Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science Simon Harris TD has today secured Government approval to submit Ireland's formal application to join the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) as an Associate Member. CERN is one of the world's largest and most respected centres for scientific research. Ireland to join CERN Speaking at Government Buildings today, Minister Harris said: "This is a development that has been, for decades, eagerly awaited by our academic community and I would like to thank them for their assistance in bringing us to this milestone in Irish science and in preparing Ireland's formal application. "I am so pleased we have reached this milestone moment. CERN will consider the application in mid-December. I really want to thank my Department officials for all of their work. We are on the cusp of something significant." Membership of CERN can be expected to bring benefits to Ireland across research, industry, skills, science outreach, and international relations. It will open doors for Ireland's researchers to participate in CERN's scientific programmes and will make Irish citizens eligible for staff positions and fellowships at CERN. With CERN membership, Irish citizens will gain access to CERN's formal training schemes. These include masters and PhD programmes, apprenticeships, a graduate engineering training scheme, internships for computer scientists and engineers, and technical training experience. These skills will be developed far beyond what is possible in Ireland and are in industry-relevant areas such as electronics, photonics, materials, energy systems and software. Membership will also allow Ireland's enterprises to compete in CERN procurement programmes. Much of CERN's instrumentation and equipment requires the development or exploitation of novel technologies, which spurs enterprise innovation. Many of these technologies have applications in other spheres such as medicine, space, energy and ICT. Minister Harris added: "My Department will continue to work closely with CERN, in order to expedite the application process and we hope that Ireland's membership can commence in late 2024. We will continue to work with the academic community to make the necessary preparations for the Irish researchers to participate effectively at CERN from day one of Irish membership." It is hoped that CERN Council may be in a position to agree this December to send a fact-finding Task Force to Ireland in March 2024 to carry out their formal assessment. The Department will then formally establish the National Advisory Committee on CERN to prepare for membership and to coordinate with CERN's fact-finding Task Force. The Task Force will submit a report on Ireland's suitability for Associate Membership to the Director-General and the President of the CERN Council. In June 2024, the CERN Council may take a final vote on whether to admit Ireland as an Associate Member. Notes to editors CERN is an intergovernmental organisation that operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world. CERN is the leading global collaboration investigating the fundamental composition of matter. It was established in 1954 and straddles the Franco-Swiss border, just outside Geneva. CERN currently has 23 Member States (including most of the EU Member States) and has co-operation agreements with over 40 other states. The main focus of activity in CERN is the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This is an underground ring which is 27km in circumference in which protons, one of the constituent particles of an atom, are accelerated to 99.9999991% of the speed of light and collided into one another. The Large Hadron Collider was used to discover the Higgs boson in 2012. CERN also plays a leading role in promoting and organising international cooperation in scientific research The CERN Convention specifically stipulates that CERN "shall have no concern with work for military requirements and the results of...

Sir Ashley Bloomfield was the Director-General of Health in New Zealand from 2018-2022 and became one of the country's most recognisable faces during the Covid-19 pandemic. In this episode, we talk about the anxiety of facing the media and nation every day at 1 pm and the effect it had on his personal life, the power of ‘I don't know', his weekly interviews with Mike Hosking and Kim Hill, dealing with fame, lessons in leadership and much, much more. Ashley is brilliant company and an exceptionally articulate communicator – with so many valuable lessons to share. This was a really cool opportunity to probe away at the *other side* of such a high-profile public figure – and he didn't disappoint.

Sex trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery where individuals perform commercial sex through the use of force, fraud or coercion - often by those they know. The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists say the UAE is a major destination for sex trafficking. African women are forced into prostitution by illicit networks operating in the country. BBC Africa Daily's Alan Kasujja speaks to Mary*, a survivor of human trafficking who courageously shared her story of how her life changed when she went from Nigeria to Dubai. He also speaks to the Director General of the Nigerian National Agency for the Prevention of Trafficking in Persons - Fatima Waziri-Azi, for more insight on the scale of this problem in Nigeria.

BOOK LAUNCH The Political Economy of Food System Transformation: Pathways to Progress in a Polarized World Hybrid Event NOV 14, 2023 - 3:00 TO 4:30PM EST Amid rising geopolitical conflict, populism and nationalism, and clashes between empirical evidence and disinformation campaigns, many countries are trying to transform their food systems to achieve healthier, more sustainable outcomes. To accomplish this challenging goal, pathways to transform food systems must be grounded in a sound understanding of interest group dynamics, incentive systems, the role of ideology and coalitions, and accountability structures. The Political Economy of Food System Transformation, a new IFPRI and Oxford University publication edited by Danielle Resnick and Johan Swinnen, tackles this complex subject by integrating insights from a global set of interdisciplinary scholars. Their work encompasses food system policy issues relevant to diets and environmental sustainability at the local, national, and international levels. The authors address a wide range of issues, including the need to repurpose costly agricultural subsidies, reduce red meat and ultra-processed food consumption, increase uptake of appropriate biotechnologies, adopt sugar-sweetened beverage taxes, implement the European Union's Farm to Fork Strategy, adapt urban food system councils to local contexts, and track accountability for global food system commitments. Join us for this hybrid book launch at IFPRI headquarters and online—speakers will discuss the political economy of these issues and reflect on opportunities to pursue food system policy reforms in an increasingly polarized world. A light reception will follow the presentations. Speakers Christopher Barrett, Stephen B. and Janice G.

CGIAR SEMINAR SERIES Can Sustainable Livestock Systems and Alternative Proteins Address the Climate Crisis? Co-organized by IFPRI, CGIAR, and Germany's Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) NOV 7, 2023 - 9:30 TO 11:00AM EST Climate change is severely impacting our food systems, making it increasingly challenging to provide food security and healthy diets for all people. At the same time, food systems contribute 25–30% of all greenhouse gas emissions. The livestock sector alone contributes about half of these GHGs, and has a large land and water footprint. The livestock sector is also the fastest growing agricultural sector in Africa and other parts of the Global South, where access to healthy, affordable milk, meat, and egg remains low. Clearly food system adaptation, including in the livestock sector, must deliver both mitigation and healthy diets. The CGIAR's 2023 Achieving Agriculture Breakthrough report identifies seven key technological areas and approaches for driving real change in the agriculture sector. Three of these are related to livestock: reducing methane emissions from livestock, livestock breeding for climate resilience, and alternative proteins to replace traditional animal-source proteins. The third seminar of the CGIAR Policy Seminar Series on Strengthening Food Systems will delve into findings and recommendations around sustainable livestock technologies, healthy diets, methane emissions, and alternative proteins, including promising initiatives and technologies that can be pursued to address climate change and healthy diets. Welcome Remarks Jan Brix, Senior Policy Officer, Division of Agriculture and Rural Development, German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) Appolinaire Djikeng, Director General and CGIAR Senior Director of Livestock-Based Systems (ILRI) Overview of the Breakthrough Report Loraine Ronchi, CGIAR Senior Advisor for Policy Impact, IFPRI Priority Sustainable Livestock Technologies Fiona Flintan, Senior Scientist, International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) and Lead of the CGIAR Research Initiative on Livestock and Climate The Role of Alternative Proteins Claudia Ringler, Director, Natural Resources and Resilience (NRR), IFPRI Animal-Source Foods and Sustainable Healthy Diets Jef Leroy, Senior Research Fellow, IFPRI Discussants Dennis Rijnders, Commercial Director, EMEA-Bovaer Mary Mbole Kariuki, African Union – Interafrican Bureau for Animal Resources (AU-IBAR) Fabrice DeClerck, Science Director, EAT Stephanie von Stein, Director of International Engagement, The Good Food Institute Moderator Michael Victor, Head, Communications and Knowledge Management, International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) More about this seminar: https://www.ifpri.org/event/can-sustainable-livestock-systems-and-alternative-proteins-address-climate-crisis Subscribe IFPRI Insights newsletter and event announcements at www.ifpri.org/content/newsletter-subscription

Last week, the United States House of Representatives passed a plan to provide $14.3 billion in aid to Israel. So, clearly, the conflict in the Middle East will continue to be a big headline in financial news. A few weeks ago, Nicole interviewed Dan Senor, a foreign policy expert, who said that Israel is a country uniquely primed for resilience. But as the war wages on in Israel, resilience feels like it's far away— or even impossible. To explain how peace could be possible in the region, Nicole talks to Israel's Ambassador to Germany, Ron Prosor. Nicole and Ambassador Prosor talk about the future of the region, demystify some misconceptions about life in Israel and the question of a cease-fire. Ambassador Ron Prosor became Israel's 16th Permanent Representative to the United Nations in June 2011. With over two decades of experience at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Prosor has earned an international reputation as one of Israel's most distinguished diplomats. He served for nearly four years as Israel's Ambassador to the United Kingdom and served as the Director General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs ('04-'07), overseeing the work of the Foreign Ministry during the disengagement from Gaza in 2005.

Burkina Faso's military leaders have signed a deal with Russia to build a nuclear power plant, with the hope of increasing its electricity supplies. Burkina Faso is one of the least electrified countries globally, with only 21% of people connected to power. Our West Africa Correspondent Mayeni Jones talks us through the advantages and disadvantages of a nuclear power plant in the Sahel. Also there's a rise in child labour across the globe, that's the warning from the International Labour Organization. More than half of all child labourers are found across Africa. We hear from the Director-General of the ILO, Gilbert F. Houngbo. And what to do with an old pair of sneakers? How one young South African, Sibusiso Zulu, is already helping to change the world after asking that very question.
Gaza's hospitals are under immense stress as patients and doctors grapple with the unprecedented Israeli order for 1.1 million people to leave Northern Gaza, all during massive bombardment.
