Research programmes

Our work is grouped into five programmes. Within these are around 20 to 25 research topics, which between them cover the breadth of socio-economic research on climate change and the environment. 

Three overarching themes feature in all our programmes and shape our research questions:

  • Policy leadership across the globe: policy approaches that are emerging in many countries, including emerging economies;
  • The response and responsibilities of business: studying climate change, both the risks and the opportunities, from the angle of the private sector;
  • Risk and uncertainty: the understanding, quantification and management of uncertainty in both mitigation and adaptation.
