Brownbag Presentation

< p class=MsoNormal style='mso-margin-top-alt:auto\;mso-margin-bottom-alt:au to\;mso-outline-level:3'>February 28th\, 2022 \; 12:00PM-1:00PM

Brownbag will be held at the Susan Shipman Environmental Learning Cente r @ GADNR Coastal Regional Headquarters\; One Conservation Way\, Brunswick \, GA 31520

Please join the GA Coastal Management Progr am for a Brownbag Presentation from Meghan Angelina with GADNR Coastal Res ources Division on \;The Georgia Flood Literacy Project.

Terms related to flood hazards are being used inconsistently and interch angeably among professionals and the public. This presentation will review the Georgia Flood Literacy Project\, an effort to unite 30 professionals from various sectors of the field to see what flood terms are being used a nd how they are being used.

One of the major goals of this group\, known as the Flood Literacy Taskforce\, was to work toward clear\, consis tent\, widely applicable\, and scientifically accurate definitions of floo d terminology. These terms were compiled into professional and public vers ions of a Glossary of Flood Terms. An ArcGIS StoryMap was created to highlight the project and serve as a resource for flo od terms.

The way flood terms are used could determine how a commu nity will \;prepare\, adapt\, and recover \;when faced with a disaster. Accurate and clear terminology is necessary when providing in formation regarding the amount of flooding and its causes\, so that everyo ne can have the knowledge they need to make safe decisions. Ultimately\, i mproving communication between groups of professionals and with the public could lead to more \;resilient coastal communities.
