Count Me In to elect P-POD Progress Leaders

"P-POD platform was created as a hub for innovative campaigns that work towards a Dominica  where every child, every family can survive and thrive. We envision a Dominica where every child has a chance to go to attain a solid education preparing them for the real world, a world where women, girls,young boys are protected from violence, and where preventable illnesses aren't holding people back. We have adopted the 17 Global Goals as part of our platform as everyone can contribute to making sure the Global Goals are met in Dominica. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone. Always remember, Progress is everyone's Business

 LIST OF ISSUES

EDUCATION - Moving Dominica to a 21st century curriculum

We believe in a modern day 21st century education curriculum to replace our current 19th century industriliazation era education system. One based on practical real life education with finance education as a necessity. Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.

The world has cut the number of children without an education in half. This progress must extend to the over 50 million still left out. Educated and healthy children will lead their communities out of poverty and build the thriving nations of tomorrow.

HOUSING - Provide affordable housing

We have partnered on two substantial housing and community development projects, bringing affordbale, high quality housing to some of the parishes in Dominica where proper housing is needed most. Make constituencies and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

We seek to enhance economic growth by the promotion of competition, entrepreneurship and innovation.

AGRICULTURE

End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.

We will promote sustainable agriculture with modern technologies and fair distribution systems, in order to at minimum sustain Dominica’s population 

By 2030, double the agricultural productivity and incomes of small-scale food producers, in particular women, indigenous peoples, family farmers, pastoralists and fishers, including through secure and equal access to land, other productive resources and inputs, knowledge, financial services, markets and opportunities for value addition and non-farm employment.

By 2030, ensure sustainable food production systems and implement resilient agricultural practices that increase productivity and production, that help maintain ecosystems, that strengthen capacity for adaptation to climate change, extreme weather, drought, flooding and other disasters and that progressively improve land and soil quality.

By 2020, maintain the genetic diversity of seeds, cultivated plants and farmed and domesticated animals and their related wild species, including through soundly managed and diversified seed and plant banks at the national, regional and international levels, and promote access to and fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the utilization of genetic resources and associated traditional knowledge, as internationally agreed.

 

Correct and prevent trade restrictions and distortions in world agricultural markets, including through the parallel elimination of all forms of agricultural export subsidies and all export measures with equivalent effect, in accordance with the mandate of the Doha Development Round.

Adopt measures to ensure the proper functioning of food commodity markets and their derivatives and facilitate timely access to market information, including on food reserves, in order to help limit extreme food price volatility.

Increase investment, including through enhanced international cooperation, in rural infrastructure, agricultural research and extension services, technology development and plant and livestock gene banks in order to enhance agricultural productive capacity in Dominica

Well-fed people create stable communities, perform better in school and take advantage of the opportunities to end extreme poverty. The world has more than enough food to feed everyone, it’s time to make sure everyone gets enough to thrive.

The Global Goal #2

End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture. Hunger is the leading cause of death in the world. Our planet has provided us with tremendous resources, but unequal access and inefficient handling leaves millions of people malnourished. If we promote sustainable agriculture with modern technologies and fair distribution systems, we can sustain the whole world’s population and make sure that nobody will ever suffer from hunger again.
