The planning team for the East and West Nishnabotna River Watershed and Flood Resiliency Plans is organizing a Flood Resiliency Tournament. This tournament, or scenario-based exercise, is designed for stakeholders from across the watersheds to work in teams and play out potential strategies that would reduce flood risk for the region. Participants in the tournament will gain a better understanding of community-supported projects and policies aimed at improving flood resiliency within the watersheds. Furthermore, the tournament is an opportunity for networking and cross-sector collaboration among stakeholders involved during a flood response
