Resilient By Design: Planner's Role in Disaster Preparedness, Part II

Building on BAPDA's Fall 2018 Meeting, Out Smarting Disaster: The Planner's Professional Role in Disaster Preparedness and Recovery, we will take a deeper dive into pre-disaster planning efforts and design-thinking on resilience including adaptation strategies, equity, regional initiatives and goals. The session will also cover recent state legislation (SB 379) articulating a shared vision and goals for a resilient region.

Meeting content will include topical resilience presentations delving into the plans, policies and actions necessary for local jurisdictions to prepare for the immediate and longer-term impacts of climate change. This meeting is also a key opportunity to weigh in on regional resilience strategies proposed for Plan Bay Area 2050.
