Flood Resilience and Adaptation Planning in the U.S.: Challenges and Opportunities
March 8, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
The frequency and severity of flood-inducing storms is projected to rise over the next several decades, placing a premium on the need to adapt now and better prepare communities for current and future impacts of climate change.
The State Resilience Partnership, a network of organizations committed to support state planning and implementation efforts—convened by The Pew Charitable Trusts and the American Flood Coalition—conducted first-of-its-kind research on resilience and adaptation planning in the U.S. Please join us for a conversation with our research partner, the Urban Institute and state Chief Resilience Officers to discuss how state governments across the country are rising to the challenge with long-range adaptation plans and integrated resilience efforts across sectors.
Keynote Speaker: White House Council on Environmental Quality Chair Brenda Mallory will discuss resilience and adaptation initiatives of the Biden-Harris Administration and opportunities for state and federal partnerships in the Administration’s ‘whole-of-government’ approach to climate adaptation and resilience.
