Additionally, a special session was held in which the next phase of the 2019-2024 HFIP strategic plan was discussed. This phase includes improving the forecasting and communication of storm surge from tropical cyclones, incorporating risk communication research to create more effective watches & warnings, and developing probabilistic risk products with a focus on vulnerable communities and industries through the use of social, behavioral, and economic sciences.
