The School of International Development is one of the world’s leading institutions for research and teaching on the interface between the environment and poverty reduction. This degree programme concentrates on natural resources and environmental issues in development, such as climate change, water security, coastal ecosystems and forest conservation, biological diversity and sustainability. Links are made between the environment, questions of policy, and people’s livelihoods and poverty reduction.
You will learn about the current distribution of access to resources, services, opportunities, human rights and other elements that collectively determine the well-being of individuals and communities.
Uniquely in the UK, this course integrates social and natural science in a broad interdisciplinary approach to studying development issues. At the core of this degree programme is an exploration of the key themes in environmental and natural resource management, and how they inform our understanding of change and how it might be sustained.
