Project leaders collaborated with two Michigan communities, Benton Harbor and Marquette, to determine vulnerabilities, strengths, and knowledge related to climate change. The project goal was to make these communities more resilient in the future by incorporating adaptation strategies into local land use master plans.
In the video below, Claire Layman of Michigan State University Extension discussed this project during the 2013 GLISA Symposium.

Marquette incorporated climate adaptation strategies into their master plan, which was in the process of being updated. The Twin Cities Area Transportation Study incorporated the findings of their collaboration with MSUE and GLISA into their transportation planning.
