Canada Schulze visits Development projects in the Nildelta
Shortage of children's pain relievers is crowding the ER — but there are solutions, doctors say
With the cold and flu season in full swing in many parts of Canada — and new COVID variants arising worldwide — supplies of pain medications containing acetaminophen and ibuprofen remain short on pharmacy shelves and parents are looking for options. So parents are tuning to the ER."It's absolutely devastating to see your child is going through pain and you're completely helpless," the Pickering, Ont., father of two said.
Federal Development Minister Svenja Schulze (SPD) before her participation in the climate advice in Schahar El-Scheich visited projects in the Egyptian Nildelta. Important topics are the areas of water management and coastal protection, as the Ministry of Development (BMZ) announced. From Monday, Schulze will take part in the UN Climate Conference in Sharm EL-Sheikh.
The projects are about adapting to the consequences of global warming. "In Egypt you can see how dramatic climate change works. One of the most fertile, most densely populated regions in the world, the Nildelta, is threatened by water shortages, rising sea level and salt," said Schulze in advance. It is about "specifically about whether millions of people in this region will still find food and living space," warned the minister.
The perfect food for autumn
The Greens in the Bavarian state parliament demand a better system to recognize mental illnesses early. Those affected would have to be protected and their relatives are involved, the parliamentary group said in Munich. Mental illnesses were one of the most common causes of sick leave and affairs increasingly young people. In pandemic, the numbers have increased significantly again.
must be the first answer to the threat "a quick worldwide exit from coal, oil and gas and consistent protection of our nature", emphasized Schulze. At the same time, however, one has to "commit yourself together to adapt to the climate changes and to deal with the climate damage that can no longer be prevented".
In the Nildelta, Schulze attends an international coastal protection project that is intended to better protect the region from flooding. According to the BMZ, another project co -financed with German development funds contributes to making irrigation of the fields more efficient and reducing water losses.
In addition, Schulze wants to find out more about two Egyptian social transfer programs. These therefore reach more than ten million people, most of them women.

Central topic Schulzes As part of the climate conference in Scharm EL-Scheich, the construction of a global protective shield ("Global Shield") is. As a kind of international insurance, this is intended to secure people in particularly vulnerable states against damage caused by climate change.
The protective shield should be "part of the answer" on the problem of climate damage and losses, which is discussed for the first time at the UN Conference as a central negotiating strand by the global community. Developing countries had been in vain for this for years. In relation to the protective shield, however, there is criticism that this is not sufficient to secure climate damage sufficiently.
