Change matters...

The Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change (IC3) brings together experts across disciplines to consider the impacts of climate change from every angle. A fresh approach, built on smart science, working toward achievable solutions – because at Waterloo, change really does matter.

Established in 2008, ICseeks to advance research on climate change through an interdisciplinary approach: understanding the physical basis of climate change, its impacts on biophysical and human systems, and adaptation and mitigation strategies in response to changes.
