NAI Workshop - July 8, 2015 - Chicago, IL

Planning for the Resilient Chicago: Urban Flood Management Through No Adverse Impact and Green Infrastructure workshop began in the winter of 2015 when staff from the Wisconsin and Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant expressed interest coordinating two additional modeled on the "Great Lakes Community Resilience: A No Adverse Impact Approach" workshop delivered in Milwaukee Wisconsin in August 2014. With funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Coastal Storms Program (NOAA CSP), ASFPM and Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant partnered with representatives from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources Coastal Management Program and the Midwestern Regional Climate Center to develop a target audience, objectives and agenda for this day-long event.
Specifically this workshop was designed to provide participants with an opportunity to learn about the actions local governments can take to address the issue of urban flooding in the greater Chicago metropolitan area by:

1. Applying the No Adverse Impact (NAI) framework for floodplain management, and
2. Fully integrating green infrastructure into community planning efforts.
