Comparing the effects of natural
disasters on MEDCs and LEDCs
To compare the effects of volcanic eruptions and
earthquakes of TWO places you have studied
Task: Complete the table below using the case studies you have
investigated for BOTH volcanic eruptions and earthquakes
Name of
event/country/
LEDC/MEDC
Short term effects
Long term effects
Long term responses
Short term responses
Task: Compare!
1) How do the effects of a earthquake vary
between a MEDC and an LEDC?
2) How do the effects of a volcanic eruption
vary between a MEDC and an LEDC?
3) Overall what are the differences/similarities
between the effects and responses in an
MEDC and an LEDC after a natural disaster?
