Sustainability Policy

Development policies put in place today directly affect the resources and environmental quality available to future generations. 

Research on sustainable transportation, urban sprawl and mixed-use development, and renewable energy illustrate some of the sustainability policy projects at GWIPP.

In addition, the Shapiro Policy Research Scholar Program supports sustainability policy research by our affiliates across campus.
