This course won the Best New Postgraduate Award (HEA Awards, Ireland) for 2017. More information here. It was also shortlisted for Best Science Award for 2018–19.

 

The world’s climate is rapidly changing due to global warming, and will continue to do so for the decades and centuries ahead. This poses major challenges for future agriculture and food systems to provide food and other bioresources for the 9.7 billion people that will occupy the planet by 2050.

 

This programme is aimed at students who want to combine scientific, engineering, technical, social or policy skills so that they are better equipped to understand and make significant contributions regarding the adaptation and mitigation of climate change impacts on global agriculture and food security.The MSc in Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (MScCCAFS) provides students with the skills and tools for developing sustainable agricultural practices, policies and measures to address the challenge that global warming poses for agriculture and food security worldwide.

 

Students complete a research project worth one-third of the final grade. This research may be completed at the student’s place of work, within the international CGIAR Research Programme on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security or in collaboration with other institutional partners.‌
