    The use and management of resources is a key issue for Geography and today’s world. Consumption patterns highlight stark inequalities between regions, countries and groups of people. Many resources are finite, and rising consumption means that difficult decisions over the use of resources will have to be taken more frequently. There are six compulsory topics:
  • Topic 1: Energy security Topic 2: Water conflicts Topic 3: Biodiversity under threat Topic 4: Superpower geographies Topic 5: Bridging the development gap Topic 6: The technological fix?
  • Topic 1: Energy security
  • Topic 2: Water conflicts South Africa's demand for freshwater will exceed its supply by 2025 1.1 billion people lack access to clean water 2.6 billion people lack access to basic sanitation
  • Topic 3: Biodiversity under threat
  • Topic 4: Superpower geographies
  • Topic 5: Bridging the development gap
  • Topic 6: The technological fix?
  • 4. Researching Global futures
