The forum is targeted primarily toward practitioners to better understand the needs each party faces in the planning-design-construction process and how disciplines can work more collaboratively toward a common solution.
A study presentation and discussion on the perception and impacts of flood insurance in coastal Louisiana will immediately follow the workshop. This presentation is open to the public and all workshop participants.
