match between two teenagers. A condo and fernandez are we witnessing history here shera in some respects were witnessing history is the first time. Two teenagers have met in the final of a major since the nineteen ninety nine. Us open. That was when serena williams who was then seventeen defeated martina hingis who was than eighteen however at that point in nineteen ninety nine williams and hinges. Were already well known tennis stars. That is not the case for rod kanu and fernandez. So i'm a tennis fan. But i didn't know about rod o'connor only got fernandez in the round of sixteen or these two young women big surprises having reached the finals. I think the cod incentives so to speak of the tennis world were the only ones who really knew. Potentially these two are capable of but rod kanu came into the tournament. She's from britain. She's ranked a hundred fiftieth in the world fernandez from canada's ranked seventy third in the world so major surprises particularly because of how difficult it has been from fernandez to advance through the tournament. She had a very difficult draw. She had to defeat to former number one players to get to the final. What are we witnessing here. Then with these two unseeded players in the finals of the us open is. It's the next generation of women's champions or am. I just getting a little ahead of myself. You might be getting a little bit ahead of yourself because you know if you look back. There always seems to be a new crop of young players particularly young female players who are the next emerging star or stars and you know the pressure gets to them. Injuries get to them is a sport where you're very exposed your ranked it's off. It's you alone on the court and we have seen in fact how the pressure can get two players throughout this tournament and let's not forget that earlier in the run up to the final fernandez beat nio miyasaka in the third round and after that happened osaka. Basically said you know. I'm not getting much joy from tennis anymore. And i'm going to take an indefinite break from the game. So i'm already seeing a leyla fernandez pushed in front of the cameras after every match and she's responding soundly but i'm just wondering with the story of naomi asaka that you just recounted. What do you think her story says about the pressures. All these young women face is always. Would i've heard about tennis. Which is that. it's a sport that can eat. It's young and i think that's very true. You have players like naomi stock of who win when they are very young again. Pushed out in front of the cameras. Signed tons of endorsement deals and with that money and that exposure comes an increasing amount of pressure. And right now rodney kanu in fernandez they have the luxury and it really is the luxury of playing without pressure. They have not yet reached the stage of their young career when they are you know expectations heaped upon them will really see what they're made of and quite frankly what their games are made of when that happens and whoever wins this tournament. That's going to happen in a matter of weeks so there will be a lot more pressure the next time both of these women take the court for the final and then much more pressure once they take the court again following whatever happens in the final. Sheera springer is a sports writer and journalist covering the intersection of sports in society. Shera thank you very much great to speak with you. Likewise thank you you spend time with the world every weekday to hear the voices and stories that connect you with places across the.

"Venezuela's economic and political problems long ago extended beyond the country's borders millions of venezuelans about one fifth of the country's population have fled to other countries this weekend representatives from the government and opposition parties are meeting in mexico city with international mediators for more on this. We have the world's latin america correspondent. Or hey valencia. On the line from mexico city or the government and opposition in venezuela have dueling claims on power. Why the two sides meeting i mean. What do they want. Carol the many reasons for the meetings that are happening this weekend in mexico city can be summed up in two one word. Stalemate the authoritarian regime of nicolas's mother has strengthened its control power in venezuela or the last few years but at the same time. Venezuela is a pariah. It is isolated from most of south america and much of the world who rode rigas is a former vice president and the main emissary and the person who is speaking on behalf of nicholas modo here in mexico city this weekend. He made some remarks to the television dealer sued earlier this week info guy. They make of yet. Here's the pro that he gets saying that they have a number of proposals but they are mostly focused on the economy. Because venezuela has been economically sanctioned by the united states and by european governments who see nicholas model as an illegitimate president. And of course there's opposition leader guido who a few countries around the world still consider the president. Yeah the opposition led by kwon. Dole has not succeeded in their efforts to unseat the person who they see as a dictator their strategy has mostly been to rally amongst themselves because the opposition is a broad tent as many groups. It has been also to rally on the streets and to use the international pressure but they haven't succeeded so far.

She says the platform farm helps her attract customers now she estimates she's lost seventy percent of them because of the suspension shaved on each has been significantly because a lot of reports.

No matter where he goes eats my sue source is message to the government. Is this please we back. You bring back twitter. There are signs that could happen soon. Nigeria says twitter has met most of the conditions. They've set for restoring the platform in an email. A twitter spokesperson says. The company is working on a path forward for the world. I'm halima condie for the last four hundred years. You would be hard pressed to find a wild beaver. In britain the species was hunted to extinction by the end of the sixteenth century conservation groups in the uk though have been wanting to turn back time and reintroduce beavers their native lands. The government is considering plans to release beavers into rivers there after a successful pilot project to discuss joined by chris. jones director of the. uk's beaver. Trust so chris what most people know about beavers is that they cut down trees to build a big complex dams. Why bring them back. While i say huge question really our rivers on not in great health in fact cannot being great health without this animal. We need the hydrological. Cycle is incredibly important. So you get beavis. You begin to get large slow. Moving bodies of water. They hold a lot of water during dry to vents our land in the northern hemisphere Same applies in in north. America has been dried out either. Move of this animal. We need to hold water on island for longer in a few live in a settlement which is by a stream if you haven't got flooding yet you're probably gain to as a weather. Extremes become greater the swings get to stronger and if you live in a place which is a little bit prone to drought than those dreitzer going to get worse and it's gonna be really important to have a be a in upstream areas so you spoken about the benefits that beavers bring but they have not been around four hundred years and ecosystems have changed in their absence. Could reintroduction project spin out of control we think about was one of the do they cut entrees and they create localized flooding. That's what happens when they build a dam now. If that localized flooding is in a place where does not matter then a. We can say that as being a societal benefit you know because the us will improve official improves. The birds will improve. All those things plus will help to reduce the risk of downstream flooding. So that's good if they create a flood which fudge your house because you live next to the river. That is a bad. I think we've got the benefit of starting the completely blank slate. Now we can select those places where we bring beavis where they're going to have the maximum in terms of. Let's say societal benefits. We can manage those animals in such a way that we maximize goods and minimize the bats. You have hosted a family of beavers in an enclosure on your own land. What's that been like. Eighty absolutely extraordinary. They've created a large area of warta was not there before maybe only there a thousand years ago. They've brought back eight. Different species of birds turned up. We've got eleven species of bats feeding here in a time of driving twenty eighteen. We can actually pump water out onto our surrounding land. Because the beavis created reserve water for us that is if you're interested in preventing funding downstream. That is the name of the game. How does her damn look today. Pretty solid i. It's amazing you can just walk across. I use that area of land to graze some of my cows on and they just walk across the top of the dams. It's it's quite extraordinary has solid they are i mean. The beaver has a reputation as industrious. Little worker certainly the case here in the us where we have plenty of them in canada. They're revered of course even appears on the canadian nickel so after four hundred years of not having any beavers. What is the cultural connection. Brits have with be risk today. Eight kind of being relearned. You know. I think we do have that connection is still. But it's kind of through the prism of north america. You know we. We lost our b. Was a long time ago. I think yes. The last one. Four hundred years i think the vast majority of our viewers were gone. Maybe thousand years ago but we're slowly relearning it. You know a lot of school kids come and visit our site for example on they see the bbc the making stuff and they see them cutting down on. I think they learn. These animals have a real impact in that. They really move stuff. Chris jones the director and founder of the. Uk's beaver trust. He's been speaking with us. From cornwall chris. Thank you very much. Hey you're really welcome marco.

"I'm marco werman. You're with the world many governments across the globe or fighting insurgencies right now in mozambique in southern africa. They've been struggling to contain a rebellion for four long years. Thousands of died. Hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced in northern mozambique in the province of kabo delgado but there is hope that the tide may be turning. Here's the world. Africa correspondent halima condie earlier. This week the anthem of mozambique played on a windy afternoon in pemba. The capital of the kabul delgado province. It marked the launch of a new peacekeeping mission by the southern african development community. Sadeq as it's known is an organization of sixteen african nations. It's sending about fifteen hundred soldiers to help. Mozambique fight a years long. Insurgency major general alani monaci from south africa up described the mission this way to support republic of mozambique to combat acts of terrorism and violent extremism by neutralizing threats to region or to create a sexual environment. This is a turning point for mozambique. The country has been reluctant to accept help and has denied the scope of the problem. Robert wrestling is the ceo of panja. Risk an intelligence company. He is based in south africa. They have been reluctant to do sir one because a homegrown insurgency in the ruling party's home province is deeply embarrassing and has huge political and symbolic reputational damage to its. But that's changing. As attacks in the region have continued last month when thousand troops from rwanda arrived in coupled gado this week the us announced it would train when hundred mozambican commandos rangers. The extra support appears to be making a difference already this week. Mozambican and rwandan forces freed the town of modem boy depri- from insurgents. He was attacked last year. Mozambican general cristovao. Arthur chu may spoke with reporters about who these insurgents are very some was becomes. Does onions somalian's drc and other country who lead this group. But how has it terrorists. Still there are a lot of unknowns about the insurgency in northern mozambique. The region is predominantly muslim and earlier. This year the. Us government said the militants are tied to isis but many experts still are not so sure. Here's bustling analyst. I very much doubt and this is also backed up with very little evidence at the moment that there are strong ties into himself ideology leadership recruitment funding supply between the disparity insurgency northern mozambique and different parts of islamic state in africa. Beyond that one thing is clear about this insurgency. It's been deadly and destructive. Here's mozambican general. Row arthur tschumi again. The acute people destroyed infrastructure. If you go around you will see what they want. They don't want people living in peace. Many people in kabul delgado are happy to see the arrival of international troops. Here's one man. Speaking to rwandan state media from palma a town that was decimated in a deadly attack. Back in march via gigi show we're wand and troops. He said are bringing peace now. He wants to bring his family home but tonight. A machado a senior researcher with human rights. Watch caution what. We would one day on me to do at this stage. That is to make sure that the air is completely safe before they allow in grades anyone to return home. Machado says that the government needs to investigate alleged human rights abuses committed by the mozambican security forces against civilians. They had relatives that way. In force disappeared betrays devastated all ill-treated or beaten by security forces. All somebody executed as more troops arrive in mozambique to fight the insurgents machado says human rights needs to be a top priority for the world. I'm halima condie in nairobi this week. The biden administration turned its sights on a favourite target for american presidents opec the organization of the petroleum. Exporting countries opec controls more than eighty percent of the oil reserves on the planet. President biden wants to thirteen opec nations to pump out. more oil. biden is making the play at the same time that americans are dealing with high prices at the pump and as a us is resistant to tap into its reserves to unpack the global oil game. We're joined by ellen. Walled with the atlantic council global energy center. She joins us from jacksonville florida. How is opec responding to the biden administrations criticisms and demands to increase output ellen. Opaque hasn't issued a formal response. But there were some comments from opec delegates from. They basically amounted to our market analyses. We don't really see a need for more oil right now. So which is basically what you're saying. No we're not going to pump more. We already have plans to pump more oil. In fact we're not gonna put more than than we planned and don't know what you're talking about. And how does the white house does it see that. That increase output is satisfactory. Well it seems like they don't think that this increased output satisfactory but in in effect opec is going to be increasing its production by four hundred thousand barrels. A day each month from now through december and probably farther into twenty twenty two. So it's really kind of confusing as to why the biden registration is pressing opec for even more oil now where they already have plans to increase it wrote so opec does get a lot of criticism from the white house when gas prices are high. Here is this criticism of opec fair. It's not all pex fault in this case and gasoline prices in the united states aren't just a factor of opec they're mostly a factor of of oil prices but there is more that goes into it so for example last year or in say february of twenty twenty. The us was pumping thirteen million barrels. A day of oil now republican much closer to eleven and that extra two million barrels. A day doesn't seem like it's coming back. And a lot of that is due to policies that the administration has put in place that discouraged producers from expanding production domestically. So why do you think the. Us president is saying opec needs to help. What's the rhetoric about..

I'm halima condie. Khartoum sudan in russia. The crackdown on journalism continues. Independent outlets are deemed undesirable or foreign agents individual journalists are targeted and harassed with arrests and raids of their homes. That's what happened yesterday with rome. On dobro of the editor in chief of the russian news publication the insider remond joins us now from moscow. Can you describe how events full yesterday for you roman. How were you arrested in. How long were you detained for. It was early in the morning. I was sleeping actually and suddenly. I heard some noise. I didn't understand what's going on and suddenly someone started knocking at the door And immediately understand that. It's the one thing that can be. I just had like one minute to put my clothes on. And they started already to knock the door so they didn't let me at. No one minato pullback lots so it looked like they also wanted to harass john lewis to make it scary pressing. I don't say that like this was very unexpected. Because lots of my colleagues over the face such kind of searches and their laptops and phones always take the same happened with me. It's not like super new story but you always unprepared. Tap is with you so just before you arrested. You tweeted looks like. I'm going to be searched the polices knocking then. You posted your address and you wrote a lawyer wouldn't hurt. What were you thinking. Yes it was like first seconds. When i heard the dan looking at the door i understood was going on and understood that if i want to transfer some message i need to do it immediately because they will take my phone so i tweeted that. This is my address. I need a lawyer and indeed one hour. Think a lawyer game so it is very good self-organisation in this community when it's happening or often and draws of lawyers who are helping john lewis okay so you got hit with the charge of liable roman for you than what he see the real motivation behind your arrest. The real motivation was. They wanted to get access to my computers and telephones and no more about our investigations. As second reason is they just wanted to put some pressure of course for me. It changed nothing but for a young journalists. They can really be afraid that something like this can happen to them for some. It is a hot choice whether they are ready to face such kind of reaction of the government. You get asked about this all the time but things seem especially fraught for you right now. Have you been thinking about leaving. Russia working to change things outside of the country. Well right now. i don't have choice. Actually because they took my uh sports of course lew going to stop for investigations. But yes you're right. That many many john lozano leaving russia. I think that actually this is not a bad choice. Because if you're a investigative journalists it doesn't matter where you working from inside. Have i think like half while staff already working from europe and You can't even tell by reading. The insider which article was written by Who was writing from russia which was written somewhere. I dunno in montenegro. It's interesting you. And i met in moscow. Two years ago we spoke about your bold investigation into the perpetrators of the nova chuck poisoning of surrogates rebound uk. And at the time you express to me your determination to investigate the kremlin as deeply as you felt you needed to. I'm just wondering you. And i are speaking again just a day after apartment was searched and you arrested. One might have thought you'd wanna keep a lower profile today anyway. Why did you decide to speak well. I think it's obvious that the best strategy to be safe is to be in the middle of attention so if you'll say out loud everything that you want sometimes it is more safe than to keep the low profile because if something happens with you immediately everybody starts store speak about this. That's what we saw yesterday went after my arrest. All the russian independent media started. Write about this and lots of people really paid attention. Ramon what's next for you. How worried are you about how the kremlin might try and restrict your work further. Well i don't know because you never know when they just tried to harass you and make you feel afraid or demotivated ovando seriously ready to eliminate and rescue. So i'm trying not to think about this and just keep doing my job. Romance dober- hotel of is the editor in chief of the russian news publication.

Hassan mahameed is the head of the mosque. A fee adult can shake hamad. Says he was harassed and monitored by the bashir regime for supporting. The uprising says his religious duty to fight all kinds of injustice. That now comment is taking issue with some of the changes from the new government in sudan local known that offer the cover is zora explains how earlier this year he and other religious leaders and politicians went straight to prime minister abdullah humdrum office and called on him to fire the education official omar a if she took issue with the creation of adam picture and how the new curriculum was dramatically reducing. The number of koranic verses. That students had to memorize to him. The government was making all of these changes without consulting all parts of society including religious leaders. I spoke with one parent at the mosque muhammad hassan mohammed about his concerns. He has three children in school with al right. None of mafia to tell if mouth muhammed says supports separating religion from science math and other subjects. But he says students should still learn about religion and memorize parts of the koran and garage was making too many changes on that front mustafa abdul ibrahim twenty year. old architecture. student also had mixed opinions about the education reforms. You a little a telling me. It's good to learn about in history. Ebrahim tells me because it was largely missing from the old curriculum but teaching controversial things to kids. The ads is bad even though dozens of educators were behind the new curriculum changes. Amar alka rai faced most of the heat. He says he even received death. Threats they just talk about me. That this guy is an infill. He wants to make a lot of children in non muslims as the backlash grew. The prime minister temporarily paused the new curriculum and called for a review. That was a breaking point for guy. He resigned in protest and had harsh words for the prime minister. You blame us. Kemp with a -lution being the line of the division is. You became the line of overthrown. Be going to that now. The education system is a big mess and reforms have stalled. here's mohammed hassan. Muhammad the parent. Again life it up was a good. That is was a little bit. He says there's been a lot of confusion for parents and schools. Some teachers are still using the new curriculum. But just rip out the controversial pages others have gone back to the old one for many. It's disappointing example of the challenges to reform. A loss especially felt by young christians like cousin. Rothman cabeza headed muhima. Didn't alanna eli zafy. morale address. Abbasi says it wasn't easy. Being a christian student in sudan he had memorized chronic versus in all of his classes but nothing about his own religion was taught in schools. If islam is part of the curriculum he says christianity should be too because christians are also part of sudan.

Indonesia is a country whose people are spread out across thousands of islands which makes a sudden surge of coveted especially troubling indonesia's logging. More than fifty thousand new reported cases per day that is currently the highest rate in the world. Experts also believe the actual number is much higher the virus spreading throughout southeast asia more. Generally the world's patrick wind covers the region for us. We spoke earlier today about how bad things have gotten in indonesia. It's pretty out of control marco. They've got hospitals running out of oxygen patients being treated in parking. Lots of hospitals People dying at home with no care. Indonesia's a mostly muslim countries. So they bury their dead and there are these reports that grave diggers are totally overwhelmed. They can't dig graves fast enough. The reason it's so bad is the rate of people getting covert in. Indonesia is so fast it's doubled since the beginning of this month and experts say it isn't even close to peaking yet so this is a year and a half since a pandemic star we keep seeing these situations of clusters just spreading so quickly and fast. Why is it spreading so fast. Delta is a part of it. Another big part of it in indonesia is they have a lot of people. Two hundred and seventy million people. Fourth biggest country in the world and a lot of them are concentrated on one island java which is one of the most densely populated places in the world. The capital jakarta is there. This incredibly crowded bustling city where people live in close quarters especially poor people and they can't get away from each other and self isolate even if they wanted to. So what's the indonesian government done to bring this really troubling situation under control. Well obviously they're vaccinating but they don't have enough vaccine's only fifteen percent of indonesia's have even one dose. There are lockdowns but only in urban areas on the island of java where the capital jakarta is located and also bali that famous tropical island. But it's not a nationwide lockdown. Last week the president of indonesia joko widow he said quote. We can learn from what happened in india. But some would say. He didn't lockdown cities fast enough. Not even as fast as india did and so now. Infection rates are on par with what we saw in parts of india recently and then once it reaches that point it becomes almost uncontainable so as i said the viruses spreading throughout southeast asia generally Looking at your home. Base patrick thailand. There have been protests this week. Related to cove. What's going on there yet. Thailand is seeing a really nasty surge again. Thanks to the delta variant. They were actually at a breaking point before because the economy is in tatters and now that the surges hit a lockdown is about to kick in and they're about to stop all domestic flights further hurting the economy of thailand. And there's just so much anger because people in thailand have invested hope and a big vaccine rollout which the government promised promised it would be smooth..

"And while we have seen for the most part that the vaccines have remained quite effective against all the known variants. Today we also do additionally see that the vaccine's lose some level of efficacy against some of the new variants in particular things like the delta variant. We've seen this new naming scheme to help people communicate about the variants. And that is something that i think we need to be taking extraordinary paying extraordinary attention to the different variants. Do have the potential one day to potentially mutate away from immunity enough that they can start causing harm to individuals again. I want to emphasize right now. The vaccines are working are even with the variance. There are still exceeding all of our pre existing expectations for how welded vaccines would potentially work. So we're in good shape show but it goes to this discussion of what is where the honest. What level of attention and resources. We need to be paying to global transmission. We have a few countries that have the bulk of the world's well now that that have at the moment of bulk of the world's vaccines and that is largely because we're ethnocentric or we wanna take care of our own first before helping the rest of the world and i'm not at bioethicists that i can't comment on whether it's right or wrong. I comment on it. But i won't right now. But i think at the very least what we can start doing as we can start looking at global transmission of these variants of the virus and the propensity for the viruses to continue mutating other nations. And if it means that we need to start taking a different approach to helping other countries even if it's just through the lens of serving ourselves national defense global aid in this case is part of our national defence strategy against this virus in my opinion and and that being framing it in that type of way might be an appropriate way to really amp up the amount of resources that a government like the united states government is willing to throw up this pandemic abroad because As we just heard as long as this viruses transmitting anywhere. We are really at risk for new variants to come around. And i think it is probably one of the greatest threats that we should at least expect but hope that doesn't ever arise but we should be planning for. We should be doing everything in our power right now to assume that the worst will arise. Because we've seen what happens when we don't plan accordingly and and we wanna make sure that the last year doesn't continue happening across the globe began and we continue on this beneficial streak that were on rather than rather than going back in time and and dealing with brand new epidemics within the current events. She will thank you for those opening insights to everybody hearing a lot of themes from all of you about the importance right now in addressing the inequities around the globe and the challenges. We're going to have a chance now to dig deeper. I want to remind everyone who's tuning in that. This is the forum at harvard. St chance school of public health Representing this jointly with the world from pure x and gbh and the event is part of the lawrence h and roberta cone forum series viewers. You can post your questions for all of the panelists year at the forum at h s h dot harvard dot. Edu to kick off this. Next part i wanna start with another audio. Graham from the world appear x. Gbh this one is about technology transfer. It's something very that you started off Referencing and it's about vaccine manufacturing in africa. You'll hear the voices of my colleague reporter halima condie and patrick taku of the african vaccine manufacturing initiative. Patrick tabu is with the african vaccine manufacturing initiative. He says technology transfer could make a big difference here in africa. This allows you to par with a true vaccine manufacturer was being the and done debt at. It's the fastest way which you as an advocate vaccine manufacturing company gets gala according to the. Who there are fewer than ten vaccine manufacturers on the continent and most of them are not producing the active substance for these vaccines to boost says that african countries should aim to produce vaccines from beginning to end important for national security and health security purposes as demonstrated by our current experience with covid nineteen. So these issues of technology transfer building public health infrastructure and middle. Low income countries are so important now and preventing future catastrophes. Many of these places have a deep desire and resources to to make drugs and potentially vaccines but berry. I wanted to ask you first. Why is this building up of manufacturing capacity for example and lower resource settings so difficult but also important. The challenge has been. How do you start from scratch to become a pfizer or jay And What i'm hearing from my colleagues in south africa particularly is they have a lot of the scientific expertise that would be required to maintain that production analytical stuff in organizing and maintaining quality in a production facility but to do that would require to things external money to buy the heavy equipment and train people in how to use it and The second is to be able to be sure that they have a market so that when they produce a vaccine. It's easy for kobe. Because with two percent or three percent of poor countries vaccinated we know what the market is. We need advance market commitments from rich countries to make those available. But i think the long term interest of my colleagues in africa is not to be dependent on western produced vaccines that are only available under the conditions that the companies would like to have but would like to have the capability of making their own vaccines against something for example like lassa fever or a boa which is of no commercial interest two major companies but given the technology could be produced locally that would have a powerful impact and so the question is how can the rich countries collaborate technology transfer train and help plan for an indigenous vaccine capability. Not just against code but to leave a residue from kogo for other african vaccines have interest. That may not be of great commercial interest outside nina. I wonder if you might be able to add to that. Also in terms of what you're seeing in terms of how that is Moving along how those has been compensation for many many months and prior to this pandemic. what are you seeing as being needed. And also how on earth some of these transfers going right now. It's a great. It's a great question. And i think the the covid has really changed the conversation which i think is really important so before it was like. Oh we got you. Don't worry we only need a certain number. Mugabe has been called the supply and procurement strategy. It's excellent we only need. We don't eat too many manufacturers because we don't wanna flood the market and all that so i think you know we don't need manufacturers in every country these are expensive things that produces volume and they get scale and good prices at volume but maybe we were a little bit too limited in how we saw. What was the sort of optimal number of suppliers. So i think it's pushed the conversation Which is good and also pushed it to say. We need as berry said we need. We need manufacturing capacity where disease outbreaks happen at the end of the day. Now we have to watch it if you put a a if you put a bit of manufacturing capacity in in country acts that country doesn't also make it a national product. So they're issues around. How do we think about global public goods and make sure people share. But there's two things. I wanna add add specifically to what what what. I think. It's good that we're pushing the conversation on. What is enough supply where should be located and who should have access to that supply particularly in in a pandemic things kind of miss that. I think people have one that. Innovators are only pfizer and or not. We have chinese individuals. We have russian. Innovators we have indian..

"Halima condie in nairobi. Imagine having a handy guide to the united states as a new immigrant. One that tells you how to navigate this strange new place and one that also includes the sights and smells that you'd most miss from back home iranian american writer roy hawkins scripted. This out. Her book is called a beginner's guide to america for the immigrants and the curious. My colleague marco werman spoke with her hocken was at her home in connecticut. Here's marco so i gotta say some of the small details you've observed about the immigrant experience. I actually connect with myself. I notice for example. The bounty in this country when i returned from working in west africa for three years like just the variety and options of breakfast cereal in the supermarket aisle. So i'm wondering what are some of the things that still stop you in your tracks since you arrived in the us some thirty five years ago. What you just pointed out that you know we. Sometimes in america become unaware of diversity that exists not just in our media in our options of reading books publications but also you foods in supermarkets and aisles and aisles of cereal and biscuits and breakfast foods and you know it's easy to be turned off by all of it and say you know americans just have too much but what i try to do at have done in in the past couple of decades thinking through what america means to me is to kind of extract. What all that really means beyond variety. And what i've come to is that it's all about choice. America gives us choices. America enables us to look at what's available and make our own decisions for. That's the positive side. It's about choice I think so because alternatively if we didn't live in a democratic country and you know that was my life once we would not have the choice. The choice was would be imposed on us. You know the varieties would diminish greatly in the numbers and we would have it in some ways. It a bizarre way easier because we would not have the burden of considering a balancing and making a conscious decision of our own for which we will have to bear responsibility so for what it was like In one thousand nine hundred five when you emigrated you're much younger from iran and to now be in this place that was both perplexing and at the same time place that provided safety and Something new that i encounter with america is such a ubiquitous experience. No matter how long passes or has passed between my own arrival and others who have arrived more recently seem to share that experiencing common. I remember being completely disoriented as if my jet lag wasn't just a matter of time difference but was also a matter of continental difference emotional difference intellectual difference and i think i was walking around perfectly disoriented and dizzy for weeks weeks which is what Others who have arrived far more recently than i affirm and say that their experiences in the same. What about the flip side were. There are a couple of things in america where he said That makes total sense. Do you recall the first time. Maybe you had that experience completely. I recall being in the first year of college which came a few months after i had arrived. A boy asked me out and we we were on the beach walking and for a moment he put his hand on my shoulder and at first i panicked because i thought oh. We're going to get arrested because we're not migrate walking together and we're not related. But then i looked at him. And i looked at the beach. I realized that. I'm not where i used to be in america and and that was liberating. It was a wonderful new discovery about being out and about without anxiety. Speaking with poet and writer royal cocky and who writes about the immigrant experience in the us when you left iran in nineteen five The country is going through a lot of change. Do you ever compare the lives of your family. Members today in the us versus frenzy left behind. Iran i do and it's a painful reminder of what an accident are birds and our circumstances lead our lives to become that in other words i simply by being able to leave iran under completely accidental circumstances. Because you know had we applied for our exit visas a couple of months earlier or a couple of months later we may never have received them. You know the idea of this book came to me in two thousand sixteen. When trump gave some of his early speeches about his plans for immigration and one of the ideas in one of the speeches was we cannot accept or we should not accept immigrants. Who don't speak english or have no skills into this country. And i gasped hearing this because i thought oh my god had i been the royal. The person that i was this year trying to get into. I would not have gotten so Because i had neither english nor any skills. So i would have stayed. I would have been kept out of the country that now. I believe to be my home. So what i'm trying to say. Is that the injustice of it. All whether you know barred by circumstances inside on or far potentially by the decision of an american president My life could have been entirely a something different from what it is today. I want to mention also roy. A you're you're an activist. And i know you've taken an interest in the rise of vocal feminism in your native iran is specifically iran's kind of metoo moment So as he speak about what immigrants to the us Experience wondering what women especially might be seeing and learning from the movements in iran and the us right now. I hope what they're learning. Is that first and foremost. Feminism is not a local phenomenon that it is a destiny for all women everywhere around the globe that we are all as women as world citizens are in this fight together And there's a sisterhood. That binds us all together. And if we do not support us if we do not support each other and don't win our battles are struggles against gender inequality all of us at the end suffer writer and poet roya cocky and is the author of the book beginner's guide to america for the immigrant. And the curious. Roy a great meeting. You thank you for your time thank you. I enjoyed it. And here's where we say goodbye for the day but we're always online at the world's dot org the world comes to you from the non and bill harris studio in boston.

"We're bringing in about twenty thousand metric tons of food that'll support about one point three million people the millions of people in need here in the tigray region because of the conflict people are hungry. Support the gop european government and providing a million people with food last week. If you'll be as deputy prime minister domecq mukundan at told reporters that humanitarian relief is a priority government focused on the app station construction and on humanitarian shoes and does simplify addressing. The issues related to refuges refugees. In tigray he's talking about are from neighboring eritrea. they're more than ninety thousand living in refugee camps. Many of them have lived there for years and they're also getting caught up in this recent conflict until recently ethiopia's government was preventing the refugee agency from visiting those camps. But last week. The u n high commissioner for refugees filippo grandi was allowed to visit one of them. This is what refugees told him. They also spoke of infiltration of armed actors in the camps of killings abductions and also. Some forced return to eritrea at the hands of iranian forces. Present in the areas ethiopia has been accused of receiving support from era trained troops during the conflict in tci although both governments have denied this the united states and the un have said there are credible reports at trade and troops have committed rape murder and other crimes in the region. Us has urged era trained troops to leave. I spoke with one eritrean. Refugee living in the ati huddle refugee camp in southern tci asked to remain anonymous fearing for his safety situation is very bad. That is the prager whereas trust fear. From whom is the photos harding. Who in keeping our. He says it's not clear who's responsible for the killing of refugees. Audi had camp where he stays has been spared the worst of the fighting but there are reports of two other refugee camps in northern tigray that have been attacked aid. Buildings destroyed as of today. The un refugee agency has been denied access to those areas officials are urging if the opium to provide full humanitarian access for the world. I'm halima condie in nairobi. We wanna take a moment to remember. One of america's top diplomats at schultz died this weekend at the age of one hundred. He held four. Different cabinet positions under two presidents including secretary of state under ronald reagan but schultz will perhaps be best remembered for his breakthrough summits with russian leader. Mikhail gorbachev that brought an end to the cold war for some perspective. Let me turn to madeleine. Albright who also served as secretary of state under president bill clinton not to mention his clinton's ambassador to the united nations secretary albright. Thank you for being with us to remember. George shultz today. It's my honor that you asked me so. He became secretary state in nineteen eighty two. When u s soviet relations were perhaps at their lowest point. very tense. there was a lot of suspicion and hostility between the superpowers. What was secretary schultz's approach to steering the us. Through that precarious moment. Well he was able to see possibilities for some kind of a way to have a different relationship. It was when there was a new leader gorbachev and he had a foreign minister shevardnadze. Who were people that were also looking for ways to get out of a very dangerous situation so we gotta remember. This was an era. When president reagan had dubbed the soviet union the evil empire there were anti-soviet hardliners with a lot of clout in the white house. How did george shultz buck the prevailing wisdom and win reagan to aside because shelters not anti-soviet per se. Was he well. I think he was very much somebody that could solve problems. That had an understanding of where this country could go what the soviets had mine and of understanding personal relationships and he also had an awful lot of background in terms of what are called bureaucratic politics of being able to deal with other parts of the united states government and of putting himself into other people's shoes whether they were american counterparts or the soviet than he was able to deal with gorbachev and shevardnadze and he saw problem and he wanted to solve it and he was excellent at that edward shevardnadze. That was Gorbachev's foreign minister. Correct exactly yes. No i mean some tantalizing stories have come out since The death of schultz was announced them and one wonders what could have been at the nineteen eighty six summit in reykjavik that engineered. Reagan apparently told gorbachev. It would be fine with me if we eliminated all nuclear weapons. And gorbachev replied. We can do that. That's according to george shultz could scholtz and others have made complete elimination of nuclear weapons or reality in that moment. That's that people talked about. But i think with difficulty even with the great talent. The george shultz had what is interesting. Is that schultz until recently has been still talking an awful lot about the elimination of all nuclear weapons. But it's a real what if in terms of what would have happened earlier and life would have been very different. But i i. It's hard to visualize frankly That the situation would have been such to eliminate all of them at that point so now the crisis of the world faces not the cold war but climate change and interestingly it was a problem that schultz recognize even if not that many people in the mainstream. We're talking about it. He even drove a prius and put solar panels on his roof. He said eight years ago. That fellow republicans who deny climate change would soon be mugged by reality. It's not a matter of opinions a matter of fact that the globe is warming. I have three and persona four great grandchildren. So i'm thinking. I've got to do what i can to see. That they have a decent world and if we let this go on and on the way it's going right now then i'm going to have won the secretary albright. What do you think george. Shultz brand of pragmatism has fallen out of favor with today's republican party. Because he is somebody that i think was in many ways of philosopher and at the same time a scientist in a dreamer. I mean just one of the best combinations of characteristics for anybody to have at. It was an honor and a pleasure to know him madeleine. Albright served as secretary of state under president. Bill clinton she also served as us ambassador to the un madam secretary. Thank you very much..
