Tyndall AFB: Coastal Resilience in Support of Mission Assurance and Becoming an Installation of the Future
Date: July 16, 2020 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Speaker: Joe Rozza P.E., BCEE | Director of Strategic Sustainability | Jacobs
Webinar description: Coastal installations face a range of risks due to extreme weather, sea level rise and storm surge. During this session we will share the approach developed by Tyndall AFB to pursue coastal resilience using innovative planning, engineering and partnerships. This approach reconciles UFC requirements and the various climate change, resilience and adaptation directives into a coherent approach that supports mission assurance, cost effectiveness and pursuit of the goal of becoming a resilient, sustainable and smart Installation of the Future. A Key focal point will include the ‘system of system’s approach that integrates grey, green and natural infrastructure to increase resilience while also creating locally-relevant shared social, environmental and economic benefits. The stakeholder engagement process and OTA partnerships that are in development to gain alignment and support for the nature-based elements of the coastal resilience strategy will also be shared.
