The Association of State Floodplain Managers is currently working to strengthen coastal community resilience through the development of a web-based coastal management training guide and an in-person training program for coastal counties in partnership with the National Association of Counties, Coastal States Organization and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Office for Coastal Management.
The first step in this process is a survey that seeks to determine what coastal management strategies communities are employing, and how local elected officials and professional staff communicate regarding coastal management issues. The survey will only take a few minutes to complete, and is targeted toward elected officials, community planners, floodplain and emergency managers, and others involved in coastal management.
The information you provide will allow us to better identify resources and support communities with improving community resilience nationwide. The outcomes of this project will influence development of the Strengthening Coastal Communities Resilience program, from the online guide to the in-person workshops.
We ask that you please complete the survey (www.naco.org/CoastalCommunitiesSurvey) to the best of your ability to help us compile as comprehensive an inventory as possible. Thank you in advance for your participation.
