The impacts of climate change in Africa

Last Monday, we were live on Facebook with Andrew Mambondiyani, Hala Burma, Irene Dankelman, Laurie van der Burg and Kirsten Meijer to discuss the impacts of climate change on the African continent. Why is that African people are hit so hard by climate change? What is the impact they see and feel? What can we do in the Netherlands to support these people? And why is it so important to also look at gender in this regard?

The impacts of climate change: what's happening on the African continent?

The climate is changing: it’s getting hotter, we experience periods of droughts alternated with heavy rainfall and extreme weather. In the Netherlands, this means that we can enjoy our beaches more during the summer, that we have less snow and more rain in the winter, and will there ever be another Elfstedentocht for iceskating? We adapt to these circumstances, buying air conditioners for in the summer and preparing our rivers to take up more water. The impacts of climate change are not really hindering our lives… yet.

Senegal: High employment aspirations and high unemployment rate

In Senegal, youngsters generally have very high employment aspirations. Becoming a lawyer, data scientist, or doctor are examples of answers of primary and secondary school students during our last interview in Dakar. At the same time, high unemployment rates of highly-educated individuals are prevailing, and the state aims to educate more young people (Boccanfuso et al. 2015: 2). Therefore, it seems as if the current education is not entirely in the interest of the labor market. With this assumable paradox, the question arises: what is the role of education? To understand this, we need to have a more significant understanding of the context of Senegal’s education and how it is affected.

Migratiebeleid vanuit arbeidsperspectief

Met de verkiezingen over minder dan 9 maanden, zijn de meeste politieke partijen druk bezig met het schrijven van hun verkiezingsprogramma’s. Zo ook de PvdA. Vanuit de Buitenlandcommissie is de notitie “Een PvdA-migratiebeleid vanuit ons arbeidsperspectief” geschreven en ingediend. Want migratie is van alle tijd en daarom moet er een eerlijk migratiebeleid komen gebaseerd op feiten en een aanpak per migrantencategorie die elke groep recht doet. Hoe moet volgens u het migratiebeleid van het volgende kabinet eruit zien?
