The Earth Institute Annual Donor Report 2009
Welcome to the online version of the Earth Institute’s donor report for 2009.
We continue to work toward a sustainable Earth, and this report highlights some of our exciting projects in research, policy and education.
It has been a productive year. We helped establish a new graduate program in development practice, made advances in the sequestration of climate-altering carbon dioxide, addressed the decline of freshwater availability in India, improved access to health care in the Millennium Villages of Africa and much more.
Thank you to all of the donors, students, faculty, staff and others who continue to help make this world a better, more sustainable place.
