The Institute for Social and Environmental Transition-International collaborates with local partners to build resilience and catalyze adaptation to social and environmental change. They particularly focus on strategies that address the fundamental challenges change poses for marginalized populations and those who lack the resources to adapt. Our work brings together theoretical and scientific insights with social engagement, local knowledge, and shared learning to identify practical strategies at the local level and to foster the growth of applied knowledge. They work closely with sister organizations and other partners in South and Southeast Asia, the USA, and other regions.
