Climate Change History

As of 2010, the state did not report any climate change adaptation planning efforts for wetlands. In 2013, the Indiana State Department of Agriculture supported the development of a new system to restore Midwest wetlands to reduce massive floods and aid crops in a changing climate. The tool was developed at Oregon State University and Indiana University—Purdue University. The tool, called WRESTORE, is a web-based, user-friendly, interactive, transparent, and participatory decision support system for helping land owners, government agencies, policy makers, planners, and other stakeholders design a distributed system of conservation practices in their watersheds.
