Ocean warming, sea level rise and local disturbances undermine the health of coral reefs worldwide. This threatens the continued physical and economic existence of low-lying island states. This course examines how climate change and development pressures are eroding coastal health and living conditions for people, and impacting on the flow of services generated by coastal systems. Discussion of a recent feasibility study for the resettlement of Chagos provides a real life example of the science of climate change and civil rights coming face-to-face with strategic interests and powerful national alliances.

This course is offered in conjunction with,Oceans: a valueable resource, a vulnerable habitat, taking place on 20 October 2018.




The course fee includes tuition, tea, coffee and lunch and travel on excursions (but not entrance fees to properties visited).

VAT does not apply to course fees and there is no service charge (gratuities to domestic staff are left to your discretion).

You may cancel a course booking at any time. After the 14 day cancellation period has expired, the standard ICE course cancellation policy will apply. Please view our refund and cancellation policy for further details.
