Top 8 things PM Narendra Modi said at BRICS summit 1. Terming the agreement towards setting up BRICS's New Development Bank a significant step, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said an open international trading regime is critical for global economic growth. In his statement on the agenda "Sustainable Development and Inclusive Growth" at the sixth BRICS summit, he said the global economic environment remains uncertain and recovery was still fragile despite improved prospects. 2. Modi said that in an environment of political conflict and persisting weakness in major economies, countries have to be watchful for signs of a new bout of financial turmoil. "Developments in Iraq and the wider region could affect this. I am also concerned that tight monetary policies in some countries could undercut investment and growth in ours," he said. 3. The PM added his government would invest heavily in infrastructure, affordable housing, healthcare, education and clean energy, while emphasizing sustainability has been a core ...

As football teams and their hoards of fans head for Brazil, sustainability is perhaps not at the top of their thoughts… Without becoming sustainable, many tourist destinations fail to thrive and often perish, according to a research paper published in the International Journal of Environment and Sustainable Development. The study's authors Ana Lucia Magalhaes of the State of Sao Paulo Technological College in Brazil and colleagues point out that, "Tourism brings significant impacts, physical, economic and cultural, with important positive and negative aspects." They have investigated the subject with a case study on the Brazilian tourist destination of Cunha. The town represents a unique part of Brazilian history, located between the gold mines and the Rio de Janeiro harbour, it was home to bands of gold thieves in the early 18th century. From their study of modern-day Cunha, they have elicited a five-point plan, a set of guidelines for sustainable tourism that is applicable to this developing world tou ...

Niklas Wennberg is a Swedish environmentalist who spent the last 25 years developing standards and models for urban and rural resilience with food as a key factor in understandable change. Niklas has been engaged by SIDA (Swedish agency for foreign development) to propose better management of aquatic resources from capture fisheries and aquaculture in ten Southeast Asian countries. He also chaired the process delivering the first ecolabelling system for fish from Nordic waters. 2008 Niklas decided to skip the tie and bought rubber boots to engage in policymaking and development of prototype workshops built up in urban reality. Not in labs. For starters he and his team Stadsjord (Swedish for urban soil) gathered Christians, Jews, Muslims and together in 2009 they introduced the first inner city pigs in Göteborg to focus the need for a more sustainable urban food model cooperating over different belief, culture and knowledge.

When a handful of technocrats from the world’s most advanced nations gathered in a UN basement in 2000 to establish global development goals, their objective seemed simply to create a blueprint to help the world’s poor by 2015. But as the deadline nears and many targets remain to be met, the UN is shifting from what it once hailed as the world’s ambitious, unwavering promise to the world’s poor, known as the Millennium Development Goals, to a more inclusive, participatory and sophisticated approach of the Sustainable Development Goals. These new goals, which are to be finalised by the General Assembly in the summer, attempt to revise the previous ones by involving more global leaders and seeking to align national priorities with international goals, rather than imposing international goals on countries with widely varying needs and resources.

THE ARCHITECT – A WEAVER OF DREAMS by Ernesto R. Zárate, FPIA (Reposting for all the new graduates of architecture.) Let us go back to basics, so to speak. Let me open your eyes to a facet of the profession you may never have thought of. Let us start with definitions. WHAT IS AN ARCHITECT? Not so long ago, the UIA (Union Internationale des Architectes) came up with a definition after consolidating all the other definitions from other architectural organizations of different countries. It defines an architect as… “A person professionally and academically qualified; registered to practice; responsible for advocating the fair and sustainable development, welfare and cultural expression of society’s habitat in terms of space, form and historical context.” That is what an architect is, according to the UIA. If one examines each single phrase of that definition, one would agree that, yes, it is quite correct… although it might go over the heads of the common tao. To the ordinary man on the street, ...

In 2011, people living in South Sudan and those dwelling in diaspora casted in their voted almost 100% for independent. They fulfill very essence, and ideals of the long decades of the liberation struggles. All citizens were delight to celebrate euphoric moment of political autonomy with an awe-inspiring that superseded meaning of happiness.

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS I have been afforded and awarded the opportunity to go to Dublin, Ireland from the 15-19 October 2014 as a delegate at the One young world Summit. Unlike any other event, the summit gives young people the kind of media platform and forum ordinarily afforded only to the leaders of nations and corporations. At the Summit, delegates from around 190 countries gather, joined by world leaders to debate, formulate and share innovative solutions for the pressing issues the world faces. I have to raise 2,750 Euros which converted is about (R40 000) for hotel accommodation in Dublin, all meals and catering, transport in Dublin and all handouts and summit support material, this amount is exclusive of cost of flights/travel to and from the host city. The exciting part for me is that following each summit the attending delegates(such as myself) become One Young World Ambassadors and are charged to work on their own initiatives or lend the power of the One Young World network to those ...
The 1993-2003 period will be remembered as one of stability and development. It is thanks to the determination, courage, experience, outlook and thought-out policies of Heydar Aliyev that Azerbaijan managed to get out of that difficult situation and embark on a path of sustainable development. Today we build our work and develop Azerbaijan within the framework of the policy defined in those years. The ongoing and deepening political and economic reforms in the country reaffirm Azerbaijan in the world as a very strong country and regional state. Over the last 10 years we deepened the reforms, mobilized our society, strengthened the solidarity in Azerbaijani society and covered a long and successful road. (Speech by President Ilham Aliyev at the official reception on the occasion of the national holiday of Azerbaijan – the Republic Day, 27.05.2014)

Pakistan should abandon the existing coal power policy, due to highly inefficient coal power plants and high tariff, a policy paper written by Arshad H Abbasi, an energy expert associated with the Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI), revealed on Tuesday. The government needs to adopt a policy based on the state-of-the-art technology to set benchmark in South Asia as a model of clean coal development, it showed. The government needs to encourage independent power producers (IPPs) to install state-of the-art coal power plants with the efficiency of more than 45 percent with zero Mercury emissions, using less than 320 grams of coal to generate one unit of electricity, the paper said. All such coal-based power plants must qualify and should be admissible under the joint implementation and Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) rules to earn carbon credits, it said. However, under the existing policy, the coal-based power plants with less efficiency and high tariff will not only expose the country to th ...

After attending the village meeting on dissolving Medina, I have more questions answers. I didn't figure out who originally was responsible for deciding that, after 182 years of having a successful village, our only choice is now, whether or not to dissolve this town. Also, will we be moving from an elected government of local citizens, to a bunch of unelected boards from county, state, or federal agencies? Is this a plan initiated by the state or federal government as part of a renamed organization under the UN's plan for "sustainable Development", Agenda 21? What about just cutting the fat and strengthening this village rather than tearing it down. When we are one village, the village of Medina, we have more to say about how this village is run. Will we be giving that up for a few grants and tax cuts that are promised but will probably never happen? How can we expect grants from a federal or state government, of which neither has any money I believe we are being scammed and that dissolution is "NOT" ...
Transpacific Women Against the TPP Global Resistance against a Common Crisis The hypocrisy of the global moment is staggering. As the international community attempts to create a new plan towards sustainable development, the Trans-Pacific Partnership secretively guarantees inequalities and exploitation.. Whatever progress we have in the Sustainable Development arena will be superseded by the TPP in the participating countries. What we need is a new global architecture that prioritizes people over profit. People’s movements are fertile; communities from Malaysia, to the US and Japan are rising against the TPP. We face a common crisis of growing and deepening inequalities in the face of unprecedented environmental crisis. We have the opportunity to chart a new course that the vast majority of this world wants, a course of global equity, of ecological sustainability, of social justice, human rights enjoyment and dignity for all. We call for an absolute end to the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement, and fo ...

With operations in 46 countries, Monsanto has become the world leader in genetically modified organisms (GMOs), as well as one of the most controversial corporations in industrial history. Since its founding in 1901, the U.S. multinational has faced trial after trial due to the toxicity of its products. Today, it has reinvented itself as a "life sciences" company converted to the virtues of sustainable development. Calling on hitherto unpublished documents and first-hand accounts by victims, scientists and politicians, The World According to Monsanto pieces together the story of an industrial giant that, thanks in part to lies, collusion with the American government, pressure tactics and attempted corruption, has become one of the world's leading seed manufacturers, spreading GM crops worldwide with no real monitoring of their effects on nature or human health.

Watershed watchers press for cleaner Floyds Fork to protect parks investment. As more people flock to Floyds Fork to paddle canoes and kayaks, a new study recommends more frequent sampling for bacteria, along with a continued push for improving water quality there. The state-sanctioned volunteer group Salt River Watershed Watch, which did the study, recommends stepped-up monitoring from May through October at six canoe launch areas along Floyds Fork, after finding elevated bacteria readings at two sites during weekly monitoring last August. The watershed watch focused on the canoe and kayak launches because they are becoming more popular with development of the Parklands of Floyds Fork, a new string of parks being established by the private, nonprofit group 21st Century Parks. Noting that $120 million in private and public money was raised to buy land and develop the parks, watershed watch organizer Russ Barnett said, "Those capital investments are only as good as the quality of that stream."

You render the masses homeless from one day to the next all in the claim of some company land... but you pay 40billion to kidnappers for foreigners.

Urban areas are being consolidated and rural areas are being emptied of people through restrictive land use policies, gasoline costs, vehicle miles traveled taxes, loss of rural road maintenance, closure of rural schools, closure of rural post offices, water well monitoring, smart meters, and regionalization pressures. Smart Growth is not just the preferred building style for UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development; it is the ideology.

Agenda 21 made its way into the U.S. the following year when President Clinton quietly established the President’s Council on Sustainable Development (PCSD). The PCSD codified Agenda 21 into U.S. policy through a program called Sustainable America. Today, nearly all federal programs dealing with land management, education, environment and much more are linked to Agenda 21 through Sustainable America. Because of grassroots pushback, the federal government today rarely uses the term Agenda 21 or Sustainable America anymore – especially with any program it is promoting. Instead, programs which administer Agenda 21’s sustainable development principles are given warm and fuzzy titles like the America’s Great Outdoors Initiative, Partnership for Sustainable Communities, Obama’s Climate Action Plan and many more. Even the newest education fad, Common Core, is linked to Agenda 21, as are the new Next Generation Science Standards. - See more at:

Good Afternoon ! The Politics of Odisha in the meantime has been closely associated with National Politics so also international politics. So, my good leaders & administrators, please be careful while discharging official duties of Sustainable Development. US President Barack Obama appointed Madam Nancy Powell as US Ambassador to India who joined in office at India on 19th April-2012 at a time while Sri Jhinna Hikaka, MLA Laxmipur was abducted by Maoists & then Maoists extended some days to release MLA. Now while she felt that a change in union government is unavoidable, she preferred to submit resignation & accordingly in Odisha we have foreseen change in Politics.
