Los Angeles Conservation Corps

The LA Conservation Corps is working with the Berggruen Institute and Studio-MLA to develop a series of test planting areas on our property to research drought- and fire-resistant plant species as well as planting and irrigation techniques for brush clearance zones. Key learnings from this initiative will inform the Institute’s planting plan in fuel modification zones as well as other mountainous wildfire areas.

UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs

The Berggruen Institute is partnering with The UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs to advance global understanding of what makes governments effective.

The collaboration has led to the Berggruen Governance Index, which evaluates countries based on their quality of political and administrative governance. For policymakers and policy analysts, the Index serves as a much-needed tool for grasping how governance relates to social and economic progress in various political contexts.
