Broward County's Resilient Environment Department has launched a two-year county-wide resilience planning effort focused on building community resilience to the impacts of climate change predicted over the next half century, with a primary focus on flood and heat mitigation.
This annual event is coordinated by the Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Compact, a partnership between Broward, Miami-Dade, Monroe, and Palm Beach counties; their municipalities; and other partners.
The Southeast Florida Climate Leadership Summit is a major regional event focused on facilitating climate-related collaboration and knowledge sharing.
The Broward County Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP) published in 2020 consists of nearly 100 strategic actions for addressing the economic, environmental, and social impacts of climate change. Originally published in 2010, the plan is updated every five years to keep pace with accomplishments and local opportunities.
The Regional CCAP 3.0 was released in December 2022. This plan provides a voluntary framework designed to align, guide, and support the acceleration of local and regional climate action in Southeast Florida to realize a healthy, prosperous, more equitable and resilient, low-carbon region.
