Graduate Diploma of Environmental Policy and Management

University of Adelaide, The

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Postgraduate
CRICOS: 00123M

Develop a deeper understanding of the principles and practice of environmental policy, planning and governance. Responding effectively to environmental problems involves far more than the application of scientific knowledge, or the 'top-down' regulation of people and their environments. Government policies must be negotiated with, and implemented through, diverse private-sector agents and a differentiated civil society. Managing environmental problems therefore entails a new set of approaches, including government, public-private partnerships, economic tools and incentives, democratic decentralisation and risk management. The program addresses how the signature environmental issues of our time are to be managed; now and into the future. It is targeted at three distinct audiences: recent graduates seeking a career in environmental management; mid-career professionals looking to update their knowledge in the fast-changing domain of environmental governance and management; and those wishing to undertake further research on these topics.
