The initial strategy was to boost volumes, but this resulted in a decline in fruit quality. Then in 2010/11 shockwaves rippled throughout the sector when Germany suspended imports after sulphur residues on lychees were found to be above the threshold allowed by European regulations. This led to a complete overhaul of the Malagasy lychee production sector, and an extensive certification programme was initiated. Only a few exporters had…

The occasion was the Global Voices Citizen Media Summit, a biennial conference on the state of citizen media, blogging, journalism and activism.

    Many of the panels at the Global Voices summit offer a global perspective on difficult reporting challenges. “When the Stakes Are High and the Story Ever Changing: Online Crisis Reporting” Moderator Lauren Finch explains that these look like simple stories to handle: they erupt, a professional or citizen reporter offers their take, and we repeat as necessary. But that’s becoming harder and harder. Governments routinely go into propaganda overdrive, and we need to unpack what’s real, what’s imagined and aspirational. A flood of citizen generated media means we can…

    My Ouma (Granny) when asked how she managed to  last so long with my Grandfather, she would say that sometimes you “Just have to grin and bear it”, she emphasised that she had to do the quite often though.  Repeatedly as our workplace relationships evolve, both employees and employers often find themselves just grinning and bearing it.  The battle between these age old foes, the bosses and the workers is one that has been with us through the ages with no real and tangible solution ever been presented. These two groups often find themselves at opposite polars when it comes down to the…

As South Africa battles with an electricity crisis, independent power suppliers have offered Eskom some solutions to keep the lights on.

    When  you’re thinking of #STARTing a business its easy to come to a conclusion that everything is done,  and there’s nothing that one can create under the sun that does not exist yet. If that’s how you feel, I’m happy to tell you that you’re wrong. The year 1985 was an ideal time to start an internet business partly because there was not a single online store, online book store, search engine or even a social network as we know them today. A lot has happened since then and now it feels as if nothing can be done that does not exist yet. The internet was a wide open frontier then.

    Mike
    26 Feb 2015 | 3:19 am
    Let me tell you how advertising agencies work. Agencies, by and large, sell hours. Unless they find a way to productise intellectual property or build a clever piece of proprietary technology, agency businesses scale by adding staff as they add clients. Win a client, hire people. Lose a client, fire people. Agency owners and executives make money by consolidating with or selling to larger agencies or networks. When founders or shareholders exit they leave their organisation without its key creative or strategic leadership, often with catastrophic implications. The cycle repeats itself over…

    “I hate meetings.” The most frequently spoken words at Cerebra. Closely followed by “Let’s have a meeting.” Meetings are widely considered an abominable waste of time. And yet, we still have them. We still have them because despite all the wondrous technology at our fingertips we haven’t (yet) developed a comparable replacement for real human interaction. The value of the verbal, non-verbal and environmental cues of a face-to-face engagement are invaluable. Meetings are necessary, but meetings are also undeniably broken.

    Johannesburg is home. It has been home my whole life and my love affair with this city means I could not dream of living elsewhere unless forced to. This said, Jozi can be a tough place to live.

I am lucky though. I’ve never been the victim of violent crime, I have a great job, and tonnes of friends to hang out with every weekend. I’m also brutally aware that this is written from the…

    S. Amer Ahmed

    Total dependency ratio, 1950-2030 * Africa’s population grew at an average annual rate of 2.6 percent between 1950 and 2014, much faster than the global average of 1.7 percent as estimated from UN population projection data. During this time, the region experienced a demographic transition, moving from a period of high mortality and fertility rates to one of lower mortality, yet still high fertility rates. Other regions, most notably East Asia, took advantage of their transitions to accelerate growth, and reap a so-called ‘demographic dividend’. Africa is now being presented a similar…

    Much of the media coverage of children during West Africa’s Ebola epidemic has been focused on orphans. Repeatedly, we have read heartbreaking stories of children who have lost parents to the disease and even been rejected by their communities. These children deserve our attention: We know that losing a parent has both short-term and long-term impacts. Evidence from Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, and across Africa demonstrates significant reductions in educational outcomes for orphans in the short run. Evidence from Tanzania shows that adverse education and health effects persist into…
