Specific Purpose: The purpose of this speech is to provide a persuasive speech on the issue of water pollution and inaccessibility to clean water in third world countries and offer some plausible solutions. The three solutions are filtration systems, chlorination, and collection grids.
As a social institution, gender is a process of creating distinguishable social statuses for the assignment of rights and responsibilities. As part of a stratification system that ranks these statuses unequally, gender is a major building block in the social structures built on these unequal statuses. As a
Thanks to the United Nations general assembly recognizing the need for clean water in Resolution 64/292, the states and international organizations have been called on to provide funding and resources to help developing countries provide safe, clean, affordable, and accessible water to all. This is a step in the right direction, seeing as women and children in some countries have to walk more than 30 minutes to collect water- if there is any water to collect at all.
Drinking Water: Human Right or Commodity? Water, like food, is a necessity for human life that is used for many purposes such as agricultural, industrial, and domestic systems. While water is a common element around the world not all of it is clean and able to be consumed or used by humans. With only a percentage of the world’s water being clean and the use of water increasing, the availability of water around the world has become a common issue in the developing and even the developed world. This may be a smaller problem in areas close to clean water sources compared to areas far from a clean water source but, the availability of water is not strictly based on location, it also depends on the specific political and social needs and issues of the area as well. These all become issues that must be accounted for when deciphering whether water is a basic human right or a commodity and what action must be taken to aid the developing water systems in community’s that lack them.
The most important benefit of water changed in Uganda is through Dr. Christopher Opio’s actions. First of all, global citizenship is based on the population, it combines food, water and electric which are the three things
Two out of every five people living in Sub-Saharan Africa lack safe water. A baby there is 500 times more likely to die from water-related illness than one from the United States. This is a serious ongoing issue that requires the rest of the world to take action. Water spreads diseases easily if the necessary precautions are not taken. Many developing African countries don’t have sewage treatment, or the people don’t have methods to filter and disinfect. Once a person is sick either there is no way to cure them, or medical care is too expensive, so they are left untreated with a high risk of death. Although many believe that the fight for sanitary water in Africa is insurmountable, people in these developing countries can overcome their challenge to access clean water and avoid water-borne diseases through proper sewage treatment facilities, universal water filtration and medical care.
According to the United Nations, it says that Sub-Saharan Africa loses up to forty billion hours per year collecting water; which is very valuable time because most of the day is consumed by basic needs and no time for anything else but if a solution was done, so people wouldn’t have to lose three hours of their day gathering water it would be better. So when the water solution is taken into consideration, children can go back to school instead of getting water borne diseases and parents could have more time to take care of their families. The World Health Organization has shown that, “for every one dollar invested in water and sanitation, there is an economic return of between three to four dollars”.
Uganda. Without the access to safe water, Uganda’s many farmers struggle to grow crops or earn a
Gender Inequality is when one is perceived or treated differently because of their identified gender. Gender identity is combination of our biological characteristics and social factors. Biological characteristics that symbolize a men is his masculinity, this causes people to think that men are stronger than women and this leads the society to perceive women as being physically weak. The difference in perception and treatment for comparable work is what serves as the basics for gender inequality. Gender Inequality is all around us such as in sports, politics, and the workforce; all members of society have felt the presence of gender inequality in one way or another.
Gender is the socially- constructed role and explanation of relationships between men and women. (Sport & Dev) In my opinion, I define Gender inequality as the unfair treatment amid both sexes. According to Sage Knowledge, "Gender inequality is allowing individuals of different opportunities due to perceived differences based solely on issues of gender."
Water is becoming a precious commodity around the world. “Throughout to world, water is recognized as the most fundamental and indispensable of all natural resources and it is clear that neither social and economic development, nor environmental diversity, can be sustained without water” (Ashton 1). Water is
What is equality? What is gender? And what is gender equality? Gender equality is a view that men and women should have equal rights or opportunities and not be favored against based on their gender. However, gender has played an important part in the society since the beginning of time. If we look back throughout history, society has placed a serious expectation of what women and men should be like. The debate of gender equality in the society has always been a controversial and divisive topic. Some believe that gender equality is possible, while some likely disagree with it because they think that men are still superior to women no matter what. One of the many things the society can do to combat the belief that men are superior to women is providing higher education for men and women. Education would lead to opportunities, opportunities lead to gender equality, and gender equality leads to a productive society.
In places, like sub-Saharan Africa, time lost gathering water and suffering from water-borne diseases is limiting people's true potential. Also, causing them to miss important economic and educational opportunities open to men and boys; while people merely try to survive. But it doesn't have to be like this. The problem of water scarcity is a rising one. As more people put ever-increasing requests on limited supplies, the cost and effort to build or even maintain entry to water will increase. “The pertinence of ethics to water utilization and management is clear in a general sense. It is important for everyone involved in water resource management and in public health to have a well-reasoned understanding of the moral values and obligations
The purpose of this research paper is to discuss the water crisis in the region of Africa and how water can cause many other problems such as inadequate sanitation, poverty and diseases for the population. People living in third world countries are suffering from the water crisis that has become a major problem for the United Nations, World Health Organization, United Nations Children’s Fund, Millennium Development Goals and many of the other organizations. For some of these organizations have been successful in providing a bit more water through the years it’s still a working process. Water is essential for life, it’s not just for the body’s physical need; yet millions of people do not have access to clean water. The lack of accessible of fresh water contributes too many diseases such as HIV, AIDS, waterborne diseases, causing the death of millions of women and children annually in the region. This is making it harder for the communities to develop a safer home for their families and to improve the conditions of the country. This research paper will examine the problems, solutions and causes. How it all comes together, to contribute to this water crisis and to weather there is a solutions set by the United Nations, studies that have been conducted and other organizations, which can maybe work for the years to come. In addition, the same water problems are going to be discussed with regard to Africa for statics, examples and quotes done by the organizations in the past and
