Review for Pacific Institute for Studies in Development Environment and Securi, Oakland, CA, USA
The Pacific Institute is one of the most well-known and respected sources of environment and sustainable development research and policy analysis. Pacific Institutes' legislative role is absolutely vital as a non-biased source to inform the public and the private sector of their impact on the environment. With many needed changes in the world, Pacific Institute is created SPECIFICALLY to help find SOLUTIONS for environmental injustices, especially when the affected communities' (such as the Central Californians affected by the nitrate contamination in their drinking water) voices aren't being heard. THANK YOU Pacific Institute.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
becoming informed about environmental injustices such as the nitrate contamination in the San Joaquin Valley, and taking own strides to reduce personal water use and to inform others of these issues.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
increase federal funding so PI will be able to maintain unbiased, reliable reports without having to rely on private funding.
