Welcome to a new year at YCELP

As we settle into a new school year, things are buzzing at the Yale Center for Environmental Law and Policy. Three Research Assistants are helping to keep us on track, and we are thrilled to have Stephanie Ratte, Alessandra Wingerter, and Dena Adler, all graduate students with FES, working hard on our various projects.

Our annual board meeting wrapped up on October 1st and we have launched into a year-long strategic planning process. Existing projects like the Environmental Performance Index and the Climate Dialogue continue to occupy much of our time, and we are exploring new partnerships on climate resilience, international environmental conventions, and western environmental issues. Within a few months, we expect to have a robust research agenda in full swing. Get on our mailing list by emailing ycelp@yale.edu and stay in touch!
