Madagascar has many natural features and resources. Madagascar has extreme climate which is usually hot. It is mostly deserted due to deforestation. The west areas of Madagascar are dry with many tress and are sloped towards the sea. It has plateaus towards its south-west side which is also dry for example the Mahafaly Plateau. There are few grass plains on the south-east side and mountains towards the north. Madagascar also has a number of natural resources, including graphite, chromite, coal, bauxite, salt, quartz, tar sands, semi-precious stones and mica. There are also fishing areas offshore and potential for hydro power. The majority of the population depends on farming, largely rice and cattle. Madagascar has experienced steady population growth throughout the twentieth century. Its population is a unique blend of African and Asian people and cultures.French (official), and Malagasy (official) are the main languages spoken all over the country. Madagascar is filled with people with following religious views,
Indigenous beliefs 52%,
Due to the country's tropic and humid dry weather, malaria remains as a common disease among people.
Also many political reasons are limiting Madagascar's speed of growth. Population of Madagascar The population of Madagascar is 22,585,517 recorded in July 2011, data for 2012 was not available. Life expectancy is around 57 years. Birth rate is an average of 5.6 children per woman. As you can see, there's great population increase in the graph shown by the gap of ten years. If this continues, then Madagascar would face many problems especially financial ones and there might be condition of famine throughout the country. Literacy rate is just over 68%. GDP per capita Infant Mortality Rate Total: 47.4 deaths/1,000 live births
Country comparison to the world: 47
Male: 51.5 deaths/1,000 live births
Female: 43.2 deaths/1,000 live births (2012 est.) The GDP per capita for Madagascar was 900$ (PPP) as recorded last in 2011. This graph shows the GDP per capita of Madagascar. At the beginning as you can see, it started out really bad but later on near the years 2008-2009 the situations got much better but in the years followed it started to get poor again. That's mainly because of a massive increase in population, political reasons and because of government services. Thank You For Listening Conclusion Madagascar is known as a common LEDC. The country is slowly developing and moving towards success. This is mainly because of it isolation to the rest of the world. The conditions for Madagascar got better in the year of 2008/2009 but they failed and once again resulted into a poor country. It is said that Madagascar would be completely developed by 2059 and the GDP per capita would be 6.5 times more. The government is keeping track of people and is planning to apply the rules followed in China of having no more than three children. There are some elections held in Madagascar for new PM's who believes that he would gift them a bright future and solve all the problems. Action Plan -Choose group of 2/3 people
- Divide parts between ourselves
-Research the topics and note down findings
- Create a draft paragraph on the part
- Giving our opinion
- Improve draft and make full draft copy.
- Both editing it and giving it a final touch.
-Then include pictures and set path
-Present! Environmental features Madagascar is home to the some of the richest and most magnificent rainforests in the world
Many rare species can be found there
Madagascar is currently suffering in some areas from soil erosion as a result of deforestation and overgrazing, desertification, and contamination of surface water with raw sewage and organic waste. Several species of flora and fauna that are unique to the islands are endangered. Regular cyclones cause flooding in lower areas mostly near farm lands.
