a 3rd of them are children people and stateless for a lot of reasons in many cases it's because of ethnic and religious discrimination that's the case with the muslim or hindu from in mar the un describes them as the most persecuted minority in the world cup heiler is live from bangkok where this conference will be happening so what is on the agenda scott. michel today so far what really has taken up the bulk of the agenda for the 2 day conference are workshops and a lot of what's being exchanged in these workshops are those leaders statelessness from 15 nations here in asia in the pacific to talk about best practices what has worked for them what they still need to work on and they're sharing this and also what they detail working with other countries and how that has really kind of pushed forward with the statements this issue so that is what they've been doing most of the parts most of the day here today what will happen in the coming hours
6:15 pm
today and then also on friday is that they'll gather those best practices and they'll take that with them to a larger meeting a bigger meeting high level meeting in october in geneva where the united nations will sponsor another state this is a conference and that's where this region will share now one thing that's very important about this region when it comes to stateless people that is more than half of the world's stateless people are here in asia so obviously the input and these discussions are very important when it when the united nations looks to tackle this issue globally shelves so when you talk about tackling this issue what are some potential solutions to this that have been identified. well one thing they do you touched on michel and that is that you know there's discrimination the religious ethnic and also gender discrimination that are laws that are part of laws of some of these nations so obviously they say here if there's political will to update those laws so that they are not there anymore so
6:16 pm
there is not kind of legally sanctioned discrimination going on in these nations that doesn't recognize these ethnic groups in these nations that they're there stateless then they can make some progress but again it really and that's what's coming out from the meetings here today what really boils down to is the political will of the governments of these nations to make that change and to change those laws so that that sanction legally sanctioned discrimination is wiped from the books or shot all right scott ivan thank thank you still had on al-jazeera toys terrorists and trade bill examined all time strategy on u.s. manufacturing. and a report from on the latest strike against the president's austerity measures.

then one day i was hospitalized i still feel that. i'm not sure if i would even make it for the new year and i don't know how many how many days do i have. any of think about it is pretty evident that she's too young to have any counselor at all and then to have a longer answer which is classically related to smoking is almost impossible to believe because dr need israel think he has been on colleges in delhi for the past 7 years he's noticed a rise in the lung cancer among his patients we used to talk about smoking go back every day for 25 years causes cancer. sex so it's quite obvious that that may not be able to use their gums to chemical industries somebody who's exposed well she's not exposed to dark either then you start thinking of family history and she
6:45 pm
doesn't have the ideal then you have to stop a mean. pollution actually be your reasons for a cancer somebody a dark young there is enough evidence in the world that pollution can go dark and i really wonder if that was the main cord to be a true fact of if so then it could be in accord with the latest state of global air report on air quality and health it states that 33 percent of lung cancer deaths in india can be attributed to air pollution. living in a city like delhi you're directly but do you think inhaling. when all look at. sir because not for one day an awkward order or do you been doing this for years together and i can not see or stop it and say that's katie. and ron a keeps me some more disturbing news in the past 6 months he has put monitors in the
6:46 pm
. city he's noticed high levels of pollution even your hospitals in a neighborhood where i grew up. this is bad news for patients to risk of having respiratory ailments from the air that they breathe is very high for you know places like these it is particularly more important to make sure that the air is far more cleaner. it also helps explain why we could see a lot of nebulized and mosques being sold around us people used to buy hay bales and you know painkillers buying breathing about it is which is becoming a car body dies medical equipment you know required to store the unfortunate reality you know what is happening to the i don't know if. it's been shown by studies that men of lung capacity in generation born and brought up in the new cities like they really is much less than their counterparts in one polluted
6:47 pm
cities. you know miss because some of the most exposed to the cities and pollution i meet them just a few kilometers away from where i live a poor community that helps clean up danny but is he clearly vulnerable to its dirty and. number of people who are. saying. that actually. that's a learning center run by an n.g.o.s children surprise me other than knowledge of how people eating their daily chores are but they seem to have no other choice. but. to a. file
6:48 pm
you must hire leading cause of household and the indian government has made a commitment to replace the. with gas and windows and the 1000000 homes according to official figures almost $71000000.00 have benefited from this so far but many of the poorest communities like these have yet to be reached. that. being here has made me realize that denny's absolution comes from many sources big and small. it's all made worse by the city's unique geography and atmospheric conditions pollution from other areas gets blown here and then gets trapped. what is
6:49 pm
surprising is that the fight for clean air was 1st brought here decades ago and partially won but experts say the gains have now been lost we cleaned out the public transport sector we cleaned up the auto rickshaws the grass polluting sector but then over the top aus ammend 3 period to 2013 the private freight cars warmed in our cities because we completely neglected public transport and as it is out of fear we have this explosion of vehicles so any town arayan was part of a campaign that led to public transport being switched to compressed natural gas or c n g we just got complacent. we just believe that the problem had gone away but what we forgot is that any city like delhi will continue to grow and the challenges will increase so nor city in the world the job is done and i think for
6:50 pm
a city like delhi the the knowledge is particularly painful because it affects our help lucian is a public health editor and see something we need to be densely what it about. so what are the authorities doing here to tackle the most obvious causes of delhi's dirty air. transport sector is one of the biggest contribution to the city's apparition this is made worse by the fact that there's a still real sharp fall in the public transport system the delhi government says it's taking steps to fix this problem. last year then he made the commitment that he will bring in $1000.00 we are looking buses this is the largest commitment by any city in india. by one. just
6:51 pm
mention the delhi government has been working on an ambitious electric vehicle plan for the city if we are able to achieve the goal of ensuring that 25 percent of all new to start way goes in there are electric bills in 5 years from now our goal is that going to look at 100 percent of transition and reduce this 30 to 40 per cent its contribution of transport sector for pollution 1st it despite these commitments the delhi government has been accused of not doing enough in the 4 years of the delhi government not a single bus has been added they have given a plan for a power was only buses and sort of another 2000 ordinary buses but honestly. even that is too little why this is such a sharp fall of buses will be strange for many people around the world to know that the elected government off there lee does not have any control over the land or which it can set up public transport facilities will bus me pause and and the
6:52 pm
central government can cause that and unfortunately the central government has not allowed their government any access to more land the will these kind of facilities . even when the authorities here do take action matters elsewhere can cause problems down the stations are a case in point. the city's law school fired plant rather poor was shut down nastia. despite that the problem hasn't gone away it is very clear that pollution is not a local problem it is a regional problem and what one finds a little ironical is that on one hand you close down by the border because it is polluting delhi but on the other hand new power plants have been approved which i have read in 100 kilometers of beni environmental lawyer rig that has been fighting for cleaner emissions from baba plants the government of india came out with a fairly progressive emission norms for power plants the idea is that they will
6:53 pm
install new equipments as a result of which the pollution level will go down by almost 30 to 40 percent. the deadline was initially fixed for 2017 but the plants are yet to switch to cleaner gnome's something which was hailed as one of the very important decision taken by the present government to deal with the environmental crisis has been simply put in the back burner because there was no interest by the power companies and nor interest by the government to enforce this new noms. dirty coal plants are a problem familiar to other parts of the world india has another particularly distinct. of pollution challenge. the fumes from millions of firecrackers set off during the hindu festival of the valley. it's the single largest sort. of deli nearly 2.5 percent of the new york pollution
6:54 pm
is caused by those 3 days of fireworks cobalt shank on the line and is a senior supreme court advocates who joined other parents in filing a petition for clean air on behalf of that toddlers my middle child was having serious broken issues because of the amount of pollutants we had in the school to the sniffling and coughing tossing and turning at night the toddler skiis move the supreme court to fast ban the sale of firecrackers and lead to allow them with strict conditions but despite this millions of firecrackers were set off. and it's this kind of ignorance that has brought children outside the environment ministry to ask for more government action on pollution will not be released completely we cannot move out so we're going to be leaving i don't leave the film.
6:55 pm
we are not able to believe. in the body guy evolution is a lot we don't expect a fight i have i think about how it was i was setting me up. in answer to these and other concerns authorities have introduced a slew of measures including planting trees around the city building expressways and banning the import of dirty feel. in january 29000 delhi was among the cities listed in the country's 1st ever national clean air programme by the aquila he is still not good enough to go to india stop environment. official to ask why i got figures from your office and the number of quality days in delhi last year was 0 which is quite alarming one of the critical factors in the quality is the
6:56 pm
meterological factor the continuous layer of washed over daily or this does is the . they prevent the dispersal of it here because of the moisture level of the dispersal is very bad and that is why you rarely get to say a good day to have an absolute number of 0 good air quality days in delhi despite so much government intervention doesn't that surprise you well that just means that we need to do more work there is one point i would like to make it cannot and should not be the government's responsibility alone people's participation is a huge thing unless that happens and individuals start caring for the environment we will not be able to really clean up. the combative and labyrinth tiny chel of indian politics is also a barrier one of the most contentious issues has been the burning of rice stubble
6:57 pm
outside of delhi which leaves the city in a every winter commodity emergency. but unfortunately there were in this common scenario of money says saudia is delhi's deputy chief minister he says the federal government must do more to bring down stubble fires outside the city. some of the news and. it's got to happen is regional crisis one case of course and the water and going to really come up with the entire solomon holmes and lawrence about a bargain with. meeting somebody out there but meeting successful is a little drama but historically we do so long as it on the telly and our production anybody who planned. but i am saying to the delhi chief minister go only someone else i think pollution is still bigger problem health emergency for us to deteriorate into india's favorite game which is to blame another political party
6:58 pm
and get into screaming on television what's more says suneet on arayan the problem is not a lack of regulations it's getting them in forced implementation is india's attlee's he too because the institutions for governance for in foresman are very disabled they are poor so there are enough orders that are there but our institutions really lack teet. and according to data from the national crime records bureau violators on to being prosecuted or sent to jail this is what the state of delhi has done it has not registered a single case and so there's no question of anybody getting convicted because there is no case minister at all so that they get this straight and in all of then we don't have a single conviction basically means all of that is complying with the law there is a political gain and everybody complains with the law it's definitely is not true
6:59 pm
otherwise it will not see such alarming level of pollution so it is a clear instance where the enforcement agencies have kept their eyes completely closed to every single violation that is happening in the state. as i go around the city makes shocking revelations still ring in my yes meanwhile delhi citizens continue to wrestle with health problems that pollution causes. but there is at least some good news for priyanka all these black spots there's a big one is all cancer this is 3 months ago a look at the seams can hear you see this block has completely disappeared and you can see these black supporter virtually gone except the smaller doctor excellent news we've got very happy with thank you david so don't you think this is like increase the lifespan it's 13000000000 crizal lives for the goods it's working you
7:00 pm
know what we don't hold and you being nobody can predict really bad luck so many years. out on the streets campaigning is getting now although apple used and has made it to party manifestos for the 1st time ever it's still not a major election issue but for a recently bereaved family just outside delhi it became a matter of life and death. i use. the bait means there were windows open and there were is and she was asking for me and she was. some tall mara died a few weeks ago at the age of 35 she left behind her husband of a and her 10 year old son study on church who now wants to become a doctor i want to be in okinawa just because the cancer spreading in india
