This course challenges you to consider how one might lift societies out of poverty while also mitigating greenhouse gas emissions. We explore the inherent complexity of developing country governments wanting to grow their economies in a climate friendly way. You will be introduced to an approach with which to address this challenge. The approach consists of a facilitated process whereby academic researchers and high-level influential actors within society co-produce knowledge. You will track this process in four Latin American countries - Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Peru, and South Africa. You will hear from various professionals about their contexts and the different challenges and opportunities the process includes.

來自CLIMATE CHANGE MITIGATION IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES的熱門評論
It was a very interesting course with good lecturers. Learned alot as regards climate change mitigation. I also like how they analysed the situations for various regions.
very interestng in the first weeks, less so in the end
it provides a great general introduction, but lacks a bit of specifics so that students can actually learn from MAPS for their own work
This is an excellent course. The way lecturers explain the concepts through practical real-world scenarios is truly remarkable.
Really , this is quite informative sessions. I have learned a lot and some of the practical implication experiences in a real life... Thanks a lot for such a wonderful course ..
