Assignment 1: Analysis of the Effects of Population Growth


Assignment 1: Analysis of the Effects of Population Growth Imagine you have been hired as a consultant for the United Nations. You have been asked to write an analysis of how global population growth has caused the following problem and how it affects climate change or population growth in a developing country of your choosing: A growing global population that consumes natural resources is partially to blame for the release of greenhouse gases since human consumption patterns lead to deforestation, soil erosion, and farming (overturned dirt releases CO2). However, the critical issue is the burning of fossil fuels (hydrocarbons) such as coal, oil, and natural gas to produce energy that is used for things such as electricity production, and vehicle, heating, and cooking fuels. The UN has asked that you choose a developing country from this list: World Bank Classifications for Developing Countries Low-Income Economies ($1,005 GNI per capita in U.S. dollars) Afghanistan Benin Burkina Faso Burundi Central African Republic Chad Comoros Congo, Dem. Rep Eritrea Ethiopia Gambia, The Guinea Guinea-Bisau Haiti Korea, Dem Rep. Liberia Madagascar Malawi Mali Mozambique Nepal Niger Rwanda Senegal Sierra Leone Somalia South Sudan Tanzania Togo Uganda Zimbabwe Lower-Middle-Income Economies ($1,006-$3,995 GNI per capita in U.S. dollars) Angola Armenia Bangladesh Bhutan Bolivia Cabo Verde Cambodia Cameroon Congo, Rep. Côte d’Ivoire Djibouti Egypt, Arab Rep. El Salvador Georgia Ghana Guatemala Honduras India Indonesia Kenya Kiribati Kosovo Kyrgyz Republic Lao PDR Lesotho Mauritania Micronesia, Fed. Sts. Moldova Mongolia Morocco Myanmar Nicaragua Nigeria Pakistan Papua New Guinea Philippines São Tomé and Principe Solomon Islands Sri Lanka Sudan Swaziland Syrian Arab Republic Tajikistan Timor-Leste Tunisia Ukraine Uzbekistan Vanuatu Vietnam West Bank and Gaza Yemen, Rep. Zambia The UN has also given you the following guidelines. Content The UN has asked that your paper contain three sections. It has asked that each section be one page (or approximately 300 words) in length and answer specific questions, identified in the outline below. The UN also asks that you use examples from your developing country when answering the questions. Introduction Provide an introduction (a half-page minimum) that addresses points a-e below. a. Explains the problem the UN has asked you to address in your own words. b. Identifies the three sections your paper will cover. c. Identifies the developing country you will consider. d. Tells the UN which causes of greenhouse gases you will explore; and e. Provides a one-sentence statement of your solutions at the end of your introduction paragraph. Section I. Background a. What are greenhouse gases? b. How do greenhouse gases contribute to global warming? Section II. How Emissions Cause Problems for the Developing World a. Which countries produce the most greenhouse gases? b. What are the economic challenges of these emissions (include examples from your chosen country)? c.

Section III. Causes of Greenhouse Gases and Solutions to the Problems Greenhouse Gases Cause a. Name two causes of greenhouse gases. b. What are the potential solutions that address each of the causes you identified? c. What is the relationship between population control and greenhouse gas emissions? Conclusion • Provide a conclusion (a half-page minimum) that includes a summary of your findings that the United Nations can use to inform future policy decisions. Success Tips • In answering each question, use examples from your developing country to illustrate your points. • The UN needs facts and objective analysis on which to base future policy decisions; avoid personal opinion and make sure your answers are based on the information you find through research. Formatting Requirements • Make sure your paper consists of four to six pages (re: 1,200 words minimum, not including the cover page, reference page, and quoted material [if any]). • Create headings for each section of your paper as follows: • Section I. Background • Section II. How Emissions Cause Problems for the Developing World • Section III.
