Significant policy actions in the past year create a new context for CLEE’s work and provide hope that systemic transformation is possible. At a federal level, the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Inflation Reduction Act provide historic levels of investment for climate projects. In California, California Governor Newsom signed a suite of bills this fall that further solidify the state’s position as a leader in the fight against climate change. The breakthrough agreement on a new “Loss and Damage” Fund at COP27 breathed new life into the hope of finding equitable solutions to the climate crisis on the global level. These policy changes have provided new avenues for the Center to engage with policymakers and other stakeholders and have helped to increase the relevance and applicability of our work. 

The Berkeley Law students provide incredible hope and confidence that our future is in good hands. These bright and motivated young people are the next generation of leaders in the field of environmental law and policy, and we are proud to support and guide them as they develop the skills and knowledge, they need to make a real difference in the world. 

We are grateful for the continued support of our partners, donors, and other stakeholders, and welcome their continued engagement as we work together to build a more sustainable and equitable future for all. Thank you for your interest in our work and for your commitment to addressing the urgent environmental crises of our time.
