This course challenges you to consider how one might lift societies out of poverty while also mitigating greenhouse gas emissions. We explore the inherent complexity of developing country governments wanting to grow their economies in a climate friendly way. You will be introduced to an approach with which to address this challenge. The approach consists of a facilitated process whereby academic researchers and high-level influential actors within society co-produce knowledge. You will track this process in four Latin American countries - Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Peru, and South Africa. You will hear from various professionals about their contexts and the different challenges and opportunities the process includes.

Super-awesome course that taught me about the super-wicked problem of our time and how to effectively achieve climate change mitigation and development objectives from developing countries context
The course has been very insightful to me as a climate change scientist. It has been very detailed and it has given me input that from a perspective that i had not thought of before. Thank you.
The course structure was very good and the real experience cases made the material look alive. Furthermore the essay writing part was very good, as practitioners had to get really involved.
Very practical course that explains the ground-level reality about climate change and how research organizations cope with government, society and industries to get policies implemented.
I found this course to be outstanding, in terms of: Interest, inspiration, technical content, stimulating new ideas, learning from other course participants, and general enjoyment.
It was a very interesting course with good lecturers. Learned alot as regards climate change mitigation. I also like how they analysed the situations for various regions.
Excellent course to develop the basic skill on Climate Change Mitigation under MAPs approach. I am thankful to University of CapeTown for such as an excellent course.
This course was exceptional! This is a very engaging course. I enjoyed learning from others in the course about climate change and development in their countries.
Excellent course that details the many issues regarding climate change policies, solutions, and issues within the context of developing countries
I LIKED THIS COURSE..THIS HELPED ME TO UNDERSTAND HOW MAPS IS USEFUL IN BRINGING EFFECTIVE CLIMATE CHANGE POLICIES AND ITS IMPLEMENTATION.
Course was very thorough and exhaustive. Widened my understanding of climate change from a different perspective that’s unique
Excellent intro to Climate Change mitigation and what has already been done, and how to take forward from lessons learned.
If a few concrete information (figures and fact) from developing countries were available, it would have been impressive.
It is very useful to develop knowledge on climate change. Climate change matters and that's how the course reflects.
Only 1 week of study and I already got so much that I am excited to talk about MAPS all day long with everybody.
The course is excellent one giving specific outlook towards the problems faced by developing countries.
It bridged the gap between conceptions about adverse effect of climate change and practical mitigation.
Very interesting and unique approach to tackling these problems together! Great course
Course very useful for an introduction to climate change issues and policy.
