Answering Conclusion Questions. For these questions you are asked to make conclusions You basically have to make decisions based on evidence in sources. Answering Conclusion Questions. At credit level you are asked to make 4 conclusions
Use each of these bullet points as headings
The first conclusion is… (1 mark)
Evidence to support this is in Source 2 where it tells us that… (1 mark)
The first conclusion that can be reached is that the G8 have been successful in meeting promise 1 which is to improve health care.
Evidence to support this is in Source 4 where we can see that the percentage of people with HIV in Burundi, Ethiopia, Malawi and Rwanda has reduced between 1996 and 2009. In addition, the infant mortality rate has gone down in all countries and life expectancy has risen.
The second conclusion is that the G8 failed to meet promise 2 which was to double the total ODA given to less developed countries by 2010.
Evidence to support this is in Source 2 where we can see that seven G8 countries failed to double the ODA given to all less developed countries. For example, Canada’s contribution only went up from £2.6 to $5.1 billion, France’s went from $8.5 to $12.9 billion and the USA’s went from $19.7 to $30 billion.
The third conclusion is that the G8 failed to meet promise 4 which was to deliver a $22.6 billion increase in ODA to Sub-Saharan Africa between 2005 and 2010.
Evidence to support this is in Source 3 where we can see that in 2005 the total ODA for Sub-Saharan Africa was $17.6 billion and this rose to $31.3 billion. This is an increase of only $13.7 billion which is nowhere near the G8’s target.
A final conclusion that can be reached is that the UK is the most committed to meeting the UN aid recommendation.
Evidence to support this is in Sources 1 and 2. In Source 1, we are told that the G8 countries have committed themselves to giving 0.7% of GNI as ODA. In Source 2, we can see that the country in 2010 which was closest to this was the UK which contributes 0.56% of its GNI as ODA. Although this is not as much as 0.7% it is closer than any of the other G8 countries.
