University of Edinburgh unveils low carbon finance master's
The University of Edinburgh has launched the world's first master's course in low carbon finance.

Currently there are just 25 places available on the course, which received six applications per place, and course director Francisco Ascui said the programme should bring financially-minded graduates into the low carbon industry.

"There's a shortage of people who are qualified to bridge the gap between the environmentalists and policymakers on the one hand and the financial community on the other," he told Scotland on Sunday.

He added with the Kyoto Protocol set to expire in 2012, there is uncertainty about the regulations which will be in place when the students graduate.

The Confederation of British Industry (CBI) expressed concerns earlier this year that the UK could struggle to attract the investment needed to build the infrastructure required to support the low carbon economy.

Katja Hall, chief policy director for the CBI, said the government must provide clarity about its plans for a greener future, including ensuring an efficient planning system and that there are "no more sudden policy shifts as we saw with the carbon reduction commitment". ADNFCR-1235-ID-800599982-ADNFCR
