Local and Regional Partnerships

SE Florida Regional Climate Change Compact

The Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Compact unites counties in Southeast Florida to articulate a proactive plan for increasing resilience to climate change. SLSC researchers are advisors to the Compact and work with counties to develop science-based plans around exposure data. At the city level, we work with experts from the City of Miami Beach to address sea level rise in the area. This project will inform and transform the city’s outlook for the future, serving as a model for building socio-ecologically resilient systems in vulnerable regions globally.
