Northern China faces serious water shortage, where water resources have been overexploited for a long time, rivers became dried, the underground water was over exploited, and the river ecology and environment became deteriorated (Lu et al，2014; Deng & Zhao, 2014). The water scarcity is partly because of the falling supply, but even more because of the rising water demand from different sectors. Since agriculture is the main water-using sector in China, it consumes about 60% of the total water resource. The number can be even more than 80% in northern China (MWR, 2008). Among the water allocated to agriculture sector, 90% is used for irrigation.
There are innumerable issues that pose a threat to our way of living and overpopulation is one of the problems. The world’s population is increasing by 1.10 percent per year or 83 million people. Advanced technology has affected this rising number in many ways. Although the world has a lot of untapped natural resources, overpopulation is a threat to humanity and the planet because it will increase habitat loss, accumulate the consumption of finite natural resources, and reduce stabilization of the climate. With a higher population, there will be more favorable outcome in certain businesses; however, habitat loss to both humans and animals is menacing.
Abortion is an emotional issue that deserves special attention. I believe in the case of Sheila and Roger selective abortion would be appropriate. In this case, Sheila’s prenatal diagnosis determined that Sheila is carrying a set of twins with a genetic disease that will compromise their lives forever. Sheila is very aware of any possible detriments if she gives birth to the twins because her sister has a child with Cystic Fibrosis. Considering the circumstances Sheila and Roger must decide what is in the best interest of the fetuses.
Individuals that are already faced with the situation of teenage pregnancy will be addressed as well as those who have not yet faced the problem, as they will be made aware of the implications of teenage pregnancy and how to prevent it from happening. Awareness can lead to the solution in overcoming this problem. Everyone is responsible for the choices that they make in their lives, thus facing the consequences that follow, but we will aim at reducing these consequences by helping individuals make the right choices in life, leaving them with a brighter future ahead and with many more possibilities. The target group has been identified in the Potchefstroom community and the aim of this research project is to get everyone involved in the problem
The population in this basin has a high growth rate meaning that there's rapid increase in population. The challenge is to have adequate food and water quantities for this increasing population Water Allocation Blue nile River contributes 60-69% of the water in the River Nile. For decades the allocation of the waters in this basin has been controversial and is still an issue that needs to be solved inorder to avoid conflicts between the countries. 2. Water Allocation Blue nile River contributes 60-69% of the water in the River Nile.
Deficiency of water scheme maintenance and lack of new facilities combined with rapid population growth has brought water scarcity in Addis Ababa. High volume of water wastage due to faulty piping (as high as 35 percent), and needs priority given to industries, also contribute to the shortage. In terms of urban population it currently accounts for at least 22.9% of the country’s total urban population (CSA, 2012). Addis Ababa is divided into 10 sub-cities with the population of each sub city as shown in the Table 1 below kolfe keraniyo, yeka and nifas silk lafto sub city are highly
Altogether, overcrowding negatively affects the environment. Overpopulation causes habitat loss, increases the rate of extinction, decreases the amount of fresh water available, and limits natural resources. Overpopulation has damaged many diverse ecosystems throughout history. As the
Global food security problem Global environmental changes have resulted in many problems like air and water pollution, environmental disasters, global warming and food security is one of these problems. The number and proportion of hungry people in the world are in decline with the recovery in the global economy and the survival food prices, but the hunger rate is still higher than it was before the crisis rising food prices and the economic crisis. Over the time these causes of food security issue are aggravating and growing which makes the need for speed avoided and resolved. This essay will discuss the global food security issue that emerged due to the population explosion, climate changes, agriculture problems, and lack of awareness of
Due to lack of proper infrastructure, management and sophisticated technology these countries are recognized for their poor economics and poverty (Cohen, 2006). Moreover due to their rapid population growth they adversely affect the natural resources and local ecosystem. As the consequence of population growth development increases, which in turn reduces the land and resource availability, that are required to meet the increased demand for basic necessaries like fuel food and building material (Dutta, 1995). The fastest growing cities of the world are mostly characterized by poor water infrastructure and waste water treatment facilities (Huang and Xia, 2001). As the rate of extraction of fresh water increased for agriculture, drinking and other
