These coastal cities, across the Bay from each other, need integrated, user-friendly tools to anticipate where flooding may happen, and to quickly warn people.
The Cities of Miami and Miami Beach will develop a data-driven system and shared data platform to predict and plan for rising sea levels and inform residents’ short-term decisions, such as altering one’s route to work to avoid flooding, and long-term decisions, like property investment to reduce risk.
Using emerging technologies, our project will accelerate our city’s ability to work with residents and businesses in making informed decisions about how to best protect ourselves and our properties from increasing flood risks.Francis Suarez, Mayor of Miami, FL
Our city has been the champion of many notable issues, and we are inspired through this prestigious recognition to make our city as resilient as possible in all areas.
Dan Gelber, Mayor of Miami Beach, FL
