Subject: [ascmujeres] DECLARACION DEL G 90
Date: 04 de julio del 2007.
 
Estimados amigos y amigas:
 
Aquí la nota sobre el G 90 en español:  La alianza  G90 Plus de países en desarrollo adoptó el 21 de Junio pasado una relevante Declaración denominada Preocupaciones sobre el Desarrollo y los temas en las negociaciones de la OMC. AL G90 plus incluye los países del África, Caribe y el Pacífico, el grupo Africano  son 41 países, los PMA (Países menos adelantados) son 31, entonces el G-90 (64 Miembros de la OMC que son miembros de la Unión Africana/Grupo Africano, países ACP y países menos adelantados)  + Bolivia y Venezuela. Todos ellos representan a la mayoría de los países en desarrollo de la OMC.
 
Como dijo nuestro amigo Martin Khor, la Declaración es muy importante y critica severamente la falta de transparencia del proceso llevado a cabo por el G4 y llama a un proceso multilateral en el cual todos los países puedan participar plenamente.  El contenido no puede ser sacrificado por cuestiones de tiempo o por limitaciones en el tiempo.  Es mas importante llegar a acuerdos correctos que cumplir con los plazos dice el documento.
 
Una importante parte de la declaración está referida a servicios y contiene algunos principios de nuestra lucha común y global de SACAR EL AGUA DE LA OMC propuesta ahora oficialmente por el gobierno boliviano y el apoyo de otros países.
 
Les mando una nota de prensa al respecto y en  attachment la declaración en ingles.  Abajo una lista de los países que firmaron.
Un abrazo,

Preocupaciones sobre desarrollo y temas en las negociaciones vigentes de la OMC.
 
Declaración adoptada por el G90 Plus* en Ginebra el 21 de junio de 2007




Para los países en desarrollo lo que importa en esta ronda de negociaciones de la Organización Mundial del Comercio (OMC) son los contenidos, los cuales deben traducirse en resultados positivos para el balance del comercio, mejoramiento en producción y capacidad de abastecimiento y aumento de empleo e ingresos para la gente. Este contenido no puede ser sacrificado por plazos. Para los países del G90 es más importante alcanzar los acuerdos correctos que cumplir plazos.
 
Los países del G90 están de acuerdo con la declaración del G-20 que el 11 de junio declaró lo siguiente: El apoyo de los países en desarrollo a la conclusión urgente de las negociaciones depende de que en la balanza total de cada compromiso en las negociaciones se consideren los intereses y necesidades de los países en desarrollo, especialmente de los menos desarrollados.
 
El G90 dice estar preocupado porque algunos de los temas críticos han sido marginados mientras las negociaciones continúan, por ejemplo los de temas de tratamiento especial y diferenciado y los temas de implementación que debían ser resueltos antes de  las negociaciones de agricultura y NAMA (bienes industriales).
 
El enfoque se ha puesto en los temas principales de acceso a mercados, NAMA y agricultura, mientras que los temas de preferencias, aumento de tarifas, subvenciones y subsidios en la caja verde han recibido menos atención.
 
Estamos muy preocupados porque el proceso de negociación reciente ha sido menos que transparente y participativo, reclama el G90. Aunque es ampliamente conocido que las negociaciones importantes ocurren dentro de las charlas del G4, la gran mayoría de los miembros tienen poco o ningún conocimiento del progreso y contenido de las diferentes etapas de la negociación, aunque dos países en desarrollo son parte del G4 no podemos esperar que ellos representen las perspectivas y posiciones de todos los países en desarrollo, dice el G90.
 
Servicios
Nosotros reafirmamos que cada país en desarrollo tienen el derecho de elegir los compromisos que desean hacer en el Acuerdo General de Comercio de Servicios (AGCS). Los países en desarrollo no deben ser sometidos a presión para hacer ofertas.
 
Disciplinas en la regulación doméstica bajo el AGCS no deben restringir la capacidad de los países en desarrollo de regular servicios para que cumplan con las necesidades de desarrollo y de asegurar acceso de los servicios esenciales para sus ciudadanos.
 
Los países del G90 apoyan plenamente propuestas por introducir provisiones dentro del AGCS que excluyan la aplicabilidad de reglas y compromisos del AGCS con relación a los servicios de agua y otros servicios esenciales. Los países en desarrollo requieren provisiones que también garanticen acceso universal a los servicios, indica el G90.
 
 
EL G 90 PLUS

* El grupo 90 incluye el grupo ACP, el grupo África, el grupo de los países menos desarrollados, Bolivia y Venezuela.

Dear Member,

1. NEW! HIGHLIGHT: Speaking Out - Stopping Female Genital Mutilation and Cutting
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Every time an individual, members of the community, civil society organizations, religious leaders, and governments make a move to stop Female Genital Mutilation and Cutting (FGM/C) - it signals a victory for human rights - especially for the rights of the girl child - and a step forward in ending a practice which harms millions of young girls every year.

The latest is Egypt: the country's decision to ban FGM/C is a victory for the worldwide movement against the practice. The Egyptian Government has just announced that it is imposing a complete ban on GGM/C. The announcement follows a public outcry after a young girl recently died during the operation. A ban was introduced nearly 10 years ago but the practice continued to be allowed in exceptional circumstances. A health ministry spokesman said no member of the medical profession would be allowed to perform the operation in public or private establishments. Those who broke the law would be punished.

The new ban in Egypt cancels out a provision that allowed the operation to be performed by qualified doctors in exceptional cases only. But the death of a 12-year-old girl in Upper Egypt a few days ago triggered an angry barrage of appeals from human rights groups to both the government and the medical profession to act swiftly and stamp out the practice. The doctor who carried out the operation has been arrested. Egypt's first lady, Susanne Mubarak, has spoken out strongly against female circumcision, saying that it is a flagrant example of continued physical and psychological violence against children which must stop. The country's top religious authorities also expressed unequivocal support for the ban.

The movement against FGM/C is growing. In Mali, Djigarey Maiga is a Muslim leader who has signed the Pledge Against Excision, initiated by Stop Excision/Healthy Tomorrow (Sini Sanuman). Maiga is not alone. He has been helped by Hamidou Coulibaly a devoted volunteer who has helped approach many Muslim leaders, organized neighbors into a Stop Excision club and committee.

UNICEF Niger's work has had a positive impact. FGM/C has been abandoned in Komba, the surrounding villages and in four other districts. Once a taboo subject, the dangers of FGM/C are now openly acknowledged by the government and discussed in village classrooms. Community awareness campaigns seek to reach key figures across society in the fight against FGM/C: village chiefs, media, traditional and religious leaders, young people, teachers, nurses, midwives and female excisers. In 2003, the government of Niger passed a law calling for fines or jail sentences for those conducting FGM/C.UNICEF is working closely with its partners around the world in the campaign for the abandonment of FGM/C everywhere within a generation.

3. DISCUSSION: Is Gender Being Factored into Climate Change Policy Decisions?
---------------------------------------------------------------------

According to many experts, gender is not being given its due importance at international Climate Change Conferences and Forums. Because of the feminization of poverty, and other issues of gender inequality - gender will always be impacted adversely by Climate Change, hence special provisions must be made to include gender in policy decisions.

“Cuando hacemos una intervención [con un proyecto de desarrollo] queremos un cambio. Y esto depende de las mujeres. Las mujeres son agentes sociales importantes y agregan valor a todos los proyectos”, afirmó Ruth Cardoso en el BID.

Ruth Cardoso, presidenta de “Comunidade Solidaria” –un programa contra la pobreza y la exclusión social en Brasil, analizó en la sede del BID la situación de progreso en la incorporación de políticas de género en América Latina y el Caribe. Cardoso subrayó que no hay duda sobre el reconocimiento casi universal y la importancia de los temas de género y que estos van más allá de hacer política simplemente para beneficiar a las mujeres. 

Pero tratar el tema de género significa trabajar por un cambio cultural en la región, indicó. Esto no es sencillo, ni tampoco inmediato. Para incorporar a las mujeres en la fuerza laboral hay que evaluar las barreras, dados los papeles tradicionales en la sociedad y las necesidades de organizar la vida privada con el trabajo, garantizar sueldos, el cuidado de los niños, etc.

Por ello, la ex primera dama indicó que hay que mirar al mercado de trabajo con una visión de cambio social  para incorporar a las mujeres. Pero se da la necesidad de cambios culturales que tienen que ser la base para que los gobiernos empiecen políticas de corte transversal que atiendan la inserción de las mujeres, y aquí está el verdadero el desafío, añadió. “Esto reivindica la igualdad de la mujer en la ciudadanía sobre una desigualdad basada en los padrones culturales de nuestra sociedad”, dijo. “No es una cuestión de pelear por capricho ni tampoco se trata de promover políticas para beneficiar a las mujeres, sino políticas para desarrollar sociedades”.

Indicó que “la lucha de las mujeres por la igualdad de género ya está enraizada en nuestra sociedad”. No se trata de una idea impuesta por las potencias mundiales, sino que desde los países latinoamericanos llegan propuestas inmediatas y de largo plazo a organismos multilaterales e internacionales para tratar el tema y colaborar en el desarrollo económico y social de la región.

"Las mujeres latinoamericanas saben que el trabajo es la condición para su independencia, su economía y su participación en la comunidad”, subrayó Cardoso durante un seminario sobre igualdad de género para el desarrollo humano y crecimiento económico, el cual se llevó a cabo en el Banco el pasado 4 de junio.

1. NEW! HIGHLIGHT: Success Stories of Women Entrepreneurs in Jordan ( Courtesy MicroFund for Women)
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Um Nidal - When asked what makes her business so successful, Um Nidal proudly says "any woman who has the will and the ambition to start a project, over time, can be successful."

Um Nidal's strength and accomplishments represent the Jordanian woman that MicroFund for Women (MFW) takes pride in and finds inspiration to further pursue its mission towards empowering women in this country. Having studies till only Grade 5, and marrying at a very early age, Um Nidal had to face many hardships. Faced with financial problems, Um Nidal decided to start her own embroidery business and contribute to the household income. Starting with one or two dresses, Um Nidal's embroidery business would eventually grow to employ a number of assistants and produce up to 50 dresses per month.

Blessed with an entrepreneurial mind and an energetic spirit, Um Nidal has expanded her income generating projects to trading olive oil from Ajloun to the rest of the Kingdom. "Penny over penny, I was able to start my embroidery business and expand to the olive oil business, both of which significantly helped me build a better life for myself and my family." Um Nidal is now working towards ensuring a better future for her children; supporting their education at the university level, whilst expanding her home to accommodate for her children's families in the future. "It may be true that I have not received an official education, but I have learnt many lessons from life and from my interactions with people, and it is precisely these lessons that have made me successful and it is these experiences that I have used for my business."

Hana' Khattab - After the death of her husband, Hana' faced the harsh reality of having to raise nine children and pay off a large debt. With no other option, she sold her jewelry sell, repaid the debt and bought a cart to sell fruits & vegetables in her neighborhood. Her two older sons stood beside her and shared the responsibilities - and slowly, her income started to grow. After some time, she was able to buy another cart and expand her business. In 1997, Hana' heard of MFW and the financial services it provides to micro entrepreneurs, so she applied for a small loan of 100 JDs, in order to develop her enterprise into a grocery store.

It has been nine years that Hana' has taken loans from MFW to keep her business going and today, she owns two big vehicles for transporting fruit and vegetables transportation, in addition to her store, and a beautiful home.
Hana' has big dreams; she wants to buy the store next-door and expand the business to home delivery of frozen meat products.

Micro Fund for Women is a partner of Women's World Banking (WWB). This article and photograph of Um NIdal courtesy WWB, a Cooperating Organization with dgCommunity Gender and Development.

5. ARCHIVED HIGHLIGHT: Women will Suffer More From Global Warming
---------------------------------------------------------------------

The food security scenario in South Asia has witnessed rapid progress over the last few decades, yet nutrition outcomes, especially those related to women and children, have failed to keep pace. This paper contends that the role of women in providing food and nutrition security at the household and individual level needs to be examined, if the paradox of persisting malnutrition amid macro level food sufficiency is to be resolved. Food security, in its broader connotation, results from the availability of adequate food, effective consumption, and desirable nutrition outcomes. As such, it is intricately linked with a woman's multiple roles expressed in her productive, reproductive, and caring functions. However, even focussed efforts aimed at resolving the problems faced by women in performing one or other of their roles, may fail to produce expected results, if the issues underlying each function and their inter-linkages are not fully understood. The paper thus attempts to review various aspects of the relationship between women and food security in South Asia, highlight the issues that require urgent focus and indicate emerging concerns in the region.
