Climate change is high on the international development agenda and world political stage. This course is designed to meet the career needs of people working in international development and climate change policy and practice and international development. It covers a range of issues surrounding international and local dimensions, particularly the questions of mitigation and adaptation in resource-poor and vulnerable settings. Taught by a team of internationally-renowned natural scientists, policy analysts and economists, the Masters course material draws upon existing and ongoing research and applied work through the School of International Development and the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research.
Its interdisciplinary approach ensures that students will also have the opportunity to collaborate with the School of Environmental Sciences through the science-based modules that focus on climate change. Please contact Dr Heike Schroeder( for specific inquiries about the course.
