Planning Information Exchange Webinar

Free Planning Webinar to Focus on Planning for Drought and Cascading Hazards


Free Planning Webinar to Focus on Planning for Drought and Cascading Hazards
FEMA continues to partner with the American Planning Association (APA) and the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) to offer a free quarterly webinar series to share challenges, best practices, and evolving methods and techniques in hazard mitigation planning. The purpose of the webinar series is to encourage peer-to-peer learning and the exchange of information among a national and international audience.

The Planning Information Exchange (PIE) focuses on multi-hazard mitigation planning, and it also emphasizes the connections with recovery planning and preparedness. APA and ASFPM are co-conveners of all webinars and select topics and presenters. Participants can earn one continuing education credit through APA and ASFPM.

The next webinar will be August 15, 2019 at 2:00PM ET on Planning for Drought and Cascading Hazards with Dr. Cody Knutson, Research Professor and Drought Planning Coordinator at the National Drought Mitigation Center, and Jeff Brislawn, CFM, hazard mitigation and emergency management consultant with Wood Environment and Infrastructure Solutions. Participants will learn about:

• Specific challenges and opportunities in planning for drought and cascading natural hazards
• Practical approaches to assessing local and regional drought vulnerability
• Methods for integrating drought and drought-related impacts into multi-hazard mitigation planning
• Resources and tools that can help planners and floodplain managers plan for drought in a multi-hazards context.

To register for this PIE, or to view recordings of prior webinars, visit the APA website.
