SEI Asia’s research teams work in a number of thematic areas, in addition to driving several initiatives and programmes. This work covers climate change, disasters and development, gender, environment and development (GED), water resources management, energy futures, city health and wellbeing, capacity development for research in the Mekong Region, and regional collaboration. SEI Asia additionally provides policy support that reaches across all of our research areas.
SEI works in close collaboration with its host Chulalongkorn University (CU), Thailand under a long-term agreement until 2023. A joint cluster on Water and Air for Sustainable Development formed in 2019 aims to undertake collaborative research with CU’s educational faculties and research institutions, produce academic outputs and influence public policies as well as seek research funding opportunities.
