Challenges and Opportunities for Better Preparedness with Floodplain Management
Friday, November 5, 2021
12:00PM - 1:00PM
Floodplain managers play a crucial role in ensuring that communities are prepared for extreme weather events: they enforce floodplain development standards, educate residents about flood risk, and help plan for future events. While they play a huge role in decreasing our nation's flood risk, they also face several barriers to success – including the lack of resources and adequate information to inform decision-making and outreach. In this webinar, Susanna Pho of Forerunner will use case studies from her work to explore how communities of all sizes are investing in better data, technology, and processes to address these challenges. She will also discuss how the communities that she works with leverage incentives to encourage resident adaptation and mitigation.
