Summary

About This Course

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.

Overview

In recent years climate change has held a lead position on the international development agenda and world political stage, making this course particularly relevant today.

You’ll cover a range of issues surrounding international and local dimensions, particularly the questions of mitigation and adaptation in resource-poor and vulnerable settings.

The course will address multiple dimensions of climate change and development including those mentioned earlier. You’ll also look at local responses to extreme events and disasters, and adaptation and mitigation impacts in Africa. There may also be the opportunity to participate in a United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Meeting (UNFCCC).
