China's Climate

China's Climate

As China is such a large country it’s not surprising to find that the climate varies from place to place and that these variations have different impacts of people’s lives. These worksheets help students to understand climate graphs, how to read ad draw them. They also give them a chance to develop their own graph and peer mark eachothers ideas with supporting comments.

Japan (2011) and Haiti (2010) tectonic activity and hazards case studies, MEDC and LEDC comparison

Japan (2011) and Haiti (2010) tectonic activity and hazards case studies, MEDC and LEDC comparison

Guided by the 2016 A-level Geography specifications, this comprehensive teaching resource juxtaposes vulnerability, risk, coping capacity, impact and the disaster management cycle in the two disaster hotspots Haiti and Japan. The Haiti earthquake (2010) and the Tōhoku, Japan earthquake and tsunamis (2011) demonstrate how impact, path and duration of recovery depend on country-specific factors. While Japan was underprepared for the earthquakes and tsunamis, Haiti was entirely unprepared. Though unleashed by natural seismic events, the tragic death toll in Haiti and the Fukushima-Daiichi Nuclear disaster in Japan could both be considered man-made. Throughout the "Tectonic activity and hazards" series, the relationship between disaster and level of development is explored, drawing on the work of the international medical relief organisation Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF). Teachers are encouraged to review and select content and activities to best match their students’ needs. Haiti: deadly earthquake · Part I: Anatomy of an earthquake, immediate impacts, and physical and human factors · Part II: Emergency relief phase of disaster response · Part III: Protracted emergency relief phase, shelter, water and sanitation, cholera, and violence · Part IV: Rehabilitation, reconstruction, and outlook · Part V: Watershed moment for GIS, social media, crowd-sourced mapping in disaster response, Missing Maps Japan: once-in-a-century earthquake and tsunami · Part I: Disaster Risk Reduction global policies, resilience, and Japan country and natural hazard profile · Part II: Earthquake preparedness and mitigation in Japan · Part III: How effective were disaster preparation and mitigation in the face of the Tōhoku triple disaster in 2011? Comparison of case studies In the PowerPoint resource, Haiti earthquake (2010) and the Tōhoku, Japan earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster (2011) demonstrate how impacts, path and duration of recovery depend on country-specific factors and level of development. · Part I: disaster hotspots, World Risk Report, urban risk, perception, preparedness and insurance · Part II: seismic events and their human and economic impact compared · Part III: humanitarian relief, rehabilitation, reconstruction, MSF response, and long-term impacts
