More Resources for Resilience:
Florida’s Adaptation Planning Guidebook and the Gulf of Mexico Mitigation Guidebook

Tuesday, January 22, 2019
11:00 a.m. EST

Please join us as we explore two new resilience resources.

Whitney Gray will share Florida DEP’s new Adaptation Planning Guidebook.  The Guidebook is scalable and intended to be used by local government planners in cities and counties of any size, providing a framework to develop an initial, or update an existing, adaptation plan.  It focuses on 4 steps:  Establish the Context, Assess Vulnerability, Identify Adaptation Strategies, and Plan Strategy Implementation.  The Guidebook contains best practices and resources useful to any coastal community.

Hank Hodde with Smart Home America will share the Gulf of Mexico Mitigation Guidebook.  His presentation will explain how this new resource can be used for education and outreach activities with community stakeholders. It provides collaborators, practitioners, and researchers with an overview of federal and state-based mitigation programs, insurance and tax incentives for construction standards, and policies that promote resilient practices to wind hazards.

This is a free webinar, and participation is first-come, first-served.  Pre-registration is not required.
