This course will introduce you to the concept of climate change. Throughout history, people and societies have responded to and coped with changes in climate with varying degrees of success. We will look at the causes of climate change, scenarios of reducing the causes (mitigation) and responding to the effects (adaptation).
We will analyse the human influence such as human-induced greenhouse gas emissions and look at various case studies how to manage climate change, mitigation and adaptation strategies as well as the Paris Agreement.

By the end of the course, you will have the opportunity to:
