Climate Change

Extreme weather events. Rising sea levels. Disruption to the food supply. The current and potential effects of climate change on human health, agriculture, and economic growth are in the headlines on an almost daily basis. IGCC’s research in this area helps to elucidate the complex interplay of factors such as higher temperatures, adaptive behaviors, and economic and policy decision-making in both the long and short term.
