The signing in 1992 of the United Nations Framework Convention on climate change, marked the beginning of a set of initiatives aimed at curbing the lack of concern that until then existed on the emissions of certain gases into the atmosphere, mainly carbon dioxide and methane, causing of the increase in global temperature of the earth.
Later, with the signing of the Kyoto protocol in 1997, and its subsequent entry into force, the definitive endorsement was given to the inclusion, with more or less success, of the phenomenon in the government agendas of developed countries, in private investment and, ultimately, in the day to day and perception of civil society.
However, regardless of particular interests, there is still a great lack of knowledge about the mechanisms of climate change and its repercussions on biodiversity, production systems and population in general, hence the need to have qualified personnel to carry out actions and make decisions in the fight against global warming.
The Master in Climate Change presented here responds to a need to train critical professionals in different sectors, who know how to look for alternatives and take advantage of the business opportunities derived from this phenomenon to formulate adaptation and mitigation plans in Research, Development and Innovation projects .
For this reason, it is considered essential to prepare the student with a previous environmental base that allows him to understand the fundamental issues of climate change and, in this way, achieve, after the study of the second part, an integrative vision of the problem at the environmental level, political-social and economic.
