    Does anyone know of any social factors that may affect urban land use?

    Also, any decent case studies showing the problem of waste management in urban areas? I have Curitiba for sustainable management but not a case study specifically for problems....
    I'm using Mumbai for the waste issues. Talking about slums, ineffective legislation and problems for people who live near the landfill sites. Hope that helps!

    Predictions from head of Geography at my school. He is very good at making predictions and hardly makes mistakes. Also human and physical are written by two sets of different people who don't confer about what in either paper so like peoples with growth of tourism could come up or exploitation of energy.
    for urban short answer questions eh reckons it will be problems/management of traffic congestion. look at Curitiba London, Mexico city or Paris. Has not come up in a while. also believes if that does not come up it will be a question on mangagemtn of air pollution. He recons there ill be a question on economic factors affecting land use or environmental factors effecting land use ( physical factors)
    for tourism and energy he believes a question on energy could be about sustainable management of energy It is highly like that the 9 marker could be political factors influence growth of tourism or supply of energy or relationship between economic development and tourism/energy.
    He believes the 25 maker will probably be problems with growth of tourism/exploitation of energy. or opportunities created by growth of tourism or exploitation of energy.

    Hope this helps/

    That would be a great tourism essay!!!!!

    Can anyone help with "With reference to one or more examples, explain the increasing use of renewable energy" - 9 Marks

    explain the use would mean why there is an increasing use and the effects of renewable energy. so it may be increasing due to:
    - rising prices of nonrenewable energy, meaning that governments are forced to consider renewable options
    - renewable options are becoming cheaper
    - government are investing more into renewable energy development and hence are able to use it more
    - nonrenewable resources may be running out, forcing countries to consider renewable sources
    - high potential for a particular renewable energy source such as high tidal range, high wind power, long hours of sun etc

    For social factors, I am using ethnicity and wealth. Ethnicity effects land use pattern as it may lead to cultural segregation as those of the same race may cluster and hence the amenities they need will to cluster in that area (e.g. Ealing Southall, London which is the UK's largest residential area of British Asians). Wealth of course affects land use as the higher the income, the higher the disposable income and therefore the type of land use that surrounds these people. Those in secondary industry will live in low class residential areas with poor amenities (e.g. Newham, London), and vice versa (eg. Kensington, London).

    No problem!! Social factors have the least amount of factors (according to my notes anyway), so fingers crossed it's only a six marker and not a nine!

    Gosh, if it came up as a 9 marker I'd definitely choose another section to do for the short answer I have a feeling it would be a shorter answer though, since I've seen 6 mark questions for economic, environmental and political, but somehow not social!

    Hope so! Relying a lot on the human paper as my physical paper didn't go as well as I had hoped!

    Gosh, yeah I heard that paper was insanely difficult! I'm in Y13 and a few of my friends did a retake and came out of it looking so shellshocked :eek: especially as our school didn't teach us contrasting case studies!

    Hopefully the human paper will be easier to make up for it, though maybe OCR have universally decided to be awful this year

    Thank you! could you use this for " explain how renewable energy is playing an increasing part in the management of energy supplies" also? again, a 9 marker?

    Probably not as it says management. Maybe instead talk about the effects of nonrenewable energy and the positives of renewable energy and why it is better to use. Then go on to say as a result of better impacts (environmentally mostly) the government are now investing more money into renewable energy sources.

    Also, mention the physical factors that lead to the development of more renewable resources so again, wind, tidal range, solar energy etc.
    I just looked at the mark scheme and a small example on there is "Offshore wind farms are playing an increasingpart in the UK’s energy mix as the UK’ssurrounding seas are prone to strongpersistent winds so wind energy is seen as anappropriate source of energy."
