SEI Latin America is SEI’s newest centre. It began operations in 2018 and is located in Bogotá, Colombia. The centre’s research agenda focuses on the profound transformations that are under way in the region. Colombia is an ideal location for investigating the connections between environmental management and development in the post-conflict era, and for sharing insights on land use, air quality, water resources and ecosystems across the region.
