Game of Floods Training for Decision-Makers and City Staff

The Game of Floods is an interactive game-based exercise to help participants
understand the process of conducting a vulnerability and risk assessment and
think about strategies to protect city assets from existing and future flooding.
The game is played in a series of steps and integrated into a presentation.
Attendees progress through the steps from climate science, to asset inventory,
to vulnerability, risk, and adaptation planning.

The game uses real-world examples to help develop customizable training
materials for city governments. The focus is on one impact (flooding) within
two sectors: transportation and stormwater management. The climate training
includes a customizable toolkit that local governments can use to train their
own staff on opportunities to support progress on climate adaptation and
resilience. The toolkit includes real-world examples gathered from cities and
partners, and customizable template training materials that embed equity and
climate justice principles.
