  1. Covid-19 – Moderna says its vaccine is 94.5% effective – Drugmaker Moderna has announced that its coronavirus vaccine was 94.5% effective, based on an early look at the results from its large, continuing study. Researchers said the results were better than they had dared to imagine. But the vaccine will not be widely available for months, probably not until spring. Moderna is the second company to report preliminary data on an apparently successful vaccine, offering hope in a surging pandemic that has infected more than 53 million people worldwide and killed more than 1.2 million. Pfizer, in collaboration with BioNTech, was the first, reporting a week ago that its vaccine was more than 90% effective. Moderna also said its vaccine has a longer shelf life under refrigeration and at room temperature than previously reported, which should make it easier to store and use.
  2. Polity & Governance – Winter session of Parliament unlikely amid rising COVID cases – The winter session of Parliament that usually commences by last week of November is unlikely to be held due to the high number of COVID-19 cases in Delhi. As per parliamentary records, there have only been three instances in the past of the winter session not being held — in 1975, 1979 and 1984. The Cabinet Committee on Political Affairs (CCPA) meets to decide the dates for the session and the announcement has to be made giving Members of Parliament at least two weeks’ notice. So far, the CCPA has not met and the government is mulling over combining the Budget session of Parliament, which usually begins on February 1, and the winter session.
  3. Economy – A day after RCEP, Jaishankar slams trade pacts, globalisation – India has allowed other countries ‘unfair’ trade and manufacturing advantages “in the name of openness”, External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar asserted in a speech criticising globalisation on November 16. Speaking just a day after the 15-nation Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) was signed, Mr. Jaishankar was particularly scathing of trade agreements. Without directly referring to the RCEP, the trading bloc that India decided to walk out of a year ago, Mr. Jaishankar said that the government had decided to move away from trading arrangements, towards an “Aatmanirbhar Bharat” (self-reliant India) policy where India could decide the rules and consolidate “comprehensive national power”.
  4. Economy – ‘China factory output faster than expected’ – China’s factory output rose faster than expected in October and retail sales sped up, as the recovery from its COVID-19 slump gathered momentum. Industrial production climbed 6.9% in October from a year earlier, in line with September’s gain and faster than the 6.5% rise expected in a Reuters poll of analysts. China’s industrial sector has staged an impressive turnaround from the pandemic paralysis seen earlier this year, helped by resilient exports. Now, with the coronavirus largely under control in China, consumers are opening up their wallets again in a further boost to activity.
  5. Survey/Research – ‘Made-in-China items find favour with 29% buyers’ – Chinese products continued to find favour among more than a fourth of Indian households as they offered higher ‘value for money’ even as a majority of respondents chose to skip products made in China. In a survey by LocalCircles, which registered 14,000 responses, 71% respondents said that they “consciously did not buy made-in-China items”, while 29% said they had bought made-in-China products this festival season. Asked what prompted them to choose Chinese products, 66% respondents who purchased made-in-China products said they did so because they found the products offered ‘value for money’, while 13% chose them for their “uniqueness”. Though 71% consumers did not buy made-in-China products this festive season, many of those who did, ended up doing so because of lower prices.
  6. Economy – Power demand grew 7.8% in first half of Nov. – India’s power consumption grew 7.8% to 50.15 billion units (BU) in the first half of November 2020, signalling a rise in economic activity. Power consumption was recorded at 46.52 BU during November 1-15 in 2019. For all of November 2019, power consumption was 93.94 BU. Thus, the extrapolation of half-month data clearly indicates that power consumption may witness year-on-year growth for the third month in a row, according to experts. Diesel sales in the country fell 5% in the first half of November from a year earlier, after rising for the first time in eight months in October. However, diesel sales was 7% higher month-on-month. Between November 1 and 15, diesel consumption was 2.86 million tonnes, down from 3.01 million tonnes a year earlier but higher than the 2.65 million tonnes in the first half of October.
  7. Economy – WPI quickens to 8-month high – India’s wholesale price inflation quickened to the highest level in eight months, reaching 1.48% in October 2020 as per provisional data, compared with 0% in October 2019 and 1.32% in September 2020. The WPI Food Index inflation slowed from 6.92% in September 2020 to 5.78% in October, 2020, with vegetables inflation cooling down to 25.23% from 36.5% in September. Inflation in potato prices touched 107.7%, while onions registered 8.5% inflation in October. The WPI for August has been revised upwards from 0.16% as reported earlier to 0.41%. October’s numbers suggest that this trend has strengthened with manufactured group inflation hitting a 19-month high of 2.1%, and core inflation accelerated to the highest level in 18 months at 1.7%.
  8. Economy – BPCL gets 3-4 bids; Reliance skips, no big players in race – The government has received ‘multiple’ bids for buying out its stake in India’s second-biggest fuel retailer BPCL. However, billionaire Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Industries as well as supermajors Saudi Aramco, BP and Total did not make a bid. Reliance Industries, which was considered a potential bidder as BPCL would have added 22% fuel market share to its fledgling retail business and made it the nation’s number one oil refiner. However, it did not put in an expression of interest (EoI) at the close of the deadline.
  9. World – Islamabad blocked off over anti-France protest – Pakistan authorities sealed off a major road into Islamabad for a second day on November 16 as a far-right religious party held fresh anti-France protests. Around a thousand protesters gathered at the roadblock preventing them from entering the capital, a day after 5,000 people rallied in neighbouring Rawalpindi. Pakistan has seen small and scattered protests in recent weeks after French President Emmanuel Macron condemned the beheading of a teacher by an extremist at a school near Paris.
  10. World – Sri Lanka to unveil crucial budget today amid virus – Sri Lanka’s ruling Rajapaksa administration will present its maiden Budget on November 17, amid a relentless second wave of COVID-19 that hit the island nation in October. PM Mahinda Rajapaksa, also the Minister of Finance, will unveil the Budget for the year 2021 in Parliament. The Budget assumes significance, coming amid a devastating global pandemic. Sri Lanka’s foreign reserves are under enormous strain in the wake of mounting external debt — the government recently repaid $4.2 billion for this year — while its export and tourism sectors, and worker remittances from abroad, have been severely impacted. The budget comes a year after President Gotabaya Rajapaksa rose to power, and at a time when analysts have warned of a GDP contraction of possibly up to 10%, a low that the country did not experience even during its civil war years.

3.1 We need integrated joint approaches to combat climate change

  • Highlights – 
  • The UN Environment Program (UNEP) has called for integrated approaches to help save nature and combat climate change.
  • In a recently released report, the UNEP has said that climate change and biodiversity loss are twin crises that should be tackled together, with ambition and integrated action.
  • The report shows that coordinating priority areas to conserve both biodiversity and carbon stocks is key to meeting ambitious goals for both nature and climate.
  • The report highlights areas where global conservation action can deliver the most to achieve biodiversity goals and mitigate climate change.
  • The study shows that when prioritizing areas for conservation, accounting for biodiversity and carbon together can secure 95 per cent of the biodiversity benefits and nearly 80 per cent of the carbon stocks that could be obtained by prioritizing either value alone.
  • It finds that conserving 30 percent of land in strategic locations could safeguard 500 gigatonnes of carbon stored in vegetation and soil and reduce the extinction risk of nearly nine out of 10 threatened terrestrial species.
  • The findings show that greater ambition and action are needed to bend the curve of biodiversity loss and greenhouse gas emissions.
