We see the consequences of climate change: an increase in extreme weather events, the loss of habitable land, growing concerns about food security, species loss, and threats to biodiversity.

International agreements aim to keep global warming below a 2 degree threshold to prevent even more repercussions. Deciding how we go about reducing our emissions—and how we adapt to changes that have already happened—requires scientists and policy-makers with a broad understanding of both physical sciences and human systems.

This cross-disciplinary programme will give you the necessary combination of policy and science knowledge to address the problems of climate change.
