Reducing the vulnerability of the built environment dramatically improves resiliency in the face of natural climate and geologic events. This page is intended as a resource to help inspire safer human habitation through the geographic integration of science, engineering, economics and public policy. I highlight newsworthy events and share best practices that improve planning and locational decisions, with the goal of reducing the loss of life and property.
I wanted to share the link to FEMA's excellent collection of best practices for mitigating risks from natural hazards. Well worth the time to see what's there. Be sure to bookmark it or download it for further reference. Here it is.
