Georgia State University Joins Project To Address Statewide Climate Impacts
Georgia State University has joined the Georgia Climate Project (GCP), a statewide consortium working to improve understanding of climate impacts and solutions in Georgia.
The GCP includes colleges and universities across the state who are bringing their strengths in research and teaching to improve understanding of the physical, economic and social impacts of climate change in Georgia, and the choices the state has for the future.
“Our world-class faculty are tackling some of the toughest problems related to climate change,” said Dan Deocampo, professor of geosciences and associate dean in the College of Arts and Sciences. “This includes heat-related health impacts, urban water and sustainability, risk assessment, agricultural community perception, carbon pricing and offsets, environmental justice, popular perceptions of climate change and policy interventions.”
