Improving Environmental Quality & Economic Development
The Delta Institute is a laboratory for new ideas to improve environmental quality and promote community and economic development. As a nonprofit organization, the Delta Institute works primarily on projects in the Great Lakes region, where recovery from more than a century of industrialization and its consequences presents special challenges. In collaboration with community partners, environmental organizations, government and business, the Delta Institute explores new approaches to the policy and practice of environmental stewardship and sustainable development.
