Valerie Bodden K. (10-0014) Professor Torres Dominican History November 29, 2010 1. What is a territorial division? Why is it important? A territorial division is the separation of a territory into smaller enclaves. Territorial divisions are important because they help governments manage the population better, in terms of economic decisions, resources, population control and immigration regulation. 2. What is the current territorial division? The Dominican Republic is divided into 31 Provinces and 4 Municipalities. 3. Explain what each decree related to territorial division establishes: a. 2465 of May 15th 1981 : divided the island in regions and sub regions, but based on their climate. b. 685-00 of September 1st 2000: established the political centers of the country. c. 710-04 of July 30 2004: establishes the rural and urban regions. 4.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
