COCA COLA- protests from local communities since 1999- they weren't happy.

-No compensation for injured workers- workers rights.

-Toxin chemicals in sludge- can affect the nervous system and cause cancer- health.

HUNGER- drought leads to flooding-affects houses, lack of seeds, poor nutrition

To try and solve it they introduced the PDS: Public distribution system however there wasnt enough food and it was poor quality.

ELECTRICITY- solar power- residents got trained how to work them- skills were devloped.

Poor eyesight due to lack of electricty-education and work life was effected. Health as no cold storage to keep food or medicines.

MINING- Unsafe, low wages, no safety

Re-housing schemes-unproductive

ROADS- unpaved so
