In a bid to cut the use of helicopters for air delivery of vegetable oil by 50 percent, saving the operation a potential $14 million per year, WFP logistics teams carried out the first successful airdrop in South Sudan. “It was the first time we were delivering oil by parachutes and everyone was very nervous but I must say it has been quite some success,” said Adham Effendi, WFP Logistics Officer who supervised the test of the innovative system. “We still need to improve the system to ensure minimal losses and operational efficiency but I am hopeful that in the next few months we would be doing several airdrops of oil.”
(www.abndigital.com) World food prices rose to a record high last month on higher sugar, grain and oilseed costs and food prices may rise more unless the world grain crop increases "significantly" this year. Despite the bleak outlook the agricultural sector in Africa is receiving a significant boost. Last year the World Food Programme purchased 328 million US dollars worth of food from countries in Africa and the number is set to grow during the course of this year. Not only are these initiatives aiding food security but they're also helping to develop intra Africa trade. ABN's Bronwyn Seaborne reports.

We are coordinating closely with the UN High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) for this response.

A panel discussion organised by the Oxford Water Network and the Oxford Martin Programme on Resource Stewardship Africa faces formidable development challenges in the 21st Century, with expanding populations and accelerating urbanisation; rising demand for water, energy and food; greater hydrological variability predicted with climate change; and persistent poverty and inequalities. Dams seem to promise an appealing package of benefits to meet Africa’s development needs – they can reduce floods, store water for irrigation, provide energy for burgeoning populations and facilitate regional integration. Yet, the benefits and costs of dams are not distributed evenly and new large dams are planned that could alter the political, social and water landscape of the region. What is the role for da...

Newham food hygiene officer Matt investigates 'beds in restaurants' - the alarming practice of workers sleeping in kitchens. He has found 12 cases of people living in kitchens in the past few years. Jenny, from the Chartered Institute for Environmental Health, says that anyone sleeping in a kitchen presents a health risk to any customer. It is estimated that there are more than one million cases of food poisoning every year in the UK. And almost half of these are the result of dodgy cooking by family and friends. Chris visits the Brixton home of Dave and Rich, who are cooking that Great British favourite, a roast lamb dinner, for their friends. Our resident expert Ben casts his eye over the kitchen and offers advice on how to cook the lamb and vegetables safely. Lamb can contain E. coli ...

Just a few years ago, the world was on track if not to eliminate hunger then at least to reduce it gradually. That changed in 2016, when the number of people suffering from an empty stomach started to grow again and in several countries, hunger morphed into famine. What would it take to reverse the trend? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by joined by David Beasley, Executive Director of the World Food Program.

How much profit is fair? To find out more and get teaching resources, go to www.whypoverty.net Rüschlikon is a village in Switzerland with a very low tax rate and very wealthy residents. But it receives more tax revenue than it can use. This is largely thanks to one resident - Ivan Glasenberg, CEO of Glencore, whose copper mines in Zambia are not generating a large bounty tax revenue for the Zambians. Zambia has the 3rd largest copper reserves in the world, but 60% of the population live on less than $1 a day and 80% are unemployed. Based on original research into public documents, the film describes the tax system employed by multinational companies in Africa.
