Review for Pacific Institute for Studies in Development Environment and Securi, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been formally affiliated with the Pacific Institute for three years but aware of its outstanding contribution to understanding global water issues and the challenge of fostering a sustainable and equitable planet for well over a decade. The core strength of the Institute is its capacity to do innovative research in the context of human values--serving all humanity. The work has policy and community impact --achieving all three (research, policy, community impact) at the highest standard.

The organization is well run, collaborative, fiscally conservative and responsible, and creative in program design and goals.

The Pacific Institute is a model for non-profit research organizations desiring to make an impact.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Clone it--the world needs more of what it offers.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?


How much of an impact do you think this organization has?


Will you tell others about this organization?


How did you learn about this organization?

Role:  Board Member & I have had the honor of supporting a great ED during a time of growth.
