The Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote education, policies, and activities that mitigate current and future losses, costs, and human suffering caused by flooding.
The Digital Coast is both a partnership and information management initiative whereby NOAA leverages the partnership’s ideas, resources, and feedback to provide relevant and informative data sets, tools, and training for use by floodplain managers, planners, and decision-makers. The freely available resources from the Digital Coast can be used by state, regional, and local entities in their flood loss reduction and ecosystem management efforts. Tools and data created by the Digital Coast are critical to long-term coastal community resilience and adaptation in the face of threats, such as more intense tropical storms and sea level rise.
Training resources from the ASFPM include webinars, classroom trainings, a calendar of upcoming events, and additional resources.
