COASTAL RESILIENCE AT THE 4th ANNUAL NATIONAL TRIBAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE!
On September 20-22, The Nature Conservancy’s Coastal Resilience program was represented at the 4th Annual Conference of the National Tribal Emergency Management Council (NTEMC). The NTEMC brings Tribes and Tribal emergency management organizations from around the Nation together to share information and best practices and to discuss public safety, public health and homeland security issues affecting those in Indian Country. The NTEMC is committed to providing guidance and tools for member tribes to develop sustainable and all-hazard approaches to emergency management.
As Coastal Resilience is designed to highlight the role of natural infrastructure in protecting communities, nature, and livelihoods by reducing coastal flood risk, there is natural alignment between our organizational goals. Kelly Leo, a Coastal Project Director with our California Coastal Resilience Program, introduced our Coastal Resilience approach during a dedicated conference session, and at a display table throughout the conference to scope possible alignment for California and Conservancy-wide Coastal Resilience efforts.
