As world leaders prepare to negotiate a successor agreement to the Kyoto Protocol in Copenhagen, HelpAge International is calling for the voices of older people in developing countries to be heard in the debate.
Last week clouds gathered over the lowlands, but, according to HelpAge International Ethiopia Country Director Alison Rusinow, the rains have come too late to bring much relief.
The World Health Organisation's groundbreaking new report on women's health is a first major step forward in the debate on older women's health - an issue largely ignored in international development.
With another typhoon is expected to hit the Philippines capital Manila, and a further earthquake under the sea near Indonesia last week, HelpAge and partners are continuing their vital relief work in South East Asia.

HelpAge International and its partners are responding to the natural disasters that have hit South East Asia in the last few days. We are working with local partners to provide relief assistance to those affected.
