This course aims at exposing the students to the problem of climate change (currently a matter of significant global concern) as well as to technological and policy options to mitigate greenhouse gases (GHG). It is also aimed at equipping the students with approaches to carry out assessments of GHG emission mitigation projects and their economic analysis. Furthermore, the course covers the key features of international conventions on climate change including the clean development mechanism (CDM).
