A/E/C Industry Outlook: Adaptation Strategies for the Issue of Sea Rise Levels

Is climate change a hoax? Coastlines have been battered with storms and floods and South Florida’s recent experience with extreme weather conditions has made the area especially susceptible to impacts of climate change such as rising sea levels. Join SMPS South Florida for an interactive discussion with climate, environment, resilience and planning professionals on this challenging topic and brainstorm forward-thinking solutions for our cities and the A/E/C industry.

Alec Bogdanoff, Ph.D. is a policy-trained oceanographer and meteorologist. Alec is the President and Co-founder of Brizaga, a consulting company that assists businesses and communities in becoming more resilient to the effects of sea level rise and long-term changes in weather patterns.

  • Dr. Jennifer Jurado, Chief Climate Resilience Officer – Broward County Environmental Planning and Community Resilience Division
  • Dr. Colin Polsky, Director of Center for Environmental Studies and Professor of Geosciences – Florida Atlantic University
  • Rebecca Harvey, Sustainability Coordinator – City of Boynton Beach
