Key takeaways & next steps:

  • Miami is a city leading the charge in climate resilience, with a diverse and unified approach to tackling climate issues, focusing on three key pillars: energy efficiency, clean infrastructure building materials, and innovative solutions.
  • To enhance preparedness, Miami has established a heat office, declared heat seasons, and prioritized education and community engagement.
  • New York City is also committed to sustainability, evident by its focus on green initiatives, including creating green jobs and infrastructure, conducting comprehensive environmental studies, and investing in climate innovation hubs.
  • At the global level, a recognition of shared vulnerabilities underscores the importance of collaborative efforts to address climate challenges. Communities and cities should pool resources and expertise to provide support and implement necessary changes to combat climate change and its associated threats.
