How hazard mitigation and water resource planning flow together

Discover the power of collaboration.

Mitigation planning and water resource programs share common goals. However, they often exist in silos. By integrating program efforts, you can build resilience. When planners and water resource managers work together, they can advance community priorities, reduce disaster risk and safeguard vital water resources.

Mitigation and water resource planning can flow together in many ways. Knowing when and where to coordinate is crucial. This webinar will help you navigate the challenges and opportunities of cross-sector planning. Hear about two separate efforts, their benefits within a community and how to streamline work and create cost-effective solutions.

Learn about a watershed approach used in Iowa to reduce flooding. Learn about work in Kentucky where the Louisville Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) has integrated green infrastructure into flood mitigation projects.
