Welcome and happy World Biodiversity Day!
Recently travelled to Karakalpakstan for a field trip to Ustyurt – Sudochi in the middle of the desert, which is a true miracle of biodiversity with many species of birds. However it was heartbreaking to see the dying Aral Sea. Difference was Planets Earth and Mars.

Much of the world is accelerating progress in responding to HIV. There are significant decreases in new infections and deaths, and we are making good progress in realising our target of ensuring 15 million people have access to antiretroviral treatment by 2015. This is crucial to halting and reversing the AIDS epidemic for good.http://www.uz.undp.org/content/uzbekistan/en/home/presscenter/speeches/2013/12/03/the-secretary-general-message-on-world-aids-day2014-04-22T04:41:51.363Z2014-04-22T04:41:51.363ZStefan Priesner: Opening Speech on the Presentation of the E-Justice (E-Court) System in the Zangiata Inter-District Civil Court email@example.comHonorable Chairperson of the Supreme Court of Uzbekistan, Mr. Buritosh Mustafaev, Honorable Chief Justice of the Federal Court in Malaysia, Mr. Arifin Bin Zakaria, Distinguished organisers and participants of this international seminar,http://www.uz.undp.org/content/uzbekistan/en/home/presscenter/speeches/2013/09/17/opening-speech-on-the-presentation-of-the-e-justice-e-court-system-in-the-zangiata-inter-district-civil-court-2014-04-22T04:34:29.007Z2014-04-22T04:34:29.007Z
