Global Development; The List of Things You Need to Know

We love to be your travel partner for all types of humanitarian organizations, whether they’re faith-based, volunteer or non-governmental humanitarian organizations. Because you try to solve the world’s biggest problems every single day. Some of these problems affect major global development issues such as poverty, climate change, and human rights.

Major global development issues are changing

In 2017 we wrote that we hope to see a world in which every person can live a happy and a fulfilling life. A world where organizations and countries strive to prevent environmental calamities, economic differences, violation of human rights, sub-par education and healthcare challenges to the best of their abilities. There is still much work to be done, especially in the field of poverty, environmental issues and human rights.

Poverty

It is the inability to meet the basic primary needs of life. Such as drinking water, housing and education. Causes of these major issues are the lack of monetary resources coupled with challenges of hunger and shortage of proper clothing. Great strides are being made in this field of humanitarian work. World Bank reported that between 1990 and 2015, the percentage of the world’s population living in extreme poverty fell from 37.1% to 9.6%. This was the first time it attained levels below 10%. Quite a considerable decline. But, we’re not done yet. Extreme poverty still is a major global challenge that many NGOs strive to put at bay daily.

Environmental

The list of environmental issues is substantial. Challenges of pollution, global warming, natural resource depletion and waste disposal already affect the daily lives of billions of people and pose a significant threat to our entire planet. The effect is gradual, while the majority might not even notice it. Climate change could result in global, large-scale changes in natural and social systems. Examples include the possibility for the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation to slow- or shutdown. This would alter the weather in Europe and North America considerably, and the ocean will suffer from acidification due to increased concentrations of carbon dioxide.

Human rights

Many faith-based, volunteer and aid worker organizations are working to help people in need: people whose human rights are being violated every day. While arranging travel, we see a global commitment to advancing human rights. A development we very much support, since many children attend classes hungry which significantly affects their ability to learn, and the inequality between men and women proves to be a problem hard to solve.
