This presentation will share how Cleveland, Ohio is taking an asset-based approach to plan for climate change. Some of the local assets the city is building on include: 1) a strong network of community development corporations ; 2) neighborhood climate ambassadors to lead community outreach; 3) established partnerships with the city, the county, the regional sewer district, faith-based institutions, regional universities, and other non-profit organizations; and 4) extensive weatherization, energy efficiency, and renewable energy programs.
