Building Resilience Workshop: Implementing Innovative, Sustainable Flood Mitigation Solutions for the Gulf Coast

Source: http://www.resilienceworkshop.org/index.html (19 Feb. 2010)
The primary objectives of the Building Resilience Workshop are to bring innovative flood mitigation techniques successfully used in Germany and the Netherlands to the attention of North American practitioners, policy-makers and community stakeholders, and to foster international collaboration to develop local solutions. The information exchange will include sustainable flood mitigation practices and strategies to create safe, permanent approaches to protect established communities and cultures in the face of impending environmental changes.

In the short term, the workshop will bring together engineers, architects, planners and academic researchers specializing in sustainable flood protection practices with policy makers, community organizers and public officials, helping to expand the knowledge base, build exchange networks among participants, and develop solutions. In the long term, the workshop will provide a springboard for the sharing of sustainable, low-impact technologies that save lives and make vulnerable communities, in North America and elsewhere, more resilient to climate change.
