GE/ES 310 - Global Risks, Regional Vulnerabilities and Sustainable Development Pathways in the Mediterranean Region

The Mediterranean region, one of the oldest trading regions in the world has been described as an area of mutual economic, social and cultural exchanges. Yet this ancient trading ground is now threatened by unsustainable human pressures on fragile linked social and ecological systems, as well as growing distrust between the less developed and more developed parts of the region.

This course will analyze regional vulnerabilities in a context of global risks and will explore mitigation and adaptation strategies at multiple scales, through case studies. The role of international and regional organizations in adaptation, resilience building risks mitigation and disasters preparedness will also be examined.
