Florida's Energy and Climate Change Action Plan

This action plan was developed by the Governor's Action Team on Energy and Climate Change in October 2008. The plan contains 50 separate policy recommendations for mitigation and adaptation, and is part of the Phase 2 deliverables required under Executive Order 07-128. Chapter 8 of the plan provides an overview of current and projected impacts, as well as a planning framework for adaptation developed by the Adaptation Technical Working Group (TWG). The chapter also recommends early action items for policymakers to consider in the following areas: Research, Comprehensive Planning, Protection of Ecosystems and Biodiversity, Water Resources Management, Built Environment, Infrastructure and Community Protection, and Public Education and Outreach.

Appendix F provides the full details of the planning framework, as well as the proposed early policy actions, denoted as "strategies." Additionally, goals are provided for additional sectors for which no early action recommendations were identified, such as Economic Development (agriculture, forestry, marine, aquaculture, and construction), Insurance, Emergency Preparedness, and Human Health.
