GEOG 5006 - People and Environment in the Asia-Pacific Region

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2015

This course will introduce students to socio-economic and environmental issues in the Asia-Pacific region. This region, which characterised by extraordinary cultural and economic diversity as well as important environmental resources, is also marked by significant economic, demographic and political change. This course is concerned with understanding the processes of human and environmental change in the region, its major environmental problems and issues, as well as with differing approaches to environmental management. Topics covered each semester will reflect the expertise of teaching staff and may include natural resource management issues, environmental law and resource governance, sustainable regional development, population and health, urbanisation, poverty and tourism. Specific case studies of countries from the regions are an essential part of the teaching and learning in this course.
