The Compact is an agreement adopted by the Broward, Miami-Dade, Monroe, and Palm Beach County Commissions in January 2010. As the counties recognized Southeast Florida’s vulnerability to the impacts of climate change, they resolved to work collaboratively on mitigation and adaptation strategies across county lines.
The Compact represents a new form of regional climate governance designed to allow local governments to set the agenda for adaptation, while providing state and federal agencies with access to technical assistance and support. The Compact has collaborated on activities such as joint policies to influence climate and energy legislation and funding at state and federal levels, developed and implemented the Regional Climate Action Plan, and hosted annual summits to facilitate climate-related collaboration and knowledge sharing.
