I have a exam question and I need help with it 'Using examples examine the extent to which development is the main factor in influencing the severity of natural disasters?''

I can think of three ways.

1. Growing world population means that NDs are more severe because they often affect people in places they wouldnt previously have been . Population explosions mean people move to land you wouldnt normally choose to live on i.e on flood plains.

2. Mans activity can increase natural disaster and make them worse. Im thinking of logging and lots of landslides in the developing world. Just have a look on the BBC site for examples.

3. Tou might also consider global warming ( perhaps thats what the essay is about tbh).
