CASE STUDY OF A DEVELOPMENT WORKER

Students learning and practical application is facilitated by the integration of technology and education has illustrated by the document. A student is able to understand the tit bits of the production system and its implication to the environment. The document also proposes a list of alternative actions that might be carried out instead of the main plan or action that is proposed. Other documents operate similarly to the EIS. These documents are like for instance the Environmental Impact Report. This report is required by the state government of California before certain actions are carried out. Different states require different documents but the documents have the same purpose (Eccleston, 2000). As the main purpose of the federal organization NEPA is the promotion of the making of informed decisions by the agencies that it oversees, the organization has the work of making sure that proper information that concerns any significant impact on the environment is available to the leaders of the agencies it oversees and the public in general. The organization through the EIS document and other legislations creates a comprehensive method of assessment of not only the potential risks but also the existing risks of the environment. The body’s legislations ensure this all at once. The act also serves the purpose of encouraging the communication, cooperation and mutual existence between all participants in the making of important environmental decisions; which include private and government officials and the citizens of America. In technology, the act and the EIS document are used to assess the impact, both positive and negative, that introduction of new technology in certain areas would have on the environment. the statement is also quite instrumental in preventing projects that have more negative impacts than positive on the environment from achieving full implementation (Kreske, 2006).

(Second part)

The volunteer is working with a cooperative that requires rice seeds for planting. He has an important position working with the community and a cooperative society. However, he views his situation as one where he is encountering a major setback after the Director of cooperatives travels on a work related mission out of the country. The appointed deputy has no knowledge of the volunteer’s pending matters about seeds and the chairperson who accompanies the volunteer happens to be his old friend. The volunteer naturally feels disturbed, as any person would be in that situation as the person h expects to fulfill his requests is too busy catching up with his old friend rather than acting to fulfill his request. The volunteer is even more angered by the pressure he is facing since the members of the cooperative are pressurizing him to get the seeds for them. The chairperson of the cooperative who was also supposed to pressurize his old friend to speedup the process assumed that the volunteer had everything under control, which was wrong. The situation was bad as the rains had already fell and the people felt that it was a loss to wait until the rainy season started as they would lose considerable amounts of it. The other option the people wanted to take was to plant their own seeds. This was bad as their seeds were not disease protected and they would end up producing a poor yield and most of the crop would die in the farm. The volunteer however did not know that his case was among many others that were being handled concurrently and that there was a shortage of vehicles to deliver the rice to the cooperative. As the days were diminishing, and his deadline nearing the volunteer felt more and more pressure on his shoulders. The success of the cooperative depended on him and the person in charge was not competent according to him. Even after the trip to the capital, things were not looking okay for the volunteer.
