Many ways to engage
Integrated floodplain management is a systems based approach, at the heart of which is the idea that the most complex problems are solved by helping people work together. The FbD network brings together floodplain managers, Tribal leaders, habitat biologists, farmers, project managers, funding agencies, elected officials and concerned citizens that want their communities and ecosystems to be safer, healthier, and more resilient. Explore the different ways to engage below.
“What the city has done [is]…giving the river more space, keeping more flow in the river so that flow doesn’t have to go through town. In turn, we’ve done a much better job now of preparing for flooding disasters.”
