The National Association of Environmental Professionals (NAEP) invites you to attend an educational webinar on “The Role of the Environmental Professional in Disaster Preparedness, Planning, and Recovery.” This webinar addresses the best practices, federal planning, and land use planning initiatives being developed to aid in the resiliency of our communities in the face of natural disaster.
With the recent events in the Philippines and domestic emergencies from extreme winter events, as well as recovery from Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina, there is a growing question about the role of the environmental professional in planning for such events and the integration of related information into the environmental process. Major environmental disasters, such as super storms, flooding, and wildfire, are increasing in both frequency and intensity. Environmental professionals have the potential to be invaluable in environmental disaster preparedness and disaster recovery due to their diverse skill sets, such as nimble and adaptive resource management, regulatory compliance and development, and public coordination. . This webinar aims to evaluate the role of environmental professionals in disaster preparedness and recovery both in the past and in looking forward.
