Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I am excited to announce the publication of the Pacific Institute’s Fifteenth Anniversary Report.
The report details the work of our various programs, covers their successes and results, and offers history and background about some of the most pressing challenges we face: climate change, threats to our water resources, terrorism and conflict, the perils of globalization, and the importance of environmental justice.
Our research has won us acclaim in many different fields. But even friends of the Pacific Institute are often surprised at the wide range
We also want to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to our colleagues and supporters: You’ve played an important part in our growth and success and we thank you for it. You may also notice that our report and this cover letter feature a new logo and “look.” Although we have updated our appearance, rest assured that our values, mission, and vision are unchanged.of work we do and our many accomplishments over the years. We hope that readers will come away with a better understanding of both the issues at hand, our work on various subjects, and the Pacific Institute as a whole.
On the occasion of our fifteenth anniversary – and despite the ominous events in the wider world – we’ve had time to reflect, plan, and celebrate. And although we do not know what future events will bring, I remain optimistic that open, independent research, innovative and original analysis, and advocacy driven by science instead of ideology can lead to a better world for all.
Peter H. Gleick
