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.

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 ...
