Bhutan turns an environmental challenge into employment opportunity for a young population desperate for re-entering the job market. An eco-friendly initiative offers training and employment to young people in drug rehabilitation centers and contributes to reduce the environmental impact of 100 tones of paper waste a year. The solution promotes the use of locally produced egg trays from recycled materials to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and reliance on imported carbon intense trays transported from other countries. It also contributes to the economic and social reintegration of the youth. Neighboring countries are looking how they can replicate and scale up the success of Bhutan’s initiative.

This solution helped transform the waste management of hospitals in Nepal towards a safe and environmental system using awareness and capacity building of the public through training and media campaigns, as well as training of helathcare practitioners. Three model hospitals inspired others to consider safer and environmentally sound ways to deal with hazardous and non-hazardous health care waste. All activities combined contributed to the enactment and implementation of national waste management policies across the healthcare sector, and resulted in three international and national awards.

To address the root causes of vulnerability and to increase the productivity and market access of smallholder farmers, the Government of Zimbabwe requested China’s support. China’s experience on empowering small-holder farmers, post-harvest loss management and rural transformation are highly relevant for Zimbabwe. <br />
<br />
Zimbabwe will be the first pilot country of the UN World Food Programme (WFP) China Centre of Excellence’s programme called “Demonstration in Africa by Africans”, which aims at extending China’s affordable and applicable agricultural technologies to aspirational lead smallholder farmers in Africa.<br />
<br />
The “Demonstration in Africa by Africans” programme will focus on (1) developing local agricultural value chains; (2) applying emerging information technology; (3) sharing modern management techniques for agricultural business and markets, and (4) setting up short-cycled, effective and efficient agriculture businesses for smallholders based on local resources. <br />
<br />
The “Demonstration in Africa by Africans” programme fosters the cross-country transfer of technological solutions and best practices for smallholder farmers through on-site trainings and experts deployment. <br />
<br />
In the specific case of Zimbabwe, smallholder farmers receive on-site training in China and Chinese experts will then be deployed to Zimbabwe to support the practical application of China’s solutions on the ground.<br />

When Category 5 tropical cyclone Winston struck Fiji in February 2016, almost 62 percent of the population was affected with losses estimated around 31 percent of national GDP. <br />
<br />
The geographic location and structure of the Fiji islands and other South Pacific countries makes emergency response more complicated than in other isolated countries. Traditional logistics-based humanitarian responses with in-kind support to affected people, are not always the most effective solutions. Linking national social protection systems with emergency humanitarian assistance and using different transfer modalities, including cash and voucher, can be an effective way to ensure relief to families in need. <br />
<br />
The Fiji Government’s response to tropical cyclone Winston helped to bridge the historical divide between externally-led emergency responses and nationally-led long-term development programmes. <br />
<br />
Fiji’s lessons learnt on emergency response serves as an inspiration for other countries in the region and will be shared with the wider Pacific community, through a Pacific Regional Social Protection and Emergency Response Workshop. WFP has expressed willingness to facilitate such an initiative, also in view of supporting Fiji and other governments in the Pacific community through South-South learning on emergency preparedness and response. <br />
