Sharp spike in natural disasters impacting agriculture, data shows

The spate of floods in Assam, West Bengal, Gujarat among other parts of the country this monsoon season is part of a global phenomenon that shows a marked increase in frequency and extent of natural disasters in the last six decades or so, data has revealed.

EM-DAT (The International Disaster database) has found that the number of disasters in India went up from three in the decade of 1900-1909, to as many as 186 a century later. And this decade, in the last seven years (2010-16), India has already seen 107 disasters.

The spurt began in the 1950s, coinciding with the decades that show a sharp increase in population in the country. From 1900 to 1949, the number of disasters in India increased from three in the first decade (1900-1909) to nine in 1940-49. Census figures show that India’s population rose from 238 million in 1901 to 361.1 million in 1951. But thereafter the population grew from 439.3 million in 1961 to 1.2 billion in 2011.

Experts say increase in demographic pressure and human activity haves a direct impact on climate change. On the other hand, the resultant changes will impact humans severely.

“The negative impact of climate change on agriculture is well established. The Indian farmer is more vulnerable because climate change impacts disproportionately. The poor are hit harder,” said Vijeta Rattani of the Centre for Science and Environment .

The World Bank said in a report last year that by 2050, India will need to import twice the amount of food grain it does now, due to climate change.

The UN body Food and Agriculture Organisation estimates that of the total damage caused due to such extremities, the damage to agriculture in developing countries is 22%.

Though separate numbers are not available for India, experts expect this to be much higher because of the number of households involved in agriculture -- about 47% of the population.

NSA दौरे से पहले बोला चीन, दोनों देशों के बीच डोकलाम विवाद के पीछे डोभाल

बीजिंग. सिक्किम विवाद को लेकर चीन के सरकारी अखबार ग्लोबल टाइम्स ने एनएसए अजीत डोभाल पर निशाना साधा है। डोकलाम पर चल रहे विवाद के पीछे उसने सीधे तौर पर डोभाल को बताया है। ये बयान उस वक्त सामने आए हैं, जब अजीत डोभाल 27 जुलाई को ब्रिक्स नेशनल सिक्युरिटी एडवाइजर की मीटिंग में हिस्सा लेने के लिए बीजिंग जाने वाले हैं।
सख्त एक्शन लेने की धमकी
- अखबार ने 1962 की जंग का उदाहरण देते हुए लिखा कि अगर भारत ने अपनी सेना नहीं हटाई तो चीन इस पर सख्त एक्शन लेगा। 
- आर्टिकल में लिखा गया कि चीनी सेना इतने कड़े एक्शन ले सकती है, जिसके बारे में भारत सोच भी नहीं सकता। 
- अखबार में लिखा गया कि हमें नहीं लगता कि भारत चीन के साथ जंग के लिए तैयार है। अगर वो जंग का रास्ता चुनता है तो चीन अपनी रक्षा के लिए पूरी तरह सक्षम है और दिल्ली को इसके लिए बड़ी कीमत चुकानी होगी। 
- अखबार का ये आर्टिकल उस वक्त सामने आया है, जब चीन की ओर से इस मुद्दे पर कड़ा रुख अपनाया गया है। 
- इधर, डोभाल के दौरे से भारतीय मीडिया में ऐसा माहौल बना रहा है कि जैसे उनके इस दौरे के बाद सबकुछ ठीक हो जाएगा।

China backs joint energy development with Philippines in disputed sea

Manila: China`s foreign minister on Tuesday said he supported the idea of joint energy ventures with the Philippines in the disputed South China Sea, warning that unilateral action could cause problems and damage both sides.

Wang Yi, on a two-day visit to Manila, made the remarks after President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday said a partner had been found to develop oil fields and exploration and exploitation would restart this year.

Both countries claim the oil and gas reserves, and a deal on sharing could be seen as legitimising the other side`s claim, or giving away sovereign territory.

Wang also said China and Southeast Asian countries were firming up a maritime code of conduct framework, showing the world they could handle differences.

However, in a veiled reference to the United States, he said it was important for regional friends to stand up to outside interference.

"If there are still some non-regional forces in the region, they don`t want to see stability and want to stir up trouble, we need to stand together and say `No` to them together," he said.

In the latest confrontation, Chinese fighter jets intercepted a US Navy surveillance plane over the East China Sea at the weekend, according to US officials.

Berlin summons Turkish envoy over detention of German human rights activist

Berlin: Berlin on Wednesday summoned Turkey's ambassador over the detention of a German human rights activist and issued a fresh warning about the NATO partner's respect for the rule of law.

"The Turkish government needs to immediately and directly hear the German government's outrage and incomprehension as well as its crystal-clear expectations in the case of Peter Steudtner, and this time without diplomatic niceties," foreign ministry spokesman Martin Schaefer said.

Last week Turkey asked legislators to postpone a scheduled visit to a NATO base in Konya, the German foreign ministry said, expressing "regret" about the decision.

The dispute came after Germany last month pulled out 260 troops from Turkey's Incirlik base, from where a multinational coalition is fighting the Islamic State jihadist group, and redeployed them and their Tornado surveillance jets to Jordan.

Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert said Wednesday that in the current context, any progress on Turkey's bid to join the EU was "not on the cards".

He pressed Ankara to consider what relationship it wanted to have with the 28-member bloc given the outstanding "questions about the rule of law" and democratic values in the country.
