The Florida Coastal Management Program is based on a network of agencies implementing 24 statutes that protect and enhance the state's natural, cultural and economic coastal resources.
The program's goal is to coordinate local, state and federal agency activities using existing laws to ensure that Florida's coast is as valuable to future generations as it is today.
Join us for the 2022 Florida Coastal Management Program Meeting
The 2022 Florida Coastal Management Program Meeting — to be held virtually on May 5th and 6th, 2022 — brings together stakeholders and local, state and federal partners in an effort to broaden awareness of activities, expand partnerships and discuss local coastal management issues.
This is on the heels of successful Florida Coastal Management Program Annual Meetings in the past. The first meeting was held in Tallahassee in 2016 as a statewide summit, discussing the program's activities and successes from the previous five years. Subsequent annual meetings were held in different regions of the state to focus on local coastal management topics of interest. The 2017 meeting was held in St. Augustine and highlighted coastal management activities and locally relevant issues within Florida's northeast region. The 2018 meeting, held in Clearwater Beach, focused on resiliency, strong communities and risk preparedness in Florida's southwest region. The 2019 meeting was held in Pensacola and focused on storm recovery and coastal resilience, with a focus on projects in northwest Florida.
