Increasing urbanization creates challenges and opportunities for ... | ESART | Scoop.it

The increase of urbanization is creating problems all over the world. Children from disadvantged backgrounds who live in urban areas are now facing more challenges and are having less oppurtunities to succed. Thеѕе challenges include low levels οf birth registration, inadequate access tο sanitation аnԁ safe water services, education аnԁ health services and in my opinion this doesn't really seem to be fair to these kids. I believe that all people deserve a chance at succes no matter where they live, who theyre parents are, or who they grew up with, everyone deserves to be treated equally but this increase amount of urbanization is limiting childrens chances. Urbanization relates to human population.

If this policy was active around the world then many families would be better off and be able to take care of their child instead of focusing on many children and not having the funds to support them. This article connects to chapter nine about human population.

Infant mortality rate triples (in Zimbabwe)

Infant mortality rate triples (in Zimbabwe) | ESART | Scoop.it

The infant mortality rate has almost tripled in Zimbabwe due to the unavaliabilty of maternity equipment and also the shortage of human resources. Japan recently gave Zimbabwe 9.9 million in order to get them back on their feet and to slow this declining rate. The under five mortality rate has shot up by 22 per cent from the 1990 baseline. But with the money from Japan they believe that this will improve the standards of living in Zimbabwe and put a halt to this increasing rate. Infant mortality rate connects to Chapter 9 which relates to human population.
