Corps to Hold Webinar on NACCS Study
- Business & Finance
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host today at 3 p.m. a webinar to discuss with the media the results of a two-year study that evaluated coastal storm and flood risk to vulnerable populations, property, ecosystems, and infrastructure in areas of the Northeast that were affected by Hurricane Sandy.
The study, known as the North Atlantic Coast Comprehensive Study (NACCS), brought together experts from federal, state, and local government agencies, as well as non-governmental organizations and academia, to assess the flood risks facing coastal communities and ecosystems and collaboratively develop a coastal storm risk management framework to address increasing risks, which are driven in part by increased frequency and intensity of storm events and rising sea levels due to a changing climate.
During the webinar, experts will provide a short overview of the study’s findings and will be available to answer questions.
