Narrative

Course description: This course inspires coastal managers and planners to plan and implement green infrastructure projects to reduce coastal natural hazards in their community. The course consists of two parts ⎼ a self-guided online module that covers the basics and an in-person one-day event where participants interact with their peers and local experts. After completing the course, participants will be able to describe the green infrastructure practices that can reduce hazard impacts and build resilience in their community and list considerations for choosing techniques. Participants will work together to develop the beginnings of a green infrastructure plan that considers co-benefits, costs, and implementation through community engagement, partnerships, funding, and policy.

Continuing education credits: Participants can earn six hours of certification maintenance credits approved by the American Institute of Certified Planners and five core continuing education credits through Association of State Floodplain Managers.
