Conducting Vulnerability Assessments: Flooding

Conducting Vulnerability Assessments: Flooding

Planning and Process Track

Participants in this session gained a comprehensive practical understanding of how to conduct a vulnerability assessment of their community with regards to the effects of flooding, whether generated by precipitation or short-term sea-level rise, and mitigating the effects on city functions.

This session covered:
Identifying zones of risk from projected flooding
How best to engage in dialogue about future threats
How best to prioritize a response to impacts

Participants left this session with tools to communicate effectively and devise regional adaptation strategies with the participation of a wide-range of stakeholders from municipal governments, active community groups, NGOs and Federal agencies.

Moderator: Catherine Morris, Senior Mediator & Facilitator – Consensus Building Institute

Nancy Gassman, Assistant Director of Public Works – City of Fort Lauderdale
