Hindu Vocab On The 46th Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meeting in India

Delegates from over 60 countries have convened (to bring together a group of people for a meeting, or to meet for a meeting) in Kochi, Kerala to attend the 46th Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meeting (ATCM) that is expected to go on until the month end. An annual affair, this is in essence a meeting of the ‘Consultative Parties,’ or the 29 countries that have a right to vote on affairs concerning the management of the continent. Other attendees are countries with a non-voting ‘observer’ status as well as independent experts and invited functionaries. One of the interesting points on the agenda this time relates to tourism. A group of ‘like-minded’ countries, that includes India, pressed for a proposal to introduce a regulatory (of or relating to a person or organization whose job is to control an activity or process or to the regulations themselves) framework governing tourism in the continent. Unlike other continents, the Antarctica does not have its own indigenous (used to refer to, or relating to, the people who originally lived in a place, rather than people who moved there from somewhere else) population.

With millions of hectares of untrammelled ice and its geographical isolation (the fact that something is separate and not connected to other thing), it is not a tourist’s everyday jamboree or the elite’s regular private-jet getaway. This makes it irresistibly (in a way that is impossible to refuse, oppose, or avoid because it is too pleasant, attractive, or strong) alluring. In this day and age, where every navigable (of an area of water) deep, wide, or safe enough for a boat to go through) square inch of land is up for fleeting, visual consumption, the Antarctica is the only continent that can be described as wild, its secrets buried under kilometres-thick blankets of ice. Given that the creation, capture and marketing of the ‘exotic’ experience is an industry that guarantees exponential returns, the Antarctica is now the ‘wild south’ that the wealthy traveller aspires to. A recent joint study by universities in Tasmania, the U.K. and Australia said that the number of tourists rose from 8,000 in 1993 to 1,05,000 in 2022. This does not include all the scientific expeditions (an organized journey for a particular purpose) and the long-term presence of scientific personnel at research stations maintained by different countries. Reports now suggest that the number of tourists exceeds scientists. To be sure, concerns about rising tourists have been expressed since 1966 at the consultative (A consultative group or document gives advice about something) meets, with the attendant worries that more ships and more people mean more man-made pollutants and rising instances of accidents and disasters that lead to upsetting the unique biodiversity of the region. This urge to preserve (to keep something as it is, especially in order to prevent it from decaying or being damaged or destroyed) the pristine purity of the continent — estimated to be the size of the United States and Mexico combined — however conceals the underlying anxiety of all nations. Will, despite the treaty’s commitment (a promise or firm decision to do something) to disallowing territorial claims, unexpected future circumstances effect a change in terms? Will the presence of more people from one country influence terms in their favour? Though India’s Antarctica-bound tourists are minimal, this could very well change in the days to come, thanks to growing lop-sided prosperity. While a proponent of the proposal, India must be wary of any deal that could undercut future opportunities from tourism.
