Madagascar is an island nation where the people are extremely poor and children are the most deprived lot, mostly living in the streets.

The role of judges is very important in protection of children's rights but judgment of ICJ is not properly enforced. Role of justice is also very important for any economic activity. More investment means a good life.

he only demand of children is that they be allowed to survive in this world.

There is a dire need of World Parliament and Global Governance. Decisions of the International Court of Justice must be binding on all the nations of the world.

Environment is very much a living issue. It involves environment of mountains, desert, sea and ocean.
