Model Answer:

Well, we are living in a globalized world where everything happening at the international level.

What it is?
There are many problems which are international too and a few of these problems of terrorism, the problem of drug smuggling, trafficking, and poaching of animals but I am going to talk about one of the most serious concerns which is global warming.

What causes that problem?
Global warming is the one which is going to affect the entire planet. The problem is increasing rapidly and the reason behind this is most countries today are focusing on their economic growth for which they are primarily focused on industrialization.

They want to drive their vehicles. Their energy consumption has increased to the greatest Heights and that’s the reason why the release of carbon and other toxic gases is increasing at an exponential rate.

What the effects of this problem are?
Today, the temperature creature of planet Earth is increasing and as per the assumptions of scientists by 2050, the temperature would increase to the greatest extent and the planet would not be fit for living anymore.

This means that this problem is of great concern and this problem should be resolved internationally as well.

Collaborative efforts of all the nations as well as policies can really help to reduce the impact of global warming. Fortunately, most governments over the world today understand the gravity of this problem.

That’s why international policies and reforms are being brought to bring some kind of change.

Finally, I would say the although this problem is international but the Collaborative efforts of the governments of the world as well as individuals can help the world escape it.
