In #Ecuador 🇪🇨, generations-old #cocoa farming businesses are on the verge of collapse because they don't receive fair pay for their work.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cacao farming is hard work: everyday farmers climb up to 1.5 hours in hot and humid or dusty conditions to their farms. Unsurprisingly, fewer and fewer young people want to continue the family business.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We partnered with AltFinLab and FairChain Foundation to develop shared-value #chocolate 🍫. We source ingredients from farmers who practice zero #deforestation and work to preserve the #Amazon. By implementing #blockchain for transparency in the supply chain, the information about the ingredients, their impact on the #ecosystem, and real costs of production and export will be available to everyone. The farmers will also receive a greater share of the profit.

#10YearChallenge Feel the difference – the restored Halaje peatland in #Minsk region, Belarus 🇧🇾.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Halaje is the first Belarusian #peatland that was rehabilitated by UNDP with the GEF support. The restoration of the #ecosystem allowed to stop fires and #CO2 emissions, and to improve #biodiversity conservation. Today the peatland is the centre of #elk reproduction. The heather has been replaced by #peatmoss and #cranberry, which is important for the locals.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Belarus is one of the world leaders in ecological restoration of peatlands. 51,000 hectares of inefficiently drained peatlands have already been restored within the International Technical Assistance projects in #Belarus. The ongoing UNDP-GEF “Wetlands” project will contribute to this large-scale work.

12.3 million people aged between 15 and 64 years work as #fishermen and #seafood processors in Africa 🌍. The fishing 🐟🐠🐟🐠 industry not only provides income for millions of people, it also offers an affordable source of nutritious food to lower-income families across the continent. Boosting private investment in Africa, including its #blueeconomy, will create more jobs and support #sustainable economic growth.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For the past three days, world leaders, the private sector, and #NGOs met at the third International Conference on Emergence in Africa🌍 to discuss what role the private sector and governments can play in driving social-economic growth. Leading our delegation, UNDP Administrator said: “For Africa, it is vitally important that  the development process be inclusive. If you ignore notions of inequality, fairness and inclusiveness, sooner or later your development process implodes, whether through #extremism and #terrorism or through polarization and #nationalism.”

Snow leopards specialize in one of the harshest and most remote habitats on Earth. Well-adapted to the #cold, dry conditions, snow leopards roam the high #mountains of Central and South #Asia up to elevations of 5,000m or more. Steep slopes, rocky crags and rugged terrain provide ideal hunting grounds for the stealthy #cats.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of the reasons why we need snow leopards is because they act as an indicator of the health of the entire #ecosystem in which they live, due to their position as the top (apex) #predator in the food web. A diverse and abundant community of species—from insects and birds to mammals, reptiles and plants—must be sustained within the habitat for an apex predator to thrive.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There are no more than 6,000 snow leopards left in the wild across 12 countries. The Global #SnowLeopard and Ecosystem Protection Program, which we help to implement, helps save these great cats from extinction.

photo_library In 2017, floods killed people and swept bridges and thousands of houses in #Peru’s 🇵🇪 north. They were triggered by #elniño - a climate pattern that describes sudden warming of the eastern Pacific Ocean.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The city of #Catacaos, known for its craftsmanship, still carries the mark of the disaster. But the community has found the strength to rebuild their lives. “The rain took everything: the straw, the moulds, our crafts, but not the art we carry in our hands,” said #artisan grand master Iris Chero Mendoza. In the valley where she is from, everyone weaves straw hats 👒. Through the initiative financed by the European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO), artisans were able to restore the production and find buyers for new #hats. “We are motivated because it's not a donation, it's a job,” said Juana Solano, president of an association of 62 #craftspeople who help recover local economy while preserving #ancestral techniques.

These strong women, dressed as historical #Kyrgyz women, are victims of bride kidnapping and domestic violence.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In #Kyrgyzstan 🇰🇬, bride kidnapping continues to exist despite the toughened laws. While this crime can be reported to police 👮🏽‍♀️, many women marry their unwanted suitors because of the family pressure and fear of public shaming.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When 20-year-old Burulai Turdaaly Kyzy was killed by her kidnapper last year, public outcry led to strengthening the movement against this appalling practice. Fashion designer Zamira Moldosheva joined the protest and decided to give #women a platform to share their ordeal but also show that there is a way out. She organized a fashion show where all #models were victims of #kidnapping and #domesticviolence. "I'm fighting for women's rights," said one of the models who was lucky to escape unwed because her mother threatened to call the police.

Five-year-old Andreea Gasca is one of 80,000 children in #Moldova 🇲🇩who have at least one parent working abroad. But a new #ecotourism movement is reuniting families. @UNDPMoldova is supporting the government of Moldova to create jobs at home for those who want to return by investing in education, entrepreneurs and start-ups.

Across the globe, from Indonesia to Nigeria, thousands of women and children with links to violent extremist groups face deep challenges when returning to their home countries. Women who were held captive and abused are stigmatized upon returning home. In Kurdish-held Syria alone, 2,000 foreign women and children suspected of ties to ISIS are being held.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Many governments don't have the capacity to reintegrate and rehabilitate women and children who need psychological support from the trauma they lived through and the current stigma they face. With limited resources, community women’s 👩🏽👩🏿👩organizations are filling in the needs, by providing psychosocial and economic support, job training, deradicalization, and more.

Their situations are extremely complex and varied. Tap the link in the bio to learn more about the difficulties women face returning home and our report on “Invisible Women.”

The #AralSea was once the fourth largest lake in the world. Once a sea of over 1,100 islands, much of it is a sea of sand now. Bordering Kazakhstan in the ⬆️ and Uzbekistan in the ⬇️, decades of Soviet-era water misuse has created an ecological catastrophe. But there's a glimmer of hope. By restoring the sand into healthy 🌱soil and by growing a #greenbelt of 🌳🌳🌳every year, communities hope to protect what is left of the Aral Sea, perhaps even restore some of it.  The village of Akbay is greening🌱 about 2,500 hectares a year and other villages are following their example. Across villages in #Kazakhstan and #Uzbekistan, @UNDPEurasia is supporting villagers to grow 🌱 in nurseries and plant green belts to restore #soil, create alternative livelihoods and address drought and protect remaining💧.
