Unger Vetlesen Professor of Earth and Climate Sciences, led the team that made the first scientific prediction of the El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon in the 1980s. Columbia is at the forefront of research on climate and climate applications, and is supported by an extensive network of research units and faculty. Drawing on the broad educational and research facilities of Columbia University, the M.A. Program in Climate and Society combines elements of established programs in Earth Sciences, Earth Engineering, International Relations, Politics, Sociology, and Economics, with unique classes in inter-disciplinary applications specially designed for the program’s students. At the end of twelve intensive months of study, graduates will be prepared to address environmental issues from positions in government, business, and nongovernmental organizations. Some may wish to continue their academic careers in the social or natural sciences. For more information on the M.A. Program in Climate and Society, please see

Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) Launches Forestation Programme: Launched in April 2005, the program seeks to support and encourage the forestation of open and denuded areas through the planting of high value fruit trees and other useful plants.
