This training connects communities with an expert to hear their experience with engaging stakeholders in discussions about hazards and risks.
The rising costs and dangers associated with coastal flooding are motivating communities to assess the people, places, and resources at risk. NOAA Digital Coast’s Using Flood Exposure Maps webinar connects communities with experts who have used maps to engage stakeholders in discussions about local hazards and risk. At the end of the training, participants are able to recognize challenges and techniques for using these maps to facilitate productive conversations about resilience.

Lynker staff worked to spread the word utilizing a variety of forms of outreach.
