Course content

Climate change poses a major threat to all aspects of life on Earth: nature and humans are under pressure. Findings regarding this phenomenon are alarming and indisputable, and facets of it are present everywhere. While the knowledge base about the dimension and dynamics of climate change is constantly growing and the reasons and driving forces are generally well understood, the management of climate change is a complex challenge. Interdisciplinary skills are necessary in order to develop mitigation and adaptation strategies in the realm of land-use and nature management. The M-CCM focuses on solution-building for climate change mitigation and adaptation at farm to landscape level.
