I’m working on a Sociology exercise and need support.
Assignment 3b: Analysis on the Threats Defense Argument
Due in Week 10
The information you provided in your PowerPoint presentation on Threats to the Global Environment has led to productive debates at the United Nations General Assembly! Hence, they are now asking you to create an additional analysis report to respond to the issues raised in these debates.
Your fourth project as a consultant for the United Nations is to develop a report that addresses the issues raised by some of the member states of the United Nations.
Step I. Consider the Issues
In Assignment 3a, you were asked to create a PowerPoint identifying the four most critical threats out of eight threats provided in the table below.
|Energy sources||Civil war|
|Globalization||Poor health of entire populations|
|Lack of educational opportunities||Cultural taboos|
|Inappropriate uses of technology||Climate change|
There are four remaining threats that you did not discuss in your PowerPoint. This assignment will focus on those four. Here are the specific tasks you will complete:
Step II. Prepare Your Report
The UN has given you the following guidelines.
Briefly introduce the topic of the analysis (about 100-150 words).
Section I. Threat 1
Section II. Threat 2
The specific course learning outcome associated with this assignment is as follows:
Grading for this assignment will be based on answer quality, logic/organization of the paper, and language and writing skills, using the following rubric:
