Overview

The impacts of climate change on global development are increasingly visible to the naked eye, and they are alarming.

The degree in Climate Change and Global Development draws on UEA’s pioneering track record in climate science and global development. Whether exploring the science of climate change with simple climate models, investigating the links between adaptation and the Sustainable Development Goals, or understanding the implications of mitigation choices on poverty, the MSc in Climate Change and Global Development will enable you to gain high-level analytical skills and knowledge to equip you for your chosen career path.
