Water and change report Water scarcity is the deficiency of available water resources to meet the demands of water use within a specific region. The water scarcity apparently affects around 2.8 billion people, which means that more than 1/3 of entire human population live under water-stress condition. However, by 2025 2/3 of the world population will be living under water-stressed conditions. Locations of Water Scarcity From the map above it can be seen that the water scarcity can be divided in two parts, physical water scarcity (red) and economic water scarcity (yellow). However, some regions have little or no water scarcity (blue) or approaching physical water scarcity (orange).
In developing countries, areas which have large scale agricultural activities especially in water intensive agricultural activities such as horticulture usually experience water shortages due to the amount of water used in agriculture. It is important that alternative water sources are used for agriculture is there is to be clean drinking water for people across the
Agriculture It is the way of nature that every single living creature on earth must function from the energy it receives from food and water, healthy food to be more precise. We humans did receive hygienic food but under the influence of globalization it is hard to answer the question whether we consume healthy food or not. When the process by which businesses or other organizations develop into international influence or start operating on an international scale, the small-scale trades become larger ones. To compete with the necessity farmers and the local industries that produced low in quantities were pushed to produce more and more regardless of the quality. This is where all problems start from.
Soil erosion is a growing problem worldwide and has been taken its toll on the environment. Although soil seems insignificant to the population, it is a viable source that humans need to survive. Soil anchors all life on Earth by providing plants with the nutrients needed to stay alive. Not only does it play a key role in the design and sustainability of agricultural systems but it also affects future generations needs and production of crops as well (Higgit 1). Soil erosion affects the global community’s livelihoods through a variety of conditions.
Droughts: Causes and effects of droughts Manoli 10AA Many countries today are effected by droughts like Ethiopia, Somalia and Uganda, and its effects are tremendous towards the whole country, many people plants and animals die yearly due to droughts. So what exactly is a drought? A drought is a long period of dry weather caused by a lack of rainfall or snow. As temperature rises due to the worlds climatic changes, more moisture evaporates from the land and water, leaving less water behind for plants and animals to live. Some places are getting a lot of rain and snow to make up for it, but other places aren’t.
Food Insecurity The continuous increasing demand for the food requires the rapid improvement in food production technology. In a country like Ethiopia, the economy is mainly based on agriculture and the climate conditions are isotropic, still we are not able to make full usage of agricultural resources. The main reason is the lack of rains and scarcity of the land reservoir water in some areas of the country. The problem I address about my country is that Ethiopia is one of the countries among the third world countries facing food insecurity currently. It is believed that around 10.2 million people are getting hunger out of the total population of 100 million people.
We should found a solutions to survive, and at this project we will try to focus on the impact on the food industry that will be affected by the water shortage at Egypt and found a solutions to survive and stay alive. Introduction: Our main topic is the water shortage and its impact on the food industry which an urgent problem that we have to found solution for it before we face the disaster’s that will be the result of water shortage and then it will led to drought so Egypt will turn into another Somalia famine and the government worst night mare will come true. This famine will make a revolution of the hungry that’s government talk about it from many years ago and this revolution will not just be satisfied by sit in the square and ask the government to live, this revolution will be the flame for a civil war each one will be for him/her self. So in this condition the whole country will fall down, it’s a cold war between Egypt and their enemies at the territory, and the history show us how Egypt always turn all their efforts down and win at the end. But
Introduction Poverty has been a global phenomenon for a long time and it affects most continents, countries and people in different ways. Poverty has been a long standing challenge in Nigeria especially in the rural areas. The low social class and poor living conditions of the inhabitants in the rural areas is an indicator of the poor living conditions of many people in the rural areas. In addition, the focus on the development of the urban areas at the detriments of the rural areas has made the problem worse. According to UNDP (1996), poverty is no longer contained within national boundaries, it has become even globalized and it travels across borders, without a passport, in the forms of drugs, disease, pollution, migration, terrorism and political stability.
