poultry farms across north India are facing a mysterious viral disease. As many as two million birds have fallen prey to the illness and the economic loss has already mounted to more than Rs 60 crore. Even as the authorities' final diagnosis is long overdue, a chicken-and-egg controversy -- involving a major industry player and a pharmaceutical giant -- has erupted on whether or not a vaccine caused the outbreak
The human genome may not solve all our problems. One of the most far-reaching consequences of the decoding is the ability to predict people's susceptibility to particular diseases. Experts question the use of such a power. Will employers harness the data to block jobs for those with a less favourable genetic inheritance?
why should four per cent of the agricultural workforce (mostly affluent) in high-income countries reap the rich harvest of an international trade regime, when 70 per cent farmers (predominantly indigent) in developing countries get a raw deal under the same pact?
The Karnataka government ostensibly allows private production of sandalwood, but actually maintains a tight rein on the trade. In fact, eight months after the notification of amendments in the Karnataka Forest (Amendment) Act 2001, stakeholders are yet to see any tangible evidence of the deregulation that these changes were meant to usher in
The High Court in London confirmed that the British Geological Survey has a reasonable case to answer and that the victims have a realistic prospect of success in their pursuit of claims. The court decided that the litigation raised a novel point in law and could not be summarily dismissed at a preliminary hearing. The verdict paves the way for the victims to file a case for compensation
The eriophyid mite has a field day, while officials sleep tight. The pest attack was first reported in 2000, when a farmer from the Puri district became quizzical about a white powder sprinkled around his trees

Thirty years after banning manual scavenging under the Night Soil Carrying System Abolition Act, Karnataka is still a fair way away from flushing it out of the system. On April 25, 2003, though, a minuscule step was taken in this direction when the Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP) inaugurated a mobile mechanised suction machine to clean soak pits holding human excreta

It was only half a year ago, but events since the Johannesburg earth summit already make it seem like a distant event. The world has just seen an American-engineered war in which the un was sidelined and the us paid scant regard to the views of even its traditional allies. The current global political theatre is centred on anything but sustainable development. Against this background, the 11th meeting of the un's Commission for Sustainable Development (csd) held in New York, usa, from April 28 to May 9, does not really seem like an important event.

It is more than two years since the terrible earthquake struck Gujarat. In this period the catastrophe-struck areas have witnessed rehabilitation work on an enormous scale. The Disaster Mitigation Institute, an Ahmedabad-based community action hub, evaluated the relief measures undertaken by the government and humanitarian agencies in the aftermath of the calamity
Urbanisation in developing countries is marked by large increases in population and has consequences such as sprawl. As a physical phenomenon, urbanisation takes two paths: through expansion of existing urban bodies by engulfing adjoining villages into their territory and through the independent transformation of rural areas into urban areas. Delhi is a classic example...
IN THE developed world, conducting business today is also about being environmentally accountable. Governments have imposed stringent regulatory measures. Multilateral bodies have created mandatory codes of conduct, which boardrooms must pay heed to. Investors look not only (or merely) for profits; ecological responsibility is a more important dividend. Companies now publish sustainability reports to prove they are proactive about being clean. The productivity paradigm has shifted: pollution control is a concept of the past
