The Postgraduate Diploma in Climate Change and Development will give you a thorough grounding in how current development models produce environmental problems, like climate change, which then threaten the objectives of development.

Through an interdisciplinary perspective which surveys, theoretically and empirically, the science of climate change, adaptation and mitigation, you will acquire the knowledge and analytical skills required for critically engaging with and changing development policy and practice.

Teaching and Learning

Teaching & Learning

The Climate Change and Development programmes are designed to assist both existing professionals working within environment and development spheres and people moving into these fields. For existing professionals, the programme provides the opportunity to upgrade and update their expertise, and to reflect systematically and in depth on their accumulated experience in the light of up-to-date theory and literature.

It is anticipated that most graduates of this programme will find work in:

  • government ministries and other public sector organisations concerned with policy analysis and implementation for disaster risk reduction, climate and broader environmental issues, local, and national climate change strategies, energy and development as well as poverty reduction
  • international and non-governmental organisations working across countries and regions on disaster risk reduction, climate and broader environmental issues, international climate change conventions and negotiations, energy and development, as well as poverty reduction
  • consultancies and development projects involved in research and policy design around disaster risk reduction, climate and broader environmental issues, international climate change conventions and negotiations, energy and development, as well as poverty reduction
