Portrait of Katie Peters

Katie Peters has been a Senior Research Fellow at the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) since 2011. Leading ODI’s portfolio on the intersection of natural hazard-related disasters, climate change and conflict, her research focuses on disaster risk reduction in fragile and conflict affected states, the relationship between climate change and conflict, and the securitisation of climate change.

Throughout her time at ODI, Katie has been Deputy Director of a Knowledge Manager for a £100+ million resilience investment, Director of the Advancing Integration initiative, and principle researcher for a multitude of policy-orientated research projects aiming to advance our collective understanding of the intersection of disasters, resilience, poverty, climate change, security, fragility and conflict.

Over the last 15 years Katie has provided technical advice to the UK, Australia, Switzerland and Japan, worked with a range of UN agencies and the World Bank, coordinated over 120 non-governmental organisations through the BRACED network, and worked in the field for NGOs such CARE International and Saferworld – across East Africa, the Sahel and South and South-East Asia.
