Great Lakes Climate Needs: A Guide for Implementation


Guide to climate education needs based on the 2011 Great Lakes Sea Grant Climate Network Logic Models


The Great Lakes Sea Grant Climate Network Logic Models were developed in 2011 to help guide the work of Sea Grant climate specialists, both within their states and within the region. The logic models help to coordinate climate work between different Sea Grant agencies by listing current regional projects, and set consistent priorities for efforts across the Great Lakes states.

A 2012 needs assessment (NOAA Technical Memorandum GLERL-158) further refined Great Lakes climate change information needs, and focused specifically on the top 10 needs of professional planners, stormwater managers, natural resource managers, public health officials, and emergency managers. Given the projected impacts of climate change in the region – increased extreme precipitation, associated increases in flooding, but also drought and increased heat waves – these officials are one important stakeholder group in the climate adaptation process.

While many areas of need are already addressed by projects included in the logic models, four areas could especially benefit from additional work: financial resources and guidance, climate change data, understanding climate impacts, and ecosystem research and monitoring. If you are interested in learning more about ongoing or future projects, or if you would like to suggest a collaboration, please contact the Sea Grant program listed after the project of interest, or your home state’s Sea Grant program.
