From the Executive Summary: "The National Mitigation Investment Strategy ('NMIS' or Investment Strategy) is a single national strategy for advancing mitigation investment to reduce risks posed by natural hazards (for example, sea level rise, droughts, floods, hurricanes, tornados, wildfires, earthquakes) and increasing the nation's resilience to natural hazards. The Investment Strategy's objective is to identify and measure the effectiveness of mitigation investments, and inform decisions on when and where to make investments. The Investment Strategy encourages the whole community-- including individuals--to invest in mitigation, pre- and post-disaster, by adopting the Investment Strategy's three shared goals. Supporting recommendations focus specifically on how the Federal Government and nonfederal partners can identify, support, influence, and align whole community mitigation investments. The MitFLG [Mitigation Framework Leadership Group] will coordinate the Investment Strategy implementation, carried out by the whole community. The MitFLG will periodically evaluate the success of implementation efforts."
