Yogyakarta (3/12) – Visiting Professor (Guest Lecturer) is one of the internationalization programs of the Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta (UMY) which aims to present Visiting Lecturers from foreign universities, especially those who are included in the 100 QS World University Rankings or who have a cooperation agreement with UMY. The Visiting Professor Program can be proposed by two or more Study Programs, either under the same Faculty or across Faculties. The output of the Visiting Professor Program is the publication of research results with UMY lecturers in reputable/indexed international journals. In addition, with the Visiting Professor program, students can explore and receive new knowledge and knowledge that lecturers do not necessarily teach at UMY. It can also provide an internationalization experience for UMY students who register for the International class.
Therefore, the International Program of Government Affairs and Administration Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta (IGOV UMY) held a Visiting Professor activity which became a routine activity at IGOV UMY. In this Visiting Professor, IGOV UMY invited Agustiyara, MPA., from the Eötvös Loránd University, Hungary. The activity was held on Saturday (3/12) through the Zoom Meetings and moderated by Nawang Kurniawati, S.IP., MPA.
In this activity, Mr. Agus brought up the topic of Analysing Regional & Global Climate Change Scenario which he explained about Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs) dan Representative Concentration Pathway (RCP), These 2 things have similarities to projecting climate change in the future, but there are differences between the 2 things, SSP based scenarios further refine the previous greenhouse gas concentration scenarios known as Representative Concentration Pathways or RCPs. This is certainly useful for IGOV UMY students to become a provision when they become policymakers regarding the environment, where these data become a reference and not just assumptions in making public policies later.
