Roundtable on Climate Change Impacts to Bay Area Energy Assets and Interdependent Infrastructures—BACRDR brought together federal, state, local, and private sector representatives to discuss coordination of flood mapping and assessment activities and chart a path forward to collaboratively address sea-level rise and coastal storm surge threats and consequences.

Risk Mitigation Workshop Series—BACRDR spearheaded workshops across the U.S. with The Infrastructure Security Partnership (TISP), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Association of Flood Plain Managers, and others to identify how to raise community awareness and action to upgrade aging and deteriorating infrastructures.
