Miami-Dade County Climate Change Advisory Task Force – Status Update
In July, 2006, the Board of County Commissioners established the Miami-Dade County Climate Change Advisory Task Force (CCATF), through the adoption of Ordinance 06-113. The CCATF served as an advisory board to the Board of County Commissioners and was charged with identifying potential future climate change impacts to Miami-Dade County, while providing recommendations regarding mitigation and adaptation measures to respond to climate change.
The task force completed their assessments and submitted recommendations to the Board in April 2008 (see separate entry). This report provides a status update to each of the recommendations in the initial recommendations report.
Also available on the Task Force webpage are other Task Force reports and presentations, including the Science Committee presentation on sea-level rise projections. Go to the Task Force site at: http://www.miamidade.gov/derm/climatechange/taskforce.asp.
