AQA GCSE 9-1 Geography - Development - Just a Case of More Money?

This presentation looks at the various strategies that have been adopted by LEDCs to improve their prospects when it comes to economic development. It considers foreign investment (sugar and tourism in Mauritius), microfinance (Kenya) and debt relief (Bolivia) as ways of promoting economic progress. Students are asked to consider whether just 'throwing money' at the poor is ever going to work in the long term. There are a number of thought-provoking images and questions for group discussion as well as tasks for students to complete independently.
