The Jameel Observatory focuses on using data and evidence to prepare for and act on environmental shocks as well as those impacts of climate change and variability that threaten human and environmental well-being.


With a special focus on low and middle-income countries, we work at the interface of climate, natural disasters, agricultural and food systems, and health.

We particularly emphasise the need to incorporate local as well as scientific knowledge to prepare and act in anticipation of environmental shocks.
