Protecting One of Mexico's Most Diverse Habitats (Episode #442)

KQED World: Sat, Oct 27, 2012 -- 6:00 AM

PROTECTING ONE OF MEXICO'S MOST DIVERSE HABITATS - The Sierra Madre Oriental is one of Mexico's most diverse natural habitats. But climate change and unsustainable forestry practices are threatening the ecosystem. Parts of the mountain range have been under official protection for decades but that hasn't made much of a difference: the area is large and difficult to control, and it's impossible to stop people who live in the region from cultivating food crops. Mexico's National Commission on Protected Natural Areas is bringing a new focus to the task of protecting biodiversity.

Preserving South Africa's Traditional Music (Episode #441)

KQED World: Sat, Oct 20, 2012 -- 6:00 AM

Dizu Plaatjies is working to turn this around. Dizu Plaatjies teaches African music performance at the University of Cape Town. He also founded the Ibuyambo Music and Art Exhibition Center, which aims to keep traditional culture alive in the modern day.

India's Sterilization Lottery (Episode #440)

KQED World: Sat, Oct 13, 2012 -- 6:00 AM

EVERY TICKET A WINNER - INDIA'S STERILIZATION LOTTERY: India's population has already reached 1.22 billion people and it's constantly growing. While birth rates among the new middle class in urban areas have diminished considerably, large families in the countryside are still the norm. In an effort to reduce birth rates, especially in rural regions, authorities recently introduced a program that's likely to raise eyebrows in other parts of the world. Women are being offered the chance to win big rewards by opting for sterilization. In the state of Rajasthan, women receive 600 rupies (about 9 euros) as soon as they've undergone the procedure. In addition they are automatically entered in a lottery. The prizes range from televisions, kitchen appliances to even cars. Offering incentives to volunteer for sterilization has fuelled plenty of criticism, but India's health authorities say the campaign is a big success.

American Drought Rings Famine Alarms Overseas (Episode #439)

KQED World: Sat, Oct 6, 2012 -- 6:00 AM

The Global Food Crisis - What's behind it? To feed the world the food industry is still dependent on good weather. Poor harvests caused by droughts have sent prices for wheat and corn rocketing. As a result, many people can no longer afford to buy even basic foodstuffs. Staple foods are becoming increasingly expensive. Wealthy western countries are largely unaffected by the problem but the developing world is badly hit. People there are having to spend most of their income on food, and many can no longer afford even the basics. Meager harvests are not the only factors driving up food prices. We look at the roots of the problem.
