Lesson 7 social economic env costs

  1. 1. The social, economic and environmental costs of globalisation http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b07w9 3wk/bbc-news-at-ten-06102016
  2. 2. Key Enquiry Question 2: What are the impacts of globalisation for countries, different groups of people and cultures and the physical environment? Lesson 7 LO: To be able to explain why global shifts in economic activity bring a range of environmental, economic and social impacts. Key terms: Infrastructure Deindustrialisation Concept Checker:  3.4a. The movement of the global economic centre of gravity to Asia via the global shift of manufacturing (China) and outsourcing of services (India) can lead to changes in the built environment that can bring benefits (infrastructure investment, waged work, poverty reduction, education and training) but also costs (loss of productive land, unplanned settlements, environmental and resource pressure.  3.4b. Some communities in developing countries have experienced major environmental problems (including air and water pollution, land degradation, over- exploitation of resources, and a loss of biodiversity), which impact on people’s health and well-being.  3.4c. Some deindustrialised regions in developing countries face social and environmental problems as a result of economic restructuring (dereliction, contamination, depopulation, crime and high unemployment).
  3. 3. Globalisation • It is mainly an economic process (your exam definitions must focus on this first!) • Social and environmental effects follow on from economic changes. • These are called externalities. A global shift has occurred. Poorly paid manufacturing work has moved from richer to poorer countries. Externalities from this have been child labour, suppression of trade unions, pollution, exploitation etc.
  4. 4. Social Environmental Economic Externalities of Globalisation
  5. 5. Negatives Deindustrialisation meant long term unemployment in previously industrial cities i.e. Manchester, Sheffield, leading to longer term social problems.
