1Learning Objective: To know how a country’s level of development can affect the impact of earthquakesTitle: How does development affect the level of impact of earthquakes
2Questions to consider1. How can we work out how developed a country is? How can we tell if it is an More Economically Developed Country (MEDC) or a Less Economically Developed Country (LEDC)?What statistics can we used to decide whether a country is an LEDC or MEDC?
3ActivityUse the development statistics to work out what level of development each country is at. Write either LEDC or MEDC into the correct place.Explain how you decided whether the country was an LEDC/MEDC.Is there a relationship between the level of development a country is at and the impact of earthquakes? – share your findingsWhy do you think this relationship exists? Go into as much detail as you can and give reasons for the points you make.
4ExtensionWrite a report to the United Nations explaining the requirements of LEDCs to cope with earthquakes.Points to consider:What should the Governments do to reduce the impacts of earthquakes?What can the population do to reduce the impact of earthquakes?What can other countries do to help reduce the impact of earthquakes?
