Northeast Florida Survey on Resilience
« on: July 25, 2019, 01:27:52 PM »
The Northeast Florida Regional Council (NEFRC) recently launched a regional survey on resilience. Resilience is defined as the ability to prepare and plan for, absorb, recover from and more successfully adapt to adversity.  It is also the ability of a community to "bounce back" after hazardous events.

This brief survey focuses on resiliency in the context of hurricanes, storms and flooding. This is your opportunity to provide valuable input about what priorities are most important to you. The results will help facilitate local conversations across the region. Please take a moment to complete the survey below by following the link and clicking on the icon in the top right corner of the webpage:

In addition to the survey, the Council recently launched the Regional Resilience Exposure Tool (R2ET), an interactive GIS platform that allows users to overlay coastal flooding layers (i.e. storm surge, sea level rise) with other data layers (i.e. population density, critical infrastructure, priority ecosystems). One of the data layers utilizes the results of NFWF’s Coastal Resilience Assessment of the Jacksonville and Lower St. Johns River Watershed. The tool can be accessed at the link above.

Thanks for posting, Sean!
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?
