Project Title & Description
Working with Rural Great Lakes Communities to Implement Climate Change Strategies
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 112-74. The Model Forest Policy Program will work with four communities located in rural areas of the Great Lakes basin to conduct climate risk assessments, to develop customized adaptation plans, and to implement those adaptation plans to protect forest, water, and economic assets. The project will also connect the four participating communities to regional and national climate change adaptation networks.
