Floodplain Management and Coastal Zone Planning in the Face of Climate Change
NWAEP is excited to host these in-person viewings of the NAEP webinar: Floodplain Management and Coastal Zone Planning in the Face of Climate Change (see details below). Note that the in-person viewings are only at the Portland and Seattle locations provided in this announcement. If you are interested in viewing elsewhere, you will have to register and pay separately via the NAEP webpage.
During the past year, the adverse effects of sea level rise and increased flooding associated with extreme weather events have been routine news events. Land use planners and engineers are responding to the challenges of protecting human life, homes, businesses and infrastructure in many forms. This water resources webinar will provide an overview of the flood risk, land use management implications and impacts to the economy. Our panel will discuss how the State of Louisiana is dealing with the effects of land subsidence which is exacerbated by sea level rise with the adoption of the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority's 2017 Coastal Master Plan. Our panel will also discuss how the City of Sarasota recognized the implications of climate change and the potential for climate to impact public infrastructure and coastal resiliency. After identifying system vulnerabilities to future climate threats, the City created an Action Plan to address critical infrastructure.
This webinar is pending approval for 1.5 AICP credits.
