À propos du cours
Greetings and Welcome to this MOOC!
This MOOC is at the junction between the development of Southern countries and sustainable development. It has: 1) a macroeconomic and financial dimension, developed by Gael Giraud and Alain Grandjean; 2) an ecological and climatic dimension, developed by David Claessen and ENS speakers; and 3) a focus on Southern countries, developed by AFD speakers.
Here are the learning goals for the entire training program
Goal 1: Be able to understand the relationship between the energy transition, the ecological transition, the role of energy in our economy, our economic development model, and financing issues.
Goal 2: Know how toadvocate for and lobby on issues and on the need to change reality in order to implement strategies and action plans.
