Opintojakson tavoitteet

The aim is that students understand the starting points and the needs of developing countries in protection of the environment and promoting well being of the population. By using knowledge gained from the course, the student will be able to take part in carrying out an international development co-operation project and also monitor and analyse implementation of the project.


Opintojakson sisältö

The course is designed to examine and introduce students to inherent environmental problems of scales, cultural context, and comlexities in developing countries. Students will be able to learn, for instance, that environmental problems are multimensional and the solutions that have worked in one context or scale will often fail in another.

By sampling a number of developing countries, the course will examine the following:
What is development? What are developing countries?
Natural catastrophies, population growth
Health situations
Land use, nature
Erosion, desertification
Water and fishery
Would international co-development work be a solution?
