Description

A guidance document to help communities across the country develop hazard mitigation plans. Although hazard mitigation plans are not necessarily identical to adaptation planning efforts, there is significant overlap between the two. The guidance and resources in this handbook can also be used for adaptation planning. The handbook includes information about assembling stakeholders and conducting outreach, determining community capabilities, assessing the potential for harm, and developing hazard mitigation strategies. It also contains checklists and worksheets for use throughout the hazard mitigation process.
