Resilience and Coastal Protection Forum 2020

Since 2016, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection has hosted the Florida Coastal Management Program Annual Meeting in locations around the state, bringing together stakeholders and partners, broadening awareness of FCMP activities and strengthening partnerships. In 2019, DEP also began offering the Resilient Florida Workshop to provide technical expertise to local government partners around the topic of coastal resilience.


To successfully uphold CDC guidance to maximize social distancing and avoid gatherings of more than 10 people to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, DEP has canceled the May 5-7 dates for the Resilience and Coastal Protection Forum. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we work to prioritize the welfare of our communities and staff.

For additional updates on the 2020 conference, including a potential rescheduling of events to a later date, please continue to monitor this page or reach out to
