FEMA Region 9 recently announced the launch of the Level Up Audio Project —Season 3!
The Level Up Audio project is an audio series (aka podcast) dedicated to highlighting individuals who are making hazard mitigation planning and action a priority in their work and communities. Season 3 includes:
Episode 1: Equitable Climate Action Planning in Oakland, CA
Episode 2: Assessing Seismic Vulnerability in Clark County, NV
Episode 3: Proactive Policy for Coastal Resilience in Kaua’i, HI
Episode 4: Hazard Mitigation With the Morongo Band of Mission Indians
Episode 5: Mitigating Drought With the City of Woodland, CA
Each episode features a roughly 20-minute conversation with individuals who share stories, best practices, and lessons learned. The goal is to inspire mitigation action and strengthen the community of hazard mitigation and climate adaptation professionals working at the local level. You can listen to the Level Up Audio Project on the Georgetown Climate Center webpage (or streaming on Apple, Spotify, and iHeartRadio). One episode that might be of particular interest is Episode 3 - which highlights work to develop a setback policy and a sea level rise zoning district on the island of Kaua’i, and how such policies protect people, property, and ecosystems in the face of climate change.
