SEI Asia, based in Bangkok, has a diverse team of multinational experts that integrates scientific research with participatory approaches to co-develop and share knowledge, build partnerships, and influence policy for resilient development. It focuses on gender and social equity, climate adaptation, disaster risk reduction, water insecurity and integrated water resources management, transitional agriculture, renewable energy and urbanization.

Environmental change and stresses are felt by all, but they do not affect all people equally. Social and gender inequalities shape people’s vulnerabilities to environmental shocks and stresses, weakening their capacities to realize their well-being and security. Social inequality is characterized by multiple and intersecting social identities of gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, age, ability and class that translate into privilege for some, but disadvantage and marginalization for others. These are shaped by political, economic and cultural dynamics of power and affect the capacities of people to achieve sustainable development and well-being.
In this context, the SEI Asia Cluster on Gender, Environment and Development (GED) works towards achieving transformative and socially inclusive sustainable development through rigorous research that informs key environment and development policy agendas. A key focus area is on the topics of environmental change, human mobility and migration. Our team applies an intersectional lens on gender equality, social equity and poverty and uses participatory methodologies that strive towards social and environmental justice.
