Climate Change Impacts and Risk Analysis (CIRA)
Understanding Disproportionate Risks of Climate Change
EPA’s “Climate Change and Social Vulnerability” report quantifies the risks of climate change to socially vulnerable populations in the U.S.
Quantifying the impacts of climate change in the U.S.
The Climate Change Impacts and Risk Analysis (CIRA) project quantifies the physical effects and economic damages of climate change in the United States (U.S.). Using detailed models of sectoral impacts (e.g., human health, infrastructure, and water resources), the project seeks to quantify and monetize how risks, impacts, and damages may change in response to greenhouse gas mitigation and adaptation actions.
