Most people in Honduras live in the north where most of the factories for work are located, but indigenous people and anyone else living in the rural areas deal with most of the effects of deforestation. When you remove large areas of forest the climate will begin to change and effect anyone living around it. Since Honduras is a poor country it is harder to protect yourself from environmental changes. Also, by deforestation the water sources they use are no longer protected and leave rural and urban areas without good drinking water. Illegal logging is still a rising problem, because those doing so are not having to pay taxes on sales to other countries, and this is taking away from all wood sellers in the Honduras community.
Introduction Honduras is located in the heart of Central America, with a population of about 8.5 million inhabitants (source). Although in the past decade the economy had been improving, various political anomalies have been shaking the economy lately. It is known to everyone that Honduras is a third world country and that it has some serious poverty issues. Poverty is highly denoted in the rural areas of the country. This problem affects about 60 % of the population and there are many private and non-profit organizations that want to help lower this percentage.
The rainforest helps maintain and regulate the continuous recycling of water that filter to the rivers, and lakes without this it would be more droughts, it supports air quality and helps trees absorb carbon dioxide and produce H2O. It also provides wood, fiber and fuel and it is also important to indigenous communities supplying fresh water, wild foods,wild fisheries and wood for fire and building. People who live near the rainforest also hold a somewhat cultrue or spiritual bond giving them a sense of
Growing up in Honduras was quite an experience. I come from a hard working family where both of my parents went through several obstacles to provide me and my siblings a stable life. Honduras is a country that is consider a third-world country where economy along with delinquency are a big issue, but my parents still manage to provide the sources for me and my other two siblings on what it is necessary. My family and I were affected by organized crime, a day where my life was changed forever. It was a Friday afternoon when my brother and my father were kidnapped, they had left to a soccer game.
it is know that not all contamination and environmental hazards are result of the maquiladoras nonetheless, the industrial chemicals use by these factories are great health threats for public health and noticeably for their workers. Several studies has been done in regards of this situation. Such problems seems to be due to the lack of resource that Mexico has for enforcement and not to the lack of policies or laws being that Mexicans environmental laws are much the same than those we have here at the US (Williams & Homedes, 2001, p.
The chemicals are absorbed into the ground and travel into surrounding bodies of water. This makes sense as Cuba’s warm climate is ideal for farming and makes up a large part of its economic well being. Moreover, industrial liquids have recently been reported of being dumped directly into the water. The contamination that occurs due to the nickel industry is one of the most serious contributors of water pollution in Cuba. Roughly about 3 gallons of chemicals from only one of the three nickel factories are dumped into the
Economically, the lack of public goods and community organization, high unemployment rate, economic inequality, and unfavorable terms of trade are all limiting factors. Environmentally, current natural disasters, environmental degradation dating back to the colonial era, unfavorable topography, and massive deforestation are all challenges for Haiti. (Webersik 122) Climate change in Haiti, the world 's poorest and least developed country, do cause flooding, droughts, hurricanes and other meteorological disasters. And these disasters will influence Haiti a lot in the perspective of economy, healthy problem and industrial. The reasons for me to believing so include that
therefore the communities future is directly connected to the strength of these natural resources so if there is not enough biodiversity these resources could run out causing these community to fail and that county as a whole to fail indirectly. 3) Human employment and a positive economy; a great amount of jobs rely on biological resources including agriculture, fishing foresting, eco-tourism and outdoor recreation this supply’s. Without most of these jobs that rely on a healthy ecosystem which is supplied to us by diversity there would be farther unemployment and it would decrease a counties GDP significantly and over make the worlds harder to live in. 4) Medical Development; The more types of plant and animal species that we have lead to the greater chance of finding medical cures to certain diseases. Think about it the more plants and variety of plants the greater the likely hood of one of an undiscovered plant to contain the cure for cancer per say but if plants are becoming extinct before they are discovered the lower the chance of us finding cures for
Natural resources are play important role for sustaining life of all living forms on earth. Due to development activity, uses of modern technology and blindly running after development progress so it impacts on natural resources also due to these kind of activity responsible for climate change now this condition become unfavorable for all living forms. Here throws light on one of the natural resource is water. Water is life and livelihood for people, it is basic need of human being. There are many uses of water like survival, cleaning agent also it necessary for agriculture.
People do not make Earth’s resources. Earth’s resources include air, water, plants, animals, soil, minerals and fossil fuels. People need Earth’s resources to stay alive. The ocean is an example of Earth’s resources. Ocean waves be used to generate wave power which is a renewable energy and is important for salt production, desalination and providing habitat for deep water fishes.
