CIERP logo_webBlueFletcher’s Center for International Environment and Resource Policy (CIERP) just celebrated a birthday — its 20th!  To mark this milestone in the history of environment study at the School, CIERP compiled a list of some of the highlights of its work, which I’m featuring today.  Also of note:  The Center has a new director.  Prof. Kelly Sims Gallagher, a Fletcher alum and current member of the faculty, will lead CIERP as it enters its second 20 years.
