title Environmental policy in an international context
description <div><p>This innovative module explores the causes and consequences of a range of environmental problems and the main policies that have been formulated to address them. They include climate change, ozone depletion, deforestation, loss of biodiversity and unsustainable development. You'll learn how political divisions, inequalities and contentions over values and knowledge can hinder political responses to environmental problems. The module concludes by examining some of the policy options that might lead to a 'green future'. You'll find this module ideal if you wish to develop a policy-relevant understanding of international problems for career development or personal interest.</p></div>
