    County-Level Approaches to Coastal Resilience: Trends, Costs, and the Importance of Community Wide Efforts

    Disasters, whether natural or man-made, have significant impacts on counties across the United States. When a disaster strikes, counties are the first government entity to cope with any damages or threat to human life associated with the disaster. To decrease the chances of loss of life, and post-disaster recovery costs, county governments have focused their efforts on pre-disaster mitigation efforts which have proven returns on investment at the state and federal level. Join NACo on September 16th, 2020 for a webinar on county trends in disaster mitigation, costs and returns for some of those mitigation efforts, and perspectives on the importance of community-wide mitigation approaches.
