Must Read Daily Newspaper Articles - 9th October, 2019

1. Rajnath Singh receives first Rafale in France; delivery in May 2020: : (GS-3)

UPSC Syllabus : Security challenges and their management; Defense

2. Canadian American, two Swiss stargazers win Physics Nobel(GS-3)

UPSC Syllabus : Science and Technology- developments /p>

A Canadian-American cosmologist and two Swiss scientists won this year's Nobel Prize in Physics on Tuesday for exploring the evolution of the universe and discovering a new kind of planet, with implications for that nagging question: Does life exist only on earth.

3. India to work with China, Pakistan to gauge impact of climate change: (GS-3)

UPSC Syllabus : Bio-diversity and Climate Change

4. Stirring up the truth about ZBNF (GS-3)

UPSC Syllabus : Conservation, environmental pollution and degradation

We need location-specific interventions towards balanced fertilisation and integrated nutrient management. While we try to reduce the use of chemical fertilizers in some locations, we should be open to increasing their use in other locations. But such a comprehensive approach requires a strong embrace of scientific temper and a firm rejection of anti-science postures. In this sense, the inclusion of ZBNF into our agricultural policy by the government appears unwise and imprudent.

5. Rethinking water management issues(GS-3)

UPSC Syllabus : Security challenges and their management in border areas; linkages of organized crime with terrorism; Disaster Management

In December 2018, NITI Aayog released its ‘Strategy for New India @75’ which defined clear objectives for 2022-23, with an overview of 41 distinct areas. In this document, however, the strategy for ‘water resources’ is as insipid and unrealistic as the successive National Water Policies (NWP). Effective strategic planning must satisfy three essential requirements. One, acknowledge and analyse past failures; two, suggest realistic and implementable goals; and three, stipulate who will do what, and within what time frame. The ‘strategy’ for water fails on all three counts..

A strategy document must specify who will be responsible and accountable for achieving the specific goals, and in what time-frame. Otherwise, no one will accept the responsibility to carry out various tasks, and nothing will get done. Take one goal: “Encourage industries to utilise recycled/treated water”. Merely encouraging someone to do something, is not a “goal”. That apart, NITI Aayog does not say who will do this encouraging, and how? Should the State Water Ministries do this by restricting or even withholding recalcitrant industry’s access to fresh water? Should the Environment Ministries cancel clearances for industries which do not practise recycling? Or should the Finance Ministries do this through monetary incentives and disincentives? No one knows.
