Date: Monday, April 15
Due to factors such as climate change, population growth, and community development patterns, the nation continues to experience increasing natural-disaster threat levels. Strategies for hazard mitigation, sustainability, and resilience, however, are complex for planners to implement. This session will present new approaches for drawing on the expertise of many professions in an integrated fashion so that planners have a defined role in pre-disaster preparedness and post-disaster recovery, including plans with stronger ties to resilience and multi-hazard risk avoidance.
