The New York Climate Change Science Clearinghouse (NYCCSC) is a gateway for policymakers, local planners, and the public to identify and access documents, data, websites, tools, and maps relevant to climate change adaptation and mitigation across New York State. The goal of the NYCCSC is to support scientifically sound and cost-effective decision-making. The vision is a dynamic site where users can find information in multiple ways, including through interactive tools that use data from different sources.
The development of the NYCCSC was initiated and supported by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). The project team includes Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM), Cornell University’s Mann Library, the Northeast Regional Climate Center (NRCC), the State University of New York Environmental Sciences and Forestry’s (SUNY ESF) Department of Forest and Natural Resource Management, and the Northeastern Regional Climate Services Director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
