    South Florida is no stranger to the challenges of more frequent flooding and sea level rise - a long-term challenge for our region. And the region has continued to move the needle on flooding and climate, even during a global pandemic. Join us on Thursday, April 15th as we hear from South Florida mayors on how they continued to advance
    solutions to long-term problems during a short-term crisis.  Our mayors will discuss what kind of leadership is required for a resilient and sustainable recovery, and how the private and public sector can work together.
