UN University Institute for Environment (UNU-EHS)

The United Nations University created the Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) to address risks and vulnerabilities that are the consequence of complex - both acute and latent - environmental hazards. It aims to improve the in-depth understanding of the cause effect relationships to find possible ways to reduce risks and vulnerabilities. The Institute is conceived to support policy and decision makers with authoritative research and information. UNU-EHS is supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Ministry of Science and Research of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, both dedicated to promoting sustainable development and advancing human security. UNU-EHS’ research and training activities focus on flood plains, deltas and coastal zones, with emphasis on urban agglomerations. Drought and its impact on rural communities is an added priority from 2006 onwards.
