Flood exposure maps allow officials to pinpoint and understand the vulnerability of their communities in terms of people, infrastructure, and natural resources. During this online training to be held on Tuesday, July 16, 2019, at 1:00 PM EDT, you’ll learn how to use these maps to engage your community—and hear a professional share examples of using flood exposure maps to help stakeholders understand local flood risk and improve coastal resilience.
Alex Rosen, Floodplain Management Specialist with the Washington Department of Ecology, will discuss using maps to share information with and gather data from stakeholder groups.
The target audience is planners, emergency managers, city officials, community activists, those with coastal commercial and industry interests—anyone who wants to use maps to engage stakeholders.
Attendees can receive one hour of certification maintenance credit through the American Institute of Certified Planners.
