How do we know if we are making progress?  Together with Blue Accounting partners, the Great Lakes Coastal Assembly is working to identify and track specific metrics that measure how well we are advancing toward reaching our objectives.

At this time, we have identifed one metric each for Goal 1 and Goal 2.  Click below to learn more.

Goal 2: Support diverse wetland types that are resilient and adaptable to changing conditions

A resilient system of Great Lakes coastal wetlands that is able to function within an extended range of variability, supports diversity of wetland types throughout the region, and adapts to changing climatic and hydrologic conditions.

Objective: reach Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) action plan II and III annual coastal wetland acreage target values

Metric: total coastal wetland acreage protected, enhanced, or restored by GLRI projects.
