Gisements gaziers au large de Gaza: la face cachée d'une guerre

La guerre de Gaza cache-t-elle, derrière un alibi militaire, la volonté israélienne de reprendre une zone géographique permettant à l’Etat hébreu de revendiquer les gisements gaziers? Le débat avait été lancé dès la découverte des gisements sous-marins au début de ce siècle, mais la nouvelle offensive de Tsahal relance la polémique.
Voici quelques jours, le ministre israélien de la Défense, Moshe Ya’alon, avait annoncé que l’opération militaire contre le Hamas s’étendrait "par tous les moyens à notre disposition… Le prix payé par l’organisation –le Hamas- sera très lourd ". Mais, rapportait le Guardian du 9 juillet, dès 2007, juste avant l’opération militaire "Plomb Fondu" dirigée contre la bande de Gaza, le même Moshe Ya’alon s’inquiétait déjà d’une source de gaz naturel découverte en 2000 au large des côtes de Gaza.

"Annexation" of Crimea and its rich natural resources by the Black Sea could drag Ukraine’s economic development. -Experts

By E. Gurkan Abay

While Ukraine consumed 55 billion cubic meters of natural gas in 2013 -- nearly 60 percent of it imported from Russia -- between 5 and 10 trillion cubic meters of gas lie in reserves in Crimea’s offshore fields, according to Ukrainian government figures.

Resource rich countries cannot manage their wealth – report

Only 11 out of 58 countries rich in natural resources can effectively manage their wealth, according to the first of its kind report from the Revenue Watch Institute, a think tank which specializes in effective management of natural resources.
A quarter of all independent countries on planet are resource rich. The 58 states produce 85% of world’s petroleum, 90% of the diamonds and 80% of copper with total profits from their extractive sector totaling more than $2.6 trillion.
According to the Resource Governance Index (RGI), in 41 countries out of the group the extractive sector contributes a third of their GDP. And the future of these countries heavily depends on how effective they govern their resources.

UN chief calls for int'l efforts to achieve "water secure world"

UNITED NATIONS, May 21 (Xinhua)
 -- UN Secretary-General Ban Ki- moon on Tuesday called on the international community to work towards a "water secure world" as part of the global ecosystem plan noted in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and post- 2015 agenda.
"Although seemingly abundant, only a tiny amount of the water on our planet is easily available as freshwater," Ban said in a message issued here by his spokesperson to mark the International Day for Biological Diversity, which falls on May 22.
In December 2000, the UN General Assembly adopted May 22 as the International Day for Biological Diversity, to increase understanding and awareness of biodiversity issues. The theme for this year's observance is Water and Biodiversity.

Arctic Council Signs Oil Spill Response Deal ..... decision on the EU status has been deferred because of Canada’s concern....

KIRUNA, May 15 (RIA Novosti)
 – Foreign ministers from the Arctic Council’s member states have signed a legally binding agreement on preventing and responding to oil spills in the Arctic to protect the region’s waters, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday.
The treaty is “an effective tool protecting the Arctic environment at a time of active exploration of the opening Arctic deposits, and shows the firm responsibility of the Arctic states for the situation in the region,” Lavrov said at the opening of the council’s ministerial session in Sweden’s northernmost city of Kiruna. Lavrov said he “welcomed” the decision to expand the council by granting the so-called observer status to new states. China, Italy and four other Asian countries - India, Japan, South Korea and Singapore - gained observer status on the Council at a meeting on Wednesday. The Council also said it “positively” viewed the idea of granting the European Union observer status. However, a decision on the EU status has been deferred because of Canada’s concern over an EU ban on import of seal products, which came into effect in August.
