The aim of IED is to analyze individual and collective decisions in the context of natural resource utilization and environmental problems. Furthermore, IED strives to support private and political decision makers to achieve sustainability in the face of today’s risks and uncertainties. Management issues affecting climate change present a prominent example of decisions that have traditionally been made on a very weak basis of knowledge about future states of the world. IED focuses on research as well as on teaching at different levels.

The uncertainty in climate change and our energy future remains and is likely to remain even with more research. If policy makers are to do anything about global warming, they will have to make decisions now, in spite of the uncertainty. At the Climate Decision Making Center (CDMC), researchers are studying the limits in our understanding of climate change, its impacts, and the strategies that might be perused to mitigate and adapt to change. CDMC investigators are creating, illustrating, and evaluating decision strategies and tools for policy makers that incorporate such uncertainties. Through the spin-off CCSReg project, we also have collaboration with the Univeristy of Minnesota, the Vermont Law School and the law firm of VanNess Feldman.

The Breakthrough Institute is a small think tank with big ideas. Breakthrough is committed to creating a new progressive politics, one that is large, aspirational, and asset-based. America needs a new social contract, one that provides greater security around issues like health care, retirement, employment and education. These social issues cannot be seen as separate from environmental issues since they, and economic prosperity generally, are the ground upon which ecological concern depends.

NRDC was founded in 1970 by a group of law students and attorneys at the forefront of the environmental movement. NRDC lawyers helped write some of America's bedrock environmental laws. With the support of our members and online activists, NRDC works to solve the most pressing environmental issues we face today: curbing global warming, getting toxic chemicals out of the environment, moving America beyond oil, reviving our oceans, saving wildlife and wild places, and helping China go green.
