The Pledge to Eliminate Poverty
As Hite and Seitz (2016) discuss in Chapter 2: Wealth and Poverty, the Millennium Development Goals were created to provide developing countries support through the partnership of developed countries. The first goal is to “eradicate extreme poverty and hunger” in the world.
According to the textbook, population is still increasing in the world’s poorest regions. Take a look at the Millennium Development Goals report (https://www.un.org/millenniumgoals/2015_MDG_Report/pdf/MDG%202015%20rev%20(July%201).pdf).
The report notes that progress in reducing extreme hunger is uneven across regions and countries. Looking at the graph on page 14 of the report, which countries have the least reduction in extreme hunger? Which countries have the greatest reduction in extreme hunger? What factors contribute to this uneven progress? What are some possible strategies for creating more progress in these countries?
RE: Week 4 | Discussion
Hello class, fossil fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas are considered non-renewable resources. Scientist have predicted that coal will last until 2146, oil until 2041, and natural gas until 2071 at the present consumption. While everyone focuses on the big fossil fuels, we must remember that the soil and nonfuel minerals in the Earth’s crust are being exploited too at an alarming rate by industrialized countries. For example, iron, aluminum, copper, lime, phosphate rock, gypsum, sand, gravel, and rock. Salt is considered the most mined mineral that is produced a lot. But here is the reason I mentioned soil because the soil is the main ingredient in food production. Without the right nutrients in the soil food cannot grow and that is due to some of the nonfuel minerals that countries are mining for other goods.
No matter if your country is developed or underdeveloped, countries should reduce, reuse and recycle is the best strategies to reduce consumption of non-renewable resources. More regulations on consumption and release of chemicals in the air is another way to conserve. Using solar, wind, hydroelectric and other renewable resources will help with the demand too. Government needs to help with the costs of renewable resources and maybe offer incentives to companies that convert to cut down on emissions. Another strategy is to buy local products to save on fossil fuels being used during transportation. Finally, people need to cut back on amount of resources within the home
Eliminating poverty in developing countries is an issue that needs to be addressed through partnerships between developed and developing countries. From the graph provided on page 14 on the report, the region that has the least reduction in extreme poverty include Sub-Saharan Africa
