An analysis of surface water impacts and ecological concerns related to hydraulic fracturing.
The Integrated Assessment Center at the Graham Sustainability Institute brings together interdisciplinary research teams, decision-makers, and key stakeholders to develop pathways toward real solutions. With support from the Integrated Assessment Center, teams are working in Ghana and Peru to address major water issues and their impacts on health.
To better understand heat-related intervention strategies used by four cities in the nation, this study presents the results from 73 interviews. Representatives from government and non-governmental organizations, including public health, general social services, emergency management, meteorology, and the environmental planning sectors were interviewed. Those interviewed represented cities selected for their diverse demographics, climates, and climate adaptation strategies, including Detroit, MI; New York City, NY; Philadelphia, PA; and Phoenix, AZ.
The "Sustainability & the HOPE Village Initiative" Integrated Assessment (IA) is the result of a partnership between U-M's Graham Sustainability Institute and Focus: HOPE. The IA was developed to support the nonprofit's comprehensive, place-based effort known as the "HOPE Village Intiative." The Initiative's goal is for 100% of residents living in a 100-block area surrounding the Focus: HOPE campus to be educationally well-prepared, economically self-sufficient, and living in a safe, supportive environment by 2031. This publication consolidates the following six project reports from the overall effort:
For communities in the Great Lakes region climate change poses unique challenges and creates intriguing opportunities. While many regions of the country face catastrophic threats of sea level rise or tragic outbreaks of wildfires, climate change impacts in the Great Lakes region create more subtle and insidious stresses on the way we live, work and play in our communities. At the University of Michigan's Graham Sustainability Institute, we are working to address these impacts and develop strategies for building more resilient cities.
