Geographical Association - Ebola crisis 2014

Geographical Association - Ebola crisis 2014 | GTAV AC:G Y10 - Geographies of human wellbeing | Scoop.it

Ebola is an infectious disease, which has become a pandemic crisis causing around 5000 deaths in 2014, with a 50% mortality rate among those who have contracted the virus.

The outbreak in West Africa was first reported in March 2014, and every natural case of Ebola has been in Sub-Saharan Africa with Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea at the epicentre of the crisis.

This key stage 3-5 resource, produced by GA Consultant and Secondary Phase Committee Co-Chair Stephen Schwab, includes classroom activities and teaching ideas, and explores geographical facts, concepts and the impact the virus has had on the communities affected.

Adventures in Population Growth

Adventures in Population Growth | GTAV AC:G Y10 - Geographies of human wellbeing | Scoop.it

"The International Database at the US Census Bureau [provides] population estimates broken down by country, age and year for essentially every country. [With this data we can track] shifts in population makeup over time. I’ve created a few interesting graphs to show the expected shifts over the next 35 years, including the dependency ratio."

Kristen Trammell's curator insight, March 23, 12:52 PM

I. International Database for the US Census Bureau created graphs representing population estimates broken down by country, age, and year. These graphs show the population shifts over 35 years of major countries. 

 

II. Developed nations show a column shape with a pointed top. Developed nations have equal amounts of males and females, and have a higher population of 30-50 year olds. With a high number of middle aged people and a low number of elderly people, developed nations remain stable due to a stable birth rate and death rate. Developing countries have a pyramid shaped population, with many young people and few 50-100 years olds. This leads to a weak economy as their is high unemployment. Developing countries also have overall higher populations, which leads to poverty as their is a lack of resources. 

Emily Coats's curator insight, March 24, 11:31 AM

UNIT 2 POPULATION
This article depicts various population pyramids in developing, as well as developed countries. These pyramids show trends from the past, as well as predictions for the future (2050). With population pyramids, it is easy to understand how populations shift, as well as observe different trends on populations. I really like studying the information given to us by population pyramids, so this article is very important to me. This whole thing relates to historical trends and projections for the future. 

Michael Amberg's curator insight, May 26, 11:30 PM

This is an example on the population growth and development from the recent years of technological innovation.

One of the most interesting aspects of WomanStats interdisciplinary research is the creation of world maps that represent the various aspects of the situation of women worldwide. As noted in the research section of this website, we have developed several indices of women's status, which then may be mapped using GIS and other techniques of political geography.

In China, one-child policy compounds loss of child for parents

In China, one-child policy compounds loss of child for parents | GTAV AC:G Y10 - Geographies of human wellbeing | Scoop.it
One-child policy leaves some parents childless, hopeless and facing financial ruin in old age.

Population programs can have have diverse unintended consequences.  Many couples in China who have lost a child not only face the heartache of loss, but have also lost their economic future since that one child was supposed to support them in their old age.  Some elderly parents have a child, but one that does not financially support them as the cultural norms of the past would have required of the children.  These 'orphan grandparents' are casualties in the changing cultural, demographic, and economic patterns in China.
