A community is a system of interconnected parts that rely on one another. Climate change has the potential to affect our local ecosystem, public health, infrastructure, and livelihoods.

Impacts from climate change are already being felt in Virginia, from rising sea levels on the coast to increasingly severe flash floods and heat waves inland. In the future, we can expect increased impacts of climate change to include shifts in local temperature, precipitation, and seasonal patterns, as well as the ripple effects of environmental impacts outside of our region.

Though our region’s direct risks are lower than many other areas, preparing for the shocks and stressors brought on by a warming world will reduce the harmful impacts on our community. The more we work together to prepare for these impacts, the more resilient our community will be.

Below, in the “topics” section, you will find information introducing some of the challenges associated with climate change.
