Demographic Transition

I need assistance with a project concerning demographic transition, which is little confusing to me. I am really concerned with this class as I have a failing grade. Any and all of your assistance will be greatly appreciated. I really need your help with this assignment

Not all countries have moved through all four phases of the demographic transition. You are a consultant for a developing country that is not yet in phase IV of demographic transition.

In your own words, complete the following:

Define demographic transition.
Describe the 4 phases of demographic transition, including if the population is stable, growing, or declining in each. ·
According to demographers, what factors lead to a decline in the crude birth rates (CBR) and crude death rates (CDR) in the epidemiologic and fertility phases of the demographic transition? ·
Briefly describe three living conditions and/or environmental impacts in developed countries that have reached phase IV, and contrast them with these conditions or impacts in developing countries that remain in earlier phases. ·
Assuming that the demographic transition phase IV is a goal for developing countries, what two programs or initiatives would you suggest to assist them in progress toward this goal?
