" the hazards presented by seismic and volcanic events have the greatest impact on the worlds poorest people" to what extent do you agree

You need to spend 5 mins planning before you start writing. Read the statement, it is saying that poorer people (so people in LIDCs) suffer the worst. Think of a few case studies that relate to this. You need to think critically and wonder if thats actually true..people in developed countries are still affected by volcanic events, so think of your case studies for volcanic events in developed countries. That should be where you go from.

As you write the essay make your point explicitly clear, For example: The hazards presented by seismic and volcanic events are destructive no matter where they take place. In LIDCs such as ..... the most devastating impacts are secondary impacts e.g. few health facilities so injured people suffer for longer because of the eruption, weak infrastructure is destroyed so people have no where to live. You then need to compare that to developed countries: so developed countries may not have the same consequences but the impact of these consequences is just as valid, e.g. because of developed cities having so many high rise structures concentrated in urban areas, this poses danger for the people who work in cities. Destruction of these buildings affects employment, transport, etc..do you see how both LIDCs and ACs have different impacts but poorer people don't necessarily suffer the greatest?

Hope this helps
