In Asia, the number of piracy and armed robbery incidents in the Strait of Malacca increased by more than 400% YTD 2018 to 2019. Look for increased maritime collaboration & coordination. The question is: who will lead?, which is the same question asked about Africa’s Gulf of Guinea.
With little global interest focused on them Lithuania’s parliament sustained a veto by the country’s president by one (01) vote, that would have lowered the parliamentary party threshold from 7% to 3%, thus reducing the risk of fragmentation. This is worth unpacking.
Here is another danger sign, the average global ocean temperature for the past five (05) years have been the warmest on record. Implications, in addition to melting polar ice, it also changes migratory patterns of maritime mammals and fish, which could result on migration on land as food sources shift.
In Brazil’s globally critical rainforest, deforestation increased more than 80% YTD 2018-2019, meaning that more than 9000 square kms were deforested which is roughly equivalent of clear cutting the entire state of Maine in the US.
