Our teacher has said that we could. They could ask about the usefulness of the website and the information it presents. Also about improvements that could be made to improve the website
ive never seen any questions like that in past papers, because it says you should not you must look at them

Are we expected to remember a hell of a lot of statistics for this exam? Is it mostly just common sense and some background knowledge of Kenya and the Riders?

1. Desert in the North in uninhabitable
2. Relief rainfall in mountains to the SW means cropland is plentiful
3. Mobasa along the coast due to main port city, home of countries trade
4. All mainly southerly due to lower aridity
5. Population centred around mainly relief rainfall
6. Density of poverty map shows that no population in certain areas due to national parks

Mainly due to areas of cash crops that are subsidised by the government for economic export

1. Graph in item 1 showing average number of people reached after the riders increased to 450 from 60
2. Increase in vehicles to 77 shows a growing potential for management
3. Basic education in repairing and replacing enabling them to be less reliant on foreign intervention for new vehicles
4. Their bottom up grass roots intitative reaching the people that are hard to reach, lowering the urban/rural disparity
5. Staff issue by opening a training camp in Kisumu

No i understand that, i was implying that they wont ask you a question like, how could the extra research website be made more accessible.
And dont worry about me, ive read the Kenyan 2030 manifesto cover to cover and have extensive notes on corruption suits, telecoms industry, toyota pipeline initiative, Kenyan national airport, percentages comparison of all aspects of development factors from 1997 and 2014

1). Overuse of fuelwood at 70% national energy mix threatens the 3.8% forest cover
2). Destruction of woodland encroaches on national parks which are key for tourism economics
3. May reduce biodiversity again meaning tourism is affected
4). The 5 water towers of kenya (big forest regions) may be reduced
5). May create an advance in desertification

Question 2:

10 points include:

Key for tourism
Biodiversity to maintain MDG 7
Lead to increased pollution
May increase work in the informal sector therefore reducing government revenue
Will mean that they cannot be utilized by future generations
Safari parks and nature reserves are a big part of the future
Kenya has one of the largest reliance's on its natural envrionment of any african nattion
Key for tea and coffee it produces
Shows it is devoted to achieving MDG's
