Water is Life: FEMA and Nature
October 5, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Water is Life: FEMA and Nature with Eileen Shader (American Rivers)
Climate change is causing more frequent and severe flood events. There is an urgent need to manage our floodplains in a way that centers public safety in the face of climate change, social and racial inequities, and environmental health and the biodiversity crisis. Join us for a presentation on new trends in floodplain management to support equitable and nature-based flood management and strategies river conservationists can use to integrate flood hazard mitigation and river conservation to benefit people and nature.
