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 partnered with the Business and Economics Polling Initiative (BEPI) at FAU’s College of Business to conduct a quarterly Florida Climate Resilience Survey in October 2019, January 2020, April 2020 and August 2020. The main purpose of the survey is to gauge Floridians’ views on their preparedness and resilience to climate hazards. CES conducted another three waves of surveying, which started September 2021, to continue the effort to gauge changes in participants’ attitudes and opinions over time.
