RECOVER focuses on enhancing small islands’ capacity to adapt to climate change through more inclusive, and research-informed decision environments. Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are on the frontlines of climate change and need transformational adaptation strategies urgently. Three SIDS in the Asia-Pacific region will serve as “hubs of innovation” for scalable and systems-changing climate resilience approaches.

Illuminating global sources of minerals and metals for responsible sourcing. A data-driven transparency initiative for mapping and tracking responsible production and trade of minerals and metals.

Smelters and refineries are central nodes in both primary and recycled metal value chains. We are developing a database that supports materials flow analysis, business analytics and metallurgical engineering knowledge to characterize metal processing, recycling capacity, and business capability -- in support of a circular economy for metals and more sustainable sourcing of primary materials in the 21st Century.

Projected global peak population and growing affluence are rapidly increasing pressure on agricultural production and undermining the ability of critical regional- and global-scale life support systems to sustain humanity. To ensure nutritional security and biophysical sustainability, we need to understand dietary patterns, their impacts and what can be done to shape them.
