Why Climate Change Careers?
As per the Synthesis Report (SYR) of the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report (AR6), the adverse impacts of climate change have percolated spheres including agriculture, forestry, fishery, energy, tourism, human health and food security as well as gender and social equity. Extreme weather events have been increasing in their frequency and intensity, and the need to find solutions posed by climate change has been gaining momentum. There is a growing requirement for businesses to be sensitive to sustainability norms, and hence the requirement for human resource trained in climate change and sustainability practices. This is exactly where CChaNGE Courses that offer promising careers such as climate change risk assessment, sustainability accounting, adaptation and mitigation strategy development, regional, national and international policy formulation come into play (as per data from Australian National University website).
