Message from the Mayor

"While the effects of climate change might still seem theoretical for many communities around the globe, in Miami-Dade County, we already clearly see the impact of rising seas, extreme heat and sunny day flooding. Now in our 11th hour with the clock rapidly ticking, we must take action immediately to dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Community input to this draft of our County’s new Climate Action Strategy will transform how we use the proposed approaches to cut our footprint in half by 2030 and to zero by 2050 while also cleaning the air and water on which our economy depends, creating good-paying jobs, saving residents and businesses money, and improving public health for all."

Sincerely,
Daniella Levine Cava

Message from the Chief Resilience Officer

"Together with our County’s Sea Level Rise Strategy and the Biscayne Bay Task Force Report, this Climate Action Strategy builds on the collaborative success of Resilient305, which started with Miami-Dade’s partnership with the cities of Miami and Miami Beach and has now expanded to all 34 municipalities in our County. This teamwork will be critical to our success in reducing emissions as we draw on the wisdom, technological know-how and insights of our growing network of diverse community partners."
 
Sincerely,
James Murley
