Learning Objectives (Module C4): The aim of the module is to lead students into the economic and political dimensions of global change. Global environmental change confronts societies with problems (e.g. loss of biodiversity, desertification, climate change or soil erosion) that can create considerable costs for society at large. Political solutions are needed to deal with conflicting interests. Environmental governance encompasses a variety of different approaches of social regulation from international treaties across borders to informal networks or market-based competition.
Course Content: The seminar “Global Change Policy, Contracts and Administrative Strategies” provides an introduction to international political processes in the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity & Ecosystem Services (IPBES).
