Join us as we explore new approaches to building community resilience!
This event will highlight panel sessions with interactive discussions focused on three topic areas:
At-risk populations: This session focuses on proactive thinking, planning, and resilience building for at-risk populations. What innovative approaches are being used to help at-risk populations better prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters?
Watershed management: This session highlights innovative watershed management approaches that are taking place in the nation. What can we learn from other mature and successful watershed management programs?
Flood mapping, risk, and insurance: This session explores methods to convey flood risk to local residents. What approaches are effective at helping people understand their risk and better prepare for and mitigate against floods?
This event will bring together experts, practitioners, and other stakeholders from the public, private, nonprofit, and academic communities and the general public to learn and share information relevant to building resilience to floods and other disasters in Cedar Rapids.
