Certificate Course on Environmental Law and Policy



As human population expands, economic development proceeds and new technologies arise, society faces more complex and previously unknown environmental problems. These problems need to be addressed in the context of an increasingly globalized economy where significant differences of environmental quality and quality of life persist. Already existing regulatory structures add another layer of complexity.

Each module will be emailed to the students on their registered email address sequentially, subsequent to which they will be sent Assessment Papers.

This course is conducted online, but certificates will sent through post.  The results of the Course will be announced on the CELPD Website and the Certificates will be dispatched to the registered postal address within 10 days.
