The Upper Peninsula’s Economy and a Changing Climate

Changing climate will affect the timber industry, tourism, and demands on health care services

This web post briefly summarizes the Climate Adaptation Report which provides a description of key economic sectors at greatest risk from extreme weather or long-term climate shifts and is intended to prepare the region’s forests, water resources, and communities for a less certain future.

The project was done in partnership with the Superior Watershed Partnership, Climate Solutions University, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, U.S. Forest Service, Great Lakes Integrated Science Assessments, and the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative.
