Indias growing population and recent problems with coal can lead to a power crisis but we can overcome that with the nuclear deal I have initiated and dual use technology We are even ready to offer

News Equip bureaucrats to mitigaterather than takerisks There is a widespread perception that decision-making systems in the bureaucracyat all levelshave become slow and inefficient While public perception is linked to a multidimensional realityit will be useful to look at these issues within a framework that focuses on the commonly held belief that even good decision-makers are no longer willing to take risks and that the passing of the buck and abdication of responsibility are reasons for the poor quality of decision-making This frameworkhoweverdoes not include cases where the decision-maker is fundamentally ill-motivated Any analysis of the risk involved in decision-making needs to begin by defining it Herethe risk is that the decision may be wrong; and we broaden it by including a situation where there is a widespread perception to this effect It goes without saying that if the risk is to be defined assayadversely affecting ones career advancementthe results of the analysis will be quite different thoughof courseequally illuminating With respect to wrong decision-makingany analysis would reveal that some of the factors contributing to it are inadequate knowledgeparticularly of the techno-economic-social-environmental interfaces; lack of clarity of the time framewhether short termmedium term or long term; an understanding of the public purpose for which the private sector is a stakeholder; the possibility of crossfire in a corporate warfare situation; simultaneous media coverage hindering decision-making processes andfinallythe interface of Parliament and the courts or audit in relation to accountability incidentally impinging on decision-making in an unconnected matter The recent cases related to the allocation of natural resourcesminingdefence acquisitionamong otherscan be analysed from this perspective It is sometimes wrongly postulated that in such a situation it is necessary that key decision-makers are selected for their risk-taking abilityand that such risk-taking should be encouraged In such circumstancesas in any fog of war situationa high proportion of decisions could inevitably be perceived as wrong What is really needed is to ensure that decision-makers know how to mitigatethat is reducerisk and then manage the residual risk as best they canusing their manifest expertise Broadlyrisk-mitigation would involve risk-allocation to or risk-sharing with technical and regulatory agencies Here risk-allocation and risk-sharing must be distinguished from buck-passing by ensuring that the responsibilities of the partners are based on the respective management or technical domain expertise; by developing and using systems and institutions to generatemanage and analyse techno-economic data; by creating more transparency in the system and disclosure from those in the higher echelons of decision-making; andfinallyby fostering an informed stakeholder community of expertsmediacivil society organisationsindustry or sector associations A little reflection would show that the space we have created for ourselves for risk-mitigation is clearly insufficient and is a major reason why residual risk is still so high Additionallywe may not have created enough capacity for residual risk-management The problem is compounded by the fact that the decision-maker is already immersed in a risk-averse environmentwhere even normal decision-making is often subject to prolongedrepeated or intense scrutinysometimes by people with inadequate knowledge of the relevant domain; where potential conflict-of-interest situations are embedded or non-level playing fields are created; or where analytical tools are used unpredictably (for instancelegal instead of economicor social instead of environmental) In such a situationwhen residual risk is high and managing risks require special skills that are in short supplywhat is really required is to reduce risk-aversion at the systemic level rather than fire-fight at the situation level What can be done to reduce risk-aversion and ensure that residual risks can be well managed Each sector will need to work its own way through the problembut generic solutions include a few key factors Oneencourage independent and semi-independent advisory bodiestechno-economic think-tankspolicy research institutionssector regulatory bodies that can provide considered and attributable consultancies to departmentsparliamentary committeescourts and civil society organisations Twocreate internal institutional units in technical and regulatory

English talent should not be used an excuse for the country’s recent woes on the international stage according to Kevin Keegan England have suffered a catalogue of failures at major tournaments most recently exiting in the group stage of the 2014 World Cup and to Iceland at Euro 2016 Though Gareth Southgate’s side qualified for next year’s finals in Russia with a 1-0 victory over Slovenia on Thursday the nature of the performance and many of those that went before it during the campaign provoked trepidation rather than excitement about England’s prospects next year Much has been made of the relative lack of world class players available to Southgate and his predecessors but Keegan who managed England at the 2000 European Championship but quit shortly afterwards says the influx of overseas players should not be blamed for stifling home-grown talent “It’s difficult with young players” Keegan said at a global summit in London hosted by Qatar’s Aspire Academy on Friday “There is a terrible feeling in England that the young players are not being given a chance But I think the truth is they are not good enough at the moment “They have to look at themselves and say ‘why can’t I get into the first team Why are they bringing players from Argentina Uruguay and Spain Serbia” Keegan said managers should also be willing to play young players — saying the best way for them to become top internationals is to learn from experienced players around them “They have to be good enough to start with but if they are there is only so much coaching you can do” he said “Don’t forget the value of looking and learning from an experienced player The best way for them to learn and improve is by looking at the dedication of the top players the way they train and you find the key It’s
