You will be given an OS map to conduct a feasibility study and produce an energy proposal for the map’s area. State what types of renewable energy would be suitable for the region, or what mix of these could be used, and the site where these could be employed.
Your product will be a hand drawn, annotated map on poster paper.
Your maps must include:
Scale (cannot be the same as on your map)
Elevation where relevant
Main physical features
Reference to map evidence
Information on the region
Climate and meteorological trends
Handwritten annotations of site for each type of renewable energy usage with:
Type of energy
Expected energy production
Statistics to support your choice
Short explanation of your decision
Graphs if necessary
Physical features that guided your decision
Any other relevant information that can support your answer.
Once you find your person or group, take a screenshot of their profile and save their page, and do some further research on the country or region they come from:
find information about their level of development and standard of living ( HDI- Fertility rate, GNP, disease etc )
Issues in their area or country ( government stability, economy, debt, war etc ) which might affect their level of development.
Main economic activities and growth rate
Climate, resources and physical nature of the country
Any other information that will help you with your decision
You will create a 1 page document and/or 3 minute presentation recommending strategies that will help improve the standard of living and break the cycle of poverty of the community represented by an individual
You need to suggest the strategies we have discussed in class: AID, FDI, Fair Trade, Debt Relief, Market and Trade Access, Government policy, Remittances, as well as micro-financing through Kiva. If you find any other strategy make sure to ask your teacher first.
You also need to clearly explain how your ideas will break the cycle of poverty of your recipient’s community
All of your decisions must be supported with statistical and anecdotal evidence.
