October 7, 2021: Manitoba Branch Webinar: The Flood Risk Management Life Cycle, Doug Bellomo
As our climate and landscapes change so do flood hazards and risks. Individuals, academics, government officials, volunteer and non-profit organizations, and the private sector all play a role in reducing loss of life and damage, damage to improved property and harm to the environment. Thus managing flood risk effectively is more than just assessing the hazard and sharing the information. Effective flood risk management means also engaging the public in discussions about what they value, developing plans to safeguard what matters, taking action, adapting, and monitoring change over time. In this webinar, Doug Bellomo with AECOM will present a life cycle approach to flood risk management along with some strategies for getting ahead of the next flood and recovering stronger after disaster does strike so future generations can enjoy more of the benefits and less of the risk inherent in our relationship with water.
Doug Bellomo is Vice President in the water business line at AECOM focusing in the area of flood risk management and resilience. Previously Doug served as a senior technical advisor for flood risk management at the US Army Corps of Engineers Institute for Water Resources working in the areas of Dam and Levee Safety, the National Flood Risk Management Program, coastal flood risk management efforts, and floodplain management services. Before joining the US Army Corps, Doug was the Director of the Risk Analysis Division within the Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration at the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
