Risk communication skills are essential for coastal community leaders in order to successfully implement resilience planning. A project to build risk community capacity transferred lessons learned in New Jersey following Superstorm Sandy to develop a two-day risk communication and technical assistance workshop for coastal decision makers. The project produced several resources that can help others interested in developing coastal risk communication trainings.
About this resource
Identifying risk communication goals and the right audience are just two early steps in the risk communication process. These posters will help you capture what you know about your audience and what you need to learn about them to engage effectively. You can use these tools to create a communications strategy by digging into the specifics about how best to engage.
