Climate risks have economic impacts on cities and businesses that operate within them. It is important for both the public and private sector to work together to understand and communicate these impacts to demonstrate how sustainable infrastructure projects and climate actions can spur economic development by minimizing climate-related losses. This session will showcase how a county in the Midwest of the US -- Cuyahoga County - is approaching the development of a risk assessment calculator to quantify the financial impacts of climate change through cross-sector engagements, discussions, and collaborations. This tool has significant implications for use cases across the Untied States for businesses and cities to adapt to a changing climate.
