Not only are people being pushed out of their neighbourhoods and homes by those willing to pay more, there is an apparent price hike for those who desire to stay in their homes. Non-integrated/non-gentrified communities start off with higher poverty rates while simultaneously having low homeownership. Then people with higher incomes move in causing a raise in the cost of living within the community. Despite this the working class pay and low income remain the same for the original residents who can no longer afford to live in what once was their home. The social cost of the actions are extremely high and cause just as many community issues as household familial issues.
Due to continuous increase in the population scale resulted into resource’s scarcity. The services provided by the local government of Naga City to its constituents becoming limited due to high demand. Ironically, Poor migrants became squatters which added to the already worsening problem of urban poor housing. Thus, the influx of people resulted to sanitation problems, water and air pollution, and traffic congestion, slum and squatter settlements and a lot more. Just like in other cities in the Philippines, the rate of population growth in Naga far exceeds job creation, leading to more unemployment and worsening
Also rural exodus is also a symptom of youth unemployment. As a result, the health of cities has deteriorated. These migrants have been called “victims of urbanisation without industrialisation” who do not even get jobs as they go to the cities to make life easier for them and their families. Also, as a result the dependency ratios in the suburbs continue to rise and the younger population continue to
Therefore, there is a connection between poverty and crime. The more the number of people living in poverty, the higher the crime rate, which is obviously bad from a social perspective because it compromises safety and security in the region/country. Furthermore, many people living in poverty are homeless, which forces them to live on the streets, showing the failure of the state to adequately provide for them. 8. LEDC’s point of view It is easy to see why countries with large proportions of their populations living in poverty are interested to reduce that number, both for the good of their people as well as the future development of the country.
Who is to be blamed for this situation? My country India is second in world population and the poverty rate is also very high.. “According to World Bank the head count of poverty ratio in India is the people living on less than $1.25 a day is almost 32.7% in 2010.” It could be due the negligence of the Government departments in promoting farming or small scale industries which provide people with a job to earn for their lives. Educational backwardness (in certain regions of India) is also a reason for increase in informal jobs in which there is no fixed wage and also there can be days many may have to stay back home due to climatic conditions and political disorders which is very common in a multiparty democracy like
These social problems will begin to hurt the economy as many companies will refrain from investing in the country, leading to further decline in the availability of jobs. The government would also need to create new facilities such as schools, hospitals and housing for the grown population, which are not cheap. This inevitably leads to the declination of the environment as natural vegetation is removed to make space for the new buildings. Also, with a population that is too large for the country, the demand for natural resources increases beyond the rate that it can be
Unemployment rates have been increasing over the years. This has been attributed to a number of factors which have ked the government to initiate strategies for wealth and job creation. Dwindling economic situations close the does for new jobs. In such bad economic times many multinational companies have had to round up operations in Kenya for fear of total collapse while others have left due to political turbulence. Kenya subscribes fully to Structural Adjustment Programs (SAP) for development.
Urban poverty may be accounted to the poor interventions to engage sufficiently with rural poverty or due to failure of various policies or strategies to reduce rural poverty. This trend is predominant across cities of various developing countries. This phenomenon is changing the entire urban face by introducing two major aspects/dimensions. The first is that the poor are being forced to live in slums to fulfill the residential foothold and the other aspect is that the poor are being forced to work in the informal sector to earn a living. The proportion of informal sector is higher than the formal in urban areas.
Overpopulation exacerbates many social and environmental factors, including overcrowded living conditions, malnutrition and inadequate or non-existent health care, which reek havoc on the poor and increases their likelihood of being exposed to infectious diseases . C10: Urbanization: Urbanization is an index of conversion from traditional rural economies to modern industrial one. It is a long term process . The promise of jobs and prosperity, among other factors, pulls people to cities. Half of the people already live in cities; by 2050 two-thirds of the human population are expected to live in urban areas.
Regulations should be planned to manage densities and check migration. It will Limit the supply of land and requires many households to consume more land than they would choose. It drives urban sprawl and pushes the price up of land and delivery cost of service for everybody. High cost for parking, setbacks, elevators, coverage limits, reservations for clubs, etc. prevents the low-income people to choose how much to consume of the costly resources to meet their needs and meet the legal requirements.
