In partnership with the African Development Bank Group, the Swiss Confederation, through the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), and Spain announced today at COP 27, additional financial support to African countries and cities most affected by climate change.

Switzerland and Spain have confirmed that they will each donate around €5 million to the African Development Bank Group’s Urban and Municipal Development Fund (UMDF), a thematic trust fund that helps vulnerable African countries boost equitable, green and climate-resilient urbanization.

Africa is expected to face the fastest urban growth rate in the world, at around 3.2% per year. By 2050, around 1.5 billion people are expected to live in Africa’s cities – an additional urban population of 900 million people. At the same time, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, African countries remain the most vulnerable to climate change and are the least prepared to deal with its impacts.

Commenting on the announcement, Ambassador Dominique Paravicini, Head of Economic Cooperation and Development at SECO and Swiss Governor of the African Development Bank, affirmed Switzerland’s recognition of the importance of cities for economic development, as well as their impact and vulnerability to climate change.

“Having successfully established its African Cities Program, the Urban and Municipal Development Fund should now be able to extend its valuable support to more cities across the African continent. SECO is therefore increasing its contribution by 4, CHF 9 million Part of it is earmarked for cities in emerging economies such as Egypt, Ghana and South Africa Switzerland expects its contribution to have a catalytic effect on other potential donors for them to increase their contributions to the Fund,” he said.

Senior Climate Finance Advisor at the Spanish Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation, Ramón López Pérez, said: “Spain recognizes the important role that the African Development Bank Group plays in promoting economic progress and society in Africa. In times of uncertainty and despite the current widespread budgetary constraints following the extraordinary expenses due to the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this new contribution reaffirms Spain’s strong support for the AfDB.

Thanking partners for their support, Mike Salawou, Director, Infrastructure and Urban Development Department, African Development Bank Group said, “The support from the governments of Switzerland and Spain is invaluable. This additional budget will energize the activities of UMDF, allowing us to help support better urban governance and planning and to ensure that partner cities develop in a sustainable and climate-optimized way”.

Officials are urging low-income Texans to apply as soon as possible for a reopened state-run program that helps eligible applicants pay their energy bills, the Dallas Morning News reported on Tuesday.

Renters and homeowners with a household income below 150% of the federal poverty level — or $34,545 for a family of three — are eligible to apply for the Texas Utility Assistance Program. According to the Morning News, at least one member of the applicant household must be a US citizen or “qualified alien.”

Applicants who receive funding can use the money to pay overdue energy bills or allocate up to $2,400 towards future energy payments. Texans can use the funds to cover electricity, natural gas and propane expenses; the state maintains a separate fund to help qualified applicants pay their sewage and water bills, according to the Morning News.

The program was originally launched in July with the help of an infusion of federal funding from the Low Income Energy Assistance Program. It was closed shortly after due to overwhelming demand, the Morning News reported.

“We are happy to be able to reopen energy assistance and help even more people…Although funds are limited, [the agency] is committed to helping as many households as possible gain a sense of stability and security for these basic needs,” Bobby Wilkinson, executive director of the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, told the Morning News.

Energy costs have skyrocketed in Texas this year, with 45% of Texans giving up basic necessities to pay their energy bills, according to a Census Bureau summer survey.

Apprentices and trades will get a helping hand to meet cost-of-living expenses if Labor wins re-election on November 26.

The Labor Party has pledged to invest $9.7 million to ease the cost of living and make vehicle registration free for eligible apprentices.

He also promised to create an apprenticeship task force to improve safety and fairness for apprentices early in their careers, as well as a parliamentary inquiry to crack down on bosses and contractors who refuse to pay their pennies. – contractors for completed work.

Apprentices who need their car to work are currently entitled to a 50% discount on their registration, saving them $432 per year. This change would make registration completely free, a savings of up to $865 per year.

Prime Minister Daniel Andrews said apprentices were the cornerstone of the great state building.

“We know that too many trades fall victim to wage theft or waste too much time researching late payments for jobs. This is unacceptable and the Labor Party will do something about it,” he said.

Roads and Traffic Safety Minister Ben Carroll said bricklayers, carpenters, joiners, electricians, plumbers and chefs will be among the apprentices eligible for free registration.

NEW BERN, NC (WITN) – Officers with an East Carolina police department are getting extra help while in the field.

Senator Thom Tillis recently announced $1 million in grants to North Carolina law enforcement agencies.

As part of this award, the New Bern Police Department will receive $350,000.

Funding comes from the US Department of Justice’s Community Oriented Policing Services – or COPS programs for crisis intervention.

The department already has crisis advisers, or “co-respondents”.

“If an officer is on the scene and they need a co-respondent, roughly an available officer, we will go through the police department and pick up the co-respondent and take them to that location,” said said Lt. Donald. McInnis explained.

However, now with the grant, McInnis says what is currently just two crisis workers – will soon become a team of them.

As McInnis points out, the need for crisis intervention on calls involving behavioral and developmental health issues is common.

“In the first six months, co-responders answer about 200 calls; you have a trained behavioral health professional who can handle that aspect of the call,” McInnis said.

New Bern police say about 88% of their calls involving a crisis counselor prevented involuntary commitments to rehab centers or arrests.

NAC Group incorporating independent training provider NA College aims to expand its industry-focused professional education following a management buyout (MBO), which was backed by loan funding from Shard Credit Partners.

The provision of loan funding from Shard Credit Partners also represents its growing support for the education sector with this latest investment aimed at providing greater opportunities for young people to pursue careers in the engineering and automotive sectors.

Founded by Paul and Wendy Robson, the Washington-based training company offers a suite of courses ranging from academic engagement activities to highly respected apprenticeships and post-19 skills programs.

Originally created to support apprenticeships and skills development for the advanced automotive manufacturing sector, NA College now works with a wide range of employers with professional training in areas such as business improvement, lean manufacturing, engineering, supply chain, warehousing and management.

Beginning in 2020, NA College also partnered with the North East Institute of Technology (IoT), a collaboration between colleges of education, universities, and major employers to strengthen the provision of higher technical education in the region. . The IoT training offering is designed to meet employers’ emerging demand for skills in the areas of digital, electrification and sustainability and business improvement to train future leaders to support the transition to a Net-zero economy.

Currently holding an Ofsted ‘Good’ rating, NA College also works in partnership with New College Durham, South Tyneside Council, Sunderland College and provides services through the Department of Education (DfE).

The MBO was led by four members of the college’s leadership team, Lisa Snaith, who took on the role of Chief Financial and Executive Officer, Margherita Pasquariello, Chief Strategy and Executive Officer, Steve Pallas, Director of Operations, and Lindsey Vickerson, Head of HR and ESG. Paul Robson will remain with the company as president.

Corporate finance advice was provided to management and Shard Credit Partners by Newcastle-based RG Corporate Finance, led by partner and head of corporate finance Carl Swansbury, CF director Rhiannon Nightingale and CF Senior Manager Connor McBride.

Legal advice for Shard Credit Partners was provided by Andrew Madden, Alison Davidson-Cox and Andrew Cowan of Gateley Plc, while the management team was advised by Paul Christian, Imogen Holland and Nicole Axon of Ward Hadaway. Financial due diligence was undertaken on behalf of Shard Credit Partners by RMT, led by Michael Cantwell and Ayden De Beer.

Paul and Wendy Robson received corporate finance advice from TIG Corporate Finance, led by Barry Gill, with legal advice from Mark Lazenby, a partner at commercial law firm Square One Law.

Lisa Snaith said: “The demand for high quality skills training is growing, both from young people who recognize apprenticeship as a valuable route to a career, and from employers who use our training to improve productivity and stay competitive.

“NA College has built an excellent reputation in the manufacturing and engineering markets, particularly automotive, and we are very proud to be able to build on the company’s outstanding accomplishments under the leadership of Paul and Wendy as owners of the business, working closely with Shard Credit Partners.

Alastair Brown, CEO of Shard Credit Partners, said:

“For the economy to succeed, it is essential that the UK closes the skills gaps that exist in key industries with the support of high quality training providers such as NA College.

“We are also delighted to support, which is unfortunately still quite rare, a buy-out management team mainly led by women. With our financial support, we strongly hope that the college will improve its offer of courses and training opportunities to meet changing business needs.

Carl Swansbury, Partner and Head of Corporate Finance at RG Corporate Finance, said:

“Shard Credit Partners has identified the opportunity to support the new principals in their ambitions for the college to play a greater role in vocational training in the North East. Private training providers such as NA College are a key contributor to meeting the skills needs of the UK and in particular of critical industries such as advanced manufacturing. We look forward to seeing the leadership team and Shard continue to grow and develop NA College in the months and years to come.

The world must wake up quickly and respond seriously to President Félix Tshisekedi’s call to support the development of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, including in areas such as renewable energy, education, health and the creation of jobs (Video interview, October 19). COP27 is an important opportunity to signal this intention, as part of a broader engagement with Africa on climate change mitigation and adaptation, energy, agriculture and finance.

Tshisekedi made a compelling case at the FT Africa conference on the need for his country to move quickly to a more inclusive and prosperous society. He indicated that oil and gas exploration in vital forest and peatland areas of the DRC, including Virunga National Park, remains a viable option for his administration. It would be disingenuous of developed countries to expect otherwise or to make the abolition of these licenses a condition of development cooperation.

This is all the more true since the world’s largest emitters are so far from meeting their own emission reduction commitments, and also falling woefully short of their climate finance obligations.

It is undeniable, as the President says, that the international community bears a huge responsibility to help the DRC protect its forests, and to provide significant financial flows to help the country follow a different economic path.

The G7 and other like-minded nations should urgently come up with a credible partnership modeled in part on the Just Energy Transition Partnership struck between South Africa, the EU, the UK and others at of COP26 on coal.

Such an arrangement could be further strengthened by mobilizing significant additional financial flows from global carbon markets to the Congo Basin.

Any such partnership should be linked to a broader structural effort to help the DRC repatriate more profits from its other assets, including its mining sector, which would generate more jobs and tax revenue, while preserving the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities. .

Going into the second half, Houston stayed on offense and missed a third as a shot from Matthews hit the crossbar. The momentum never faltered as the Cougars extended their lead to 3-0 as Singleton doubled and picked up his brace with a goal in the 67e minute.

Temple pushed to pull one back in the final 15 minutes of the game, but Houston’s defense was too strong as the Cougars closed out the game with a win.

Singleton scored two goals on four shots, finishing the season as Houston’s leading scorer with five goals. Goalkeeper Haley Woodward earned his second career clean sheet with three saves on the night.
