PEW to host webinar series on advancing flood resilience planning and policy development beginning Jan. 21

from IAEM

The PEW Charitable Trusts’ flood-prepared communities initiative will host a webinar series highlighting opportunities to advance flood resilience planning and policy development in 2021. The first webinar will be held Jan. 21, 1:00-2:00 p.m. EST, on “Flood Resilience in the Year Ahead: State Innovation and Opportunities.” Since 2019, more than 10 states have mandated statewide resilience assessments or plans in order to coordinate investments and projects across agencies and localities to better prepare communities for natural hazards. This webinar will feature states leading the way to develop and implement statewide strategies that can manage vulnerabilities and increase resilience to future risks. Speakers will include: Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes, State of Wisconsin; Dave Rosenblatt, New Jersey chief resilience officer and assistant commissioner, Climate and Flood Resilience, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection; Shaun O’Rourke, Rhode Island chief resilience officer and director of Stormwater and Resiliency, Rhode Island Infrastructure Bank; and Dan Lauf, program director, Center for Best Practices, National Governors’ Association.
