Webinar: A Systematic Approach to Building Resilient Communities
Enhancing Capacity to Respond to Future Disasters in the Gulf of Mexico

Tuesday 21 July 2020

NOAA’s Coastal Resilience Grants fund projects that improve a community’s ability to weather coastal storms. This webinar is one in a series designed to share lessons learned from these projects.

This interactive webinar will highlight work led by the Gulf of Mexico Alliance and Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant. The project engaged communities by using innovative methods and a systematic approach.  Throughout the effort, project leaders say these three truths became evident:

  • New tools are not always necessary to build resilience.
  • Small grant programs can fill a real need.
  • Community of Practice groups work.
