Industrial corporations have continuously used bodies of water to their advantage by having their factories use water as an energy source and trash bin. Toxic chemicals are released by these factories and sometimes directly dumped back into the water. Aquatic plants benefit from the carbon dioxide released by factories, but too much can harm the biodiversity of that ecosystem and other marine life and acidity levels will also rise. A bigger population means more consumption and as the human consumption has increased throughout the years, landfills have been overflowed by large amounts of trash. When liquids and other materials begin to degrade, they release a juice that can be toxic if consumed.

(Anon., 2014) What is the impact of poverty on South Africa? (According to “Hannah Cleveland” from “The Borgen Project”) The most common effect of poverty is malnutrition, as people living in poverty rarely have access to highly nutritious foods, nor the money in order to purchase food. One effect of poverty is the health effects that the people in poverty receive.
How do we define poverty? According to dictionaries, poverty is “the state of being extremely poor”. But my definition of poverty is not having enough resources to be satisfied with your basic needs, like: shelter, food, clothing, water, health care and job. Poverty is like a disease, it is always spreading. According to the World Bank, more than 700 million people are living in extreme poverty (2).
Costly by the location of the geographic area, mostly by the price of certain items, also costly by the option of having “name brand” or “off-brand” items, which could serve as a certain measurement of self-sufficient power to some people. Being in the state of poverty in society doesn’t allow one to fulfill needs in life effectively. When people think of poverty, there are certain terms or words people say or think of. For example, the term or words “homeless”, particular racial-ethnic groups, “poor people”, lack of income, lower class people. Living in modern day society from my experience, everything one needs cost money to survive.

According to Rural Poverty Portal (2009) poverty in Bhutan is caused mainly due to nature of the topography. Bhutan has rugged terrain with only 2.93% arable land. The rugged terrain also limits the accessibility of inhabitants to social and health services and marketing and educational facilities adding to higher rate of poverty. Populations are growing rapidly in rural areas but resources and opportunities are limited. Due to high illiteracy rates and lack of trainings, rural people lack entrepreneurial skills and knowledge of technology that they need to improve their living standards.
However, the unprecedented levels of unemployment in South Africa combined with large number of “working poor” makes achieving food security challenging. The South Africa’s extensive social assistance programmes are recognised to contribute to reducing food insecurity and act as an important safety net for most poor and vulnerable households. Although the state has an ambitious plan to enhance employment in South Africa, mainly through short term public employment programmes, these are low paying jobs and hence cannot contribute effectively to addressing food and nutrition security. A further challenge is that fewer people in South Africa rely on access to land and involvement in agriculture to grow food for own consumption. Other challenges affecting food and nutrition security include high prices and the main concern is food price inflation that often exceeds the general inflation.
