Title: Options for keeping the food system within environmental limits
Date of publication: 10 October 2018
Description/subject: Abstract: "The food system is a major driver of climate change, changes in land use, depletion of freshwater resources, and pollution of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems through excessive nitrogen and phosphorus inputs. Here we show that between 2010 and 2050, as a result of expected changes in population and income levels, the environmental effects of the food system could increase by 50–90% in the absence of technological changes and dedicated mitigation measures, reaching levels that are beyond the planetary boundaries that define a safe operating space for humanity. We analyse several options for reducing the environmental effects of the food system, including dietary changes towards healthier, more plant-based diets, improvements in technologies and management, and reductions in food loss and waste. We find that no single measure is enough to keep these effects within all planetary boundaries simultaneously, and that a synergistic combination of measures will be needed to sufficiently mitigate the projected increase in environmental pressures."

Title: Transcontinental and global power grids
Description/subject: "Diverse geopolitical, market integration and techno-economic dynamics push for further interconnecting the higher voltage systems across countries and continents. The best locations for the generation of renewable electricity are not uniformly distributed across the European continent and worldwide. Sizable renewable energy potential is concentrated in sites far from the power grid (e.g. offshore sea) or where grid transfer capacity is low. The energy production from renewable sources also greatly depends on local weather conditions. To fully utilise these resources, the power grid must be enhanced to allow electricity to be transported to the main demand and storage centres. A more flexible, yet robust, transmission grid may be instrumental to interlink distant electricity markets and take advantage of the low-carbon resources temporal and spatial complementarity. All the above may drive the realisation of a transcontinental higher transfer capacity system to transport large amounts of electricity over long distances. High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) technologies, due to their lower losses and smaller environmental impact, promise to be the cornerstones of such global power grid..."

Title: UN Envoy Meets With Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi to Discuss Rohingya Crisis.
Date of publication: 12 October 2018
Description/subject: "The United Nations special envoy to Myanmar met with State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi in Naypyidaw on Friday to discuss the Rohingya crisis in beleaguered Rakhine state, where the repatriation of some of the 720,000 Muslim refugees who fled to Bangladesh last year during a crackdown has yet to get fully under way. Christine Schraner Burgener, appointed to her post in April by U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, spoke with Myanmar’s leader about how the U.N. can help with the return and resettlement of the Rohingya, said Chan Aye, director general of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. A former Swiss diplomat, Burgener met with Aung San Suu Kyi, who also serves as Myanmar's foreign affairs minister, at the start of a nine-day visit. She had earlier met with Lt. Gen. Soe Win, vice chief of staff of the Myanmar Army, on Monday to discuss the Rakhine issue and the use of child soldiers by the military, Chan Aye said..."

Title: North China Plain threatened by deadly heatwaves due to climate change and irrigation
Date of publication: 31 July 2018
Description/subject: Abstract: "North China Plain is the heartland of modern China. This fertile plain has experienced vast expansion of irrigated agriculture which cools surface temperature and moistens surface air, but boosts integrated measures of temperature and humidity, and hence enhances intensity of heatwaves. Here, we project based on an ensemble of high-resolution regional climate model simulations that climate change would add significantly to the anthropogenic effects of irrigation, increasing the risk from heatwaves in this region. Under the business-as-usual scenario of greenhouse gas emissions, North China Plain is likely to experience deadly heatwaves with wet-bulb temperature exceeding the threshold defining what Chinese farmers may tolerate while working outdoors. China is currently the largest contributor to the emissions of greenhouse gases, with potentially serious implications to its own population: continuation of the current pattern of global emissions may limit habitability in the most populous region, of the most populous country on Earth."

Title: To Save the Planet From Climate Catastrophe, New Study Says Put Down the Damn Meat
Date of publication: 11 October 2018
Description/subject: "Adopting healthy and more plant-based diets globally could reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of the food system by more than half...Amid fresh warnings from United Nations researchers that there is a closing window to enact the "rapid, far-reaching, and unprecedented" societal changes needed to prevent a climate catastrophe, a new study of the global food system underscores the environmental necessity of a massive reduction in meat consumption worldwide. Considering projections that the world's population could grow to 10 billion by 2050, "Options for Keeping the Food System Within Environmental Limits", published Wednesday in the scientific journal "Nature", found that mitigating the climate crisis requires overhauling the current system by shifting toward more plant-based diets, improving technologies and management, and slashing food waste by at least half. "Feeding a world population of 10 billion is possible, but only if we change the way we eat and the way we produce food," study co-author Johan Rockström of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) in Germany told the Guardian. "Greening the food sector or eating up our planet: this is what is on the menu today."..."

Description/subject: "Urgent changes needed to cut risk of extreme heat, drought, floods and poverty, says IPCC...The world’s leading climate scientists have warned there is only a dozen years for global warming to be kept to a maximum of 1.5C, beyond which even half a degree will significantly worsen the risks of drought, floods, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people. The authors of the landmark report by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released on Monday say urgent and unprecedented changes are needed to reach the target, which they say is affordable and feasible although it lies at the most ambitious end of the Paris agreement pledge to keep temperatures between 1.5C and 2C..."

Title: As Trump turns away, China gains in Myanmar
Date of publication: 04 July 2018
Description/subject: "Does US President Donald Trump have a distinct policy towards Myanmar, and if so how does it differ from the engagement gambit championed by his predecessor Barack Obama? Trump has paid little to no attention to Myanmar while pursuing ties with other Southeast Asian states, raising questions about his government’s stance towards the country. It’s still unclear if that’s because of Myanmar’s lingering strategic ties to North Korea or Trump’s political instincts to undo Obama’s legacy in the region. One of Trump’s few statements on Myanmar was made during his trip to the region last November, in which he pledged US support for an end to the violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine state and the safe return of hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees who have fled military violence into neighboring Bangladesh..."

The Rakhine incident – i.e. the brutal military crackdown on Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar’s western Rakhine state launched last August that sent 700,000 refugees across the border to Bangladesh and renewed the country’s pariah status as a serial rights abuser – is starting to take a toll on the tourism sector....."

The 162-page report says that the exodus of around 700,000 Rohingya Muslims to Bangladesh last year — after a campaign of mass slaughter, rape and village burnings in Rakhine State in Myanmar — was the culmination of months of meticulous planning by the security forces..."

Title: IPCC says limiting global warming to 1.5 °C will require drastic action. Humanity has a limited window within which it can hope to avoid the more dire effects of climate change, according to climate report.
Date of publication: 08 October 2018
Description/subject: "...Humanity has a limited window within which it can hope to avoid the more dire effects of climate change, according to climate report...Limiting global warming to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels would be a herculean task, involving rapid, dramatic changes in the way that governments, industries and societies function, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). But even though the world has already warmed by 1 °C, humanity has 10 to 30 more years to kick its carbon habit than scientists previously thought. The world would have to curb its carbon emissions by at least 49% of 2017 levels by 2030 and then achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 in order to meet this target, according to a summary of the latest IPCC report, released on 8 October. The report draws on research conducted since nations unveiled the 2015 Paris climate agreement, which seeks to curb greenhouse gas emissions and limit global temperature increase to 1.5-2 °C. ..."

Title: A vision for war without end in Myanmar
Date of publication: 30 May 2018
Description/subject: "As the dust settles on one of the Myanmar military’s broadest counterinsurgency campaigns in decades, it is clear that its war in the country’s rugged north against the rebel Kachin Independence Army (KIA) has escalated sharply as military casualties mount and thousands more internally displaced persons (IDPs) are driven from their homes. The onset of the rains this month will reduce the tempo of the conflict as cloud cover impedes air strikes and troop and equipment movement along minor roads becomes more difficult. However, the manner in which the war is now changing as the KIA regroups and reassesses its shrinking strategic options guarantees all but guarantees sustained bitter fighting in the months ahead..."

Title: Assessing the Rohingya crisis
Date of publication: 13 June 2018
Description/subject: "When Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy (NLD) triumphed at Myanmar’s 2015 general election she was riding high, supported by millions of hopeful citizens eager for change. Her party swept away its opponents from the former military regime and also garnered much approval from the country’s many minority groups. This groundswell of electoral support pulled together old-style socialists, ethnic subnationalists, tech-savvy youngsters, and millions of people simply fed up with government mismanagement..."

Date of publication: 17 September 2018
Description/subject: ''Along downtown Rangoon’s Pansodan Street, this city’s hub of humming bookstores and street stalls, there are rich discoveries to be had. From bestseller novels, political investigations, bodice-ripper love stories, biographies, textbooks, TOEFL tomes, poetry, photocopied versions of Western works on Burma, and, in the dustier corners of the Lower Pansodan venders, dog-eared Mickey Spillane pulp fiction, distressed Marxist-Leninist texts in Russian, almost nostalgic Myanmar Socialist-era propaganda magazines, and sinister – yet laughable – military State Law and Order Restoration Council (SLORC)-era xenophobic conspiracy theory agitprop. A few years ago I found a prize for my library: an original Ian Fleming picture book of his classic Chitty Chitty Bang-Bang to join the collection of James Bond novels...''

Title: Karen Refugee Committee Newsletter & Monthly Report, August 2018
Date of publication: August 2018
Description/subject: "Map of Karen Refugee Camps 2015...Karen Refugee Committee Newsletter and Activity Report July - 2018...Monthly Activities Report July – 2018...NGO Supporters...Camp Population Report July- 2018: Registered people in the 7 camps (Mae La; Umphiem; Nu Po; Mae La Oon; Mae Ra Moe; Htam Hin; Don Yang); Unregistered people in the 7 camps; New Arrivals in the 7 camps; Pre-Screening People in the 7 Camps; Number of PAB People in the 7 camps; Boarding House Students in the 7 camps; Feeding Figures in the 7 camps; General Population in the 7 camps...."It is said that, a wise man hear only once and can understand two different things. In this month of August, based on my activities and experiences, and what I have heard, saw and felt, I have learned many things out of them and there are many new insights which I wanted to share with you though I might a little crazy to myself. One thing which motivates my mind is a little strange, and whether I should term it as ‘Yes’ or ‘No’. However, I want to leave it to your decision. Concerning the social and humanitarian crisis in Burma/Myanmar, refugee/IDPs issue is one of the ongoing issues which has been running for more than 40 decades along the ThaiBurma border. Many refugees have been living in the camps have different understanding about the sign of the different happenings. Some of them have mixed up feelings, signal such as plus, minor, multiply, division (+, -, x, ÷). Among them, some may be easy and some are difficult to identify. However, the reality we are facing now shows that, there have been tremendous changes in refugee humanitarian assistance. From 1995 till 2012, the supports to refugee camps was adequate. The condition of the support didn’t depend on any sign of changes. They were consistent and stable. The present situation is same as before. They only changes is the sign of making decision. This solely depends on whether how much confidence to make the decision or you are over-confidence in decision-making. These signs will tell which in which position you are in, whether you choose the essay one or difficult one. Now, looking at the present political condition in Burma/Myanmar, with the present government initiating NCA between ethnic armed organizations (signatories), somehow, the situation is similar to refugees. If the two signs are not the same, the development will be slow. You may be able to change the time, however, no matter how much you try to change the individual, it will be impossible unless there is common interests. Looking from humanitarian point of view, there have many peace packages poured through MPC for last few years, which the intention to create way for peace development. This sign indeed, seemed generous and loving-kindness. However, the dynamic of the creation process, limited many positive opportunities. But just money alone cannot change the people. Thus, this comes down to how we make decision and how much we want to (sincerely) see changes. There have been more noises than sound in reality. This indistinctive sounds create impact on refugee situation, where many worries about the funding reduction. In my opinion, a long term solution, sustainable and effective, it needs not only head but heart, with sincere and commitment to the transformative solution. We continue to appeal to friends who have been with us in time of good and bad, for your continuous support including UNHCR, donors, NGOs and INGOs and CBOs. Sincerely yours, General Secretary Karen Refugee Committee."

Title: Myanmar cuts cost of China-funded port project by 80%
Date of publication: 28 September 2018
Description/subject: "Beijing yields as more countries become wary of Belt and Road debt trap...Myanmar has agreed to scale down a Chinese-led port project in the western state of Rakhine, slashing the initial price tag to $1.3 billion from $7.2 billion over concerns about excessive debt. The development is located in the special economic zone of Kyaukpyu, a natural harbor facing the Indian Ocean that is suited for large ships. They already have oil pipelines running to China and a port capable of docking 300,000-ton tankers. "Myanmar has been highly successful in re-negotiating the Kyaukpyu deep-sea port," said Sean Turnell, an economic advisor to State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi. "Myanmar's model of dealing with Kyaukpyu could be replicated by other countries as well." Myanmar was able to reduce its financial burden while saving face for China, which intends to make the zone a key point in its Belt and Road Initiative..."

Description/subject: "This Situation Update describes events occurring in Bilin Township, Thaton District during the period between January and March 2018. It includes information on arbitrary tax collection by the Tatmadaw, KNU responses to drug use and drug trafficking, as well as a logging dispute. Tatmadaw Battalion commander Bo Than Zin from Light Infantry Battalion #210 under Light Infantry Division #22 arbitrarily collected taxes from villagers who own wood processing machines in Lay Kay and Ler Hklaw villages. Because the KNU does not have the means to test for drugs, they fined drug users and drug traffickers based on information provided in the community. The KNU is trying to respond to an increase in drug use and trafficking. The KNU Township and District authorities gave permission to local people to log for wood in Bilin Township. This permission was revoked once wood was sent to Bilin Town, instead of being used by the local community..."
