Event description

Description

On behalf of FEMA Region IX, the NOAA Office for Coastal Management, United States Geological Survey, the California Coastal Commission, the State Coastal Conservancy, and USC Sea Grant, I’d like to invite you to Save the Date for a Coastal Resilience Workshop in Monterey County.

As part of FEMA Region IX’s Open Pacific Coast Study, we are collaborating with our federal, state, and local partners to convene interactive RiskMAP Coastal Resilience workshops up and down the California coast to learn more about the risks and hazards facing coastal communities, and share best available tools and resources.

What are the benefits of participating?

  • Gain clarity on the alignment of state and federal processes, guidance materials, and models for considering flooding and sea level rise, for example, in Hazard Mitigation Plans and Local Coastal Programs
  • Learn about available federal and state resources that can help support risk reduction
  • Identify how to operationalize vulnerability assessments to support climate adaptation planning
  • Understand best practices from local community stakeholders who are leveraging resources to support resilience-building actions
  • Develop partnerships with other local stakeholders as well as federal and state agencies

Why are you invited?

You have been identified among our network as a leader and practitioner in Monterey County working on climate adaptation planning, flood risk management, hazard mitigation planning, land use planning, and/or coastal resilience efforts.

Who else will be in attendance?

We hope to have strong representation of Monterey county and city officials, local, state, and federal agencies, non-governmental organizations, and academic institutions. We’re inviting representatives from a wide range of disciplines and county/city departments including planning, engineering, GIS, public works, emergency management, public health, water and wastewater management, transportation, floodplain management, and parks and recreation.

If there are others you believe would be integral to this conversation, please do not hesitate to let us know.

Join us on September 27, 2017 from 8:30am to 4:30pm to help increase resilience in your community.

Please RSVP by September 26, 2017 and feel free to contact Maryam.Hariri@ogilvy.com or Madeline.Dickson@oglivy.com if you have any questions.

Thank you,

The Coastal Resilience Workshop Team
