Second Report and Initial Recommendations Miami-Dade County Climate Change Advisory Task Force
These initial recommendations were drafted at the committee level for review by the Miami-Dade Climate Change Advisory Task Force (CCATF). After extensive deliberations and further development, the recommendations were unanimously approved by the full Task Force on March 20, 2008. The items proposed focus on both mitigation activities and adaptation strategies. Mitigation efforts include activities that attempt to slow the process of global climate change by lowering the level of greenhouse gases [GHG] in the atmosphere, such as reducing fossil fuel consumption. Adaptation efforts include proactive steps we can take now to begin the process of making the County more resilient to the impacts that we are likely to experience.
