Conducting Statutory-Compliant Vulnerability Assessments: Relevant Data, Resources & Incorporating Rainfall
August 8, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am
In partnership with the Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Compact, environmental consulting firm Hazen and Sawyer will present a capacity-building workshop on Tuesday, August 8. for local governments and the consulting community that provides vulnerability assessment services to local governments across the region. This workshop is particularly well-suited for communities that have fewer internal resources to advance vulnerability assessments.
The workshop will build upon information presented at the Compact workshop “Readying Southeast Florida Communities for Resiliency Funding: Leveraging Existing Data and Best Practices for Vulnerability Assessments” hosted in August of 2021.
The workshop is designed to share lessons learned regarding the vulnerability assessment processes and key takeaways and best practices for engagement through the vulnerability assessment process. The workshop will also outline the state requirements and resources available to local governments, identify and share relevant regional and county-level data sets, and present methodology related to the incorporation of rainfall flood inundation.
