Unit 8 Assignment – SS250
Technology, Policy, and Problem Solving
This Assignment builds on the work you did for the Unit 7 Discussion regarding technology as the resolution to the issue of world hunger.
For this Assignment, you will write a draft proposal to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to implement an existing technology to end hunger in any single developing nation anywhere in the world. Suggestion: Since you have already done some research on such a nation for the Unit 7 Discussion, you may want to use that nation for this Assignment.
Be sure that your proposal includes these elements.
· Conduct internet research to write a referenced introduction that explains the mission and purpose of the USAID.
· Explain why helping the country you have chosen is a good fit for the ASAID’s mission and purpose.
· Conduct research to provide a referenced description of the causes of hunger in the nation that you have chosen.
· Include statistical data about the population of the nation, how many are hungry, and death rates due to hunger.
Technology as a Solution to the Problem
· Give a referenced explanation of how an existing technology could address those causes.
· Provide an example of how implementation of this technology has previously worked to alleviated hunger in different nation.
· Project the cost of implementing the technology.
· Identify who you think should own, maintain and implement the technology that will be initiated to end hunger in this developing nation.
· Discuss at least one potential collaborator who could share the cost of implementing and maintaining the technology to end hunger.
· Explain how the implementation of technology that you propose would help meet USAID mission while ending hunger in the nation.
