10:07 pm
a lot of back and forth in this trade war more tariffs coming from the united states the currency here in china the yuan has been evaluated that means goods in china are less expensive than they were say just last week so a lot of different factors at play but one thing we can be for sure of the coming months these trade figures are going to be very volatile turns in bangladesh say dengue fever risk reading at a record rates more than 2000 cases have been reported in the last 24 hours alone that raises the total number of infections to more than 29000 the government says 29 people have died from the disease bangladeshi media reports at least 60 people dead and medics are concerned about a further spread from cities to villages because a record number of female mosquitoes that carry the virus some very child really has the latest from dhaka. maglev they're struggling to cope with one of the worst dengue fever outbreak in the past 20 years the number of dead steadily increasing

a regime with the characteristics of material that have relationships with drug trafficking proven in international courts. functions like this once have been in. north korea and iran and their leaders are still in power and the population is poor suffering why do you think it's going to be different this time but i mean to all of the problems we face today are not the sanctions it's the dictatorship the reason why when israel is poor today is because the expropriated fertile land and did not grow anything in it they destroyed national production they stole productive land created fake exchange controls and internal sanctions that persecuted people that is what keeps venezuela poured the sanctions that have human rights abusers and corrupt officials as an objective are meant to pressure a dictatorship you're talking about talk about negotiations that are happening right now what what can we expect from that but if. it's
10:12 pm
a relative question what can we expect from a dictatorship nothing what can we expect of human rights abusers nothing but we can do our pressures we are implementing of being the majority of institutional pressure we could find a solution in alternative to the conflict venezuelans are living in. why though for now discards the possibility of a military intervention in spite that he says all options are on the table. 7 but government supporters say there and direct attack now and say they need to be ready for what may come they say the sanctions will not only heard the government but we increase the hardships they're already facing every day. proto rico has a new governor the 3rd in less than a week the swearing in of justice secretary wanda vasquez follows weeks of turmoil in the u.s. territory. the reports in the capital sun on. the confusion continues

a super typhoon heading towards taiwan the no good news it's cold rainy yes you say the super typhoon is actually just to strengthen into a super typhoon it can sail a subplot we've got the 2 large masses of cloud they are both typhoons this is the one though that is the super typhoon and this is super typhoon kima now we have some pretty strong winds this storm system already in fact this is the strongest it will be it should begin to weaken in the next 24 to 36 hours but still be a very powerful storm system right now because winds sustained at 240 kilometers an hour gusting to over 298 now it's moving quite quickly up tools in northwest and that is good news it's always good in these storm systems move quickly because they know therefore allowed to deposit as much rainfall as they could have moving slowly but this will still bring a huge amounts of rain so there it is it where made landfall in taiwan will pause very very close that's of northeast coast very. certainly to taipei and that's where we'll see the bulk of the rains what you will notice is as the storm
10:17 pm
continues to pull further north it will also begin support away all this rain that's been sitting across luzon afridi for about the last week so that of a double edged sword but this is good news in with the bad however the balance that now weighs a good with this because the accumulations over the next 3 days could well be over 350 millimeters and also this storm surge something else to really take into consideration with this storm this powerful moving this quickly we could have 3 meters with the storm surge very actually pushing up onshore so really it is all about the flooding concerns on the damage from those winds in the next few hours all right so we'll keep an eye out jenny thank you for that well still ahead on the al-jazeera news hour as donald trump's accused of racist rhetoric in texas immigration agents arrested hundreds in mississippi. and score tiger woods back at the p.g.a. tour playoffs but will injury derail this transfer we'll hear from a former world number one in about 20 minutes coming up.

10:19 pm

clash since. doctors in bangladesh say dengue fever is spreading at a record rates more than 2000 cases have been reported in the last 24 hours alone. while global food security is at risk if we don't change the way we use the planet's resources in a major report on land use on climate change the united nations says rising global temperatures are creating more extreme weather events such as heat waves and droughts leading to land degradation and desertification at the same time it says poor land use practices are. tribut into global warming the destruction of natural habitats to make way for livestock and conservation is responsible for about a 5th of global greenhouse gas emissions the report authors are calling for a shift to sustainable land use practices and for action to drastically cut greenhouse gas emissions and while they stop short of telling people to stop eating meat they say reducing consumption will take pressure off our planet's limited
10:21 pm
natural resources will take different and carvalho she's the global policy manager for climate and energy practice at the world while fun for nature is joining us from geneva thanks for your time with us on the news hour so a lot of important points raised in this report for you what was the takeaway message i think the takeaway message is that the way we use land matters because it impacts the climate and we also should use land as a solution or nature as a solution to so-called nature based solutions to combat the climate crisis we don't we cannot rely only on nature but we need to rely on nature to use to solve this problem we need actions in all sectors in the land sector is very important so clearly. business. as usual is not an option that's according to this report
10:22 pm
so what is the w w f doing in this regard. well we are we're working on for france and the 1st front is to work with governments and advocate for stopping the 1st station and the conversion of it can systems for restoring such eco systems for addressing and of course the way we produce food and the way we treat food and for people to look at their consumption choices because those can be made at the individual level so this is what we are working on i suppose the big question though is how people can use land more wisely to sort of a rein in global warming but the same time feed a growing population yes the report mentions that 70 to 2 percent of the land surface on the earth is already affected by human use so we
10:23 pm
need to make wise choices and good choices about how we use land to guarantee that we will have enough land that it's used to to mitigate the climate problem that it also guarantees food production and that also guarantees that biodiversity our diversity of forms of life we all have a way to live so some wise choices will have to be made we have to be able to make those choices and through your work with governments that you spoke of just a moment ago do you find that there is the will for decision makers to raise this up on their political agenda the better planned use of land. i think that the report that the i.p.c.c. released the last year the $1.00 report and now this report make it very clear that there is no option so we expect that the signal makers will make full use of the so-called nature based solutions to enhance their commitments under the pairs agreement by 2020 we need to address the climate crisis by 2020 we need
10:24 pm
to take strong action now because the window is really short we have 11 years to to at least have the c o 2 emissions so we need governments to take this very seriously and finally let me ask you if governments don't take it seriously what's at stake well if what is at stake is survival of humanity our ability to produce food then to feed everyone in the planet as this as this report state and there is also a risk to biodiversity that is highlighted in this report and also in another report by the best the panel on biodiversity that to release the report dizzee a so it's all at stake right so we thank you very much for speaking to us from geneva. now increasing drought is one of the consequences of climate change in kenya it's left more than
10:25 pm
a 1000000 people on the brink of starvation it's also causing friction between communities of herders who compete for water and pastor and many of the affected areas catherine soy reports from some guru county. analysts and gerry and her family are heading to an area in north in kenya where they've been told there's enough water and pasture for her live stock it will take them a day to walk there there's a drought in parts of kenya months of rain have just ended but weather experts say it wasn't enough and millions of people are likely to suffer was an influenza and what a shortage is and it did not rain where we were so we had to come to speak to a settlement area where my animals can survive hiders from different parts of this region are bringing their animals to areas such as my weight has rained but frequent droughts as cassidy of resources often causes conflict between harding communities many of the conflicts begin from watering points cattle markets and
10:26 pm
grazing areas like this one and it takes so little to start a fight with can spiral out of control and trigger revenge by communities. these are elders from neighboring some. ethnic groups they started peace meetings after 10 years of fighting killed hundreds of people many clueless its father was killed while trying to break up a gunfight. who was then a teenager was also shot by a stray bullet he says fighting in some areas has wasn't because of easy access to guns political interference and cattle rustling. roy went to court is dry they come here because it is green is dry we go to court and when they come here they steal our cattle and when we go there we steal their cattle in the cycle keeps repeating itself. it's a job of elders in marlow to ensure peace among neighbors every so often they come together at this highest point of the rift valley
10:27 pm
a neutral ground they discuss how to handle the large number of hiders arriving from other drought hit areas. we also started a peace market pockets and some booze who neighbors live in cohesion but those who live far from here are the ones causing problems we are also trying to talk to them those helping to keep the peace including the catholic church say those such meetings are a good start and the ethnic fighting is common in some parts of north and kenya people are moving from community owned land to individual ownership so that's going to pose a serious threat because maybe no more land to move with the lifestyle for now hardest coming to my enjoy relative safety negotiated by their elders those from distant areas are warned against starting trouble one mistake may take the communities here back to a conflict that worked so hard to avoid catherine saw al-jazeera some kenya.
