ENRG 340 - Energy and Climate in Rural Development


This course covers issues related to energy, agriculture, the environment, and social and economic development in rural areas of developing countries. Energy, climate change, and rural development are inextricably linked, and access to energy impacts the economic opportunities and environmental conditions of people around the world. As nations get wealthier, they use more energy, and the impacts of climate change will fall disproportionately on the poor and rural parts of the world. The course explores the complex linkages tying these issues together in the context of developing countries using principles from natural science, technology, and economics. Students also learn how to approach and understand the values and viewpoints of other cultures in a respectful manner.
