Presentación

This programme is offered either full and part time basis

If you work in international development and climate change policy and practice, this is the course to further your career.

You’ll address multiple dimensions including international policy frameworks on climate change such as urban climate change governance, adaptation and mitigation choices and pathways, linking climate change mitigation and development, carbon trade, climate change and poverty reduction, trade-offs and synergies, and local responses to extreme events and disasters. You’ll be taught by a team of internationally renowned natural scientists, policy analysts and economists. Your course material will draw upon existing and ongoing research and applied work through the School of International Development and the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research.

The interdisciplinary approach of the course ensures you’ll have the opportunity to collaborate with the School of Environmental Sciences through science-based modules on climate change.
