Geography Population - Agenda 21
  1. What is Agenda 21?
    1. Agenda 21 is a United Nations (UN) sustainable development programme agreed at the various Earth summits. Governments are obliged o formulate national plans or straggles for sustainable development.
      1. What does Agenda 21 specify?
        1. Agenda 21 states that it is people, not governments, who engage in development, and therefore sustainable development is essentially a local activity.
          1. Everyone, however poor or rich, has some ability to change what they do in a small or big way
      2. Implementation of Agenda 21
        1. Local authorities in many parts of the world are being to translate Agenda 21 into local action.
          1. Suggested strategies by local authorities: (All of these strategies are applied to the local area)
            1. Effectively monitoring air and water quality
              1. Promoting energy efficiency
                1. Establishing an effective recycling system
                  1. Introducing efficient forms of public transport
                    1. Placing population management at the heat of any activity
                  2. Just as global sustainability cannot exist without national sustainability polices, national Agenda 21 is incomplete without a local Agenda 21
                    1. Authorities in developing countries, such as most sub-Saharan African countries, can introduce local population management by:
                      1. Training community nurses to be responsible for all elements of care
                        1. Prenatal
                          1. Midwifery
                            1. Childcare
                              1. Inoculations and care for elderly people
                                1. Educating adolescents about AIDS and HIV
                                2. Increasing levels of female literacy, thereby raising aspirations and improving levels of prevention and care within families
                                3. Authorities in developed countries can:
                                  1. Trying sufficient medical care workers to look after the rising numbers of elderly people, especially those too old or infirm to look after themselves.
                                    1. This would reduce the need to recruit medical workers from oversea.
                                    2. Recognise that birth rates are falling and consider the issue that may arise from having smaller numbers of children and eventually a reduced workforce
