Pak economic growth expected to hit 3.3 pc, well below target of 6.3 pc: Survey 9.6.2019
Islamabad: Pakistan's economic growth in the financial year ending in June is expected to hit 3.3 per cent, well below the target of 6.3 per cent, as the government failed to meet targets in nearly all sectors, according to the Economic Survey. The details of the Economic Survey of 2018-19, scheduled to be officially released a day before the next year's budget on June 11, were published by Dawn on Sunday. The survey indicates that livestock is the only sector whose growth went slightly above the official target while all other sectors performed below expectation, the report said. A sharp decline was witnessed in the industrial sector that registered a growth of 1.4 per cent against the target of 7.6 per cent despite the fact that power generation witnessed an increase as several power plants and other power sector projects were completed. Also, the manufacturing sector slid by 0.3 per cent and the large scale manufacturing (LSM) showed a negative growth of 2 per cent against the target 8.1 per ...

What saved India from the devastating effects of cyclone Fani 6.6.2019
Mangroves are incredibly productive coastal ecosystems found in the tropics and subtropics. These dense green forests are known for their bizarre-looking roots that poke up into the air from shallow water. Among the meshed webs of roots are fish nurseries, enabling humans to make a living from the marine life in and around the mangroves. Mangroves also play another important role for humans, protecting communities from major storms. Climate change is more than rising temperatures, and the increased frequency and intensity of cyclones, hurricanes and typhoons are apparent. Cyclone Fani for example, which recently struck the Bay of Bengal, was one of the strongest to devastate India in the past 20 years. Mangrove roots can break up the force of a storm surge, soaking up some of its energy and protecting people living on coasts from cyclone damage. Yet it is a challenge to effectively value and protect individual mangrove ecosystems. And we just don"t have the people or funds to deliver detailed ...

Why 4% agri growth is a challenge 20.8.2018 DNA: Top News
After two successive droughts in 2014 and 2015 and devastating floods in parts of India this year, the government has woken up to farm distress and recently announced some steps to alleviate the suffering of farmers, although pundits feel they are very little and too late. The government has promised to give top priority to agriculture and provide a higher minimum support price (MSP) to several crops. Besides, the government is also looking at forming a new agri export policy. However, farmers appear to be not satisfied with these announcements as farm distress has worsened during the last four-and-a-half years. Chief adviser to the consortium of Indian Farmers' Association P Chengal Reddy said the MSP announced by the government is too little and too late. The cost plus 50% recommended by the Swaminathan Committee should have been implemented in 2014. It has not happened even now. He, however, felt the recent heavy rains will not severely impact farm output this year but would help in overcoming ...
