The challenge of responding and adapting to climate change will drive trillions of dollars of new investment over the coming decades, with major changes required across the economy, in energy production and consumption, industry, buildings, transport, infrastructure, forests and agriculture. Delivering this investment will require greatly enhanced capacity in all aspects of carbon finance.
Delivering this investment will require professionals with a deep understanding of the mechanisms that will regulate new financial flows like:
renewable investment funds; international climate funds; carbon markets.
In addition, following the Paris Agreement, both developed and developing countries now have increased commitments for addressing climate change, which is driving increased demand for skills and knowledge in carbon and climate finance.
A 2:1 Honours degree from a good university in business, economics, engineering or a social or physical science is normally required.
