Profits are short lived, with little money staying in the community. Large landowners who have benefited are likely to leave town. While some reap financial benefits, the entire community must pay for damages and to clean up a degraded environment. Runoff and erosion at drilling sites may increase sediment and nutrient loads in streams and rivers. This, in turn, can affect habitat quality for plants and animals that live downstream.
Another factor that can affect water supply is urban development and over extraction. An example is the coca cola conflict in India. Since coca cola moved to India and started using aquifers as a water source there has been a noticeable decrease in the supply of water. Water is being over extracted in an unsustainable rate which is causing the level available to drop drastically. However Coca-Cola attempt to combat this by collecting rainwater and
This would, in turn, provide more land for farmers and help to eradicate their poverty issues. The Dam itself was built between Asyut and Abu Simbel, more towards the southern part of Egypt. While the Dam was intended to do nothing but benefit Egypt and its economy, it didn’t come without implications and negative effects. To build the Dam, many houses and residences had to be relocated and many people had to leave their homes. There were also old Egyptian structures that had to be carefully moved to avoid destruction from the new path of the river.
Another physical factor is whether the country has space which stores extra water such as aquifer, as this can be something for a country to use if the main water supply does potentially run out. For example Mexico has a low amount of water stress due to having a large aquifer underground, where as Saudi Arabia has a high water stress level because it has no alternative water supply. Climate change is large physical factor which contributes to the pattern of water stress as it can cause climates to become extreme. For example, in Indonesia climate change has increased the amount of
Another major potential clash is within US Federal Governments – who are under pressure from their own politicians not to change water allocations. Plans to line the canal that carries water to California’s Imperial Valley are a reasonably sensible conservation project, although the seepage would top up groundwater along the border, supply to Mexico would be reduced. Already, 90% of the Colorado River irrigation is used by the US, and many tributaries are drying up which is creating economic
With Pakistan having such a low GDP it ‘s we see a large percentage of their population working in agriculture making crops etc. very important to their lives. Cumbria still lies at a big disadvantage and risk to flooding due to its urbanization, which Pakistan has little of. Due to Cumbria’s large economic advantages many factors are added which can increase flooding such as the large areas of impermeable pavements causing reduced lag time. Other factors can include Gutters and Drains quickly taking water to the rivers.
To begin, it would only seem right to explain the background of Africa itself before going into the methods through which its development was affected by the geography of the region. The continent of African was one that has been said to have rain forests, but that statement has been countered numerous times. In addition, the region had seafaring trade with numerous other civilizations and deserts that both hindered, and benefited certain civilizations. The agricultural aspects and benefits of the region played a role in its geography, making it a key element in the scale of development of the region and impacting it immensely. The Nile River, in particular, was an aspect of agriculture whose impact on African societies would change the way we see it today.
On the positive side the dam is a renewable energy source but environmentally speaking it has done more damage than good. The construction of the TGD has had a huge negative impact on the environment all along the river. The controlled water flow has caused a decrease in water quality and changed the niche of many wild life species. Fish can’t simply swim up and downstream freely anymore which can affect their diet and matting patterns. The water behind the reservoir has destabilized some of the steep hills on the edges of the water causing landslides that can be very dangerous.
These projects used resources that created economic demand, got people working, and brought hydropower - among many other critical things - to places like the Mid-South which largely had no electrical support - having a huge impact on long term growth and development. The New Deal was basically all his programs into one giant program consisting of those large programs. New Deal = A,B,C. A,B,C = New Deal. President Roosevelt soon started government programs to give food and shelter to the needy.
In this paper I will discuss of America. the Yellow River floods, the monsoon rains, and the effect they have on both the Chinese economy and the economy of The United States First, physical features of a nation can have a tremendous effect on that country’s history and culture. One example is the Yellow River floods. The Yellow (Huang He) River is the most important single land form in China. Over one hundred million people live along its banks, trying to make a living off the extremely fertile soil it carries in its current.
