Highperforming students in less developed regions face a much different future from their counterparts’ in wealthier areas. There are no higher levels of schooling or professional job opportunities awaiting most of these children; they will likely end up working on family or neighborhood farms or starting their own small enterprises. Environmental concerns - TNCs can cause damage to the atmosphere, water and land. Many developing countries have less strict pollution laws than those in the developed world. Increased industrialisation and emission from factories located in the host countries and emissions from transportation of goods are threatening the environment.

The article on water issues in developing countries includes information on scarcity of drinking-water, poor infrastructure for water access, floods and droughts, and the contamination of rivers and large dams in developing one billion people in developing countries have inadequate access to clean water. Barriers to addressing water problems in developing nations include poverty.

(USAID) first global Water and Development Strategy. It is intended to provide a clear understanding of USAID's approach to water programming. This Strategy emphasizes how sustainable use of water is critical to save lives, promote sustain­ able development, and achieve humanitarian Size: 1MB. Development geography is a branch of geography which refers to the standard of living and its quality of life of its human inhabitants. In this context, development is a process of change that affects people's lives. It may involve an improvement in the quality of life as perceived by the people undergoing change. However, development is not always a positive process.

Industry and energy together account for 20% of water demand. More-developed countries have a much larger proportion of freshwater withdrawals for industry than less-developed countries, where. Water supply and sanitation services in developing countries face a number of challenges which make it difficult for them to meet the Millennium Development Goals.

it can collect 37 litres of water a day. Developed by Author: Rosie Spinks. In rural areas, the ground helps regulate temperatures by using a large part of the incoming solar energy to evaporate water in vegetation and soil. This evaporation, in turn, has a cooling effect.

However in cities, where less vegetation and exposed soil exists, the majority of the sun’s energy is absorbed by urban structures and asphalt. Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM). Water is a key driver of economic and social development while it also has a basic function in maintaining the integrity of the natural environment.

the percentage of the global population living in urban areas has increased sharply, trend is projected to continue 2. The numbers and sizes of urban areas are mushrooming, 26 megacities, 9 hypercities 3.

Poverty is becoming increasingly urbanized, mostly in less developed countries. Water-related efforts in the developing world are often balkanized and not sufficiently integrated to ensure sustainable water services.

There can be different strategies to ensure access to safe water depending on the country and its social needs. The different strategies may have impacts on reaching the Millennium Development Goal of reducing by half the proportion of the population that. Separate from the above-mentioned documentary, The World Development Movement campaign organization (WDM) reported in that British aid money is being used to push water privatization on poor countries —making it less likely that clean water will ever get to the poorest people.

And while poor people lose out, a group of big UK companies are profiting from this aid. Adequate provision of urban water supply and sanitation is prone to become even more difficult in the near future due to numerous changes such as urbanisation, climate change and infrastructure.

Population growth is happening fastest in urban areas of less developed regions, with the urban population estimated to grow from billion people today to billion in Even though water and sanitation access rates are generally higher in urban areas than rural, planning and infrastructure have been unable to keep pace in many regions.
