CIDE-5402 Environment and Development

It is sought here that students know and understand the complex relationship between human activities and the natural environment where these activities unfold. This course tries to analyze different forms put forward to address multiple sides of existing relationship between nature and society and therefore the environmental problematic, while offering the students an overall map of the multiple fronts and diverse dimensions pertaining environmental management. No specialization is pretended here on any particular front (for instance pollution, water management, forests, bio-diversity, etc) given that such specialization would require going to in-depth techniques which are not the subject of a post graduate degree in Regional Management of Development. What it is sought here instead, is that this type of professional knows and has the capability to interpret this map of relationships, focus and instruments, enabling the identification of priority fields, methodologies and expert assistance required to manage development.
