In this online Climate Policy unit, provided by Open Universities Australia and Curtin University, you will discover the basic elements of why and how climate change has occurred, and explore ways we can mitigate climate problems. You will learn about various approaches to climate change and how different countries apply climate policies, and also what mechanisms are used to reduce emissions on a global scale.
In this unit you will also learn about economic strategies being used to meet carbon emissions targets, and in this context you will analyse front-end policies such as carbon taxes and emission trading schemes. On the other hand you will also learn about the ‘end-user’ approach, which involves policies that encourage individuals to engage in energy efficiency and small scale renewable energy projects.
This is a robust and dynamic unit, giving you both an overview of climate policy in general and also an in-depth knowledge of policies and procedures. You will also take part in a climate change governance workshop, demonstrating the complexity of international negotiations and giving you practical experience of the negotiation process.
