ERI is documenting the actions of Midwestern local governments as they prepare for the impacts of climate change and take steps to reduce local emissions. The case studies in this list contain discussion questions to facilitate deeper conversations on communities' resilience activities. The questions can be found at the bottom of each case study under the heading, "Questions for discussion."
