ABSTRACT

Guide to Expanding Mitigation: Making the Connection with Agriculture   [open pdf - 9MB]

From the Document: "When there is a disaster, such as a major flood, and food is at risk, it is too late to start the mitigation actions that would help local farmers. Communities need to incorporate an agriculture perspective in their current hazard mitigation planning to add protections now, before the next disaster. Agriculture advocacy organizations, farmers, and industry experts can be engaged during the Hazard Mitigation Plan process to share their insights on vital local crops and resiliency challenges. The 'Guide to Expanding Mitigation' shows how community officials can work together with the agriculture sector to support hazard mitigation, including the planning process. This guide is a starting place for community officials to initiate a conversation about mitigation investments that make agriculture more resilient."
