What about the forgotten 3 billion? 14.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Opinion
On December 12, 2017, French President Emmanuel Macron hosted the "One Planet Summit", expressly aimed at providing French flair and oomph for the Paris Agreement (PA) on climate change. The one-day summit occurred exactly two years to the date after 195 countries pledged to undertake ambitious action that would keep the global average temperature rise "well below 2 degrees Celsius". It was heralded as the ultimate New Year then, and it remains the first truly inclusive, yet completely voluntary, global climate change accord that covers all UN member states - with one notable and singular exception! No matter the US withdrawal, the Parisian effort to highlight global momentum towards the PA, billed "adaptation, mitigation, mobilisation" as the three keywords, promoted by a triumvirate of global co-hosts (albeit all male) - Macron, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and World Bank chief Jim Yong. The summit convened speakers ranging from entrepreneurs and investors to local stakeholders and scientists ...

Jacob Zuma and theft of South Africa 14.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
South Africas ruling African National Congress will meet on December 16 to elect a new party president. It will do so in the throes of a debilitating crisis. A decade of President Jacob Zumas leadership has seen Africas oldest liberation movement become a caricature of corruption and factionalism. The ANCs electoral support is in steep decline. In the 2016 municipal elections it lost control of the capital city Pretoria, as well as South Africas economic powerhouse, Johannesburg. Its historical alliance with the South African Communist Party is all but dead. The Congress of South African Trade Unions, its other partner, is in deep crisis. It is unlikely that the ANC will win the 2019 national and provincial elections outright. At the centre of the partys troubles is a business family, the Guptas. Led by three brothers - Ajay Gupta, Atul Gupta and Rajesh Gupta - the family moved to South Africa in 1993 from Saharanpur, a small, impoverished town in Uttar Pradesh. When the Guptas arrived in South Africa, ...
