The tremendous impact of climate change and climate variability on our natural and build environment ultimately links the climate change debate to the concept of climate resilient development and sustainable use of resources. The associated policy making processes are underpinned by our scientific understandings of the natural and social world. This course bridges the link between scientific understanding of climate change and sustainability, and the sustainable development goals and objectives of climate resilience development. It provides insight into contemporary policy making processes and discusses successful examples.
This course is focused on climate resilient development, the sustainable development goals and policy communicating international, and national climate change agreements. It reviews processes such as the Framework Convention on Climate Change (FCCC) leading to the Paris Agreement, Agenda 2030, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) providing contemporary, multidisciplinary perspectives of progress towards a more equitable, and sustainable future.
