🧵We are a group of volunteers exploring existing and non-conventional options for moving #Ukrainian #grains, #wheat and #agricultural products into the #European #Railway Network for distribution to EU #Export terminals, primarily, but not exclusively on the #Danube Waterway.
Why, what's stopping this?

Similar to @Apple, @Microsoft or @Android Operating Systems, #Ukraine's and #Europe's #trains, #locomotives & #wagons operate on physically different track widths.

While having similar functionalities, they don't "play well with each other".

Specifically, a Ukrainian train cannot travel on a European railway (track) and European trains cannot travel on Ukrainian railways.

The width, called "Gauge", between rails is different. Ukrainian is 1520mm wide, while European is 1435mm.

Reality of Doubling #Farmers Income by Modi Govt by 2022

Dalwai committee formed to double farmer's income ,talked about ‘real’ growth in farmer income & calculated that this would require an annual avg of 10.4% growth in income for 7 years, starting with 2015-16 base.
The #farm household’s avg monthly income of ₹8,059 in 2015-16 is an “extrapolation” of the Situation Assessment Survey (SAS) of 2012-13. The extrapolation was done by the Ashok Dalwai-headed committee (DFI committee) constituted in 2017 to suggest how to double #farmers’ income.
Economic Survey 2021-22, indicated that the avg monthly income per #agricultural household in the country stood at Rs 10,218 in 2019, up from Rs 8,059 in 2015-16, & Rs 6,426 in 2013-14, whereas #farmers income in Jharkhand, M.P, Nagaland, Odisha decreased between 2015-16 to 2019

© Olena Karpenko Image
This is #Ukraine 🇺🇦 pictured on top of a map of #Europe. It's the biggest European country, bigger than France. Donbass' territories occupied by Russia are as big as Switzerland.

What is happening now is not a small local conflict, but a hazard for the whole world.

Why does #Ukraine 🇺🇦 matter?

✅ 1ˢᵗ in Europe in proven recoverable reserves of uranium ores;
✅ 2ⁿᵈ place in Europe and 10th place in the world in terms of titanium ore reserves;

4/ag Here's a solution for "experts on everything" looking for political solutions: Central Govt should #abolish the #APMC Act and the #ECA, along with the 3 new agri laws, and leave every State to make own Agricultural laws. Then they'll be responsible/ accountable to voters!
5/ag Subject to proviso, that States cannot stop inter-state trade in agricultural goods, which framers of the constitution, correctly put under Union Govt's purview. Nor can States force CG to take any action which is responsibility of State, nor obstruct anything in Union list!

The last thing #AmericanFarmers need right now is for more food processing plants to shut down. But that trend won't end until Trump truly recognizes the dignity of agricultural work and gives immigrant food and farm workers the respect they deserve and the protection they need.
Our farmers are already on the brink. Dairy farmers are flushing their milk, corn producers are seeing closure of ethanol plants, livestock farmers are getting hit with the trade wars and coronavirus disruptions of export markets.
Now, Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda has put the entire food system at risk. The vast majority of our agricultural workforce is foreign born. You can’t protect our #FoodSupply without protecting immigrant and refugee workers—which Trump is refusing to do. I

The @worldbankgroup conducted a series of private sector stakeholder consultations with 254 private sector representatives of #Pakistani exporters in the manufacturing, agro processing, and services sectors to identify key challenges to #exports competitiveness. Image
1. Identified the need to put a cap on the gas and #electricity tariffs faced by exporting entities to cut energy costs to reverse the effect on cash flows, especially in comparison with competitor #economies (Bangladesh, India, Vietnam)
2. Need to rectify distortions in the #tax regimes; reduce #GST, #tariffs and regulatory duties on imported intermediate goods. Documentation related complexities also need to be simplified to encourage #SMEs.

Named after #MahatmaGandhi, the #MGNREGA, one of the largest #publicworks programme in the world, came about because of inadequate govt schemes that weren't meeting the demand for #rural #employment. ruralindiaonline.org/library/resour… Image
Recognizing there was persistent #unemployment in rural areas – and no #SocialSecurity mechanism for the #poor, the #MGNREGA aims to provide #wage #employment to poor #rural households, strengthen rural #livelihoods, and ensure #socialinclusion. #GandhiAt150
The Act guarantees that state govts will set up schemes to provide no less than 100 days of #employment in one financial year to every rural household whose adult members volunteer to do unskilled manual #work.

Interesting discussion re investment decisions being made by humans versus aLgORiThmS - wouldn't the latter be less influenced by cognitive biases? #GRASFI2019
Crucial question/comment from the floor - where is the evidence for impact "on the ground" from ESG and impact investing? Also need evidence on link between ESG and financial performance #GRASFI2019
Are we deluding ourselves into thinking green/sustainable finance is doing more good than it actually is? @NVJRobins1 called this "green wishing" (cf green washing) #GRASFI2019

My driver drove close to the bikers and they slowed down for me to take photos, giggled &waved😎thanks to Pooja I now know that these are #handmade #mousetraps used in #agricultural #domestic spaces ImageImageImageImage
She studied them for her environmental perception course and even bought one. Pooja said, there’s a specific indigenous people who make this out of palm leaf and wood - all locally available material. They sell these for Rs 120 - 150 ImageImage
They are also hired to install and empty them when the #rats are caught. The makers of this #traditional #local #designsolution make about Rs 10, 000/- per month. Thank you Pooja 😊with every #student I learn so much
