  11. 11. There is no shortage of food in the global village but the food is not divided equally……… 50 people do not have a reliable source of food and are hungry some or all of the time 20 people are severely undernourished Only 30 people always have enough to eat
  12. 12. Air and water: fresh air and clean drinking water are necessities…. In the global village: 75 people have access to safe water in their homes or within a short distance 25 people have to spend a large part of each day getting water 60 people have access to adequate sanitation 40 people do not have access to public or household sewage disposal 68 people breathe clean air 32 people breathe air which is polluted

  14. 14. Wealth If all the money in the village were divided equally, each person would have about $6200 per year. However the money is not divided equally…. The richest 20 have more than $9000 a year The poorest 20 have less than $1 per day . The average cost of food, shelter and necessities in the village is $4000 to $5000 per year
  15. 15.

Around 3000 years ago only 1 person lived in the village 2500 years ago there were 2 people 2000 years ago there were 3 people 1000 years ago there were 5 people 500 years ago there were 8 people 350 years ago there were 10 people 200 years ago there were 17 people 100 years ago there were 32 people In 2002 there were 100 people
  17. 17. The village in the future? The rate of growth of the global village means that there will probably be 250 people in the village by the year 2100. This is an important number as many experts think that 250 is the maximum number of people the village can sustain .
