POSTPONED DUE TO GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN
(will rechedule as soon as possible)
Course Description: This intensive one-day training will introduce the “Roadmap” assessment approach designed to help communities characterize their exposure to current and future hazard and climate threats. This participatory assessment process is designed to :
- Engage key staff members and stakeholders in a comprehensive assessment of local vulnerabilities;
- Evaluate potential hazard and climate impacts using existing information resources;
- Collaborate across disciplines to better understand and plan for impacts; and
- Identify opportunities for improving resilience to current and future hazard risks.
NOAA’s Coastal Services Center expert training staff will lead instruction, with participants spending the morning being trained in the classroom, followed by an afternoon field experience.
Who should attend? Professionals interested in: (1) increasing their understanding of, and skills in, coastal hazard mitigation, and (2) networking among other professionals. Specifically: Program administrators, land use planners, public works staff members, floodplain managers, hazard mitigation planners, emergency managers, community groups, and coastal resource managers.
