"This is the news in brief from the United Nations. Life threatening hunger caused by climate shocks violent and security and disease in the Horn of Africa have left hundreds of thousands facing death and nearly 50 million facing crisis levels of food insecurity, the UN World Health Organization WHO said on Friday. In an appeal for a $178 million to support medical aid relief across 7 countries in the greater horn region, veteran WHO worker Lee spent elbrecht warned that the situation was worse than anything she'd seen in more than two decades in Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, and Uganda. These 48 million people do include as many as a 129,000 who are facing catastrophe and catastrophe that means they are facing starvation and literally looking dead in the eyes. In addition to the dramatic hunger crisis, the greater Horn of Africa region has never seen such a high number of reported disease outbreaks this century. All 7 countries in need of assistance are about the measles and four are fighting cholera, according to the WHO, malaria is also endemic in the region, and on the rise, while dengue was declared for the first time in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, in February. Two Mozambique were coastal communities braced for tropical cyclone Freddy, which was forecast to make landfall late on Friday night into Saturday morning. This will be the second time that the cyclone has hit Mozambique, and the UN world meteorological organization said that Freddie is likely to move slowly near the coastline where it will gain in strength. This could elevate Freddy's intensity before it reaches the coast of Mozambique, said WMO spokesperson Claire nullis. What we do know now is there will be very destructive winds, there'll be very dangerous storm surge on landfall. And there will be extreme rainfall over large areas, not just in Mozambique, but also northeastern Zimbabwe, southeast Zambia, and Malawi. Cumulative rainfall of more than a 150 to 200 millimeters in just 24 hours is expected at the weekend, raising the flood risk for communities in the south of Mozambique, which have already received 500 millimeters in the past 7 days alone. The WMO noted that the death toll from Freddy has been limited because early warnings and accurate forecasting helped to coordinate disaster risk reduction efforts before the cyclone last hit Mozambique on 24th of February. To the Democratic Republic of the Congo, or DRC, where humanitarians have warned that heavy fighting continues to uproot hundreds of thousands of people in the east, violent clashes between non state armed groups and government forces have caused the latest emergency, with 300,000 people forced to flee their homes in North Kivu province in February alone. According to the UN refugee agency UNHCR, a further 20,000 fled earlier this month, with more, here's UNHCR spokesperson, Matthew saltmarsh. Civilians continued to pay a heavy and bloody price for the conflict. Women and children who barely escaped the violence are now sleeping out in the open. Conditions are dire for those arriving at spontaneous or organized sites which the UN refugee agency said were now buckling under the strain. The resurgence of violence in eastern DR Congo has displaced more than 800,000 people since March last year, including towards the provinces of south Kivu and ituri, more than a 130 armed groups operate at the border between diar Congo and Rwanda, including the M 23 militia, which has in the past targeted government forces and the UN peacekeeping mission in the country.

They are expected to discuss the continuation of the successful Black Sea grain initiative set up by the UN to ensure that Ukrainian grain exports and Russian food and fertilizer can reach global markets and stave off famine around the world. Malawi's deadly cholera outbreak could worsen if as expected, tropical cyclone Freddy triggers further heavy rainfall in the south of the country. The UN said on Tuesday, from the UN Children's Fund, UNICEF, Malawi representative Rudolf schwenk said that since the outbreak was officially announced a year ago, cholera has spread to 29 districts across Malawi. All over the country, affecting more than 50,000 people and over 1500 deaths and of these more than 12,000 children have contracted alliance, unfortunately, a 197 almost 200 have died. Ongoing COVID-19 cases across the nation along with an earlier outbreak of cholera in Malawi have drained resources and left health services overwhelmed UNICEF said in a related warning the UN world meteorological organization WMO said that tropical cyclone Freddie will once again bring more heavy rainfall to the south of the country, according to Malawi's national weather service, the development will likely create additional life threatening challenges to communities already struggling as the rainy season reaches its height, combined with the fact that it is now the annual lean season in Malawi. The UN and partners on Tuesday issued an urgent appeal for $876 million to help Rohingya refugees and their hosts in Bangladesh. The funding is needed to support 1.47 million people and involves 116 partners, nearly half of them national organizations from Bangladesh, almost a million Rohingya refugees who fled Myanmar and are now sheltering in Bangladesh will get help, along with nearly half a million bangladeshis in neighboring communities. They'll receive food, shelter healthcare access to drinkable water, protection services, education, as well as livelihood opportunities and training. Women and children make up more than 75% of the targeted refugee population. They face higher risks of abuse, exploitation and gender based violence, warned the UN refugee agency, which noted that more than half of the refugees in camps are under 18, a huge fire on Sunday tore through part of vast Cox's bazaar camp in Bangladesh, leaving thousands without shelter.

"That now we didn't have to know everything about everything. Right. And now we do. So after high school, you go to college at UCLA. And earned a degree in political science. Yeah, why did that happen? Why did that happen? I don't know. Are you interested in politics? I think I saw the movie Wall Street and I thought that that Gordon gecko. Yeah, I figured that's what I should do. I did not like it, but I had everything kind of mapped out and was going to get my poli sci degree and go to law school. So I think it was my second year in college. I took some sort of graduate level like pre law class. It was part of the honors program. And I literally got in there. I had no idea what we were doing. They were doing a moot court. I think I freaked out and didn't go to the class. I think I sobbed in front of the professor and somehow got out of it with the sea and left. And I'm like, this is not for me. And I knew that in this, I'm not cut out for this. And it was probably the wrong class to throw a 19 year old in. Or maybe some 19 year olds, but not for me. But I stayed with it because I was so far into the major because I did business and honors and poli sci. So I just stayed with it. And it was an interesting degree, but I should have been a communications major. Like hands down, I have no idea why, and it's my own fault for not digging into the possibilities, but I just have to say, it's my own responsibility to have created a support system for me, but I just didn't have people around me to guide me. And I wish that I would have taken more advantage of that. I feel like as a parent, I'm more connected with what is available for my kids than my parents ever were. But that's still my responsibility. I should have figured it out. But I think that's different too, maybe it's not for everybody, but I was completely on my own. I mean, I went to college to be a band director and then the only reason I went into got my degree in PR, but the only reason was because I had a friend whose sister was in PR. And I'm like, that sounds fun. Yeah. That was my whole process. Yeah. I think there's more, maybe. I don't know. I think that there may be a little more guidance and a little more maybe more resources for young people. But I'm not entirely sure okay. Worked out fine. And I loved school. So where did you do after graduation? Oh, so I graduated and I'm smiling because, boy, I ended up as an account executive at the second alternative rock station in the U.S. so at the time it was 91 X in San Diego and anyone that knows what that whole scene was like there was Cara K rock in Los Angeles and then 91 X was the second one. In fact, their logo, if anyone is familiar with 91 X and there may be some listeners, it's the same logo that they had. They haven't changed it. And it's basically, I just, it was really fun. It was a complete transition into what, you know, alternative music was. So what was alternative rock in this time period in the 80s? You're talking about. Wow. So it would have been like the cure and Depeche Mode. And the facts and I mean, just any of that. Yeah, I mean, it basically was what was on MTV. And so it was just a different type of experience. And it was also the 80s and there were just, it was a little wild. But it was great training and we had a lot of fun. And that's ultimately where I met. My husband. Okay. We'll come back to him in a second. Yeah. Were you selling time were you an account executive or what was your role count executive? And I basically started with no account list and strike commission. So you're going door to door? We made phone calls. Made phone calls, and it was extremely intimidating. I was 22. Right out of school. And the majority of the aes are counting executives were men in probably the early late 20s or early 30s, but you know, when you're a 22 year old, those are grown people, right? And of course, they are like kind of obnoxious and they look at me and be like everything. Would you sell today, you know? And I was just terrified. And you're in this room with a bunch of cubicles and everyone can hear you. And somehow I didn't fail. But I learned a lot. I learned a lot about sales that I learned about being kind of fearless in a very, very tough. And often very inappropriate. Environment. By inappropriate, I mean some sexism going on. Oh, absolutely. And things like go to Mexico because I'd be calling on some of the nightclubs. Go to Mexico, go pick up a $1000 and bring that back over the border. Those kind of things, or yeah. Yeah, I see your face. Those are things that I was expecting. Yeah. Those are things that you did. You got to call on the nightclubs, and then you had to go basically pick up the cash. So they just things that wouldn't happen today. Interesting. It was just, you know, this was not the radio station I worked at, but there was a station in San Diego, where when the women made a sale, they would go stand on a table and they would take a bell and hold it between their knees and ring it. Now the male account executives did not have to do that, but the women did. And somebody actually called them on it and there was a lawsuit. And that was what I remember being like the beginning of the change toward. This is what we do at work on this is what we don't do at work. There weren't a lot of rules back in the day. The 80s were different. The ideas were different. Yeah. Yeah, so you met your husband doing radio. I did. So I want to hear that story. Oh, so we met at a Jason Jennings sales seminar, Jason Jennings was a sales trainer. Okay. And I do remember meeting him. He had just been hired and I remember meeting him and he was doing that he was an account executive in the county executive also, and I remember we were friends for a long time, but I do remember sitting in the back of various workshops and seminars and probably not paying attention and writing notes or I don't know what we did. How did you end up in Tallahassee? So we were one of the mom and pop owner operators and we, if anyone remembers the old WMO radio station, mellow one O 5 melanoma 5. So we bought that and we actually flipped it to a hot AC, which was live one O 5 and ran that for several years. And then sold it to, I guess, I don't know who the I think it's been sold several times, but it's the hot one of four 9 property rights. Okay, so let's stop there for a second. You know, being an AE at a radio station is different than owning a radio station. So how did you all end up owning your own radio station? That would be a much better question for my husband than for me. Okay. But he that was always something that he had wanted to do. And again, this was many years ago. I'm going to say it was 25 years ago when you still could actually. Somebody could do that. Somebody could do that. And so but that was pretty cool. It was pretty cool. It was a different Tallahassee, 25 years ago, and

This is despite a slight reduction in emissions. Owing to the covid nineteen pandemic carbon dioxide is the most important of several greenhouse gases that trap heat in the atmosphere and contribute to climate change. Its levels have risen by forty eight percent since pre industrial times. Wmo said in a press conference. Here's oxana tarassova.

Breaking the wrong kinds of records: 2019 state of climate report
"Several climate records were broken in two thousand nineteen across the world including unprecedented temperature highs and extreme weather events ahead of the launch of the World Meteorological Organization's flagship report. Wmo's statement on the state of the global climate in two thousand and nineteen the agency. Secretary-general Patera tell us. Sat Down with Ben Maller from you and news and started by outlining some of the main points from the study. For example we have Highest concentration of carbon dioxide in past three million years and the measurement survey showing that last year. We we again. Having Having Higher Gordon Thracians from carbon dioxide than the previous year. Shame is happening for for me. Which is the second most important greenhouse gas and we have seen the warming of the temperature continued and we have broken several. Reads NOT AMBULATORY COHORTS IN AUSTRALIA? In several West European countries and also elsewhere last year was the warmest euro regard since eighteen fifty. Then we have seen we have stored more than ninety percent of the extra heat. The Ocean send an awesome. Seawater is Is Record warm because of that? And that's giving more. Nfc for the tropical tropical storms sea level rise continues and it has been boosting so we have seen an increase in the sea level rise also also last last year the glacier's melting worldwide. And we have especially been melting the glacier greenland which is contributing to sea level rise and and also the melting. Glaciers are melting and. That's bad news when it comes to Freshwater released to the major rivers Sir in the world come having written from Malaya's absurd and Ian tweets and rocky mountain so that's bad news for the freshwater resources for agriculture and for human beings and industry so all in all climate saints continues and we have also seen a record breaking forest fires like in Australia. It's very had before that record breaking temperatures and android and we have seen also severe drought in in Mexico Caribbean in some parts of Europe and also Southam South African countries. So all in all records have been broken. Bad died records. How confident are you that governments around the world have really caught onto the seriousness of this message so that they could take the right action for sake of the people around the world? I think that the way honest is Is higher than ever but the accent is sir very much missing. Countries made their parish blitzes and to fifteen and that would mean three degrees warming story beyond the parish. One point five two degrees and and and so far. The countries haven't been fulfilling their research glitzy so severe not moving towards one point five to decrease which is the Paris limits north towards three degrees with with the blitzes. The country's made we are moving the worst four to five degrees by the end of the sensory. They're clearly a need for for higher ambition level of if we are serious with climate mitigation. There is a target for all Governments. All the people everybody concerned to try and turn the situation around by the year twenty fifty which is the deadline for that shipment of the sustainable development goals. Is that still realistic with all? These bad records be have also seen but it the development there for example private sector is more and more interested in in in being part of the solution and we have also studying finance sector moving their investments from fossil business to watch the watch more sustainable business and and also the you would movement is putting pressure on governments and and people all around the world. They understand that this is this is perhaps the number one problem that we the mankind is facing today so there are also plenty of good science that the that the that the we have started moving in the right direction actually in the developed countries Last year their missions dropping habits. It's good news. Despite the economic was Was growing and we have been able to solve that you can eat that economic growth from from Damian growth. The but the bad news is that in in the rest of the world missions growing last year. And that's one of the one of the Tennessee so to solve this problem. We have to have all of the countries onboard compare this year to the previously. What would you say in himself? The preparedness by everyone every government every megyn institution to tackle extreme. What within this year so my organization's very much supporting our members to improve their early warning capacity and this kind of early warning of of drought Flooding storm sewer and record temperatures. That's a very powerful way to adapt to climate says this negative trend in climate. We'll continue for the coming decade caged anyhow which means growing out of weather related disasters and and and we have to be prepared for that. And we have to invest in early warning services and it's important to invest also on impact based forecasting for example when when cyclone hitting Mozambique get amid series was able to forecast meteorologist parameters well but impacts of those understood and that's why the disaster was a having lots of casualties and lots of economic losses because the authorities didn't act and the impact was understood so from W. Most side We're happy to help. The country's built their impact based early warning. Service kept musty. Doubly from your stigma just now is having better capacity to alert people in better time to prepare for any disasters. That come is that correct. So we are we are. We are member based organization. We have another nine hundred thousand members of our member. Member hasn't National Meteorology Service and we are very much set. Transform forming the know how from our more developed members are less developed members and we are working together with the financial institutions like World Bank cleaned climate fund and UNDP target more resources for for this kind of capacity development. So the situation is improving all the time but but we still have plenty of countries about half of our member. Countries could improve their performance. Is that too was making Elliot Warning Betta to save lives to save situations to prepare people better. How good is the early warning system improvement over the last year? So we have seen a gradual improvement. That's one of the one of the issues most dealing dealing with and what we've able to forecast the one day before In in the past we can now forecast it even five days in advance and and and countries are much better prepared even in developing countries. We have seen a major major improvement but we are not. We haven't been able to reach the optimization yet. There shouldn't further investments needed by the donors and also by individual governments. And that's very powerful way to adapt and protect economists and and people from the impacts of climate says all of us anywhere around the world. Everybody is preoccupied with the outbreak of Kobe. Nineteen which is leading to significant downturn in economic activity around the world in the same way those trillion fire saw a rise in co two emissions. Is there any silver lining in the way that the world is trying to handle of igniting in the form of any spin offs in terms of lower emissions during this period? Of course Would be very much concern of the casualties that we ever had because of this virus and the story is not over yet so it may have a negative impact on on the global economy. Which is bad news and and we have already seen has having an impact on the on the equality in China for example once they have been closing closing some parts of the country and And there's been less less traffic and less industrial production but the but this is not good news. So all in all. Be Concerned of this Of the casualties related these vitals. And and have you hoped at these outbreak We will be solved and and and we can go back to normal life and keep in mind that the that we still have the major climate. The problem to be solved. So these these spite of these fighters it'll keep continue based for mitigation of climate change.

Sometimes you need to call in big tech from American public media. This is marketplace. Tech demystifying the digital economy, I'm Ali would. You're on marketplace tech, we've been covering how technology helps us adapt to climate change in our series. How we survive to start with you have to understand the problem and create smart solutions? That's the job of the Chesapeake conservancy, a nonprofit organisation that uses technology to recommend conservation techniques for the Chesapeake Bay and a lot of it comes down to the resolution of the data. Jeff Allenby is director of conservation technology at the Chesapeake conservancy. Now, one thing to know is that the Chesapeake Bay watershed is huge. It's sixty four thousand square miles, spanning six eastern US states and the organization mapped the whole area down to the meter the data set. That'd be created for the Chesapeake of that one, meter resolution was instill is one of the biggest high resolution they uncovered data sets ever created in the world. It took Allenby's team eighteen months and more than. Million dollars to manually process that data as in people having to identify things like the characteristics of a tree or label a house, a house. Then they use the data to advise towns on what to prioritize, whether it's planting trees or restoring wetlands or buying land to conserve and once word got out lots of other nonprofits like around the Great Lakes, wanted to do the same thing with map data. Most don't have the time or the money, but big tech companies do budget simply can't be a barrier to people accessing technology, Lucas Joppa leads Microsoft's AI for earth program, which lends the company's computing power and machine. Learning capabilities to organizations trying to tackle climate solutions the program worked with the Chesapeake conservancy to scale up their approach to land mapping to a much bigger area and faster. We wanted to do that, for the entire United States over ten trillion pixels and it can't take a year and a half to do it. Because if it does you're going to be out of date by the time. You're done right. The company awards grants. Let's organizations and scientists use its cloud computing resources and loans out data scientists to various climate related projects, Joppa, says right now AI for earth isn't meant to be a money maker, but he says tech companies have a responsibility to be part of climate solutions beyond their own in house efforts. We've gotta make sure that we have our own house in order. But then we do have to be proactive in going out and, and ensuring that our products are deployed in ways that empower people to amplify their sustainability impact. And there's business value for Microsoft, and being there, first, where a platform company, and we would prefer to be the platform of choice for everybody. Building technology inspired solutions to environmental challenges for Jeff Allenby at the Chesapeake conservancy, the real value comes and being able to know what's working, and what's not so you know what to conserve and what to let go. So from the side of it, it really allows you to, to understand the context. Of kind of any given action. And it allows you to understand the alternatives. If that action can't go forward and Allenby says those decisions have to be made quickly because there isn't any time to waste. And now I am related links.
