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 ...

With every 0.55 degree rise in global temperature, US loses 07% GDP: Study 30.6.2017 DNA: Opinion
Unmitigated climate change will cause significant damage to the US economy, making the country poorer and widening income inequalities, a study warns. The study is the first of its kind to price warming using data and evidence accumulated by the research community over decades. From this data, the team estimates that for each 0.55 degree C increase in global temperatures, the US economy loses about 0.7% of Gross Domestic Product, with each degree of warming costing more than the last. The poorest third of counties could sustain economic damage costing as much as 20 per cent of their income if warming proceeds unabated. States in the South and lower Midwest, which tend to be poor and hot already, will lose the most, with economic opportunity travelling northward and westward. Colder and richer counties along the northern border and in the Rockies could benefit the most as health, agriculture and energy costs are projected to improve, according to the study published in the journal Science. Overall, the ...
