  • Promote policies that foster an enabling environment and recognise the important role of young women as agents of economic stabilisation and growth.
  • Mainstream gender in all plans, policies and programmes which are aimed at empowering, protecting and supporting youth.

  • Coordinate efforts of governments, UN agencies, NGOs, academics and the private sector to transform education to enable flexible learning opportunities beyond schooling.
  • Note that youth entrepreneurship is a driving force of socio-economic development.
  • Act to create conditions conducive to youth entrepreneurs.

The declaration is the outcome of a full day of discussions at the Investing in the Future Conference (IIFMENA), which is organised by global humanitarian organisation, TBHF, under the theme, ‘Youth – Crisis Challenges and Development Opportunities’ offering its global platform once every two years to address a pressing humanitarian problem in the region.

The Centre Hospitalier de la Côte Basque (CHCB) in Bayonne has been using Biolog-id's C-LOG® solution since early April 2019. This solution secures and optimizes the circuit of chemotherapy and immunotherapy, from their preparation all the way to the administration to the patient. The C-LOG® solution has been used at the CHCB. "During the last HAS audit, a lack of traceability was revealed in the chemotherapy circuit. In order to close this gap, we decided to install the C-LOG® solution which, in addition to securing the administration to the patient's bed, makes it possible to trace the preparation circuit from the pharmacy to the reception in the nurses station," says Dr. Burtin, Pharmacist at CHCB. The solution will be tested for evaluation for 3 months before final adoption. "The RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology is the foundation of our solution.

CSC Announces Cyber Security Findings for the Media Industry20.6.2019 18:00:00 EESTTiedote

Securing a company’s digital infrastructure has become a major concern to corporations worldwide. With leading security companies and other organizations alerting corporations and the public to recent widespread, state-sponsored domain name system (DNS) hijacking, more and more brands are starting to take action. CSC has been issuing Cyber Security Reports since 2017, culling the most important information about security risks, and in particular, risks to brands that are not mitigated by a traditional firewall. The recent research conducted by CSC focuses on the media industry, revealing that 78% of global media brands use a corporate domain registrar, yet only 37% of those have a registrar lock to protect their DNS from hijacking. Recent domain hijacking, unauthorized changes, and deletion of vital domains have shown that effectively managing domain names and DNS must become a critical component for enhancing the security posture of any company with an online presence.
