Georgetown Climate Center: Decreasing Flood Risk through Regional Collaborations: Lessons from the Field

Every year, flooding causes billions of dollars in damage across the U.S. with devastating losses for individuals, families, and communities. Join this webinar hosted by the Georgetown Climate Center (GCC) and Headwaters Economics that examines the disconnect between the impacts of major flooding and the availability of federal funding through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and Inflation Reduction Act. Local governments often lack the capacity and resources to access these funds, making it challenging for communities who need this assistance the most to benefit from it. The webinar will present a fresh report that showcase collaborative efforts in the Midwest region between local governments and stakeholders in finding solutions. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the research findings and gain insights from the final report.
