Fort Lauderdale Climate Adaptation Plan Approved

Fort Lauderdale was a pilot community in a National Coastal Zone Management Program initiative focused on preparing communities for sea level rise and coastal flooding.

Fort Lauderdale has taken on this resilience challenge. Its latest community investment plan lays out the city's commitment to invest public dollars in lessening both current and future sea level rise and flooding impacts. These investments include installing tidal valves and incorporating sea level rise projections into designs of new capital construction projects.
