Thursday, March 23, 2017. 2:00 PM. Eastern Time. Webinar: Post-Disaster Temporary Housing: Urban Planning Considerations. Shannon S. Van Zandt, Texas A&M University and Thomas A. Womeldurf, Institute for Building Technology & Safety (IBTS). Sponsored by American Planning Association (APA) and the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM). More information here.

 

In cooperation with the American Planning Association (APA), the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) presents the March 2017 Planning Information Exchange (PIE) webinar. PIE is a free quarterly webinar series focusing on tools, best practices, and strategies on the role of hazard mitigation planning and its connections with recovery planning and preparedness.

 

After large scale disasters, the mission of temporary housing is critical. Much has changed since Katrina - one of the largest temporary housing operations in modern history: the technology to construct temporary housing, considerations for resiliency, the development and use of the National Disaster Recovery Framework, and a more integrated approach to disaster recovery. Future disasters, especially in anticipation of more intense storms, may challenge us further.
