    Ye sounds like your similar to me

    Intro
    Rising demand- rising population and middle class emerging in Asia
    Define food supply and sustainability
    rephrase the question
    Explain how you will use your diagrams to support your answer
    Introduce case studies

    Methodology
    Use key words such as objective/ subjective, authorative source... to get high marks

    Main
    Im splitting it into 2
    1. Contrast rural/ urban strategy
    2. Contrast bottom up/ top down approach

    With one economice, social and environment pro and con of each
    Also using subconclusions

    Conclusion
    Say which is best socially economically and environmentally then long term and short term
    Thank you so much for your reply, I really needed someone else's thought on the it. Just wondering when they ask global increased food supply in the pre-release they can't come into the exam and say how has food supply increased on a global scale, because local can be also used right!

    When you reach the main body of the report , do you go straight into the casestudies and through going through them you illustrate the sustainability etc. or do you write something before going into the source and if ys then what?

    Many thanks.

    What I and my teacher has suggested to do is describe the case study (how it increased food supply) then go into benefits and cost, linking it with sustainability a bit and then a sub-conclusion just focusing on the 3 aspects of sustainability or whatever you are using.

    Oh no my teacher is a bit useless, I came up with it yeah I have done a few. Example the one previous on sustainability and one that looks at whether sustainable strategies are important.

    My rural-ish case studies are:

    Green revolution, green revolution for Africa, money maker pumps by kick start (appropriate technology) and great green wall of China.

    Have you by chance have any aquaculture or urban cases studies? Because I'm kind of struggling. Also how many case studies are using in the exam? I was thinking 5.

    Im only using 4. You dont have time to do more than 4 in any detail. And if you start doing less of each case study you will lose your structure. As long as you can say how your case studies contrast (rural/ urban, large/ small scale, Top down/bottom up...) thats the main thing

    Case study1
    1 social, 1 economic and 1 environmental pro
    1 social, 1 economic and 1 environmental con... of each case study
    Making sure your points relate to increasing/ decreasing food supply not general points. Good point would be... chemical fertilizer causes eutrophication which kills fish stocks in lakes reducing food supply.
    Make sure to say after each point this increases/ decreases food supply. Then at the end of each section say these points suggest X case study is sustainable.

    Available (national production, import stock)
    Utilisation (knowledge and equipment to prepare food)

    is everyone only focusing on increasing food production and not on improving distribution or economic access?

    because i was thinking about doing 2 case studies on production (one top down, one bottom up), 2 on distribution (top down vs bottom up) and 2 on access (top down bottom up).. or have i got completely the wrong idea?
