Introduce the class to the data collected by the researchers for their report. Students should find a partner and have a good look at the data, then make at least three recommendations to the Taiwanese Government about how they should respond to future typhoons. For each recommendation, explain why it is needed by linking to the relevant data from the researchers.
You will need to refer back to the previous material, for example the actual events of the Xioalin landslide and the fact that the area is not a National Park. You might also want to think about climate change and how the occurrence of tropical storms is increasing.
The three boxed texts are extracts from the report.
Read the actual recommendations from the report to students. Consider your own recommendations and compare how well you did. Do your own ideas match those of the research team?
