The report notes that the number of people in need of one or more assistive products is likely to rise to 3.5 billion by 2050, due to populations ageing and the prevalence of noncommunicable diseases rising across the world
More than 2.5 billion people - or 1 in 3 people - need one or more assistive products, such as wheelchairs, hearing aids, or apps that support communication and cognition: New WHO & @UNICEF report bit.ly/3Ngnf54

Almost one billion children & adults with disabilities and older persons in need of assistive technology are denied access, particularly in low- & middle-income countries, where access can be as low as 3% of the need for these life-changing products bit.ly/3Ngnf54

Brilliant, thanks 1NewsNZ team! Have checked & all the video clips in this article feature open captions. When I was checking before, I was looking to turn closed captions on & not seeing any options. Looking forward to captions being offered on all the videos on your site 😊

Good news for pedestrians in #ERP Emissions Reduction Plan, says Living Streets Aotearoa aka @NZLivingStreets. They want NZ Gov't to act faster to deliver safe, low-carbon #ActiveTransport infrastructure for wellbeing of families & communities. scoop.co.nz/stories/AK2205/S…

WWF-NZ is happy nature-based solutions are in #ERP Emissions Reductions Plan but where's discussion of ocean in ERP? It's noted but little about role of ocean in mitigation & adaptation efforts as carbon sink, as well as its threats. HT @WWFNewZealand scoop.co.nz/stories/AK2205/S…

NZEI Te Riu Roa supports #ERP but bolder action needed. They note plan avoids mention of phasing out ~900 diesel, oil & gas-fired boilers still in schools. NZ Govt has announced coal-fired boilers will be phased out by 2025. What of rest? @CoalAction scoop.co.nz/stories/AK2205/S…

Investing in nature isn’t just a nice to have – it's a positive investment that delivers economic, environmental and social returns for our country, communities, and individuals. Nature will protect us, but first we need to protect nature. 2/2
We've pushed hard for the Emissions Reduction Plan to cut emissions AND protect nature. The ERP is a high-stakes chance to finally get the nature/economy right. The environment isn't a 'nice to have'. It's the basis for everything else. 1/2 #TwinCrises #ERP #NZpol

"Climate+biodiversity are two sides of the same coin" the Climate Minister said today - so we're pleased the ERP is founded on this principle. BUT - the next step must be ACTION. Forest & Bird's statement here: forestandbird.org.nz/resourc… #TwinCrises #ERP
