This past month in Southeast Florida, Miami-Dade County, an ASAP organizational member, alongside the City of Miami and the City of Miami Beach released their Resilient305 Strateg. The Resilient305 Strategy will act as a guide for the Greater Miami area and the Beaches’ climate resilience challenges, touching on topics from rising sea levels to public health and affordable housing. This multilateral plan was created over the course of three years by the County and two cities, and brought together the public and private sectors, to address the shocks and stresses of the region. The Resilient305 Strategy includes 59 actions and offers 28 cases studies. A sample of actions, some of which are already underway, include a task force for preserving and protecting Biscayne Bay, designing a more efficient bus route, and reorganizing governmental budgets around financing a resilient future. Read the complete strategy here.
