9/8 THUR 16:00 | 4-County Climate Change Planning 3

246

Published on

Jennifer Jurado

This session will discuss the Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Compact agreed to by Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties in SE Florida, and their partnering with the
South Florida Water Management District. The 5.6 million residents of the four counties exceed the population of 30 states and represent 30 percent of Florida’s population, and are situated in
one of the nation’s areas most vulnerable to climate change. The session will detail the Regional Climate Change Compact’s objectives,
its accomplishments to date and the ongoing development of a regional climate action plan.

  • The four counties of SE Fl recognized that we share a number of general characteristics across our borders. We live essentially at sea level in dense urban areas along the coastline. We have highly transmission drinking water aquifer. We have a tourist based economy and unique natural assets such as coral reefs, beautiful beaches and the Everglades Ecosystem. While these commonalities provide for a great quality of life here, they also make our region one of the most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
  • We are also convening a Technical Work Group to attempt to unify the variety of sea level rise projections in use for SE. Fl. Draft Aug 19 Presentation to CCTF
  • Recognizing that even with mitigation of greenhouse gas emission, the Southeast Florida region would need to adapt to certain climate change impacts that are inevitable, Broward County in collaboration with Miami-Dade, Palm Beach and Monroe organized the Southeast Florida Regional Climate Summit in October 2009. The purpose of the meeting was to gather together our elected officials and regional policy makers, highlight critical issues related to climate change, discuss areas of mutual concern and come together to provide direction for future collaboration. Representatives of the four Counties, signed off on the Compact at the end of the summit committing to bring the compact to their respective Commissions for adoption. As of January 20, all 4 counties had signed on.
