1 Human Environment Interaction and Levels of Development
1. In East and Southeast Asia people have to modify and __________to the environment. 2. Modifications and adaptations are directly related to a country’s __________ development. 3. The more _________ an area the more advanced their adaptations/modifications. 4. The less developed areas have ______ advanced adaptations and modifications. Word Bank: Adapt Less Political Economic Social More Developing Developed

2 Intro Another problem in E/SE Asia is a lack of arable land.
Arable land  land suitable for farming HEI – they adapt to a lack of arable land…here’s how Directions: - On your HEI page, draw a line underneath yesterday’s notes. - Title it Lack of Arable Land - Record the first two bullets as the intro.

3 Lack of Arable Land terraced farming- farming on ledges, on the side of the hill. Planting on slopes allows otherwise unproductive land to be use for farming.

4 Lack of Arable Land Both Developed and developing nations use terraced farming Developing areas - use traditional farming techniques, little or no machinery.

5 Lack of Arable Land Land Reclamation-bringing land damaged by natural or human causes back into use for farming Developed nations only – too expensive

6 Lack of Arable Land Heilongjiang Land Reclamation Project (China) – increasing farmland on land that was once swamp or semi-arid Why: Crucial to ensuring China's food security Uses the most advanced farming techniques and machines in the world

7 Heilongjiang Land Reclamation Project
The project would develop some 200,000 ha of virgin land in Heilongjiang Province for the production of food grains and soybean. Principal features of the project would be drainage works; larger and more modern agricultural machinery for full mechanization of farming operations; construction equipment; and provision of roads, housing and supporting infrastructure. Training in equipment operation and maintenance and in construction techniques would be provided together with technical assistance (78 man-months of consultant services) in the fields of planning, training, and seed production. The project would produce more than 440,000 tons of grain and soybean annually, and thereby help reduce China's food grain deficit. It would serve as a large-scale trial and demonstration of techniques applicable to an additional 470,000 ha of uncultivated land and some 2 million ha now cultivated by state farms in Heilongjiang. From: Questions: 1. Why did they implement the project? 2. What was required to complete the project? 3. Who owns the land?

8 Summary Questions. What are problems that exist in East and Southeast Asia’s environment? How have people in East and Southeast Asia modified or adapted to their environment? How does economic development affect how the people of East and Southeast Asia are able to modify or adapt to their environment?
