  • Course description
    The study of Development Geography focuses on the developing regions of the world, often referred to as the 'Third World'. These regions, which comprise 75 percent of the world's population, are having to adapt to a rapidly changing world dominated by the powerful forces of globalisation. In addition, these regions are facing deep seated, as well as newly emerging development challenges, such as social inequality, distorted economies, political instability and HIV/AIDS.
