Integrated Assessment for Effective Climate Change Strategies in New York State

The “Integrated Assessment for Effective Climate Change Adaptation Strategies in New York State" project was undertaken by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) ClimAID science team.   The vulnerability assessment considers the effects of climate change on New York, including rising sea levels, increasing temperatures, and changing weather patterns. The project draws upon both local experience and scientific knowledge by involving numerous stakeholders in eight key sectors: agriculture, communications, ecosystems, energy, ocean coastal zones, public health, transportation, and water resources.
