School of International Development, University of East Anglia (DEV) Climate change and land use are closely related: biosphere carbon represents a significant proportion of total GHG emissions, and land use plays a major role in sequestration, thereby mitigating climate change. Whilst land use change, from forests to agriculture and pasture, has thus been a major contributor to GHG emissions, it has played an important role in improving food society and contributing to economic development. In the face of an urgent need to both mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and improve societal resilience to climate change, how can land use be best governed? The area is rapidly evolving, and becoming ever more complex. On this course you’ll be given an introduction to the key issues and sources, to allow you to be more effective in professional engagement with the challenges.
