ABSTRACT: Municipalities are facing increased risks of flooding due to climate change. Adapting neighborhoods and infrastructure to the risks of flooding and sea level rise in the best ways possible will shape future municipal work and sets the framework for this presentation. _x000D_
This presentation will explore how GIS based risk and vulnerability assessments can be used to assess the local municipal situation and to develop solutions best-aligned with the community’s needs. Examples will draw from our recent work with the City of Fairhaven, Massachusetts which has undergone the process of developing a new hazard mitigation plan. We will highlight examples from our GIS based risk and vulnerability assessments which identified flood risks and sea level rise as the most critical issues. In closing, we will give examples for flood protection and stormwater design measures.
