Is community sustainability always in sync with hazard planning objectives? Are there ever competing agendas? Are we doing our best to integrate?
In order to truly increase the resiliency of communities to all hazards, mitigation and adaptation strategies must be integrated throughout the local planning framework – that is, the collection of plans, policies, codes, programs and other instruments that guide community development or redevelopment. This session will share practical examples and best practices for achieving such integration in a holistic manner that not only reduces future disaster risk, but also effectively supports other social, economic, and environmental objectives.
