    How the Ocean Slows Climate Change
    Without the ocean, climate change would proceed far more quickly. The massive volumes of water in the seas greatly influence the changes occurring in our atmosphere.
    Climate change, particularly global warming, is mainly caused by the CO2 we release into the atmosphere by burning fossil fuels like coal and oil. Since the beginning of industrialization in the 19th century the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere has risen by 40 percent. CO2 is a greenhouse gas. If not for the ocean, temperatures would be even higher than they are now.

    About the Ocean Atlas 2017
    The ocean covers more than two-thirds of our planet's surface. It is rich in resources and provides us with food, energy, and minerals. Oceans are important transportation routes and crucial for the stability of our climate and the weather. But due to overfishing, the loss of biodiversity, and ocean pollution, the future of this unique ecosystem faces a grave threat today. Show less

    "The stories of 9 African women politicians"

    Over the last 50 years, many African countries have established national gender machineries and implemented quota systems to accelerate the entrance of women representatives into formal political institutions. The results of this are striking: while in 1960 only 1% of Africa's political representatives were women, in 2009, this figure was closer to 20%.

    However, achieving "critical mass", and establishing gender machineries have not consistently translated into governance that is more gender sensitive -- that actively works to correct social, economic and cultural power imbalances. Women largely carry the burden of poverty and care work, while retaining very little access to decision making power, both privately and publicly. Gender based violence is widespread, as are cultural practices that privilege tradition over women's equity.

    In response to this, and as a capacity building measure both for partners and themselves, three of Heinrich Böll Stiftung's Africa offices -- South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria -- have embarked on a 2 year learning project to critically reflect on their countries' instruments to advance gender sensitive political governance -- as well as promote it.

    The project's main output will be 3 learning forums, one in each of the partner countries that will bring together feminist academics, activists and political actors for exchange and reflection on engendering leadership in Africa. The video profiles included on this page comprise one of the learning tools that will be employed in these forums and beyond: the stories of 9 African women politicians who, under different conditions, political systems, and in their own way, have tried to use their political platforms to advance women's rights. The videos aim to foster debate about how they have navigated political and personal challenges.

    The videos featured on this page are only the first in the series. They feature Julia Ojiambo, Eddah Gachukia, Joan Mjomba (Kenya); Janet Semple, Lynne Brown, Nandi Mayathula-Khoza (South Africa); and Hajiya Maryam Inna Ciroma, Nkoyo Toyo and Hajiya Naja'atu Mohammed (Nigeria).
