My EPQ question is "How are we going to sustainably feed our rising world population with reference to climate change"
WHat should i include in my introduction?
Also i was planning to to do each paragraph by method (ie Urban farms) and then evaluating the effectiveness of that method, is that a good way of doing it.
I cant ask my supervisor, as he has left the school.

Heya, I'm going to put this in the Geography forum for you as you should get more responses there.

You should also check out the forum to see if there's any other threads there which might be helpful to you! http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=83

Introduction shouldn't be too long, perhaps about a third of a page. The first sentence should be broad and hook your reader into it. You should outline the issues you are writing about and mention why they are important and need to be addressed. Tell the reader which areas you have chosen to focus on and why (and if necessary, which you have had to leave out and why), and give a brief idea of how the report will be structured.

As for structure, it's up to you really. Whichever way you think will work best. I did mine on the use of micro-organisms to combat pollution, and structured it by technology (method). I gave an explanation of the method, then had a section of advantages and one of disadvantages for each technology. It worked well for me

Also, you need an advisor. If yours has left, then you should talk to your school about being given someone else to help you. Not only do you need one in order to complete all the paperwork, they're also invaluable when it comes to proof-reading and advice on issues like these.

I hope that helps, and good luck with it!
