Silver Jackets Webinar Describes Ashland, Oregon Pilot Project for Integrating Nature-based Solutions into Natural Hazard Mitigation Plans

FEMA and EPA have partnered on several pilot project efforts promoting integration of green infrastructure and low impact development (GI/LID) strategies into Natural Hazard Mitigation Plans (NHMPs) to reduce natural hazards risk.  On December 12, Josh Bruce (University of Oregon) and Krista Mendelman (Environmental Protection Agency) gave a Silver Jackets webinar presentation about the City of Ashland, Oregon NHMP Pilot Project.   The Oregon Partnership for Disaster Resilience at the University of Oregon used its energy, expertise and innovation to work with the community and other partners to update the existing NHMP.  Steps included review of ordinances and the existing NHMP actions, and completing GIS assessments and ecosystem service evaluations to identify opportunities to integrate GI/LID mitigation actions.  The presentation discussed these steps, reviewed GI/LID recommendations, and shared lessons learned from the process.

The presenters included:

  • Krista Mendelman, Environmental Protection Agency
  • Josh Bruce, Oregon Partnership for Disaster Resilience, University of Oregon

The presentation (pdf, 4.68 MB), recorded session (mp3, 10.9 MB), and transcript (pdf, 209 KB) are available.

Date: December 12, 2018
