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.
There are several Florida Statutes (F.S.) and Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.) rules that either give authority to programs within the Office of Resilience and Coastal Protection, or programs for which RCP is directly responsible. For more information about any of these, please contact the Office of Resilience and Coastal Protection at (850) 245-2094.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is the state’s lead agency for environmental management and stewardship – protecting our air, water and land. The vision of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection is to create strong community partnerships, safeguard Florida’s natural resources and enhance its ecosystems.
