Why are earthquake impacts different in LEDCs and MEDCs?

This is quite a big unit that deals with the big issues abiut where people live and why they might move from one place to another. We look at the consequences of population chanage and how they affect both LEDCs and MEDCs.

what are the differences in between LEDCs and MEDCs?

Part 3: Urbanisation in LEDCs and MEDCs

shows the locations of most LEDCs and MEDCs.

It’s been a number of years since I was indoctrinated by to no longer refer to LEDCs and MEDCs when referring to the development status of a country. Here’s why…

The standards of living between MEDCs and LEDCs change according to the resource consumption, energy usage and waste production, disparities should be expected between the ecological footprints of LEDCs and MEDCs. LEDCs have small ecological footprints as MEDCs have much greater rates of resource consumption. This is partly because MEDCs have higher incomes and the demands for energy resources is high. MEDCs consume a lot of resources as they are wasteful, they also have more waste and pollution. LEDCs are the opposite with lower consumption as people do not have too much to spend. The economy of the country forces them to recycle many resources, however they are developing and they’re ecological footprint is increasing. MEDCs use twice as much energy in their diet provided by animal products than LEDCs.

LEDCs and MEDCs
North and South MEDCs are countries which have a high standard of living, more industrialised and (usually) a large GDP. LEDCs are less industrialised countries with a low standard of living and (usually) a much lower GDP. MEDCs are countries which have a high standard of living, more industrialised and (usually) a large GDP. LEDCs are less industrialised countries with a low standard of living and (usually) a much lower GDP. The following map shows the locations of most LEDCs and MEDCs. Notice how most of the southern hemisphere is less developed, while most countries of the northern hemisphere are more developed. The following map shows the locations of most LEDCs and MEDCs. Notice how most of the southern hemisphere is less developed, while most countries of the northern hemisphere are more developed.
The map shows the locations of LEDCs and MEDCs. Most of the southern hemisphere is less developed, while countries in the northern hemisphere are more developed.

Tectonic Hazards in LEDCs and MEDCS

Population pyramids show the structure of a population by comparing relative numbers of people in different age groups. Population structures differ markedly between LEDCs and MEDCs. Demographic transition models show population change over time – and also show marked differences between LEDCs and MEDCs.

A lack of nutritious food in both LEDCs and MEDCs can severely lower life expectancy.

of population chanage and how they affect both ledcs and medcs

AIDS has played a major role in lowering the life expectancy of individuals in both LEDCs and MEDCs, though more so in LEDCs. In sub-saharan Africa, AIDS has lowered the life expectancy from 62 to 47 years. Nutrition, more specifically malnutrition, can lead to lowered life expectancies. A lack of nutritious food in both LEDCs and MEDCs can severely lower life expectancy. The quality and availability of health care is a significant factor in life expectancy too. In African countries and many other LEDCs, a very small percentage of the world’s health care workers are actually situated in the country. In Africa, 3% of the world’s health workers are present. The situation is far better in MEDCs, contributing towards MEDCs' higher life expectancy. In the Americas, 42% of the world’s health workers are situated there.

What is LEDCs and MEDCs

Many rural areas in both LEDCs and MEDCs attract tourists. This can benefit the local population, however, that is not always the case as the money spent by tourists is not always put back into the local economy to improve conditions and infrastructure. This is more critical in LEDCs as the areas are deprived to begin with.
