Across Atlantic Development (AAD) was established to makes land safe, freeing people from danger and fear from landmines as to come back and have access to their land for agricultural purposes. More than this, AAD’s core goal is working in some of the world’s poorest communities makes it possible for children to go to school in safety, gives better access to health services, and empowers people to make a better living without fear of landmine, but risk education. Crucially, it enables other organisations to safely deliver humanitarian aid and development projects. The land sharing after deeming of the landmines regions is important towards agricultural development. This is also in line with promoting and have a meaningful dialogue on agricultural sectors and its development, civil, private and government agencies to lobby for promotion of agriculture as there is need to shift policy and face the reality towards agricultural promotion within the framework of SDG and MDG.
Our mission and vision towards poverty eradication are in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal with ending hunger as its fundamental goal, realize and upheld food security while making sure that the food we eat is healthy with call for RESEARCH for ecological food, and encourage fair trade, which is the main source towards eradicating poverty among these local farmers that do not have access to international and global market. There is need for fair share of the market so that produce from these local farmers can be found in the shelve of shops in developed world while promoting sustainable agriculture for all.
Twenty years ago, Diana, Princess of Wales, walked in Angola’s minefields, capturing the conscience of states and the public and helping to inspire the final successful push to achieve the groundbreaking 1997 Ottawa Treaty banning landmines. Two decades later, Prince Harry is calling for all states to unite to fulfil his mother’s legacy and achieve a landmine free 2025.
Landmine Free 2025 is a campaign to complete landmine clearance by 2025. The campaign is a call to action to donor and mine-affected states, civil society and the public to re-energise support to landmine clearance. It aims to build and strengthen national and global partnerships to realise the goal of a world free of landmines.
This Project was implemented in Darfur West Sudan, and designed with an effort to make a basic understanding on how climate change has impacts in livelihood and to the sustainable development. An attempt has been made to portray importance of energy linkages with climate change adaptation process.
It has also attempted to advocate that energy acts as a cross cutting tools to address the vulnerabilities on livelihood, health and environment. Furthermore, development and promotion of Energy efficiency and renewable energy can be found more crucial, when we analyse how and in what way it can contribute in upgrading physical quality of rural population and for sustainable development.
Location Area in Sudan was used for project to support agriculture and irrigation for them to have access to water for their agricultural use as this solar energy will support by providing the means towards irrigation for the rural poor. We also introduce the water project as this is the most crucial need in the region, we are still hoping to expand the project towards water management, provide and build rainwater harvesting tank, well, and water reservoir, installation of small scale type water supply system. Construction/repair of sanitation facility, maintenance/improvement of water resource environment, Installation/promotion of water efficiency irrigation system and other risk reduction program towards water supply as it avoids risk like over flood and other related risk.
The environmental benefits of the foreseen energy efficiency measures to be introduced into this school are numerous and include:
- Reduction in air pollution
- Reduction of GHG emissions equal to 32000 kg per each school
- Use of environmentally friendly materials as replacements for the existing ones (such as not burning smoke to cook or light but solar panels can be used). Encourage the pupils to read more and to protect the school property from being robbed and vandalised at night when it is dark.
The project was implemented by our partner local organisation in Sudan: Alresala Organisation in Darfur Sudan-for women development in the rural area
