Climate Canopy: How Can Cincinnati Repurpose Underutilized Roofs to Mitigate Climate Impacts? 

By 2050, Cincinnati will face 79 days a year with a heat index of 90 degrees Fahrenheit alongside an increase in rainfall and storms if no action is taken to mitigate climate impacts. Our systems and infrastructure must adapt to meet the worsening climate impacts in Cincinnati. By occupying underutilized rooftops, Downtown Cincinnati can prevail as a roofscape community to combat looming climate impacts, reducing the effects of urban heat island effect and flooding while redesigning public space.
