Abstract

In April-May of this year, the AERC and UNU-WIDER offered an online course on climate change. The course — Climate Change Science and Modelling Biophysical Impacts — is a three-week online course covering the current science on climate change and its biophysical implications. It is designed for professionals in different disciplines who are confronting the issue of climate change in their work. This first edition of the course focused on scholars in departments of economics or related disciplines at African universities. In all, 31 scholars from 17 countries participated in the online course. Of this group, 28 met at the end of June 2011 at the Department of Economics at the University of Cape Town for an intensive short course on the economics of climate change. This economics course will then be transferred online to provide a course covering science, biophysics and economics.
