FAO warn policy makers that no action is not an option where climate change is concerned

first_imgLocalNews FAO warn policy makers that no action is not an option where climate change is concerned by: – October 12, 2011 Sharing is caring! 82 Views   no discussions Share Sharecenter_img Tweet Share Image via: en.wikipedia.orgAn FAO representative in the Caribbean has warned policy makers that lack of action where climate change is concerned is not an option. Dr. Lystra Fletcher Paul says a no regret strategy must be implemented to address the issue of climate change. Dr Paul was speaking at a media briefing at the Fort Young Hotel for the Caribbean Week of Agriculture taking place this week. She says the Caribbean region is vulnerable to climate change. “When we look at the date over a number of years in terms of the rainfall, we are seeing it is quite clear that we are experiencing the effects of climate change. They include sea level rise, increases in temperature and reduction in rainfall over the periods. As a result of that we are vulnerable because we are a small island developing state with limited resources. Because of vulnerability, it will affect our viability. We need to send a message to the policy makers that if we do not act we will be in some serious trouble,” she said.She said there is also need to adopt a no regret strategy.“In other words we act as though it is going to happen as insurance in case it happens,” she said.Meantime, Dr. Paul says the use of water in agriculture is critical. She says an allocation Strategy for water in Agriculture is among policy options which could be used. “One of the main things is the whole issue of water allocation for agriculture. What happens in most of the country is there is water for domestic use, tourism, and manufacturing, everything else and if there’s any remaining it is allocated to agriculture. If we are serious about food security, we need to put water on the front burner,” she said. She said the allocation strategy for water for agriculture is very important.“Other issues that were important for the policy are pricing, capacity building-this is something that’s very important because our young people are not going into agriculture. We need to show them that they need to get involved. The importance of having an inter-sectoral approach is also very important,” she explained.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

2012/2013 budget to reflect unnecessary spending-PM Skerrit

first_img Tweet 6 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring! Share Sharecenter_img Share Prime Minister and Finance Minister, Roosevelt SkerritIn a recent interview with GIS news, Prime Minister Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit who is also the Minister for Finance revealed that the 2012/2013 budget report will contain priorities that are in the best interest of the country.The Prime Minister stated that the decline in the island’s income and the increase in expenditure is a matter which government must consider.“We are crafting a budget in an environment that is not very conducive to a number of things. As I indicated, there’s been a drop in revenue and there’s an increase in expenditure so we have to now try to balance these two to ensure that we do not spend more than we are in fact making. Therefore the Government has to look critically at what the priorities are for the 2012/2013 financial year.”The Prime Minister then mentioned that it is unrealistic to expect every concern to be dealt with in one year’s budget.“Like every year, there are citizens who expect to see every single thing addressed in a one year budget and we cannot expect that because we are mindful of the environment. Everybody around us is experiencing challenges; there are countries within Caricom which have IMF programmes. There are countries that have imposed additional taxes on their citizens, like in Antigua, Barbados and Jamaica. People are basically taxed on every single thing under the sun to generate some revenue. They’re not doing it because they don’t like or love their citizens, in most cases they have no other options towards addressing the particular problem they have.”The Prime Minister stated that citizens can expect to see continued moves by government to reduce unnecessary spending.“For the last couple years, I’ve been containing discretionary expenditure to ensure that the things that are not necessarily needed we do not need to get and put the resources in order of more important areas to assist the citizens of this country and you will see more of that oversight taking place in the weeks and months to come where there will be curtailing of expenditure.”Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit said that the date for the budget report will be announced within the next few days and the success of the new fiscal year will require the cooperation of all Dominicans.Government Information Service LocalNews 2012/2013 budget to reflect unnecessary spending-PM Skerrit by: – June 22, 2012last_img read more

Juventus name new head coach

first_imgJuventus have named Andrea Pirlo as their new head coach on a two-year contract, just hours after sacking Maurizio Sarri.He was only named the club’s Under-23 head coach last month, but has secured a major promotion before even taking charge of one match with the Serie C outfit. It will be a major challenge for the 41-year-old who has never managed before, either at youth or senior level.“Today’s choice is based on the belief that Pirlo has what it takes to lead from his debut on the bench, an expert and talented squad to pursue new successes,” a statement from Juventus read.Pirlo returns to Juve having starred for the club between 2011 and 2015.The midfielder helped lead the Bianconeri to four straight Serie A titles, as well as the final of the 2014-15 Champions League.Internationally, Pirlo represented Italy on 116 occasions and was a member of his country’s victorious 2006 World Cup team. His playing career ended in 2017 after a three-year spell at MLS side New York City FC, after which he began preparing for a career in coaching.Pirlo will take over a team that has won nine consecutive Serie A titles, but has continued to fall short in the Champions League.Sarri was sacked after just one season despite winning the Scudetto at the first time of asking.Juventus were shockingly eliminated by Lyon in the Champions League last 16 on Friday, as a 2-1 victory over the Ligue 1 side was not enough to avoid an exit on away goals in a 2-2 aggregate final score.Following a meeting of Juve’s hierarchy on Saturday, the decision was taken to swiftly replace the 61-year-old former Chelsea and Napoli manager. Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, along with former Juventus managers Massimiliano Allegri and Antonio Conte were quickly linked with the job but the Bianconeri have instead opted to take a risk on Pirlo, a coaching novice.Pirlo will have high expectations to meet, with it now established that success in Europe is the principal goal for Juventus.The club’s last Champions League win came in 1995-96 and Pirlo will be expected to help end a drought that has now reached 24 years.The signing of Cristiano Ronaldo in 2018 was expected to help end the club’s wait for European glory, but the Portugal superstar has only managed to lead Juventus to a quarter-final exit at the hands of Ajax last term before this season’s stunning round-of-16 elimination at the hands of Lyon.RelatedPosts Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win Live stream Premier League, La Liga, Serie A on Showmax Pro this weekend Juve’s Pirlo gamble makes new Serie A season the most open for years Tags: Andrea PirloJuventusMaurizio SarriSerie Alast_img read more

Pochettino: Kane always in my plans

first_img “He is English, he shows passion and is in very good condition – he is a very important player for us.” Kane’s rise to prominence at White Hart Lane casts more uncertainty over the future of Emmanuel Adebayor. Adebayor has not played since Tottenham lost 2-1 at home to Stoke last month, after which the striker said the home supporters were having a negative effect on the team. Pochettino claims he enjoys a healthy relationship with the Togo forward, who he says has been out with a back injury and a virus. “My relationship with Emmanuel is very good, I was a player and I understand my players,” Pochettino explained. “After the international break he came back with a back problem and after that he got a virus. “I spoke with him at training and he is not ready to play, he still felt weak – maybe in the next few games he will be ready to help the team. “All the players in the squad are in my plans for the future. “It is normal for there to be a lot speculation in the media around the players and the club but for me I don’t comment on that.” Also on the comeback trail is right-back Kyle Walker, who has recovered from an abdominal injury and played for the Under-21 side against Manchester City on Monday. Walker will feature for the development team again at Fulham on Saturday as he continues to regain fitness. Julian Speroni believes Crystal Palace have to approach their game at Tottenham as a match they can win -or they risk falling into the relegation battle. The Eagles currently sit 15th in the Barclays Premier League table but are just one point clear of the bottom three. Warnock’s side had taken four points from clashes with Liverpool and Swansea before a home defeat to fellow strugglers Aston Villa on Tuesday and could find themselves in the relegation zone if Spurs can see them off. But Speroni feels a safety-first approach could have a detrimental effect on Palace, especially if they make the short trip to north London intent on sitting back and looking to leave with a point. “It’s a week where we need to prepare well and make sure the recovery is spot-on. It’ll be a tough challenge for us but we’re looking forward to it,” the Argentina goalkeeper told the club’s official website. “We’ve been creating a lot, especially against Villa, and we hope to do that against Tottenham too. Any point away from home is always a good point but if you go into games with that mentality then you tend to lose. You have to go out there thinking you can win, try to win and then see what happens. “We try not to think too much about what has happened before, we try to prepare for every game in the same manner. We know it’s going to be a tough challenge but we have the confidence to go there and try and win the game because of the performances we’ve had lately.” Palace are likely to be without midfielder Joe Ledley. The Wales international is suffering from a recurrence of a hip problem that ruled him out of Tuesday night’s defeat. He is unlikely to be fit to return at White Hart Lane and will join defenders Damien Delaney (calf) and Adrian Mariappa (knee) on the sidelines – with Dwight Gayle available having been forced off against Villa through illness. Mauricio Pochettino insists Tottenham have never considered letting in-form striker Harry Kane leave the club. Press Association Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock claimed on Thursday he tried to sign Kane on loan before the start of the campaign but that Spurs were keen to keep the striker for their Europa League fixtures. Kane has scored 11 goals in all competitions for Spurs this season and his impressive performances have seen him start all of Tottenham’s last four Barclays Premier League matches. “It is the first time I have heard this information,” Pochettino said in response to Warnock’s comments. “I have never known it was possible. Our first idea was to keep Harry Kane and give him chances to play. “My idea was to keep Harry because we believe in him and his potential to play for Tottenham. “He has since shown we were right in our decision to keep him.” Kane is one of a handful of home-grown players to have been given a chance under Pochettino, with Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb also enjoying the faith of the new head coach. Pochettino believes Kane’s affiliation with the club is a valuable asset to the team. “At the moment Harry is not feeling any pressure,” Pochettino added. “It is important that he is a player who feels the club, he came through the academy and he knows our values. last_img read more

FL Residents Find Land Mines; Woman Stores One in Living Room

first_imgThe Treasure Coast has really been living up to its name.Sebastian resident Jayne Wilson was walking along the shore of Tracking Station Beach in Vero Beach last spring, when she came across an explosive World War II-era land mine.“I was thinking it might have been a plate off the Spanish shipwreck,” says Wilson.She kept the land mine in a cooler that was submerged in water in her living room for about nine months.Wilson finally acted this week, after realizing it was an inactive explosive device.“I called the non-emergency police number and said, ‘I am pretty sure I have a land mine,’” the woman explains.She was then instructed to evacuate the house immediately, as military bomb experts made their way to the home, in order to seize the device.Meanwhile, a man who was using a metal detector found another old land mine on Tuesday of this week, near 640 Reef Road in the area of Indian River County Beach.The Indian River Sheriff’s Office dispatched representatives from Patrick Air Force Base to investigate that discovery.last_img read more
