been outspoken i think they have already found what you might say is a good foundation i know what the buzz is good for. when you're watching the news or from ballet and i have an hour free and up next my colleague monica joan to school all you need to know from the world of business i'll be back at the top of the hour that. i'm secure in the war that's hard and in the end this is a me you're not allowed to stay here and more we will send you that. are you familiar with this. with the smugglers we're alliance of. what's your story.
ready on what numbers of women especially are victims of violence. take part and send us your story we are trying in all weathers to understand this new culture. for you are not a villa turn up in years you want to become a citizen. in for migrants your platform for reliable information. today sir even g 7 leaders at this summit writes about when it change anything oxfam says no it takes more than just words. also coming up how to turn an aggressive weed into a climate friendly charcoal senegal just found
a way. to welcome to do business africa monica johns in berlin thanks for joining us french president. has promised that this year's summit of g 7 leaders in berets will focus on the fight against inequality is a tall order given that the g 7 have been talking about this issue for years now with little to show for at least that's what g 7 critics say among them oxfam ahead of the summit the organization set out 7 key issues it's this the g 7 must act on. for years oxfam activists have shown up at g 7 summits to protest against social inequality this time around in bihar it is no exception the g 7 countries oxfam says have to get their act together with. the protesters demands include increased climate protection more funding for education and health fair tax
systems and gender equality some of these points like the one concerning gender equality came up in talks on friday between a man the president of g 7 host country france and n.-g. o. representatives but several protests calling for an end to empty promises are still slated to take place on the sidelines of the summit. well let's talk a bit about oxfam's demands there joining us from berates where the g.'s 7 summits takes place this weekend is oxfam spokesman. good to have you with us so we just heard about oxfam reports in which you basically name and shame the g 7 for the 7 deadly sins french president has pledged that he would put equality or inequality high on the agenda do you think this is just lip service. but we are pleased that it's on the agenda of the g. 7 because we think it should be on the agenda of every g 7 and also by the be on
the agenda of the g. 20 because the g 7 g g 20 the the the have caused this problem and they must change the policy so it's lip service so far because income inequality and inequality of both has been rising since the 1980 s. now to end inequality of course one of the suggestions or demands you make is fair tax more investment in education and health can the g 7 or even the g 20 realistically deliver all of that on their own to what extent is there also responsibility on the side of developing nations like africa. of course site of the coin of development so to speak if you need responsible governments but you also need an active civil society and we need macroeconomic konami context which is in favor like
a fear texas for example the african governments they have the responsibility for their domestic resource mobilization they have to put in place tech systems that are efficient but on the other hand for example if corporates national international companies are allowed on a legal basis to avoid taxes and to shift their profits to tax even. to the extent of the buy. you can shift money and 200000000000 u.s. dollars into texas even this is money bridge which governments in africa and elsewhere in the developing world he needs very urgently to invest in good quality public services like health and education to fight in the quality now of course we're witnessing a movement towards protectionist even nationalism and some of the so-called developed world including members of the g 7 how. well are you that a topic like climate change will be high enough on the summit agenda.
president put climate on the agenda also please visit and at least the g 7 except probably 0 responsibility us the must opposite the must really fulfill their promises i mean so far as. climate targets are not high enough the must get higher targets n.z. must implement them also the german government i mean we have seen so often that the government the blow to the pressure of the fossil fuel industry like car makers like traffic culture this has to change dramatically and i hope that we live in a. public pressure as a rising young friday for future movements a result of the latest european elections have shown that public support for strong climate action is rising and that there will be a signal from the g 7 so there is time to walk the walk now you and kalinski from joining us from here it's thank you. the inequality is not only
a problem in that 7 or in developing countries if you ask women in switzerland they too have a story to tell it's merely down to the fact that once children are involved swiss women fall off the korean grit and that's especially palatable in rural regions. lives on a farm in the beautiful region of argo in switzerland and she's an advocate for women's rights many women in the region are totally dependent on their husband she says they aren't paid and have little or no social security. you've probably heard by there are problems when the couples get divorced the wife loses her home because the farm is often inherited from the husband's parents the woman married into it and when she leaves it's hard to prove how much work she's put in all of us nothing if i thought that's why baumann has a part time job and a prenuptial agreement her husband is very supportive. i think it's
good we often discuss matters like these over breakfast. bowman upset many of her neighbors when she asks them to join a demonstration they saw the protest as a provocation. that took place last june 100000 women hit the streets across the country demanding better pay and affordable child care and because swiss management often looks like this more like this we're like this. manuela hanukah says that women in switzerland find it nearly impossible to combine family and career. 80 percent of swiss mothers who have small children only work part time while the fathers continue to climb the career ladder this is the right to learn in a country as rich is this it's absurd that human have so little income and a so dependent for survival on either their husband or the state. it's incredibly
unfair. advocates say one step towards more justice would be more paternity leave for fathers legally male employees get just one day off when their child is born i think it's a good 1st minute if this topic really were important to fathers then paternity leave laws would have changed long ago but if there are more men and women in our parliament. the women's rights demonstration had a big impact when its advocates say it's long overdue. and other news china has unveiled retaliatory tariffs on about $75000000000.00 worth of u.s. goods putting an additional 10 percent on top of existing rates the move in the tit for tat exchanges comes after washington and there's tariffs on an additional $300000000000.00 worth of chinese goods including consumer electronics the new levees are scheduled to go into effect in 2 stages on september 1st and december 15th. u.s. federal reserve chairman jerome powell has given no indication of any change to
interest rate policy in his speech to the u.s. central banks annual gathering in jackson hole wyoming pressure has been building on powell to lower interest rates not least from u.s. president on a trump who has regularly targeted power on twitter a power said only that the fed would act as appropriate to sustain the expansion it did have some strong words on global trade though saying that the fed found itself in an quote unprecedented situation due to the on. us china conflict. trade conflicts climate change geopolitical tensions these are among the many major problems world leaders have to deal with these days and there's often little time left to tackle individual regional challenges so it's down to the locals themselves to come up with solutions an extra porch takes us to senegal. we now provide shelter and sustainable steady income. for the senegalese farmer clearing out
wheat has become a lifeline. g.b. dione your harvests the type of plant in order to provide his village with a precious commodity fuel. we make time for charcoal we also use it for the roofs of our houses and enclosures for the animals. it feels like payback years ago the invasive weed crept into his field and those of many farmers on the banks of the senegal river leaving them helpless. in. need and we used to cultivate rice over there millette on the other side and melons too we have to stop growing rice in these fields all because of tifa. now deion you know if he can turn the weed into a year round income after joining a co-operative run by women in a nearby village. about it was
a dry night he on you takes them to the thai for charcoal processing plant on the women take over. first the typhus troy's burned and then mixed with come around because before being pressed into pellets the women churn out 5 or 6 times a week of this clean burning fuel. in wrong make shift market type for charcoal pellets sell for 15 euro cents a burg. wood is scarce because villages in this region have cut down almost all the trees for use as fuel. is the sustainable answer for cooking in a place where electricity and gas are out of reach for most. doesn't only use type for charcoal it turns out the weed is a perfect material for a cooling waterproof roof to. abraham cilla was wrecking his brains to think of a senegalese alternative to the fact grooves he'd seen in europe the answer was right under his nose. the people i knew in brittany had never heard of time
so i took some to france to show them they said it looked like it would work and that's how it all began to. sell a roof to school and several houses with his stanch tifr and as overseen training for local artisans to take the method back to their villages around 50 men have become traditional factures through the program. in a region threatened by climate change and the ravaged by deforestation cooking on thai for charcoal under a time for roof has given villages sustainable means of tackling serious problems. and that's all of this is africa you're into w. from me and the team in berlin thanks for giving us company.
