School of International Development, University of East Anglia (DEV) Climate change has profound implications for developing countries. The purpose of this short course is to equip non-specialists with a broad understanding of what climate change may mean for low-income populations. It will examine the scope and prospects for adapting to change and contributing to emissions reduction and NDC implementation in the context of development issues and poverty reduction. The course is designed to equip participants with a deeper awareness of the ideas, opportunities and trade-offs represented by adaptation and mitigation; an awareness that is increasingly needed if effective action on climate change is to be achieved. It does not set out to provide a practical ‘toolkit’ guide for policy and practice but participants leave the course having been exposed to state-of-the-art knowledge to help develop their skills in this field.
