War, Displacement, Famine: Man-Made Disasters
Look up the top ten ongoing humanitarian crises around the world. Select one and write your discussion post on that crisis.
One of the major ongoing international crises is the humanitarian crisis in Yemen that has been fueled by war, political, economic, and other social upheaval in the region. The focus of the assignment is to bring attention to an ongoing crisis that appears to get little attention in the west but is considered one of the worst humanitarian crisis in our time. We are concerned about the humanitarian issues as it relates to the global health related issues. Read up on current news reports on what is happening in the crisis you selected. For example if you selected the Yemen situation you would:
- Discuss in what ways this complex humanitarian crisis is both a local and an international event and your views on how various nations have responded.
- Look for a publicly available photo that depicts this man-made disaster. Share the photo and give appropriate credit.
- Briefly discuss what you think are the most urgent needs of the residents and citizens of nation
- Do you think adequate attention is being paid to this crisis? Why or why not?
- Make an original post (290) that includes the photo, your commentary on the photo, and that addresses the above questions at least 2 scholarly references that includes the citation for the photo.
