University of Michigan, Michigan State University award grants for Great Lakes climate change research
Date:11/15/2012

tained in the Chicago Climate Action Plan.

  • "Climate information to support vulnerability and risk assessment for the Great Lakes basin municipalities." Lead investigator: Chandra Sharma, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority. This project will create access to credible, locally relevant climate data for several communities near Lake Ontario in the Region of Peel, one of the most populous and urbanized areas of the Canadian Great Lakes basin. The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority will recommend specific strategies and practices relevant to the regions studied.

  • "Making climate-resilient communities through a watershed approach." Lead investigator: Rebecca Esselman, Huron River Watershed Council. Current efforts to create climate-resilient communities within the watershed involve understanding various climate scenarios, identifying best management practices and analyzing case studies on adaptation strategies. The project will build on these tools to broaden the geographic participation of the watershed, support participants with priority tools and strategies, and conduct an in-depth case study to develop adaptive capacity in the basin.

  • "How sensitive are agricultural best management practices and models to climate change? Framing key issues and uncertainties with expert opinion." Lead investigator: Kimberly Hall, The Nature Conservancy. This project will assess the vulnerabilities of current best management practices related to climate change to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and transparency of agriculturally focused conservation practices in the Great Lakes basin.
