Broward County


Since 2007, Broward County has recognized that the vulnerability of the county to climate impacts and the need to plan for climate change. In 2008 the Board of County Commissioners created the Broward County Climate Change Task force to develop a countywide Climate Change Program and provide recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners on strategies to mitigate the causes and adapt to the consequences of climate change. The Broward County Natural Resources Planning and Management Division staff is responsible in supporting the Broward County Climate Change Task Force.

The mission of the Natural Resources Planning and Management Division is to protect, restore, and enhance, for the benefit of Broward County residents, visitors and ecosystems, the quality, abundance and diversity of the County’s natural resources through coordinated management efforts, including research, planning, monitoring, project implementation, and outreach activities.
