    For the rebuttal in the DME, do we have to come up with fresh arguments against the proposal...or do we just use the ones used originally?
    Yeah has to be completely new arguments.

    No worries! But could u tell me like what each paragraph is on for govt responses to reduce wealth? Like the bare minimum
    Sorry was doing DME there. I'll try and find my plan, but I'll you this for now...

    Just found this site and it had essay plan I think you need. "government policies to reduce poverty?)

    https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/gc...1/essay-plans/

    and also this site below has essay plan-

    Essay 6 - 2009
    Critically examine the success of recent government policies to reduce poverty.
    Intro could explain that UK has seen consistent economic growth since WW2 but the wealth gap
    has continued –
    relative
    poverty affects millions – perhaps give figure on wealth of richest
    compared to poorest. Major parties accept need to redistribute wealth through tax and benefits but
    disagree on best way of doing so.
    Briefly describe causes of poverty – unemployment, low pay, gender, race, age and region – some
    statistics but not too much detail because question is about govt polices and you must get on to
    these.
    Next look at Govt policies – this will focus mainly on Labour govt policies since 1997 and their
    success – too early to judge policies of new coalition govt (but can mention their plans towards end
    of the answer). Labour promoted social inclusion and concentrated on getting people back to work
    as main way of ending poverty. Briefly describe some strategies such as Jobcentre Plus, New Deal ,
    National Minimum Wage and Tax Credits – give some figures but avoid danger of going into too
    much detail.
    Next could briefly look at benefit payments such as Jobseekers Allowance, Income support and
    Sure Start – again some stats but avoid getting bogged down.
    Could then look at how successful polices were. Briefly what happened to unemployment & low
    pay – however employment gains may have been due to economic boom seen in many countries –
    recession likely to raise unemployment – current figures?
    Could mention Labour success in tackling priorities of child poverty and pensioner poverty.
    However, required massive public (govt) spending – with recession this is no longer possible – cuts
    instead.
    If time, could conclude with brief comment on coalition plans (e.g. for Universal Credit by 2013)
    but public spending cuts will dominate what they can do in the coming years so those in poverty
    may face a tough time. (Already figure for child poverty has stopped dropping, some expect rise in
    coming months.)

    Eh, I just realised that I really have no idea how to structure an essay on government strategies to reduce health inequalities...

    Any help? I have info on all the policies/schemes (smoking ban, school meals, prescriptions etc) but I don't really know what to do with the info to make a decent essay...

    Here's an essay plan which I hurriedly wrote for the role of UNOs in promoting development in African countries:

    UNOs Essay Plan

    Very brief introductory sentence – UN specialised agencies have undertaken several projects in sub-Saharan Africa to stimulate development.

    UNICEF
    Involved in helping women and children in 45 sub-saharan African (SSA) countries and focuses on needs of children and their mothers
    Case study-
    2007-2007 in cooperation with Ugandan govt launced the “Go to school, back to school, stay in school campaign”, aimed to benefit 1.3 million schoolchildren.
    Previously <50% of children in the Kotido district were enrolled in primary education and of those who were, <50% completed their schooling.
    This project targeted 450,000 children and 4,500 teachers in 650 schools. Provided utensils/equipment/teacher-training materials for use by teachers
    This is working to achieve the MDG of universal primary education, however, statistics (from 2012 MDG progress report) show that primary school enrolment in SSA only moderate, 38m still not in education.

    FAO (Food and Agriculture Organisation)
    Focused on developing agriculture, raising levels of nutrition, + improving conditions for rural dwellers.
    Case Study – 1997-2001 Africover Project
    Between this years, FAO created a database compiling info from several afr. countries on roads, climate, drought, natural resources, etc
    Uses high-resolution satellite to continuously scan weather patterns, projected crop yields, + allows comparisms with previous years to be made
    In turn, this data allows afr govts, UNOs, NGOs to plan ahead and take account of potential natural disasters eg famine/drought.
    FAO regularly confers with govt to decide upon action to be taken
    Addresses food insecurity
    Also works in partnership with govts to provide training in use of technology and methodologies needed to interpret + develop the databases.
    Positives: training encourages self-sufficiency, thus no danger of over-reliance on external aid
    Focused on tackling 2 MDGs and meets MDG goal of developing a global partnership for development.
    However, weak in ensuring environmental sustainability – people in SSA countries still at a disadvantage in access to drinking water and the MDG sanitation target is deemed still too far out of reach, according to UN in 2012.

    World Food Programme (WPF)
    Focuses on meeting medical needs and promoting good health
    Case study: Burkina Faso 2009 food voucher programme
    Benefitted 180,000 people in country’s 2 largest cities
    Designed to improve access to food, whilst boosting local economy
    Food usually available in urban markets but many too poor to afford it, however, through the FAO’s scheme people can avoid worker by buying products in the local market which, in turn, benefits the local economy
    Positives: once again, self-sufficiency allows BF to develop without being overly-reliant on outside aid and stimulates local economy and provides many with livelihood, others lifted out of extreme hunger
    Nevertheless, in spite of success, the UN is yet to alleviate hunger in SSA fully. 2012 MDG progress report demonstrates that despite original pledge to halve world hunger by 2015, levels are still very high – indeed, 10m a year still die of hunger/hunger-related diseases in SSA. Progress is described as being “insufficient to meet the target if prevailing trends persist.”

    Conclusion – summing up argument that despite UN’s various successes it cannot be denied that African countries still have a long way to go if they are to become fully economically and socially developed.
