International Environmental Management

Many of our environmental problems are transboundary and require international cooperation for their mitigation or solution.

The course describes the role of scientific knowledge and how scientific uncertainty and ignorance are handled in relation to environmental policy development. Examples of international environmental issues covered in the course are anthropogenic climate change, regional transboundary air pollution, the ozone hole, international fisheries and environmental security. Special attention is given to the role of EU in European and national environmental regulation.

The course is part of Master's Programme in Environmental Management and Physical Planning but can also be read as a separate course.
