your proposal Thomas rettenwender MA, Mag Arch, LEED AP, Architect Poverty is the lack of basic human needs, such as clean and fresh water, nutrition, health care, education, clothing and shelter, because of the inability to afford them. About 1.7 billion people live in 'absolute' poverty. According to the UN State of the World Population 2007 report, sometime in the middle of 2007, the majority of people worldwide will be living in towns or cities, for the first time in history; this is referred to as the arrival of the "Urban Millennium" or the 'tipping point'. In regard to future trends, it is estimated 93% of urban growth will occur in developing nations, with 80% of urban growth occurring in Asia and Africa.[7][8] the characteristics of a human population.
Commonly used demographics include gender, race, age, income, disabilities, mobility (in terms of travel time to work or number of vehicles available), educational attainment, home ownership, employment status, and even location. more than one out of six people lack access to safe drinking water, namely 1.1 billion people, and more than two out of six lack adequate sanitation, namely 2.6 billion people (Estimation for 2002, by the WHO/UNICEF JMP, 2004). The scientific consensus on climate change is, "that climate is changing and that these changes are in large part caused by human activities." [4] Per capita waste generation in OECD countries has increased by 14% since 1990, and 35% since 1980.[3] Waste generation generally grows at a rate slightly lower than GDP in these countries.

Developed countries consume more than 60% of the world industrial raw materials and only comprise 22% of the world's population.[4] speakers junction, havanna, Cuba
