I'm doing a case study for a tectonic event in a LEDC, I have one about an earthquake in Turkey but don't know whether it's LEDC.

Or if it's a NIC/MEDC now, was Turkey a LEDC in 2011? Please give reasons

Thanks

Very tricky. I wouldn't call at MEDC or an LEDC. It's similar to china/india/eastern europe in terms of classification. It depends on your exam, if it's for GCSE it will probably be allright, if it's for something more advanced it would be best to check with your teacher or go for an easier option. I know for GCSE the sichuan earthquake in China is classed as a LEDC earthquake.

LEDC and MEDC descriptors have always been vague and difficult to define, such that they are pretty much out of favour in academia today. However, Turkey is in the top 20 largest economies worldwide, is a member of G20, and is growing very rapidly economically - you could call it a 'developing economy' in more modern terminology, but I wouldn't call it an LEDC.

It's worth checking to see what your teacher thinks, as I don't know how strict the spec. is at GCSE.

If you're looking for a more clear-cut LEDC example, you could use the 2010 Haiti earthquake
