Unfortunately, no further information is available on the gender, age or/and class of the victims. II. ECOLOGICAL CHANGES Tibet was ecologically stable before the communist Chinese invasion in 1950. The vegetation was sparse, but the land supported a diverse wildlife and famine was unknown. Because Tibetans followed the Buddhist principle that forbids them to disturb the earth, they exploited few resources.
Vietnam has little trade with other societies at similar latitudes and a lacking of domesticated species, which has resulted in a rural society with negligible advancement. It has been difficult for the Vietnamese to trade both goods and ideas with other societies because Vietnam is entirely engulfed in jungle that runs only north and south. The transference of trade goods to Vietnam has been nearly impossible for much of the nation’s history. With only ocean and a small parcel of land west and east of Vietnam, Jared Diamond would surely agree trade has thus far been a daunting task (Diamond 177). Receiving technological goods such as clothing has been difficult without trade partners at a similar latitude.
Among these theorists, John Migdal (1994) and Robert Jackson’s (1990) work is very important for this present study. According to Migdal, state and society has a close relationship. State cannot function separately so their relationship is very dynamic, both struggle to preserve authority. In this context Migdal (1994) argues that the struggle between state and ethnic groups which found within society not only generate conflict but sometimes create alliances. These alliances are useful for the state in transforming the nature of ethnic conflict in favour of the domination and hegemony of the state (pp.
Despite the significant improvements brought forward in 2001 to improve governance, public transport infrastructure and social services. Three decades of conflict have left most Afghans in conditions of terrible financial and living hardship and insecurity. Much infrastructure remains to be reconstructed, and internal markets are still disrupted. The Afghan population is suffering from absolute poverty in Afghanistan is closely related to the high illiteracy rate in rural areas where a large majority... ... middle of paper ... ...such an influx of workers will create a huge growth in the afghan economy, as major companies would look to invest in factories and other such infrastructure However for Afghanistan to improve the U.S forces have to leave, especially when trying to prove to the world they cannot just survive but thrive on their own. How will investors invest in the countries resources when its highly reliant on the U.S’s declining economy.
Global poverty in this essay can be defined as having no or very limited access to fresh water, medical facilities, and education (Sumner, 2011, internet). This essay will argue that western countries have not been working hard in assisting poor nations develop in a comprehensive manner. Firstly, much of the food and resources in developed countries is squandered, while others do not get enough food to meet their energy needs. It can be seen that western countries do not even the distribution of food. Furthermore, a lack of educational aid causes a large gap between these less developed countries and western countries.
The economy of Afghanistan has significantly enhanced since the decline of the Taliban in 2001 due to the infusion of international assistance, the recovery of the agricultural sector, and service sector growth. Regardless of the progress of the past few years, this country is extremely poverty stricken, highly dependent on foreign aid, and landlocked. A lot of the population continues to suffer from shortages of jobs, clean water, electricity, medical care, and housing. Offences, insecurity, lack of infrastructure, and the Afghan Government's difficulty in extending rule of law to all parts of the country produces obstacles to the future economic growth of Afghanistan. Afghanistan's living standards are among the lowest in the world.
The global health challenge that I am focusing on is malnutrition in Cambodia. Malnutrition is the result of poor feeding practices such as wasting and stunting during early childhood. In Cambodia up to 40% of the children are malnourished because of poverty, this is an alarming fact and something needs to be done to prevent this (World Vision International, 2014). This health problem is essential to a couple of the UN Millennium Development Goals which are eradicate extreme hunger and poverty and reduce child mortality. Cambodia unfortunately, has the highest infant and under-five child mortality rate in the region, at 97 and 141 per 1,000 live births, with malnutrition being one of them (Unicef, 2003).
Towns were very unique from each other, even though they were within the same borders. One main repercussion of this minimal government was self-help groups. Due to the lack of resources, the government was not able to lend a helping hand in times of distress. So, these self-help groups were run by members of a community for the members of the community. In pre-industrial times, governments lacked a variety of resources.
Looking at how Nepal’s consumer action is associated with the quest of finding modernity, modernity is an important indicator for changes for the better in the chains of economic, social, political, and even in relation to religious bondage. The definition of modernity lies from the daily demands and possibilities of transformation of social and material context against the deeply rooted cultural and moral values, system of prestige, and notions of propriety within Kathmandu (Liechty, 2003). Modernity help perpetuate its hold over society for those who hold the power. These changes in society can occur in response to people desire to fit into society and not only that. Finding modernization can be seen as a blind pursuit of westernization form rather than their content and values toward Kathmandu.
The above mentioned factors have not only affected the economic prospects of a country but also in areas of human development. India has been ranked poorly in the 2014 Human Development Index report which consists of rate of life expectancy, education and per capita income of an individual. It has ranked India at 135th position behind other South Asian countries like Sri Lanka (73rd rank) (Anon., 2014). As we have seen so far, social inequality and exclusion is a vital part in the process of understanding poverty. The state of a few sections of society has a long drawn relation to the social norms that have been imposed upon them centuries ago.
