Florida’s climate strongly affects our prosperity.
Our warm temperatures and abundant rainfall strengthen
our tourism, agriculture, and other industries.
But our weather patterns also present Floridians with risks,
such as flooding and high winds.
CES is partnering with the Business and Economics Polling Initiative (BEPI) at FAU’s College of Business to conduct a quarterly Florida Climate Resilience Survey. The main purpose of the survey is to gauge Floridians’ views on their preparedness and resilience to climate hazards.
The first of these surveys was implemented in October 2019, and the second survey was completed end of January 2020. We plan to continue administering these surveys quarterly to gauge changes in participants’ attitudes and opinions over time.
