Question Description

The United Nations has hired you to be a consultant on global issues. One of the challenges is assessing the impact of population growth. There is no question that the world population will grow dramatically in the next decade throughout many countries of the world. The members of the UN are working to understand the impact that population growth has on society, specifically in developing countries. Your first project with the UN is to develop a whitepaper on three issues related to the population growth faced by one of these countries. Read the Case Study and provide an assessment based on the questions below

Case Assessment

The world’s population is expanding at such a rate that some natural resources are being stripped from the environment. This case study deals with how global institutions are working to prevent the loss of these resources. It also deals with, in effect, the consequences of not having access to these resources.

As the first section of your whitepaper for the UN, research the impact of population growth on society. Write a minimum of four pages assessing the impact, citing at least five credible sources in your research. As you compose the whitepaper, review the United Nations list of developing countries (available on the United Nations website). Select one country from the UN developing countries list to use as an example throughout your assessment. Please include:

  • A cover page with your name, title of course, date, and the name of your instructor
  • A one-half page introduction
  • A middle section that is numbered and divided into three one-page sections. Each of these sections should answer one of the following questions:
  1. What are greenhouse gases? How do they contribute to global warming?
  2. What kinds of economic, security, political, and other challenges do these emissions pose to the people of the developing world, and who are the biggest offenders?
  3. Is there any way to control the growth of population on a global level?
  • A one-half page conclusion
  • Cite at least five credible sources, excluding Wikipedia, dictionaries and encyclopedias for your assessment.
  • For a brief list of resources for this assignment, please see the end of the course guide.

This course requires use of new Strayer Writing Standards (SWS). The format is different than other Strayer University courses. Please take a moment to review the SWS documentation for details. (Note: You will be prompted to enter your Blackboard login credentials to view these standards.)

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Evaluate the impacts of population growth and its negative impacts on global societies while considering multiple perspectives.

Running head: GLOBAL WARMING


Global Warming

The world climate has been changing steadily for the last few years mainly due to
the growth of population. Human activities such as the construction of industries have
resulted in the production of greenhouse gases thus increasing the carbon footprint in the
air. The developing nations as grouped by the United Nations such as China are
responsible for the emission of greenhouse gases due to the production activities. China is
working to attain a competitive advantage in the world economies thus increasing the
amount of carbon they produce. To make it worse, China does not recognize the
existence of climate change and global warming, thus making it hard to convince the
nation on safer production methods. The population of China is a bit large, and the
government has called the families to have at most two children. The reduction of the
population will help reduce the amount of carbon footprint thus controlling the global
warming menace.
Greenhouse Gases
The greenhouse gases are those responsible for trapping heat in the atmosphere.
These gases are produced during human activities. Carbon dioxide finds its way into the
atmosphere due to burning activities such as fossil fuels which are coal, oil and natural
gases, mostly used for energy in production industries. The burning of wood and tree
products and solid wastes also results in releasing carbon into the atmosphere. Various
chemical reactions such as the manufacture of cement results in the release of carbon
dioxide. Through the biological carbon cycle, ...
