I am pleased to present this GreenKeys! Sustainability Action Plan, which identifies the County’s vulnerabilities to sea level rise and climate change—and provides a comprehensive 5-year roadmap on how best to proactively deal with these issues that likely will worsen in the future.
Sustainability has become a major focus in our County, which consists of a chain of low-elevation islands that scientists have called the country’s “Ground Zero” for experiencing the effects of sea level rise and climate change. This plan builds on the County’s early efforts. It identifies and prioritizes the County’s vulnerabilities in our infrastructure, buildings, roads and habitats. Just as important, it also develops strategies and actionable solutions to best prepare for and adapt to the projected changes now and in the years to come.
