International Development (Environment, Sustainability and Politics)

With international concern escalating as a result of climate change, food price increases and land grabbing, the environmental challenges facing those living in the developing world become ever more complex, multifaceted and immediate. This pathway will enable students to explore the antagonisms and opportunities between environmental sustainability, development and local/national interests in decision making processes. Power and politics at all levels, from local to global, influences environmental conditions and livelihood outcomes. The programme does not assume any prior knowledge of environment, development or politics. The knowledge and skills gained in the programme will equip graduates for jobs in international, national and local government and non-governmental organizations, think tanks and consultancies.
