Tampa Bay Regional Resiliency Coalition


Building a Resilient Tampa Bay, together.

In 2018, the Tampa Bay Regional Resiliency Coalition (TBRRC) formed to coordinate climate adaptation and mitigation activities across county lines, to advance local and regional responses to and preparations for economic and social disruption projected to result from sea-level rise, and to provide state and local agencies with access to technical assistance and support in addressing the effects of climate change. Read the Memorandum of Understanding.

The Steering Committee is comprised of elected officials and subject matter experts from throughout the Tampa Bay region who serve as the leadership board for this important initiative. Meetings are held immediately following TBRPC Full Council meetings.
