How can international efforts reduce global inequalities

  1. 1. How can international efforts REDUCE global inequalities?<br />
  2. 2. What do YOU think?<br />
  3. 3. To work!<br />1. SELF HELP – improving their own quality of life.<br />How?<br />Moving from rural-urban areas (water, food and jobs easier to get)<br />Improving their homes<br />Communities working together – building schools, etc.<br />Example: Kibera projects….<br />
  4. 4. Around 7million farmers in 58 poorer countries benefit from this symbol….<br />Watch the film about talking bananas to help understand this….<br />
  5. 5. 2. Fair Trade <br />Fair trade is all about paying producers of good in poorer parts of the world a FAIR PRICE.<br />The extra money paid is invested in local schools, water projects, hospitals, etc.<br />Producers who provide a good quality of life (safe, no discrimination) are only allowed to participate in this project.<br />BUT: lots produced, world prices go down – all can suffer still….<br />Example:KuapaKokoo – Divine Chocolate / Café Paramo – Heathfield school<br />
  6. 6. Task:<br />Look at the table on page 263.<br />Answer:<br />Q1. a. Choose 4 crops from the table. Draw a line graph to show the increase in production from 1999 – 2007. use one line per crop, with each line a different colour. Plot years on x-axis and production on y-axis.<br />b. Describe the trend shown in your graph. Is it the same for each crop?<br />C. Do you and your family choose to buy Fairtrade products? Name a few. Why?<br />
  7. 7. What’s the problem with TRADE?<br />
  8. 8. 3. Trading Groups<br />These are groups of countries that make agreements to REDUCE the barriers to trade – this INCREASES trade between member countries = more money if a poorer country joins.<br />BUT- not easy for poorer countries to join. Hard to export good to countries that are part of a trading group. Slows down development in some cases. <br />E.g. NAFTA – North American Free Trade Agreement between USA, Canada and Mexico. <br />
  9. 9. FAIR TRADE and TRADING GROUPS<br />=<br />HELPS TO INCREASE THE MONEY MADE FROM TRADE<br />
  10. 10. 4. The DEBT of poorer countries can be reduced.<br />“Each year Africa sends more money to Western bankers in interest on its debts than it receives in foreign aid from these countries”<br />
  11. 11. 1. DEBT ABOLITION <br />This is when some or all of a countries debt is cancelled. The money can then be used to develop. <br />Example: In 2005, Zambia had $4 million of debt cancelled. In 2006, Zambia had enough money to start a free healthcare scheme for millions of people in rural areas = improved quality of life.<br />Organisations like “Drop the Debt” <br />
  12. 12. 2. Conservation swops<br />“Debt for nature swops”<br />This is when parts of a countries debt is paid off in exchange for investment in CONSERVATION. <br />E.g. In 2008, USA reduced Peru’s debt by $25million in exchange for Peru conserving (looking after / protecting) its rainforests.<br />
