You have  been asked to write an analysis on how global population growth has  caused the following problem and how it affects a developing country of  your choosing:A  growing global population that consumes natural resources is partially  to blame for the release of greenhouse gases since human consumption  patterns lead to deforestation, soil erosion, and farming (overturned  dirt releases CO2). However, the critical issue is the burning of fossil fuels (hydrocarbons) such as coal  oil and natural gas to produce energy that is used for things like  electricity production, and vehicle, heating, and cooking fuels.The UN has asked that you choose a developing country from this list: UN has also given you the following guidelines.ContentThe  UN has asked that your paper contain three sections.

How Emissions Causes Problems for the Developing WorldWhich countries produce the most greenhouse gases?What are the economic challenges of these emissions (include examples from your chosen country)?What are the security challenges of these emissions (include examples from your chosen country)?What are the political challenges of these emissions (include examples from your chosen country)?Section III. Causes and Solutions of Greenhouse GasesWhat are two causes of greenhouse gases?What are potential solutions to address each of the causes you identified?What is the relationship between population control and greenhouse gases?ConclusionProvide  a conclusion of half a page minimum that includes a summary of your  findings that the United Nations can use to inform future policy  decisions.Success TipsIn answering each question, use examples from your developing country to illustrate your points.The  UN needs facts and objective analysis on which to base future policy  decisions; avoid personal opinion and make sure your answers are based  on information you find through research.Formatting RequirementsMake sure your paper consists of four to six pages (re: 1,200 words minimum, not including the cover page, reference page, and quoted material [if any]).Create headings for each section of your paper as follows:Section I.
