This program focuses on methods to lead a community to be resilient in the face of Cincinnati’s climate change realities, with an emphasis on what local government responses are already in place and what other private and public sector responses could be developed. The program will provide background on climate change in general but will place a significant focus on anticipated changes to Cincinnati’s climate based on the National Climate Assessment Report and what the likely impact of the changes will be. You will also examine Cincinnati’s Green House Gas emissions and the prospects for significantly reducing them through the Green Cincinnati Plan. Cincinnati’s current emergency preparedness and response plans, including the Hamilton County All Hazards Mitigation Plan, will be examined. Analyzing climate adaptation plans already in place in other cities, you will develop possible private and public sector strategies Cincinnati might adopt to resiliently address anticipated climate change impacts.
