Assignment 1: analysis on the effects of population growth

 

Due Week 4 and worth 110 points

Imagine  you have been hired as a consultant for the United Nations. You have  been asked to write an analysis on how global population growth has  caused the following problem and how it affects 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 like  electricity production, and vehicle, heating, and cooking fuels. 

The UN has asked that you choose a developing country from this list: https://www.mrs.org/developing-countries-list.

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. It also asks  that you use examples from your developing country when answering the  questions. 

Introduction

Provide an introduction of half a page minimum that addresses points a-e below.

  1. Explains the problem the UN has asked you to address in your own words;
  2. Identifies the three sections your paper will cover;
  3. Identifies the developing country you will consider;
  4. Tells the UN which causes of greenhouse gases you will explore; and
  5. Provides a one-sentence statement of your solutions at the end of your introduction paragraph.

Section I. Background

  1. What are greenhouse gases?
  2. How do greenhouse gases contribute to global warming?

Section II. How Emissions Causes Problems for the Developing World

  1. Which countries produce the most greenhouse gases? 
  2. What are the economic challenges of these emissions (include examples from your chosen country)?
  3. What are the security challenges of these emissions (include examples from your chosen country)?
  4. What are the political challenges of these emissions (include examples from your chosen country)?

Section III. Causes and Solutions of Greenhouse Gases

  1. What are two causes of greenhouse gases? 
  2. What are potential solutions to address each of the causes you identified?
  3. What is the relationship between population control and greenhouse gases?

Conclusion

  • Provide  a conclusion of half a 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 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 Causes Problems for the Developing World
    • Section III. Causes and Solutions for Greenhouse Gases 
  • Use and cite at least five credible sources in your research. A list of potential resources is available below.
  • Make sure your paper contains both in-text citations and a source list, per SWS guidelines: Refer to the Strayer Writing Standards (SWS) document for reference. 
  • Include a cover page with your name, the country you selected, the date you submitted the paper, and your instructor’s name.
