Abstract

A project to build climate adaptive capacity at the local level by integrating public health considerations into existing community and climate adaptation planning initiatives, the Marquette Area Climate and Health Adaptation Guidebook - Volume I establishes the community’s concerns and priorities related to climate and health as expressed by community stakeholder groups. It also details current and potential future images of vulnerable locations in Marquette and surrounding areas to visualize how the built environment could be redesigned to address these climate-related public health concerns.

The guidebook is structured in three volumes. Each is intended to stand alone as a resource but also build upon each other to provide a detailed accounting of the process and results.

Read Vol. 2 of the guidebook -- Policy and Metric Recommendations

The Marquette Area Climate and Health Adaptation Guidebook is the result of work in coordination with the Michigan Climate and Health Adaptation Program (MICHAP) of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Climate and Health Program. The Guidebooks are the work of Michigan State University (MSU) School of Planning, Design and Construction and MSU Extension and do not necessarily represent the official views of MDHHS.
