Ethiopia launches 150 billion USD green growth strategy
Addis Ababa, November 19 (WIC) - Ethiopia on Friday launched a green economic growth strategy whose implementation requires 150 billion US dollars over 20 years. Dubbed Climate Resilient Green Economy (CRGE), the initiative sets out the dual objective of lifting Ethiopia to middle income economy by 2025 while keeping greenhouse gas emissions constant. The CRGE makes Ethiopia the first African country with such implementation strategy. “The problem we have in Africa is of implementation. But the CRGE could be replicated in other African countries to resolve this,” Dr. Ababa Haile-Gabriel, Director of AU’s Rural Economy and Agriculture Department, told PANA after the launch.

City Reopens Park After Protesters Are Evicted

New York City on Tuesday reopened the park in Lower Manhattan where the Occupy Wall Street movement was born not long after a judge upheld the city’s move to clear the park and bar the protesters from bringing back their tents or staying overnight.

The Occupy movement groups all over the United States are being evicted from their camp ground. It seems the authorities have had enough of the protesters. The protesters were demanding for fair equity and equal opportunity to succeed since 1% of the US population controls most of the US wealth!

Dogs of War: Hanging off the Cliff!
Zeru Hagos Nov 14, 2011- Despite the draught faced by pastoralists in the border area in Oromia and Somali regions, the Ethiopian economy is humming. Unhindered by the economic turbulence of Europe and political turbulence of North Africa and Middle East, the country has registered remarkable economic growth. The country’s new status has not been missed by foreign investors since many of them are flying in to the country to invest. Many foreign companies and potential investors from Germany, India and China, to mention few, have shown interest to invest. These being the reality EPRDF distracters from near and far have been trying to paint Ethiopia with a bleak image.

Yaw Kwakye Davis Nov 14, 2011- The Nile River and the history of men and women of North and East Africa have been intertwined since the beginnings of recorded time. The pharaohs of Lower Egypt (closest to the Nile river/Mediterranean Sea delta), were always concerned that the pharaohs of Upper Egypt, based in the South near Aswan would divert the Nile River and thus cause havoc to the economy of Lower Egypt. The diverting of the Nile was unrealistic but this fear was utilized for political reasons to polarize the people of Lower Egypt.
