Established in 2012 SAERI is a research institute operating from its main base in Stanley, Falkland Islands. Originally a department within the Falkland Islands Government, it became a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) registered with the Charity Commission in England under Charity number 1173105. It is also entered on the register of Charities in the Falkland Islands.
In order to achieve our strategic aims, SAERI must be:
- Project optimised – by operating as a streamlined and efficient organisation through the Focal Areas;
- Fully funded – Falklands registered limited company is able to fund SAERI overheads, ensuring SAERI ultimately becomes fully financially independent from Falkland Islands Government and by ensuring that all grant applications (where possible) contain cost of seat coverage; and
- The holder of proprietary environmental knowledge of the South Atlantic – by continuing to provide the research expertise offered to date.
