Oregon Climate Assessments

The Oregon Legislative Assembly charges OCCRI with biennial assessment of the state of climate change science, including biological, physical, and social science, as it relates to Oregon and the likely effects of climate change on the state.

The Oregon Climate Assessments reflect the generous contributions and expertise of OCCRI’s extensive network of university, public, and private partners. Content is peer-reviewed, and often serves as technical input to the quadrennial National Climate Assessments.

Oregon Climate Assessments were released in 2010, 2013, 2017, 2019, and 2021.
