What’s infrastructure got to do with it?

“Scaling up Africa’s infrastructure to meet the MDGs” was unusual for three reasons. First, it was on infrastructure, a topic that is not usually associated with the MDGs, but—as the moderator Jeff Sachs pointed out—is central to meeting all the MDGs, either through its impact on economic growth, or through the effects of electricity, transport, and ICT on maternal and child health, for instance.

Tragic Loss

Sadly, Fetlework Kidane passed away on September 14, 2010 of a car accident while on her way to work in Rochester, NY. Her body is being transferred to her hometown of Mekelle, Tigray, Ethiopia. The Internment will be held in Mekkelle in the presence of family, relatives and friends. We would like to thank everyone who helped us with finances, counseling and sharing our grief. Thank you also, for being at our side at this difficult time.

Eritrea may become failed state, warns think-tank
Eritrea may become a failed state if the world community fails to engage with the Horn of Africa nation, a think-tank has warned. The International Crisis Group says Eritrea is under severe stress, with the economy in free fall. This is a marked deterioration from the situation 10 years ago, when Eritrea was challenged but stable, it says. The ICG's Mark Schneider said if things continued as they were, the situation in Eritrea was "in danger of implosion" as the authoritarian government of President Isaias Afewerki was haemorrhaging legitimacy

Eritrea: The Siege State -A major report on Eritrea by the International Crisis Group
Eritrea has been deeply troubled since independence in 1991. Following the devastating war with Ethiopia (1998-2000), an authoritarian, militarised regime has further tightened political space, tolerating neither opposition nor dissent. Relations are difficult with the region and the wider international community. At African Union (AU) behest, the UN Security Council imposed sanctions in 2009 for its support of the Somali Islamic insurgency.

Ethiopia has accepted the border ruling and has been ready to engage Eritrea and its one man regime with the second stage of the process. The border issue is not and can not be the reason for the unimaginable misery the Eritrean people are facing today!

Cash on Delivery: A New Approach to Foreign Aid
I call this thinking outside the box. The approach to the solution is based on mutual respect and understanding. Define the core problem and establishing a sustainable, scalable and transparent process to achieve the expected measurable result.


My Story! I would like to express my support and gratitude to you personally and the prestigious Columbia University for inviting Prime Minister Meles Zenawi to give a speech on the current global economy and its impact in Africa.
