Established at The Fletcher School, Tufts University in 1992 to meet the growing need for international environmental leaders, the Center for International Environment and Resource Policy (CIERP) develops innovative approaches to shifting global development onto a path that is more environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable. We analyze how economic and social activities impact the environment, and design strategies for meeting human needs without straining the planet’s resources. CIERP advances theory, turns it into practice, educates the international community, and prepares students for careers as global leaders and citizens. View a PDF of our brochure.
CIERP is directed by Kelly Sims Gallagher, Associate Professor of Energy & Environmental Policy.
