Have you ever wondered how climate change affects the lives and livelihoods of the poorest people in developing countries? This course exposes you to key themes in the climate change adaptation and international development debate and enables you to critically understand the climate change and development issues affecting the capacity and well-being of local communities in Australia and developing countries. The course examines how local level responses to climate change are shaped by multi-level climate governance processes, exposes inequities in adaptation responses to climate change impacts, and explores how these adaptations can better respond to the needs of poor and disadvantaged communities
