Building Climate-Ready Communities

We’ve launched the Duluth Citizen’s Climate Action Plan!

Climate change is bringing more intense storms, rain events and floods to our area. After leading the rebuild and recovery work for the flood of 2012, we know that people who are poor and vulnerable are often hit hardest. That’s why we’re developing innovative solutions that help our whole community—especially our most vulnerable members—increase their resiliency to the impacts of climate change.

The Duluth Citizens’ Climate Action Plan (Duluth CCAP) is a citizen effort to inspire community-wide action to reduce Duluth’s greenhouse gas emissions and envision a future for Duluth that is sustainable and equitable. Learn more about actions you can take by visiting the site below.

How this work is making change:

Our collaboration with experts across the region helps bring the latest thinking in climate readiness to our community. We are improving food and water security, making houses more able to weather storms, supporting the development of renewable and local power, and more. These efforts help make our community stronger and more resilient, step-by-step.
