Our network

Who is the FbD Network?

​The Floodplains by Design (FbD) network is made up of more than 700 floodplain practitioners across Washington State and beyond. Floodplain practitioners are an ever-changing audience within flood, land use and natural resource management sectors. Individuals come from large and small organizations, from project heavy watersheds to locations with isolated solo practitioners. The FbD network is fortunate to have members with a range of experience, including practitioners with decades of involvement in basin-scale planning, to others that are interested in bringing integrated floodplain management (IFM) to their watershed for the first time. Members represent many interests and skills, from community organizers, to farmers, to engineers, to fishery industry professionals, recreational advocates, tribal representatives, non-profits, and state and federal agency practitioners. It is a network that may not agree on everything, but, individual actors do agree on the importance of a collaborative approach to decision making and bringing together multiple interests in order to accelerate actions that create a more resilient future for people and nature.
