Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course introduces the students to the concept of futures studies in climate change adaptation (theoretical background as well as various methods). In particular, the course gives an introduction to the differences between various scenario techniques and approaches, point out the advantages and disadvantages (uncertainty and risk) of each method as well as to select a suitable scenario method for a specific problem. The course is split into a lecture part which introduces students to the basic theoretical background of scenario planning and a practical part, where students learn to implement scenario planning. This course contains three main learning outcomes: (1) an overview of scenario planning theory and concepts, (2) an exploration of the applications of the method (quantitative/qualitative) in various sub-fields of climate change adaptation, and (3) an examination of some of the modelling tools used for scenario planning.
