About this program

Disaster Risk Management and Climate Governance (English)

This Master’s degree has been designed to provide professionals from different disciplines with the necessary knowledge and skills for applied research and for the management of means and tools that can be used in the fields of Disaster Risk Management and climate governance. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), climate governance is related to mechanisms and voluntary measures destined to run social systems towards prevention, mitigation or adaptation to the risks caused by climate change (Jagers and Steripple, IPCC glossary). Therefore, acquiring knowledge and skills in this subject is highly relevant in a world more and more exposed to climate-related phenomena. The main groups of interest include engineers, architects, experts on Earth science, economic science, social science, environmental science, ecologists, sociologists, biologists, hydrologists, educators, geographers and other professionals interested in developing their competences in risk management and climate governance.
