New York State is already experiencing impacts as a result of climate change, and impacts are projected to increase with further warming. At the same time, the state has great adaptive capacity to address them. From the Great Lakes to Long Island Sound, from the Adirondacks to the Susquehanna Valley, climate change will affect the people and resources of New York State. Risks associated with climate change include greater incidence of heat stress caused by more frequent and intense heat waves; greater incidence of heavy rainfall events affecting food production, natural ecosystems, and water resources; and sea level rise leading to increased flooding in coastal areas. Climate change may exacerbate existing stresses on the people and activities of New York State and, in some cases, might provide opportunities such as enhancement of its water resources and agricultural potential. The goals of the Integrated Assessment for Effective Climate Change Adaptation Strategies in New York State (ClimAID) are to provide New York State decision- makers with cutting-edge information on its vulnerability to, as well as its ability to derive benefits from, climate change and to facilitate the development of adaptation strategies informed by both local experience and scientific knowledge. Further aims of ClimAID are to highlight areas related to climate change and New York State that warrant additional research and to identify data gaps and monitoring needs in order to help guide future efforts.
