UNU-EHS, founded in December 2003, deals with risk and vulnerability aspects of human security and the consequences of complex
natural hazards and global change. UNUEHS assumes that human security can be increased through education and appropriate
adaptation measures. The research of UNU-EHS therefore aims at improving the understanding of cause-effect relationships
and finding ways to reduce vulnerability for sustainable development.
The Institute aims at scientific excellence in two broad thematic areas:
- Vulnerability assessment, resilience analysis, risk management and adaptation strategies within linked human-environment systems
- Internal displacement and transboundary migration due to environmental push-factors.
