The purpose of this assignment is to familiarize you with a developing country and a major issue or problem confronting the country. During the semester, we have covered various topics, each concerned with an integral aspect of the modern urban experience. Taken together these topics constitute the framework through which we can assess the effectiveness of a region in providing all components of the human hierarchy of needs. A successful urban area is one which works for all or most of its denizens. Successful areas are characterized by economic prosperity, egalitarianism, rule of law, opportunity and freedom from coercion. This assignment is primarily analytic, though a portion of it will be descriptive. You will choose a developing country and describe it in terms of its demographic, political, economic, housing, infrastructure (i.e. water, energy, food) and public health characteristics. You may include geography, history, culture or other characteristics to provide a more thorough description of your country, but dont spend too much time on these ancillary details. For the analytic portion, you will focus on a specific problem in one of the areas described in the previous section. In addition to describing the problem, its causes and effects, you will discuss a policy solution to the problem. Irrespective of whether you have provided your own solution, or one from the literature, you must make a compelling argument for its effectiveness in addressing the problem or issue you have chosen. When picking a problem, please be as narrow or specific as possible. For example, discuss a specific aspect of economic development such as the dearth of local manufacturing; or, within the context of public health, discuss infant mortality due to malnutrition instead of overall high death rates. Your final paper will be a maximum of 6 pages long (1.5 spacing). You will use 1 margins and 12 pt font, preferably Times New Roman or Calibri. You can include figures, charts, tables and other non-narrative elements to make your case. Also citations should be provided in the text with a reference list at the end of the paper (use APA or MLA format for citations). (30 40 points) Major descriptive indicators or characteristics are included. The description is not only cross sectional but also historical (in other words, some sense of the history of your topic should be included). Redundant information is at a minimum. Figures, charts, tables, etc are not used as filler devices but complement the narrative section (and vice-versa). The description does not contain any glaring holes or obvious omissi Analytic (60 points) (50-60) A specific problem is discussed. The description of the problem, including its history and significance, is comprehensive, compelling and accurate. The indicators used to describe the problem are appropriate (i.e. the relevant metrics are used). Tables, charts, figures, etc. are used to supplement the analysis and not as space fillers. Redundancies are minimal. The policy prescriptions (or proscriptions) are logically connected to the problem and its causes (i.e. your solutions make sense). THIS ESSAY WILL BE SUBMITTED TO TURNITIN ALL DIRECT QUOTES NEED TO BE CITED AND ALL REFERENCES NEED TO BE IN MLA OR APA FORMAT.
