With extraordinary footage shot during and after Bangladesh’s most recent cyclone, this resource looks at the cause, effects and management of tropical storms in an LEDC. It opens with footage of Cyclone Aila hitting the coast of Bangladesh. It then explores the social, economic and environmental impacts through first hand accounts of those affected. It re-visits the same area a year on and provides examples of how NGO’s and government agencies are working together to reduce both the short and long term impact of cyclones through better monitoring, predictions, preparation, disaster relief and poverty alleviation strategies. The resource also provides clear explanations and graphics of the physical cyclones. CONTENTS Introduction Causes Impacts Short Term Long Term Reducing Impacts Disaster Response Predictions & Preparations Strengthening Livelihoods Each resource includes a fantastic bank of teacher resources and student activities, designed and written by Bob Digby, educational consultant, GCSE principal examiner and author of numerous geography textbooks.
