Understanding and Protecting the Planet is one of UC San Diego’s four strategic research themes.

It focuses on communicating about environmental change, creating solutions to enhance the resilience of our society, and recommending policy changes.

The inaugural UP Summit held on May 17, 2018 brought together UC San Diego researchers and community leaders to discuss research priorities that can inform environmental and policy solutions and identify opportunities for collaboration.
