The scope of our research community extends beyond our regional and national roots; it also encompasses research into issues that affect areas of Africa, Asia and beyond, which have implications for the world as a whole.
Poverty, poor health, climate change, energy and water supply, food security and conflict are problems that can impact us all, so we are working with international charities, companies, universities, government partners and communities to improve our research and share knowledge.
