Florida Adaptation Planning Guidebook

This Adaptation Planning Guidebook is a compilation of more than 5 years of stakeholder involvement and research during the Community Resiliency Initiative (CRI) directed by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) as part of the Florida Coastal Management Plan. Research began in 2011 and continued through 2017. During this time, upwards of 30 documents that focus on many aspects of adaptation planning and are specific to Florida were created.

Transportation Climate Change Sensitivity Matrix

Tool Overview: 
This workbook presents the Sensitivity Matrix, developed in November 2013 and expanded from a version developed under Phase 2 of the U.S. Department of Transportation's Gulf Coast project. Sensitivity is the degree to which an asset or a system responds to a given change in climate stressor, and is a key part of evaluating vulnerability and risk. The Matrix provided in this tool has been developed to allow users to more fully understand the sensitivity of various types of transportation assets to particular climate stressors.

Southeast Regional Climate Hub Assessment of Climate Change Vulnerability and Adaptation and Mitigation Strategies

From the mountainous areas of the Ozarks and southern Appalachians to the coastal plains of the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida, and from the temperate climate of Kentucky and Tennessee to the subtropical climate of southern Florida, the wide range of environments across the southeastern United States provide the basis for the region’s long and rich cultural and economic history. Sea level rise, hurricanes, extreme heat, and decreased water availability are the major stressors outlined by the National Climate Assessment for the Southeast (Carter et al., 2014) This report assesses the region

Fostering Fisheries Management Efficiency Through Collaboration Networks: The Case of the Kanan Kay Alliance in the Mexican Caribbean

After decades of implementation of territorial use rights in sheries (TURFs) and other sheries management measures around the world, it is clear that monitoring their progress and results in biological and socioeconomic terms is necessary, and that involving shers in the design and implementation will improve their likelihood of success.

Predicting Future Mangrove Forest Migration in the Everglades Under Rising Sea Level

Mangroves are highly productive ecosystems that provide valued habitat for fish and shorebirds. Mangrove forests are universally composed of relatively few tree species and a single overstory strata. Three species of true mangroves are common to intertidal zones of the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico Coast, namely, black mangrove (Avicennia germinans), white mangrove (Laguncularia racemosa), and red mangrove (Rhizophora mangle). Mangrove forests occupy intertidal settings of the coastal margin of the Everglades along the southwest tip of the Florida peninsula. 

Adaptation Action Areas: Fort Lauderdale

Adaptation Action Areas are a designation in the Coastal Management Element of a local government comprehensive plan which identifies one or more areas that experience coastal flooding due to extreme high tides and storm surge, and that are vulnerable to the related impacts of rising sea levels for the purpose of prioritizing funding for infrastructure needs and adaptation planning. These Adaptation Action Areas, or Adaptation Areas, will help the City reach these goals, keeping Fort Lauderdale safe and prepared.
