UN Resolution 2615(2021) a Roadmap to Peace and Reconstruction.

© UNICEF/Sayed Bidel Families in Afghanistan do not have the money they need, while prices for key commodities continue to rise.
  After a  warning  from the UN Emergency Relief Coordinator  that Afghanistan’s economy is in “free fall” and that if decisive and compassionate action is not taken immediately, it may “pull the entire population with it”.
   Member States alarm by the levels of need and suffering and the eminent collapse of the country, after the chaotic US withdrawal; the UN Security Council on 12/22/21 unanimously adopted a US-proposed resolution 2615 (2021), with the support of India, Russia, China, that facilitates humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, while keeping funds out of Taliban hands.  A move welcomed by the UN Emergency Relief Coordinator as a “milestone” decision that will save lives.
   This resolution could be “milestone” if the UN members Nations learn the lesson of Afghanistan and use it as a roadmap to resolve conflict in the region so member states can move  forward on what they have been warned and agreed also needs collected urgent action, Climate Change.

As members of the Local Peace Economy working make the lives better for the members of our local community. So we must support other local groups working to make the lives better for their local community. We join with the UN in condemning the Israeli government in designating  community groups working to bring freedom to the Palestinian people suffering under the oppression of the Israeli illegal occupation of the Palestinian territories.
Independent UN human rights experts on Monday strongly condemned the decision by the Israeli Minister of Defense to designate six Palestinian human rights and civil society groups, as terrorist organization. In a joint statement, the experts called the decision “a frontal attack on the Palestinian human rights movement, and on human rights everywhere.” “Silencing their voices is not what a democracy adhering to well-accepted human rights and humanitarian standards would do”, they add. Calling upon the international community to act, they argue that anti-terrorism legislation must never be used to unjustifiably undermine civil liberties.

Sept: SDG #17 Partnerships For the Goals

SDG 17: Partnerships For The Goals
The Local Peace Economy joins the United Nations in its call for a Decade of Action to transform the world by 2030. The 2030  Agenda for Sustainable Development 17 goals, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the futureThis  month Sustainable Development Goal the Local Peace Economy is working on is #17 Partnerships For realizing the Sustainable Development Goals.  A successful implementation  of the 17 SDGs  requires inclusive partnerships — at the global, regional, national and local levels — built upon principles and values, and upon a shared vision and shared goals placing people and the planet at the center.
  Since civilization began 5000 years ago, a few men who ruled  mainly as tribal kings, have been at war with each other,  nature and subjugated women. Civilized history has been bloody, where once men hacked each other  and innocent women and children with swords at the local city level, they can now on a global level destroy all of civilization with a push of a button. Their assault on nature has been equally as brutal. Practices on the local level, such as slash and burn, strip mining, clear cutting, over grazing has  lead to deforestation, desertification of millions of acres of once productive land and on a global level  the entire atmosphere is polluted along with all the oceans.  These actions has pushed the earth and civilization to a tipping point. Soon the speed of climate change will outrun civilization’s ability to manage it affects on all life on earth. Continue reading
