The Pacific Institute works to create a healthier planet and sustainable communities. They conduct interdisciplinary research and partner with stakeholders to produce solutions that advance environmental protection, economic development, and social equity - in California, nationally, and internationally. The Institute aims to find real-world solutions to problems like water shortages, habitat destruction, global warming, and environmental injustice. Based in Oakland, California, they conduct research, publish reports, recommend solutions, and work with decision makers, advocacy groups, and the public to change policy.
The Institute's Climate Impacts and Adaptation Initiative is dedicated to studying the impacts of climate change, informing policymakers, and creating real-world solutions to slow or reverse this threat. The Initiative addresses the challenge of understanding and adapting to the unavoidable impacts of climate change related to water resources and national and international security.
