Georgia State Flood Risk Symposium
March 21, 2013
Approximately 150 experts from around Georgia have been invited to be a part of this day-long event. The purpose is to bring together a variety of disciplines, and leading experts within those disciplines, to address how we, as a group, can successfully not only manage our flood risk, here within the State, but also how we can manage our valuable floodplain resources, as well!
Selected experts will convene to explore the program and policy implications of “Managing Flood Risks and Floodplain Resources”, including how the risk management concept and its attendant techniques could be applied to minimize flood risk to humans, the built environment, infrastructure, society, and the natural functions and resources of floodplains. It is critical that we protect the beneficial functions of the natural floodplain to reduce flood damages across Georgia. Every effort must be made to minimize the number of encroachments on the natural floodplains of our rivers and streams.
