Environmental Security and Sustaining Peace Massive Open Online Course
Today is also the occasion to highlight that UN Environment has teamed up with the Environmental Law Institute, the Earth Institute at Columbia University, Duke University, the University of California at Irvine, and the United Nations Development Programme to develop a groundbreaking open online course on Environmental Security and Sustaining Peace.
Offered on the SDG Academy platform, the course synthesizes 100,000 pages of material and 225 case studies from over 60 post-conflict countries into seven hours of dynamic video lectures. The course is based on the experiences and lessons learned of over 1,000 experts and 10 United Nations agencies.
This course is targeted to:
- Peace and security specialists that want to understand more about natural resources.
- Natural resource experts that want to design better and more conflict-sensitive programs.
- Sustainable development practitioners as well as private sector actors that need to understand how natural resources can be developed in fragile contexts with weak governance.
- Advanced undergraduates and graduate students interested in the key concepts and practices of this growing field.
