A new report exploring the impact of climate change in Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East and North Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia finds that warming of close to 1.5°C above pre-industrial times is already locked into the Earth’s atmospheric system by past and predicted greenhouse gas emissions. Without concerted action to reduce emissions, the planet is on pace for 2°C warming by mid-century and 4°C or more by the time today’s teenagers are in their 80s. Everyone will feel the impact, particularly the poor, as weather extremes become more commons and risks to food, water, and energy security increase.

IFAW releases the report Wanted – Dead or Alive; Exposing Online Wildlife Trade and the scale of the trade is truly staggering. In just six weeks in early 2014 it was founded 33,006 live wild animals and their parts and products available for sale on 280 online marketplaces in 16 different countries. Take that figure and then imagine how many wild animals suffer for this needless trade across all the countries of the globe every day of the year. The World Wide Web puts so many endangered animals at risk from trade.

The 2014 Global Report on Trafficking in Persons shows that one in three known victims of human trafficking is a child - a 5 per cent increase compared to the 2007-2010 period. Girls make up 2 out of every 3 child victims, and together with women, account for 70 per cent of overall trafficking victims worldwide. "The report shows there is no place in the world where children, women and men are safe from human trafficking," said UNODC Executive Director Yury Fedotov "Official data reported to UNODC by national authorities represent only what has been detected. It is very clear that the scale of modern-day slavery is far worse."

Le « droit à la vie » est aujourd’hui ce que l’on pourrait appeler un « syntagme galopant ». Sa prolifération s’opère par contact, là où la sphère juridique rencontre le biologique, où le politique se noue au médical, où l’environnemental rencontre à son tour l’économique, etc. Son expansion accompagne toutes les équivoques de la globalisation en cours – la montée des normes immunitaires appliquées à toutes les formes du vivant, et plus seulement à l’humain, un processus dont l’envers est l’intensification de la sensibilité à l’exposition (les risques démultipliés), mais aussi la montée des violences bien réelles qui mettent à mal la vie des hommes dans leur environnement.

Afghan women are consistently excluded from Afghanistan’s peace negotiations and formal talks about the country’s future, international agency Oxfam said. Unless this discrimination is reversed, peace will be unsustainable, Afghanistan’s development will be compromised, and enormous human rights gains made since the fall of the Taliban will remain under threat.

Over the last few years Moldova has stood as the "success story" of the Eastern Partnership - even though there are still many reforms to be made, e.g. on corruption and institutional reforms. This model remains however extremely fragile for economic, political and geopolitical reasons. This is why Moldova has found itself in a difficult position during the crisis in Ukraine, which, apart from dividing public opinion, is also a source of fear over the sovereignty of Transnistria. The future of Moldova is still open as the electoral outcomes on 30th November are still uncertain, leaving the country with several scenarios.
