The rising costs and dangers associated with coastal flooding are motivating communities to assess the people, places, and resources at risk. The Southeast & Caribbean Climate Community of Practice will present a one-hour webinar on using flood exposure maps on Thursday, June 15, 2017, at 1:00 PM EDT.
WEBINAR: Wednesday, January 18, 2017 | 1:00 PM–1:30 PM EST
In this 30-minute session, NOAA's National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) Executive Director Veva Deheza will take the audience on a tour of the Drought Outlook, Current Drought, and Soil Moisture sections of the Water Resources Dashboard.
Urban and rural communities have a new source of information and tools to help them plan and prepare for weather- and climate-related impacts: the new Built Environment topic in the U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit can help community leaders and businesses address a wide range of risks facing cities and towns.
The National Flood Insurance Program's Community Rating System (CRS) rewards communities that go above and beyond minimum flood safety requirements. In addition to benefitting from reduced risk of flooding, residents of participating communities can receive a discount on flood insurance. Information from this Webinar can help floodplain managers and others implement practical methods to improve their communities' CRS scores.
We're proud to launch a design refresh for the U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit. Based on user feedback, we've implemented new designs to simplify navigation, build a responsive layout for all platforms, and provide more resources and information on building climate resilience.
