2nd year – POPULATION & DEVELOPMENT

1 10 2014

The topic of Population and Development can be among the most difficult to tackle. This is because population issues are related to so many other topics, such as demography, economics, urbanisation, gender, religion, politics, food and nutrition, health and human rights to name just a few.

First of all, let’s test your knowledge.

Population and Development is an area where knowledge is constantly changing. Indeed, the last century has witnessed unprecedented changes in population dynamics, living standards and other indicators of human well-being.

A key resource is the annual State of the World Population Report published by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).

We find ten key patterns and trends you will work with in groups of five.

  • Each student will be assigned two key patterns which will be summarised. Here you’ve got some guidelines.

  • Each student will surf on the net for pics related to his patterns/trends.
  • Each group will design a presentation with the pics and summaries, background music will be taken into account as well.
