1. We have come out with our grand report titled :

"The BRI Status: A Grand Report" on Its Present and Future.

Here is a thread on the same.
#BRI #China


@ShawnG927 @jenny_kjacobs @tiffanymeier_ @NoCCPGenocide @UMM1776 The status of the Belt and ...
2. "The #BRI Status: A Grand Report on Its Present and Future" sheds light on numerous challenges faced by BRI like:
cost overruns,
environmental damage,
funding issues,
repeated delays,
lack of progress,
and poor quality of development.
@Santos4Congress Image
3. According to our investigation, 62.8% of the countries that have joined the #BRI are #developing countries, while around 17% are #developed countries.

This suggests that the BRI is primarily focused on developing countries.

@Irek_K Saw what you said regarding the Canada Disability Benefit today. Why are the Liberals being so tight-lipped regarding this benefit? You speak about its urgency, but you've yet to reveal details regarding eligibility, amounts, or even a timeline.
Disabled Canadians & Families of those with #pwd cannot afford to wait 3 years for the "consultation" you wanted to do in the 2021 Budget. Has that study even fully started, by the way? You brought up the DIAP again, is that part of the study or a separate thing?
In addition, you mention how this will help "hundreds of thousands". When you have around 40% of 6 MILLION Canadians living with a disability in poverty, hearing that this might go to so few scares me as a Disabled Canadian, despite the fact I'm currently "able" enough to work.

1/ U.S. #energy policy is in serious need of a rethink. Energy policy is not just climate policy, it's #economic policy and it's #foreignpolicy. Our European allies' dependence on #Russian gas supplies is geopolitical malfeasance.…
2/ For decades, the U.S. was reliant on energy supplies from the Middle East, which dictated our foreign policy decisions in the region. The #shale revolution provided a brief, decade-long reprieve from the mercy of #OPEC.
3/ But rather than use our energy abundance as a geopolitical and national/economic security tool, we are ceding power back to those whose national interests are not aligned with those of the U.S.

I’ve been thinking about a recent change to the Environmental Impact Assessment Regs and wondering why there has not been much publicity around the fact that Minister @BarbaraCreecy_ of @environmentza has quietly given communities a #RightToSayNo to mining on their land.
Before the amendment, mining companies had only to *consult* landowners on environmental impacts of planned mining on their land (no *consent* was required). Here is what Reg 39 of the #EIA Regulations used to look like:
Last month, changes were made to these Regs and the exception for prospecting, exploration & extraction was removed! That means landowners and people in control of land (like the #Xolobeni community) would now have to give consent for any applications for enviro authorisation!

- Over the past few years, the #government has proposed to #amend several #environmental #laws and create entirely #new ones.
- The government has also proposed very large #industrial and #developmental projects which would effectively ruin the environment of the areas. [1/10]
#KenBetwa #River Linking #Project
This project would drown almost the entirety of the #PannaNationalPark, a richly biodiverse national park, hosting tigers, leopards, and even critically-endangered #vultures.

For each #Province and #Territory in #Canada, here is the help that was offered to those living with #disabilities. This will include the #Federal help offered as well as any hoops #PWDs may have needed to jump through to get it and whether CERB was clawed back or not.
This is based on my own research, and if anyone sees anything I missed or may have gotten wrong please let me know.
Let's start with #Yukon
According to several articles, eligible families on #disability supports we're to get up to $400 to help with costs until August. Unknown what eligibility was.
#CERB was exempt from clawbacks.

சூழலியல் தாக்க மதிப்பீடு (Environment Impact Assessment)
2020ம் ஆண்டு தொடங்கியது முதலே கொரோனாவைத் தவிர வேறெந்த பிரச்சினையும் கண்ணுக்குத் தெரியவில்லை. இந்நிலையில், நாம் கவனிக்காமல் விட்ட ஆபத்துகளில் ஒன்றாக சூழலியல் தாக்க மதிப்பீட்டு வரைவு 2020 இருக்கிறது 1/1

கொரோனா ஊரடங்கால் உலகத்தின் சூழலியல் வெகுவாக சீரடைந்து வந்த நிலையில், இந்தியாவின் சூழலியலைக் கண்டுகொள்ளாமல், முதலீட்டை முன்னிலைப்படுத்தும் விதமான சூழலியல் தாக்க மதிப்பீட்டு வரைவு வெளியாகியுள்ளது என்ற விவகாரம் பரவலாகி வருகிறது 1/2
#EIA என்றால் என்ன?

சுரங்கம், தொழிற்சாலைகள், அணை போன்ற தொழில் வளர்ச்சித் திட்டங்களால், ஒரு நாட்டின் சூழலியல் வளங்கள் பலியாகிவிடக் கூடாது என்ற நோக்கத்தில் உருவாக்கப்படும் முன்னெச்சரிக்கை வழிகாட்டுதல் சூழலியல் தாக்க மதிப்பீடு (Environment Impact Assessment) ஆகும் 1/3

For fast environment clearances (EC), India’s environment ministry issued (Jan 2019) standard EC conditions for non-coal mining projects. Now @prakashjavadekar has asked an expert panel to make them practically implementable, monitorable & feasible & minimise number of conditions
Now, on @PrakashJavdekar direction, an expert panel of environment ministry on June 12 discussed a report of QCI (Quality Council of India)/ National Accreditation Board for Education & Training (NABET) that analysed the standard EC conditions.
The panel said that EC conditions shall be reduced to extent possible & shall be monitorable & quantifiable for effective compliance. It noted that wherever forest or wildlife issue is involved, forest & wildlife clearance "shall be in place" before project is appraised for EC.

Nugget from 2019 @StateDept Country Reports on Terror re #Afghanistan & enemy-initiated attacks

"The enemy-initiated attack trend in 2019 defied its usual seasonal pattern; while in most years, such attacks decrease in cold-weather months, they remained consistently high..."
Earlier this year, @SIGARHQ criticized US Forces-#Afghanistan and @ResoluteSupport for refusing to provide update data on #EIA (enemy-initiated attacks)…
At the time, @ResoluteSupport officials defended their decision, calling data on enemy-initiated attacks “now a critical part of deliberative inter-agency discussions regarding ongoing political negotiations between the US & the Taliban”

We have shared in our piece how OIL received exemption from conducting a public hearing in #DibruSaikhowa more than once. But online availability of information on this environmental clearance of OIL deserves a special mention. So here is a thread on it.
A simple search on the website of Parivesh for EC to exploration in #DibruSaikhowa by OIL produces the below row. When we clicked on the ToR folder it was dated Feb 28, 2008. Since a ToR expires in 3 (max 4) years, it left us perplexed. How come this ToR was valid till recently?
We went through the ToR. There are several projects of OIL which have been granted clearance between 2008 and now. We couldn’t figure out for the longest of time, which project this ToR belonged to. It definitely was not for the drilling clearance granted in May 2020!
