Who we are

ASRA is a unique initiative catalyzing the development of practical tools decision-makers need to effectively cope with and navigate polycrisis. We are home to a global network of transdisciplinary experts and thought-leaders who are radically rethinking risk in order to improve policy and decision-making to the benefit of nature and humanity.
