Identify Problems More

Coastal flooding Photo: Metropolitan Transportation Authority / Patrick Cashin

Coastal flooding due to sea level risk and storm surge will increasingly put lives and property at risk. Health, water quality, energy, infrastructure, and coastal ecosystems are all affected. More

Heat waves will become more frequent and intense, increasing heat-related illness and death and posing new challenges to the energy system, air quality, and agriculture. More

Heavy downpours or rain

Heavy downpours are increasing and are projected to increase further. These can lead to flooding and related impacts on water quality, infrastructure, and agriculture. More

Extreme weather can have a big impact in a short time. Climate models predict significant changes in the frequency and intensity of some extreme weather events over the coming decades. More

Investigate Solutions More

We can best address climate change, in the form of mitigation or adaptation, through careful, long-term planning and by considering lessons learned from the past. Solutions might be very broad or specific to a particular sector. Learn more about sector- specific solutions.

Mitigation is action taken to reduce the severity of climate change. Early mitigation will make it easier to adapt to climate change later on.


Adaptation refers to actions taken to prepare for climate change, helping to reduce adverse impacts or take advantage of beneficial impacts.
