View Webinar

This webinar, recorded in February 2020, discusses the opportunities and challenges of climate-smart hazard planning. The field of emergency management has been helping communities assess, plan for, and respond to extreme weather events and other disasters for decades. However, the approaches developed to help communities assess the risk and the potential impacts of extreme weather events have rarely been updated to include climate change. While requirements at the local level vary state by state, there is an opportunity to mainstream adaptation planning and preparedness into the hazard mitigation process. The webinar discusses ways to effectively merge these two fields and ensure that communities are planning and preparing for both current and future hazards. The Summer Rewind will feature the February 2020 recording along with a live question and answer session with Kristin Baja of Urban Sustainability Directors Network.

February 2020 Speakers:

Kristin Baja, Urban Sustainability Directors Network

Eric Chapman, Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians

Jonathan Olds, FEMA- Region 10

Sascha Petersen, Adaptation International
