On this International Development and the Environment with a Year Abroad programme offered by University of East Anglia you’ll study the key themes in environmental and natural resource management. How do we understand and measure environmental change? What do we mean by good environmental governance? How can our understanding of these areas influence environment and development policy, human rights and other elements that collectively determine the well-being of individuals and communities?
Your studies will concentrate on natural resources and environmental issues in development, such as climate change, water security, coastal ecosystems and forest conservation, biological diversity and sustainability.
You’ll explore links between the environment, questions of policy, and people’s livelihoods and poverty reduction. You’ll learn about the current distribution of access to resources, services, opportunities, human rights and other elements that determine the well-being of individuals and communities.
You’ll be taught by academic staff whose research is internationally renowned. We’re actively involved in research across the globe, working with many national and international development agencies.
