The article below is about ‘successes’ of the Sendai Framework and looks at what an earthquake-proof city could look like if it successfully implemented ideas from the framework itself.

I have also attached a link to the full Sendai Framework – you only received a small part of it in the lesson today!

Your homework is to make notes under the following headings using pages 39 – 54 (the actual pages on the document are 35 – 50):

https://www.oxfamamerica.org/static/media/files/even-it-up-inequality-oxfam.pdf

  1. How is extreme inequality a barrier to poverty reduction?
  2. How does extreme inequality undermine growth?
  3. How does inequality hinder poverty-reducing potential of growth?
  4. How does economic inequality compound gender inequality?
  5. How does economic inequality drive inequalities in health, education and life chances?
  6. How does extreme inequality threaten society?

I would highly recommend reading the whole article as well as the bits you need specifically for these questions.

I would like to see that you have completed this work during NEA week next week.
