CLIMATE ACADEMY: Nature-Based Hazard Mitigation Through FEMA Mitigation Grants

Hybrid approaches to hazard mitigation that combine gray infrastructure with nature-based solutions (NBS) have been shown to mitigate risks associated with flooding (riverine and coastal) and wildfire. Join members of AECOM and The Nature Conservancy as they provide a brief overview of NBS, funding opportunities through the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Hazard Mitigation Assistance grants, and how to maximize benefits for a given project.
