In this episode of the APA Podcast, Jim Schwab, FAICP, talks with Jeffrey Payne, director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Office for Coastal Management (OCM), and Chad Berginnis, executive director of the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM). Payne and Berginnis discuss what NOAA is seeking to achieve through the Regional Coastal Resilience program, as well as what the two organizations will be doing over the next three years as they complete the project “Building Coastal Resilience through Capital Improvements Planning: Guidance for Practitioners.”
