Throughout this event, teams of local academic, public and private sector experts developed designs to serve as models of resilience for communities throughout the Southeast Florida region. The teams developed full resilient design concepts – complete with drawings, renderings and a briefing presentation.
The objective of the design sessions was to identify physical and planning adaptations necessary to reduce the risk and potential for disruptions, damage and economic losses associated with climate change, while considering the preservation of historic and community character and the prominent integration of natural systems. Consideration was given to short term (implementable), mid term and long term (visionary) solutions.
After the event, the designs were shared by the Compact with member communities and elsewhere throughout the Florida Climate Institute to serve as model resilience approaches for communities facing similar challenges.
