The Planning Information Exchange (PIE) will present a free webinar on Thursday, July 7 2016, 1:00 – 2:00 PM entitled “Combining Climate Adaptation and Hazard Mitigation Plans.”

Speakers include Kristin Baja, a Climate and Resilience Planner from the Baltimore City Office of Sustainability and Sherrie Collins, the Emergency Manager of Monterey County, California. James Schwab, Manager of APA’s Hazards Planning Center, will moderate as they discuss:
• The basic premise of Baltimore’s effort to merge its climate adaptation plan with the update of its hazard mitigation plan
• Issues Baltimore has experienced or will experience (e.g., increased nuisance flooding)
• Nature and scope of the Monterey County plan
• Challenges in Monterey County’s multijurisdictional approach
• And much more

The PIE is a free eight-part quarterly webinar series presented by the American Planning Association (APA) and the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM). The series is funded through a cooperative agreement with FEMA through the RiskMAP Cooperating Technical Partners (CTP) program. The PIE focuses on tools, best practices, and strategies on the role of hazard mitigation planning and its connections with recovery planning and preparedness. The PIE webinars provide one continuing maintenance (CM) credit for the American Institute of Certified Planners and one continuing education credit (CEC) for Certified Floodplain Managers.
