Great Lakes Adaptation Assessment for Cities (GLAA-C)


GLAA-C is a project that seeks to strengthen the science and decision-making for more effective urban adaptation to climate change in the Great Lakes region. The project, which is led by the University’s Graham Environmental Sustainability Institute, teams researchers with city decision makers in Great Lakes cities in order to identify adaptation needs, opportunities for action, and relative costs of response options to climate change. The programs developed for six cities, including Ann Arbor and Flint in Michigan, will include implementation steps which will be able to be universalized and replicated in other cities in the region.
