We are already experiencing impacts of climate change in the City of Miami and will continue to experiences its impacts into the future. Climate adaptation is the recognition and study of those impacts, coupled with actions to protect the City and its residents from the climate change impacts we can no longer prevent.
Miami is considered the tip of the spear, among the first cities nationally and globally to witness present day changes to the environment due to climate change that, unchecked, could begin to change the daily lives of constituents. That is why City of Miami has focused on climate adaptation first and foremost when addressing climate change. Miami’s dedication and high-level administrative support for this approach has made Miami a global climate adaptation leader, as demonstrated by Mayor Francis Suarez’s appointment to the Global Commission on Adaptation.
