Essential Tools: Integrating the Southeast Florida Sea Level Rise Projections Into Community Planning
July 14, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
This advanced workshop reviewed the scientific development of the Southeast Florida Sea Level Rise Projections, and highlighted how these projections are critical for local government planning.
Attendees explored how regional projections are developed and their utility in short- and long-term planning for local governments. Through panel discussions and moderated activities, attendees learned how to integrate the updated sea level rise projections into current plans.
The Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Compact and research partners updated the sea level rise projections for the region. These regional sea level rise projections can be used by communities throughout the region to better plan for sea level rise and its potential impacts.
The updated regional sea level rise projections were developed by the Compact Sea Level Rise Working Group, in partnership with research, science, and engineer participants from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, South Florida Water Management District, University of Miami, Florida International University, and Florida Atlantic University.
