Green Infrastructure Resources for Coastal Flood Risk Management

Tuesday, March 6, 2018 - 3:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. EST

HOST

Association of State Floodplain Managers

PRESENTERS

  • Maria Honeycutt, Ph.D., NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management
  • Lauren Long, The Baldwin Group, NOAA’s Office of Coastal Management 
  • Tashya Allen, The Baldwin Group, NOAA’s Office of Coastal Management 

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.
