  1. 1. Aid – money or resources given or lent on favourable terms to developing countries. Appropriate technology or intermediate technology – simple or small- scale machinery and tools that, because they are cheap and easy to use and maintain, may be most use in developing countries. Balance of trade – the difference in value between imports and exports Bilateral aid – direct from government to government Birth rate – the number of live births for every 1000 of the population per year Brand name – a name or trademark that is well known and easily recognisable Charity – voluntary organisation that provides help for those in need Correlation – the relationship between two sets of information Death rate – the number of people dying per 1000 of the population Developed country – 1st world, rich north, MEDC, a country that has a lot of money, many services and a high standard of living Developed world/first world/rich north – the countries that have a money economy and a highly developed industrial sector. 1
  2. 2. Developing country – 3rd world, poor south, LEDC, a country that is often quite poor, has few services and a low standard of living Development – involves changes that usually bring improvement and growth. Countries can be at different stages of development depending on how rich or poor they are Employment structure – proportion of people working in primary, secondary, tertiary or quaternary Exports – goods sold to another country Fair trade – giving a fair price for a product, benefits the producers (farmers etc.) Global companies – see Transnational Globalisation – the process by which corporations, ideas and lifestyles are spreading around the world with increasing ease Gross domestic product (GDP) – the total value of all the goods (such as food, cars etc.) and services (tourism, banking etc.) produced by a country or region within a country annually (in one year). Usually expressed as per capita i.e. per person. HDI – human development index – a way of measuring the development of a country using three indicators, life expectancy, literacy rates and the purchasing power of money. Imports – goods bought from another country Infrastructure – the services a settlement requires, such as energy supply, sewage, roads, shops, hospitals, police etc. Interdependence – when countries work together and rely on each other for help LEDC – less economically developed country – another term for the developing or third world or poor south. 2
  3. 3. Life expectancy – the average number of years a person can expect to live Literacy rate – the proportion of people who can read and write Long-term aid – over a long period of time e.g. builds homes, improve infrastructure, build schools etc. Manufactured goods – secondary industry products such as cars, computers and electronics MEDC – more economically developed country, rich north, developed world, first world. Multilateral aid – through international organisations such as the World Bank, IMF (international monetary fund), EU (European Union) etc. Multinationals – see Transnational Newly industrialised countries (NICs) – mainly in East Asia, have undergone rapid and successful industrialisation since the 1960’s, e.g. China, South Korea Non-government organisation – charity not governed by a government Over dependence – depend too much on just one thing e.g. one crop, which might fail due to disease or drought etc. Primary industry – collecting natural resources, farming, fishing, forestry and mining Quality of life – a measure of how contented people are with their lives and the environment in which they live and work Quaternary industry – an industry that provides information and expertise, such as microelectronics, research etc. Raw materials – natural resources that are used to make things Resources – things that can be useful to people 3
  4. 4. Secondary industry – natural resources are turned into goods, manufactured Self help scheme – where local people are involved in improving conditions for themselves e.g. building better housing or reducing soil erosion Shantytown – group o unplanned shelters constructed from cheap or waste materials such as cardboard, wood, corrugated iron. Commonly located on the outskirts of cities in developing countries, or within cities on derelict land or near rubbish tips. Often lack services such as electricity, running water, toilets etc. They are overcrowded resulting from mass emigration from rural areas in response to pull factors. Short-term aid – emergency relief e.g. after an earthquake people need shelter, water, food and medicine Single product economy – rely on just one or two products, which can cause problems Social indicators – measures of development e.g. life expectancy, literacy rates etc. Standard of living – how well off a person or country is Sustainable development – a way to improve people’s standard of living and quality of life without wasting resources or harming the environment for future use Sweatshops – factories where people have to work long hours for very little money Tertiary industry – service jobs that provide a service for people e.g. nursing Tiger economy – based on industrial growth that is rapid and competitive e.g. South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan Trade – the movement and sale of goods between countries 4
  5. 5. Trade deficit – when a country spends more on its imports than it earns from its exports Trade surplus – when a country earns more from its exports than it spends on its imports Transnational – large business with offices and factories all over the world, cheap labour and low production costs in developing countries Voluntary aid – from charities such as Oxfam, Action Aid etc. low cost schemes based on simple technology which benefit local people 5
  6. 6. 6Interactions
  7. 7. STANDARD OF LIVING This is to do with income and wealth. It’s about how many possessions you have, the luxuries you can afford, whether you are rich or poor. Words associated with standard of living are; income, employment, class, GDP, education etc. An easy way to remember it is the idea of a person who seems to have everything; tow houses, two cars, two T.V.’s etc. but on psychiatrist because they may be stressed. (economic development) QUALITY OF LIFE This is to do with a person’s general well being and enjoyment of life. You can still be poor and happy. It’s not about money but the personal relationships, stress, health and enjoyment of life. It is about emotional, social and physical well being. In some countries/cultures, this can be to do with freedom from slavery, torture, political freedom, religious freedom, discrimination, the right to vote, women’s rights etc. An easy way to remember it is the idea of only one house, one car, one T.V. but no psychiatrist! (social development) 7

Which statistics surprised you? Which was the biggest shock to you? ១3 On a large sheet of paper design a poster with the title: If we could shrink the world. Use a variety of techniques to show the information about the village of 100 people. For example, you could use graphs drawn by hand or on a computer using a spreadsheet program, along with pictograms, diagrams or cartoons. N 20 would be from the more developed world, 80 from the less developed world N 60 would be from Asia, 13 from Africa, 12 from Europe, 9 from Latin America, 5 from North America and 1 from the rest of the world N 49 would be female, 51 would be male N 70 would be non-white, 30 would be white N 80 would have access to clean water N 56 would have access to sanitation N 30 would be smokers N 11 would be HIV infected N 47 would live in urban areas, 53 in rural areas N only 5 people would be involved in agriculture N 30 would be aged between 0 and 14 years, 63 between 16 and 64 and 7 older than 65 N life expectancy would be 66 years N 14 would speak Chinese and only 6 English N 25 would have televisions N 14 would have cars N 60 would have electricity N 10 would have a telephone N 67 would be non-Christian, 33 would be Christian N 6 people would own 59% of the world’s wealth – and all 6 would be from the USA N 50 would not have enough food, 80 would live in poor housing N 70 would be unable to read N only 1 would have a higher education N only 1 (yes, only one) would own a computer. 8 Working with a partner, colour code or number the above statements under the headings:

  31. 31. Review What is meant by the term development? Development is the process of change which improves the well-being of a society in terms of material wealth and quality of life. Development includes;  Access to education  Better food supply  Better working conditions  Decreased infant mortality  Improved health care  Longer life expectancy  Secure employment  Security in old age  Warm dry housing  Water supply and sanitation A developed country is a rich country. It may be endowed with natural resources that have been used to create wealth. Most developed countries are industrialized and incomes are high. After fulfilling the everyday needs for water, food, shelter and clothing, most people have money left over (disposable income) for buying consumer goods and luxuries for the home and for themselves, or for spending on entertainment, leisure and travel. A large, productive service sector develops. A less developed country is a poor country. In many of these countries there is still a great dependence upon farming, which has not been modernized and from which output is low. Although industry is increasing in some countries, in others it still makes only a small contribution to the economy. For all but a few people who are very rich, there is a constant struggle to achieve even the bare necessities of life. With insufficient food and without clean water, health suffers, particularly that of infants and children. Medical care is sparse. Access to education is limited as well, with the resulting low levels of literacy and the chances of a child improving upon the standard of living and quality of life of its parents are not good. Living in dirty, cramped conditions is the lot of many of millions of people in South America, Africa and Asia. Wealth is an economic factor, but variations in wealth affect quality of life, health, literacy and housing, which are examples of social conditions. Both economic and social measures of development are used. For example, life expectancy, literacy rates, birth rates, death rates, population growth etc. The Human Development Index was introduced by the United Nations to measure development combining economic factors of wealth (GNP) and social factors of Health (life expectancy) and education (literacy rates). 31

DEVELOPMENT WORKSHEET PUPIL’S BOOK PAGE 24 Quality of life in the UK (1) Name ________________________________________________________________________________ 2.2 64 earthworks 3 teacher’s resource book © JOHN MURRAY Your task 1 Look at the table below. It contains data for three measures of the quality of life in UK regions. The regions are shown in this map. 2 Complete three maps on Sheet 2.3 to show regional differences for each quality of life measure. a) Find the range of data in the table for each measure. For example, average income per family ranges from £321 per week in the North-east to £482 per week in the South-east. b) Divide the range into four bands which are roughly equal in size. Write the bands on the key beside each map on Sheet 2.3. The key on the first map is done for you. c) Choose one colour. Use a different shade or pattern to colour the regions in each band. Colour the key. Colour each map using the data in the table. 3 Work out a quality of life index for each region. One way to do this is to rank the regions according to each of the three measures in the table. a) Write the rank position for each region in the empty columns in the table. One has been started for you. Add the three rank scores for each region to work out the quality of life index and write it in the last column of the table. The lower the score, the better the quality of life. 0 100km Scotland North-east Yorkshire East Midlands Eastern London South-east South-west Wales West Midlands North-west Northern Ireland Quality of life Average Rank Unemployment Rank Car Rank Quality measure income per (%) ownership of life family per (%) index Region week (£) Eastern 427 3 5.2 78 East Midlands 369 6.3 74 London 454 2 9.1 62 North-east 321 9.8 60 North-west 377 6.9 71 Northern Ireland 326 7.5 70 Scotland 367 8.5 64 South-east 482 1 5.2 77 South-west 398 5.2 80 Wales 359 8.4 68 West Midlands 360 6.8 68 Yorkshire 365 8.1 68 b) Complete the final map on Sheet 2.3 to show the quality of life in each region.

Kenya, a developing country NEW KEY GEOGRAPHY Connections pages 114–115 Improving life in a shanty town 6.8a NEW KEY GEOGRAPHY Connections Teacher’s Resource © Nelson Thornes 2006166 ១1 Imagine you have the chance to improve life in a shanty town of poor quality, self-built houses on the fringe of Nairobi. You can provide money and equipment for two years but, with so many real emergencies occurring around the world, there is no guarantee of more money in the years ahead. ១2 You have 300 shanty town credits to spend in your first year and another 250 in the second year. You can help the community with any of the projects listed in the table below. The main aim of people living in squatter settlements is to survive and improve themselves. Unemployment is not an option. They have to do something to survive. They do this by working hard and making money. They work to improve their self-built homes. The process of improving their quality of life is known as self-help. Project Shanty town credits Install a small petrol electricity generator. 25 Install a village pump giving clean, safe water. 45 Pay for a teacher for one year. 25 Set up a locally-run health and family planning centre. 25 Install a drainage and sewerage network. 35 Pay for a government advisor/expert. 25 Build 100 m of concrete road with street paving. 20 Fit solar cells to hut roofs, providing electric lighting. 40 Set up a community centre. 30 Pay for a monthly doctor’s visit to the shanty. 20 Set up a factory employing people in poorly paid jobs. 120 Pay for a weekly nurse’s visit to the shanty. 30 Build a latrine. 10 Pay for a weekly refuse collection. 15 Set up a self-help work scheme. 10 Electricity connection for an area. 35 Pay for medical supplies. 25 Set up a communal water tap. 30 Install a sealed cesspit, emptied regularly. 20 Pay for water connection per building. 20 Pay for electric connection to one building. 15 Training for one teacher. 20 Paint for one house. 10 Provide sports areas; 25 x 25 m grass. 5 Set up street lighting per street. 20 Send delegation from community to city authorities. 10 Build and run an orphanage for one year. 20 Repair and build a small, new brick house. 10 Remove a house in the path of mudslides. 5 Widen selected streets so that emergency services and waste collection services can gain access. 15 Use labour from within the shanty so that residents can develop and use new skill. 20 51
  52. 52. ១3 Who should have the most say in deciding about the projects, you or the shanty town community? Give reasons for your answer. ១4 Create a PowerPoint presentation for the Project Director to outline your spending proposal for the scheme, and use ICT to create an eye-catching poster to promote the scheme. ១5 Imagine that you are an estate agent in Nairobi trying to sell a self-built house in a shanty town.

  63. 63. GLOBALISATION AND THE FASHION INDUSTRY 63
  64. 64. WHAT IS GLOBALISATION? You have probably heard the expression ‘it’s a small world!’ People have been saying it for years but now it is true. Just check out the labels on your clothes – almost certainly they have been made in another part of the world. Turn on your computer and the internet will give you access to websites almost anywhere. Everyone in the world is becoming more connected, with improved transport and communication, which have made links with other people and countries around the world so much quicker and easier. These links have increased at such a rapid rate that we now have a new word for it; GLOBALISATION. This means the way that companies, ideas and lifestyles are spreading more and more easily around the world. It has made it much easier for goods and services produced in one place to be sold, used and seen elsewhere. Fashion is a good example of this. Large countries, who can afford it, can locate all over the world, usually searching for bigger markets and higher profits. These are called TRANSNATIONAL CORPORATIONS (TNCs). The headquarters are usually located in developed countries such as the USA, with smaller offices and factories in developing countries, where labour is cheap and production costs are low. In the past 30 years, TNCs or MULTINATIONAL COMPANIES have grown in size and influence. Some of the largest ones make more money than all of the African countries put together. The world’s 500 largest companies now control at least 70% of world trade and produce more than half of the world’s manufactured goods. Being so large, they also influence consumer tastes and lifestyles and are responsible for many of today’s scientific and technological breakthroughs. Many people are concerned about the effects of TNCs. They argue that they locate in poorer countries just to make a profit and pay low wages, particularly to women and young children. Others say that without transnational’s the poorer countries would simply not be able to develop their own industries. People would have no jobs at all and their future would be very bleak. 64

This is called globalisation. The growth of a transnational corporation (TNC) is an example of globalisation. Fashion and sport NEW KEY GEOGRAPHY Interactions pages 70–71 What is globalisation? 4.3 ១1 Working with a partner, read about the advantages and disadvantages of TNCs. Decide if each statement is an advantage or a disadvantage and colour the statements as follows: N Colour the first circle red if the statement shows an advantage. N Colour the second circle green if the statement shows a disadvantage. Be careful! This activity is not as easy as it first seems. You may need to use both colours on some statements. Advantage Disadvantage TNCs employ 50 million people worldwide. Workers learn new skills. Jobs provided are usually not very well paid. One billion people live on less than a dollar a day. The creation of manufacturing jobs in LEDCs has led to improvements in living standards. Factories provide work for local people. World trade is unfair and poor countries will never get a fair deal. Globalisation dilutes national differences and creates a single global culture. Often the profits made by the TNC are taken out of the country, back to the country where the TNC has its headquarters. Globalisation of trade is the answer to poverty and injustice in the poorest countries. One-fifth of all the products in the world are made by the world’s largest 600 companies. Increasing the demand for luxury items has created new markets and attracted more manufacturers to locate in LEDCs. Workers have a regular income so they can buy things to improve their standard of living. In some cases TNCs have polluted the local environment. The TNC pays taxes that can be spent on improving things like hospitals and public transport. Working conditions can be poor, e.g. long hours. Two-thirds of the world’s trade is controlled by 500 TNCs. Some TNCs operate in a socially responsible way, for example by giving money to charity or by trying to improve the lives of the people who work for them at the same time as making profits. TNCs make it impossible for people in poor countries to make any money and improve their lives. 69

In fact, there is probably no place on earth today that owes more than 10% of its everyday life to discoveries made by members of its own society. ១1 Read the passage below that tells the beginning to an ordinary man’s day over 70 years ago. ១2 Each one of us, every day, is connected to people we will never meet, who live in places we will never visit. Give five examples of how globalisation affects you. Think about the food you eat, the clothes you wear and what you do in your spare time. ១3 Explain what the phrase ‘the world is getting smaller’ means to you. Give examples from your own life that demonstrate this. The American citizen awakes in a bed built on a pattern which was invented in the Middle East, assembled in Northern Europe and shipped to America. He throws back the duvet covers made from cotton and wool from sheep domesticated in India and spun and woven by processes invented in the Middle East. He slips into his moccasins, invented by the American Indians, and goes to the bathroom, whose fixtures are a mixture of European and American inventions. He takes off his silk (the use of which was discovered in China) pyjamas, a garment invented in India, and washes with soap invented by the French and shaves, a habit copied from Ancient Egypt. Returning to the bedroom, he gets dressed in clothes imitating the skin clothing of the nomads of Asia and ties around his neck a strip of brightly coloured cloth which is all that remains of the shoulder shawls worn by 17th-century Croatians. Before going out for breakfast he looks through the window, made of glass invented in Egypt, and as it is raining puts on overshoes made of rubber discovered by the American Indians and takes an umbrella, invented in south-eastern Asia. He wears a hat made of felt, a material invented in Asia. On his way to breakfast he stops to buy a paper, paying for it with coins, an ancient Lydian invention and using an Indo-European language. At the restaurant his plate is made of pottery invented in China, his knife is made of steel, an alloy first made in southern India, and his fork and spoon are medieval Italian inventions. He begins his breakfast with an orange from the eastern Mediterranean, or perhaps a piece of African melon. With this he has coffee, an Abyssinian plant, with cream and sugar. Both the domestication of cows and the idea of milking them originated in the Middle East, while sugar was first made in India. He goes on to waffles, cakes made by a Scandinavian technique. Over these he pours maple syrup, invented by the American Indians. As a side dish he chooses the egg of a species of bird domesticated in China and thin strips of the flesh of an animal domesticated in eastern Asia that has been salted and smoked by a process developed in northern Europe. After breakfast he settles back to smoke, consuming a plant domesticated in Brazil in a cigarette, derived from Mexico. While smoking he reads the news of the day, imprinted in characters invented by the Ancient Semites upon a material invented in China by a process invented in Germany, thankful that he is 100 per cent American.

  74. 74. How is the fashion industry changing? The fashion industry has changed in recent years. It has become a growth industry and has taken advantage of globalisation by spreading its operations throughout the world. So, why has this happened? The main reason is that people living in richer countries have become increasingly well off and can afford to spend more money on clothes than in the past. They are able to buy clothes more often and can afford the more expensive, designer fashions that have become popular. Many are attracted by the brand or label as much as by the product itself. It is these brand-name companies that have most increased their sales and are leading the way in seeking more profitable ways of manufacturing their products. In the past, most clothing companies produced goods in their own factory. The traditional location of the factory was determined by the availability of transport and the nearness of raw materials, power sources, workers and markets for its goods. This is now very different. Most large brand-name clothing companies have become transnational corporations that have offices and factories all over the world. They have fund that going global reduces the costs and increases profits. These companies include big names like Gap, Timberland, Reebok, Nike and Primark. Nike is a typical TNC. It has its main office in the Portland Oregon in the USA, where most of its product design, marketing and administration is done and its production lines in developing countries, mostly South East Asia, where labour is cheap and costs are low (£2.50 per day). Nike has factories in 40 countries and employs over 500,000 people. As the designs and styles of trainers and sportswear change constantly, it is also cheaper to employ manual workers, who are readily available in these places, than machines. This is because it is easier, faster and cheaper to get employees to adapt to the new designs than to change or buy new machinery. Transnational’s can bring many benefits to poorer countries but they can also cause problems. One of the main problems concerns working conditions. In the fashion industry some TNCs have been accused of creating sweat shops where people are forced to work long hours for very little regard for health and safety. Not all the clothes factories in developing countries are bad; some are now more modern than some factories in the UK. One of the reasons for this improvement is that companies like Gap and Nike have rules to control working conditions in factories producing their goods. These rules are a response to criticism that they have been exploiting workers in poorer countries in order to increase profits. However, as you will see when we look at Primark, that these rules are not regularly checked and are often ignored. Many workers are still being exploited and often the company does not even know about it. 74

A I like to wear fashionable clothes. I’m more interested in what the clothes look like than where they come from or conditions in foreign factories. C But if we didn’t buy the clothes and trainers, then those poor people would get no money at all. K I mean, with much of the world starving, who can in all conscience wear such clothes? H I don’t think workers in the fashion industry are poorly treated. Their wages may be less than the legal minimum, but it’s better than having no job at all. G Powerful advertising forces teenagers to keep up with their friends by buying expensive brand names. D If you have this sort of money, you should use it to make a difference!

Do not shade the borders. ១3 Choose different colours and shade the borders to further sort the case for and against buying branded clothes into economic, social and ethical arguments. ១4 Many of our biggest brands make their clothing in very poor countries and their workers have appalling working conditions. How far should we, as consumers, worry about this fact? ១5 Should fashion have a conscience? Find out how many of your branded clothes are made in devel- oping countries. How do you feel about this now? Many clothes and shoes are made in developing countries. Here labour is cheaper and factory costs are lower, so brand-owners can make bigger profits. But one of the main problems is to do with working conditions. Textile and shoe industries are often the first ones to be set up in developing countries. Raw materials are available locally and there are many people available for work. There is competition for clothing contracts and small companies accept very low payment in order to win the contract. Workers in many factories have to endure poor working conditions and abuse of their human rights. The work can be done by hand, so expensive machinery is not needed. Developing countries are becoming more interdependent with important trading partners in the developed world. Clothes factories employ millions of workers, most of them women. Wages enable workers to support their families, who most often live in the poorer rural areas. In some sportswear and textile factories, people can only earn £3 a day even if they work for over 12 hours. Most of developing countries’ trade is with the more developed countries. Some workers have only two days off a month and they often work 14 hours a day. During peak production periods, workers sometimes work through the night. Discipline in factories is very strict, with fines for talking, arriving late or for refusing to work overtime. If workers miss three days of work in a row they may be sacked. Sportswear and textile companies provide employment for people who otherwise would have no work. Sportswear and textile factories make products that many people want to wear. In some sportswear and textile factories there are fair rules to control working conditions. Investment by sportswear companies leads to factory closure and unemployment in richer countries. Wages may not be as low as they appear, because the cost of living is often much lower than in the UK. Large factories are able to provide the working conditions that companies in the West insist on. The ‘codes of conduct’ insisted on by retailers and consumer associations are also changing conditions in sportswear and textile factories. Sportswear and textile companies have no commitment to a particular country. They can move production from country to country, searching for the cheapest labour. 81 3 81
  82. 82. 4.3 INDUSTRY WORKSHEET PUPIL’S BOOK PAGES 70–1 Child labour – then and now Name ________________________________________________________________________________ Children have always had to work. Until the end of the nineteenth century in Britain, children were an important part of the workforce, just as they still are in many poorer countries today. The sight of children working was a common one during the Industrial Revolution in this country. Children as young as four or five worked in factories or down coal mines. Few people at the time saw anything wrong with this. Childhood was not regarded as being different from other stages in people’s lives, and so children were treated as little adults. They were expected to learn skills that would give them a job for the rest of their lives. This was particularly true for poor people who were seen as a burden on society if they did not work. Gradually, during the nineteenth century, the harsh conditions under which some children were expected to work came to light, and attitudes began to change. The Factory Commission of 1833 revealed that children as young as six were working 14 to 16 hours a day. Young children were also used in mines where their small bodies were able to crawl along low tunnels. Drawings published in 1842 shocked many people who had no idea that such working conditions existed, and laws were passed to ban children under ten from working in mines. The number of children working in factories began to fall with the introduction of new machinery. But the most important factor that brought child labour in Britain to an end was the introduction of compulsory education for all children under ten in 1880. Throughout the twentieth century the school leaving age continued to rise until it reached its present age of sixteen. Around the world today, it is estimated that there are 250 million child workers. This number does not include the large number of children doing domestic work. If it did the total would probably double. Like Britain in the nineteenth century, many of these countries do not provide education for all their children. In sub-Saharan Africa (Africa south of the Sahara Desert) almost half of six to eleven year olds do not attend school, mainly due to lack of money to pay for schools and teachers. It would cost about $2 billion to pay for education for every child in this region, much less than the same countries have to spend each year to repay their debts. Your task 1 Read the information on this sheet together with pages 70–1 in the Pupil’s Book. 2 In a group, discuss your ideas about child labour. Is it a good thing or not? What are the problems and benefits of child labour? 3 Read the ideas in the box on the right.

So, its exports do not earn as much as it had hoped and the country is in even more debt. But the export prices for these low value goods have dropped yet again. So, once again, the country borrows more money it cannot afford to repay. Which then leaves it short of money to pay for imports, and for schools, hospitals and other projects. But it still has to pay the interest on its original loans. And now the money it earns each year is used just to pay off increasing debts. The next year the country sells crops and minerals to other countries, as usual. So, once again, the country borrows more money and doesn’t earn enough. So, the country finds it has to borrow more and more money to survive. The country ends up paying back several times the original loan. 88

Lack of transport makes movement of people and goods difficult. Country has few exports which means little money to buy essential goods that it lacks.

  102. 102. WE FREQUENTLY come across the abbreviation NGO in geography lessons, on the television and in newspapers. The term non-governmental organisation (NGO) came into common usage in 1945 when the United Nations used it in its Charter to distinguish between intergovernmental agencies and international private organisations (NGOs). Some 25,000 organisations, covering a huge variety of objectives, now qualify as international NGOs. The influence of NGOs on international policy has increased markedly in the last few decades. They have successfully promoted: • new environmental agreements • women’s rights • arms control and disarmament measures • the rights of children, the disabled, the poor and indigenous peoples. The NGOs that people seem to know most about are those such as Oxfam, CARE, Cafod and WaterAid which seek to improve economic and social development in poor countries (Figure 1). Such organisations often combine their operations when major human catastrophes occur (flood, drought, earthquake, etc) or when they want to exert maximum pressure on international opinion. The most recent example of the latter is the Jubilee 2000 Campaign on Third World debt. A mounting international NGO campaign is demanding fairer economic policies from the World Trade Organisation (WTO), the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank. Kofi Annan, the Secretary General of the United Nations, has said that NGOs are ‘the conscience of humanity’. Large NGOs such as Oxfam can have a big impact on public attitudes. In a recent report (2002), Oxfam aimed to shame the world’s big four coffee sellers (Nestlé, Procter & Gamble, Sara Lee and Kraft) for ‘impoverishing 25 million farmers’ in poor nations. Oxfam argues that the global market for coffee needs a complete overhaul to ensure that farmers get a fairer (higher) price for their coffee beans. NGOs are usually financed from the following sources: • membership dues – the traditional source of funding • government grants • retail operations, eg charity shops • private foundations, corporations and wealthy individuals. Increasingly, relief and development NGOs receive large grants from governments’ international assistance programmes. Such grants represented, as a proportion of income: • 1.5% in 1970 • 35% in 1988 • over 40% in 2000. There are several reasons why the role of NGOs in development has increased: 1 They have developed considerable expertise over a number of decades in many different countries. 2 They have a more successful track record than other attempts at promoting development. Development is generally targeted very carefully and the impact of projects is also carefully monitored. 3 They concentrate on small and medium-scale projects that benefit genuinely poor countries rather than the better-off in LEDCs. Many of the really large-scale Series 15 Spring issue Unit 305 NGOs: Their Role in Promoting Development © 2004 Nelson Thornes GeoActive Online This page may be photocopied for use within the purchasing institution only.

Bilateral aid, from one country to another, is frequently criticised because it often seems to serve the interests of the donor nation as much as, if not more than, the country receiving aid. According to James Paul, executive director of Global Policy Forum: ‘Globalisation has created both cross-border issues that NGOs address and cross-border communities of interest that NGOs represent. National governments cannot do either task as effectively or as legitimately. In the globalising world of the 21st century, NGOs will have a growing international calling.’ However, some writers are concerned by the increasing funding of NGOs by governments, saying that it exposes NGOs to pressure from governments and limits their capacity to act independently. Case Study WaterAid WaterAid was established in 1981. Its first project was in Zambia but its operations spread quickly to other countries (Figure 2), and it completed its 1000th project in 1993. WaterAid is the UK’s only major charity dedicated exclusively to the provision of safe domestic water, sanitation and hygiene education to the world’s poorest people. These three crucial elements provide the building blocks for all other development. Without them communities remain stuck in a cycle of disease and poverty. The combination of safe water, sanitation and hygiene education maximises health benefits and promotes development (Figure 3). The combined benefits of safe water, sanitation and hygiene education can reduce incidences of childhood diarrhoea by up to 95%. A child dies every 15 seconds from diseases associated with lack of access to safe water and adequate sanitation. Figure 4 shows water supply and sanitation coverage for the 15 countries in which WaterAid operates. In the longer term, communities are able to plan and build infrastructure which enables them to cope better in times of hardship.

Page 3 of 4 projects, life in times of drought is eased because: • previously in times of drought women in particular would spend hours in search of water, leaving little time to find food • children would also miss out on education in the search for water • cattle can also be watered, rather than sold or left to die because of water shortage • during famines, with sanitation, water and hygiene people are sick less often and so are better able to fend off disease. Many more people have become aware of the activities of WaterAid over the past year or so because 2003 has been the UN International Year of Freshwater. WaterAid works by helping local organisations set up low-cost projects using appropriate (intermediate) technology that can be run by the recipient community itself. The organisation also aims to influence the policies of other important organisations such as governments, to secure and protect the right of poor people to safe, affordable water and sanitation. WaterAid has recently asked people to sign a petition entitled ‘Water Matters’, which urges the UK government to: 1 urge all UN member governments to agree an action plan for meeting the UN agreed target to halve the number of people without access to drinking water by 2015, and ensure that each country has national policies for managing water resources in place by 2005 2 promote and secure an international agreement and action plan to halve the number of people without adequate sanitation by 2015 3 increase the UK’s official development assistance to the agreed UN target of 0.7% of GNP, prioritising water supply, sanitation and water resources within that increase, and urge other MEDCs to do the same. Mali, in West Africa, is one of the world’s poorest nations (Figure 5). It is one of the countries to benefit recently from a WaterAid project. Figure 4: Water supply and sanitation in countries where WaterAid operates Source: WaterAid The natural environment of Mali is harsh, and is deteriorating. Rainfall levels, which are already low, are falling further and desertification is spreading. Currently 65% of the country is desert or semi-desert. Eleven million people still lack access to safe water. WaterAid has been active in the country since 2000. Its main concern is that the fully privatised water industry frequently fails to provide services to the poorest urban and rural areas. It is running a pilot scheme in the slums surrounding Mali’s capital Bamako, providing clean water and sanitation services to the poorest people. Its objective is to demonstrate both to government and to other donors that projects in slums can be successful, both socially and economically. WaterAid has financed the construction of the area’s water network. It is training local people to manage and maintain the system, and to raise the money needed to keep it operational. Encouraging the community to invest in its own infrastructure is an important part of the philosophy of the project. According to Idrissa Doucoure, WaterAid’s West Africa Regional Manager, ‘We are now putting our energy into education programmes and empowering the communities to continue their own development into the future. This will allow WaterAid to move on and help others.’ Already significant improvements in the general health of the community have occurred. The general view is that it takes a generation for health and sanitation to be properly embedded into people’s daily life.

  108. 108. APPROPRIATE TECHNOLOGY Some aid has been criticised as being too high-tech for LEDCs. The local people lack the expertise to maintain the project and have difficulty sustaining it. Spare parts are expensive or not available in the LEDCs. Appropriate technology projects are low-tech, cheaper, use local materials and there is less to go wrong. They leave local people in control and there is less bureaucracy. Appropriate technology schemes often make use of the abundant local labour supply; products are cheap and local people can afford them. Think about the example I gave you about giving a state of the art John Dear tractor that runs on diesel and is all computerised. If it breaks down the local people probably can’t read the manual, don’t know how to fix the electrical system, let alone the computers and have no access to diesel. If they were given a simple low-tech mechanical tractor that runs on petrol, then they can fix it if it breaks down. Think of the Water Aid video and how they used easily found parts like the bicycle wheel for the water pump and how local people (including the women) built it. Other examples of appropriate technology projects include;  Installing simple bamboo water pumps in villages  Providing bicycles for farmers to get goods to markets  Using local streams to generate small amounts of hydro-electricity  Collecting rainwater in large clay pots  Using cement and chicken wire to reinforce walls and roofs Sometimes these projects need help to get started. Help can be provided by charities (NGOs Non-Government Organisations) and may include some initial advice and start-up capital. 108
  109. 109. DEVELOPMENT WORKSHEET PUPIL’S BOOK PAGE 44 Why cancel debt? Name ________________________________________________________________________________ 2.25 © JOHN MURRAY earthworks 3 teacher’s resource book 87 Many people have called for the debts of the heavily indebted poor countries (HIPCs) to be cancelled. But there are lots of questions about whether this could work. Your task 1 Before you read this sheet, write down in your workbook any questions that you would like to ask about cancelling debt. Now read the questions on this sheet. How many of your questions are the same questions as those on this sheet? 2 Read the answers to the questions on this sheet. To obtain answers to your other questions you could contact Jubilee 2000, an organisation that campaigns for debt cancellation, at: http://www.jubilee2000uk.org Use the information to help you to prepare the arguments in favour of cancelling Zambia’s debt for the assignment on page 44 of the Pupil’s Book. FIVE QUESTIONS ABOUT DEBT How much would it cost to cancel all the poor countries’ debt? Nearly all the HIPCs are in sub-Saharan Africa (the part of Africa which is south of the Sahara). Their total debt amounts to $135 billion. This sounds a huge amount, but is actually only about 10 per cent of the UK’s annual GNP – roughly the amount we spend on defence each year. In fact, many banks have already written off the debt from these countries because they never expect to get it back. In this case, cancelling debt would not really cost anything. If the debt was cancelled wouldn’t it just encourage governments to borrow more money? It is up to banks to decide whether they lend money or not. They have to assess if a country is capable of repaying a loan, in the same way that they would with an individual borrower. In the past, people assumed that governments couldn’t go bankrupt, so too much money was loaned. After this experience banks are unlikely to make the same mistakes again. How will cancelling debt help to solve the problems in poor countries? If poor countries did not have to use so much of their money to repay debt, they would be able to spend more money on basic services like health and education. It would also leave more money free to invest and allow people to earn better wages. This would create more demand for goods and help poor countries to get their economies working. How do we know that cancelling debt won’t benefit corrupt governments? It is not governments that suffer the consequences of debt, but ordinary people living in the countries. In many cases, these people had no choice of government because the government was not democratically elected (people were not allowed to vote). If debts are cancelled it would have to be clear that the main purpose is to help the country to develop. Future loans should be carefully monitored to ensure that money reaches the people it is meant to help. How would cancelling debt benefit us? MEDCs would also benefit from cancelling debt to poor countries. Many world problems are linked to debt. Destruction of natural environments (like rainforest) and drug production are often the result of poor countries’ desperation to earn money. Conflict, war and mass migration often begin as a result of poverty in one country, but spread to other parts of the world. If poorer countries were free from debt they would also be able to trade more. This would benefit all countries. Earthworks unit 2 05/05/2000 10:21 am Page 87 109

Put a cross in the boxes beside the rules that each project has broken. 3 Which of the two projects do you think would be most successful? Give reasons for your answer. Rules for aid Project A Project B 1. It should cause little damage to the environment. 2. It should allow people to continue their traditional way of life. 3. It should help the poorest people who are in most need. 4. It should be cheap and easy to run. 5. It should be controlled by local people. 6. It should help people to use their knowledge and skills. Project A This is a health education project in Bangladesh. It employs local doctors and nurses. They travel around villages in this part of rural Bangladesh giving health education, mainly to women. They teach about contraception to help people to control the size of their families and about diet to improve standards of nutrition. This area is many kilometres from the nearest hospital, but by providing better health education they hope that people will be able to look after their own health better. Project B This is the Aswan Dam in Egypt. It was built in the 1960s to control flooding on the River Nile and to provide the country with electricity. The dam was built by Russian engineers with local labour. Behind the dam the valley was flooded and Lake Nasser was formed. Thousands of people lost their land and their homes. The dam has helped farmers to produce crops throughout the year, and reduced the danger of flooding. Earthworks unit 2 05/05/2000 10:21 am Page 72 110

  115. 115. DEVELOPMENT WORKSHEET PUPIL’S BOOK PAGE 41 What is fair trade? Name ________________________________________________________________________________ 2.21 © JOHN MURRAY earthworks 3 teacher’s resource book 83 Many of the foods that we consume every day (such as bananas, sugar, coffee and tea) are grown in less economically developed countries. However, many of these foods are produced and traded in such a way that little of the price that we pay at the supermarket reaches the people who actually grow them. Part of the problem is the way that production is controlled. Poor farmers in the LEDCs are often locked into a cycle of debt and poverty. Many are forced to work on plantations for low wages. Small farmers who are lucky enough to own their own land are often isolated from the market and are forced to sell their product at low prices. Profits go to the companies who control the land, machinery and access to the markets of MEDCs. We live in a world where conflict, environmental destruction and the problems of poverty in one place can affect people on the other side of the globe. As consumers, our purchasing choices can have a global impact. During the 1990s, the environmental movement transformed the way that people shop. Because of pressures from concerned consumers, we now see a multitude of ‘environmentally friendly’ products on supermarket shelves. More recently, there has also been a movement for ‘people-friendly’ products – fair trade products that ensure that producers receive a fair deal. Fair trade products aim to: • Pay a fair price to farmers. This includes a guaranteed minimum price to ensure the farmer a living wage when the market price is too low to maintain living standards. • Buy directly from farmers. This ensures that the benefits of trade go directly to farmers and their communities. • Provide advance loans to farmers to improve their farms. Traditionally, such loans were unavailable to farmers, or only at interest rates that they could not afford. • Encourage environmentally sustainable farming methods. Sustainable farming helps to build a long-term future for farmers while protecting their communities, the environment and consumers from dangerous chemicals. Adapted from an article by Equal Exchange, a worker-owned fair-trade organisation based in the USA Your task 1 Read the information on this sheet before you do the homework on page 41 of the Pupil’s Book. 2 Look out for examples of fair trade products at your local supermarket. You could use some of these products to show people when you carry out your interviews. Earthworks unit 2 05/05/2000 10:21 am Page 83 115
