• Changing urban environments in LEDCs and MEDCs

Description: A detailed case study of the Bangladesh Floods in 2007 comparing both human and physical causes as well as economic, social and environmental impacts. Followed by an Essay comparing the differences in causes in flooding in LEDCs and MEDCs

Urbanization in LEDCs and MEDCs by Wan Teng Lee on Prezi

2) Identify the differences in the patterns of urban structures in cities of LEDCs and MEDCs.

The map shows the locations of LEDCs and MEDCs.

The course follows the exam board OCR B specification. 4 themes will be studies over a 2.5 year course; the content of which may be looked at in a variety of levels – globally, nationally and locally. Also, examples may be taken from the UK or other countries including LEDCs and MEDCs.

Tectonic Hazards in LEDCs and MEDCS - Tectonic Hazards

- Classify industries into primary, secondary and tertiary.
- Describe and explain how the proportions employed in primary, secondary and tertiary industries differ in LEDCs and MEDCs and may change with time and level of development.
- Describe and identify the influence of inputs on the processes and outputs (products and waste) of industrial systems.
- Describe and explain the factors influencing the distribution and location of high technology industries and one other manufacturing/ processing industry. Distribution should be studied on a global/ national scale. Study should also be made of particular zones and/or industrial plants with respect to locational and siting factors.

What are LEDCs and MEDCS?
A lack of nutritious food in both LEDCs and MEDCs can severely lower life expectancy.

Birth rate and Death rate in LEDCs and MEDCs 1

Population change can cause a range of social, economic, environmental and political implications on countries. These problems can be very different between LEDCs and MEDCs. Poorer countries often have a very high birth rate and their problem is trying to provide for many young and growing populations resulting from many years of population growth. In MEDCs they are having to cope with ageing populations and a reduction in the number of working population.

The difference between poverty in LEDCS and MEDCS is in poorer countries they except poverty as.

Expedition Earth: The effects of flooding in LEDCs and MEDCs

The standards of living between MEDCs and LEDCs change according to the resource consumption, energy usage and waste production, disparities should be expected between the ecological footprints of LEDCs and MEDCs. LEDCs have small ecological footprints as MEDCs have much greater rates of resource consumption. This is partly because MEDCs have higher incomes and the demands for energy resources is high. MEDCs consume a lot of resources as they are wasteful, they also have more waste and pollution. LEDCs are the opposite with lower consumption as people do not have too much to spend. The economy of the country forces them to recycle many resources, however they are developing and they’re ecological footprint is increasing. MEDCs use twice as much energy in their diet provided by animal products than LEDCs.
