Hazards Planning Center
Planning Information Exchange
With a new award agreement granted by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the successful Planning Information Exchange (PIE) webinar series has been extended for two additional years, starting October 1, 2018. APA will continue to act as the lead in an agreement with FEMA, with the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) as a partner. The quarterly webinars will continue to revolve around four central themes:
- The information exchange focuses on all hazards.
- The information exchange focuses primarily on mitigation planning but also its connections with recovery planning and preparedness.
- APA and ASFPM act as co-conveners of all planning exchange webinars. This means that both organizations will use their respective web-based meeting platforms to set up, register, drive, facilitate, record, and provide technical support for all webinar meetings.
- Planning exchange hosts select topics and commit to moderate, present, and lead the planning exchange webinars.

Many of the top universities in the United States invest time, energy and financial resources into researching the issues that come with natural disasters. Indeed, several universities have founded entire disaster research centers to draw conclusions from data and make recommendations for hazard mitigation practices. This webinar will convene national experts and thought leaders from three universities — the University of Colorado’s Natural Hazards Center, Texas A&M University, and the University of North Carolina's Coastal Resilience Center — to lay out the scope of current research into disasters, hazard mitigation and resilience, as well as discuss what the implications of that research mean for the future.
ASFPM Executive Director Chad Berginnis, will moderate as Lori Peek, Sam Brody, and Gavin Smith discuss the most exciting, up-to-date hazard mitigation and resilience research being undertaken by each of their organizations.
In this webinar the presenters will:
- Acquaint practicing planners and floodplain managers with some of the leading research universities on these topics and the resources that their universities have to offer.
- Identify current research projects and focus areas.
- Help better link academia with the practitioner community.
- Provide feedback from the practitioner perspective on potential research topics
