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.

Earthquakes make the development of schools, government building and hospitals into rubble. These buildings are key to the countries development, which they cannot afford to loose. Furthermore, these natural disasters significantly increase the death rate. This is because; there will be severe shortages of necessities like water and food. Many lives will be affected and no alternative methods for safe water supplies can be made, hence diseases such as typhoid increase within the population; creating more chaos as hospitals are expensive and are inadequate in coping with such situations.
