      Climatic changes and chronic food insecurity, have pushed some vulnerable fishing and farming families in coastal regions to the brink of hopelessness. This documentary reflects the work of Oxfam with two coastal village communities of Badin. Their "Holistic climate change advocacy and adaptation project" revolves around disaster risk reduction, natural resource management, agriculture and livelihoods. The major elements of the project are construction of an emergency shelter, bio gas plants, use of solar panels for electricity generation, and reclamation of land for agricultural purposes. The documentary shows the eagerness of the village people towards making sustainable change and improving their livelihoods by countering the effects of climate change. The final product was shown at the International Climate Change Conference in Pakistan held on the 21st and 22nd of October, 2010 to promote further funding and deeper coordination from other institutions.

                'CONTENT FOR CHANGE' by Elizabeth McGuane, Lead Content Strategist, LBi London How do you make change happen, both in your organisation and beyond it, when you have only small change to spend? No matter how limited your resources, setting out a strategy for your content gives you the best chance of meeting your audience with a clear message and an experience they‘ll remember – and leaves you with a sus- tainable plan for keeping their attention. Using a variety of examples from content strategies with varying objectives, we‘ll discuss the elements of the content lifecycle: from analysis to diagnosis, and from production to delivery, measurement and governance. We‘ll talk about how to get started and how to get your existing content processes under control.

                      Millions of people in the Horn of Africa nation Somalia rely on money sent from their relatives and friends abroad in order to survive. These remittances have been the lifeline for many in a country that is struggling to recover from its failed state status after two decades of civil war and conflict. But it is feared that a decision by Barclays Bank to close the accounts of some of the biggest Somali money transfer firms, will have a devastating effect on the country and its people.Mohammed Mahamud started small when he moved back from South Africa and setup his clothing and cosmetics shop in the capital Mogadishu. Over a few months he has been able to expand and increase his business thanks to his family members who use money transfer firms to send money every month to invest in his business.“Dahabshiil helps us in many ways, for me to buy goods and commodities from Dubai I have to put my money in a bank account, Dahabshiil allows us to have a bank account. Dahabshiil helps us a lot.” Says Mohamed.Across the capital new businesses, hotels and restaurants havesprouted in almost every corner of the city; financially, as a result of monies being sent back to Somalia from the Diaspora, but in large part, following the relative peace that now prevails in Mogadishu after the al Shabaab extremist group were forced out of the city and other urban towns by the Somali National Army (SNA) backed by forces of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM). The country now has an elected president and an internationally recognised government that is working to rebuild systems and provide services that were non-existent for over two decades since the collapse of the Siad Barre regime in 1991. It was during this long period of chaos, with no formal institutions to send and receive money, that Somalia's money transfer firms emerged as a lifeline for many in the country. According to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) an estimated $1.6 billion US dollars is sent back annually by Somalis living in Europe and North America. NGOs also working in the country have had to rely on the same transfer companies to send money to run their programs on the ground in Somalia. The bank says it's decisions to close the accounts of the approx. 250 money transfer businesses worldwide, including that of the Somalia's biggest transfer company Dahabshiil, is over concerns of money laundering and the potential heavy fines Barclays could face. Dahabshiil has sought an injunction to stop Barclays bank from shutting it down and a verdict from the high court is expected within days. Some money transfer companies in Somalia have been accused of being used by pirates to launder money received form ransoms as well as used by Al Qaeda-affiliated extremist group al Shabaab to fund their terrorist activities and operations in Somalia and the wider East African region. “I feel bad Dahabshiil Shouldn’t be closed down, because a lot of people’s livelihood depend on it, they don’t have anything and they are dying of hunger, and what people send is very little money and it’s not worth much in Mogadishu.” Says Ahmed Shariff, Somali president. “When relatives send little money like $20, $25 and $50 they use it for coffee, if they were to stop that little money for coffee then Somali’s will suffer.” Qarad Bahi Noor another resident adds, “Its in within the interest of the Somali community is that Dahabshiil should not to be closed, Why? Because for example they send a mother who might a have a child who’s blind, deaf or disabled money through Dahabshiil, which is picked up for her and taken to her house which otherwise she wouldn’t have received it any other way. Naema Mahamud has just returned from Canada where she had been staying for over 20 years. She regularly sends money home to support her family and relative in the country. “They can not stop sending money. People in Europe, North America and Australia, everybody is supporting their family, minimum they are sending is100 dollars, 500 dollars, some people say they are supporting Al shabaab or Al-Qaeda but not everybody is doing that, we are supporting our families and we send money every month.” SaysNaema. Emerging from the war and chaos of the last 20 years, Somalia stands to be the most affected if Barclays' decision comes into effect. Its fledgling government still has a long way to go in providing basic services for its people and re-building structures and institutions destroyed by the years of fighting. In a recent statement, Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud said that this is not the time to punish Somalis again by closing the legitimate lifeline on which millions of Somalis depend. He said innocent millions should not be made to suffer because of the crimes of the guilty few.
