NATIONAL MITIGATION EFFORTS

QUOTE: "When local communities or individual agencies that implement preventive, protective, or resilient measures choose not to act or are not treated as complete partners, many actions of the federal/state turn out to be for naught. This “push” methodology by federal/state government(s) needs to combine with or shift to a “pull” approach initiated by local communities. If the communities and individuals where mitigation acts are resourced and enacted created the demand-side of the investment equation, then an environment of satisfying mitigation needs would be created rather than a top-down attitude of dictation and enforcement. The state/federal focus would shift from trying to convince locals to act, to a focus on organizing and resourcing to keep up with locally-driven requirements within the context of federal mitigation programs."
