Assignment 3b: Analysis on the Threats Defense Argument
Due in Week 10 and worth 100 points
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 two of
those four. Here are the specific tasks you will complete:
Review the remaining four threats that you did not use in Assignment 3a.
Pick two of the four to focus on in Assignment 3b.
Identify the reasons why you think these two threats are less critical than the four threats you chose for your PowerPoint presentation.
Step II. Prepare Your Report
The UN has given you the following guidelines.
Introduction
Briefly introduce the topic of the analysis (about 100-150 words).
State the topic and intent of the paper.
Identify the two threats you will discuss in the paper in the order in which they appear in the paper.
Section I. Threat 1
Write an opening statement describing the perception of the threat.
Write one page giving three reasons that explain why you saw this threat as less critical than the four you chose for your presentation in Assignment 3a.
Support these reasons with at least three credible sources.
Section II. Threat 2
Write an opening statement describing the perception of the threat.
Write one page giving three reasons to explain why you saw this threat as less critical than the four you chose for your presentation in Assignment 3a.
Support these reasons with at least three credible sources.
Conclusion
Offer a summary (one page or less) of your defense of your choices that the United Nations can use to address their prioritization concerns.
Formatting Requirements
Your paper may consist of up to four pages (not including the cover or reference pages).
Create headings for each section of your paper as follows:
Introduction
Threat 1 (include the name of your chosen threat)
Threat 2 (include the name of your chosen threat)
Conclusion
Use and cite four to six credible sources in your analysis. You may use the same source for more than one threat as long as you use a minimum of four different sources. A list of potential resources is available at the end of this course guide.
Make sure your paper contains both in-text citations and a source list, per SWS guidelines; refer to the Strayer Writing Standards (SWS) document for reference.
Include a cover page with your name, the date you submitted the paper, and your instructors name.
The specific course learning outcome associated with this assignment is as follows:
Examine the factors that account for why the growth in the world’s population can negatively affect the global society.
