Examples of Environment and Sustainability Research
As an interdisciplinary research institute, the ESI works on many projects that bring diverse perspectives together to shed light on some of the major challenges the planet is facing.
In looking for solutions to problems of environmental change, our researchers tackle an extensive range of topics: some solutions are technological, others might relate to land use, and sometimes they depend on a change in human behaviour. Most involve combinations of all three.
We combine multiple, in-depth local and regional studies to provide insights into how environmental growth can be achieved more broadly, and work in partnership with an array of stakeholders to further their strategic ambitions
in this regard and to deliver practical solutions for them.
The ESI links closely with other Institutes and Centres of Excellence across the University researching Environmental Intelligence. More information on the University's wider work can be found here.
