The SEI Asia centre coordinates SEI activities in Asia. It currently focuses on three research themes: Water Resources and Sanitation, Coastal Resources and Development, and Adapting to Climate Change. Other two themes being developed are Sustainable Energy and Atmospheric Environment.
The centre’s programmes are structured principally along regional lines, and carried out in cooperation with national and regional partners. Its pioneer programme, on which significant work had been done even before the establishment of the centre, is for the Mekong region, and integrated programmes are being developed for South Asia and ASEAN.
The staff at the SEI Asia Centre forms a multi-disciplinary group in the fields of adaptation science, environmental education, environmental engineering and sustainable infrastructure, environmental science, development communications, geochemistry, geography, hydrology and water resources engineering, natural resource management, rural and regional development planning, social economy, sociology and public policy.
