Features of Africa
Africa is the second-largest continent , after Asia, covering 30,330,000 sq km; about 22% of the total land area of the Earth. It measures about 8,000 km from north to south and about 7,360 km from east to west. The highest point on the continent is Mt. Kilimanjaro - Uhuru Point - (5,963 m/19,340 ft) in Tanzania. The lowest is Lake 'Asal (153 m/502 ft below sea level) in Djibouti. The Forests cover about one-fifth of the total land area of the continent.
The Woodlands, bush lands, grasslands and thickets occupy about two-fifth.
And the Deserts and their extended margins have the remaining two-fifths of African land. World's longest river : The River Nile drains north-eastern Africa, and, at 6,650 km (4,132 mi), is the longest river in the world. It is formed from the Blue Nile, which originates at Lake Tana in Ethiopia, and the White Nile, which originates at Lake Victoria. World's second largest lake : Lake Victoria is the largest lake in Africa and the is the world's second-largest freshwater lake - covering an area of 69,490 sq km (26,830 sq mi) and lies 1,130 m (3,720 ft) above sea level. Its greatest known depth is 82 m (270 ft).

A L OOK AT THE P AST T he indigenous peoples in Congo were forest dwellers. Their descendants, primarily members of the Efe and Mbuti tribes, still live as hunters and gatherers in the northern Ituri forest. Late in the first millennium A.D., Bantu-speaking peoples established themselves throughout Central Africa. Their culture was based on ironworking and agriculture, and they largely displaced the indigenous peoples. B y the 15th century, several kingdoms had developed in the area, including Kongo, Kuba, Luba and Lunda. When the Portuguese explorer Diogo Cam reached the mouth of the Congo River in 1482, he discovered that the coastal kingdoms were capturing people from nearby areas and sending them to work as slaves in Saudi Arabia. Over the next few centuries, Portuguese and French traders enslaved millions of Africans, and sent them to work on plantations in North and South America. The slave trade was abolished in 1885. I n 1878, King Leopold II of Belgium hired Anglo-American explorer Henry Morton Stanley to establish outposts along the Congo River. Leopold persuaded other European rulers to recognize Congo as his personal territory, which he named the Congo Free State. D uring Leopold's reign, the Congolese were brutally treated. They were forced to build a railroad and collect ivory and rubber. As many as 10 million Congolese died between 1880 and 1910. When news of the atrocities became public in 1908, the Belgian government took control of the colony and renamed it the Belgian Congo. Although the Belgian government improved working conditions slightly, it too was a harsh ruler and continued to extract natural resources. For years, the Congolese struggled to achieve independence.

Page 17 of 32 Globalization: Political Challenges For Africa
send me this paper

7 pages in length. The challenges for Africa inherent to the concept of globalization are both grand and far-reaching. Inasmuch as African economic existence relies heavily upon farming and exports the dawning of globalization threatens to make such conventional practices obsolete. According to economists, globalization and the movement toward an information economy heavily dependent on knowledge-based products threatens to see Africa's already tenuous position in the global economy deteriorate further. That Africa's economy depends upon locally produced commodities, such as vanilla, sugar, cocoa and palm oil, speaks to the aspect of modernized techniques that are being developed as a means by which to create such commodities faster, cheaper and within laboratories or non-traditional environments.

4. Peabody Museum Of Archaeology And Ethnology/Galleries: First Floor
Detail of a kuba textile, Central africa, in the Kalahari desert of southern africa,from prehistory to such as nutrition and the rights of indigenous peoples.
FIRST FLOOR GALLERIES Ju/Wasi: Bushmen of the Kalahari This gallery contains an exhibition of the Ju/wasi: Bushmen of the Kalahari. This exhibition portrays a comprehensive view of the Ju/wasi, a people living in the Kalahari desert of southern Africa, from prehistory to the present. It also includes two videos made from original field footage. The exhibit illustrates the relevance of the Ju/wasi to our understanding of hunting and gathering and to current global issues such as nutrition and the rights of indigenous peoples. Hall of the North American Indian The Hall of the North American Indian houses the exhibition, Change and Continuity, featuring a selection of objects from the Peabody Museum's permanent collections spanning the continent of North America. It illustrates the diversity of North American cultures as seen in the objects produced principally by indigenous peoples living during the 19th century, a period of profound social change for these societies, and features aspects of contemporary cultures. Distinctive features of historic interactions between natives and Europeans are considered for each culture area: Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, Plains, California/Plateau, Northwest Coast, Arctic, Subarctic.

5. Peabody Museum Of Archaeology And Ethnology/Galleries: Fourth Floor
Detail of a kuba textile, Central africa, this image by presenting the whole spectrumof exquisite manufactures of the indigenous peoples of Oceania
FOURTH FLOOR GALLERIES Pacific Islands Hall The Pacific Islands hall exhibits a wide range of objects from Oceania, including Indonesia and the Philippines, items from Hawai'i, Samoa, Tahiti, and the Austral and Marquesas Islands, the Sepik River area, and the rest of Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia. Introductory Text to the Hall: Charles Willoughby, a former director of the Peabody Museum, began his 1926 report to then Harvard President Lowell by announcing the opening of a large gallery on the fourth floor of the new section of the museum (room 45) and the rearranging of the adjoining gallery of the older section (room 44). The Asian and South East Asian, Melanesian, and Australian collections were housed in the area currently occupied by African storage. The Polynesian and Micronesian artifacts were exhibited in this hall where they remained relatively unchanged for 63 years. An attempt has been made to preserve the Victorian flavor of the original hall, with its pale walls, rich, dark woods, period lighting fixtures, and a balcony which affords a view of the Pre-Columbian gallery below. We have substituted archivally sound supports and fixtures for the nails and copper wiring which once impaled layers of artifacts.

1. At the national level
All governments have been asked to prepare and present a national assessment report on the Rio process. But who wrote it? And did they consult with civil society? You live and breathe what they assessed; you need to take a critical view of it. Negotiators cannot make the right decisions on how to fix things if they do not even know what the real problems are. If the national report does not reflect reality, then you may have to work with other civil society or major group representatives to make your own assessment. It is too late to start the work on a full shadow report, but a short paper with comments on the official report can do the job and has a good chance of being picked up by your national media. A group of NGOs have been making their own shadow reports during the last few months, and their presentation during the WSSD PrepCom in Bali will be published in time for the Summit.
