Protecting South Florida: A discussion of sea level rise, property and regional planning

Source(s):  Center for Urban & Environmental Solutions - Florida Atlantic University (CUES)

This report explores the twin challenges of climate change threats (ie. Sea Level Rise) and South Florida’s (United States of America) prospects for establishing formal institutions capable of dealing with these threats (regional planning/governing bodies). The specifics of the first challenge relate to SLR’s effects on property values. The second challenge encompasses how regional institutions can mitigate or adapt to catastrophic weather events. The crucial issue is whether there is a determination to do something about rising sea levels and how we might go about fulfilling that resolve. The authors' purpose is to cast some light on this issue and clarify the alternatives available to South Florida (p. 37).
