UEA researches human and natural environments to make sure we can avoid some of the riskiest threats including rapid climate change, antibiotic resistance and loss of the world’s rarest species. 

By understanding our own and others’ environments, we can interact with our surroundings appropriately and make the adaptations that will be needed to protect these environments.
