The Sustainability and Climate Change research beacon focuses on understanding, mitigating, and adapting to the challenges posed by climate change and resource scarcity in a growing world. We develop solutions and strategies that promote environmentally sustainable development, reducing the impact of human activities on the planet, and fostering resilience in the face of climate-related challenges. Researchers within this beacon collaborate with stakeholders worldwide, including national governments, non-governmental organisations, and major industries to address critical issues related to sustainability and climate change. Our work aligns research efforts with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to address global challenges related to poverty, inequality, climate action, and environmental conservation: we work to address the disproportionate impacts of environmental degradation and climate change on marginalised communities, and advocate for equitable and just solutions.
