Interview With Brig. Gen. Jamil Megid, Coordinator General For The 5th Military World Games

first_img The Military Games were great. All initiatives and activities to improve the citizen’s life are praiseworthy. Congratulations to everyone involved in the Games: organizers, athletes, publicity, etc. The legacy will certainly be a positive one for Brazil and for the Armed Forces. Bravo, ADSUMUS. Cynthia. There’s no doubt such a great event brings us cultural, social and economic enrichment; the armed forces together with the Brazilian government deserve congratulations. This step was simply the first of many other achievements by the Brazilian nation. Hosting military members from many countries in some way generates in us, both adults and children, a desire to accomplish much more! It’s been four months now since the military world games, it was beautiful, but me and the other 400 drivers who made the event happen were not paid for it. Imagine the World Cup and Olympics, I’m out with the others. If I’m not getting paid I’d rather stay home. By Dialogo July 27, 2011 It has taken more than 1,000 days of work, with 16-hour days in recent weeks. But Brig. Gen. Jamil Megid Junior, Coordinator General of the Operational Planning Committee for the 5th Military World Games – Rio 2011, does not expect things to let up anytime soon. Even after all of the delegations go home, on July 27, his mission will still not be accomplished. Instead, it marks the beginning of the demobilization phase, followed by the preparation of reports and the rendering of accounts. “There will be more work, but it will be a lot calmer,” Gen. Megid explained. On the eve of the Rio 2011 closing ceremonies, Gen. Megid offered some of his time, which is in high demand, to speak with Diálogo. But the interview took place on the go, keeping pace with the considerable task of managing a workforce of 25,735 people. The rain falling in Rio de Janeiro on the morning of July 23 brought Gen. Megid back to the field. He insisted on personally checking up on the grounds where the equestrian competition would be held, in order to insure that they were safe enough to avoid putting the competitors at risk. Between questions and answers, the attentive eye of the tireless man behind the 5th Military Games did not let any opportunity for improvement go unnoticed. Diálogo: Brazil invested R$1.4 billion (US$900 million) in order to carry out the 5th Military World Games. What will be the legacy of this investment? Brig. Gen. Jamil Megid Junior: If we consider the benefits for all of the communities surrounding the bases where some of the competitions were held, the legacy is the sports facilities, with the new infrastructure and the renovations that we carried out. And there is also the experience of preparing the athletes and organizing competitions. The International Military Sports Council (CISM) has a technical committee that came to Brazil to accompany our preparation and execution of the Games. All of the committee members, many of whom have worked with CISM for years and have seen a variety of World Championship and Olympic competitions, were unanimous in saying that the organization of the competition, the location and the officiating were the best that they had seen. This represents major gains for the preparation of Brazilian teams and the carrying out of high-performance competitions. Diálogo: So the 5th Military World Games left Rio de Janeiro more prepared to host the Olympics in 2016? Brig. Gen. Jamil Megid Junior: The planning nucleus for this edition of the Games was a military team that developed all of the projects, but the preparation and, primarily, the execution of these competitions were carried out in cooperation with military teams for different sports, federations and civilian businesses. So, everyone is learning through this experience, both from the military and the civilian perspective. Everybody wins. There was this integration and, without a doubt, this knowledge can be applied to other events, including the Olympic Games. It’s important to note that this experience wasn’t just restricted to the military. Diálogo: Did this event bring the Armed Forces closer to the population? Brig. Gen. Jamil Megid Junior: It wasn’t just the families living near the bases that knew about the Games. We got everyone talking about them. When we make tickets available on the Internet, to civilians and military personnel, we saw a considerable civilian turnout. And that’s a real source of satisfaction, because the Games are for society as a whole. That was the aim: to promote this integration and the understanding of military sports by the civilian public. Without a doubt, this is going to bring benefits in the future. Many of the children attending the events will want to join the military in order to be athletes, in order to practice the sport that they saw, such as the pentathlons, which got a lot of attention from the kids. It’s the type of benefit that you might not feel today, but that will have positive repercussions in the future. Diálogo: Do you feel that the objectives that led Brazil to launch its candidacy to host this event, just over four years ago, have been achieved? Brig. Gen. Jamil Megid Junior: The primary objectives were fully achieved. In keeping with the idea put forth by the CISM in previous editions, the aim was to raise awareness about military sports and further promote sports in Brazil. We had 111 participating nations. Many countries came with large delegations and strong athletes. The level of competition was high and we carried out a series of improvements on the sports facilities of the Brazilian Armed Forces, which will also serve the Olympic confederations. In addition, we developed a very strong partnership with the Brazilian Olympic Committee for the preparation of Olympic athletes from the military, who will go on to compete with the Brazilian national teams. Looking towards the future, it’s clear that by allowing our troops to train in more appropriate areas, with state-of-the-art sports equipment, we’re going to improve the fitness of our soldiers and their effectiveness in combat. Therefore, it was completely worth the effort. Diálogo: Some of the spectators said that there wasn’t enough public awareness about the Games. Do you agree? Brig. Gen. Jamil Megid Junior: In order to promote an event such as this one, the public usually has to have some form of prior knowledge, which they didn’t, or you can carry out a wide-ranging promotional campaign, which would have exceeded our budget. So, we did a mix of spontaneous media with an advertising campaign over the last three months in mainstream media outlets. And we reached our goal, since almost 90% of the tickets that we made available over the Internet were reserved by the civilian population. It was even more than we expected. Diálogo: Did the foreign coverage of the event meet the CISM’s expectations? Brig. Gen. Jamil Megid Junior: We produced a daily 15-minute bulletin that was available by satellite, and we were able to get TV stations from 120 countries to make use of that material. But the ideal situation would be a live broadcast of the Games in each country. That’s the objective that we hope to reach in the coming editions. last_img read more

Colombia: A Naval School for the World

first_imgBy Marian Romero/Diálogo September 15, 2016 The fight against drug trafficking in Colombia has allowed the country to perfect techniques and strategies associated with maritime interdiction. For the past 15 years, the country has made a huge effort to capture vessels involved in drug trafficking. As a result, it has strengthened its specialized vigilance along its land, sea, and air borders. Because transnational crimes are commonly carried out by sea, the Colombian Navy has developed a broad range of knowledge about the efficient handling of equipment and personnel engaged in interdicting vessels involved in illegal activities. Thanks to this experience, Colombia has become an international benchmark for these skills. Based on this recognition, the decision was made to share Colombia’s knowledge with the rest of the world through the International Coast Guard School and the Marine Corps Training Base. “Drug trafficking is a transnational crime that requires the attention of all countries that can be transited by an illegal vessel. It’s a complex situation that has continued over the years due to [drug trafficking’s] very high profitability and its capacity to shift and migrate to zones that are less prepared for it. In these circumstances, linking countries directly together to fight against drug trafficking has become an urgent necessity,” said Colombian Navy Rear Admiral John Carlos Flores, the Coast Guard commander. To combat the so-called balloon effect, Colombia has set up two training schools that specialize in maritime interdiction for all of the Americas and the world. With support from the U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM), Colombia is betting it can curb the illegal transit of ocean shipments by promoting joint operations and the unification of doctrine via its training of the world’s armed forces. International Coast Guard School The building housing the International Coast Guard School was inaugurated in July 2015 in the city of Cartagena. However, the school has offered international courses on such topics as planning and executing maritime interdiction operations, search and rescue, and the fight against drug and human trafficking since 2009. All of this was framed by the policies of the Colombian Navy’s leadership, which were aimed at bolstering the security of the region by unifying doctrine under the strict application of protection laws for life at sea. The school is under the direction of the Coast Guard Command of the Colombian Navy, whose mandate is to guarantee maritime safety by curbing crime at sea, preserving the marine environment, and undertaking search and rescue operations. The school was built with support from the U.S. Southern Command. About 300 commissioned and non-commissioned officers from more than 20 countries in Europe, Africa, and North, Central, and South America have been trained there. The international courses, which are taught in Spanish and English, develop skills and theoretical and practical competence in areas such as leadership, operational procedures, the piloting of small craft, site exploration, and defensive and survival techniques. All courses include the use of cutting-edge technology and ocean operations simulators. “The school is designed to be a space for the exchange of knowledge between participants. Even though Colombia has the most experience, sharing all countries’ best practices bolsters everyone’s level of understanding. Our doors are always open to learning successful tactics because the school’s aim is to generate regional unity, which is achieved through dialogue between the parties,” said Rear Adm. Flores. One of the school’s unusual aspects is the training it provides in dealing with anti-drug trafficking legislation in the hemisphere. “Each nation’s laws against transnational crime are different, and criminals take advantage of the gaps to engage in their illicit activities. The specialized courses that are offered teach this material in order to come up with the best interdiction strategy on a case-by-case basis,” said Rear Adm. Flores. Colombia is not relying solely on specialized training to help eradicate the problem of drug running on the high seas; it also is wagering that the officials from different countries who come together will earn each other’s trust and establish friendly ties, allowing for more fluid and effective communication in the field. “I believe the bonds of friendship that form between the students are one of the school’s greatest benefits. Meeting in person generates closeness and allows officials to set aside protocols that previously delayed the conducting of operations. In the school, we promote teamwork and the removal of borders, while respecting each country’s sovereignty, so that we all can take care of our oceans together,” said Rear Adm. Flores. Marine Corps Training Base The Marine Corps Command undertakes operations in the territorial jurisdiction assigned to the Colombian Navy along Colombia’s Caribbean and Pacific coasts, insular territory, and navigable rivers. The Marine Corps has a powerful amphibious force that allows it to exercise control over waterways and land and to efficiently support naval forces when required. Currently, drug trafficking is primarily undertaken in jungle zones with difficult access, forcing the authorities to do intense intelligence-gathering work in order to discover the location of crops and cocaine labs. This is why the Marine Corps Training Base plays a very important role in the hemispheric training project. “Taking into account the transient nature of drug trafficking and Colombia’s vast experience in the fight against this problem, the base began giving courses to neighboring countries in the Pacific Basin to provide them with the same training and skills. Expert officers from the Colombian Navy visit the countries that need to resolve a situation; come up with a viable solution that takes into account the nation’s capabilities and resources; and design an effective strategy that can be implemented in situ,” said Brigadier General Oscar Eduardo Hernández, commander of the Marine Corps. To date, the Marine Corps has trained 800 officers from Costa Rica, Panama Honduras, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, and El Salvador in their own territories on topics and strategies tailored to their specific needs. The courses cover topics ranging from the handling of reinforced polyester and fiberglass (for boat repair), to water combat survival techniques. The Marine Corps also manages the International Amphibious Training Center, which offers courses in: canine infirmary, substance detection canines (narcotics, explosives, and currency), basic explosives and mine deactivation, swimming safety, basic marksmanship, combat, sniper training, non-commissioned Marine Corps officer basic training, martial arts, non-lethal weapons, and the administration of flammable substances and lubricants. The Marine Corps also runs a waterway operations school, which offers courses in waterway operations, river piloting, and river artillery. “During the whole time we’ve given training around the world, we’ve received very good feedback. Speaking the same language and having experience on the same type of territory as the other countries generates closer ties with the Latin American countries that take the courses. Learning is acquired efficiently, and subsequent communication during operations is easier,” said Brig. Gen. Hernández. Since Colombia began training other countries in 2001, it has trained 1,737 students from 14 countries to date in different methods and techniques. The financial backing of the U.S. government, which has the most interest in eradicating drug trafficking activity in the region, has made the training courses possible. The United States began providing all types of training to Colombia in the 1990s, when the drug-trafficking phenomenon reached its highest peaks.last_img read more

PRI: Investors show EU taxonomy applicability and ‘optimising’ needs

first_imgMany investors trialling the EU sustainability taxonomy demonstrated that it was “operational and that taxonomy-alignment results are both useful and necessary”, but challenges remain, according to a report from the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) today.The organisation established a taxonomy practitioners group in September last year and today’s report links to case studies from many of those involved as well as relaying key findings and recommendations, topped up with PRI analysis.PRI said it hoped the output would foster confidence and facilitate implementation of the taxonomy.“The investors assessed taxonomy alignment before many details of the final regulation are in place, and before widespread corporate reporting against the taxonomy is available,” said the PRI. “Many challenges remain, not least the availability of data and potential changes to the detailed taxonomy criteria. “But it’s also clear that to optimise taxonomy applicability, policymakers and regulators need to do more” Will Martindale, director of policy and research at the PRIWill Martindale, director of policy and research at the PRI, said the investors trialling the taxonomy had been “working at the cutting edge of policy design” and demonstrated “real leadership”.“But it’s also clear that to optimise taxonomy applicability, policymakers and regulators need to do more,” he said.Earlier this week the CEO of Swedish pension provider Alecta said he thought the taxonomy would have ”a fundamental impact across the investment chain”.Martindale’s blog and a link to the PRI’s report can be found here.Looking for IPE’s latest magazine? Read the digital edition here. “Nonetheless, the progress made by the group is encouraging. The case studies detailed here demonstrate that the Taxonomy framework can be operationalised, and offer important insights for investors beginning their taxonomy preparation.”Most of the investors (89%) in the taxonomy practitioners group were investment managers, although asset owners such as €21.6bn AP Pension in Denmark and VidaCaixa Group Pension Scheme in Spain also participated.AP Pension tested the taxonomy against a concentrated global equities portfolio and said that it felt the case study “gave us an approximation of what could be taxonomy-aligned” but that it was limited by data availability.Advice for investors, policymakersAccording to the PRI, those in the taxonomy practitioners group saw a need for future corporate disclosure obligations to go beyond the scope of the existing requirement for disclosure against the taxonomy and consider private companies.The PRI also relayed that some investors suggested a role for policymakers to engage data providers to limit discrepancies, agree on common definitions on key terms and standardise the approach to subjective elements, while others suggested that investors should collaborate to achieve the same goals.According to the PRI, the investors also expressed anticipation of a need for significant practical and interpretive guidance for all taxonomy users as well as clear expectations from supervisors.“Supervisors should ensure that investors are able to clearly communicate the limitations of their analysis and the underlying data,” the PRI reported.Another request was for a more structured approach for demonstrating compliance with minimum safeguards and Do No Significant Harm (DNSH) requirements, with PRI noting that the investors found assessing DNSH particularly challenging due to the absence of data and the qualitative nature of many DNSH criteria.The PRI’s report also relays a wide range of advice from the members of the taxonomy practitioner group for other investors, such as “start early”, “start small”, “provide context for results” or “build ‘correspondence tables’ between taxonomy criteria, existing certification schemes and other non-EU standards”.last_img read more
