MSc on Science-Policy Interfaces on Biodiversity & Ecosystems Services
The West African Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (WABES) calls for applications to their master’s programme on Science-Policy Interfaces on Biodiversity and Ecosystems Services in West Africa
The master of science programme is a 2-year interdisciplinary course designed to provide students with broad, high-quality understanding, knowledge and skills needed to facilitate science/policy interfaces, such as the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services IPBES — and to ultimately achieve the sustainable development goals in West Africa.
Participants will get a basic understanding of relevant scientific tools and methods and an ability to transfer their results to policymaking. The course is geared towards people interested in sustainable biodiversity and ecosystems services management through science based policy and decisionmaking.
