Featured Research Initiatives

    For more than 35 years, the East-West Center and the Korea Development Institute have organized annual meetings of authors and published book-length studies on economic issues facing countries around the world.

  • Addressing Drought in Hawaii and the US-Affiliated Pacific Islands

    In Hawai‘i and the US Affiliated Pacific Islands, East-West Center researchers are working with collaborators at the US Department of Agriculture Forest Service and the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa to pilot Drought Knowledge Exchange projects in which researchers collaborate with land managers to co-produce site-specific drought information. Improving our understanding of drought and having readily available and relevant drought-related information can increase the drought resilience and response of land managers, helping to reduce wildfire risk and protect threatened and endangered species.
