Dear all Friends in Peace I greet you all in True Peace & Solidarity. My name is Ali Mussa Mwadini and I am the Founder of our Organization, and currently voluntarily working as Executive Secretary & Peace Activist and Founder of Zanzibar City of Peace Clubs Project. Our Organization Zanzibar Peace, Truth & Transparency Association (ZPTTA NGO), is committed to build a True Culture of peace & peace related issues. True Culture of peace is essential prerequisite, because without peace it will not be possible to achieve the level of trust, cooperation, or inclusiveness necessary to solve these challenges as, violent conflicts, depute and war let alone empower the institution and organization necessary to help address them. We believe, without the appropriate measures and Community understanding of the factors that support peace, it is not possible to know what polices, what project and programs work needed to be implemented to bring Positive Peace in the country. Zanzibar Peace, Truth & Transparency Association is a Non government, non- profit, non political welfare and non- Military, registered in Zanzibar with its headquarters in Zanzibar Town. ZPTTA NGO is working in both two Islands Unguja and Pemba, to respond to the NEEDS of people living in the rural communities and in Town, in True positive Peace & Peace Related issues, Human Rights, Gender Issues and Non violence way of life in Zanzibar Community. Our Organization (ZPTTA NGO) is struggling against the calamities such as Disputes, Violence, Conflicts, Terrorism and Genocide. As our Organization contemplated our work as an educator of True Culture of Peace, Conflict resolution on the Peaceful means Democracy, Interfaith & Gender equality. We are quite aware How do we do this? How do we go beyond trying to just change people's minds, to reaching people's hearts? I have a sense that it lies in personal relationships, reaching across divides, in true dialogue for understanding—often starting with our own families and our neighbors We believe that only through joint action can we break the cycle of violence Our direction is that of nonviolent struggle, and we call on both nations to join us to achieve peace and reconciliation in Zanzibar Community, through Zanzibar City of Peace Clubs Peace does not happen by itself; it requires commitment, perseverance and continuing efforts. LET US UNITE FOR ZANZIBAR CITY OF PEACE & CITY OF PEACE CLUBS TO CHANGE ZANZIBAR COMMUNITY I thank you, Yours in peace ALI MUSSA MWADINI EXECUTIVE SECRETARY, PEACE ACTIVIST & FOUNDER OF ZANZIBAR CITY OF PEACE CLUBS (ZPTTA NGO ZANZIBAR) PHONE:+255-777-451257 ( Passport N0 AB 491794

MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH DISASTER AND RISK MANAGEMENT (SIERRA LEONE CASE) Personally, in my capacity as the Deputy Director of Gender Program working with Girls Rights and Gender Equality I witnessed the deadly Ebola outbreak in the three West African neighboring countries we were hit hard by the Ebola outbreak which began in Guinea in December 2013 before spreading to Liberia and Sierra Leone. The epidemic was declared over by the World Health Organization in 2016 after claiming over 11,300 lives out of nearly 30,000 registered cases. Again, on the morning of August 14, 2017, significant mudflow events occurred in and around our country’s capital Freetown in Sierra Leone. Following three days of torrential rainfall, mass wasting of mud and debris destroyed hundreds of buildings in the city, killing 1,141 people and leaving more than 3,000 homeless. And causal factors for the mudslides include the region's particular topography and climate – with Freetown's elevation close to sea level and its greater position within a tropical monsoon climate. Those factors were assisted by the generally poor state of the region's infrastructure and loss of protective natural drainage systems from periods of deforestation. THE NEED FOR RISKS AND DISASTER ALERTNESS PROGRAMME IN FREETOWN – SIERRA LEONE The potential for deadly flooding in Sierra Leone was exacerbated by a combination of factors. Freetown, which sits at the tip of a peninsula, was in 2015 occupied by approximately 1 million people. Freetown's topography alternates between thickly wooded and partially deforested mountains. These mountains run along the peninsula parallel to the Atlantic for 25 miles. Freetown's elevation varies from coastal areas which are at or just below sea level to approximately 400 meters (1,300 ft) above sea level. Freetown suffers from long-term issues involving poor urban development programs. According to Jamie Hitchen of the Africa Research Institute "the government is failing to provide housing for the poorest in society", and when attention is paid to issues such as unregulated construction, it is received only after a crisis. Because a moratorium on housing construction was not enforced, unorganized settlements and municipal works encroached on flood plains, resulting in narrower water passageways. During floods, Freetown's drainage systems are often blocked by discarded waste, especially in the city's poorer communities, contributing to higher levels of surface runoff. The construction of large homes in hillside areas and unrestricted deforestation for residential purposes weakened the stability of nearby slopes and caused soil erosion. Within a decade leading up to the disaster, Sierra Leone cleared approximately 800,000 hectares of forest cover – the country's civil war, fought between 1991 and 2002, was also a cause of deforestation. The nation's Environmental Protective Agency launched a reforesting mission in the region two weeks prior to the floods and mudslides, which was ultimately unsuccessful.
