Bespoke research & analysis

Our Aotearoa NZ Catastrophe Resilience Project (NZCat) runs Nov 2022 – Nov 2023.

Adapt Research performs independent and bespoke research. We aim to deliver high-quality evidence that informs strategic questions about health, technology and global catastrophic risk.

We specialise in producing evidence-based resources, reports, and research papers and have a strong record managing and executing the research process from planning to publication.

Our research director Matt is a medically qualified senior researcher with a PhD in philosophy.

We’re particularly interested in work on island refuges for mitigating catastrophic risks and the process of national risk assessment. A current major project examines New Zealand’s resilience to nuclear winter-type scenarios.
