Indonesia's fatwa shows religious duty can be a route to sustainable behaviour 24.3.2014 The Guardian -- World Latest
The edict on wildlife trafficking is leading secular organisations to recognise that environmentalism is embedded in most scripture In January, a holy voice rang out across Indonesia's archipelago of lush, tropical forests and teeming mangroves. It came in the form of a fatwa, an Islamic edict, which instructed Muslims to stop the illegal trafficking of wildlife . Believed to be the first fatwa broadly covering ecosystem conservation, it seeks to make people do what the law could not. As the head of the fatwa-issuing council said: "People can escape government regulation, but they cannot escape the word of God." This notion is being recognised more and more by secular organisations such as the World Bank and the United Nations, which partner religious-based environmental sustainability programmes. Will the fatwa work? Perhaps yes, given that other religious decrees have succeeded where secular conservation campaigns have failed. In Zanzibar last year, for example, an Islamic-based ...

UK price rise exposes failure to prepare for food and fuel shocks 3.3.2014 The Guardian -- World Latest
Rising imports of fuel and food prices have eaten into real incomes, putting country at risk of volatile global economy Just as the world becomes more uncertain, Britain has left itself open to the worst the world can throw at it by becoming a net importer of fuel and a bigger importer of food. If governments are supposed to act as risk managers, protecting their populations from a dangerously volatile and unstable world economy, then successive British governments have failed. The UK is not the only major nation struggling to deal with higher global fuel and food prices and limited home grown resources. Japan, having switched off the last of its 52 nuclear power stations last September as the Fukushima situation deteriorated, has been spending much of the wealth it built up over the last 30 years on imports of liquefied natural gas. The latest figures show gas imports hit $69bn (£41m) last year and were the primary reason the country's trade deficit soared to $112bn in 2013 from $67bn in ...

Senegal's firebrand fisheries minister turns his ire on foreign factory ships 26.2.2014 The Guardian -- World Latest
Activist turned politician Haïdar el Ali derides countries that deplete stocks of local food staples and then donate aid Donor countries are acting at cross purposes by tolerating, and in some cases registering, giant trawlers whose fishing techniques undermine west African food security, according to Senegal's fisheries minister. "The giant ships, like the Kiyevska Rus that we are currently pursuing for illegal fishing, trawl small pelagic fish and grind it into animal feed," Haïdar el Ali said. "Small pelagics [fish that swim near the surface] are a food staple in the entire Sahel region. In a single day those ships can trawl what an artisanal crew takes in a year. Countries like Russia, Ukraine, Korea but also Spain are depleting one of our staples and at the same time some of them are giving us aid. It does not make sense." The loquacious activist turned minister has just been greeted like a pop star in the bustling fishing port of Mbour, south of the capital, Dakar. He turned his ...

Zulu false dawn: Shembe faithful swap leopardskin for faux fur 19.2.2014 The Guardian -- World Latest
Big cat pelts have always been central to worship in the South African church. But now it has endorsed fabrics made in China Carrying Zulu warrior shields and draped in leopardskin, the men of South Africa's Shembe church move hypnotically as they go through the steps of a traditional religious ritual. But the spotted pelts around the dancers' chests are slowly being swapped for faux fur, under a pact between conservationists and church leaders. Leopards' skins are a symbol of pride and royalty in the Shembe religion, which was founded a century ago in the eastern KwaZulu-Natal region and has roots in Christianity and Zulu customs. However, with the big cat populations threatened by loss of habitat and poaching, Shembe leaders have backed a cheaper and more predator-friendly alternative that still upholds tradition. "The leopardskin has got a significance because it shows power," said Lizwi Ncwane, spokesman for the church officially known as the Nazareth Baptist church. "For the ...
