uring our second year of existence, the Environment & Climate Change (EC2) program supported climate and environmental policy through scientific research , public policy analysis, stakeholder engagement and convenings with the goal of advancing climate action and sustainable businesses in Latin America. This year, we were pleased to launch our Sustainability Dispatch newsletter, published bimonthly with updates on our work and projects on the environment and climate change front.

Pacific Climate Forum T ogether with Scripps Institution of Oceanography and UC San Diego’s School of Global Policy and Strategy, IOA’s EC2 programhosted its first large, virtual conference, the Pacific Climate Forum , with a focus on nature-based solutions and coastal resilience, marine protected areas, green hydrogen, and water management. Over the course of three days, we hosted 10 different sessions and four scientific briefings. The Forum reached over 400 viewers from throughout the continent with the sessions also re-broadcast on UC-TV. A high-level summary proceedings was also published. As part of the Forum, we commissioned four videos highlighting the San Diego region’s innovative climate action projects and technologies in the areas of water resource management, marine protected areas, coastal resilience & nature based solutions and green hydrogen.
