Why Israel Matters to India

“The Israeli cabinet approved a 23-page document continuing scores of bilateral measures and a budget of Rs 514 crore – a bigger sum than Israel has ever set aside for China, Africa and Latin America combined.”

 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu will discuss a host ofcooperative deals in defence, agriculture, trade, diplomacy and water management during the former’s ongoing visit to the Middle Eastern country. Narendra Modi is the first Indian Prime Minister to visit theJewish homeland.

“Ahead of the visit, both countries have prepared a roadmap of joint economic undertakings,” The Haaretz reported on June 29, 2017. “The Israeli cabinet approved a 23-page document continuing scores of bilateral measures and a budget of 280 million shekels (about $79.6 million or Rs 514 crore) – a bigger sum than Israel has ever set aside for China, Africa and Latin America combined. No fewer than 11 ministries were involved in preparing the programme.”
Here are five things that define the India-Israel relationship.

Defence

India is Israel’s top destination for arms exports, buying 41% of export between 2012 and 2016, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, an independent global conflict and arms-research institute.

Israel is India’s third-largest source of arms, with a 7.2% share of imports between 2012 and 2016, next to the US (14%) and Russia (68%).
during the Kargil war in 1999 when India faced a shortage.

Diplomacy

Several ministerial and high-level official visits to Israel preceded Modi’s tour. These included visits by then Home Minister LK Advani in 2000, former President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam in 2008, Home Minister Rajnath Singh in 2014, President Pranab Mukherjee in 2015 and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in 2016.

Three Indian naval ships, destroyer INS Mumbai, frigate INS Trishul and tanker INS Aditya, made a goodwill visit at the Haifa port in May 2017 to mark 25 years of full diplomatic relations between the two countries.

Agriculture

An Indo-Israel agriculture action plan for 2015-18 is operational, and 15 of the proposed 26 centres of excellence in agriculture are being developed in India with Israel’s help to showcase the latest technology to Indian farmers.

Phase-I (2010-12) and phase-II (2012-15) of the agreement are complete, according to a reply to the Lok Sabha.

India has benefited from Israeli technologies in horticulture mechanisation, protected cultivation, orchard and canopy management, nursery management, micro-irrigation and post-harvest management, particularly in Haryana and Maharashtra.

There was a five-to 10-fold increase in crop yields with an accompanying 65% reduction in use of water and noticeable decrease in the use of pesticides and fertilisers, according to a December 2014 report on the Indo-Israel Agriculture Project.

Water Management

On June 28, 2017, the Union cabinet approved a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Israel on the National Campaign for Water Conservation in India.

Technologically-adept Israel has developed water-management technologies, located as it is in a semi-arid region with limited sources of fresh drinking water.

India and Israel had earlier signed a MoU on water resources management and development cooperation in November 2016.

Trade

Israel was India’s 38th-largest trading partner, with trade of $5.02 billion (Rs 33,634 crore) in 2016-17, down 18% over 2012-13. The trade balance stood in India’s favour at $1.10 billion (Rs 7,370 crore) in 2016-17.

Mineral fuels and oils are India’s leading export to Israel, worth $1.01 billion in 2016-17.

Trade in diamonds accounts for nearly 54% of the bilateral trade. Nearly 40 diamond dealers from India have opened offices at the Israeli diamond exchange in Ramat-Gan. Some of these dealers have been active in Israel for nearly 30-40 years.

“Israel has been giving key weapons systems to India, including missiles; it has given us those weapons which we could not directly buy from the US for ideological reasons; cooperation in counter-terrorism from information sharing to techniques/doctrine of counter terrorism,” Sahasrabudde said. “It is also an important source of foreign investment, if tapped with care. The visit of the Indian PM will indicate that New Delhi has come out of the old mindset.”

OUR OCEAN OUR FUTURE

World Oceans Day is a global day of ocean celebration and collaboration on JUNE 8 for a better future. This site serves as the central coordinating platform for World Oceans Day, with free resources and ideas for everyone – no matter where you live – to help expand the reach and impact of World Oceans Day on June 8 and year-round.

Theme for World Oceans Day 2017:

Our Oceans, Our Future

This day has been celebrated unofficially since its original proposal in 1992 by Canada’s International Centre for Ocean Development (ICOD) and the Ocean Institute of Canada (OIC) at the Earth Summit – UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.[1] The Brundtland Commission, i.e. the World Commission on Environment and Development, provided the inspiration for a global oceans day. The 1987 Brundtland Report noted that the ocean sector lacked a strong voice compared to other sectors. At the first world Oceans Day in 1992, the objectives were to move the oceans from the sidelines to the centre of the intergovernmental and NGO discussions and policy and to strengthen the voice of ocean and coastal constituencies world wide.

World Oceans Day was officially recognized by the United Nations in late 2008.[2] The Ocean Project, working in partnership with the World Ocean Network, Association of Zoos and Aquariums, and many other partners in its network of 2,000 organizations, has been promoting World Oceans Day since 2002 and led a three-year global petition movement to secure official UN recognition. World Oceans Day events are celebrated on June 8, the closest weekend, the week, and the month of June.

 

Purpose for celebrating ocean day

World Oceans Day is an annual observation to honor, help protect, and conserve the world’s oceans. The ocean provides us with many resources and services including oxygen, climate regulation, food sources, medicine, and more. World Oceans Day also provides a unique opportunity to take personal and community action to conserve the ocean and its resources.

WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY 2017 (I’M WITH NATURE):-

5TH  June of every year is celebrated as world environment day.  This day was started by United Nation to protect the environment from the environment evils like global warming and pollution  in 1974,

After then this campaign is being run globally. The aim of this campaign is spread awareness issues like wastage and losses of food, deforestation, increasing global warming and so many.

The way of celebrating this day is unique itself like it is being celebrated according to a particular theme and slogan.

This year the theme and slogan for World Environment Day 2017 is

“Connect with Nature on World environment day”

Excess deforestation and pollution result as nature disbalance.  So we have to make it balanced again by planting more and more tree, and to motivate people to plant more and more tree to save our earth.

World Environment Day Quotes:-

  • Thank God men cannot fly, and lay waste the sky as well as the earth. – Henry David Thoreau
  • Harmony with land is like harmony with a friend; you cannot cherish his right hand and chop off his left. – Aldo Leopold
  • If we do not permit the earth to produce beauty and joy, it will in the end not produce food, either. – Joseph Wood Krutch
  • Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed. – Mahatma Gandhi
  • The environment is everything that isn’t me”. – Albert Einstein
  • “We won’t have a society if we destroy the environment”. – Margaret Mead

“Connecting People to Nature”

 

The theme for this environment day is “Connecting  People to Nature”, implores us to get outdoors and into nature, to appreciate its beauty and its importance, and to take forward the call to protect the earth that we share. This year’s theme invites you to think about how we are part of nature and how intimately we depend on it. It challeneges us to find fun and exciting ways to experience and cherish this vital relationship.

Nature’s gifts are often hard to value in monetary terms. Like clean air, they are often taken for granted, at least until they become scarce. However, economists are developing ways to measure

the multi-trillion-dollar worth of many so-called ‘ecosystem services’, from insects pollinating fruit trees to the leisure, health and spiritual benefits of a hike up a valley.

 

The man is both creature and molder of his environment, which gives him physical sustenance and affords him the opportunity for intellectual, moral, social and spiritual growth. In the long and tortuous evolution of the human race on this planet a stage has been reached when, through the rapid acceleration of science and technology, man has acquired the power to transform his environment in countless ways and on an unprecedented scale.
