Achieving the targets identified in the Climate Action Strategy will take an implementation program that starts now and evolves to include new opportunities and technology. Actions in the strategy will be identified and tracked in the annual County Budget. Communitywide efforts will be pursued through ongoing collaboration with municipalities, Miami-Dade County Public Schools, and private sector partners using existing platforms including the Resilient305 PIVOT team, the Beacon Council, the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, the Office of Equity and Inclusion, and the County’s long-term relationships with community based organizations.
Progress towards specific targets will be tracked through greenhouse gas inventories conducted every two years. Related metrics and a summary of investments the County has made will be provided through the budget process and on the County website. In five years, the Climate Action Strategy will be updated to incorporate new technology, funding opportunities, and community identified solutions. The County will measure short-term progress as we focus on reaching the long-term goal of zero emissions by 2050.
