The mobile phones that we all use and enjoy, without thinking much about the production process, are full of the mineral coltrane. The number of genocides in the Congo that are related to the recovery of coltrane grow every day. It is a shame worldwide where other ecological tragedies of great magnitude should also be added. Nevertheless, more than thirty businesses, the majority of them Western, continue importing minerals from the Congo, regardless of such tragic politics. Easy equation.
Concerned with the lower and lower and less effective international contribution to development the Spanish United Nations Association, ANUE, organized in Barcelona the course ‘Tools for Development: Improving Aid for Africa’ with the purpose of launching a new model of International Contribution to Development that makes the most of the aid given. Among the speakers were Iwith.org and many of its beneficiaries.
