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, implementation guidelines, and best practices for local entities to act in-line with the regional agenda. Explore the RCAP here.
Released in late 2015, this projection is used by local, county, state, and federal groups working to prepare and protect Southeast Florida. Understanding the projection is critical to telling Southeast Florida’s story regarding climate change and sea level rise.
