EPA's Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation to Change website
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) hosts a searchable website for climate change impacts and adaptation information and resources. From the home page, impacts and adaptation information is organized by region or by sector, as well as additional adaptation resources are provided - categorized as adaptation overview, federal and EPA programs, and tools for public officials.
The searchable regions delineated include: Alaska, Islands, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, Southwest, Midwest and Great Plains. To begin exploration by sector, the user can choose from: Agriculture, Coasts, Ecosystems, Energy, Forests, Human Health, International, Society, Transportation and Water Resources.
The 'Adaptation Tools for Public Officials' section includes this clearinghouse, along with guidebooks, and sector-specific and region-specific tools and resources.
