|Institution||The University of Edinburgh View institution profile|
|Department||Business School View department profile|
Please note: this MSc was previously known as Carbon Finance, but has been renamed to better reflect the content of the programme.
The challenge of responding and adapting to climate change will drive trillions of dollars of new investment over the coming decades, with major changes required across the economy, in energy production and consumption, industry, buildings, transport, infrastructure, forests and agriculture.
Delivering this investment will require professionals with a deep understanding of the mechanisms that will regulate new financial flows like:
renewable investment funds
international climate funds
In addition, following the Paris Agreement, both developed and developing countries now have increased commitments for addressing climate change, which is driving increased demand for skills and knowledge in carbon and climate finance.
