Planning Information Exchange Webinar: Equitable Hazard Mitigation: Practice-Informed Recommendations for Change
The American Planning Association and Association of State Floodplain Managers invites you to register for the Planning Information Exchange (PIE) webinar, “Equitable Hazard Mitigation: Practice-Informed Recommendations for Change”.
Date: July 25, 2022
Time: 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Hazard mitigation can play an important role in promoting equitable outcomes for historically marginalized communities. Portland, Oregon, is working with the community to meet immediate needs and reduce future risks associated with floods, heat, and other hazards. Join the next PIE webinar to learn more about how Portland identified context-sensitive solutions by integrating public engagement activities, including innovative outreach strategies, implementation strategies, and collaboration between local agencies with hazard mitigation and emergency management functions to support a more resilient future.
This webinar focuses on how to apply an equity lens to ongoing hazard mitigation planning processes and elevating underrepresented voices and implementing solutions for people experiencing disproportionate impacts from local hazards. Participants will learn about some of Portland’s successful strategies and some efforts that did not work as well.
Eligible participants will receive 1 CM toward AICP and 1 CEC for CFM.
Jonna Papaefthimiou, Chief Resilience Officer for the City of Portland, Oregon.
