June 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event

This Lunch & Learn explores the need for acquisitions and buyouts from the perspective of Washington State EMD’s newly created Disaster Resilience Program and from research and expertise from the Delaware Disaster Research Center.  Exploration includes perspectives of flood risk and how local communities are taking action to reduce post-disaster losses, with a focus on costs, time, and impacts.

Will be updated with additional details soon.

To be added to the Lunch & Learn calendar invites, email Allan Warren, awarren@b-e-f.org.

The FbD Lunch & Learn Series is open to everyone. The topics of the monthly Lunch & Learn Series are informed by the Floodplains by Design network of practitioners and partners. If you would like to explore some of the topics and themes that emerged from our 2024 Input Gathering, you can view the themes here.
