Integrated Impact Assessment

The MINK (Missouri-Iowa-Nebraska-Kansas region) and McKenzie Basin studies are not integrated in the end-to-end sense but do represent major recent attempts at systematic integration across impact types and sectors to discern aggregate impacts of potential climate change. This link of the causal chain is the most difficult and the least advanced, and consequently a link on which the development of broad end-to-end assessments depends. Methodologically, these both build on a major earlier impact assessment by Smith and Tirpak (1989) and on more qualitative impact assessments by IPCC (1990) and COSEPUP (1991).

 

The next section is The MINK Study.
