Flashcards in The Impact Of Population Growth And Economic Development In LEDCs Deck (9)
What has population growth and economic development led to in LEDCs?
1. An increased demand for resources
2. Pressure on people
3. Pressure on the environment
Explain how population growth and economic development impact on LEDCs.
These lead to increased consumption of resources, which increases demand for resources in LEDCs.
Explain how people becoming richer in LEDCs has impacted LEDCs.
This leads to increased consumption of resources, which increases demand for resources as rich people use more up.
How does increased demand for resources put pressure on the environment?
More trees have to be cut down because more fuel has to be burned.
What does increased deforestation lead to?
Increased deforestation leads to more and more habitats getting destroyed.
What does the increased burning of fuel lead to?
Increased carbon dioxide emissions, which further contributes to global warming.
The richer a country gets, what more does it need and why?
The richer a country gets, the more energy it needs in the industries because they have to produce more due to a growing population and increased consumption of resources.
How does increased deforestation and burning of fuel put pressure on people?
People increasingly see pressure on the environment through increased pollution, over-exploitation of natural resources and damage to ecosystems.
