We connect people with climate, energy & disaster-risk research from the Australian National University. Our goal is to advance innovative solutions to address climate change, energy system transitions and disasters. We facilitate integrated approaches to research, teaching and policy, industry and community engagement across disciplines. We also lead the ANU Below Zero Initiative, which is working to reduce the University's greenhouse gas emissions to below zero.
Our Institute consolidates and builds on the activities of the former ANU Climate Change Institute, Energy Change Institute, and Disaster Risk Science Institute.
