ABSTRACT

Green infrastructure is gaining popularity as a strategy for protecting communities from coastal hazards, including coastal flooding and erosion. NOAA has developed a suite of products to help coastal managers and planners consider natural approaches to reduce coastal flooding associated with storms and sea level rise and protect coastal ecosystems.

During this webinar, participants will learn about resources to help visualize their exposure to coastal flood hazards, explore green infrastructure techniques to reduce impacts, and identify open space to gain credit through FEMA’s Community Rating System. Participants will also learn how their peers have tackled coastal flooding challenges using green infrastructure.

Reaching Across the Border to Improve Water Supplies for People and Nature: The United States, Mexico, and the Colorado River

Tuesday, January 9, 2018 - 3:00 p.m. Eastern

INTRODUCTION

Marla Stelk, Policy Analyst, Association of State Wetland Managers [POWERPOINT PRESENTATION]

PRESENTER

Jennifer Pitt, Audubon [POWERPOINT PRESENTATION]

ABSTRACT

The Colorado River Delta has long been desiccated, due to over-allocation of water supplies and persistent drought. In a series of recent agreements, the United States and Mexico have begun a collaborative effort with non-governmental organizations to restore water to this ecosystem for the purpose of re-creating riparian and estuarine habitat, in the context of agreements that improve the two countries’ ability to manage a diminishing water supply.

BIO

Jennifer Pitt joined Audubon in December 2015 to advise the organization’s strategies to protect and restore rivers throughout the Colorado River Basin. At Audubon she continues her work on United States–Mexico collaboration to restore the long-desiccated Colorado River Delta. Previously she worked as the Colorado River Project Director at the Environmental Defense Fund.
