Why this program at UCM?

The Master's Degree in Global Changes and Disaster Risk is an academic program of national and international importance that arises as a response to the permanent need for the preservation of life on planet Earth under favorable conditions of existence, from the approach of sustainable development and the recognition of the effects generated by global changes in its dimensions: natural and socio-natural, starting from the identification in the global context of all those phenomena that represent milestones for the planet for its role in the generation of risks and disasters, to understand how they occur, how they act and what may be the solutions to address them.
