How can the resource be used?

Listen at your leisure on the bus, while you tidy your room or while you work. Teachers - you might even want to play this to students a bit at a time, before gently (read: enthusiastically) encouraging your students to have a read.

How does the resource link to the curriculum?

Lotanna's use of econometric tools to investigate the impact of climate change on the world and Sub-Saharan Africa highlights the importance of quantitative methods in economics. A-level students are required to have a good understanding of statistical methods and data analysis, which are key components of econometric analysis.
