The Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions' annual report highlights work to help decision makers create timely, effective and economically practical solutions to the world’s critical environmental challenges.
2020 Annual Report
The Nicholas Institute's 15th year always promised to be one of its most significant.
A variety of projects either got underway or were scheduled to be completed in 2020 to help policy makers address pressing environmental and energy challenges at the local, national, and global levels. Meanwhile, the Nicholas Institute sought to deepen partnerships with Duke’s world-class scholars and forge new ones while finding creative ways to prepare the next generation of leaders.
As it has for nearly everyone, the twin issues of the COVID-19 pandemic and the movement for racial equity have changed not just how the Nicholas Institute works, but what it is working on.
Our 2020 annual report highlights ways that the Nicholas Institute is meeting the current moment.
