lack of affordable housing
lack of clean water
lack of disaster preparedness
   This list is by no means exhaustive
and can be debatable. Remember, a
world problem is something that affects
more than one continent and can be
prevented. Natural disasters cannot be
prevented but lack of disaster
preparedness can be prevented.
   In the interest of diversity, some of
these are not necessarily World
Problems yet it is good to let the students
choose something they are really
interested in.
   All of these world problems can be
grouped into one of five categories:
   - Environment
   - Health
   - Violence
   - Poverty
   - Education
Some can even fit into more than one.
