Thomalla, F., K. Johnson. (2017). The Reducing Disaster Risk Cluster at SEI Asia. Stockholm Environment Institute, Stockholm.

The Reducing Disaster Risk Cluster, based in the SEI Asia Centre, is a multi-disciplinary group of professionals with backgrounds in the social and physical sciences, including geography, disasters and adaptation, development studies, sustainability science, environmental science, and hydrology.

Our current work spans research on risk, vulnerability, adaptation and resilience; inclusion and stakeholder engagement; collaborative learning; and developing analytical methods and tools.

The cluster is focused on meeting the research, policy and capacity development needs of our partners in academia, decision-making and civil society across Asia in pursuit of the Sendai Framework priorities and targets, as well as the Sustainable Development Goals.

The cluster works particularly on regional cooperation, disaster recovery and resilience, empowering vulnerable groups, and culture and risk. This fact sheet provides an overview of its work.
