EVST19022 Climate Change: Global Challenges and Opportunities

Course details

Climate change is now widely recognized as one of the pre-eminent global issues facing the 21st Century. Its effects are already severe in Australia as well as in many other parts of the world. This course is intended to develop student understandings of the broad issue of climate change, with a focus on the multi-dimensional aspects (i.e., social, economic, political, technical, moral, as well as physical environment elements) of how we can avert, mitigate, and adapt to climate changes. It will develop systems analysis skills in formulating climate change problems and in developing management strategies and programs to deal with climate change problems. The course is intended to examine climate change and its implications as a range of opportunities as well as challenges. As such students will be encouraged to view problems posed by climate changes as opportunities for entrepreneurial and other kinds of ┐positive-response┐ engagements with these changes.
