Gilbert F. White National Flood Policy Forum

A fundamental goal of the ASFPM Foundation is to foster research and education to support efforts in reducing flood losses and improving floodplain management in the United States. The Gilbert F. White National Flood Policy Forum was initiated by the foundation in order to periodically convene experts in floodplain management to explore pressing issues in the field and set out ideas for resolving them. From these forums we hope to grow a broader and deeper understanding of what it is that we still need to know, how we can better apply what we already know, and what paths may still be unexplored in our attempts to improve management of our nation’s floodplains. Only with that understanding can we move forward with needed research, policy modifications and other actions.
