La Grande Albanie, l'essence d'une nation (Géographies en mouvement)

La Grande Albanie, l'essence d'une nation (Géographies en mouvement) | maps&graphics | Scoop.it

Les évènements survenus sur le stade du Partizan de Belgrade lors du match de football Serbie-Albanie nous renvoient aux conflits gelés issus du partage territorial des Balkans. L’idée d’une «Grande Albanie» prend sa source au XIX° siècle; elle se fonde sur la répartition des peuples dans une Turquie d’Europe qui disparaîtra quasi totalement en 1912. La Grèce, la Serbie, le Monténégro furent les premiers à acquérir leur indépendance, sur un territoire restreint qui n’englobait ni tous les locuteurs de la même langue ni tous les adeptes du même sentiment national. Dans chaque Etat, on dessine alors une carte aux frontières rêvées, correspondant aux contours idéaux de la nation. Naturellement, ces territoires se recoupent et se chevauchent: les ambitions territoriales des uns affrontent celles des autres. L’Albanie est la dernière nation à acquérir son indépendance, à l’issue des guerres balkaniques (1912-1913) si l’on excepte les Etats issus de l’éclatement de la Yougoslavie, entre 1991 et 2008.

Flooding Risk From Climate Change, Country by Country

Flooding Risk From Climate Change, Country by Country | maps&graphics | Scoop.it
A new analysis of sea levels and flood risk around the world offers more evidence that the brunt of climate change will not be borne equally.

 

More than a quarter of Vietnam’s residents live in areas likely to be subject to regular floods by the end of the century.  Globally, eight of the 10 large countries most at risk are in Asia.  These figures are the result of a new analysis of sea levels and flood risk around the world, conducted by Climate Central and based on more detailed sea-level data than has previously been available.  The analysis offers more evidence that the countries emitting the most carbon aren’t necessarily the ones that will bear the brunt of climate change.

Edelin Espino's curator insight, December 15, 2014 5:14 PM

In this article the author discusses the risk of flooding in many different locations of the world. He claims about 2.6 percent of the world's populations. That's a big percentage considering all the people of the planet. 

Danielle Lip's curator insight, April 14, 2015 12:10 PM

Flooding is a major risk when it comes to the world we live in especially for Southeast Asia, some areas will be below sea level which shows how the the climate changes are affecting the flood risks caused by global carbon emission. A study from this article shows that eight our of ten of the largest countries will be at the risk of being flooded and below sea level. The major question is how can this carbon emissions be lower? If the carbon is lower then the sea level will rise and less countries will be at risk, this is mainly focusing on Southeast Asia. Yes, we can not change the climate changes but by keeping the land clean and taking care of the environment the flood risk and sea level change could get out of risk level. 

If the weather continues at the rate it is at then about 2.6 percent of the global population which is approximately 177 million people will be living in a place at risk of regular flooding. Flooding can cause a lot of damage to homes, crops and people physically because flooding is not just a little amount of water.

The largest country at risk with people in danger from the map is China, I liked the way this map worked because you can see from the boxes how many people are going to be affected by the flooding. Instead of just having numbers, giving a better visual for people with the boxes and their sizes.

Lora Tortolani's curator insight, April 20, 2015 9:24 PM

It's like watching the land on Earth change right in front of our eyes.  According to this map, if global carbon emissions stay as they currently are and sea levels can be affected about as much as expected, 2.6 million people of the global population will live in a high risk flood zone; this wipes out 177 million people!
