Elephant management: a jumbo challenge 22.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Opinion
The population of elephants in the country has declined by nearly 10% in the last five years, as per figures released by the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change (MoEFCC) on World Elephant Day recently. In 2012, when World Elephant Day was launched, the population of elephants was estimated to be around 30,000. In 2017, it is said to be just over 27,000. Although the government claims that the reduction is due to a more scientific count this time, concerns regarding elephant habitats and their population remain. Conversely, human deaths due to encounters with wild elephants have risen across the country. In the last four years, one human life was lost every day due to human-elephant conflict. A total of 1,465 people have been killed in that time. Assam, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Orissa and West Bengal experience varying levels of human-elephant conflict (HEC), in which annually 400 people, mostly agriculturists or farm workers, lose their lives to this phenomenon. Today, the ...

Impacts of glacier mass loss 20.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Tuesday
RAPID SHRINKAGE Researchers have warned of an urgent worldwide need to address a broad spectrum of cascading impacts of glacier mass loss on downstream systems. In their paper, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the authors synthesised currently available evidence and documented the profound impact on freshwater and near-shore marine systems. Glaciers cover close to 10% of the Earth's land surface but are shrinking rapidly across most parts of the world. Glacier shrinkage will alter sediment transport, and biogeochemical and contaminant fluxes from rivers to oceans. An unexpected impact of glacier shrinkage is the liberation of contaminants including emission products from industrial activity such as black carbon and associated compounds, mercury, pesticides, and other persistent organic pollutants. Though there is uncertainty in the release of these legacy contaminants from glacierised areas, their transport to downstream systems by meltwater will eventually reduce as glacial ...

Global hunger rises for first time in decade 15.9.2017 deccanherald.com
Global hunger levels have risen for the first time in more than a decade, now affecting 11 percent of the worlds population, as conflict, climate change and economic woes bite, U.N. agencies said on Friday. Last year, 815 million people were hungry - 38 million more than in 2015 - the five agencies said in the first global assessment since governments set an international target to eliminate hunger and malnutrition by 2030, as one of a set of so-called Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The number of hungry began to rise in 2014, but this is the first time in more then a decade that the proportion of the global population going hungry has risen. About 489 million of the hungry are living in countries affected by conflict. "Over the past decade, conflicts have risen dramatically in number and become more complex and intractable in nature," the heads of five U.N. agencies said in The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2017 report. "This has set off alarm bells we cannot afford to ignore: ...
