Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS)

Bonn , Germany

  • The UNU Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) explores problems and promotes solutions related to the environmental dimension of human security. The Institute aims at academic 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.

    UNU-EHS comprises four academic sections (programmes) — Environmental Migration, Social Vulnerability and Adaptation (EMSVA); Vulnerability Assessment, Risk Management and Adaptive Planning (VARMAP); nvironmental Vulnerability & Energy Security (EVES); and Enhancing Graduate Educational Capacities for Human Security (EGECHS) — and a communication unit.
