Coastal communities in the Great Lakes Basin face a number of climate change challenges, including high variability in water levels and extreme weather events.

Climate action, including Nature-based Solutions, needs to provide readiness for action, preparedness to future events and avenues for revitalization.

A case study in the Niagara Region of Ontario, which engaged managers and community members, identified six ways this could be accomplished to enhance sustainability (co-production of knowledge for the co-creation of solutions).

The research presented a method to incorporate these six ways into an integrated model (theory of change) to monitor changes in the long term.
