    Here’s a webinar opportunity from the Southeast and Caribbean Climate CoP:

    Please join the Southeast & Caribbean Climate Community of Practice
    for a webinar on
    Leveraging the Community Rating System for Climate Adaptation

    How can communities both save money and adapt to climate impacts like increased flooding? Learning how to take advantage of the National Flood Insurance Program’s Community Rating System (CRS) is a great place to start. The CRS is a voluntary incentive program that recognizes and encourages community floodplain management activities that exceed the minimum NFIP requirements. As a result, flood insurance premium rates for local government, businesses and residents are discounted to reflect the reduced flood risk resulting from community actions.

    Please join the Southeast and Caribbean Climate Community of Practice at 2:00 pm on Wednesday, March 23, 2015, as we listen to Shana Jones, Shannon Jarbeau, Ed DiTommaso, and Allison Hardin share their knowledge and experience on the topic.
