SEE THE EXAMPLE BELOW:
Good morning Dr. Royal-Smith and classmates,
For the week 6 assignment, I plan to use various sources to write a complete persuasive paper to address the questions in the assignment about the relationship between atmospheric weather patterns and food security in the developing world. Since it is a persuasive paper, I will use research driven from primary and secondary sources. In this paper, I will use a combination of research that includes SOC 450 course material including the Hite Chapter readings (2021), additional course media information, World Bank Reports for Developing Countries, and information from the Library of Congress. I have checked the World Bank List of Developing Countries (2020) from the Course Info section, I have selected the countries of Liberia and Mexico. Both countries have existing climate change, global warming, and food security issues policies.
I also plan to use Strayer University online research portal, academic research databases and other credible sources to gather data that will address the questions in this assignment as well as providing a well written persuasive paper on the matter. The focus of this paper will be within the specific course materials and learning outcomes associated with the assignment, which is to focus on evaluating the impact that climate change has on the growth of the global population and the security on its food sources. Below are two sources I will include in this paper.
