Facing Our Future - Adapting to Connecticut's Changing Climate

In March 2009, the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection published a series of eight sector-based reports; each defining current climate impacts, actions the Department is taking, and recommended actions to foster adaptation at local and regional levels. The eight reports address the sectors of: Biodiversity, Fisheries, Forestry, Infrastructure, Coastal, Recreation, Water Resources and Wildlife.

Subsequent to the release of these reports, Connecticut produced its first statewide impact assessment: The Impacts of Climate Change on Connecticut Agriculture, Infrastructure, Natural Resources, and Public Health.
