Another US blow to multilateralism 15.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Opinion
The US and India, at the helm of the developed nation and developing nation blocs, respectively, have been engaged in a fight at the World Trade Organisation (WTO) over the issue of trade-distorting agricultural subsidies that has culminated in a collapse of talks at the recently concluded 15th ministerial conference in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The negotiations were on the subject of developing countries' food procurement subsidies that are capped at 10% of the total value of agricultural production based on 1986-88 prices. The developing countries argued that the base year prices are 30 years old and need to be revised in order to meet their countries' food security needs, particularly with India adopting the Right to Food Act, 2013, that increased the level of government support for food procurement activities substantially. Indeed, recent reports, particularly as characterised by Washington, suggest that India exceeds its 10% cap substantially and will continue to do so. Food Corporation of India ...

Modi hopes for productive Winter Session of Parliament 15.12.2017 Deccan Herald - National
After an acrimonious election campaign, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday expressed his hope for a productive Winter Session of Parliament that would witness constructive debates and innovative solutions for taking development agenda forward. In brief remarks to the media before the session commenced on Friday, Modi also made a mention of the delayed onset of winter, which he said could be because of global warming and climate change. The prime minister appeared to downplay the controversy over the delayed Winter Session. "The onset of winter happens around Diwali. But the impact of global warming and climate change is such that even now we cannot experience cold weather as is expected. However, our Winter Session is beginning," Modi said. "I am confident that the Winter Session, that is beginning in 2017 and continuing in 2018, will be a productive session. I hope there is good debate, constructive debate and we come up with innovative solutions to our nations problems." The prime minister said ...

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 ...
