    could you let me know your structure and case studies?

    could you let me know your structure and case studies?
    Well it depends on the question because obviously I would structure it around that, especially with case studies but basically:

    Intro - quote, issue, defintions, framework and methodology
    Main discussion - at least one paragraph for each factor (political, socio-economic and environmental) with a case study to go in each. But If I have time I will try and do two case studies for each. Also I will include an evaluation of each issue at the end of each paragraph so probably rank it out of 10 on an impact scale
    Conclusion - say how all factors are complex and interlinking and that more research would be required and evaluate

    and thats it

    my case studies are
    Surplus: China and CAP
    Insecurity/famine: Vanuatu, the Kalahandi and North Korea

    one case study for each? dont you use two case studies on contrasting scale one for famine and one for surplus for each factor?

    Intro
    - Analysis
    - Regional Surplus Case Study - political
    - Regional Deficit Case Study - poltiical
    - Regional Mini Conclusion
    - National Surplus Case Study - environemntal
    - National Deficit Case Study - environmental
    - National Mini Conclusion
    - Local Surplus Case Study - socio-economic
    - Local Deficit Case Study socio-economic
    - Min Conclusion
    - Final Conclusion

    would this not be better?

    I mean I'm sure that would be better, but like I said, my geography teachers were no good and so I have no idea how I would be able to do it like that. The only way I can do it is the way I said, but I would stick to what you're doing. Like I said, depending on the question we may not need to use all case studies because if it did happen to be specifically about surplus, you would use mainly surplus and then go on to use maybe one or two from famine in order to contrast. But I don't know.

    Sorry I didnt want to come across as saying your structure is bad, I was genuinely asking if the one im following is good.

    How are you planning to use your food insecurity/famine case studies? If the question refers to just inequalities would you be contrasting famine/surplus for each factor?

    No it's fine, I didn't take it like that and I'm sorry if I came off as rude, I'm just a bit stressed as I need to get an A in order to have a future basically. The one you're following is definitely good!

    I think I would try to do a paragraph for each factor on food surplus first and then maybe do a couple of paragraphs after that like "In contrast some ares have famine...."

    But that probably isnt right and as an English student my structure should probably be better than it is

    based on what my teacher has said and an examiner report i read, it's apparently best to use case studies that have all three types of factors so you can show how they interlink and stuff like that??? but your structure sounds good to me, i know you didn't ask me but~

    im going to include that too e.g. CAP is political and due to environment

    I feel like it'll be something along the lines of:

    To what extent do socio-economic factors lead food supply inequalities ?

    but that may be too simple and the question might instead include the words food surplus/famine, idk

    Edit: last year we were told to research demographic factors, and then when it came to the actual exam they asked us about population growth in particular. I don't know whether they could do that again this year since they've asked us to research there different factors so it would be way too broad to just focus on one thing in particular?(i hope)

    On a global scale, on a regional scale, on an international scale, local scale, (you don't have to do every single type of scale but 2 or 3 should be okay.
    You have probably picked different scaled case studies without realising anyway, like I am using countries and then also Shanghai and New York on a local scale and then East Africa on a regional scale. (I didn't even mean to but it luckily worked out!)

    Oh cool I get it now. Yh I didn't structure it by scale and apparently doing it based on factor isn't as good because they overlap but I'm gonna outline this in my introduction saying it is very complex so other factors will be brought in
    I hope the q doesn't deviate from the main questions we used, wouldn't mind focus on socio economic
    But anyway good luck guys
