Managing Floods: Tapping into Financial Resources and Building Collaborative Relationships to Better  Protect Your Community

 

This panel will discuss mitigating the threat of floods, and how low-income communities, often the most vulnerable to these types of natural disasters, can build trust and communication and develop collaborative relationships with water agencies and other neighbors. These threats are so great, no city can go it alone.

Investing in Infrastructure: Managing Stormwater to Increase Supplies

But local leaders need to be collaborative with public works departments, water agencies, county flood control departments, and learn to speak each other’s language.
