      I find that the new edition of today's world has excellent notes!

      Are you doing industrial decline on Nord or the Sambre-muse?

      For example I did Nord for my case study.

      the reasons for industrial decline are as follows:

      1. the industries of coal, steel and textiles seriously declined after world war 2

      2. The coal industry declined because of the importance of oil and gas. They were used a lot more.

      3. the textile industry declined because of the competition in the far east e.g. Asia.. they were a lot cheaper

      4. steel industry declined due to foreign competition.

      etc...

      its impacts would be:

      high unemployment rates

      outward migration.

      by the 1990's the region was a brownfield site or a rust belt with derelict factories.

      could you tell me what year this question is??

      thanks and hope this helps!!
