This one-page document shares key takeaways of the Climate Resilience and Urban Opportunity (CRUO) initiative developed by Kresge’s Environment Program.

The initiative also sought to strengthen the field by supporting new equity-centered methodologies and approaches to climate-resilience policy and planning.
