Water extraction rate from natural resources like lakes, rivers and underground water wells is faster than their replenishment rate.Less water for irrigation means less food grains production and eventually a global food crisis.Increasing demands of growth and development are causing water tables to decline at an alarming rate and agricultural lands are losing their fertility and nutrients (“Water”).Different states in India are fighting for their share of water bodies.It becomes difficult for rivers and groundwater resources in UK to satisfy the augmented water demands of summer heat.

This already suggests that the Abyssinian crisis fatally weakened the League of Nations, since the League changed its policies (a Volte-face) when France supported the invasion and mostly when Britain offered Italy other suggestions of gaining territory.In the Abyssinian crisis, the League was powerless once more and could not take any action against Italy as they favored Italy (to support against Nazi-Germany) rather than the loss of Abyssinia.Also the self interest Britain had in Manchuria provided Japan with protection, therefore fatally weakening the League.Instead of finding an effective solution to solve the crisis, it somehow found a way to damage itself and put itself under risk, ultimately destroying it.The Manchurian and Abyssi...

The Sudanese revolt threatened the British economy and if Britain did not act upon that threat, foreign relations would be put in danger.Conservative members of Parliament felt that military action should be taken against the Sudanese by grounds that Mahdi’s revolt would damage the reputation of Britain and threaten political and economic aspects.The Sudan crisis was when a Sudanese Muslim religious leader, Mahdi, rebelled against the Egyptian rule and foreign (British) control.This was continuously debated and analyzed, even though society felt that the government needed to make a decision quickly if the troops were to be rescued and the crisis avoided (document 6).During the Sudan crisis in 1884-1885, Great Britain’s Liberal government...

Without appropriate foresight, there is now a serious water crisis that Georgians are facing.A highly emotional solution since every city/county wants to maintain control over its own natural water supply.Its implementation is the main problem of not being embraced by many local jurisdictions, like in North Georgia’s water planning district.For example: when Augusta was asked about sharing its water with Atlanta, the answer was “no way.One of these is desalination — process of taking salt water and converting it to fresh water.

After a letter of regret was sent to the British, the Canadian Prime Minister St. Laurent proposed that, "in view of the urgent and spreading nature of the crisis, Lester B. Pearson assume responsibility for the Canadian role in the crisis with full confidence of the cabinet" (Georges-Picot, 1978 p.83).In December of 1957, Lester B. Pearson gained special recognition for Canadians on his work in the Suez Crisis when he became the first Canadian ever to win the Noble Peace prize.Hostilities ran high and the background causes that prompted this crisis contained the same fundamentals as were seen in the first and second world wars.If Canada had not become involved in the Suez Crisis , as a neutral party, it could have escalated into a world...

Compared with the Munich crisis that occurred during the pre-nuclear era, the nuclear crisis between two super powers was characterized by danger and uncertainty that brought humanity to the possibility of nuclear annihilation.The application of MAD doctrine during the Cold War could be exemplified by the Cuban Missile Crisis in which MAD was viewed as preventing the direct and full-scale confrontation between the US and Soviet Union.In the Munich Crisis, Chamberlain thought that appeasement would work to prevent Hitler from invading Czechoslovakia over Sudetenland.Establishing a known and credible deterrence is diametrically opposed to the policy of appeasement as was shown in the Munich crisis.Conclusion In Crisis diplomacy, leaders at...

The turning point in British decolonisation was the Suez Crisis in 1956 when Britain was unable to prevent the nationalisation of the Suez Canal which “had become Britain’s powerhouse.” The Suez Crisis “made plain for all to see that Britain was doomed both as a colonial power and as a world power.” After the Suez Crisis, African decolonisation was rapid and in 1957 the African Gold Coast, now Ghana became independent and was the first British African colony to gain independence.As stated previously decolonisation took significantly longer in Britain debatably because Britain saw decolonisation as “adjustment, accommodation, [and] gradualism.” Britain had planned to work with nationalist leaders to achieve an effective independence th...

Of course this point of view is represented in “Lord of the Flies” but it was more proximate to refer the point of view itself to the history of the 1950’s in Britain than the incidents in the novel.And that is because the novel does not reflect the political and social climate of the 1950’s in Britain, it tells a fictitious story on an island which is not accurately located, but it does reflect the authors belief and his view of man.The first location which is described is the beach including the bathing pool (water lagoon) and the platform where the meetings are being held.This menace was too hard for Britain and France, so they withdrew and Britain was no longer a world’s superpower but was dependent on the USA’s support.First of all ...

With this process, when the water is raised energy is produced, the water could then be filtered through a filtering system (reverse osmosis).In fact there is several reasons to explain this water crisis.This resource, which makes up 15 per cent of the drinkable water in South Africa, represents an important source of water.Excavation of a groundwater is another solution to provide a fresh water supply.The best solution seems to implement protocol against pollution of fresh water, as it’s effective, practical, and not an expensive way.

Austria and Britain particularly, were alarmed at this move, firstly due to the control Russia had over the mouth of the Danube and secondly the fear that Russia had laid the foundations down in order to sought the complete domination of the Ottoman Empire.Here, we can note again, that although the Turks may appear to be the ill-fated victims of great power politics, they were by no means innocent of hostile intentions as Alan Farmer would agree: “Western support in the mounting crisis presented them (the Turks) with a unique opportunity to take revenge on their traditional enemy Russia”.Britain and Russia for example, were understood to be “On reasonably good terms” and in 1844 both agreed to participate together in the ‘Near Eas...

Hence, the Great Powers scrambled to dominate Africa and several conflicts developed, such as the Boer War in 1899 between Britain and Netherlands to control South Africa.The Bosnian Crisis caused even more social and political divisions within the Balkans and this later led to war.Several conflicts had arisen due to this rivalry, which had not led to war: France and Britain were rivals in North Africa and almost went to war in 1898, France and Germany disputed during the Moroccan Crises in 1905 and 1911 and over the Alsace-Lorraine region in 1871, and Russia’s Asian empire threatened Japan and Britain.Unlike the social unrest that was present in the Balkans for several time and that had caused conflicts even before WWI, the economic cri...

In the 1980s, almost thirty years after the Suez crisis, the British documents dating back to the 1950s were availed to the public.Steven holds that the 1956 crisis was simply an apogee of the American vexation with the ever-growing British control over Asia and especially the Middle East.The author offers a systematic account of what happened before, during, and after the crisis by highlighting the roles of the United States, Britain, Egypt, and the Soviet Union in the crisis.Given that Freiberger used records from the key players in the conflict, this book stands out as the most factual account of what exactly transpired before, during, and after the Suez crisis.Therefore, by going back to 1950 during Truman’s presidency, Freiberger gi...

At what point down the line an actual absolute crisis at a nation scale is reached is still yet to occur; although given the social and economic value attached to water, and its three-dimensional effect upon food supply, ecosystem health, and standard of living for example, it may already indicate a crisis is underway (Newson 1999 cited Newson 2000).Theoretically this coordinates the upstream-downstream interests and encourages more productive/efficient use of water through improved technology such as crop per drop (Postel 2000), which in turn allows all of the water demands to be attained equitably.Consequently Palestine is in a water crisis since it cannot meet its own water needs (Frederiksen 2003).In doing this it allows for all of ...
