Environment and Development
This programme is designed to equip graduates with an analytically rigorous but broadly basedunderstanding of the relations between environment and development at the global, national and local levels. It provides students with an opportunity to explore the major economic, political and social issues in policy debates, including international environmental accords, and the opportunities and constraints in national and local planning of the development and environment interface. The programme brings a critical but constructive approach to academic writing on environmental and development issues as well as to treatments of the subject in the popular press and campaigning literature. Units studied cover resource development and conservation, policy contexts of environment and development, and environment and society, with an opportunity to take options in subjects ranging from the theory of development to environmental economics.
