Climate Change and Adaptation in the Great Lakes


In January 2017 the WQB produced a Climate Change and Adaption in the Great Lakes project summary that focused on the need for coordinated binational action in developing a climate adaption and resiliency strategy for the Great Lakes.

The WQB undertook follow-up work to explore ways to advance leadership and action toward binational cooperation on climate adaptation and resilience strategies.  The outcomes of this engagement work re-affirmed the Board’s 2017 recommendations and provided some additional insights and observations, which are summarized in the 2019 Climate Adaptation and Resilience – Project Summary.
