Climate change and the science of resilience and adaptation are incredibly complex. The Compact has compiled the key resources and experts to help journalists tell what can be a very difficult story to convey to general audiences.
Regional Climate Action Plan
The Regional Climate Action Plan (RCAP) is the Compact’s guiding tool for coordinated climate action in Southeast Florida to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and build climate resilience. The RCAP provides a set of recommendations, guidelines for implementation, and shared best practices for local entities to act in-line with the regional agenda. Explore the RCAP here.
