Project Summary/Overview

In 2006, former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley established a Climate Change Task Force (Task Force) that was charged with evaluating the potential impacts of climate change and developing an action plan for the city. After conducting impacts, economic costs, and risk assessments, the city released the Chicago Climate Action Plan (CCAP) in late 2008. The plan functions much like a roadmap for climate action with five overarching strategies, including nine adaptation actions. Implemented adaptation actions thus far include integration of future climate scenarios into stormwater management as well as the development of green urban design projects to reduce heat and flooding.
