Institute profile:

Environmental Science at the University of Leeds is organised in three Schools, each recognised as carrying out research of 'world leading' and 'internationally excellent' standard in the 2008 RAE (Research Assessment Exercise) and ranked in the top five UK institutions for research power. The Sustainability Research Institute (SRI, part of the School of Earth & Environment) is the largest grouping of environmental social scientists in the UK and a centre of excellence for participatory and policy-relevant research, conducting interdisciplinary environmental analysis for sustainable land management (SLM). The River Basin Processes and Management research group (RBPM, part of School of Geography) has extensive research experience in Europe and Africa through a series of EU-funded projects and bodies like UNDP/GEF, Royal Society and UK Government Research Councils.
