ANNOUNCING THE 4TH STORMS, FLOODING & SEA LEVEL DEFENSE CONFERENCE
WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 3, 2021
0800 – U.S. PACIFIC TIME TO 1300 U.S. PACIFIC TIME VIA ZOOM
The Storms, Flooding & Sea Level Defense conference will be the fourth conference produced by the Propeller Club of Northern California and the Society of American Military Engineers.
This year’s SFSLD 2021 conference will look at:
* Modernizing dredging practices in the United States
* Nature-based solutions to defend against flooding in California, New York, Texas, Louisiana, Florida, and the Netherlands
* Strategies to fast-track regulatory approvals
* Port strategies to address sea level rise and flooding: Hawaii, Mississippi river ports and Rotterdam
The conferences grew out of the initiatives of California ports including the Ports of Oakland, San Francisco, Long Beach and Los Angeles and have subsequently expanded to include ports around the United States. The ports share their plans to address storms, flooding, and higher sea levels and examine the impact on port operations, commerce and the wider community.
The SFSLD conferences have also benefited from collaboration with experts in the Netherlands, including the Port of Rotterdam, Deltares, Royal Haskoning, the Dutch government’s Rijkswaterstaat and from Jeroen Aerts, Director Department of Water and Climate Risk, VU University of Amsterdam.
