Syria became the largest nation of origin for refugees in 2014, with 3.88 million Syrian refugees now residing in other countries.  Previously Afghanistan was the largest source and neighbouring Pakistan was the world's largest host of refugees. The Syrian conflict has made Turkey the largest host nation of refugees in the world.  War, conflict and persecution continued to displace people across Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Central America and Eastern Europe, the latest figures from 2014 show.

Unit 2 population and migration

This diagram shows the population in relation to the female education. As female education increases the population grows less, therefore stabilizing the population. Once this increases the female population would make their own decisions. As you can see in the diagram the women must get post secondary education to understand what to do to not have as many kids.

 This diagram relates to unit 2 because it shows the gender inequality and the overall makeshift change that'll occur soon in the future if the population tends to grow in comparison to female education. If the education grows a lot, the population will grow less and it is in a negative direct correlation sequence.

this chart confirms one of Ravenstein's "laws of migration"- for every movement of migration, there is a flow of counter migration. when a large group of people move to a country, a group of people in that country may move somewhere else. we learned about migration in unit 3 of APHUG.

Quentin Sylvester's curator insight, March 17, 2015 8:31 PM

This graphic shows the migratory patterns between nations. A common theme it mentions is that poorer peoples tend to migrate to countries that offer them more opportunity, this applies when looking at migratory patterns between Burkina Faso to Ghana, or Bangladesh to India. Overall, this helps to show visually, and explain why humans migrate from their homelands.

this article applies to the APHUG unit in which we learned about population. it starts by stating that Nigeria is expected to have a larger population than the us in 2050. this is because in sub Saharan Africa, many families have more children to help with the economic income. however, with the lack of hygiene, proper health care, and lack of contraceptives due to the lack of secondary education in women, this will lower the child/infant mortality rate and send the death rate skyrocketing, which will drastically affect their population pyramid. this article does not bring good news.

Poverty is a pervasive concern in high fertility countries. The world has made progress in reducing severe poverty, but it's been exceedingly slow in countries where population growth rates remain high. While family planning can reduce demographic vulnerability, developing countries also require other forms of assistance.

Sammie Bryant's curator insight, January 3, 2015 12:02 AM

this article applies to our unit in which we learned that earths population is increasingly climbing, especially in countries such as india and china. this is causing many places to become overpopulated, lowering child/infant mortality rate, and concerning the whole world. this applies to what we learned about population i APHUG. 

Quentin Sylvester's curator insight, March 17, 2015 8:38 PM

This study goes against many common theories that our population will slowly plateau by showing how with current projections and growth, many developing nations simply will not be able to curb their growth in order to see global growth decline, as vital as that is. This provides a new perspective of looking at our future, and if true, signals that it must be dealt with immediately.
