Yemen powerpoint

  1. 1. By: Anna FengDated: 3/24/13 Period 1
  2. 2. History of Yemen and Their Language The history of Yemen was 3,000 years ago. During 1000 BC the three most successful civilization, Minean, Sabaean, and Himyarite ruled the southern part of Saudi Arabian Peninsula. When the rise of Mesopotamia came, Yemen became a very important link for trade to the Mesopotamians and trading many goods. Throughout Yemen’s history it hade been colonized by Arabs, Ethiopians, Persians, Ottoman Turks, and the most recent the British. Yemen became independent at 22 May, 1990. Throughout history Yemen’s official language became Arabic. Yemenis also speak Somali, Soqotri, and Mehri from the other countries that colonized them.
  3. 3. The Geography Most of Yemen is completely desert and theonly water sources are the wadis that are like riversexcept they only get filled with water by the rainand dry up afterward. Water is very limited andeven when there is water most of the time it iscontaminated. Unfortunately there are no actualrivers. Along the coast there are crops but notenough to feed the whole country. With no watertheir won’t be enough food for the Yemenis.
  4. 4. The Big Problem Yemen is sadly surrounded by a huge desert andthe main problem in Yemen became water. One reasonis that water is very important to be able to supportany life and Yemen barely has any of it. Another reasonis that without freshwater they can’t grow crops forfood. Currently half of Yemen is starving. The thirdreason is not only does it make life hard in Yemen italso causes violence between its people when theyfight over it.
  5. 5. Possible Solutions Trade goods with other countries and get bottled water or fresh water.Spend money for a desalinization and take the salt from the water and sell the salt for money.Trade with other countries to give Yemen money to build desalinization factories.Get countries around the region to loan money.
  6. 6. The Possible is to trade with a country out of theThe answer to this solution Answer region since eastern African countries are really poor. Yemen can’t pay for desalinization because it is expensive and they are REALLY poor. Trading bottled water will take too long and can increase more pollution and the bottles will trash Yemen if not recycled. If they are recycled where do they go? If we are loaning with other countries Yemen might not be able to pay back. Yemen will form a trade treaty with The Democratic Republic of the Congo to trade oil and people in exchange for diamonds to build desalinization factories. The men will help build transportation for The Democratic Republic of the Congo to get more teachers. The extra salt from desalinization factories will be sold and the money will be split between the countries. In the meantime Yemen will make irrigation canals to link from the Red Sea and some hand-held filters to get water for the people and maybe some for the crops. When there is enough money the desalination factories will be modified to be more eco-friendly!
