We want people to understand how climate change will affect them where they live. We think this will help people prepare, save money, and protect the environment. We live in Indiana, and have started the Indiana Climate Change Impacts Assessment. This project has sought out stakeholders around the state to ask what climate information is most useful to them. Now researchers from many institutions are providing useful, actionable information to these groups. The project has nine working groups, including groups on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Come hear how we're helping Hoosiers!
