At the Yacht Club de Monaco meetings and panels were held on the future of the yachting industry

MONACO, March 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The first day of an intense week of initiatives comes to an end at the Yacht Club de Monaco, where meetings, discussions and panels dedicated to yachting and sustainability were held. On the occasion of the sixth Monaco Ocean Week, an initiative supported by the Prince Albert II Foundation, as every year, the YCM is in charge of the Yachting with the 12th edition of the Environmental symposium, the Captain’s forum and the Explorers’ Awards. Moreover the YCM is hosting the Monaco Smart Yacht Rendezvous. “So many initiatives that are part of our collective approach ‘Monaco, Capital of Advanced Yachting’. This is what we want to be: an innovation platform to support the yachting industry. It is necessary to demonstrate that yachting moves responsibly and intends to improve in order to bring an evolution in society,” says YCM secretary general, Bernard d’Alessandri.

Focus of the Environmental symposium was the tenth edition of the Monaco Energy Boat Challenge (scheduled for July) which brought attention to alternative energies and energy efficiency and how these issues are addressed by the new generations of engineers. “Young people can contribute a lot to change and bring all-round innovation, for this we have to work on propulsion, hulls, structures, materials and source of energy. We have to work step by step and develop technologies with all the players in the sector, starting with producers and shipowners,” underlines Thomas Grosjean, marine fuel cell engineer of Shipping Lab.

Highlights of this first day: the YCM Explorer Awards of La Belle Classe Superyachts awards ceremony. The awards are destined to owners who stand out for their commitment to protecting the marine environment, both in the design of their yacht and in the way they use it. The ceremony was attended by Prince Albert II of Monaco: “Not only do we need to continue exploring but also to carry this feeling with us in everything we do. We must continue to be fascinated by what nature and the ocean show us, at the same time preserve it and witness it,” says the prince who is also president of the Yacht Club.

Assigned by a jury of experts they were given out for three categories: Technology & Innovation awarded to S/Y Marie Joseph (24m), Mediation & Science awarded to M/Y Ocean Explorer (87m) and Adventure & Environmental Ethics awarded to S/Y SeaHawk (59m). M/V Plastic Odyssey (39m) triumphed in the Coup de Coeur category. “Plastic Odyssey – says the founder Simon Bernard – is an expedition around the world that began with the intention of fighting plastic pollution by involving local entrepreneurs in recycling it before it is disposed of in the sea. It is an honor to be here, above all because we are young. I was here in 2018 for the Monaco Energy Boat Challenge and a few years later I’m here again to collect this award, an exciting moment for me.”

Part of the day was dedicated to the 27th Captains’ Forum with a focus on management and skills. “Without teamwork on board, we would be powerless – says Paul Rose, explorer and popularizer – Regardless of the size of the vessel, it is necessary to work in a welcoming environment and with ease, to avoid the slightest problem and ensure the safety of the crew but also the guests on board. The management and leadership could not be more valuable. As a micro-company, the members of a crew have a well-defined role is a very interesting model to observe and it would be wise to draw inspiration from it.” In general, “what we have to do is be able to communicate to people that the world of yachting and those who work in it are all closely connected with the ocean. So their opinion on ocean conservation has a significant weight, even when confronted with politicians and business leaders, because she was trained right at sea.”

The discussions will continue today with the Monaco Smart Yacht Rendez-vous organised by Monaco Marina Management. HSH Prince Albert II came today to discover the innovative solutions, proposed by start-ups, scaleups and corporates, and which are applicable for superyachts.

Ethiopia and the Netherlands Endorse the Launch of a Groundbreaking Private Sector Water Management Initiative by Nedamco Africa to Improve Water Needs for Over 10 Million People

The Governments of Ethiopia and The Netherlands endorse the Nedamco Africa Water Management Initiative

Left to Right: H.E. Dr. Eng. Habtamu Itefa Geleta, Minister for the Ministry of Water and Energy of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia; Mrs. Kitty van der Heijden, Director-General, International Cooperation at Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of the Netherlands; Mr. Michael Kogeler – Chief Executive Officer, Nedamco Africa.

“In a joint press statement today, the Government of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia and the Kingdom of the Netherlands, along with their partners, endorsed the launch by Nedamco Africa of an innovative initiative to implement Water Management through a fully digital approach. This groundbreaking endeavor has the potential to significantly improve the water quality, facilitate direct access, and increase the availability of water volumes for approximately 10 million individuals residing in the metropolitan area of Addis Ababa.”

NEW YORK, March 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today at the UN23 Water Conference in New York, H.E. Dr. Eng. Habtamu Itefa Geleta, Minister for the Ministry of Water and Energy of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, and Kitty van der Heijden, Director-General International Cooperation at Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, endorsed the launch of the Ethiopian SDG6 Water Management initiative. The initiative has the aim to improve the water needs of millions of people and will be based on digitally verifiable outcomes focused on the reduction of non-revenue water, increase of water quality, increased access to water, and higher availability of water. In a “first-ever”, leveraging the latest available technologies, the solution will measure, report, and verify outcomes of Water Management, starting in Addis Ababa, a city of 10 million inhabitants, starting in a sub-set of the city, using Digital Twins in a fully digital and transparent manner. This project is a collaboration of the Ethiopian local and federal government and multiple innovators in the profit and non-profit sectors like Microsoft, Bentley Systems, Deltares and VEI. The launch is endorsed by the Dutch Government. The SDG6 Water Management initiative has the potential to be rolled out to over nineteen other countries in fifty-five cities, improving the water needs of half a billion people.

Changing lives – African water challenges – In this era of climate disruption, African cities are grappling with a plethora of water-related challenges that are impacting the lives of their residents. The lack of infrastructure and investment is one of the main obstacles, resulting in restricted access to clean and safe water for many people. In addition, water pollution and contamination are prevalent, especially in informal settlements where residents have limited means of obtaining clean water. Furthermore, climate change and rising water demand are putting additional pressure on already scarce water resources, compounding the existing water challenges in African cities. These challenges must be addressed with innovative and sustainable solutions that improve access to safe water and ensure the long-term sustainability of water resources.

“We Africans are highly affected by the carbon emission released by the developed nations, and we are way behind to achieve the SDGs with the current pace unless we deploy new technologies and innovations. By synergizing the vision and mission of the two most committed and robust partners on the planet, along with the latest digital technologies available for water management at scale, we have a unique opportunity and responsibility to transform the daily lives of hundreds of millions of people in Africa, who are suffering a lot in search of clean water. Therefore, call to action for Africans to join for cooperation and integration to transform the lives of our citizens,” stated H.E. Dr. Eng. Habtamu Itefa Geleta, Minister for the Ministry of Water and Energy of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia.

True impact through results-based financing – The parties are adopting a results-based financing approach. Through collaboration, knowledge sharing, and the use of innovative technologies and best practices, we aim to unite the world around water and pool global resources and expertise. The innovative solution, jointly developed by Dutch and international water eco-system players will help us overcome the water challenges that we face worldwide. The SDG6 Water Management initiative will ensure that partnerships between governments, businesses, and civil society are forged, leading to sustainable and equitable use of water that benefits all.

“Water management is at the heart of our nation’s identity. We have been facing the challenges of water for centuries, and through collaboration and innovation, we have found ways to turn these challenges into opportunities. In the Netherlands, I am proud to say that we have a long history of working together to manage our water resources. From our world-renowned systems of dykes and pumps, to our innovative approaches to water treatment and reuse, we have shown that it is possible to turn the challenges of water into opportunities for progress and prosperity. By working together, the world can do the same. Together, we can build a future where everyone has access to the clean water they need to thrive, where our rivers and lakes are protected from pollution and overuse, and where we are able to adapt to the changing demands of a rapidly changing world,” said Kitty van der Heijden, Director-General International Cooperation at Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands.

Technology for good – Digital twin technology has the potential to significantly enhance water management in Africa, leading to better outcomes for communities in need. By creating a virtual replica of physical assets, such as water distribution systems, digital twins can be used to analyze, monitor, and optimize water usage and distribution in real-time. This, in turn, can lead to more efficient and effective management of water resources, reducing waste and improving water security. Digital twin technology can also help detect and prevent water leaks and other issues, thereby enhancing the access to clean water for communities, which is especially critical in areas with water scarcity. Additionally, digital twin technology can aid in the development of new water infrastructure projects, such as reservoirs, by simulating and assessing these projects in a virtual environment. This approach can provide valuable insights into the potential impact and effectiveness of these projects, reducing the risk of failure and improving outcomes.

Anke den Ouden, General Manager of Microsoft Netherlands, stated, “The introduction of digital twin technology in water management has the potential to significantly improve access to clean water and water security in Africa. It can optimize water usage and distribution, leading to a better quality of life for people in the region. We at Microsoft are proud to be a part of this initiative.”

Impact Investments for a better world – Nedamco Africa is a company that invests in, and is fully committed to making a positive impact on Africa and the global environment. They recognize the crucial role that water management plays in the sustainability of the continent and are focused on finding innovative solutions to the challenges facing Africa’s water supply. Nedamco Africa’s investment strategy prioritizes the measurement of impact over financial returns, emphasizing sustainable solutions that benefit the environment and communities in Africa. They invest in cutting-edge technologies, such as cloud skills, digital twins, and climate-friendly solutions to create a lasting positive impact. In water management, Nedamco Africa is working to improve access to safe drinking water, reduce water waste, and promote water conservation. Nedamco Africa is a driving force for impact investments that contribute to creating a better world for everyone.

Michael Kogeler, CEO of Nedamco Africa, expressed, “With a complete commitment to Africa and the planet, Nedamco Africa is at the forefront of impact investments that prioritize sustainability and positive impact. Our emphasis on innovative technologies and measurement of the impact of our investments is driving positive change and creating a better future for Africa and the world.”

Vietnam, Laos hold defence policy dialogue

The Vietnamese and Lao defence ministries held the third deputy ministerial-level defence policy dialogue in the Lao northern province of Houaphane on March 23.

The Vietnamese delegation was led by Deputy Defence Minister Sen. Lieut. Gen. Hoang Xuan Chien while the Lao delegation was headed by Deputy Defence Minister Lieut. Gen. Vongkham Phommakone.

They shared the view that ASEAN-led mechanisms continue playing a central role in the region, promoting diplomacy and cooperation among member countries and with external partners, for the sake of regional peace and stability.

Stressing that the East Sea is still an area that holds uncertainties, they said maintaining an environment of peace, stability, cooperation and development in the East Sea is a crucial issue in the region and the world, not only for coastal but also for landlocked countries.

About bilateral defence cooperation, they expressed their delight that their defence cooperation mechanisms have been resumed since COVID-19 was under control in each country. Military Zones and Border Guard Command of Vietnam worked closely with their Lao counterparts to hold various cooperation activities, such as exchanging information, promoting the efficiency of exchange and twinning models, fighting crimes and organising border friendship exchanges, contributing to the Vietnam-Laos borderline of peace, friendship, cooperation and development.

This year, they agreed to bolster coordination between border guards through diverse and practical forms, accelerate the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding on border guard cooperation between the two ministries, raise awareness of officers, soldiers, and people of both countries about the great friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between the two Parties, States, armies and peoples.

They will continue attaching importance to personnel training which is an important strategic area for relationship between the two countries armies, hold the defence friendship exchange at the ministerial level between Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, the annual meeting of the three defence ministers and a joint exercise later this year.
