Online tool to help Great Lakes region plan for climate impacts

A new interactive tool from the U-M Climate Center helps cities in the Great Lakes region to better anticipate and prepare for challenges associated with a changing climate.

The online Cities Impact Assessment Tool is part of an effort to provide practical information and resources to support climate adaptation in the region.

The new planning support tool, which is available at no cost to end-users, includes three core components: climate histories and projections for divisions throughout the nine regional states and provinces; an interactive climate-peer networking map; and a searchable database of more than 500 climate adaptation strategies informed by existing municipal plans. Users can search by geographic location or by issues of concern.
