New York State Climate Impacts Assessment:
Understanding and Preparing for Our Changing Climate |

New York State’s climate is changing. Rising temperatures, increased precipitation, rising sea levels, and more frequent and extreme weather events are happening now and projected to worsen. The New York State Climate Impacts Assessment, recently published at https://nysclimateimpacts.org, provides a science-based analysis of what to expect from climate change in New York.

In partnership with leading academic institutions, science organizations, community leaders, and others, New York State has undertaken a comprehensive research effort to enable decision-makers at all levels—from individual residents, businesses, and landowners to municipal and state government—to better understand the impacts of climate change and make informed choices about how to prepare for them. The assessment also strives to show how addressing climate change provides opportunities to enhance equity and reduce the vulnerability of those most at risk. A NYSERDA representative and Technical Work Group Co-chairs from the Buildings, the Human Health and Safety, and the Society and Economy sectors will provide an overview of the climate impacts assessment.

The webinar is provided with support from NYSERDA.
