Climate change has far-reaching economic and social implications. This programme examines the social scientific drivers, and consequences, of climate change and associated policy debates. It focuses on the interface between climate change and development, with particular attention paid to the perspective of ecological economics, which integrates social and economic perspectives with insights from the natural science.

What the programme offers: 

The world faces serious and rapidly evolving environmental challenges on a number of fronts and at many levels. Simultaneously, the development of an economically fairer and socio-politically more just world remain paramount. This programme provides analytically rigorous, stimulating and balanced perspectives of the inter-relations between environment and development at the global, regional, national and local levels.

Students learn to critically examine how these challenges have been interpreted and are being addressed by academics, international agencies, government-level policy-makers, nongovernment development actors and of course, 'ordinary' people around the world.
