|Masters in Tropical Risk Management is the most recent graduate program in Ateneo de Davao University. The course is a direct response to the current issue of prevailing climate change.
Father Joel E. Tabora SJ, AdDU’s new president, signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the Provincial Government of South Cotabato represented by Governor Arthur Y. Pingoy Jr last May 24.
Cited in the MOA is the payment of the province to the university of P1,724,426 to cover for the tuition of 20 selected scholars for four semesters and one summer. The scholarship program is primarily vested to the selected recipients to prepare them in administering a Risk Management Plan in South Cotabato.
AdDU is given the task of designating the Director and the faculty of the Tropical Institute for Climate Studies (TropICS) for better implementation of the program.
Father McNamara of Ateneo de Davao University stressed that he is currently looking for a way to bring in a similar course for the undergraduate programs.
