(a) Country X is a least-developed country with low GDP but an abundance of hydropower resources. Its neighbour, Country Z, is an industrialized nation with high GDP, a rapidly growing population and dwindling energy resources. Country Z is keen to purchase electricity from Country X, promising to fund the necessary infrastructure (large dams, power plants and transmission network) to harness Country X's hydropower and transmit the power produced to their country. Country Z has stated that the construction of this infrastructure would bring additional income to Country Z. Do you agree with Country Z's statement? Justify you opinion. Assess other possible impacts this proposal might have on Country X's sustainable development, providing at least ONE (1) impact for each sustainable development element.
If I understand correctly, from the map of plate boundaries and direction of the plate's movement in my book, seismic activity is associated with collisional plate boundary but there is not much explanation on this beyond this. Can someone please explain more on this? Is the level of activity less than that at a conservative margin since the plates are moving less rapidly or is there actually more activity due to the extreme pressure?
Or is it simply enough to know that they're related at A level?
