#telecommunications #infrastructure ownership is something we're going to have to somehow find a nice balance in, particularly for #submarinecables, our primary means of trans-oceanic digital communications. 🧵1/
On the one hand, it's great for #DigitalDevelopment and #digital #connectivity that more telco infra is going in. But infrastructure is expensive... 2/
So some telcos want content providers (big tech like Facebook and Google) to share the cost, which makes sense if content makes up a big chunk of the internet traffic. 🗞️🔗👉Platform content makes up 55% of internet traffic in #France #Italy #Spain. 3/ reuters.com/business/media…

We are LIVE tweeting the Raisina AMA with @DrSJaishankar and @samirsaran

Stay tuned for updates!

Watch it LIVE here:

#Raisina2022 #RaisinaDialogue @MEAIndia
.@DrSJaishankar: Three things keep me up at night — the shocks that the international order is experiencing, particularly in the past two years—the #COVID19 pandemic, #Afghanistan & #Ukraine, & the friction between the #West & #Russia, the #USA and #China

#Raisina2022 @MEAIndia
.@DrSJaishankar: You need to develop an operational matrix to respond to a changing world. In our case, especially since 2014-15, we have had greater clarity on how we engage the world—concentric circles, neighbourhood first, but also a conscious policy engaging the major powers.

Fast #import growth has overshadowed some very good news in #Pakistan. The latest release of disaggregated #trade data by @StateBank_Pak reveals that the first nine months of FY22 showed #record high #exports in real terms, since there's statistics.
Short 🧵👇 w/ more results.
1\ #exports grew by 24.8% in the first 9 months of FY22 w.r.t. same period of FY21, reaching 23.7 bn for goods and 5.2 bn for services.

#Pakistan #trade
2\ All top destinations show fast #export growth. Shipments to the #USA and to #China in particular.

Below is a long-ish thread🧵for some context to this amazing meme from @DrArialShogren and @thats_me_del_p.

TL;DR -- Our words matter. They shape and bias our understanding of the systems we study.

[1/n]
First -- I'm blessed to have great colleagues @UaDeptBSC who put up with my shenanigans.

This conversation started with me giving @thats_me_del_p a hard time about a small grant proposal. The title mentioned "drivers of intermittence."

[2/n] Image
I'm not a big fan of umbrella terms like #sustainability, #connectivity, and now #intermittence.

In #interdisciplinary teams, negotiating a common language is difficult. I actually think its often MORE difficult when we share common terms with slightly diverging definitions

How do we steward #forests & #borderlands in a time of human upheaval & migration? Not by building border walls. Our letter @ScienceMagazine about how Poland’s planned wall would threaten transboundary #Białowieża Forest @MZmihorski @UNESCO @BonnConvention science.org/doi/10.1126/sc…
Transboundary frontiers are an emerging conservation priority as they often overlap #biodiversity hotspots & are threatened by construction of border infrastructure. Neighboring countries must co-steward wildlife that cross manmade lines @EcologyJiajia sciencedirect.com/science/articl…
We know from research on the US-Mexico border that walls do not deter people but do impede wildlife, including low-flying birds like pygmy owls. Barriers are an increasing global trend that fragment #connectivity of habitats & populations @ljevanso academic.oup.com/bioscience/art…

Well, breaking news will now keep coming every day ahead of #COP26 but this one could have MASSIVE implications for global energy markets & #fossilfuel demand: #China announces first details of its carbon neutrality framework aiming at #netzero by 2060 1/5 gov.cn/zhengce/2021-1…
The document introduces several consumption "peaks": peak #coal by 2025, peak #oil during the 15th 5-yr plan (2026-2030). Food for thought for #China's largest oil suppliers #SaudiArabia, #Russia, #Iraq, #Angola, #Brazil; and coal suppliers #Russia, #Indonesia, #Australia. 2/5
Energy #efficiency is one of the highest priorities. 2025 target is to reduce energy intensity of GDP by 13.5% compared to 2020 (note, the baseline is the COVID year)! New standards and certification to be introduced for #steel & other energy-intensive industries. 3/5

Pumped to share our latest publication @SciReports Identifying structural #connectivity priorities in eastern Paraguay’s fragmented Atlantic Forest @ChicagoState @FieldMuseum @RhodesCollege @TexasTech researchgate.net/publication/35… ImageImageImage
Less than one-third of the region is forested, and the remaining forest largely consists of isolated remnants with
potentially disrupted connectivity for forest fauna.
We used a graph theory approach to identify those
forest remnants that are important in maintaining landscape structural connectivity for mammals
in this fragmented forest.

In the context of #Africa Day 2021, what's #Pakistan's untapped #export potential with that region? #thread 👇👇👇
We have recently estimated #Pakistan's export potential at about US$88 billion. The untapped portion of that is close to US$61 billion.

On Thursday, US @SFRCdems will vote on a "Strategic Competition Act" with China.

On #geoeconomic front, it aims to pull together some FP, #connectivity practices into one China-centric strategy and also proposes concrete policy measures.

Some highlights [long thread]
/1
101: $15mil/year for US embassies to hire expert who helps interested businesses with supply chain diversification/management away from China
/2
113: Global infrastructure needs closer monitoring, gov involvement. The Global Infrastructure Coordinating Committee (GICC) pushed as an important coordination tool

With the Three Seas Initiative summit approaching, it's high time for a recap on why 12 CEE nations joined efforts to develop #Connectivity, and why 🇩🇪🇺🇸🇨🇳 got so interested in it

Here's a thread on the main points of our latest @PIE_NET_PL report on #3SI [link at the end]

1/
3SI is a political platform of 12 EU states, aimed at developing intra-regional connectivity (transport, energy, digital, people), complementing existing EU frameworks. It's got its own investment fund, got high-level 🇺🇸🇩🇪 endorsements etc. (find more details in our report)

2/
CEE was the fastest growing EU region after the 2004 enlargement. 3SI's share in EU GDP rose from 15,2% to 19,2%. With a flood of FDIs, it became EU's industrial backbone, esp. crucial for Germany (the 3SI region generates 19,8% of 🇩🇪's trade, more than any major partner)

Biodiverse cities = healthy cities but how do we encourage wildlife to thrive?
#urbanEcology can help us decide where to prioritise resources for nature.🌿
In 2018 we showed how @cityofmelbourne can use #connectivity theory as a planning tool: tinyurl.com/y5av3uyw

All animals need to move for the same reasons as people🍔🏕️💑
But resources are fragmented across city-scapes, with barriers in between.
🗾
Ecological connectivity quantifies how easy it is for an animal to move around the landscape & where to place new connections.
3 #SCBMelb20
We use Spanowicz & Jaeger 2019 method to quantify the degree of habitat fragmentation across a landscape.
Habitat patches are connected if they are within a reasonable distance for that animal to cross, AND are not separated by a barrier. 🛣️🏫

Excited to share a new paper from my PhD out in Biological Conservation!

Does higher probability of wildlife movement (as modeled thru connectivity) correlate with patterns of conflict? 🐘🇧🇼🌱

We know when people farm near high-use elephant pathways more crop-raiding incidents occur there. Does this pattern hold even beyond paths, where areas with higher connectivity/higher probability of movement across the landscape see more conflict? 2/7 Aerial view of elephants
