Summarize accomplishments from:
Regional Priority Approach Description
Approach - Gain a better understanding of future social, economic, and political factors (such as population growth) that will affect habitat.
Desired Outcome - Improved understanding of future population growth, flood risks and associated costs enables improved multi-benefit floodplain planning.
Policy Needs - N/A
- Develop population growth projections in floodplains.
- Develop cost subsidy analyses that show the cost of developing in a floodplain considering future flood risk conditions.
- Update climate change projections to strengthen identification of areas at high risk for flooding.
- Update the definition of the flood risk to include future probabilities.
- Describe who the intended users of the final product will be and how they will engage in the project.
- Describe the datasets, protocols, and analyses that will be used.
- Describe how you will consider environmental justice, transportation, and housing affordability in the project.
- Consider environmental justice, transportation, and housing affordability implications of urban infill.
Local Context - Local context provides additional specificity on how a Regional Priority approach should be implemented in each local area; examples include sequencing, partners to consider, and critical areas. Local context for this Regional Priority approach is available here.
