Mitigation Framework: Guiding Principles

Side effects of Mitigation and Risk

Risk and Mitigation

Be careful that in trying to mitigate one area that it does not adversely affects other areas. Case in point. The National flood insurance says that if you build a 500 year leave you have a less than 2 percent chance so you don’t have to pay flood insurance. It does not exclude new development. Now everyone wants to develop in a flood plain and build a levee around it. The problem is what happens down river. You just flooded everybody down river and did not pay into the insurance fund that is going to have to pay for the problem. The lesson is to make sure one document does not affect another idea.
