In a major initiative, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti announced that the government will invest in the development of Pulwama — the South Kashmir district synonymous with terrorism and encounters.

During the camp, Mufti heard people in a face-to-face interaction and in many cases issued on the spot directions for the immediate settlement of their problems, an official spokesman said. Militancy notwithstanding, massive roads and bridge networks, mega hospitals, cream of the crop schools, state of art fruit markets, jumbo irrigation and potable water projects are lined up to give a fillip to the development of this militancy-hit district of south Kashmir.

Food security: inclusive growth, social protection key 14.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
The global food sector is undergoing paradigm shifts from production details to nutritional quality control, food storage, delivery, resource mobilisation, etc. It is encouraging to note that several (developing) nations have already invested heavily in devising or implementing agricultural research and extension programmes that range from modernising irrigation infrastructure to sustainable land-water management designs, upgrading food quality standards, etc. A major boost in the production chain could be to now find advanced methods to intensify rain-fed agriculture that accounts for over 80% of global cultivable lands, supporting over 40% of the world's population.
