Coastal flood risk reduction

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa (UH Mānoa)

Type: Training Course Date: 06 Jun 2012 Location: United States of America (Honolulu, Hawaii)

This is a one-day performance level training course that develops the participant's ability to apply coastal risk reduction and opportunity enhancement measures to coastal floodplain management. The course format is as follows:

• Modules 1 and 2 will introduce the course scenario, with Module 2 concluding with an activity requiring teams of learners to define one or more scenario-appropriate problems.

• Modules 3, 4, and 5 will discuss both the risks and opportunities that are associated with natural coastal processes and their relationships with the manmade environment. These modules will conclude with practical exercises in which student teams identify risks and opportunities associated with the problems identified in the previous team activity.

• Module 6 will present capabilities that are available to coastal communities, and will conclude with teams developing "No Adverse Impact" (NAI) strategies and applying and designing these strategies to reduce risks and enhance the coastal opportunities associated with their scenario-driven problems. The strategies will be developed within the context of each emergency management phase: prevention/mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.

• Module 7 will conclude the course with a general discussion of strategies presented within the context of resulting "No Adverse Impact", resiliency, and administration requirements.
