    What would be considered the best structure for a report like this? By large case study or in a factor by factor approach?

    In my current plan I have it structured like the latter, but with overlaps for example Bangladesh is in both socio-economic and environmental, Myanmar in environmental and political.

    Are these case studies and structure okay? Will all this data and knowledge be okay no matter what question they ask? Please help I'm worried

    Environmental(climate)- Haiti natural disasters and Somalia drought. Australia for surplus or mainland Europe where conditions are better
    Soils- the Sahel region and Soil types

    political support/gvt- CAP for surplus ,China communism Great Leap Forward for deficit. Malawi subsidy
    Conflict- Sudan war for deficit, for surplus vs deficit I did Oman vs Yemen

    Access to tech- green revolution discussed India and Africa, surplus used farm I visited on school trip
    Type of farming - gonna do later.
    Might discuss population and gender inequality aswell
