Based on the needs identified in the five partner communities, the VERI team developed '101' guidance, checklists and more advanced tools that communities and businesses can use to weather the next storm.
The VERI report describes the data gathering, the community ranking process, the community engagement, the review of policies and steps to identify project recommendations. This information is useful to any region or community working to reduce its flood risks and protect its businesses and economy from future floods.
