Support local land use, zoning, water management, and other policies that help the agriculture sector adapt to and manage climate impacts to agriculture, including:

  1. Increased drought
  2. Flooding
  3. Sea level rise
  4. Groundwater salinization
  5. Non-native species invasion

Coordinate regional communication supporting the types of international trade policies that maintain the viability of Southeast Florida’s agriculture market.

Consider developing Adaptation Action Areas (AAAs) for agricultural projects focused on adaptation (e.g., developing salt tolerant crops and agricultural systems, and converting flood-prone farmland for carbon sequestration).
