Sustainable and Resilient Remediation
Georgia Environmental Conference, 2015 presentation by Madeliene Kellman, Brownfields Coordinator, Environmental Protection Division
Statewide campaign supported by the Georgia Emergency Management Agency/Homeland Security (GEMA/HS) aimed at motivating Georgians to take action to prepare for a disaster. Ready Georgia provides further guidance on the three most important steps you can take to protect you and those in your care: Make a Plan, Build a Kit, Get Ready Kids, Ready Your Business.
The GCMP (Georgia Coastal Management Program) has established the Coastal Hazards Specialty Area of study including Climate Change/Sea-Level Rise in Coastal Georgia, which will address the need for more data, information and planning.
The GCMP (Georgia Coastal Management Program) completed a document to guide the coast in community redevelopment after a major natural disaster (e.g. building setbacks, building repair restrictions, shoreline hardening or retreat, and redevelopment of publicly funded infrastructure). The guide also evaluates the need for new or revised state policies on the post-disaster repair and rebuilding of permitted piers, docks, and marinas.
