EcoAdapt and the Natural Resources Defense Council are launching a project to assess the state of climate adaptation planning and implementation for climate-related threats to public health in 16 states, including Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin. The states selected for this first phase of the survey include a cross-section of areas in which NRDC is already engaged in climate and clean energy advocacy work, and include states participating in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Building Resilience Against Climate Effects (BRACE) Framework. The results of this assessment will include case studies and a summary report of findings that will be shared on CAKE and other partner websites.
