Florida’s coastlines, including urban and rural communities and ecosystems, are threatened by the consequences of human-induced climate change. Rising seas and stronger tropical storm events impact ecosystems, urban developments and infrastructure. Increased temperatures result in heavier rainfall and more flooding.  Coastal pollution, HABs, changes in habitats and impacts on fisheries are exacerbated and economic services are impacted.
