This course highlights Mongolians' lived experiences of climate change and related challenges. Case studies from other regions of the world will also be given for comparative purposes. Course content will draw primarily from research carried out by social scientists. One premise of the course is that scientific measures of climate change, though important, need to be complemented by qualitative data, for example, rural Mongolians' personal stories of climate change. Only such an interdisciplinary study of climate change can provide a complete picture of its challenges and serve as a solid basis for policy responses.
