The Veni is a 250,000 Euro research grant, targeted at outstanding researchers who have recently obtained their PhD. Over the next four years, Elco will work on improving resilience of global trade to climate extremes. His research project will quantify the vulnerability of global trade to climate extremes, and provides guidance in the development of successful adaptation measures. To do so, a first-of-its-kind high-resolution disaster impact modelling framework will be developed, designed to estimate disruptions in global trade, integrating geospatial global databases and supply-chain impact assessment models.
