It was a wonderful learning experience but it would be more helpful for people like us if the course is free and if we could download course certificate for free upon completion.
This was excellent course which benefited lot to me.I grateful to suresh Gyan Vihar University and University of Geneva for providing such wonderful platform.

Thank you for this course, it is very useful for understanding the risks of climate change, the risk management and the vulnerability of the mountain systems and water ecosystems. At times, it's difficult to understand the English of the presenters, but this is also understandable as they are not native speakers but teachers and researchers with a lot of expertise. I believe the course could be better structured as the chapters didn't always seem to be connected, or some of them had very similar/repeated information. I suggest to include some practical exercises every week, so the students can practice the newly learned methods and info. Also, many of the slides have too much info on one page, which is not always fully visible and the speaker is not talking about it. So these slides are very heavy and give the student the impression that h/she doesn't really understand. An example would be the Korean case study. The links to the readings (4.11, 4.12 and 4,13) are now working. Also, the quality of the audio of the call between Prof. J. Balsiger and Dr. Ingold on social network analysis is very low and cannot really be properly understood. I am grateful for the opportunity to take this course for free and I thank everyone who got involved. The course has opened a whole new world for me and I am very interested in this field, I will try to focus more on climate change in my professional life.

Climate change will likely modify seasonal and overall water availability and, as a result, there will be increased competition for water. Climate change in the mountain regions studied in this course are leading to modifications in quantity and timing of water resources that have potentially significant ramifications for water governance and management. The investigations on the future changes in both precipitation and temperature extremes showed that the changes might be different in sign and magnitude at different temporal scales. Awareness of this problem is increasing, hopefully this new momentum will be sustained over time. Indeed, it was great course to learn and it will surely benefit the water mangers to cope with such challenges.

This MOOC is a must to accomplish in order to better grasp the findings related to the climate change influence on the Earth system on a regional scale as acknowledged by the Swiss scientific community. It provides a broad and "palpable" proof on how are vital ecosystems and its components such as water (glaciers, lakes and rivers), living organisms and plants affected. Highly recommended for those who seem lost with popularizing the scientific literature with respect to Climate Shifting.

Things that are good : It's a good overview of mechanism of climate and environmental changes that have occurred and predictions.
I would say that I see the world different now especially if I were to go for a hike as I'm going to search for all the indicators that have been mentioned in this course.
I think it's important for all of us to know our role in the ecosystem to understand the consequences of our actions in the long term, for the generations to come.

Very useful course to understand the climate change scenario on mountainous region. the groundwater recharge process, hazards related to climate change, glaciology etc. are very nicely described.

Overall interesting content. The english of the presenters is often difficult to understand, and the subtitles are sometimes incorrect.
