Future Conditions and Hazard Mitigation Planning
Take a coffee break with us to learn how climate change could impact the risk assessment and mitigation strategies outlined in your Hazard Mitigation Plan.
Date: May 18, 2022
Time: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
The time to plan for future conditions is now. In this training, participants will learn about the four factors that FEMA includes in ‘future conditions’: climate change, population change, demographic change, and land use/development change and how to integrate them into a Hazard Mitigation Plan. This webinar will highlight examples of how future conditions can impact risk assessment and the development of effective mitigation strategies in order to respond to a changing world.
