Climate Change Research
EPA research improves knowledge of the impacts of climate change on human health and the environment. The scientific information and tools can be used by communities to effectively, equitably and sustainably tackle the climate crisis. Climate Change Research is focused in the following areas:
- Intervention – Research is developing ways that communities and individuals can take action to address the immediate climate threats created by wildfires, floods, droughts and other extreme events, with a focus on the most vulnerable and underserved populations.
- Prevention – Research is providing evidence-based information and resources for all communities to better prepare and respond to the impacts of climate change with long-term approaches to protect public health.
- Transformation – Research is identifying and quantifying the public health and environmental benefits of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and providing tools and resources to develop a more sustainable energy system, while ensuring that the benefits are distributed equitably and improve the lives of all Americans.
