Presentation Transcript


By their very nature,mitigation options each seek to change some component of either the physical or social fabric of a community.

Session 29


In a vacuum, without any local context, risks would be much easier to address because mitigation decisions would be purely technical, or engineering-based, in nature.

Session 29


“[mitigation] plans shall include an identification, evaluation, and prioritization of cost-effective, environmentally sound, and technically feasible mitigation actions and activities [considered] and an explanation of how each activity contributes to the overall mitigation strategy.”-DMA 2000

Session 29


“[The mitigation strategy section shall include] an action plan describing how the actions identified in section (c)(3)(ii) will be prioritized, implemented, and administered by the local jurisdiction. Prioritization shall include a special emphasis on the extent to which benefits are maximized according to a cost benefit review of the proposed projects and their associated costs.”-DMA 2000
