Prepared for environmental change
The IU Grand Challenges initiative led by Distinguished Professor Ellen Ketterson will tackle major environmental threats to Hoosier health and economy.
Indiana University's second Grand Challenges initiative, Prepared for Environmental Change, will position Indiana to combat the growing threats caused by extreme and unpredictable weather patterns and environmental changes that result.
The soon-to-be-launched collaborative Environmental Resilience Institute will develop Indiana-specific projections and informed solutions. It will arm policymakers with the tools they need to protect agriculture, public health, and the economy from the impacts of environmental change while maintaining valuable ecological services. Ellen Ketterson, Distinguished Professor of Biology, will lead the research team that will build Indiana-specific projections of environmental change to equip governments, businesses, and community groups to respond with the right investments in agriculture, industry, infrastructure, and public health and safety.
