I just got assigned to do this 8 marker question for Geography but I don’t really understand how to write it out and what to include.
The question is:
‘Assess the reasons why population and industrialisation have increased the demand for resources.’

Does anyone know how to help or what to include?

You could include things like how a population increase will result in more resource demand as there will be a higher number of people needing things like gas and electricity, or how an increase means more people in jobs means more cars, more fuel for those cars, more resources used in building the cars, etc.

As for industrialisation, the advent of the modern factory and production line means that things being produced en masse will require many more resources than were previously needed as things were being produced much quicker and on a much larger scale. Factories need lots of these resources to power their massive buildings and the machinery inside them, so resource demand will be increased.

I'm in no way a geography expert and these are just a few things that came off the top of my head, so please just take them as ideas and not gospel!
