Resource Summary

The Detroit Action Plan provides an accessible introduction to climate change, an overview of the expected trends and impacts in Detroit, and strategies for mitigating emissions and preparing for climate risks. In 2011, the nonprofit Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice convened the Detroit Climate Action Collaborative (DCAC) that brought 27 organizations together to collectively envision the strategy presented in this plan.

The plan grounds its recommendations in a vulnerability assessment – and analysis done by partner organizations assessing climate emissions in the city, and current trends. These find that Detroit is seeing warmer temperature and that trend will continue. Air quality risks, increasing precipitation, and inland flooding are also projected to become greater hazards.
