Agriculture can prove extremely difficult to maintain on a rocky mountain and with such poor infrastructure it is also difficult to import goods on a JIT (Just In Time) sort of basis where you receive these goods as you need them. Infrastructure also includes communication and other services and with such a technologically developed era we depend on technology and this can deter a lot of people from settling in these regions, additionally the wildlife in these regions consists greatly of predators which can be deemed a threat to habitants who are unprepared. The sheer abundance of wildlife and non industrial landscapes can also mean that people will not want to live in these regions

In a paragraph of 125 words, describe the effects of European colonization on the people of Sub-Saharan Africa.


    By the 1800s, Europe had colonized most of Africa, primarily to provide raw materials for its industries and marketplaces for its product. Economic development under colonial rule took several paths stemming from the region's diversity. Colonial systems defined their borders without regard to existing cultural bonds. These boundaries and the practices of colonial rulers served to increase ethnic conflict. The drawing of political borders, divide and conquer policies, and favoritism toward an ethnic group was the factors resulting in increased ethnic conflict during the colonial period.

    There were many effects of colonization of Europe. One example could be the government. The form was nonrepresentative. It also focused on maintaining order. It was unable to provide services, and it was inadequately funded by foreign colonial powers. It maintained divisive policies.

    Another example could be the economic side. Revenue obtained through the export of raw materials was used to benefit colonial powers. African workers were also forced to work on farms, in mines, and in urban areas. The culture also changed because of the colonization. Families were separated and family members had to fill new roles. Christianity spread, and so public education was available for some.

Hope this helps!!!!

20. What are the reasons that people say international aid to Africa is doing more harm than good? What are some alternatives to sending international aid to African governments?

When Africa is given aid, a large portion of it is embezzled by the corrupt governments or dictators, leaving leaving little for the poor. Also, this enforces neocolonialism; African countries are forced to depend upon and follow the commands of the developed donors who give them aid. Furthermore, it causes inflation. The value of African currencies drops as more money is pumped into their economies through aid. Also, Africans need to earn money through working, and working will help Africa develop. Since aid is dumped into African countries, Africans and forced to become unemployed, lowering the chances of development in the future.
