On June 27, 2008, forty representatives from Great Lakes foundations, non‐governmental organizations, agencies, and universities, convened in Flint, Michigan for a one‐day workshop titled “Preparing for Climate Change in the Great Lakes Region.” The workshop was sponsored by the Mott Foundation, Joyce Foundation, Kresge Foundation, the Great Lakes Fishery Trust, and Michigan Sea Grant. The objectives of the workshop were to:

  • Identify policy changes that will enable Great Lakes communities to adapt to climate change and protect major ecosystems.
  • Identify strategies for implementing those policy changes.
