PPUA 5100: Climate and Development
Lecture - 4 credits
- Serves as an introduction to climate change and development processes in developing countries.
- Exposes students to key debates in the fields of climate change and international development.
- Offers students an opportunity to learn about the approaches to climate adaptation, the relationship between adaptation and development, and concepts of resilience and transformation.
- Using a comparative case study approach, explores the importance of the local context; the intersections of politics, economics, and culture; ecology and human-environment relationships; and the role (and challenges) of finance and development assistance.
- Climate impacts threaten to reverse many of the development gains of the last century, and the most vulnerable are likely to be the most impacted by climate change.
- At the same time, opportunities exist to ensure climate-compatible development pathways.
- Cross-listed with INTL 5100.
