Integrating climate change and disaster mitigation.
The following is being shared due to the need for all of us to take action on disaster mitigation as it applies to climate change:
"FEMA Region 3 is hosting a webinar series for hazard mitigation planners and other partners interested in reducing risk in their communities. These 'Coffee Breaks' are hour-long webinar sessions hosted every other month to provide mitigation best practices and highlight the work happening at federal, regional, state, and community levels to reduce risk across the region.
"The Coffee Breaks are open to everyone involved in hazard mitigation, resiliency, or risk reduction planning in the public and private sectors, which includes community planners, emergency managers, floodplain managers, GIS technicians, government officials, contractors, and anyone else involved in the development and implementation of hazard mitigation and risk reduction strategies.
"Connecting Climate Change to Hazard Mitigation Planning
"March 17, 2021 11AM ET - 12PM ET
"Communities throughout FEMA Region 3 are no stranger to the increasing frequency and severity of natural disasters caused by climate change. Intense storms, heat waves, and extreme flooding all significantly challenge our communities and result in cascading impacts that we need to better prepare for. This webinar will explore where to get data on climate change and how to effectively support mitigation through incorporating this data into hazard mitigation planning efforts."
