PrepTalks: Land Use Planning for Community Resilience [video]   [open html - 43KB]

"In his PrepTalk, Dr. Philip Berke explains how effective land use planning strengthens community resilience, through sharing research that shows 'preventative land use policies have the highest benefit-cost ratios and Community Rating System incentives, yet are the least used actions to reduce vulnerability and promote mitigation.' He is a Professor of Land Use and Environmental Planning at College Station, Texas A&M, and Director of the Institute for Sustainable Communities there. He co-authored 'Natural Hazard Mitigation: Recasting Disaster Policy and Planning,' selected as one of the 100 Essential Books in Planning of the 20th century by the American Planning Association Centennial Great Books."
