UNEP: Complex link between conflict and climate change
Research into the effect of climate change on conflict is relatively new, but it already shows the subject is complex. "While the debate on this topic started in 2006-2007, there remains a large gulf between what is discussed at the global level and in the Security Council, and what is actually happening at the field level," says David Jensen, who leads the Environmental Cooperation for Peacebuilding program for the United Nations Environment Programme.

UNRWA "adamant" about Gaza neutrality
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency is "adamant about maintaining our neutrality" in Gaza, says Chris Gunness, a UNRWA spokesman. "Most humanitarian organizations would have withdrawn long ago, but given the overwhelming humanitarian imperative, we will stay and fulfill our mandated work," he added. Separately, the General Assembly will hear from UN officials on the conflict. The Guardian (London) (8/4), The Associated Press (8/4)

Innovation and ideas are the keys to moving Africa toward success, writes Kingsley Chiedu Moghalu, deputy governor of Nigeria's central bank.
