CDC Environmental Public Health Tracking Network (Climate Portal)
CDC’s Tracking Network uses data from many sources to track the effects of climate change. There are a number of indicators related to climate change and the Tracking Network includes data on drought, extreme heat, heat-related illness, precipitation and flooding, and wildfires, in addition to providing contextual information about communities, populations, vulnerabilities, and preparedness. These data can help local communities design interventions and better understand the possible health effects and risks to specific groups of people.
CDC Extreme Heat Media Toolkit
The CDC Extreme Heat Media Toolkit provides easily accessible media resources for members of the public, local health departments, and other organizations, assisting ongoing outreach efforts to those most vulnerable to extreme heat events.
US Government Open Data – Climate
Here you can find data related to climate change that can help inform and prepare America’s communities, businesses, and citizens. Initially, in this pilot phase, you can find data and resources related to coastal flooding, food resilience, water and ecosystem vulnerability. Over time, you will be able to find additional data and tools relevant to other important climate-related impacts, including risks to human health, and energy infrastructure. Please share your feedback.
US Climate Resilience Toolkit
The Climate Resilience Toolkit provides resources and a framework for understanding and addressing the climate issues that impact people and their communities.
