Climate variability and change pose a huge risk to us all, and Walker Institute research is helping to solve these challenges.
These challenges will have the greatest impact on developing societies, and responding to these requires an interdisciplinary grassroots approach. At the Walker Institute, we focus on productive solution-oriented collaborations on the ground, within the most at-risk communities. Our research makes a genuine difference to the lives of the poorest communities around the world and helps to safeguard the lives of generations to come.
Our work focuses on a range of topics, from empowering small farm holders to increase crop resilience, to multidisciplinary study aiming to improve projections of the effects of climate change on rural livelihoods and urban infrastructure in the Lake Victoria basin.
