American University of Central Asia - AUCA - MISSION

MISSION

 

The creation of the Environmental Sustainability and Climate Science program was prompted by Central Asia’s need for environmental experts and AUCA’s mission to support the region’s transition to a development path that balances social, economic and environmental interests. This program perfectly fits the university’s mission of training enlightened and impassioned leaders, who think globally and act this out locally in the specific conditions of Central Asia.

The aim is to train responsible managers who master the tools of sustainable development and who also have a thorough understanding of environmental issues such as climate change, disappearing glaciers, water scarcity, and reductions in the predictability of rain and crops, and the loss of wildlife. This program focuses on developing country issues, and applicable to environmental studies worldwide, and draws on natural resource institutes such as USA and developed country universities and other leading global organizations’ unrivalled pool of expertise in issues of sustainable development, climate and other environmental change, environmental management, environmental data collection and analysis.
