Remedial for 10 weeks

The purpose of this course is to provide students with a framework to understand the key approaches, processes, challenges and problems related to the field of environmental management. Through an introduction of a wide variety of course materials, on-going discussions and assignments, students will become familiar with, and equipped to engage in the cooperative resolution of complex environmental issues. The study of environmental management requires an understanding from a multitude of perspectives, drawing upon skills from numerous areas. The effects of environmental management can be critical for both developed and developing countries, often requiring different approaches and decision-making processes. It is highly important for students to recognize that the perception of a natural environment with pristine waterfalls, forests and wild animals wandering in endless reserved land, is being overshadowed by the impacts of humans on the natural environment. Through an interdisciplinary approach, this course engages students in various environmental issues and imparts a set of skills they can utilize in the decision-making process for environmental management
