  3. My 3 questions!!! 1:wich are the poorest countries and why 2:millennium development goals 3:what are the problems in Africa

  4. Why did I pick them ?? I choose them 3 questions because I thought they would be good to discuses and they were 3 questions I was interested in finding out about . Also it is not just targeted about one country it is about the world as well and it night give people an idea of what countries in the world are the poorest

  5. Which are the poorest counties And why ?? Afghanistan Angola Bangladesh BurkinaFaso Central African Republic DemocraticRepublicof Congo Ethiopia Gambia Liberia Madagascar Chad Sierra Leone Zambia Nepal Malawi

  6. Why are the countries so poor One of the main reasons countries are so poor is because of 3rd world debt .this happens when a countries lend money to another country .so say a country lent 1000 million pound to another country to pay for wars going on and they say you can pay us back over 40 years plus 5% a year . So once the 40 years are up ands they have payed back all the money plus the 5 % they would have payed double than what they borrowed !!

  7. Millennium development goals Millennium Development Goals The eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were agreed at the United Nations Millennium Summit in September 2000. Nearly 190 countries have subsequently signed up to them. The eight Millennium Development Goals are: • Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger • Achieve universal primary education • Promote gender equality and empower women • Reduce child mortality • Improve maternal health • Combat HIV and AIDS, malaria and other diseases • Ensure environmental sustainability • Develop a global partnership for development • And here is just a few in detail of what they mean and are going to try to do

  8. Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger • It's hard to imagine, but more than a billion people in the developing world live on less than a dollar a day. Without enough money to buy food, millions go hungry every day, That’s why we’re committed to the twin targets of, by 2015, halving the proportion of people whose income is less than a dollar a day and halving the proportion of people suffering from hunger. • The good news is that extreme poverty levels fell between 1990 and 2000, although progress was uneven. If this trend continues, 370 million more people will have been lifted out of extreme poverty, with global poverty rates falling to 13% by 2015. The bad news is that while some progress is being made in southern Africa, it is stubbornly slow, with an estimated 360 million people set to be living in extreme poverty in 2015. • we spent an estimated £5 billion on official development assistance in 2007. Our priorities include combating the spread of HIV and AIDS in Africa, promoting poverty reduction programmers, reducing debt, boosting access to markets, and supporting peace processes. To help boost the effectiveness of existing aid, we are also encouraging donors to work together more.

  9. Achieve universal primary Education aged children not enrolled in school - 55% (41 million) of whom are girls This lack of basic education deprives young people of choices and opportunities, and makes it harder for countries in the developing world to tackle poverty and disease. Sub-Saharan Africa accounts for more out-of-school children than any other region: 35 million, including 19 million girls. Meanwhile, across South and West Asia 18 million primary-aged children are out of school, 10 million of them girls But progress is being made. Global enrolment in primary education increased by over 41 million between 1999 and 2005. There are now 95 girls enrolled in school for every 100 boys, compared with 92 girls for every 100 boys in 1999. The number of primary-aged children not enrolled in school fell by over 28 million between 1999 and 2006. DFID is spending £8.5 billion pounds over 10 years to ensure that, by 2015, children everywhere, boys and girls alike, will be able to complete at least five years of quality education. Most of the money will be going to Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. We are working closely with the governments of poor countries to improve both the access to and the quality of schooling. Although it's a tough target, the achievements of some countries do give grounds for optimism. In countries like Uganda and Malawi, for example, the number of children enrolling in primary school has doubled in five years and is now over 90%.

  10. What are the problems in Africa ?? Another problem in Africa is the gross miss-management of the Government policies this means that the government are buying guns and weapons and not food and medical supplies and a result of that is people and children are dying In there thousands of malnutrition . A typical example of this would be the situation currently on going in zimbarbway South Africa is a developing country on the world's poorest continent, Africa. South Africa is faced with many challenges that are being dealt with by the government and foreign aid. Some of these include: Unemployment Pollution Crime HIV and AIDS Skills shortage Corruption Poor rural infrastructure Power (electricity) shortage TB
