This pool of wisdom recorded in the Language of Geographical connectivity, could be of great potential value in guiding decisions, and the formulation of remedial strategies required to redress the pernicious effects of human cupidity and reckless exploitation of human and physical resources.

We are all geographers, embarked on a voyage in search of the optimum location with the promise of support and betterment of our future living conditions. But, for most of the world's people, this is an experience of Life fraught with hardship and deprivation.
