History

In July, 2006, the Board of County Commissioners established the Miami-Dade County Climate Change Advisory Task Force (CCATF), through the adoption of Ordinance 06-113 sponsored. This unanimous action by the Board further cemented Miami-Dade County's commitment to continuing its greenhouse gas reduction efforts and established the County as a leader in climate change adaptation planning.

The CCATF served as an advisory board to the Board of County Commissioners and was charged with identifying potential future climate change impacts to Miami-Dade County, while providing recommendations regarding mitigation and adaptation measures to respond to climate change. The Mayor and the Board were responsible for making the decisions to accept and implement the CCATF recommendations concerning climate change. Some of the implemented recommendations then became a part of the County's sustainability plan, GreenPrint.

Seven CCATF committees/subcommittees were established to focus on specific areas of climate change mitigation and adaptation. In addition to the appointed members, various County and municipal liaisons and representatives from numerous universities, local businesses and environmental and regional organizations participated in CCATF meetings and associated committee meetings.
