Discussing the rise of the projected sea levels
Hosted at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, this comprehensive workshop invites elected state and local leaders to better serve the public in preparing for climate resilience.
Florida's projections for the next 20 years of sea level rise present an urgent and complex challenge for municipalities, agencies and decision makers. Southeast Florida's unique location and geology require significant and innovative adaptations as sea level rises. As state and local leaders prepare to respond to sea level rise related issues, they have expressed a need for briefings, training and resources that will aid them in making timely decisions. In response to this need, the program partners have developed this sea level rise workshop for South Florida's decision makers. The presenters include scientists from The Florida Climate Institute and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, local climate change experts, state officials tasked with sea level rise adaptation, and climate change education and outreach experts.
Registrants will be surveyed before the workshop so that they can tailor the sessions to specific needs. Topics can include:
- understanding sea level rise projections;
- preparing for saltwater intrusion;
- educating constituencies about sea level rise;
- planning for municipal projects; and
- understanding building codes and retro-fitting.
