Our climate shapes our lives. The ways we build our roads, manage our farms, move our water, and use energy are all influenced by our unique Indiana climate. But our climate has been changing, and it will continue to change in ways that affect our productivity, our safety, and our livelihoods. We need to know what climate change means for Indiana.
Coordinated by the Purdue Climate Change Research Center (PCCRC), scientists and decision makers from across the state have worked together to develop a series of reports that describe how a changing climate affects state and local interests. The Indiana Climate Change Impacts Assessment (IN CCIA) aims to provide the best, data-driven, scientific information needed to support a strong economy, thriving communities, and healthy individuals.
Report topics include: climate, water resources, health, energy, forest and urban ecosystems, aquatic ecosystems, tourism and recreation, agriculture, and infrastructure. Additional details are available at www.IndianaClimate.org.
