Why Countries Are Landlocked + Canals

11341 ratings | 1196711 views
Why are some countries landlocked? In the case of Bolivia its because they lost a war with Chile. Ethiopia and Serbia granted independence to the parts of their countries that had a coast. Some countries like uzbekistan, are so far inland that they are doubly landlocked, which means they are both landlocked and completely surrounded by other landlocked countries. When a country is landlocked it can be difficult for them to trade, and they often have to rely on their neighbours. In Europe, the danube river lets many landlocked countries have some access to the black sea. As well, many canals exist which lets small ships travel deep inland, providing some of the benefits of having a coast. Some countries may look landlocked, but when viewed closely you can see they have tiny coasts. You can watch this video I made which explores the weird borders in those situations: https://youtu.be/elybAzSVSHc

Hello everybody! There are a lot of new people now. Thanks everyone for subscribing! You may have heard that Youtube has been a bit unreliable lately. Though I think its been unreliable in my favour given that the channel only had about 500 subscribers a month ago. Still its probably best if there is a way for you to see new uploads without having to rely on youtube. The best way to do this is with an email list, so if you want you can follow this link to sign up for the list: http://eepurl.com/csi__f Also if you prefer you can use the subreddit, which has the added benefit of a comment section: https://www.reddit.com/r/VanDeGraph/

TERMINATOR103 Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, and Turkmenistan are landlocked, because they have a coast off the Caspian Sea, but the Caspian Sea is an inland sea and has no connection to the ocean.
Philippines and Indonesia have sea in them (also called as archipelago) , which means these countries are too lucky lmao (leave hate comment)
