Transcript of Madagascar

Madagascar Introduction I choose to do Madagascar because of the unique culture and wide variety of foods, animals and plants. The difference in culture made me want to research this country even further. I really like how tropical this country is and how the Malagasy live their lives. In this presentation you will see important facts, people, and how Madagascar connects into the demographic transititon. Data Sheet summary Head of Government: Andry Rajoelina

Public displays of affection such as a kiss on the cheek are acceptable, however, showing of anger isn't, because it is a sign of aggression and it is taken as a threat.

It has one main culture, malagasy. Madagascar is an island and it has a boundary of the indian ocean. The only border disputes are the ones involving water trade. It is an oval shaped compact state. Unit 5 Unit 6 country rank: 135
Life expectancy: 61.2
Literacy rate: 70.7

There are 80% of the malagasy labor force in agriculture,
11% in the industry sector and 9% in the services sector.
Antananarvio is the countries main industrial region and
it is also the capital. The major industries in madagascar
include vanilla, coffee, agriculture, tourism and mining. Unit 7 urban poulation:5428753.7
Urban pop. %: 29.2
Largest cities:
Antananarivo, 1,391,433

Richer people in madagascar, known as the andriana live
in the middle of the cites wth the andevo, the lower class
serving families. While the hova, the middle class families live
on the outskirts of the town. Future outlook Current events article it relates to the political and poulation units.
it talks about how the greater the population with cancer
in an area of a city, the greater the amount of workers and hospital
beds and medical help, are sent there
they give a certain number amounts of free treatments
in an area, but the rising population is making it hard to keep giving treatments Projected population 2025: 32,965,9701
Projected polputation 2050: 65,460,246
Infant Mortality Rate: 51.45
fertility rate: 5.02
HIV rate: 24.5 million I think madagascar is in stage three of the demographic transition model. They
have a low cdr and a declining cbr. They have a very low
unemployment rate5.9%, high literacy rate of 68.9% for both males and females and a growing life expectance of 61. Madagascar practices subsistence agriculture. About 80% of the Malagasy work force is within the agricultural sector.
Traditional farming methods vary from location to location, according to population density, climate and water supply and The most intensive form of cultivation is practiced among the groups of the central highlands, where population densities are the highest. At the other extreme are the extensive slash and burn clearing and shifting cultivation in the south and the east. I think this country has a bright future because of its increasing dependence in the world trade. They produce alot for the MDC's. The cdr and cbr are both dropping leading to a low NIR. The literacy rates are growing and in many years the country will develop alot over the next 100 years.
