Pacific Institute

The Pacific Institute works to find real-world solutions to problems like water shortages, habitat destruction, global warming, and environmental injustice. Based in Oakland, California, the institute conducts research, publishes reports, recommends solutions, and works with decision makers, advocacy groups, and the public to change policy.
Since its founding in 1987, it has become known for independent, innovative thinking that cuts across traditional areas of study. This interdisciplinary approach not only helps to make connections that others miss, it also enables the Institute to bring opposing groups together to forge effective real-world solutions.
