Great Lakes Coastal Resilience Planning Guide
The GLIN May Site of the Month is the Great Lakes Coastal Resilience Planning Guide. The Great Lakes Coastal Resilience Planning Guide is a new resource aimed at connected planners and coastal, floodplain and stormwater managers with the tools and data they need to account for natural hazards and climate change in the Great Lakes. The site presents case studies that identify or discuss specific coastal planning and management issues dealing with natural hazards and climate change at the local level.
The Planning Guide is a collaborative effort of the NOAA Digital Coast partnership and additional community-based partners from the Great Lakes. Led by the Association of State Floodplain Managers, the guide development partners include NOAA Coastal Services Center, TNC in the Great Lakes, the University of Wisconsin–Extension, Wisconsin and Minnesota Sea Grant as well as other Sea Grant programs in this region, NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab, and the American Planning Association, Coastal States Organization, National Association of Counties, and the National States Geographic Information Council.
GLIN links hundreds of agencies and organizations serving the Great Lakes region. You may not have visited them all yet, especially with new data and information and more partners coming online every month. Because partnership is the core of GLIN, each month we highlight the wealth of information available on the web site of one active GLIN partner. These partners work closely with the GLIN Project Team to ensure that their information is integrated into the regional network; in turn, these partners point back to relevant GLIN pages from
wherever appropriate on their own web sites so that people can easily find information about a topic of interest.
