"Understanding, responding, adapting and living with climate changeā€

Our response to climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity in the 21st century and presents huge social, environmental and economic risks and opportunities. Climate action is a core research challenge for the Environmental Research Institute focused on developing the transformative solutions needed to avoid major disruptions to social-ecological systems in the coming decades.


Our research activity is focused on
