The National Wildlife Federation and Great Lakes Commission collaborated on a project to identify approaches to climate change adaptation applicable to Michigan coastal wetlands. The project entailed working closely with a Project Review Committee made up of experts from agencies, academia, nongovernmental organizations, and private industry. Through committee input, a literature review, and experience of core team members, both adaptation best practices as well as criteria for evaluating and ranking them were identified. The resulting toolkit includes descriptions, challenges and benefits, case studies, and resources for 18 best practices, at both the institutional and project level. This toolkit should be useful for coastal wetland managers in Michigan as well as other coastal states considering how to manage wetlands in a changing climate.
