Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI)

SEI is an independent international research institute. We have been engaged in environment and development issues at local, national, regional and global policy levels for more than 20 years.

SEI was formally established in 1989 by the Swedish Government and celebrated its 20th anniversary in October 2009. The Institute has established a reputation for rigorous and objective scientific analysis in the field of environment and development.

Our goal is to bring about change for sustainable development by bridging science and policy. We do this by providing integrated analysis that supports decision makers.

Our five year strategy for 2010-2014 is founded on a wide-ranging consultation with partners and stakeholders around the world. The strategy takes a global outlook on the key environment and development challenges, and focuses on where SEI’s competence can best meet these challenges and advance sustainable development.
To this end, we have transformed SEI’s previous research programmes into four overarching themes:
• Reducing climate risk
• Managing environmental systems
• Transforming governance, and
• Rethinking development.
These themes will enable us to take our research to a new level.

The Stockholm Environment Institute has its headquarters at Stockholm and has founded six centres abroad – Bangkok, Boston, Dar es-Salaam, Oxford, Tallinn, York.

Address: Grimston House, University of York, Heslington, York, YO10 5DD, UK
