When it rains, it pours: a dialogue on urban flooding across the U.S.
October 28, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
This session will educate participants on the causes of urban flooding, how urban flooding differs from river and coastal flooding, and how climate change is driving more frequent and dangerous urban flooding disasters. Participants will gain knowledge of how the decisions we make as planners can exacerbate the problem or help to improve outcomes. Panelists will share case studies from across the U.S., with examples of how different local climate conditions and land use patterns can lead to urban flooding. The panel will describe the work of local agencies, non-profits, and residents to identify and implement solutions. The discussion will consider the role of planners in addressing this challenge.
