Over the past decade, the U.S. has seen an increase in the number of high-magnitude storm events causing massive destruction and an increase in sea level rise. Hurricanes Katrina, Irene and Sandy left expansive areas of death, devastation and an increasing need to build risk reduction infrastructure and resilience among coastline communities. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) North Atlantic Division joined officials from public and private sectors in a year-long comprehensive study to develop a framework for diminishing coastal storm damage. 

In this interactive webinar, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, North Atlantic Coastal Comprehensive Study Command Center, will brief attendees regarding approaches to mitigate flood risks in coastal communities; engage in an overview of the business case for resilient and sustainable communities; and hear the highlights of the $19.5 million North Atlantic Coast Comprehensive Study before it hits Congress!
