aii) Explain why there is a need for world development. Some parts of the world are in need of improvement, and development. The world has been divided according to their economical advancement. There are 'First World' countries such as USA, Western Europe and Australia, which are known as MDC's are they have an economic advantage. Then there are 'Second World Countries', which are regarded to be poorer than the west, and but richer than the rest of the world - generally communist countries such as USSR.
