Some of the hardest hit by changes in our environment are in developing nations. This requires tailored solutions that encompass economic change, social equity and environmental protection. To achieve sustainable development in poor and developing societies we need to move beyond conventional approaches toward transdisciplinary solutions that bring together academic and other kinds of knowledge, human rights, social justice and goals of ecological sustainability.
There is a growing demand for a new generation of practitioners to work in the sustainability and community sector, who are engaged and committed to sustainable development in a global context.
The International Development and Environment specialisation will develop your knowledge and skills to analyse the causes of poverty, disadvantage and environmental change, and work effectively with a wide range of groups to plan and implement development that is environmentally sustainable.
