Which means that the population doesn’t have money to utilize the decent amount of water supply. This can be originated from lack of government spending and uneven distribution of the natural resources. However, the physical water scarcity affects all regions where people lives with the limited water supply, such as Eastern Australia, Middle East, North Africa, Central and Eastern Asia. Physical and economic water scarcity Physical water scarcity means that there is limited water supply. The physical water scarcity appear when the lands water capacity doesn’t have the ability to provide the water required for the population in the area.
1). Erosion causes on-site loss of agricultural potential as well as an off-site effect of downstream movement of sediment, that can result in floods and silting of reservoirs (Directorate Communication, National Department of Agriculture 1). Eventually these problems contribute to the limited distribution of quality food to individuals caused by a great loss of potential agricultural land (What Is Soil Erosion? 1). Natural activities are one of the many causes of soil erosion and unfortunately there is no way of preventing erosion from these activities.
Desertification crisis affecting 168 countries worldwide, and studies show it? Were considered a global problem because of their economic, social and environmental, especially on developing countries dramatically, because they live in the ecosystems of dry lands most vulnerable to land degradation and desertification - those areas. On the economic front, land dry the population suffer from the poorest economic conditions because of desertification affects food productivity and reduces the potential regional and universality, as well as the food deficit in the threatened areas (arid and semi-arid), and a decrease of agricultural land and a shortage of water resources and poor quality and do not forget that the livelihoods of many farmers deteriorate? That desertification leads to the destruction of life as well as vegetable extinction of some groups of animals is one of the biggest reasons for the loss of biological diversity in which dramatically reduces the chances of food production. And from the social level, desertification in all continents happens except Antarctica affects the lives of millions of people ways, the impact of this desertification and drought on a large proportion of the poor in this land, and caused a decrease in the level of welfare of the individual dramatically, particularly education, health, utilities and services due to slow growth infrastructure and the varied levels of these causes of altered rates of
The support for my claim comes from the research conducted in 2014. Belayneh has claimed that “since the only chance of the population to do agricultural activity is the rain, people and the economy of Ethiopia is highly affected by the water shortage.” What they mean is that the water shortage problem seriously affects the agricultural production because Ethiopians have no access to a water source other than rain. So far, we’ve seen the problems caused by Water Shortage in Ethiopia. Now let’s examine how these problems could be solved. B.
INTRODUCTION Purified water is essential for living a healthy life as such everyone should have access to it. Drinking water conditions have great impacts on people especially in the rural and remote areas where access to safe drinking water is very important. Drinking untreated water may cause to fatal diseases. Statistics shows that these diseases resulted in ninety percent of all deaths of children under five years old in developing countries, due to low immunization of children to infection. Most of the people in the rural areas are not able enough to use water filters or buy mineral water bottles.
Worldwide, extreme poverty continues to be a rural phenomenon despite increasing urbanization. Of the world’s 1.4 billion extremely poor people, 70 percent live in rural areas, most of them depend partly, or to a large degree, on farming (IFAD, 2011). Poverty can be persistent (chronic) or transient, but transient poverty, if acute, can trap succeeding generations. Most rural community development efforts aim to relieve causes or symptoms of rural poverty; as a consequence the range of explanations on rural poverty has proliferated. On one hand rural poverty, as defined by economists, means that the consumption or income level of a person falls below a certain threshold necessary to meet basic needs.
This report provides information about water logging and its adverse effects. The report finds that water logging has worst effects on productivity. It is agreed that one of the greatest problem in our agriculture land is “water logging”. This paper highlights the production loss or many different negative effects of water logging and highlights the economic loss due to the problem of water logging which threaten the sustainability of agriculture production. Water logging refers to the saturation of soil with water, usually through irrigation, resulting in a condition under which most crop plants cannot grow.
A so-called rural exodus or migration of agricultural labor is common nowadays due to the ideology that urban sectors provide an array of job opportunities, easy access to health care and social services that the provinces cannot offer. In the film ‘Metro Manila,’ Oscar represents the whole population of local farmers who are being oppressed and deceived. Problems like high cost of inputs, low price of palay, lack of capital, labor problem, lack of postharvest facilities, pest and diseases and irrigation system are depicted perfectly in the film. Also, it shows how an average Filipino farmer lives in extreme poverty and the fact that a trip to Manila is tempting in seeking a better
Today, industries and agriculture are the leading cause of the water’s shortage. The multiple role of water in food production (ingredient, cleaning and sanitation, manufacturing processes) makes its use more than vital. Review The main source of food for the population of the world is agriculture and livestock. Agricultural
As we know, there are lacks of water analysis in rural areas especially due to livestock farming waste discharge in Malaysia. Moreover, inadequate water analysis data due to constrain budget and bad planning are the regular problems happened in our country. In addition, some laboratory water quality test is time consuming and required a relatively large water sample to analyze it. Besides, the results obtain is not correct due to bad quality of handling of laboratory testing on the water samples. Individual or group of parameters may be used as an indicator of Pollution status.
