This week’s quiz: On 2 July, I asked you a question about the Group of 7 (G7) who met in Germany earlier that week. Attended by the heads of state of its members Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK, and the US – as well as Ursula von der Leyen for the European Union - a proposed initiative from their last meeting came back to the table. Called the Partnership for Global Infrastructure and Investment, or the PPII, the seven want to fund infrastructure projects in middle and low-income countries, to counterbalance China’s infrastructure projects in these same countries, known as “Belt and Road”.   In our article, “G7 aims to raise $600 billion to counter China's Belt and Road”, we gave you a few examples of the projects the PPII plan to take on. I asked you to send me the names of the five examples of PPII projects we wrote about. The answer is: “Flagship projects include a $2 billion solar farm project in Angola, a vaccine manufacturing facility at the Institut Pasteur de Dakar in Senegal, and a 1069-kilometre submarine telecommunications cable connecting Singapore to France via Egypt and the Horn of Africa. $320 million has been earmarked for hospital construction in Cote d'Ivoire, and $40 million for Southeast Asia’s Smart Power Program to decarbonise and strengthen their power system.” In addition to the quiz question, there was the Bonus Question: “Where is your safest place in the world?” The winners are: A. K. M. Nuruzzaman, the president of the RFI Amour Fan Club in Rajshahi, Bangladesh. A. K. M. Nuruzzaman is also the winner of the Bonus Question – the village where he was born is his safest place. The other winners this week are RFI Listeners Club members Timothy Ofori from Kumasi, Ghana; Atikul Islam from Kishoreganj, Bangladesh – Atikul is also the president of the Narshunda Radio Listeners Family - and Rachid Dahmani from M'sila, Algeria.

This week’s quiz: On 28 May, the Cannes Film Festival was in full swing, and RFI English journalist Ollia Horton was there, sending daily postcards to keep us all up-to-date on the screenings she had seen.  In her third postcard, called “Give peace a chance”, she wrote about a documentary called For the Sake of Peace. I asked you to tell me the names of the two protagonists in the documentary, as well as a brief recount of what they are doing, and where. The answer is: Gatjang and Nandege. They are both peace brokers in South Sudan. Gatjang is a referee in a refugee camp in Juba and uses sports to bring a culture of peace to youths from adverse tribes. Nandege, a young mother, becomes a successful mediator, against all odds.  The film was produced by the Whitaker Peace and Development Initiative – the WPDI – which was founded by the American actor Forest Whitaker. Whitaker won Best Actor at Cannes in 1988 for his portrayal of Charlie Parker in Clint Eastwood’s Bird.  Whitaker founded the WPDI 10 years ago in Mexico, Uganda, and South Africa, to film portraits of young peacemakers who had been trained by his organisation. The foundation is now present in eight countries.  For the Sake of Peace was awarded the honorary Palme d’Or at Cannes this year. The documentary was directed by Christophe Castagne and Thomas Sametin and was produced by WPDI.  In addition to the quiz question, there was the Bonus Question, too: I asked you to share with us what makes you feel better on your lowest day. The winners are: RFI Club member Atish Bhattacharya from West Bengal, India. Atish had the correct answer to the quiz and is also this week’s Bonus Question winner. Atish Bhattacharya noted that gardening makes him feel better when he feels blue. This is what he wrote: “When I am down and in the blues, I choose to spend time in my garden and take care of my plants. At the same time, I play music on my mobile phone. Sometimes it makes me believe that plants also love music. There are many plants in my garden, flowering plants, vegetable and fruit plants, cactus, succulents, and my favourite: my bonsai plants. They need a lot of care and love. Their happiness makes me glad and I feel better. And the happiness becomes doubled, tripled when my little daughter joins me and waters the plants with full enthusiasm. That's it. That's happiness.” The other winners this week are all RFI Listeners Club winners, and two are from Bangladesh: there’s Khadija Aktar Najnin from Dhaka and Mohammad Mustansar Billah from Sunamagan. Hailing from Goa India, there’s Zenon Teles for the Christian - Marxist- Leninist-Maoist Association of Listening DX-ers, and last but not least, Timothy Ofori from Kumasi, Ghana. Congratulations winners! Here’s the music you heard on this week’s program: “My Direction” by Nabil Khaldi, performed by Oud Caravan; “Rasayil” by Ibrahim Al Kashif and Al Lahn Al Khalid, sung by Ibrahim Al Kashif; “The Flight of the Bumblebee” by Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov; “Tour’s End” by Stan Getz, played by Stan Getz and the Oscar Peterson Trio, and “Final” by George Duke, performed by the George Duke Trio with guitarist Takeshi Akimoto.

This week’s quiz: RFI English journalist Laura Angela Bagnetto was in Côte d’Ivoire in May, at the United Nations’ 15th “Conference of the Parties”. The theme for the conference was “Land. Life. Legacy: From scarcity to prosperity”, and is, as the UN wrote, “a call to action to ensure land, the lifeline on this planet, continues to benefit present and future generations.”  ​ In Laura Angela’s article, “COP15: Securing land rights is crucial to land restoration in Africa”, she talks about a pan-African pastoralist movement that’s being created by the Rangelands Initiative Africa. All examples show, as Laura Angela points out, that when the community is involved – in this case, the pastoralists – they themselves will achieve what is needed. This new grassroots group of pastoralists planned to meet again in late May, to agree on the way forward, and on 21 May, I asked you to tell me where that meeting would take place. The answer is: In Jordan, at the International Land Coalition (ILC) forum. The ILC is a global alliance of civil society and farmers' organizations, NGOs, and United Nations agencies. The winners are: Sharifun Islam Nitu from the RFI Amour Fan Club in Rajshahi, Bangladesh, and RFI Listener Club members Father Stephen Wara from Bamenda, Cameroon; Razia Hosen Iti from Netrokona, Bangladesh; Rachid Dahmani from M’sila, Algeria, and Hans Verner Lollike from Hedehusene in Denmark, who included this thoughtful comment with his quiz entry: “God has created enough for everyone’s needs, but not enough for everyone's greed!” Congratulations winners! Here’s the music you heard on this week’s program: “Take the A Train” by Billy Strayhorn and Duke Ellington, performed by Duke Ellington and his orchestra; Traditional Fulani music for flutes, performed by Bailo Bah and Sylvain Leroux; “The Flight of the Bumblebee” by Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov, and the Clarinet Concerto by Aaron Copland, performed by Richard Stoltzman with the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas. Do you have a musical request? Send it to [email protected] This week’s question ... You have to listen to the show to participate. After you’ve listened to the show, refer to Ollia’s article “Gastronomy gong given to Fulani chef supporting women in West Africa” to help you with the answer. You have until 22 August to enter this week's quiz; the winners will be announced on the 27 August podcast.
