Climate variability and change poses a huge risk to us all, and Walker Institute research is helping solve these challenges.
These challenges will have the most effect on developing societies and responding to these requires an interdisciplinary grassroots approach. At the Walker Institute, we focus on productive solution-oriented collaboration 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 help safeguard lives of generations to come.
