  • Jeffrey Frankel says a multilateral climate change agreement is feasible. (Link fixed.)
  • No avoiding the pun: Asia's water infrastructure is under pressure.
  • Having bagged Tom Barnett recently, it's only fair to praise his excellent critique of Obama's Africa speech.
  • More geopolitical ructions from the GFC: Iceland is asking to join the EU.
  • Signs of economic recovery in Thailand?
  • The UN estimates there are 27 million slaves in the world. Assorted links here.
  • India's first indigenous nuclear submarine may be unveiled next weekend. (H/t Nosint.)
