Cleveland's Climate Risk and Vulnerability

The City of Cleveland is committed to sustainability and equity. We want to ensure that everyone in our community has a safe and healthy place to live, regardless of income, race, or ability. We are working to make our city more resilient to climate change that is equitable and inclusive of all communities. We want to hear about how climate change affects you and your community and how we can work together to build a more sustainable and equitable future for Cleveland.  

Climate change describes a change in the average conditions — such as temperature and rainfall — in a region over a long period of time. Human activity is causing worldwide temperatures to rise higher and faster than any time we know of in the past. In Cleveland we are seeing more extreme weather events, like severe storms, more rain flooding, extreme heat, and warmer seasons. These events can cause damage to homes and businesses and make it harder for people to stay healthy. 

The City of Cleveland is updating its Climate Action Plan to help us prepare for and adapt to the impacts of climate change. The plan will include strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the main cause of climate change. It will also include strategies to help our communities become more resilient to, or able to bounce back from, the impacts of climate change.
