Use textbook p70/71 to complete your case study on the Thar desert.

Be sure to explain how/why the desert provides opportunities for development. This means developing your points into linked sentences, showing how money can be made.
e.g. The Thar desert provides opportunities for development due to its mineral reserves. For example, there are reserves of gypsum, which is used in making plaster in the construction industry.
