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.
Our work focusses on a range of topics, from empowering small farm holders to increase crop resilience, to multi-disciplinary study aimed to improve projections of the effects of climate change on rural livelihoods and urban infrastructure in the Lake Victoria basin.
