During 2021, the debilitating impacts of the global water crisis, exacerbated by climate change, made bold headlines—with risks to people, nature, and economies. For the Pacific Institute, 2021 was one of the boldest years yet to provide solutions to the world’s most pressing water challenges. Despite ongoing COVID challenges, the Pacific Institute continued record-setting growth, putting innovative research, tools, and policy recommendations into the hands of those with the power to transform water systems. The Pacific Institute also embraced an inflection point of growth—evolving into an increasingly global virtual organization positioned for further expansion and impact.
