This course is designed for students whose concern for the global environment is continuing to grow. The course will provide a critical survey of the contemporary field of environmental policy, planning, and management in international contexts.

The course is centrally concerned with understanding deliberate efforts to translate environmental knowledge into action to achieve particular outcomes in the way landscape and natural ecosystems are used and managed.

It will also consider how the objectives for land and resource use are shaped, fashioned, and contested in democratic and non-democratic settings. The course will critically examine contemporary thinking on these environmental themes, including sustainable use practices, political-ecology, decentralized environmental management, NGO and community-based approaches, social learning, and regional and urban planning.
