Certificate Course in Urbanization, Climate Change, Displacement and Relocation
In this Certificate Course we present how increasing urbanization is an important phenomenon in the modern world with the use of statistics from the global, regional and Sri Lankan contexts. We explore how natural hazards, urban development and climate change lead to significant changes in urban lives and livelihoods. We examine the consequences of these changes using concepts such as disaster- induced displacement, development-induced displacement and resettlement, and climate change mobility.
In addition to the theoretical knowledge in this field, we are anticipating to elaborate on real life scenarios, with the use of best practices and expert knowledge, taken from diverse dimensions.
