Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between IWAI and IPGPL on the Kaladan Multimodal Transit Transport Project

Posted by omom channel  | 

New Delhi, June 20, 2016:  The Kaladan Multimodal Transit Transport Project (KMTTP) in Myanmar was conceptualized and is being administered by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) with a view to facilitate connectivity between the mainland and the North Eastern States of the country through maritime shipping, inland waterways and roads of Myanmar. The link between North Eastern States of India and Myanmar will pave the way for enhanced trade & commerce across the border and enable cultural and social integration at the regional level. MEA had appointed Inland Waterways Authority of India (IWAI) as the Project Development Consultant (PDC) for the implementation of the Port & Inland Water Transport (IWT) component of the Kaladan Project on 19.3.2009 and by Supplementary Agreement dated 28.4.2016.

India Ports Global Private Limited (IPGPL) has been established as a Joint Venture between Kandla Port Trust and Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust for the purpose of development of ports overseas. IPGPL was asked to partner IWAI in the Kaladan project as a sub-PDC. This was suggested mainly to use and develop the capabilities of IPGPL which has been created for a specialized purpose, completing the implementation of Kaladan project within the scheduled timeframe of April 2019 and to provide relief to IWAI whose responsibilities have increased manifold due to declaration of 106 new National Waterways and implementing the ambitious ‘Jal Marg Vikas” project.

Accordingly, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between IWAI and IPGPL on 1.6.2016 for implementation of the following three additional works, which are independent of the on-going works and are estimated to cost Rs.476 crore.

(i) Container handling facilities at Sittwe & Paletwa

(ii) Operation & Maintenance of the completed works

(iii) Wrecks removed in Sittwe Port basin area

IWAI shall remain as the overall PDC to MEA for implementation of PORT & IWT component of Kaladan project.

Endangered ‘Dancing girl’ Plant Found in Mizoram

Posted by Zo Indigenous Forum  | 

Aizawl, 6 June: The Mantisia Spathulata plant, also known as the “Dancing Girl” was spotted at a lower altitude of 662 metres at Kolasib in Mizoram. This was observed by scientists at the Assam University, Silchar as a first as this species was earlier typically found only in the rocky hills of Lunglei in Mizoram at an altitude of 1,200 – 1,500 metres.

The finding was reported in the latest issue of the Journal of Threatened Taxa. In the article titled “New locality records of the Dancing Girl of Mizoram, a rare zinger species” written by by Aparajita De and Demsai Reang of ecology and environmental science department, Assam University, it is said that the species has become endangered due to several natural calamities. Thus, it is included in the national priority list for recovery published by the department of biotechnology, New Delhi, under the ministry of science and technology.

Aparajita explained the unique common name of the flower “Dancing Girl” was given because looking at a single flower carefully, we can see that the yellow corolla looks like a skirt and the two staminodes resemble the two outstretched arms of a dancing girl.
The other special features of the species includes the fact that it grows in bare rocky areas and it is not found in dense patches because it requires optimum amount of sunlight and shade to flourish.

These features were not found in the Kolasib flowers though. “We collected the species at a comparatively lower altitude – approximately 662 metres from Kolasib – which was never recorded earlier. The current study deals with the information of a new site discovered for Mantisia spathulata and its population density,” Aparajita added.

The species was growing only in a single large patch, along with other species. The size of the patch where the plants were found was approximately 30 metres in length and to 6.5 to 7 metres wide, though the plants were healthy and were regenerating very well. The study also asked for steps to be taken for its preservation. Their recommendations and suggestions included methods of conservation to be the restoration of the patch of land so that further habitat degradation is checked. In the future, the species may be grown under ex-situ conditions and reintroduced into other suitable habitats.

Taiwan legislature confirms Tsai’s formal apology to indigenous peoples

Posted by omom channel  | 

TAIPEI (The China Post/ANN) - Newly-installed Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen will extend an apology to the indigenous people on Indigenous Peoples' Day, August 1.

Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen is expected to extend a formal apology to indigenous peoples on Indigenous Peoples' Day, August 1, according to a statement by Executive Yuan Secretary-General Chen Mei-ling on Thursday (May 26).

A “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” inside the Presidential Office will be set up to handle transitional justice matters for the indigenous peoples as well, Chen said during a Judiciary and Organic Laws and Statutes Committee meeting for reviewing bills on transitional justice issues.

Council of Indigenous Peoples (CIP) Minister Icyang Parod was in attendance at the meeting as well, reported local media.

He stated that transitional justice for indigenous peoples should be undertaken through a comprehensive schedule and planning, which would emphasise the significance of acknowledging indigenous people in the overall process, as well as the unique importance of upholding transitional justice discussions for aborigines.

In the current scenario, the CIP minister proposes active formulation of the Indigenous Autonomy Act, Indigenous Peoples Land and Waters Rights Act, inclusion of indigenous peoples’ traditional customs into the nation’s law, and other regulation amendments to the Indigenous Peoples Basic Law.

The Executive Yuan will proactively push for renewed study of historical treatment of indigenous people, Chen said, including the gradual implementation of transitional justice to carry out the autonomy of indigenous groups.

“These are the country’s aims in carrying out existing policies and drafting future policy agendas,” she stated.

Handling of indigenous peoples’ transitional justice issues this time around differs from the kind that was undertaken during Taiwan’s martial law period, Chen emphasised, which according to the draft bill proposed by the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), involved actions and measures that violated the democratic nation’s constitution.

Back in late January after her landslide win in the presidential elections, Tsai told supporters in Taitung that aboriginal people have experienced rule under different authorities and foreign bodies in the past. Compared to other groups living in Taiwan, the indigenous are at a disadvantage in terms of economy, education and health. “This is oppression and inequality caused by history,” Tsai said, which is what spurred her on to make the apology.

Assembly passed Mizoram Land Bill 2016

Posted by Zo Indigenous Forum  | 

Aizawl, 23 April (TNN): The Mizoram legislature on Thursday passed the Mizoram Land (Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement) Bill, 2016, which aims to ensure fair compensation to land owners.

Land revenue and settlement minister R Romawia while moving the bill, said it was prepared to ensure that the affected families of the land acquired by the government for development projects were provided fair compensation.

He said the bill made adequate provisions for affected persons for their rehabilitation and resettlement to ensure that the cumulative outcome of compulsory acquisition was such that the affected persons became partners in the development, leading to improvement in their post-acquisition social and economic status.

Though the parliament had already enacted the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013, the state Assembly did not adopt it.
The state legislature passed the bill on the same issue as the state was granted protection under the provisions of the Article 371(G) of the Constitution of India in the matter of ownership and transfer of land.
