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 MSc in Climate Change and International Development from University of East Anglia 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).
A career in international development can take you in all kinds of directions such as international organisations, governmental and non-governmental organisations, local governments, private sector and PhD programmes.
Previous graduates have gone on to work for the British High Commission in Ghana, UNITAR in Japan, the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, and PhD studies in related fields.
