The Centre for Integrated Research on Risk and Resilience (CIRRR) brings together researchers from across disciplines to explore transformational responses to climate risk reduction.

Drawing on resilience to understand the related social, political and economic underpinnings of the climate threats, CIRRR aims to improve entry points for policymakers and practitioners to engage in transformational adaptation pathways and local priorities to drive decision-making. 


CIRRR has three interconnected objectives:

  1. To drive vulnerability reduction by advancing local and Indigenous understandings of risk and resilience;
  2. To better connect policymakers and practitioners to knowledge on climate-related risks and transformational adaptation pathways;
  3. To improve understanding of novel, cascading and transboundary climate-related hazards.

Work streams

CIRRR's objectives are achieved by:

  1. Supporting, advancing and promoting locally-led research;
  2. Building effective engagement with the policy and practice communities on climate-related risk and resilience;
  3. Undertaking transdisciplinary research practices to advance understandings of risk.

CIRRR collaborates with other research centres at King’s, external partners, and NGOs to deliver its goals. We pursue research, academic teaching, professional training and education, networking and alumni events, public seminars and workshops, consultancy and advocacy.  

Get in touch

CIRRR is based in the Department of Geography at King’s. We are interested in partnering with and supporting institutions working towards these objectives.
