Taught by world-leading experts in climate change science and policy, this program provides you with the skills to decipher the problem of climate change through exposure to different lenses and perspectives.

Climate change is a global policy problem. Your in-depth understanding and strategic insight into how to mitigate and adapt to the changing climate will be in demand. You will benefit from drawing on expertise from the Crawford School of Public Policy and ANU’s highly-acclaimed Fenner School of Environment & Society.
