2015 Interagency Flood Risk Management Workshop
Post Workshop Outcomes
Theme of the Workshop: Explore resilience as an organizing framework. What do the broader developing principles and specific initiatives associated with resilience offer for improving flood risk management generally and interagency flood risk management projects specifically? What achievements can flood risk management offer that support and further resilience?
During the workshop, each participating state will be able to develop interagency project ideas through a series of three exercises, with each exercise building on the previous one. Each small group will include a state representative, a USACE flood risk manager or Silver Jackets Coordinator, and other available experts including those from other agencies. Small group exercises will integrate opportunities drawn from a resilience framework into their project ideas; each group will also receive feedback from other selected small groups on their work. By the end of the linked exercises, each state's original idea will be more fully developed and documented, useful for future funding opportunities and strengthened partnership approaches.
