Risks & Adaptation

The Risks and Adaptation team examines both local and global environmental risks in order to develop strategies to mitigate them. The team analyses the impact of climate risks on health, agriculture and urban infrastructure, the links between clean energy and water, other human development priorities, and designs effective responses to air and water pollution related problems.
