Sustainable development Sustainable development means development that ensures that the use of resources and the environment today does not restrict their use for future generations. Cambodia - Banking on a Buffalo More than 30 percent of Cambodia's population lives below the poverty line. This percentage is even higher for Cambodians living in rural areas who are mainly subsistence farmers relying on agriculture, fishing and forests to meet their daily needs. While rice is a staple food, but most rural Cambodians cannot grow enough rice to feed their families throughout the year. So to ensure they have enough food for an active and healthy life, Oxfam is making rice and buffalo 'banks'. This is where a poor rice farming family, with no livestock, is given a buffalo to help them work their fields, cart the harvested rice and use for breeding. In exchange for the buffalo, the family pays 12kg of rice to the community rice bank. Once they have their buffalo, the family learns how to care for it and keep it healthy making sure that it receives twice yearly vaccinations, gets the right foods to eat and doesn't work too hard when pregnant. Buffalo calves are a crucial aspect of the program. The first and third offspring from the buffalo are returned to the bank and given to another family to use. The second and fourth offspring are the family's to keep. After the fourth calf,

Form 5B2 02/11/03 Geography Khamal Hodge Geography Midterm Assignment Equatorial Rainforest is the name given to the area in which luxuriant, evergreen, broad-leafed vegetation is dominant. This vegetation grows in profusion 0º to 10º north and south of the Equator and is termed selva. This type of vegetation grows as a result of the daily heavy rainfall (over 2500 mm per year). As equatorial rainforests are located in the equatorial zone the sun is nearly always overhead. This results in high temperatures, usually around 27ºC and speeds up the rate at which the plants can photosynthesise. In equatorial rainforests it is also very humid (80% and above). Examples of equatorial rainforest are the Amazon Basin and the Zaire Basin. Other examples can be found in Indonesia and the East Indies. In the rainforest, many species grow in a relatively small area. There are areas where over 40 species may grow in a hectare. Trees in the rainforest grow in layers. The layers are the Upper Layer (54 m high), the Middle Layer (15 m to 45 m) and the Under Layer (5 m to 15 m). The trees in the Upper Layer form a thick canopy with their leaves, which blocks 95% of the sunlight. This means that the trees and plants in the Middle and Under Layers have to be shade tolerant. These shade
Is East Leake A Town Or A Village?
Introduction and Aims East Leake is a settlement, which is located 4.85 miles North of Loughborough, and 8. 55 miles South of Nottingham. This is clearly shown in the map below: East Leake is only about 10-15 minutes away from Loughborough this means that there is easy access to Loughborough train station. The train station has links to all major stations including London, which would take around 1 hour and 50 minutes to get to. East Leake also has access to the number 1 bus route to Loughborough and Nottingham. In the table below I will show distances from East Leake to all villages used within the survey. Village/ Town Distance from East Leake (Miles) Gotham 3 Costock .3 Wysall 3.4 Barton 3.5 Clifton 9.6 Kegworth 8.1 Loughborough 8.1 West Leake 2.1 Normanton 5 From the question 'Is East Leake a town or a village' I feel that I should be trying to collect and present information to prove whether East Leake is a town or a village. To do this I am going to use information discovered from the field trip; this includes location maps, traffic surveys and a questionnaire. I will also use photos from the field trip and annotate them to show and explain my ideas. On the location map I will indicate high/low order shops this will be one of the most conclusive pieces of evidence to answer if East Leake is a town or a village. Definition of a Village:
Is ecotourism the way forward for countries such as Ecuador?
Is ecotourism the way forward for countries such as Ecuador? Environment - international agreements: Party to: Antarctic-Environmental Protocol, Antarctic Treaty, Biodiversity, Climate Change, Climate Change-Kyoto Protocol, Desertification, Endangered Species, Hazardous Wastes, Ozone Layer Protection, Ship Pollution, Tropical Timber 83, Tropical Timber 94, Wetlands. Introduction Ecuador is situated in western South America. Its neighbouring countries consist of Peru and Columbia and it borders the Pacific Ocean at the Equator. Quito is its capital. Ecuador is an LEDC because of many factors of economical detriment; It remains a lower middle income nation with a gross domestic product of $30.7 billion, or $4,300 per capita. In South America, only Bolivia has a lower per capita GDP. Agriculture (primarily bananas, coffee, and cacao) and fishing are important sectors of the economy, together providing 50% of export earnings. Petroleum, the other major export commodity, produces 40% of export earnings. Being solely made up of primary goods, income is irregular and small. Its import commodities consist of vehicles, medical products, telecommunications equipment and electricity, all of it manufactured goods (excluding electricity) which have substantially more value than its exports. This could lead to the danger of having a trade deficit, increasing its foreign debt.

In Southampton we want to know: * What are the different areas of Southampton like? * How do they differ? * Is it like this in Dorchester? * Are changes happening? * Has it always been this way? Background information: Southampton is a major regional centre on the south coast of the UK; it has a wide range of services. Many people visit Southampton because of its shopping attractions such as West Quay Shopping Centre. Southampton's population is 217 445, it is sited around the confluence of the river Test and Itchen. The city itself is located off the M27 in Hampshire and is the South of England's main dock area for importing and exporting goods. The road and rail network in and around Southampton also allow for easy commuting to other major cities, including the capital, London (known as a commuter belt). Dorchester is a

Using examples you have studied, compare and contrast the impacts of an Earthquake in an MEDC and a LEDC? Earthquakes are a common occurrence around the world, happening along the plate boundaries under the Earth's crust. The Alaskan earthquake occurred on Good Friday, March 27th, 1964, and is an example of a MEDC Earthquake. It was the largest earthquake ever recorded in North America. Sources vary as to the magnitude of this earthquake, in part because a variety of scales are used to measure earthquake. The USGS gives it a 9.2 Mw, where Mw is the moment magnitude. The epicentre was located between Valdez and Anchorage, near Prince William Sound. The earthquake occurred on a thrust fault. This fault was a subduction zone, where the Pacific plate plunges underneath the North American plate. The first slip occurred at a depth of 30 km. the Earthquake was so powerful that some of the most potent seismic waves where created. The sudden uplift of the Alaskan seafloor caused a tsunami, which was responsible for 122 of the 131 deaths. The tsunami reached the Hawaiian Islands. The tsunami also struck Crescent City, California, killing five people. The earthquake also caused ground liquefaction, whereby the soil and sand temporarily turned from a solid to a liquid state. Rockslides and avalanches occurred as a result of the liquefaction. Some of the landslides occurred in
Tourism in Hong Kong
Jack Chen Chinese International School IGCSE Geography Course Work Tourism in Hong Kong Introduction: Tourism is a vast worldwide industry, which includes the transportation, the lodging, feeding and entertainment of the tourist. Tourism is one of Hong Kong's most important service activities and it is the third largest source of foreign exchange earnings. In the early 1990s, nearly 9 million tourists visited Hong Kong each year, spending more than $7 billion annually. Most visitors came from Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, and other locations in East and Southeast Asia. Many European and North American tourists also visited. According to United Nations' definition, a tourist is a temporary visitor staying at least 24 hours but less than one year in a country other than his own place of residence when the purpose of his journey is either (a) leisure, recreation, holiday, health, or study. (b) Business, family, convention congress, military personnel, diplomats, resident students and those who accept employment in a foreign country are not considered tourist. The main purpose of this coursework is to find out what are the characteristics of tourists arriving in Hong Kong. This coursework will be focus on the following three stresses: . Can a pattern be identified in terms of the length of stay with tourists who visit Hong Kong? 2. What motivates people to visit
What are the local and global consequences of deforestation?
What are the local and global consequences of deforestation? Intro Deforestation is the large-scale removal of forest, prior to its replacement by other land uses. It is proceeding at about 17 million hectares each year between 1980 and 1990, annual deforestation rates were 1.2 per cent in Asia and the Pacific, 0.8 per cent in Latin America, and 0.7 per cent in Africa. Forest area is generally stable in Europe and North America, although the rate of transition from old-growth forest to other forms in North America is controversially high. Global Consequences Deforestation may be distinguished from forest degradation, which is a reduction in forest quality. The main worry for environmentalists and the world's population is that many species are being lost as their habitats are being destroyed. In a rainforest, certain small areas are individual, specific habitats themselves. This means that if one small area of the rainforest is cleared, it could mean that a whole series of species are wiped out The two are linked, and result in several problems. A minimum of 4000 species are being wiped out each year due to deforestation. It is thought that the figure could be as many as 50000 per year. At the rate at which trees are being cut down, the world's rainforests may disappear by the year 2030. They reduce bio-diversity (the range of habitat, species, and genetic types),
