Climate Action and Climate Justice Plan
for Kalamazoo County

Climate Action and Climate Justice Plan

The world is facing a climate crisis.  Several government units in and around Kalamazoo County have declared this in clear language.  There is a real need to formulate a coordinated plan of action to prepare a county with a resilient economy that expands opportunity and diversity, readily recovers from climate hazard events, adopts redundant climate-ready infrastructure, promotes healthy populations, and protects natural resources, ecosystems, and agriculture. A community-informed Climate Action and Climate Justice Plan at the county level is under development with residents, stakeholders, and governmental staff providing input throughout the decision-making process

Creation of the plan is supported by a 3-year grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy, which was jointly secured by the Kalamazoo Climate Crisis Coalition (KCCC) and Kalamazoo County. The development of the Plan is a county-wide collaborative between local organizations, educational institutions, and governments to accelerate environmental justice and climate action planning and implementation in Kalamazoo County.

Application for the Advisory Council is now open!
