Climate change is one of the main challenges facing the planet's population. Its impacts affect most of its geographical areas, all of its main production sectors and all aspects of a social organization forming the basis for civil cohabitation within a country and between countries. It is therefore important to know how to predict changes in the climate, assess their impact, manage their consequences and plan preventive measures.
The Master's Programme provides the scientific competencies necessary to understand the mechanisms guiding climate and economic changes and assess the importance and, most importantly, the costs and benefits of the measures to be taken.
The Master's provides students with:
- methodological and analytical tools, statistical and econometric techniques, modeling and forecasting skills
- techniques for the scientific assessment of climate changes and their impacts
- economic assessment methods to quantify the costs and benefits of climate change impacts and the strategies to control them
- tools to programme and manage mitigation and adaptation strategies
