Climate change and extreme weather events are compounding the impact of natural hazards such as flooding, landslides, and heat waves. Aging infrastructure in conjunction with stronger more frequent storms are a rising challenge to communities. This “new normal” is constantly testing traditional ideas on hazard mitigation and how communities recover from disasters.

Nature-based solutions or Green Infrastructure can reduce damage from natural hazards as well as (or better than) traditional engineered projects, often at less cost.

What are the Webinar Topics:  The webinar series will discuss the whys, whats, and how-tos of utilizing natural solutions as mitigation measures. The webinar series will cover topics like: planning tools, resources, NBS examples, funding sources, regulations and more.  

Who Should Attend:  The series is geared toward planners, elected officials, engineers, and others working to improve resilience in Metro areas, small cities, suburban, or rural areas in and around the Commonwealth.

Speakers: we have speakers from federal and state and local organizations, including our NBS Team.
