Pompido Chilala (Zambia)

What surprised me is how friendly the lecturers are and how easy it is to find materials to study. My program has a huge link to what am doing now. I am currently working with different organisations to come up with agricultural solutions tailored for Zambia.

Geography of Global Environmental Change
One of the challenges facing human society today is to understand the main causes and possible impacts of current global environmental change, and then to find appropriate ways to adapt to that change. The main goal of the study program is to offer students a geographical view of the current very dynamic environmental changes. The physical basis of the global environmental change is studied from the perspective of the main disciplines of physical geography. The part of the study program that focuses on the impact on society and the possibilities of adaptation is the domain of social geography. Knowledge and skills associated with methods of studying the spatio-temporal variability of the global change manifestations are covered by subjects in the field of geoinformatics and cartography.
