That Blue Square Thing - Geography Revision

Unit 2 Outline - LEDC Cities

WARNING! These pages are now very old. They were last updated in 2008 and the content applies to an old version of any geography syllabus currently active in the UK.
I've kept them here because there might be something useful for someone and the general marking principles aren't all that different. But be aware that it's old and out of date (the stuff on the Google Earth page in particular may not work at all)

LEDC Cities are growing rapidly - due to both migration from rural areas and high birth rates. These are the largest cities in the world today. As a result they face large problems - made worse by the fact that they are generally too poor to manage the problems effectively.
