ASFPM National Flood Programs and Policies in Review 2007

ASFPM supports a risk management approach that restores and preserves natural coastal and riverine dynamics. Although more national attention has been paid to sea-level rise and coastal flooding concerns, ASFPM policy emphasizes as co-equal the need for data, planning, hazard mitigation, and implementation of adaption strategies to address changing inland climatic patterns as well.

ASFPM's focus is on promoting adaptation strategies for communities to contend with the potential adverse impacts of climate change. Additionally, ASFPM recognizes the role natural floodplains play in carbon absorption, filtering polluted runoff, and recharging water supplies, among many other benefits. Finally, we are committed to environmentally sustainable corporate management principles and encourage our members to adopt sustainable practices.
