Hazard Mitigation and Climate Adaptation Planning: Geospatial Data Uses and Gaps

  • The presentation will begin with an overview of geospatial data used in hazard mitigation planning, the requirements and benefits of the State and County Hazard Mitigation Plans, and how MN agencies as well as all sectors can (and do) participate in mitigation action development. The relationship of hazard mitigation and climate adaptation planning will be discussed. We are looking for feedback and strategies for the initiatives discussed, so the presentation will be somewhat interactive.
