Future-Proofing Communities

Nearly 15 million people live in a FEMA-designated 100-year floodplain and more than 46 million homes are located in the wildland-urban interface. Millions more are left in the dark, often in extremely hot or freezing temperatures, after severe storms disrupt power. As disasters continue to increase in frequency and intensity, protecting people and housing units from climate impacts is a critical component to preserving supply. Join this session to explore strategies for protecting communities from fires, floods, and power outages. This session is eligible for 1.25 AICP credits. Sign-in sheets will be available at the conference.
