Facilitating revision process of Amerindian Act 2006

first_imgDear Editor,Contrary to the position taken by the Legal Advisor to the Ministry of Indigenous Peoples Affairs (MoIPA), David James, at the National Toshaos Conference (NTC) — that MoIPA is unaware of any other consultation happening on revision of the Amerindian Act 2006, the Amerindian Peoples Association (APA) would like to clarify that it has in fact been supporting training sessions on the revision of the Act at the district council level, through the Steering Committee for the Revision of the Amerindian Act 2006 (SCRAA).On Thursday, the Legal Department of the MoIPA provided an update on the revision process for the Amerindian Act 2006, which the Government has committed to amending since taking office in 2015.During his presentation, James explained that the Government is currently undertaking cluster consultations in select villages, to gather recommendations on strengthening the 2006 Act.Following his presentation, the attorney-at-law was asked by a toshao to clarify whether separate consultations were being conducted by other indigenous organisations to the knowledge of MoIPA. James responded that he was not aware of any other organisation conducting consultations on the Act.“I am not aware that there are separate consultations from the Government,” said the attorney, while explaining that civil societies and organisations can work with village constituencies to formulate recommendations for the Act.However, the APA would like to recall that, in April, the MoIPA met with the SCRAA, a body comprising of the National Toshaos Council, indigenous organisations, and district councils, to discuss synergies for the implementation of the revision process. Despite commending the Committee for its revision process strategy, which included hosting Amerindian Act training sessions at the District Council meetings to familiarise villages on the Act, the MoIPA decided that it would pursue a revision process separate from the SCRAA.Therefore, James’s claim that he is unaware of any other organisation conducting consultations on the revision of the Amerindian Act, without acknowledging the efforts of indigenous representative bodies aiming to facilitate the process, raises serious questions from the standpoint of the APA.The committee — dedicated to ensuring that villages understand the Amerindian Act 2006 within a legal and human rights framework before submitting their recommendations to the Government — has made a concerted effort to collaborate with the MoIPA as consultations take place.For the month of July, the APA has already supported the revision process of the Amerindian Act 2006 with three training sessions completed in the villages of Santa Rosa, Moruca Sub-District, Region 1; Kako, Upper Mazaruni Sub-District, Region 7; and Kopinang, North Pakaraimas Sub-District, Region 8. These sessions included several other villages from the respective sub-districts. The aim of these sessions was to build communities’ capacity to read and analyse the 2006 legislation, so they could make their own recommendations to the MoIPA for amendments to the Act.So far, the APA, with assistance from SCRAA, has collaborated with the Moruca District Council (Region 1), Upper Mazaruni District Council (Region 7), and North Pakaraimas District Council (Region 8) to conduct these sessions with the help of facilitators from each region who are trained to understand the current Act as well as international and constitutional human rights’ guarantees.Once sessions are completed, villages will make their own recommendations on the revision of the Act, which are expected to be submitted in written form to the Ministry of Indigenous Peoples Affairs after a team of lawyers has framed the recommendations in legal language. The Committee’s plan is, through collaboration with their District Councils, to ensure that as many indigenous villages and communities as possible are prepared to make recommendations that are informed by actual knowledge of what the current Act says, and what their rights are under international law and the Constitution.Although the MoIPA has already started its consultations separate from the activities of the APA and SCRAA, the Committee is still open to collaborating with the Government to ensure the mutual and just advancement of our indigenous peoples.Sincerely,Amerindian PeoplesAssociationlast_img read more

WCD flood victims demand compensation

first_imgResidents on the West Coast of Demerara (WCD) who were affected by a flood caused by a high spring tide are calling on the relevant authorities as it related to the compensation that they were promised.When Guyana Times spoke to the aggravated residents on Monday, they noted that they have not received any word on the compensation that was owed to them.A livestock farmer, whose only name was given as Singh, explained that all of his livestock were killed or injured in the floodwaters. As such, his income vanished.“What happen is that we ain’t hear from these people and we need the money. Right now I don’t have anything. I lost all the chickens in the flood,” he stated.Meanwhile, others indicated that owing to infrastructural losses, they needed the monies to restore their lives. The early March flood also destroyed appliances and other valuable belongings.As such, members of the affected communities are requesting that they receive their compensation as soon as possible.When contacted, Chairman of the Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC) of Uitvlugt/Tuschen, Vishal Ambedkar, revealed that they have not received any official confirmation about the compensation and that “it will fall from an official at the RDC level”.However, when this publication spoke via phone with the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) Chairman of Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara), Julius Faerber, he said: “I don’t know anything about that. We have not heard anything. Those lists were sent directly to the Minister of State. I have not seen any of those lists so far.”Earlier this month, huge waves pummelled the sea defence, causing breakages along sections of the seawalls and major flooding in a number of communities along the coast. As such, losses totalling approximately $100 million were assessed by the Geographical Representative and Member of Parliament (MP), Mohammed Irfaan Ali and submitted to the Minister of State, Joseph Harmon. However, they were awaiting a final confirmation from Minister Harmon to verify whether the assessments were accurate. To date, no response has been given to the flood victims in respect to the status of their compensation.last_img read more

first_imgA UNIONIST minister in the North has revealed that engineers have said the proposed A5 dual carriageway link between the North West and Dublin will be safer and will affect fewer land-owners than alternative proposals.The North’s Regional Development Minister Danny Kennedy said however no decision would be taken until an ongoing consultation with landowners was complete.The dual carriageway will run from Derry to Aughnacloy and help to link Donegal to Dublin. The Government is committing €400M to the project.Engineers found that a new dual carriageway was the most cost-effective project compared to upgrading the existing route.The Assembly debate came after Sinn Fein tabled a motion backing the A5 scheme.Minister Kennedy is facing opposition from within his own party with MLA Ross Hussey objecting to the cost. The A5 Western Transport Corridor is the largest proposed single roads project in Ireland and is estimated to cost up to €900M.The Government and the North’s Executive agreed in July 2007 to bring forward projects to provide dual carriageway standard on the A5 (Aughnacloy to Derry) and the A8 (Belfast to Larne).UNIONIST MINISTER BACKS DONEGAL TO DUBLIN ROAD PROJECT was last modified: June 8th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:aughnacloydonegal A5dublinlast_img read more

Why Intrapreneurial Programs Are More Important Than Ever

first_imgRelated Posts Trends Driving the Loyalty Marketing Industry Tags:#Generation Z#intrapreneurship Steve Robertson is a Gen Z expert and the CEO of Julian Krinsky Camps & Programs, an organization specializing in youth-to-adult programs. In his role, he works to create lifelong memories. You’ve heard it before: Generation Z will be different. The generation admires YouTube celebrities who’ve acquired fame and fortune through monetizing their channels and entrepreneurs who’ve made a good living from one big idea. Gen Zers have grown up in a time when technology is a tool instead of a toy and when peers — not elders — are their mentors.But the Great Recession hit during their childhood, giving them a lived experience of loss and struggle that echoes the Silent Generation more than their recent generational predecessors. Consequently, though Millennials may prioritize personal endeavors over professional ones, Gen Z is likely to value the security of a steady income over the feeling of giving back to the world.For business leaders, this means hiring Gen Z will require an approach different from any taken before. Because the members of Gen Z aren’t worried about “freedom” so much as financial security, they won’t all want to be CEOs — even though they’re primed to be the most entrepreneurially minded generation yet. Instead, they’ll find value in contributing to the organization through intrapreneurship, or innovation that creates value within the company’s larger structure.Why not just have a ‘normal’ job?Gen Zers are familiar with making their own luck. They’ve monetized video content, they’ve used technology to find gig work, and they’ve probably already started some sort of side hustle. They value creativity and excel at leveraging creative components into something marketable. Members of this generation want stable employment and job security, but they also want to be their own bosses.A Gallup study of Gen Zers found that nearly 80 percent of students want to eventually be their own bosses, while a Millennial Branding report found that more than half of college students are eager to start their own businesses — a number that’s even higher among high school students.Entrepreneurship enables Gen Zers to forge a path for themselves, rather than being swept up in the current of the external world. It is a way for them to pioneer the future they want to see. So what does all this mean for business leaders and startups who want to be ready to onboard this large demographic? It means appealing to their unique abilities and interests early on by creating more intrapreneurial opportunities in your business.Generation Z’s creativity, dedication, innovation, and skills will be in high demand in the business world. What will attract these covetable employees to your business? Opportunities to practice their entrepreneurial desires in a safe and supported environment, plus room for growth and progression with reward within the organization they feel they’ve contributed to.Companies can offer Gen Z entrepreneurs a number of assets within the company that they can’t find on their own, including opportunities to work closely with and learn from experienced leaders. Entrepreneurship can be really lonely, but being part of a business that surrounds employees with supportive managers and intrapreneurial opportunities has value.How do you create an ‘intrapreneurial’ company?One big plus to intrapreneurship for Gen Zers is the ability to be an entrepreneur without the risks involved in failing. Any leader who pours money into startup risks it failing and the loss of that investment. For risk-averse Gen Zers, this is a dicey proposition, so offering them the opportunity to innovate from within a business without that risk of personal loss is immensely attractive to them.Tech companies, in particular, should make space for Gen Zers who’ve grown up enmeshed with the concept of gaming, gamification, and learning through games. Whether it’s through internships or other leadership avenues, empowering this generation puts companies in the best position to bring them on as future employees. Here’s how to make it happen:1. Embrace them. Older generations sometimes struggle with understanding and connecting with their younger counterparts. It’s important not to assume that your existing employees, managers, and leaders share the same mindset regarding the value of Gen Z workers.Getting everyone on board with you may take some serious work, but it’s truly essential for your business in years to come. Working with your current employees and getting them excited about what unique skills Gen Z offers can help them understand and become more accepting. Tech leaders should have some familiarity with Gen Zers, such as what tools they like (or don’t like) and how best to relate to them. Focusing on those factors builds a bridge for Gen Zers and shows them that your company is a place they want to flourish in.2. Choose your coaches carefully. Be deliberate in which managers and leaders you position to work with Gen Z employees. Coaching a Gen Z worker is impossible if you’re not willing to get down into the creative stream with them and go with their flow.You have to build a team of employees who are ready — and willing — to do that before you can successfully shift your company’s way of doing things to best utilize the Gen Z workforce. If you are unsure whether you’re ready, you might consider creating an internship that will allow your employees and Gen Z interns to learn how to work with each other in a more comfortable, low-risk environment.3. Don’t generalize. It’s important that you look at each person, entrepreneur, each member of Gen Z, as an individual. Though they may share some characteristics, each member of any generation is unique.When you are working with a Gen Z employee, learn his or her strengths and weaknesses. Then, do what any good coach would: Develop ways to amplify those strengths and work on those weaknesses while enabling them to see that they determine their own paths.4. Hand them the reins. As we know, Gen Z workers want jobs that are challenging, meaningful, and engaging. If you can offer them that, there’s a high chance you’ll receive long-term commitment from them. They also want to be better employees and are often aware of what areas they need to improve.Almost half of new graduates express the desire to develop better problem-solving skills and grow as managers. If they’re offered an experienced coach or team to give them feedback and help them grow in those areas, your outcome is likely to be excellent. Put them in charge of a project, and hold them accountable to deadlines, benchmarks, and incentives. Ownership gives Gen Zers — or any employee — a visual of what lies ahead. If they like what they see, you might’ve just earned a quality employee.5. Reorganize the furniture. This generation is amazing, but you’ll have to do some really important things to be ready for them. You have to reorganize the furniture — not literal furniture, of course, but the “furniture” of your business, because you have new “furniture” coming in.You have to reevaluate your business model and your brand story. Get familiar with that narrative and tell it to potential employees, and you’ll draw exactly the right people to your team. Tech companies might be selling high-concept gadgets and wears, but those solutions usually stem from some kind of need. Weave the gap your company filled into your company’s story in order to give employees power and purpose to stay on and pursue their own opportunities.If you are a leader in a tech field — which is every field these days — you need to know that this generation is redefining the world and its tech solutions. If you’re not embracing Gen Z, you are missing an incredible opportunity. If you are embracing Gen Z but not leveraging its talent, you won’t enjoy the benefits of working with these incredible young hires.You need to walk alongside your Gen Z workers and watch, notice, listen, and hear their heartbeats (or “hear their rhythm in the workplace and our society”) because it will affect the entire world. Data is telling us that it already is, and they’ve only just begun.
