Event Navigation

The purpose of this webinar series is to highlight innovation through examples of on-the-ground practice in adaptation through a variety of sectors and regions. The webinar series will highlight private service providers and their contribution through partnerships with a diversity of collaborators to advance the adaptation field and embody innovation and excellence in practice.

Webinar 1: Reducing the risk of coastal flooding through redesigned storm standards, updated codes, and new infrastructure design.

Join the American Society of Adaptation Professionals & American Society of Civil Engineers to hear how two coastal communities have leveraged sustained partnerships to understand their local flooding risk, pass forward looking building and zoning codes, and prioritize nature based solutions to address those risks.

Jennifer Jurado, Chief Resilience Officer and Director of the Environmental Planning and Community Resilience Division from Broward County, Fl will share how years of partnership and collaboration has led to recently passed standards and codes that address real risks and have wide support across key economic sectors.

Brian Batten, Senior Scientist with Dewberry, & C.J. Bodnar, Professional Engineer with the City of Virginia Beach will discuss how the strong partnership between Dewberry and the City has led to Virginia Beach’s remarkable Sea Level Wise program and proposed stormwater and drainage standards that are now under review.

Leaders from ASAP & ASCE will join a panel discussion highlighting how lessons from these two communities should and can be transferred to communities across the country and the role ASAP & ASCE can play in that knowledge transfer.
