Created: 6/04/2019 - Updated: 6/25/2019


A comprehensive reference guide for community leaders and technical decision makers describing potential policy tools that could stimulate adaptive community planning and the implementation of the built environment. The Marquette Area Climate and Health Adaptation Guidebook - Volume II includes health-related metrics associated with each policy tool for users to track and evaluate their own planning activities.

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. 1 of the guidebook -- Stakeholder Engagement and Visual Design Imaging

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.
