What Is Your Community’s Level of Flood Resilience?
This scorecard helps communities visualize the actions that other communities up and downstream of them have taken to minimize economic risks during a flood. Such actions can help – or lack of actions can harm – surrounding communities during a flood event. Scorecard users should recognize that the suite of policies towns have adopted must be both enforced and implemented holistically in a community (e.g., not removing a village from a fluvial erosion hazard area) to provide effective resilience during a flood. Additionally, there may be a variety of other actions that towns with high ratings in this scorecard can take to be most resilient in a flood.
