The ambiguity established through the M-Audit and CR are amongst the key problems encountered with Nike’s voluntary auditing system, which make it inefficient at measuring positive changes in working conditions in the long-run. For sustained improvements to be implemented in Nike’s global supply chain factories, an institutionalized downstream pressure must be implemented. NGOs’ creation of guidelines is important to guarantee uniformed labour standards across countries and states. However, without combined pressure from the State, the guidelines remain as advices. Henceforth, NGOs and States must collaborate in exerting increased pressure to Nike.
Children in this country have the right to education, equality, adequate food, health, life, access clean water & other safe resources, and many more. However, some rights are critically threatened by current environmental issues such as contaminated water sources, increasing ocean temperature, and rising sea levels. Climate change had taken a heavy toll on Tuvalu’s land; corals reefs are damaged, and lands are slowly disappearing. It puts children at a great risk of displacement or possibly extirpation. In addition, citizens are relying heavily on rainwater source due to the contamination of groundwater by urban runoffs.
Lamentably some people don´t have access to these 20% of clean water and they have to use the contaminated one leading to skin problems, death, etc. “Honduras has a high concentration of polluted rivers, it turned human activity and population growth ... The Choluteca, Chamelecón and Ulua rivers are the most sensitive cases of contamination, receiving wastewater from the cities of Tegucigalpa and Valle de Sula, receive industrial wastes, agricultural chemicals used or manufactured in the basins, landfills and sediments on its banks, among others.”( Jose, no pg) To be brief hondurans should be more conscious about what they´re doing because when they contaminate the country they are actually making a damage to themselves and to further generations that
SIDS are ecologically sensitive. The biggest disadvantages are limited resources, geographic expansion and isolation from world markets. Even if these countries are almost not responsible for the climate change, they are likely to suffer the most, and in certain cases even become uninhabitable. For that they need the help and attention of the international community. SIDS are really sensitive to climate change, climate variability and sea-level rise.
Adjustments to the change will have to take place. For this there is a need for further research and observation of the changes. Climate change, increasing drought frequency and intensity, and high demand of water are increasing scarcity in certain countries. High agricultural consumption, increased salinity and underdeveloped conservation technologies compound the pressures on the nation’s water supply. Ultimately, climate change is likely to have a negative impact on countries and make them increasingly difficult to meet urban and agricultural water needs.
Water pollution is the contamination of water due to unhealthy human activities. The pollution is mostly caused by industrial waste, global warming, garbage and waste dumping, and oil leakage. According to waterbenefitshealth there are many types of water pollution such as “Surface water pollution, Groundwater pollution, Microbial pollution, Oxygen Depletion pollution, Nutrient pollution, Suspended Matter pollution, and Chemical pollution.” Water pollution is a hazardous case in the world as it leads to hunger, poverty, diseases, extinction of aquatic animals, and lack of human access to fresh water.
From time to time, the water supply and service are getting increased which sometimes imbalance with the service capability. People can not live by consuming the water itself, but needs the services of good environmental system that will required for water sustainability. Some of the main problems faced by society are lack of clean water’s availability, unevenly the service of water supply and adequate water resources that has not been properly utilized. The struggle of water utilization for various uses causing the disappearance of clean water adequate access to some people. Due to the society demands on high amount of clean water along the time, it is government obligation to create
SCOPE AND RATIONALE : In this research, I would be analyzing the reason for increase in water pollution both global and locally. How this pollution affects our life; why people don’t care about preserving this precious Natural resource and what are we doing/treating it now. I personally, want to know how an individual can do to protect our planet against all this pollution. INTRODUCTION: Water is life, with almost 70% of the earth’s cover being water; it undeniably becomes one of our greatest resources. But the heart-rending news is that today, it’s Infested with waste ranging from floating plastic bags to chemical waste, our water bodies have turned into a pool of poison.
And it’s important to study because Water is essential to life. Yet water pollution is one of the most serious ecological threats we face today. (Water Pollution) (The Importance of Clean Water) It affects to animals, humans, sea creatures. For humans, you will get a stomach ache at the least. (How Does Water Pollution Affect Humans?)
CHAPTER I Introduction 1.1 Background of the Study Water and sanitation crisis is highly increasing in the Philippines and the individuals who are affected don’t have the solution to the problem. Lack of access to safe water and improved sanitation may result to a severe sickness or disease. According to Dr. Lee, Director-General of the World Health Organization, water and sanitation are the primary factors of health and needed to be secured. Several Filipinos don’t have access to clean water that leads their health at risk. Many products were introduced in the market as substitute to clean water but those products still bring detriments to people.
