Wisconsin Initiative on Climate Change (WICCI)
The Wisconsin Initiative on Climate Change Impacts (WICCI) assesses and anticipates climate change impacts on specific Wisconsin natural resources, ecosystems and regions; evaluates potential effects on industry, agriculture, tourism and other human activities; and develops and recommends adaptation strategies that can be implemented by businesses, farmers, public health officials, municipalities, resource managers and other stakeholders.
The interactive map allows you to ask a simple question: what climates today most resemble the future climates projected for my location? Answers to this question can help us adapt and plan for the consequences of global warming. For example, farmers can use this website to identify possible crop types and hybrids that may do well in Wisconsin's future climates, while epidemiologists and land managers can use this information to identify diseases and pests that may be poised to enter Wisconsin.
