Week 1 Climate Change: Observing, Understanding and Modelling
Week 1 provided an overview of the climate system, how this has changed in the past and how it is predicted to change in the future. It presented an insight into the natural and man-made drivers of climate change and the impact that we are already seeing in the world around us.
Week 2 Climate Change and Water
Week 2 considered the connection between our fresh water, a rare and precious resource, and our changing climate. It looked at how climate change affects rainfall, flood risk and water supply in the context of other non-climatic drivers.
Week 3 Climate Change and Food
Week 3 explored how the production, access, cost and consumption of food are intimately connected with climate. It looked at the effects that climate change has on food and the contribution of the food system to climate change.
Week 4 Climate Change and Cities
Week 4 studied the inexorable pull of the cities, and their surprising vulnerability to extreme weather and climate events. However cities are also vibrant hubs of innovation, so the course considered community development examples.
Week 5 The Politics of Climate Change
Week 5 considered how people around the world, from the international level to the local community, are responding to the challenge of all times that is our changing climate.
