North-East to get drier in future, study reveals 20.8.2017 DNA: Mumbai
The eastern Himalayan region, source of water for rivers in the northeast, is likely to see a decreased monsoon rainfall over the rest of this century, while the trend is going to be opposite across the western Himalayas, a new climate research study published in Springer journal has revealed. The study has predicted the trend for the period up to 2099. The research used 10 global climate models, sourced from five international climate research institutes, to project rainfall across the Himalayan region. Researchers used a combination of regional climate model and global climate model experiments, which allowed for a sharper resolution and reduced uncertainties. The stretch from Afghanistan in the west to parts of South China in the east was chosen for the research. Rainfall in the Himalayan region between 1970 and 2005 was used as the present-day monsoon dataset, while carbon emissions and varying elevations across the mountain range were among the many factors taken into account. The project made ...

US budget cuts will reduce aid to developing countries by up to 70%; disaster for world's poor: Rockefeller Foundation President Rajiv Shah 17.8.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Aid to help developing countries fight poverty, hunger, disease and climate change is likely to fall 50 to 70 percent under proposed U.S. budget cuts, a "disaster" for the world's poor, the president of The Rockefeller Foundation has warned. Closing the expected gap through private or charitable spending looks unlikely, added Rajiv Shah, who ran the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) from 2009 to 2015. If the 15 largest U.S. foundations, including giants such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, combined their donations, the total would not match the cuts proposed just to USAID funding by President Donald Trump's administration, Shah said. "This is not the kind of problem philanthropy can step in and solve - or should," he said. "These are public-sector responsibilities." But philanthropists can play a key role in restoring badly eroded public faith in aid spending, by tracking results and proving investments work, he said. They can also push money into ventures - such as off-grid solar ...

No silence zones in city since August 10 17.8.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Since August 10, no spot in the city or the state has officially been a silence zone, not even the mandatory area of 100-metre radius around hospitals, educational institutions, courts and religious places. The state government, which is the sole authority to notify such zones, will soon re-notify these areas, but till that happens, they have ceased to be silence zones. An affidavit filed in the Bombay High Court by the state government on Monday states that as per an amendment to the Noise Pollution (Regulation and Control) Amendment Rules, 2017, by the Union Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, unless any area bound by these rules is notified by the ‘state’, it cannot be considered a silence zone. The affidavit goes on to state that since August 10, any area comprising not less than 100 metres around all hospitals, educational institutions or religious places could not constitute a silence zone unless specified.  Moreover, the Union government gazette states that the state government or ...
