There was a question in past paper 9696 CIE oct nov 2018 paper 31:
"Describe the problems of sustainably managing a stretch or stretches of coastline and evaluate the attempted solutions. [20]"

I have two interpretations for this:
1) Describe the problems at the coast e.g. fast erosion. And then evaluate the attempted solutions e.g. was beach nourishment effective and sustainable?
OR
2) Describe the problems arising from the sustainable management e.g. soft engineering is not very effective. And then evaluate attempted solutions to overcome the problems arising from management e.g. use both hard engineering and soft engineering.

What is correct? Can somebody please help me?

It is both. Describe the problems on the coast first, and then talk about solutions. Then evaluate the solutions. It is 20 marker so you have to do both and need a lot of specific evaluation. Hope that helps

So do I
1. Describe the problems on the coast e.g. fast erosion
2. Describe problems arising from the sustainable management e.g. soft engineering is not very effective to combat such fast erosion.
2. Evaluate attempted solutions to overcome the problems arising from management e.g. one soft engineering technique has been replaced with another new technique, and this was more effective. e.g. soft engineering and hard engineering were used together, and were effective, but hard engineering was unsustainable.
?
Thank you for your help
