Seychelles Institute of Technology recognized as one of the world's 10 innovative TVET centers

The Seychelles Institute of Technology (SIT) has been recognized as one of the world's 10 innovative technical and vocational education and training (TVET) institutions. The institute is working closely with the UNESCO-UNEVOC, which is based in Bonn, Germany and is an international centre for connecting the UNESCO Member States worldwide to develop and strengthen TVET. The TVET sector in Seychelles is being guided by the UNESCO Education 2030 Framework of Action as well as the UNESCO TVET strategy 2016-2021. “As a testimony to our engagement one of our professional centers, SIT has been recognized as one of the UNEVOC centres participating actively in the skills for innovation – innovation-hub project – being piloted by UNESCO-UNEVOC,” said Minister for Education and Human Resources Development, Jeanne Simeon. Hubert Barbe, SIT’s director, told SNA on Tuesday that the recognition comes after the center has actively undertaken initiatives in sustainability, renewable energy, and energy efficiency. “For instance, we have trained our students doing plumbing to install rainwater harvesting system and through this, we have partnered with different organisations and installed these systems in different places in the community,” explained Barbe. SIT was established in 2015 and its vision is to be a premier professional centre providing high quality technical and vocational education and training in the engineering, built environment and information and communication technology fields. (Seychelles Nation) Photo License:  CC-BY Lecturers are also being trained through a programme with La Reunion – a French department in the Indian Ocean – to train future technicians in the installations of photovoltaic panels and solar water heaters. “We are also training our students to retrofit containers as energy-efficient that can be used as offices,” said Barbe. SIT students were also included in training and built the first-ever gabion rock barrage on the island nation. This was through a project using an approach that emphasises a natural approach to advanced engineering.  This has led to sufficient water supply for a farming community in the south of the main island of Mahe, which for years has faced severe water shortages.

And greening TVET is something that is very high on UNEVOC’s agenda,” explained Alcindor. Later this year TVET representatives from Malta and Kenya will come to Seychelles  -115 islands in the western Indian Ocean  -- to learn more about what the institution is doing. “Our initiatives and that of the other nine TVET centers will be used as a basis for a manual of guidelines being developed which will then be shared with TVET centers in other countries,” explained Barbe. The Seychelles Institute of Technology is also considering introducing an innovation award for its students.

Monsoon toll tops 650 as rains unleash flood fury in South Asia

Severe floods and lightning have claimed the lives of more than 650 people across India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan, officials said Monday as the annual monsoon took its toll on the rainfed region. More than 10 million people in the South Asian countries have been affected by the deluge, which has also forced tens of thousands to flee their homes. In India, heavy rains since the start of July have killed at least 467 people with many districts in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Assam states cut off because of flooding. In Uttar Pradesh on Sunday, lightning strikes killed 37 people in separate incidents, a disaster management official told AFP. The latest fatalities took the northern state's toll to 228 dead. Eight children playing in the open in Bihar's Nawada district were also killed by lightning on Friday, taking the toll in the eastern state to more than 100 as rivers overflowed their banks and swept away people, houses and cattle. In Assam, 67 people have perished but the situation was likely to improve with no heavy rains predicted in the coming days. But the prospects were grim for southern India's coastal state of Kerala where authorities Monday warned of «extremely heavy falls» in isolated places. India's coastal Karnataka, West Bengal and Himalayan Sikkim states were also bracing for heavy downpours. More than 70 people have also died in building collapses in Maharashtra and Himachal Pradesh states following substantial rainfalls. In neighbouring Nepal, 90 people have died and another 29 are missing, although the worst seems to be over in the Himalayan country. «Rains have been predicted this week and we are on alert, but we don't expect it to have a severe impact,» home ministry official Bedh Nidhi Khanal said. Torrential rains in flood-prone Bangladesh have killed more than 97 people -- most by drowning and lightning strikes -- in the last two weeks, with swathes of agricultural fields lying inundated. A third of the country has been submerged as major rivers including the Brahmaputra -- which broke a 44-year water-level record last week -- and the Ganges burst their banks from heavy rains and from water from India and Nepal. At least 30 people have also lost their lives in Pakistan. While the annual rains are crucial to replenishing water supplies in the impoverished region, they often turn deadly. Experts blame poor planning, the lack of drainage facilities and tardy relief operations for the casualties. © Agence France-Presse

La coalition de l'opposition des Seychelles annonce leur processus de sélection des candidats à la présidentielle pour 2020

La principale coalition de l'opposition des Seychelles, Linyon Demokratik Seselwa (LDS), a annoncé au cours du week-end le processus de sélection d'un candidat pour l'élection présidentielle de l'année prochaine. Toute personne souhaitant se porter candidat à la présidence pour LDS peut soumettre sa lettre d'intérêt. La date limite est le 31 août. Lors d’une réunion des militants au Centre international de conférences de Victoria, samedi, Roger Mancienne, chef du parti, a déclaré que le parti souhaitait avoir un processus de nomination démocratique et juste permettant à tous les membres de participer. «Nous appelons tous les membres qui pensent satisfaire aux critères à se présenter en tant que candidat à manifester leur intérêt par le biais d'une lettre adressée à notre conseil exécutif. Ce processus est ouvert et transparent et signifie que tous les membres ont une chance égale de postuler pour le poste de candidat du parti », a déclaré M. Mancienne. À ce jour, seul le chef de l’opposition Wavel Ramkalawan a annoncé son intention de se porter candidat. Il était également candidat à la présidentielle pour le Parti national des Seychelles en 2015 lorsqu'il s'est classé deuxième lors d'un vote extrêmement serré remporté par l'ancien président James Michel, qui a par la suite démissionné. C'est la première fois que la coalition d'opposition lance ce processus. Lors de la dernière élection présidentielle de 2015, les partis étaient des entités distinctes.  Lors d’une réunion des militants au Centre international de conférences de Victoria à Victoria, le chef du parti, Roger Mancienne, a déclaré que le parti souhaitait avoir un processus de nomination démocratique et juste permettant à tous les membres de participer   (Thomas Meriton) Photo License: CC-BY        Au mois de juin dernier, United Seychelles - le parti au pouvoir - a lancé le processus de sélection d'un candidat et invité tous les membres du parti intéressés à présenter une déclaration d'intérêt. La semaine dernière, le parti a annoncé son candidat: Danny Faure, l'actuel président de la nation insulaire. La coalition d'opposition LDS est composée de trois principaux partis d'opposition, le Parti national des Seychelles (SNP), le Parti des Seychelles pour la justice sociale et la démocratie (SPSD) et le Parti unifié des Seychelles. Un quatrième parti d'opposition, Lalyans Seselwa, a quitté la coalition en 2018. LDS détient la majorité au parlement du pays. Outre leurs données personnelles, la lettre doit comporter un énoncé de qualités et d’expérience justifiant leur candidature et leur capacité à servir de président. Il devrait également avoir la vision du candidat pour LDS, pour le gouvernement ainsi que 20 signatures des membres du parti comme appui pour leur nomination. Les candidats sont également invités à divulguer toute information susceptible de nuire à leur candidature. M. Mancienne a déclaré que le conseil étudierait et examinerait toutes les candidatures le 5 septembre et que s’il n’y avait qu’un candidat, le nom de la personne serait alors présenté à la convention du parti. «S'il y a plus d'un candidat lors de notre congrès du 15 septembre, tous les candidats auront l'occasion de s'exprimer devant le public pour expliquer pourquoi ils sont le meilleur candidat pour représenter le parti. Ensuite, nous aurons une deuxième réunion le 20 octobre, où nous aurons un vote final », a déclaré M. Mancienne. Il a ajouté qu'entre ces deux dates, ceux qui auront soumis leur candidature pourront faire campagne et demander l'appui pour ce dernier. Lors de la manifestation de samedi, M. Mancienne a également exhorté les chefs de parti et les militants à rester concentrés sur leur tâche, à savoir former le prochain gouvernement de la nation insulaire. «Au cours de cette courte période au sein de l'Assemblée nationale où nous détenons la majorité, nous avons été en mesure d'apporter certains changements en faisant pression pour plus de vérité, de transparence, de responsabilité et une gouvernance plus responsable de la part de l'exécutif», a expliqué M. Mancienne. M. Mancienne a également ajouté: «Bien que nous ayons fait quelques progrès, nous ne devons pas faire preuve de trop de retenue dans notre approche et rester sur la voie de notre mission qui est de former le prochain gouvernement." M. Ramkalawan, chef de l’opposition à l’Assemblée nationale, a déclaré que leurs travaux à l’Assemblée nationale avaient été le fer de lance du mouvement démocratique aux Seychelles - un groupe de 115 îles situées dans l’océan Indien occidental, qui permettait à chaque Seychellois de connaître ses droits. «Le travail que nous accomplissons consiste à apporter un changement pour la génération future. Grâce à notre travail au parlement et à travers votre travail auprès de la population, je suis confiant que LDS remportera la prochaine élection présidentielle, mais nous devons travailler dur pour l'obtenir », a déclaré M. Ramkalawan. Linyon Demokratik Seselwa a été formée en 2016 pour contester les élections législatives et a remporté la majorité. C’était la première fois que l’opposition contrôlait le parlement du pays.
