Undergraduate Natural Resources Management Programme

Brief Description of Program

This programme is inspired by the belief that sustainable development hinges fundamentally upon a harmony between human activities and the natural environment. Incessant human population increase in developing countries coupled with rising income has put pressure on environmental resources. Therefore, it is important to balance competing demands on natural resources such that the environment can continue to provide fundamental life support through consumptive and public-good services – i.e., via ecosystem services such as provisioning (e.g., food and water) and regulating services (e.g., flood control and climate regulation). Achieving the above will require the training of skilled human resources with integrated broad-based natural and environmental resource management skills that will tackle issues in an efficient and sustainable way.
