The module aims to illustrate conflict in the environment covering examples, causes and resolution. The module is largely practical and field visit based with 2 nights away from Bangor.

Cynnwys cwrs

A one week course combining field practical sessions based in Bangor and field visits away from Bangor. The practical element illustrates the conflict between land use for economic production and conservation & biodiversity outcomes. Specifically the practical sessions will investigate the relationship between diffuse environmental pollution and biodiversity levels. The field visits provide further examples of conflict and also illustrate how conflict resolution has been tackled and how we can evaluate the relative success of different approaches.
