Development





Stage two of Rostow's Model: Pre-Conditions for Take Off- agriculture is a large part of Nepalese society but it has started to become more mechanized and factories have started to appear in more populated areas but poverty is still a large issue. Most of the factories are less mechanized so child labor is also an issue.





  1. Development in Nepal is classified by the way that agriculture is relied on and the scarcity of developed cities with complex infrastructure.
  2. Nepal struggles to provide enough food, money, and work for their own citizens due to lack of agricultural advancement and governmental support.
  3. Nepal's barriers include their extreme poverty and the millions of people that have migrated to work abroad. 
  4. China has a huge influence and control over all of Nepal's infrastructure and it greatly stunts their ability to grow economically and politically.  

Current Events/Maps 

Climate

Nepal's climate is influenced by maritime and continental factors, and has four distinct seasons. Spring lasts from March to May, and is warm with rain showers, and temperatures around 22°C. Summer, from June to August, is the monsoon season when the hills turn lush and green. Autumn lasts through the month of November and Winter spans the months between December and February.

Water pollution is an issue in large cities 

Air pollution - Incredible air pollution caused by factories without regulations

Pesticide pollution - Is a problem, but less severe than most Asian countries

Deforestation - Losing arable land due to lack of roots, causes landslides

Environmental Issues

  • Nepal has had enormous issues with their tectonic plates and record breaking earthquakes
  • Deforestation also plays a role in the pollution of Nepal's air by hindering the oxygen cycle and it also leads to soil erosion and landslides
  • Lakes a starting to fill up again in Nepal as a reverse glaciation process occurs due to the Greenhouse Effect being an extreme source of environmental stress due to a thinner atmosphere
  • Hydroelectric energy production has huge potential in being the leading renewable resource in Nepal due to huge glacial flows that could be utilized
  • Nonrenewable resources have potential in Nepal, but poverty and lack of funding have stopped the exploration of their harvesting

  1. Earth's environment in Nepal has changed only in the aspect of pollution. Being bordered by a huge world superpower, China, Nepal has had to implement factories that pollute water, air, and the arable land in the country.
  2. Humans have changed the Earth's environment by building factories with unenforced regulations that allow massive pollution.
  3. Today, in Nepal, global climate change has started to melt Nepal's glaciers and cause lakes to rise dramatically, this in turn gives the inhabitants near to the Himalayas more clean water. 
  4.  Internationally, countries have started to help Nepal by loaning the country money to further clean and stabilize its environmental preservation and development
