The first training session for 60 people in Abéché will last four weeks and seeks to make up for the lack of professional magistrates in the field of community justice in eastern Chad, where 256,700 Sudanese refugees from the Darfur conflict, 168,000 Chadian IDPs and around 150,000 people in host villages live in close proximity.Overall the scheme, run by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and the UN Mission in Chad and the Central African Republic (MINURCAT), aims to train 148 local officials.At the beginning of the month, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) warned that increased banditry, kidnappings of relief workers and attacks on humanitarian compounds in the region were threatening crucial aid for nearly 100,000 people.Ethnic tensions and humanitarian needs in eastern Chad have been exacerbated by the nearly seven-year war in neighbouring Darfur pitting the Sudanese Government and its militia allies against rebels seeking greater autonomy. 10 December 2009The United Nations has started a programme to train local judges in eastern Chad in a bid to end impunity in a strife-torn region where conflicts have erupted between refugees, internally displaced persons (IDPs) and host communities.

Boeing predicts a need for 43,560 airplanes worldwide by 2034, double the existing fleet FILE – In this Jan. 17, 2013 file photo, a line of 787 jets are parked nose-to-tail at Paine Field in Everett, Wash. In the next 20 years, global airlines will need 38,050 new airplanes, jet manufacturer Boeing said in its annual market forecast Thursday, June 11, 2015. That’s up 3.5 percent from last year’s projection.

That’s up 3.5 per cent from last year’s projection.In order to fill that demand, Boeing, its rival Airbus and smaller manufacturers like Embraer and Bombardier will have to build more than five new planes a day, every day for the next two decades.These new planes will help to double the number of aircraft worldwide from 21,600 to 43,560 in 2034. Fifty-eight per cent of the 38,050 airplanes delivered over that time will be to accommodate growth. Boeing estimates that the number of passengers will grow by 4.9 per cent each year. The rest of the new planes will replace existing aircraft.Nearly two out of every five new planes will head to Asia.The current jet buying spree has been driven by cheap credit and relatively high fuel prices, making the economics work for purchasing new, fuel-efficient planes. But as fuel prices have fallen and interest rates are expected to climb, some aviation experts have warned that airlines might continue to fly older jets rather than buy expensive new ones.Boeing says it isn’t seeing that.“The commercial airplane market continues to be strong and resilient,” Randy Tinseth, vice-president of marketing for Boeing’s commercial airplane division said in statement. “As we look forward, we expect the market to continue to grow and the demand for new aircraft to be robust.”__Scott Mayerowitz can be reached at http://twitter.com/GlobeTrotScott
