Course summary

**Overview**Train to make a difference on a global scale with a degree in international development and the environment. You’ll explore environmental issues in development such as climate change, water security, reconciling development needs with forest conservation, valuing biological diversity and sustainable natural resource management. At the same time you’ll discover the links between the environment, questions of policy, people’s livelihoods and poverty reduction. You’ll be on one of very few courses in the UK that integrates social and natural science, whilst taking a broad interdisciplinary approach to the study of development issues. You’ll graduate well prepared to work in one of the many development fields linked to the environment, sustainable natural resource management and rural livelihood improvement. **About This Course**On this course you’ll study the key themes in environmental and natural resource management. How do we understand and measure environmental change? What do we mean by good environmental governance? How can our understanding of these areas influence environment and development policy, human rights and other elements that collectively determine the well-being of individuals and communities? Your studies will concentrate on natural resources and environmental issues in development, such as climate change, water security, coastal ecosystems and forest conservation, biological diversity and sustainability. You’ll explore links between the environment, questions of policy, and people’s livelihoods and poverty reduction. You’ll learn about the current distribution of access to resources, services, opportunities, human rights and other elements that determine the well-being of individuals and communities. You’ll be taught by academic staff whose research is internationally renowned. We’re actively involved in research across the globe, working with many national and international development agencies. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
