The global impacts of climate change and environmental degradation are amongst the greatest threats to public health, the global economy and biodiversity.
To help address this crisis, we are harnessing our high quality research expertise spanning climate science, emissions reduction, food sustainability, air quality impacts, new materials discovery, behaviour insights, risk communication, community engagement and the development of new sustainable technologies.
Our researchers attended COP26 to observe negotiations, contribute to discussions, present at events and promote the University's research, helping to inform future policy.
Working with collaborators across the globe, we are aligning these strengths to explore impacts of climate change, develop solutions to environmental challenges and address knowledge gaps.
Our research excellence brings tangible benefits at a global, national and local scale in terms of climate change mitigation and adaptation as we work towards a lower carbon future.
The climate futures research theme aligns closely with the University’s commitment to sustainability.
