Interdependence reliance of people on goods, resources and knowledge from other parts of the world Early Examples: Trade of goods along the Silk Road from China, and between great civilizations like the Byzantine Empire and the Muslim Empire. Silk Road
Interdependence Modern Examples: – Military Interdependence: Alliances during World War I (Allies vs. Central Powers), World War II (Allies vs. Axis Powers) and the Cold War (NATO vs. Warsaw Pact). – Economic Interdependence European Union (EU): European nations have unified economically. They have worked to lower tariffs and encourage free trade among their members. North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA): Countries in North America (U.S., Canada, Mexico) have lowered trade barriers and linked their economies. – Environmental Interdependence: Countries in the world work together today to solve various environmental problems: Ozone Layer: Air pollution has caused a hole in the ozone layer, which creates increased exposure to radiation (results could be skin cancer, or destruction of crops). Deforestation: Widespread destruction of the worlds forests to gain lumber, or more land for farming, building and grazing animals Global Warming: The rising of the average temperature worldwide. If it continues, it will reach a point where the arctic glaciers begin to melt, causing worldwide floods. Scientists believe global warming is caused by the greenhouse effect, which is a build up of warm air in the lower atmosphere. This occurs from the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation. Desertification: The process of fertile land being transformed into desert land. This is generally resulting from human interaction either by deforestation or by the over grazing of farm animals. As the plant life is destroyed, winds blow the fertile soil away, thus spreading the desert. The Sahara Desert in Africa is spreading about 50 miles a year due to this process.
