The Policy Institute is a bold new initiative that supports collaborative engagement at a critical time for decision makers. Governments at every level are under intensifying pressure to promote a healthy, growing economy while simultaneously improving environmental quality, increasing efficiency, diversifying the energy supply, creating greater resiliency to energy disruptions, and responding to climate change-despite shrinking capacity and expertise.
The UC Davis Policy Institute for Energy, Environment and the Economy (Policy Institute) leverages world-class university expertise and engages directly with decision-makers to deliver credible, relevant, and timely information and analysis to inform better energy and environmental policy.
Local governments are at the front line for planning and response to the impacts of a changing climate and play a critical role in protecting communities from existing and growing hazards. Through its Climate Adaptation Initiative, the Policy Institute is supporting these governments by serving as a bridge between the academic community and regional adaptation efforts.
