What ERIT can do for you
ERIT is an interactive resource to help local governments in Indiana and beyond effectively deliver services to their communities even as the climate changes. Decision makers can create an integrated package of information tailored specifically to their community and their needs.
The pages in the left navigation walk users through the process of preparing their communities for climate change impacts. These resources contain information about: the risks posed by climate change; relevant adaptation strategies; case studies illustrating how other communities have successfully adapted to those risks; tools to replicate their successes; and funding opportunities. Users will also find contact information for people who can provide more information about specific projects and resources.
ERIT has a special emphasis on Midwestern communities and on small to mid-sized communities in both rural and urban areas.
Description of the video:
ERIT was developed through a partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and is adapted from USEPA’s Adaptation Resource Center (ARC-X) to present information particularly relevant to communities in Indiana and the Midwest. Indiana University's continuing partnership with the USEPA will ensure that ERIT provides the most current information both nationally and regionally. We appreciate USEPA’s support for this important project.
