Elena Saggioro

Research Fellow


My passion is summarising and translating the latest science into information to support effective climate change adaptation policymaking.

I analyse climate, environmental and socio-economic data to produce climate change risk assessments and inform adaptation planning. I have supported the decision-making process of several stakeholders, including regional and national public bodies and NGOs in the UK and overseas (Middle East and South-East Asia).

I enjoy using innovative analysis frameworks such as climate storylines, causal networks and Dynamic Adaptive Policy Pathways, which also facilitate communication of technical analysis and findings.


Lecturer in the Master module on “Causal Inference and Decision-making" (Meteorology), part of the MSc on Climate Change and Artificial Intelligence. Years: 2022/23, 2023/24.

Research projects

I am involved in a range of projects supporting the UN Environment Programme in developing climate change risk assessment and adaptation options analysis for countries in the Asia-Pacific region. For example, our work in Iraq, in the Euphrates-Tigris basin region, in Laos. I am also involved in climate adaptation projects involving nature and heritage areas in the UK.
