A Community Self-Assessment to Address Climate Change Readiness

Minnesota Sea Grant

The purpose of this assessment tool is to provide community leaders, administrators, planners, engineers, public work directors, and natural resource managers with a simple method in the form of a checklist divided into nine different categories to review their community’s particular vulnerabilities to climate trends and to identify priority areas to focus on through planning and projects. The goal of this tool is to help communities in the Great Lakes region identify and address vulnerabilities through education and planning to help reduce the impacts and costs of climate change-related damage through adaptation policies and procedures.
Here is a newsletter article about the assessment: Getting Real About Climate Change.
The assessment is currently facilitated in-person by Minnesota Sea Grant Extension Specialists.
