Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment & Adaptation Plan

Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment & Adaptation Plan

With support from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, Region Nine has created a Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment and Adaptation Plan to assess south central Minnesota’s vulnerability to climate change and create strategies for the region to adapt to climate change. Region Nine, working in tandem with a Climate Change Adaptation Task Force, identified eight top priority sectors to prioritize the planning process: agriculture, water, human health, energy, transportation, forests, ecosystems, and business and economy. The result of the planning process was real, actionable strategies that can be used as a guide to initiate discussions and begin a planning process in Region Nine communities.
