Cleanliness Is Everyone’s Responsibility

A famous saying says, “Beauty will save the world.” For our part we may add that cleanliness will make it even more beautiful. This is especially evident not only in small towns, but also in megacities. Here it would be appropriate to say that a modern city is in many ways similar to the human body, and an important factor in making it healthy is therefore hygiene. This means that the cleanliness of the streets and avenues, squares and public gardens, residential areas and manufacturing and industrial districts of our white-marble capital Ashgabat and of other cities and etrap centres of independent Turkmenistan largely depends not only on the timely and high-quality cleaning of them, but also on the quality of atmospheric air, soil and water.

Good Health and Welfare of the People – the Key to the Prosperity of the State

Ensuring healthy lives and promoting the wellbeing of all people at all ages is a critical component of sustainable development. The United Nations finds that addressing numerous new and long-standing health challenges requires much more effort than is currently being undertaken. In Turkmenistan, SDG 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages involves ensuring high-quality health care for all citizens, improving the quality of life and achieving universal wellbeing. The country continues to implement the goals and objectives set for the national health sector in the Saglyk State Programme to form its own model of the public health system, which provides for preventing and treating diseases, improving the quality of medical services, promoting a healthy lifestyle, bolstering physical education, involving in sports, tourism and addressing other issues.

How to Boost Your Child’s Immune System in Autumn

Children are most vulnerable to acute respiratory viral infections (ARVI); their immune system is developing rapidly and has to withstand not only infections, but also the stress that a growing human body undergoes in all periods of development, in particular, during periods of growth or when adapting to a team of peers. Usually, when treating ARVI, parents relieve the symptoms of the disease, and if these symptoms regularly occur, they “sigh and wait” for the child to “outgrow” childhood illnesses. However, the solution is simple – the child’s defence system, that is, child’s immunity needs to be improved. Only about 10 per cent of people have the strong immune system from birth; that of the rest depends on living conditions and lifestyle.

New Flora of Turkmenistan

Scientific methods for studying flora and vegetation began to be applied in the first half of the 19th century. By the end of the century before last, hundreds of famous scientists and naturalists from Russia and Europe visited Turkmenistan in order to search and study of outlandish desert plants and mountain xerophytes. It was during this period that hundreds of thousands of herbarium samples were collected, which served as type material for describing new plant species in the future. Seed and planting material was obtained and was successfully acclimatised, it still adorns the most famous botanical gardens in the world. A lot of research in the field of botany was carried out in the last century, when a number of research institutions were established, and in the current one - in the modern period of independence. Among the achievements is the scientifically confirmed growth within the country of 3,100 species of higher plants (these are ferns, horsetails, gymnosperms or conifers, and flowering plants). Studying the statistics of new species finds over time, it may seem that work in this area is less active than in the past: there is less and less unknown and unexplored. Nevertheless, over the past five years, three species of higher plants have been discovered in Turkmenistan, which I would like to talk about. The history of the discovery of the Calligonum inerme (unarmed k

Achieving Gender Equality – a Key Priority of the Sustainable Development of Turkmenistan

The outcomes of the historic meeting of the Halk Maslahaty, which was held in Ashgabat on September 24, and the nationwide celebration of the 32nd anniversary of the sacred independence of Turkmenistan convincingly evidence that in the period of the Revival of the New Era of the Powerful State, the innovation-driven large-scale modernisation of all spheres of life under the leadership of President Serdar Berdimuhamedov is taking place. Women, who have been taking an active part in the socio-political, socioeconomic, cultural and humanitarian life of our country from the first days of independence, make a great contribution to these historic achievements. In this regard, it is appropriate to quote the President of Turkmenistan, “Today the state provides women with all kinds of benefits and creates conditions conducive to their worthy life and constructive labour, ensuring gender equality at the legislative level, as one of the crucial factors of the sustainable development of society. Our country takes consistent measures to ensure their rights and interests, to support the family and to protect motherhood and childhood.”

Climate Change is a Focal Point for Concerting Efforts

Climate change is a global challenge of the 21st century. Taking urgent actions to combat climate change and its impacts is Goal 13, which the United Nations calls upon all states to achieve. To stop climate change by 2030, Member States decided that each country should develop and implement a national programme to combat climate change; should disseminate knowledge about actions that help combat climate change; and should support the activities of the Green Climate Fund, which was established to support developing countries in achieving an enhancement of their ability to respond to climate change. The main international intergovernmental mechanism for agreeing on global responses to climate change is the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. Turkmenistan is a party to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Climate Agreement that create a unique opportunity to regulate the impact of human activities on the environment and climate through international agreements.
