Communities need to consider approaches for reducing the costs and suffering from flooding which are more effective then current approaches used in national programs. These approaches must move from how to build in the floodplain to what are the cumulative impacts of current and future development on other properties. To avoid transferring flooding problems from one property to another, and to reduce community liability, the No Adverse Impact approach presents communities with viable options. This session will cover the building blocks which a community can use to incorporate No Adverse Impact approaches to reduce its risk exposure and flood damages.
