    if there was an 8 marker on landforms associated with tectonic activity, would it ask you to describe the formation of a few of them or just 1 because i dont know enough detail on just one?
    landforms associated with tectonic activity can be any landform in plate tectonics right? e.g. fold mountain so im guessing they wont ask you for 1 but they'll ask you for formation of landforms associated with a certain plate margin e.g. destructive (fold mountains, deep sea trench, volcano, island arcs)

    Ok, what are the best examples for use of re-urbanisation? Could you use london docklands and gentrification etc??

    Also causes and impacts of de centralisation has not come up since 2009 (new spec)
    My case study for reurbanisation is London dock lands - urban development corporation and enterprise zones and how this stimulates reurbanisation

    Why was it necessary? - tilsbury ports outcompeted London ports so area began to decline
    How?
    1.7 billion public investment
    7.7 billion private investment
    440 ha land sold
    770 ha derelict land revered
    24,000 homes developed
    136km^2 land sold for commercial use
    86,000 jobs
    94 awards for architecture
    Occurred from 1981-1996
    Employment rapidly increased
    Funding led to development of 11 primary schools, 2 secondary schools and 3 post 16 colleges
    Funding help refurbish 5 health centres

    'Discuss the impact of newly industrialised countries (NICs) on the global economy' (10 marks) - How would you go about answering this question?
    these are the points that i have come up with...
    NICs have an abundance of cheap labour and less stringent h&s restrictions so offshoring and outsourcing has increased to them meaning that there's cheaper products and more variety of goods for consumers worldwide. but it's led to increased unemployment in MEDCs so the more developed economies gain less tax etc.
    NICs such as China have invested in LDCs. they invested more that 21 bill into helping nigeria develop infrastructure which has increased employment opportunities in the area etc.
    South Korea is home to big brands such as Samsung which are recognised globally.
    are my points too simple?

    Sustainable communities is BEDZED

    With regards to shanty towns, I think they'll ask what they are, where they are, how they occur (rapid urban sprawl) and how they're being managed e.g. In rochina in Rio they're using self help schemes and in dharavi the area for the promotion of resource centres is helping to develop the area I.e. 2000 new flats with 14 foot ceilings with large windows, provide circulation and reduce need for electricity

    In dharavi, the government is also helping with plans to demolish the shanty town and develop 7 story tenable flats

    Trenches/ island arcs was 2014
    And landforms associated with constructive was last year... So I doubt it will be another landform

    Yeah I'd say so. I personally have learnt a specific community called BEDZED in the London borough of Sutton, it's basically environmentally friendly housing developed by the architect bill dunster and Peabody trust

    I have other case studies for waste and transport management, but it seems no one has learnt a community specifically

    Definitely, if you explain how the development of industry etc has stimulated reurbanisation that's fine
