Players practice question modelling exercise

  1. 1. Different players in theDevelopment GapExplaining and evaluating the views of differentstakeholders
  2. 2. Why would these players havecontrasting views about thefuture priorities in bridging thedevelopment gap?(10 marks)
  3. 3. Development has been defined as ‘a comprehensive economic, social, cultural and politicalprocess’ which leads to an improvement in the quality of life people based on ‘their active,free and meaningful participation’ (United Nations, 1986). The views in figure 5 clearlyindicate that different people have varying perspectives about the root causes and keystrategies to reduce the development gap which in themselves are an indication of howcomplex a process it is.As a former Director General of the UN Kofi Annan, is bound to take a more global andholistic perspective. He clearly indicates that the development gap does not affect men andwomen equally - something that is borne out by a range of indicators and measures. Accessto basic services such as education, health and the basic infrastructure to support humansurvival in many situations and cultures are not distributed equally between men andwomen. Annan’s suggestion is that tackling this inequality will go to the heart of thedevelopment gap as removing the barriers to a more equal distribution of access to theseresources and services is would help to improve quality of life at a grass roots level and sotackle the development gap from the bottom up. In many situations at a lower level ofdevelopment, women play a crucial role in the ongoing reproduction and survival ofhouseholds, and are therefore ideally placed to have a direct and long-lasting impact on thequality of life people at a local level. A good example would be the impact of the Darfur Crisisin Sudan. This brings home the complex nature of development as a process - it is bothmulti-dimensional and multi-layered and improving people’s access to services and themeans of basic survival at a grassroots level are a key area in which to take action.
  4. 4. A good answer will contain:- clear structure.- detailed explanation of the ‘point’ eachstakeholder makes - AVOID simply repeatingwhat they say, but EXPLAIN IT.- good exemplification.- frequent use of technical vocabulary.- good spelling, punctuation and grammar.
  5. 5. Make clear you are explaining why the views of the differentpeople are both different and similar.Be careful not to just analysis how causes/symptoms of thedevelopment gap are complex.Timing is a key issue.15 minutes + 25% = 19 minutes40 minutes + 25% = 50 minutes
