Completed Recommendations (Now Defunct)

Natural Systems

NS-12
Develop long-term turtle-nesting beach preservation and management strategies to reduce nest vulnerability and mortality.
NS-8
Leverage existing work of the Florida Reef Resilience Program’s “Climate Change Action Plan for Florida’s Coral Reef System 2010- 2015” for protection of marine habitat.

Public Policy Advocacy

PP-11
Urge Congress to provide recognition of an “Adaptation Action Area” designation in federal law for the purpose of prioritizing funding for infrastructure needs and adaptation planning, with special attention to modifications in law that enhance funding opportunities through USACE and EPA appropriations processes, as requested by members of Congress.
PP-12
Urge Congress to pass legislation that would create a permanent funding source to finance infrastructure projects to adapt to the impacts of climate change with emphasis on investments in areas such as water management, water supply, transportation and other projects that serve to reduce risks to urban infrastructure from extreme weather events and rising sea levels.
PP-13
Urge Congress to pass legislation that removes federal barriers posed by the Federal Housing Finance Agency to Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) residential initiatives that are intended to assist property owners to finance energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements.
PP-5
Federal Surface Transportation Authorization. Advocate for new authorization of the federal surface transportation programs with increased priority for funding public transit and non- motorized travel and integrated regional and local planning as means to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector. Such a federal program should explicitly incorporate climate change and shift priorities toward programs that encourage reinvestment in existing infrastructure and communities (“fix-it-first” programs), support public transportation and transit-oriented development, and address congestion management through means other than new road building.
PP-7
Advocate for stronger Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) Standards and other initiatives to promote clean fuel alternatives and encourage more stringent vehicle emission standards in recognition of the value of these initiatives to mitigate the impacts of climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
PP-8
Support and advocate for continued implementation and funding on the state and federal levels for the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) in recognition of the important role of CERP in climate adaptation planning and local water resource management related to regional water storage and aquifer recharge, important under variable climate conditions and sea level rise.

Sustainable Communities and Transportation

SP-33
Coordinate initiatives with those of the seven- county Southeast Florida Prosperity Plan, known as Seven50, to maximize the opportunities presented as Seven50 is developed (e.g. sharing data and analysis; participating in alternative future scenario planning; engaging a myriad of public, private and civic partners) and actively engage in Seven50 implementation efforts, designed to address the following Livability Principles: Provide more transportation choices Promote equitable, affordable housing Enhance economic competitiveness Support existing communities Coordinate policies and leverage investment Value communities and neighborhoods Enhance community resiliency to the impacts of Climate Change
