The Sea Level Solutions Center (SLSC) at Florida International University (FIU) was requested by the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) to help develop a set of well-defined future climatic scenarios for various planning efforts underway. Such efforts include, but are not limited to, the Florida Protection Level of Service (FPLOS) program, Water Supply Planning, and CERP Planning/Everglades Restoration.  As a first step in this process, FIU organized a workshop on May 16, 2019 to be attended by a selected group of experts in the field and representatives of various agencies, governments, and private sector. Through this workshop, FIU facilitated a dialog to develop a plan for preparing a set of statewide series of climate scenarios and prepared this final report summarizing the deliberations, recommendations, and future actions.
