Miscellaneous: Ie Does not fit into any English syllabus as of yet

Θ- Politics: Sorted alphabetically by country concerned, using UN official country names

Ζ- Power & Ζ- Rising Superpowers:

(I have no idea why these are listed as separate topics).

Γ- Resource security:

Β Δ- Rivers:

Β- Rural Environments:

Ζ- Security:

(I’m going to say this now, preemptively, so I don’t put it in posts. This is clearly nonsense. “Securing supply is a key issue, and there are potential environmental and political risks associated with exploiting new resources. Major players in the energy issue, such as TNCs and IGOs, are powerful and their role is increasingly important. The future of energy exploitation and supply is unclear. This is partly due to uncertainty about how long fossil fuel reserves will last, and partly due to the difficulties of finding acceptable and cost effective alternative energy sources. There is a wide range of potential future energy scenarios, each with its own supporters.” is clearly all contained within Energy. If this were corrected it would only be thinly veiled propaganda, let’s face it, given that the government is in charge of education, and therefore examinations. As such, I am using this for what it should be. Don’t reference this section for class! Instead: See: Ζ- Energy)

Ζ- Technology and Development & Ζ- Use of Technology:

(I am not sure why these are listed as separate topics)

Β- Tourism & Ζ- Consuming the Rural Landscape- Leisure and Tourism (I think this fits best here)

UK:

Β Γ- Urban Environments & Δ- World cities

Ζ- Water resources and Ζ- Water conflict & Ε- Water Insecurity

(I have no idea why these are listed separately as they are clearly the same topic. Their topic summaries even cover similar ideas, so they’re not bothering hiding this).

Ζ- Well being:

(I’m not sure how this is geography, rather than general studies).
