MA in Energy and Sustainable Development

Kadir Has University
Campus Full time September 2018 Turkey Istanbul

As a vital input of economy, energy is one of the most strategic tools for sustainable development of countries. The contemporary energy system, which is 90 percent dependent on fossil fuels, is not sustainable due to resource scarcity, environmental problems, and global climate change. [+]

As a vital input of economy, energy is one of the most strategic tools for sustainable development of countries. The contemporary energy system, which is 90 percent dependent on fossil fuels, is not sustainable due to resource scarcity, environmental problems, and global climate change. Another factor increasing the importance of energy is that in today’s world, where natural gas is used as a transition fuel on the path towards a low-carbon energy system, the geopolitical rivalry among major energy players continues to heighten. This rivalry accelerates the struggle for resources and causes global economic and political destabilization.

Turkish energy system is also faced with crucial problems. Turkey imports about three quarter of its energy in exchange for 50-60 billion USD and its dependence on foreign resources threatens energy security as well as national security of the country. Turkey’s import dependency on natural gas and oil, which are the most consumed primary resources, is currently more than 90 percent. Furthermore, domestic energy production is gradually decreasing while the gap between production and consumption continues to widen. In the 21st century, state economy cannot be sustained under such circumstances in energy.... [-]

Master in Natural Resources Management (NRM)

Natural resources are the basis of livelihoods and economies of every nation in Asia. Given the rich cultural, social, political, and biophysical diversity across Asia, the professionals working in natural resources management need a strong working knowledge of several interrelated sciences.

We provide education and research opportunities leading to M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in NRM. The complex nature of NRM issues requires a broad range of skills and techniques ranging from the social to the physical sciences. The NRM field of study therefore specializes in areas as diverse as community-based natural resources management, forestation and forestry, integrated land management, biodiversity conservation, climate mitigation/adaptation, and the valuation of ecosystem services.

NRM also provides training, outreach and capacity-building opportunities to a growing number of interested clients on many NRM related areas. Besides providing training, we have assisted universities in Nepal, Indonesia, Laos PDR, Vietnam, Cambodia and other countries to develop their capacity to implement academic programs on environment and NRM.
