Improving Community Resilience with RiskMAP

Improving Community Resilience with RiskMAP

TCG assisted Dewberry, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Region 2, and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) with the RiskMAP Discovery process in three watersheds in New York State. The goal of the project is to improve community resiliency to flood losses in the selected watersheds by increasing stakeholder understanding of the tools and processes available for risk-based community planning, mitigation action, and sustainable development. This involves facilitating dialogue within communities to cultivate a working relationship between FEMA, State agencies, local officials, and watershed stakeholders.
