Master in Climate Change
The 1992 signing of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change was the beginning of a series of initiatives aimed at curbing the indifference that had existed until then regarding the emissions of certain gases into the atmosphere, mainly carbon dioxide and methane, causing an increase in the overall temperature of the earth.
Later, with the signing of the Kyoto Protocol in 1997, and its subsequent entry into force, it was given definitive recognition by being included, more or less successfully in government agendas of developed nations, in private investment and ultimately, in the day to day perception of civil society.
Nevertheless, other than specific interests, there exists much ignorance about the mechanisms of climate change and its impact on biodiversity, production systems and the general population, hence the need for qualified personnel to carry out actions and make decisions in the fight against global warming.
The Masters in Climate Change that we present here responds to the need to train critical professionals in different sectors, who can find alternatives and business opportunities arising from this phenomenon to develop plans for the adaptation and mitigation through Research, Development and Innovation projects.
For this reason, it is considered essential to train the student with a previous environmental background, so as to allow them to understand the basic issues of climate change and, thus, achieve, after the study of the second part, a comprehensive view of the problem at the environmental, socio-political and economic levels.
