FEMA Releases the National Mitigation Investment Strategy
On August 13, FEMA and its federal partners, in close coordination with experts across governmental agencies, academia and non-governmental organizations, released the National Mitigation Investment Strategy (NMIS).
This NMIS provides a national, whole-community approach to investments in mitigation activities and risk management across federal, state, local, and tribal and territorial government and the private and non- profit sectors.
The Investment Strategy’s overarching goal is to improve the coordination and effectiveness of “mitigation investments,” defined as risk management actions taken to avoid, reduce, or transfer risks from natural hazards, including severe weather.
Recommendations proposed in the NMIS will reduce loss of life and injures, damage to property, and negative impacts to the economy and the environment, and lead the whole community in building a more resilient future.
Please help support FEMA’s mission of “Helping people before, during and after disasters.”
The 2018-2022 Strategic Plan creates a shared vision for the field of emergency management and sets an ambitious, yet achievable, path forward to unify and further professionalize emergency management across the country. We invite all of our stakeholders and partners to also adopt these priorities and join us in building a stronger Agency and a more prepared and resilient Nation.
