On July 25, 2023 Inland Action met with Rick Bishop, Co-director of the Inland Center for Sustainable Development. The Inland Center for Sustainable Development (ICSD) is one of three research centers housed within the School of Public Policy at the University of California, Riverside.
The center has three important goals as they relate to research and service:
- To coordinate sustainability efforts in land use, transportation, infrastructure, energy, water, public health, emergency response and resource management agencies.
- To serve as a convening body to promote collaboration among decision-makers and practitioners in determining the best course of action for the region.
- To facilitate, both within ICSD’s membership and with policy makers in the region, the exchange of information, including cutting-edge and locally relevant research initiatives, best practices, information management systems and education efforts.
