2 Earth Institute Centers Join Forces

The Earth Institute today announced that beginning Oct. 1, the Center for Global Health and Economic Development (CGHED) would migrate its staff and projects to the Earth Institute’s Center on Globalization and Sustainable Development.

“The merger of CGHED’s health, education and other development professionals with CGSD’s economic development team will strengthen the Earth Institute’s ability to undertake cross-sector research, education and policy projects,” said Professor Jeffrey Sachs, director of the Earth Institute. “I am grateful to Professor Glenn Denning, director of CGSD, for building the collaboration across the economic and social sectors, and providing strong support for our many international development programs.”
