However, it's important to note that climate variability/changes and poverty have always been part of puzzle and farmers in the Sahel have developed quite resilient socio economic mechanisms to cope and even to adapt ( Climate change adaptation and food insecurity in Maradi District – Niger ). The third factor (which is bad Governance ) has been an exacerbating factor that endermined community social capital and led to many food crisis in Niger. Out of the 08 food crisis that have occurred in Niger from 1966 to 2005, bad governance and other likeminded political factors have been key triggering factors. Some examples included locust attacks in the 1966-1967, 1973-1974, 1984-1985, 1993-1994, 1996-1997, 2004-2005 food crisis (these can be prevented/avoided if governments have put the required means), military coup (1996-1997), depreciation of the CFA franc (1993-1994), closure of Niger-Nigeria border (food crisis of 1984-1985), etc. In short, bad governance and other political factors have greatly contributed in weakening community social protection networks and broken their resilience to food shortages.

Introduction This contribution clarifies two issues in B pictures, motion vector prediction and prediction signal using implicit weighting factor, under the assumption that the relative timing information is kept in video layer. 2. (...) Prediction signal P using implicit weighting factor Therefore, this contribution introduces the efficient way switching the implicit weighting factors: If two motion vectors of the current macroblock take different directions (in other words, if two reference pictures in the current macroblock exist in separate directions), ABP coefficient (1/2, 1/2, 0) is used. (...) Therefore, it is necessary to clarify those things from the viewpoint of the current B (bi-predictive) picture. This contribution has proposed the clear way to resolve the ambiguity in both motion vector prediction and selection of implicit weighting factor.

In doing so, an investigating authority can consider a "causal link" to exist between the subsidized imports and the injury on the basis of the first step of its analysis, provided that the authority compares the significance of such a "causal link" with the significance of the injurious effects of other known factors and objectively assesses whether this link qualifies as a "genuine and substantial" causal relationship in light of those other factors. 6.13. (...) In particular, we have stated that it is inappropriate for an investigating authority to examine whether other known factors "break" the causal link in the sense that the injurious effects of each non-attribution factor are so significant that they eliminate the link between the subsidized imports and the injury. (...) However, with respect to the countervailing duty investigation at issue, we have observed that the European Commission effectively examined whether and why the subsidized imports can be considered a "genuine and substantial" cause of the injury taking into WT/DS486/AB/R - 66 - account the injurious effects of all of the other known factors that it found to have contributed to the injury. 6.15.
