In December 2015, a “State of Climate Change Science in the Great Lakes Basin: A Focus on Climatological, Hydrologic and Ecological Effects” report was released, which synthesizes the state of climate change impacts in the Great Lakes Basin. The report, and companion database of all the literature reviewed for the report, were developed by the Ontario Climate Consortium, the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, and McMaster University, with support from Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Environment and Climate Change Canada, and in consultation with Climate Change Impacts Annex Subcommittee.

The report supports the delivery of various commitments under the Climate Change Impacts Annex and will be used to inform future work of the Climate Change Impacts Annex Subcommittee.
