?Human Affect: Policy in Action?

Implementation Initiative Recommendations

Major Group: Farmers
Human Affect 10 Policy in Action Issues: Comparative Compilation

Domestic Abuse/Violence Against Women
Domestic Abuse in rural farm area is associated with an uncertain future relating to the decline of the family farm and lack of alternate rural employment, especially full-time jobs.

Economic Social Ecological Sustainability
Land for the farmers: Many small farmers are poor and some are becoming poorer. A main reason is unequal land distribution, where small farmers have little land security or access and lose a large part of their income to landowners. Land reform is urgently required and landless farmers are fighting for their rights. But the landowners in most countries have political clout and are resisting change.

Agriculture acknowledges in 1999 decades of widespread discrimination against indigenous peoples were denied federal assistance loans without legitimate grounds. Although some were approved payment, but received funds after harvesting season, was left struggling to pay off accumulated interest resulting from lose of property.

Human Trafficking of Young Girls and Boys for the Sex Trade
Human Trafficking is approximately 75-80% is for sex. Young girls and boys are lured with false promises of high-paying farm work. Most trafficking into the commercial sex trade involves young adults.

Child Soldiers in Combat
Recruitment of child soldiers by non-governmental armed groups poses a significant problem for prevention because international human rights law does not bind these armed groups; they are not state actors. The three popular self-employment models that are used in reintegration programs in Central Africa are animal rearing crop farming and small trade or kiosk ownership?If a child is not literate or not numerate, keeping track of stock, dealing with supplies and managing financial flows can be considered almost impossible.

In Cannabis Tens of millions are sick and dying, the displaced, the hungry, homeless and hurting humanity who need better secured agriculture and good cash crops, pastures, grains. This would greatly increase agricultural investments which would level the playing field for farmers and people in Africa.

HIV/AIDS and other Diseases
HIV/AIDS affects agriculture both directly and indirectly at the household level, changing supplies of labor, assets, and
pattern of farming and other activities; as well as affecting communities as a whole and the wider economy; and some of the changes come back to affect farming households.

Climate Change and other Disasters

Among proposed changes: more widespread adoption of so-called no-till farming, a practice that involves leaving un-harvested crop stalks and other plant matter behind in the field undisturbed by plows and other soil-agitating instruments. "

Indigenous Issues/Genealogy
Some indigenous peoples also plant small gardens using a sustainable method called shifting cultivation as a farming technique. Clear small area of land and burn, next plant seedlings, later soil is too poor for crops to grow, and then it?s moved to nearby un-cleared area to farm. Shifting cultivations is still practiced by indigenous peoples who have access to a lot of land.

Women?s Birth Health/Child Health/Water as a Human Right
Investigations concerning babies with birth defects were seven times more likely to be born to women exposed to chemicals used in gardens and fields, compared to women who were involved in dipping livestock used to prevent ticks. Findings suggest alternate farming methods and elimination of reuse of pesticide containers as a preventive measure. Agriculture in Africa is one of the most important income generating activities and the fifth biggest employer in the country. South Africa is one of the major users of pesticides in the continent.

Major Group: Children and Youth
Human Affect 10 Policy in Action Issues: Comparative Compilation

Domestic Abuse/violence against women
Afro American children and youths are subject to more domestic abuse due to low income which is contributed the economy not producing jobs, thereby causing mental distress and tension in the family unit. Frustrations are directed to the children and youths because the inability to meet the demands and concerns dealing with food, clothing and shelter. The children and youths are the ones who are generally taking the brunt of this domestic abuse which can lead to emotional, mental and social damage that can affect development and growth.

Employment and the educational institutions discriminate based on student quotas of students attending their schools. Afro Indigenous children faced with this racism suffer mental and emotional distresses

Human Trafficking of Young Girls and Boys for Sex Trade
Since the Portuguese dominated the transatlantic slave trade. Human Trafficking has not changed much over the centuries. Human Trafficking of young girls start at the age of 5-18 years of age and sex trade of young boys are also on the rise in the United States. Young girls and boys are forced into the sex trade by paying for their services The children are tricked into thinking that they will be honest wages for honest services rendered, but later find out they are slaves to Human Trafficking.

Child Soldiers in Combat
In DRC child soldiers are abducted and forced to join the combat zones. Boys and girls are sexually abused, Most child soldiers are between the ages of 15 and 18 years, but some are as young as seven, and some under 15 years of age.
Children are more vulnerable and not independent decision makers, also they are easy to train and to brutalize and force into a very violent life style.

Homelessness and poverty is prevalent in many African communities. Street has become the way of life for impoverish children. Their unstable lifestyles, lack of medical care and inadequate living conditions increase young people?s chronic illnesses. Often times leading to unprotected sex which is contributed to the HIV/AIDS. Homeless must find ways to eat, some scavenge or fine exploitative work. Many homeless children are enticed by adults and older youths into selling drugs, stealing and prostitution.

HIV/AIDS and other Diseases
In Somalia and Senegal HIV is prevalent in these regions indicating HIV rates and number of people dying varies greatly between African countries. The vast majority of children infected with HIV during pregnancy, childbirth or breastfeeding result from their mother being infected with the virus.

There is a lack of awareness to women positive with HIV/AIDS have a 25-45% chance to pass the disease on to their unborn child.

Major Group: Business and Industry
Human Affect 10 Policy in Action Issues: Comparative Compilation Issues

Domestic Abuse/Violence Against Women

These problems are resulting from lack of financial independence, frustration and Education. Domestic Abuse/Violence affects mental, emotional and major health and social issues. Businesses and Industries are faced with absenteeism, and lack of productivity.

Economic-Social Ecological Sustainability

Business and Industries affects racial tolerance continues to be a clear trend in American society, it is still a major factor concerning employment, housing, Education and health care. Low income is one of the contributing factors concerning these issues in the Afro Indigenous community.

Human Trafficking of young girls and boys for the sex trade
One of today?s biggest human rights crises is the, food international trafficking of girls and boys into sex slavery. This generally happens when businesses and industries continue to outsource their product for low-cost labor. Human, trafficking generates profit since freedom of choice and economic gain are the heart of productivity. Victims are typically very young, most ranging in age from eight to 18 years old. Some are as young as four or five years old

Child soldiers in combat
As of July 2011 new reports indicate children continue to serve as child soldiers in some of the Central African Republics armed groups. Many children living in the CAR are still vulnerable to being recruited into armed groups operating in parts of the country.

Homelessness and Poverty is the lack of permanent housing resulting from extreme poverty and unsafe unstable living environments. Employment and low wages are the common denominator for those with little to no Education. The staggering statistics of the Afro indigenous peoples are being reported and most are at risk for losing their jobs and unfortunately are the ones that will be the most affected.

HIV/AIDS were brought in to the Afro-Indigenous communities by European homosexuals that passed this disease onto the Afro-Indigenous men that were bi-sexual in nature and later transmitted the disease to their female partners. Prior to 1980 there were other diseases prevalent in the indigenous communities which if contracted had medical cures.
HIV/AIDS dramatically affect business and industries by setting back economic and social progress, adding costs depleting skills with absenteeism accounting for much of company costs.

Climate Change and other Disasters
Clean energy is one of the major solutions and valuable keys that will unlock and ensure sustainable use of our natural resources. Shareholders and stockholders are demanding businesses and industries to demonstrate effective practices by incorporating these tools. It is important for business and industry commit to innovative solutions that will benefit our economy and sustainable development.

Indigenous Issues/Genealogy
Business and industries concerns for Afro indigenous peoples should be focused on Human Rights and Civil Rights, Economic and Social issues, Discrimination of race, gender, employment and reasonable health insurance availability for all workers. They have a responsibility to respect all human rights and engage in human rights at all levels.

Women?s Birth Health/Child Health/Water as a Human Right

Birth centers health that help encourage and build self esteem , Business and Industry insurance policies that reflect low-cost visits to Women?s Birth Health Facilities.

Major Group: Workers and Trade Unions
Human Affect 10 Policy in Action Issues: Comparative Compilation Issues

Domestic Abuse/Violence Against Women

Trade Union are saying ?NO? to Domestic Violence by reinforcing Union Policies and actions to stop Violence Against Women in cooperation with the Global Union Federation. They have incorporated plans, initiatives and actions to place these concerns as priority, by wiping out Violence against Women in homes, societies and workplaces, in order for women to have equal opportunities to be functional in their work and life.

Economic, Social and Ecological Sustainability

Trade Union Actions to Promote Environmentally Sustainable Development they are vital in facilitating the achievement of sustainable development due to their experience in addressing industrial change, the high priority they gave towards protection of the working environment in regards to domestic violence and related natural environment and their promotion of socially responsible and economic development..


Millions of workers around the country is suffering with discrimination based on color, cultural differences and ethic and national origin. Trade Unions must wholeheartedly take up the rights to defending and protecting the rights of those people affected by directly or indirect racism, and must adopt a specific clear direct and determined approach to fighting racism.

Human Trafficking of Young Girls and Boys for Sex Trade/Trafficking of Indigenous Population for Sustainable Developed and Undeveloped and Developing Countries

Human Trafficking is prevalent throughout the developed and undeveloped and developing countries of the Indigenous Population and Diaspora. Young boys and girls are forced to serve as sex slaves. Young girls are the most crucial their perpetrators. Trade Unions priority should be is to set in place Partnerships/Endorsements with Coalition Enforcements and Political Actors to eradicate Human Trafficking in these countries.

Refugee Children in Combat/Refugee Human Displacement

Recognizing child labor as a violation of children's and workers' rights, trade unions are joining with families and community organizations to combat child labor, to move children out of work and into school, and to support core labor standards which will promote, strong unions that will protect against child labor, improve conditions through effective unions, children are much less likely to have to work, to build alliances with unions in other countries and union and community organization.

Overcrowded refugee camps in Kenya and Ethiopia are receiving some 3000 new displaced refugees every day families flee from famine stricken and war torn areas. In the Horn of Africa food and water is that is used to support millions are disappearing rapidly, which causes those that are strong enough to travel on foot hundreds of miles to make it to the refugee center seeking food and aid. Over 800.00 Somalians, Ethiopians, Eritreas and Kenyans are malnourished and die at an early age.

Homelessness, Eradication of Poverty

Last year in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe the leaders attacked the leaders of the local farm workers union and they were forced to scatter. The International Labor Organization was one of the largest trade union in the agricultural sector, but due to the government takeover of the farmland and reallocation of Zimbabwe farms mostly owned by white people, Zimbabwe fell into a deep recession and the farms were taken over by squatters, which caused farmers workers to be displaced, loose homes, property, income and access to vital services after the farms where they worked were invaded and new owners terminated all contracts of previous workers. Union officials continue to flee the country and workers find themselves evicted and destitute.

HIV/AIDS and Other Diseases

Trade unions are educating workers about the prevention of HIV/AIDS, and its devastating effects. Pamphlets are widely distributed amongst all workers and are encouraged to attend workshops and open discussion in the classroom. Also a survey was conducted on affiliated trade union in Africa to identify trade unions which are particularly affected by the virus and highlight priorities for action. Zimbabwe is developing a project which focuses on training women as educators and counselors on HIV/AIDS to reach as wide a community as possible to spread general awareness about the virus.


Trade unions are engaging with community workers to initiate training with children and young people. Also by putting emphasis on educating them on hazardous environment that aims to improve engagement of workers and trade unions in the development and implementation of Child Welfare and Social networks.

Climate Change

Trade unions have been involved in this issue for some years. They have organized a conference of workers on the issues of the environment how to prevent poisoning of the atmosphere and raised the issue of the environment and global warming and how to implement the ?Green? economy, reduce carbon emissions. They will end up believing and getting involved in this cause for one simple reason. As the climate changes and as resources dry up the nature of work and employment will change across the planet.

Women Birth Health/health Women with birth complications premature babies, sick children, accident victims and people dependent on antiretroviral medication have literally been caught in the crossfire between strikers and government some have already died while others will die as the result. What can Trade Unions do to help to facilitate and ensure proper measure are take in the areas to educate Afro Indigenous women of the Disapora with Birth Health Issues
