Updated course designed to explore the projected impacts of climate change and sea level rise in the context of infrastructure, natural systems, planning and law.   The panel will provide an overview of the current science of climate change with a specific focus on documented and projected impacts in Florida.  The discussion will identify current and future regulatory implications of sea level rise and infrastructure.  Both Florida and national models will be discussed.  The speakers will identify emerging case studies, projects, state and federal laws, policies, and regulations that address sea level rise.  This session will examine potential adaptation, mitigation and resiliency strategies to protect infrastructure and natural systems, including a discussion on infrastructure and ecosystem level of service implications and anticipated hurdles to adaptation strategy implementation.
