Core and Periphery

Some countries remain largely unconnected to the modern globalised world.

This is especially true in Sub-Saharan Africa , which remains very much part of the global periphery (see map)

Other peripheral regions include north South Asia, the Andean region, parts of East and Central Asia.

Growth areas (upward transition) are much better connected to the global core areas.

Sub-Saharan Africa has a range of factors which make development very challenging; these include debt levels, landlocked states, conflict, corruption, Aids/ HIV, malaria, lack of infrastructure and communications, low education levels, drought and many others
