Complex Challenges Require an Integrated Response

No single discipline can solve the complex environmental challenges we face—climate change and biodiversity loss, health and economic disruption—at the pace required. By identifying productive connections across disciplines, the Planetary Solutions Project can accelerate the development of approaches that work.

Solutions to Match the Scale of the Problems

At Yale, we are developing ways to improve life now, and for the next 10, 20, and 100 years. We must reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, save species from extinction, create and deploy affordable clean energy, and enact political, economic, health, and legal changes that establish just, equitable systems across the globe.

Insights from One Field Drive Breakthroughs in Another

By bringing Yale’s exceptional capabilities together, we can make progress on the most daunting challenges human civilization has ever faced. We are exploring artificial photosynthesis to turn sunlight into liquid fuel. We are using genetic techniques to help threatened species adapt to rapid environmental changes. We are identifying nature-based methods of capturing carbon. And we are integrating diverse data streams to build policy tools supporting global climate action.
